Visual Basic Combo Boxes... using text file..

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hello experts please help...

Ill explain how it works first

Listbox1 has complete list of products

product 1
product 2
product 3

when i press add selected item will be shown in listbox2 (example i want product 2)


product 2

after pressing button "Purchase" the program will do all calculations based on products that are in listbox2

The program then displays a message box telling me details of the customer, items from listbox2, their price, any discount, etc.

When i press Ok in messagebox the program will then use what is written in message box and display it in another textbox in another form that i can save or print as a receipt.

My problem is that i can't seem to pick up listbox2 items to display in message box or the textbox on another form.

Do you know how to properly tag listbox items and dispay them in message box?

by the way i am using visual studio 2008
