I'm sure this is very simple, but --> How the heck do I check an item as it's being added to the checkedlistbox via sqlreader?

Code:

Do While drReader5.Read()
            lstCompAgainstCH.Items.Add(drReader5.Item("search_string"))

            If drReader5.Item("is_checked") = True Then
                lstCompAgainstCH.SetItemChecked(Me.lstCompAgainstCH.SelectedIndex, True)  --> this is the line that's killing me -> what is the index of the current value just added?
            End If

            lstAgainstItemsCount = lstAgainstItemsCount + 1
        Loop

Why don't you do all when you add the item ?

lstCompAgainstCH.Items.Add(drReader5.Item("search_string"), drReader5.Item("is_checked"))

Sweet. I actually solved it just a moment after posting the question, but I prefer yer solution! I did this:

If drReader5.Item("is_checked") = True Then
                lstCompAgainstCH.SetItemChecked(lstAgainstItemsCount, True)
            End If
