Or ListBox.Items.Clear()

Can't remember which it is off the top of my head but it is one of these two.

if you are using 2005 then listbox.items.clear() is the syntax

neither of those are working.... :(
listbox.clear: Error- 'clear' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.ListBox'.
listbox.items.clear(): Error- Reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference.
 Private Sub Btnreset_enter(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Btnreset.Click
        txtguess.Text = ""
        listguess.Text = ""
        lblinfo.Text = ""
        btnguess.Enabled = True
    End Sub

Open in new window
