Update checked listbox items
Posted on 2009-05-11
I have a checked list box on a windows form that I need to update the items that are checked. The checkedlistbox is already populated with predefined items. I need check the values in the list box that have been previously selected by the user. The previously selected values have been stored in a comma seperated string. As an example, the CheckListBox has the following items
When the user last updated the record, he selected Value1 & Value4. Those values were stored in a database field as follows: "Value1, Value4". I now need to first check to make sure Value1 and Value4 still exist in the checkbox list. If they do exist I need to show them as being checked. If they don't exist I need to add them to the list and then show them as being checked.
I am hoping that is possible but cant figure out how to do it.
