Hi there,

I am doing a project on VB 6. I need help on this.


Present Scenario:

I am populating a list box from a text file but the list box items goes away when program exit.

Envisioned Scenario:

1) List box items will be there even if program exit and re-start.
2) After re-start the list items needs to shuffle randomly. So say I have a list of urls like below, when program re-starts the url order needs to be changed..so I need to shuffle the list.

Sub tell()
Dim nFileNum As Integer, sText As String, sNextLine As String
 
With CommonDialog1
    .DialogTitle = "Select a file"
    .ShowOpen
End With
 
If CommonDialog1.FileName <> "" Then
 
    nFileNum = FreeFile
    Open CommonDialog1.FileName For Input As nFileNum
    
    Do While Not EOF(nFileNum)
        Line Input #nFileNum, sNextLine
