I am creating a form that has a ASP:listbox as a sales receipt containing three columns, I can not get the three column to align, I have the font set to Courier New, the text is being printed Ok, what could be wrong?
Sub printReceipt(ByVal array(), ByVal entries)
        Dim index As Integer
        'Format receipt list box with three columns, 30 x 40 x 20
        Dim strfmt As String = "{0,-30}{1,-40}{2,20}"
        'Clear out receipt list box
        lstReceipt.Items.Clear()
        'Print header for receipt list box
        Call initialiseListbox()
        'Print salse to receipt list box
        For index = 0 To entries - 1
            lstReceipt.Items.Add(String.Format(strfmt, array(index * 3), array(index * 3 + 1), array(index * 3 + 2)))
        Next
        'Print footer for receipt list box
        lstReceipt.Items.Add(String.Format(strfmt, "-------", "------", "----"))
        lstReceipt.Items.Add(String.Format(strfmt, "", "", "TOTAL: " & Session("total")))
    End Sub
 
    Sub initialiseListbox()
        Dim strfmt As String = "{0,-30}{1,-40}{2,20}"
        lstReceipt.Items.Add(String.Format(strfmt, "SPECIES", "WEIGHT", "COST"))
        lstReceipt.Items.Add(String.Format(strfmt, "-------", "------", "----"))
    End Sub

I would try using tables. It's alot easier aligning colums with tables. See if that works
