Hello - can anybody point me to a good sample of how to program a dual list box in ASP.NET 2.0, using VB?

(two list boxes, side by side; user double-clicks an item from the left-hand list box (or single-click's it, and clicks a button), and it drops off the left-hand list box and appears on the right-hand list box)

Thanks

Mark

I have created a sample page which demonstrates the key principals you are looking for.
<%@ Page Language="VB" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
 
<script runat="server">
 
    Protected Sub LinkButton1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        If (ListBox1.SelectedIndex >= 0) Then
            ListBox2.ClearSelection()
            Dim tmpItem As ListItem = ListBox1.SelectedItem
            ListBox1.Items.Remove(tmpItem)
            ListBox2.Items.Add(tmpItem)
        End If
    End Sub
 
    
    Protected Sub LinkButton2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        If (ListBox2.SelectedIndex >= 0) Then
            ListBox1.ClearSelection()
            Dim tmpItem As ListItem = ListBox2.SelectedItem
            ListBox2.Items.Remove(tmpItem)
            ListBox1.Items.Add(tmpItem)
        End If
    End Sub
</script>
 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>

<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">

        <asp:ListItem>Item B</asp:ListItem>

    </asp:ListBox></td>
    <td>
        <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" OnClick="LinkButton1_Click" >></asp:LinkButton><br />
        <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton2" runat="server" OnClick="LinkButton2_Click" ><</asp:LinkButton>
    </td>
    <td><asp:ListBox ID="ListBox2" runat="server"></asp:ListBox></td>
    </tr>
