In a Windows form application, I'm collecting a beginning number and an ending number and I want to iterate through the range and insert each value into a listbox. I'm pretty new to vb.net and would appreciate any help you can provide me.

Something like the following perhaps?

Dim startNr As Integer = 10
Dim endNr As Integer = 40
 
For i = startNr To endNr
   lstMyNumbers.Add(i.ToString())   ' though ToString is not necessary, I think '
Next

Open in new window

Apologies, line 5 should read:

lstMyNumbers.Items.Add(i)

Your right. tostring is not neccessary and I was going to tell you 'Add' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.ListBox'. Adding 'Item' was the key. Thanks for the quick response.

Why do you grade a B when you don't first give me a follow-up comment on why this is not completely to your satisfaction? Grading at EE is not like school, instead they follow the 10 points must principle: it's an A unless....

Please reconsider your grade if you agree, or follow-up with an explanation so that I understand where you're coming from: http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp?hi=404
