Send LN mail to multiple address from asp.net

I want to be able to send mail to more than one mail address from asp.net (vb code behind) application. I have mail addresses as TeboxBox.Text (four text box controls) and dont know how to add them to SendTo item in code.

Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("SendTo", Textbox1.Text.Trim)

Thanks.

Not a List, you need ordinary, simple, "non-object", array of strings.
ArrayList is List, not an array.

Can you write (in whatever language you're using, VB?):

Dim slanje(2) As String

slanje(0) = adresa.Text.Trim
slanje(1) = Label1.Text.Trim
slanje(2) = Label2.Text.Trim


No answer about the country you live in? Slanje is Croatian/Serbian word, right?

Simply create an array, fill it with elements of the Textbox1 and place it in the method call, instead of Textbox1.Text.Trim param.

OK but how to separate addresses in array only with "," or ", " or ";" (without "" of course)?

I don't understand, how do you mean "separate adresses in array"?

You don't.
I mean, you separate them by assigning them to different array positions:

array(0) = "addr1"
array(1) = "addr2"
array(2) = "addr3"

if you have all the addresses in array, then do the following:-

string addList=String.join(",",yourarrref);
you will get comma separated address list in addlist variable.

here is how join works:-0

This way if I want to send one mail to 4 people I have 4 mails in sent folder. This is not what I want, I want to send one mail to 4 people and in only one mail (like in Lotus Notes client in To text box it goes Person1@blabla.com, Person2@blabla.com, Person3@blabla.com etc....).

In my example above, just copy the addlist string value in the to address field. If you assign comma separated list to the TO address field it will send one mail to all the 4 addresses and u have only 1 mail in ur sent items.

No, you don't send a String to SendTo field when you want multiple recipients, you send an array.

Have you tried that?

Can I ask where are you from? I mean, which country?

This is what I code:

Dim slanje As New ArrayList()

slanje.Add(adresa.Text.Trim)
slanje.Add(Label1.Text.Trim)
slanje.Add(Label2.Text.Trim)

Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("SendTo", slanje)

and then got:

Unknown or unsupported object type in Vector

Try This one out:-
i have replaced ','(comma) with ';' (semi-colon)

ArrayList ar = new ArrayList();
ar.Add("abc.com");
ar.Add("hello.com");
string[] arrStr=(string[])ar.ToArray(typeof(string));
string addList = String.Join(";", arrStr);

Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("SendTo", addList)

This is in C#, kindly get the idea!!!

mbonaciCommented:
There's really no need to use ArrayList if you need to create array with fixed number of Strings - meaning names/addresses (at least in Java, that is).
That's just an overhead.

Lists are good when you:
 - don't know the size of the collection
 - need to do plenty of inserts, especially inserts at different positions
