Hi,

I CAN get the selected item from a listbox without a problem.  But I'm having trouble
when I want to get the first item or the second.  There are so many methods, yet I can't seem to find the one that's right for me.  The content is a string and I'd just like to retrive the string, one by one, for the entir list.

It would be a big help to me if I could solve this ASAP.

Thanks.

There is a property for a listbox called datasource. U can use it

listbox1.dataSource = dataTable

Then loop through the datatable.U should know the column of the datatable that is mapped to the listbox. Eg:If it is column called "first"

for(int i=0;i<=datatable.rows.count -1;i++)
{
  string str = datatable[i]["first"];
}

How about trying this:

ListBox lb = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListBox();

// Databind the list here

// Examine the list as below:
foreach (ListItem item in lb.Items)
{
  // Here there is read and write access to the following properties
  item.Text = "Text value";
  item.Value = "Value value";
}
