Re: Listbox advice

...I have had good feed back from customers who say the Listbox is the best for them when they are using the software... I'm sorry, I really don't understand what you are saying. The end user will be unaware of the type of control you are using; they are only interested in its appearance and usabil...

...I thought simple examples were wanted for the currently empty Beginners Forum.
Maybe i misunderstood?...
