Hello,

I have a ListBox control that is being populated in code (from a SQL query).

How do I set the selected items to an ArrayList?


Protected Sub btnGo_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnGo.Click

        Dim arrBrand As ArrayList

        For Each item As ListItem In lstBxBrand.Items
            If item.Selected = True Then
                arrBrand.Add(item.Text)
            End If
        Next

End Sub


This is giving me a "Object reference not set to an instance of an object", on:

                arrBrand.Add(item.Text)



Thank you.

You have missed to initialize the array object.

The correct code would be like;
Protected Sub btnGo_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnGo.Click

        Dim arrBrand As ArrayList = New ArrayList()

        For Each item As ListItem In lstBxBrand.Items
            If item.Selected = True Then
                arrBrand.Add(item.Text)
            End If
        Next

End Sub

Change the following line:

Dim arrBrand As ArrayList

to

Dim arrBrand As New ArrayList
