In vb.net 2005, winforms, how do you traverse a multiselect Listbox ? I need to extract the selected values, and build a SQL Select statement.  I can write the loop, but Listbox.Selected() is not recognized (must be for Webforms). Thank you.

No ... that example refers to Classic ASP ... I am using VB.NET WinForms.

    Dim strWhere As String = "WHERE sClass IN("
 
 
    Dim i As Integer = 0
    Dim str As String = ""
    For i = 0 To ListBox1.SelectedItems.Count - 1
      strWhere &= "'" & ListBox1.SelectedItems(i).ToString() & "',"
    Next
 
 
    strWhere = strWhere.TrimEnd(",") & ")"

The value of my strWhereUnit variable becomes, during output:
     Or P.intUnitFK = 'System.Data.DataRowView'
for each Selected Item. I am supposed to get integers as values.

Dim strWhere As String = ""
 For i = 0 To Me.lstLkUnit.SelectedItems.Count - 1
    strWhereUnit += " Or P.intUnitFK = '" + Me.lstLkUnit.SelectedItems(i).ToString() + "'"
 Next i

Thank you

Oh you've databound it.  Try this where DataColumnName is the name of the column that contains that value that you want.
Dim strWhere As String = ""
 For i = 0 To Me.lstLkUnit.SelectedItems.Count - 1
    strWhereUnit += " Or P.intUnitFK = '" + CType(Me.lstLkUnit.SelectedItems(i), DataRowView).Item("DataColumnName").ToString() + "'"
 Next i

OK, that worked.  Guess I need to look up CType, and bound Listboxes. My Listbox is actually bound to a bindingsource object.  This probably should have been worth more points ...
Thanks much !

The essence was that I needed to realize that I was traversing a DATABOUND Listbox.
