Cancelling a remove

I have a list of information stored in a list box.

I have a remove and remove all buttons. I also have a Finish and a Cancel.

What I was looking to do was have cancel revert the changes in the list box.The main example that I can give is when you actually have removed certain elements from the list box. You then decide to click cancel, but it doesnt restore the list box.

Any ideas on how best to handle and implement this?

Hi,

I'm not entirely sure what you are asking for here.  Is the cancel supposed to act as an undo, adding the last removed item back in, or is it supposed to refresh the listbox to its original state?   Also, what sort of objects are being stored in the list box?

Cheers

At the moment the list box is just string objects but I will replace them down the line.

Well I can either take 2 roots, when I remove something I can store it in a cache until finished is clicked Which is ideal, or I can refresh back to the original state. The second method is fine as well. just once data is not lost when canceled.

The way I was thinking of doing it was to all the user to select what they want to remove, or to remove all.

Then have flags, if the user hits cancel nothing is done, but if the user hits finished it checks these flags and removes whats been requested.

Not sure if this is exactly what you were after, but the only thing I can think of would be to either a) cache a clone of  the whole dataset when you set the DataSource property, b) cache the removed items as discuessed above.  I'd probably go with b) myself.

Something like:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;

namespace WindowsApplication1 {
    class ListBoxEx : ListBox {

        System.Collections.ArrayList cvobjRemovedItems = new System.Collections.ArrayList();
        public void RemoveAt(int intIndex) {
            cvobjRemovedItems.Add(this.Items(intIndex));
            this.Items.RemoveAt(intIndex);
        }

        public void Cancel() {
            foreach (object obj in cvobjRemovedItems) {
                this.Items.Add(obj);
            }
        }

        public void ClearCache() {
            cvobjRemovedItems.Clear();
        }

    }
}

Hope this gets you started.

Cheers

Dumb question but Im doing this:

      foreach (object obj in RemoveList)
      {
        int selectedIndex = RemoveList.????
      }


How do I actually get the value that I am currently on in RemoveList out? I am putting in all selected indexes. so Im really just wondering how I get the values out.
