CheckedListBox and multiple columns?

Hi All,
I want to be able to display 2 or more columns in a CheckedListBox on a windows form in addition to the checkbox column.

Specifically, my need is to allow a user to view the "Username" and "Email Address" (column1, and column 2) for a single row in the checkedlistbox and be able to check the corresponding check box for that row.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Terry

I'm not sure how one would display multiple columns in the standard checkedlistbox control, so I would just concatenate the two (or more) elements into a single string to put in the box...e.g....

checkedlistbox1.items.add( " username1 " + " user1 email address " )
 
Of course, depending on how you're getting your values, you'd use arrays and/or data readers to fill the box in some sort of looping structure.  If you wanted some sort of nice alignment within the box, then you'd have to mess with using some combination of substring and trim functions to make sure everything aligned nicely.
