Multi column vb.net listbox

I have a form see attached, I would like the bottom listbox to show other columns from the stored procedure but not sure how

currently the listbox is populated with one column

   Private Sub CBCWSelectedItems_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles CBCWSelectedItems.SelectedIndexChanged
        Dim selectedIndex As Integer
        selectedIndex = CBCWSelectedItems.SelectedIndex
        Dim selectedItem As Object
        selectedItem = CBCWSelectedItems.SelectedItem
        'MessageBox.Show("Selected Item Text: " & selectedItem.ToString() & Microsoft.VisualBasic.Constants.vbCrLf &
        '                "Index: " & selectedIndex.ToString())
        ListMatrix.DataSource = GetMatrixData(selectedItem.ToString()).AsEnumerable().Select(Function(r) r.Field(Of String)("Word")).ToList()

    End Sub

Open in new window




the SP does this
o
      SELECT [dbo].[TblWords].Word, [ClientName],[StrFull]
      FROM [dbo].TblWords
      WHERE [word]= 'f18' and [StrFull] like 'f18'+N'%'
      GROUP BY [Word], [ClientName],[StrFull]
      ORDER BY [Word]

Hi,

ListBox control has MultiColumn Property. Which will show values of one field in multiple columns (Horizontal Columns).

But, If you want to show multiple column, you have to use DataGridView or ListView control.

I experimented and did this

DataGridView1.DataSource = GetMatrixData("F18")

works fine
