Listbox.Clear()

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 vb.net 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

        ListBox.Items.clear()

        ListBox.clear()

        txtguess.Text = ""

        listguess.Text = ""

        lblinfo.Text = ""

        btnguess.Enabled = True

        Randomize()

    End Sub

Open in new window

Replace change the case of clear() to Clear(), like this

ListBox.Items.Clear()

and remove ListBox.clear()
