An Integer that represents the index of the ListBoxItem.


The Integer associated with the specified ListBoxItem.


In Visual Basic 6.0, the ItemData property for a ListBox or ComboBox control could be set at design time in the Properties window to associate an Integer with a ListBox or ComboBox item. In Visual Basic, the ItemData property no longer exists; the GetItemData and SetItemData methods can be used to emulate the behavior of ItemData.


Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic 2008. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
