Hi

I've got a  System.Collections.Generic.List but now want 4 of these in a 2D array
e.g.
0, System.Collections.Generic.List
1,  System.Collections.Generic.List
2,  System.Collections.Generic.List
3,  System.Collections.Generic.List

so they can be accessed by ID instead of having 4  System.Collections.Generic.List with different variable names

How is this declared/updated? Thanks

Well an array can not have multiple types so a 2D array with double, List will not work.

You can just have a single-dimensional array of System.Collections.Generic.List then access them with the array index like so:

        'Declare your array of generic lists
        Dim arr(4) As System.Collections.Generic.List(Of Object)

        'Add your generic lists to the array
        arr(0) = New System.Collections.Generic.List(Of Object)
        arr(1) = New System.Collections.Generic.List(Of Object)
        arr(2) = New System.Collections.Generic.List(Of Object)
        arr(3) = New System.Collections.Generic.List(Of Object)

        'Access the lists through the array using the array index
        arr(0).Add("First generic list value.")
        arr(0).Add("First generic list 2nd value.")
        arr(1).Add("Second generic list value.")

        'Update list values using the array index and the list index
        arr(0)(0) = "Change the value."
        arr(0)(1) = "Change the 2nd value."

        'Access the list values in the same way
        MessageBox.Show(arr(0)(1).ToString())

Let me know if that is what you are looking for.
