        Using cn As New SqlConnection(strConn)
            Using da As New SqlDataAdapter(m_strSQL, cn)
                da.Fill(dt)
            End Using
        End Using

        Me.Text = m_strTitle
        bs1.DataSource = New DataView(dt)
        bs1.Sort = "Name"
        bs1.Filter = "Selected = 0"
        lbxUnSelectedItems.DataSource = bs1
        lbxUnSelectedItems.ValueMember = "Id"
        lbxUnSelectedItems.DisplayMember = "Name"

        bs2.DataSource = New DataView(dt)
        bs2.Sort = "Name"
        bs2.Filter = "Selected = 1"
        lbxSelectedItems.DataSource = bs2
        lbxSelectedItems.ValueMember = "Id"
        lbxSelectedItems.DisplayMember = "Name"
        tbxQtySelected.Text = lbxSelectedItems.Items.Count

Open in new window


What code can I write to update the "Selected" field of dt to "1" for every item in the lbxUnSelectedItems.SelectedItems collection?  (Note: lbxUnSelectedItems is a listbox)

foreach(DataRowView d in lbxUnSelectedItems.SelectedItems.Cast<DataRowView>().ToList())
{
    ((DataSet1.DataTable2Row)d.Row).Selected = 1;
}

Open in new window

Calling ToList is important because you're modifying the SelectedItems collection, so you need to work on a copy of it.

I'm trying to convert this to vb.net and didn't find a "ToList" method.  Any ideas?

        For Each drv As DataRowView In lbxUnSelectedItems.SelectedItems
            drv.Row("Selected") = 1
        Next

Here's the vb.net code that worked:
        For Each drv As DataRowView In lbxUnSelectedItems.SelectedItems.Cast(Of DataRowView).ToList
            drv.Row("Selected") = 1
        Next
You convert the SelectObjectsCollection to an array of DataRowView using the Cast method, then create a list from that.  The DataRow of the underlying datatable is exposed by the Row property of the DataRowView object.

Thanks.
