Save Items In A Listbox To A Text File?

May 27, 2009

I've been trying to figure out how to do this correctly for some time now, and I have seen no insight. I'm trying to successfully save all of the items in a listbox without saving items that are not there. What I mean by saving items that are not there is when it saves, it seems that blanks magically appear in the text file.Here is a sample of my current code to save.


I'm not completely sure if it's the loading or the saving that's causing problems, but what would happen is it would add a blank item to the listbox that I do not want.Here's a picture before the listbox is saved, look to the bottom left.Now here is what it looks like after: (notice the red oval)Does any one have any idea what could be wrong?If you want me to attach the text file, just ask.

Append A Text File With Items From A Listbox?

Oct 14, 2009

I want to append a text file with items from a listbox. I tried to search for a code to do that, but couldn't find anything(most likely I don't know what I am looking for). But I wrote this code and got it to work, but after looking at the code, it looks sloppy and I'm sure could have bugs I didn't question is, is there a better code than the one I made, or will my code work fine. I am eager to write code correctly, not just get the code to work.

Private Sub Button8_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button8.Click
Dim save As New SaveFileDialog
Dim saveFile As String = save.FileName

File I/O And Registry :: Using The SaveFileDialog To Save Listbox Info Into A Text File?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm using the SaveFileDialog to save listbox info into a text file. The files save fine, but when you go to save the file, if you hit the cancel button, it will overwrite the previous file you saved, because it's name was the same and it seems to save the previous file as the new name for your next file. Is there any way to catch if the user clicks cancel, and then exiting the sub if they did?

Load Save Listbox Items?

May 26, 2009

I've got a problem, I'm making a program that gives you the choice to add items to a listbox, these items are text. When the form loads, i need it to load text from a file into a listbox. For every line I need it to add that text to the listbox. My problem is when it loads, there's an extra line, but that's only after I close the form and open it again. The reason it happens when the form unloads is because the listbox items are saved on form unload. Now, I believe the problem is my code to save the items:

Dim Env As String = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments)
For Each item In Form1.TP1.Items
Dim Save As New SaveFileDialog()

VS 2008 Retrieve The Selected Items In A Listbox - Save Them To A Collection

Jan 6, 2010

I want to retrieve the selected items in a listbox, save them to a collection, and then use that collection later. I thought that was simple enough, but when I clear the selected items in the listbox, my collections (items, indices) change. I found this out by stepping through the code.

Basically what I'm wanting to do is move items in the listbox up or down (up in this case), and still keep them selected.

2. I want to save the items in the listbox, so if I close the program and reopen it the items are still saved in the listbox.

3. The items in the listbox all start with a date, fe. "13-4" for today. If that date already passed I want that item to be deleted.

Listbox Items Colour - Two Types Of Items Populating In A Listbox (checked Listbox)

Apr 28, 2009

I am using VB.NET (version 2008). I have two types of items populating in a listbox (checked listbox). For example: lets say one is type "A" and other is "Type B". Their names maybe same so if the user sees those items in listbox then he won;t be able to determine their type until he click on them and checks out its properties. I wanted that I add each item to listbox and colour them so that blue for example means type "A" is there and red means the other. So this way I will be able to know at a glance that how many item of what type is present. I guess it may not be possible to do that in a standard checkedlistbox. I am also using component factory's krypton controls which enhance the gui of an application. But I dunno if I can progress using that.
