How to add second column to a listBox component? RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the moment I can only get the subfolders name of C:\Backup folder to the first column of the listBoxComputer.
    Have do I get also the last written date of subfolders to the second column of the listBoxComputer?
    private string rootDir = @"C:\Backup";        
    private void FormView_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)        {                       
       List<string> ls = Directory.GetDirectories(rootDir).Select(Path.GetFileName).ToList();            
        ls.Sort((a, b) => -1 * a.CompareTo(b));        
        listBoxComputer.Sorted = false;            
        listBoxComputer.DataSource = ls;            
        listBoxUser.SelectedIndex =-1;

  • Hello,

    You can look at the following code sample or better yet use a ListView.

  • Hi EKH10,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, FormView is a web control. You use ASP.NET, you could get help from the ASP.NET forum.
