Programmatically Deselecting Items In A Multiselect Listbox
Hi.

Well another cute question ... I'm running Access 2000 and I have a multiselect listbox where I'm trolling thru contact records and as part of my refresh/display of the new contact, I need to reset all of the selected items in the listbox from the previous record in order to reselect the items for the new record. I can do it the "grunt" way by running a loop and testing the Selected flag ... I would however prefer a better method where hopefully just a simple command will do the trick .... Any ideas?

Thanks.

Listbox / Multiselect / Alphabetical Select
When I Press any key on my keyboard...I want to have the item highlighted which is as near as possible...
"A" should result in the first item which start with A...after "A" I press...."B" and I get some item which starts with AB selected...

I found some code which works fine when you have a normal listbox..when I use a MultiSelect box it doesn't work anymore...with a normal box it works perfect


VB Code:
Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Integer, ByVal lParam As Any) As LongConst LB_FINDSTRING = &H18F Private Sub Text1_Change()    'Retrieve the item's listindex    List1.ListIndex = SendMessage(List1.hwnd, LB_FINDSTRING, -1, ByVal CStr(Text1.Text))End Sub

How To Select Items From Listbox
Hey guys I have this assignment where i am to create a calculator as attached:

Basically I am to input the 2 inputs to be calculated into the 2 input boxes lst v1 and v2, and select from the lst Oper box the function I wish to perfrom for example +, -, / and * my question is, is how within the program do i make it so that the item selected by the user within the lstOper box is performed? i understand if it were a button but how can i get the program to understand that i have selected that particular function from the list either being a plus or minus?

Listbox Select Items
I have a listbox that presents 2 different numbers on each line of the listbox, they are related form a previous calculation and appended together with 5 blank spaces between the numbers so the user can tell them apart when they are scrolling down the list. I want to have the user click on one of these items, the 2 numbers, in the listbox, and display just one of the numbers.

Can I trim that particular variable in the listbox somehow after I've selected it? so only one of the numbers can be presented in another textbox.

Or better yet, can I have two different listboxes that are related somehow so when the user selects something on one box it automatically selects the related item on the same line in the other listbox. Then I won't have to append in the first place and will have better control over the variables.

Thanks

Highlight/Select Certain Items In A Listbox [VB6]
Given a RecordSet (oRecs) that contains a list (one column) of names and a ListBox [lbNames] that has the entire list of all names possible (for my program).
What I need to do is highlight/select all the names in the listbox [lbNames] that are in the RecordSet (oRecs).

Meaning - the user selects a group and this generates the oRecs recordset with corresponding Names in that group, given that recordset I want to highlight all the names in the listbox that correspond to that group.
So, something like the following pseudo-code

[Pseudo Code]
for each NAME in the RecordSet oRecs
find the item in the ListBox and Highlight it
[Pseudo Code]

This should be really simple to do no?
Any help/hints would be much appreciated, thanks

Select Multiple Items In ListBox!
A VB6 Form has 2 ListBoxes which are populated from 2 different text files. Some of the items in the 2 ListBoxes are the same i.e. such items exist in both the ListBoxes. Note that the MultiSelect property of both the ListBoxes are set to 2 - Extended. The 2 ListBoxes are named List1 & List2.

When an item is selected in List1, I want that item, if it exists in List2, to get selected automatically in List2. This is how I have done it (Thanks to Hack for his input):
VB Code:
Private Sub List1_Click()    Dim strItem As String    Dim i As Long    Dim j As Long     strItem = List1.List(List1.ListIndex)     For i = 0 To List2.ListCount - 1        If List2.List(i) = strItem Then            List2.Selected(i) = True            Exit For        Else            For j = 0 To List2.ListCount - 1                List2.Selected(j) = False            Next        End If    NextEnd Sub
The problem is when more than 1 item is selected in List1. When I select Item1 in List1 & assuming that Item1 exists in List2 as well, then Item1 gets selected in List2 - till this point, no problem but keeping Item1 selected in List1, when I next select Item2 in List1 & assuming that Item2 exists in List2, then Item2 does get selected in List2 but Item1 in List2 gets de-selected whereas I want that since both Item1 & Item2 are selected in List1, both these items should automatically get selected in List2 as well. If either Item1 or Item2 (or both) are de-selected in List1, then these 2 items in List2 should also get de-selected accordingly.

In other words, what I want is when items are selected/de-selected in List1, if those items exist in List2, then those items should automatically get selected/de-selected accordingly.

What changes are needed in the above code to implement this?

