Hi All,

I want to know if there is any way of making a list box with more then one column .... I'm terrified of the DataGrid :) so I'd like to use the ListBox if possible ...

That's what I've done right now .. I just pad the strings to the max len and get a visible column but ofcourse without column functionality ...

If you want column functionality, ListView is the way to go.  What are you trying to accomplish that might prevent you from using a ListView?

No make to make list box with more than one column in web forms. If you need it read only, you can make a table or something to show the data in it. Otherwise you will need a bunch of controls, like a table with check boxes in one column, so that records can be selected, or something similar.

yeah html table is a better alternative on the web for datagrid. But datagrids are much more flexible and powerful than those..
