Ok, I am making a program for playing music.  When the user selects the song it goes into the list box as a string and so on as they choose more songs.  I want them to be able to select several songs and they can choose the next one or the previous.  It only plays the last song the user clicks on.  My code is-
Command2_click
Dim song as string
song= List1.text
MMcontrol1.filename= song
MMcontrol1.command="open"
MMcontrol1.command="Load"
End Sub

Im a bit of a noob so it might be simple:P. Thanks

Hi,

Use this:

Dim i
Dim song as string

For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
If List1.Selected(i) Then
  song=List1.List(i)
  MMcontrol1.filename= song
  MMcontrol1.command="open"
  MMcontrol1.command="Load"
end if
Next i


End If

Next i
0

remove extra

End If

Next i

in the code above


so code is :

Dim i
Dim song as string

For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
If List1.Selected(i) Then
  song=List1.List(i)
  MMcontrol1.filename= song
  MMcontrol1.command="open"
  MMcontrol1.command="Load"
End if
Next i

By the way ,

to make user able to select multi items, change the multiselect property of
the listbox to Simple.
