Hi,

I'm trying to format the output of a string so that it will create columns when displayed in a listbox.  For example, I'd like:

First Name, LastName, Age information on one string, but spaced to look orderly when there are multiple rows.  I tried simply using "\t" but soon realized that wouldn't work.

I'd like it to look like this:

Frank             Smith                42
Joseph           Anderson           55

Please give me any advice you can.

Thanks,
RA

I tend to take the lazy approach by using a fixed width type face.  My second choice is a data grid.

Use a listview, this has the option of adding columns.
