Find unselected listbox value

Hi,

I am trying to automatically get the value of an unselected and unbound listbox in my form. I need to get this value to determine what happens next in my code. My listbox is called RatingFind.

I have also tried to change my listbox to a combo box to try to get the value from this, but I can't figure out how to select this value either!

Can anyone suggest any code that I can use to get this value from my listbox?

Thanks in advance,
Susan

Do you mean you want the values of anything unselected from the listbox?
ir if the list box contains 1,2,3,4,5 and 4 is selected you want to return 1,2,3 and 5?

Hi Susan2c,
If nothing is selected in the list box then it will be null.

Otherwise if the code is in the form's module you would use something like:

if me.ratingfind = somevalue then

The value of a single-select list box, or a combo box is the value in the bound column of the row selected.  The bound column might not be the value that is displayed to the user.

The list box is unbound and it will only contain one value, if it has a value in it. The value will either be 1 or null. I don't want the user to have to select a list box for no reason, so I want to read it unselected. I know there is some code to do this, and I have tried to use the following, but it will only return null so far!

Me!RatingFind.Selected(1) = True
vartest8 = Me.RatingFind.Value
MsgBox vartest8

Thanks,
Susan

U can use ListCount

if Me.RatingFind.ListCount = 0 then
    msgbox "No Items"
else
    msgbox "First Item = " & Me.RatingFind.Column(0, 0)
end if

So are you saying that if it is null you will treat it as if it is 1?
If so, why are you testing it - and moreover, why does it exist at all?

Thanks rockiroads, that has worked.

Pete, there is either a value of 1, or it is null, and I wanted to test if there was a value there.

Thanks again,
Susan
