collection and data type

Isn't there a way to declare a collection to hold a certain data type?  What the syntax?

Can I add items into the list and specify a index value, like with collections?   And then retrieve the items using that index?
Avatar of Miguel Oz
As mentioned  by first comment above use a generic list, look at it as type safe collection:
Dim list As New List(Of String)
'Add items
list.Add("test 0")
' index access
Dim entry As String = list(0)
'Insert at index, be aware that index < count.
list.Insert(0,"test 0000")
