sorry for the poor description.
probably it's too simple question.

I want to type text in a element of a list.
I don't know how to set up the element editable (allowing user to input data).

It will be helpful if I can get a sample code.

many thanks,

You need to use some sort of hybrid control to do this, list boxes and list controls don't directly support this.

You can find some examples of how to do this here:
