Code Clean Up

I want to clean this code up.  I want to use the listbox and cycle through the items in the list box and add the files that way, this way i can take an unlimited number of entries.  I know in vba i could use listindex to determine where in the listbox the item was, not sure how to to it in vb, in help is appreciated!

You can use the same approach

Listbox1.Items(index)

and Items collection has IndexOf property

BuggyCoderCommented:
once you have added all the items in list box, you can use the following code to iterate over those items:-
foreach(var item in listBox1.Items)
{
//do your magic here...
}

BuddyCoder,

thx, now one step further is this true that i can use this syntax to obtain the reference number / index  / #in the list box order
Listbox1.Items(index)
0
BuggyCoderCommented:
to obtain the index of an item from list box use this:-
foreach(var item in listBox1.Items)
{
int index = listBox1.Items.IndexOf(item);
//do your magic here...
}

Open in new window


the code given by you in last post will give you the listitem at the index specified by you, if you want to know the index of the item use the above snippet....
