I am just starting to use visual studio, can anyone give me an example of code that returns values to a list box on the click of a button. I'm not bothered what the values are just won't to see how its done?

with you can do something like this
<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="ListBox_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:ListBox runat="server" ID="lstbxTest">
    <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtTest"></asp:TextBox>
    <asp:Button runat="server" ID="btnAdd" Text="Add" />

==============CODE BEHIND=======================

Partial Class ListBox_Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub btnAdd_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAdd.Click
        lstbxTest.Items.Add(New ListItem(txtTest.Text, txtTest.Text))

    End Sub
End Class

sorry I'm using windows applications

I really just want to see a command to populate a list box with values, do I need to use asp to do this?
