ListBox Control's Intrinsic Conversion from Double to Object Problem
Posted on 2008-10-02
Ok crowd, here is the issue. Idle_Mind and I have been dealing with another authors problem, and we have come across an interesting issue with the ListBox control. If you use the Add() method of the list box control on a Double, the lisbox's conversion from Double to Object widens the Double as expected, but unexpectedly returns junk data. To see this for yourself, add a listbox to a forn and try:
For LoopCount As Double = 1 To 2 Step 0.1
NOTE: I'm not looking for a workaround, there are any number of ways around it. This is just an academic discussion about the object itself and what the problem is or may be. If you think you know, there are points in it for you.