Select Items In ListBox With Right Click
I need to select the ListBox item below the cursor when the user right clicks it, so the popup menu will be over the selected item. I don't want to reposition the popup menu, it must appear in the clicked place as usual, I just want the ListBox item to be automatically selected as well.

I have tried changing the Button property to vbLeftButton at the MouseDown event but the ListBox does not consider this as a genuine left click event and it selects nothing.

Any help is very appreciated.

Removing Items From An Extended Multi-select ListBox
Hi there ...

I'm posing this question cause I'll be hanged if I remember how I did this before ... I have an extended multi-select listbox where it is loaded by the user from a combobox and a textbox ... When the user selects at least 1 row in the listbox to remove, I need to traverse the list of selected items and add them back into the combobox (Done!) and them delete the rows from the list box ... And note that iterating thru the ItemsSelected collection and removing the 1st item works but subsequent iterations fail because the Selected flag for the other items have been reset... I vaguely recall copying the itemsselected collection ... Anyone remembering this little trick, I would appreciate a refresher on it... Thanks!

Just after I posted it I figured it out. Was forgetting to put = True at the end.

lstdeductions.Selected(deductions(i) - 1) = True

Lol....oh well.

Multiselect Listbox
I need some help please!
I'm working in access 97, and I have a multiselect textbox with the "simple" option selected. I am not proficient with code, but I have the code below, that partially works.

Dim i As Integer

For i = List0.ListCount - 1 To 0 Step -1
If Me.List0.Selected(i) = True Then
Let Me.Text2 = Me.List0.ItemData(i)
End If
Next i

This fills a textbox on my form (text2) with the first selection made in a multiselect listbox (list0).
How do I fill the second text box on the form with the next selection made, and the third text box, etc.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. I need to fill up to 10 textboxes on the same form as the listbox is located.

Thanks for any help you can give - in advance.

Listbox Multiselect
I'm writing a macro in Excel and want to use a listbox. I've set the listbox to multi-select so that more than one field can be selected.

My problem is: How do I determine which items were selected? I can't use the value property with multi-select.

Some background: The listbox is populated from cells in Excel. I then want the user to select as many of the fields as he/she wants. Once all of the fields are selected, I want to use the selection to do other things. I would typically find out what was selected by using code such as "variable = lstxxx.value" . however, i can't use this because of the multi-select. Are there other ways to determine what was selected?

Listbox Multiselect ??
How can I make this code select more than one thing in the listbox at one time.


Code:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Form1.Print List1.Text
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
List1.AddItem "a"
List1.AddItem "b"
List1.AddItem "c"
End Sub

MultiSelect ListBox
I have a list box that is multiselect=Extended and I don't know how to know which items are selected. Can someone help? Thanks in advance.

Listbox.multiselect
I am constantly plagued by inefficiencies in the VB 6 language!

I have just discovered to my horror that the standard listbox control that ships with VB 6 does not allow changing the multi-select property at run-time, I have been trying to think of why it was designed like this but cannot come up with anything.

Anyway, I was wondering if there is any updated versions of the listbox control in one of the newer service packs maybe? Or if anyone has built their own listbox control to get around this problem?

Basically, in my application the user can only multiple select if a previous setting has been set:

If theProject.batch Then
'if the user is batch processing then check this option box:
Me.optBatch = True
'and allow extended multiple select:
lstScen.MultiSelect = 2 '(Crashes here)
ElseIf theProject.batch = False Then
'else check the option box that says 'just one'
Me.optOne = True
'....and don't allow multi-select:
lstScen.MultiSelect = 0
End If

Listbox Multiselect
ok guys, what im trying to do is, when i scroll over multible lines in a list box, i want it to "msgbox" me each line i have scrolled over, i have tried this, but to no luck


Code:
Dim iCount As Integer
For iCount = 1 To ListBox1.ListCount
MsgBox Listbox1(iCount).Text
DoEvents
Next iCount

Listbox && Multiselect
In my app there are two list boxes and the user can add items from the left one to the right one in several ways (double click, click the move icon and move all icon).

However, it has been requested these listboxes be multi-select but when I make them multi-select and try to add (or remove) the items they only move over one at a time, not all at the same time.

Is there an easy way around this?


VB Code:
Private Sub cmdMove_Click()    ' Move one item from left to right.    If lstLeft.ListIndex >= 0 Then        If DoesValueExistFromList(lstLeft.Text) = True Then            MsgBox "This has already been added", vbInformation, "Duplicate"        Else            lstRight.AddItem lstLeft.Selected            lstLeft.RemoveItem lstLeft.ListIndex        End If    End IfEnd Sub


Thanks,

Jim
