I have a datagridview where the user can select multiple rows.  As the user is selecting the rows I want the first column to display in a listbox.  How would I go about this.  My attempt so far (which doesn't work):

    Private Sub DataGridView1_Mouseup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.MouseUp

        Dim selected As New ArrayList()

        Dim row As DataRow <-- it says that Datrow is not compatible with datagridview selected rows

        For Each row In DataGridView1.SelectedRows
            selected.Add(DataGridView1.SelectedRows.Item("name"))
        Next

        ListBox1.DataSource = selected

    End Sub

Try this

        Dim selected As New ArrayList()

        Dim row As DataGridViewRow

        For Each row In DataGridView1.SelectedRows
            selected.Add(row.Cells("Name").Value)
        Next

        ListBox1.DataSource = selected

@Sancler:

I know it's been a while since the solution of this topic, but I do have a small question.

Your code seems to work well, only when I select one row at the time and try to add it to the listbox, it overrides the previous inserted item.

How to solve this?
