 I am using the following VB.net code to delete all the items in a DropDownList that
contain commas - the problem is that because items get deleted, the count of items
changes and the code errors out because it runs over the index count. Ho do I avoid this ?        

  For k As Integer = 0 To L.Items.Count - 1
                s = L.Items(k).Text
                If InStr(s, ",") > 0 Then
                    'Delete item because comma was in it
                    L.Items.Remove(L.Items.FindByValue(s))
                End If
            Next
