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>

</head>

<body>

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

    <div>

        <table>

    <tr>

    <td><asp:ListBox ID="ListBox1" runat="server">

        <asp:ListItem>Item A</asp:ListItem>

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

        <asp:ListItem>Item C</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>

    </table>

    </div>

    </form>

</body>

</html>
