would probably be more like listbox1.Items.Add("hello") a lbl is usually short for label which when then be lblUsers.Text

      Dim pendingClient As TcpClient
        Dim nameOfClient As String
        pendingClient = Listener.AcceptTcpClient()
        reader = New System.IO.StreamReader(pendingClient.GetStream)
        nameOfClient = reader.ReadLine()


        MessageBox.Show(nameOfClient & " has just signed in.")

        lbUsers.DataSource = test

When I do that the listbox doesn't show anything even though nameofclient has a name in it.

Wait I can't even get a listbox to add simple text in a simple windows app.

How do you do that exactly?
HepenAuthor Commented:
Can you guys just paste a simple form1 that adds text to a listbox?
1) Drag a listbox onto the form.
2) Rename it to: lst_1
3) Double click on the grey form (form load event)
4) Paste this code and then complie:
        lb_1.Items.Add("Test Line 1")
        lb_1.Items.Add("Test Line 2")
        lb_1.Items.Add("Test Line 3")

Make sure you get the list box and not a different control!
