Hello,

I am looking for a way, in C#, to have a listbox with multiple colums, such as in a music player or similar program, where the song title, artist etc. are listed.

I am working in C# Express.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The first article is quite irrelevant - ListBox..::.MultiColumn Property property means that items are rendered in multiple columns (not that one item occupies many columns...)

Second link is quite old - not sure if it's working.

Did you consider using listView for your tasks. I believe it's not bad option if you need many columns (you just use items and subitems for each item):

Hi,
    I apologize for the first link.

    Yeah, ListView seems to be a better option. But the link provided by anarki_jimbel provides VB code.

    Here is the link for using ListView in C#.

Thanks. Using a combination of those 2 links (in the last 2 posts) I was able to do what I wanted.
