ListCount Property

Contains the number of items in the list portion of a ComboBox or ListBox control. Not available at design time; read-only at run time.



The following example creates a list box. The source of the items that appear in the list box items is an array; the array is specified with the RowSourceType and RowSource properties.

ListCount is used to cycle through all of the items specified by the List property of the ComboBox or ListBox.

The MultiSelect property for the list box is set to true (.T.), allowing you to make multiple selections from the list box. The ListCount property is used within a FOR ... ENDFOR loop to display the item or items you choose in the list box. The Selected and List properties are used to determine the items you chose.


DIMENSION gaMyListArray(10)
FOR gnCount = 1 to 10  && Fill the array with letters
   STORE REPLICATE(CHR(gnCount+64),6) TO gaMyListArray(gnCount)

frmMyForm = CREATEOBJECT('Form')  && Create a Form
frmMyForm.Closable = .f.  && Disable the Control menu box 

frmMyForm.Move(150,10)  && Move the form

frmMyForm.AddObject('cmbCommand1','cmdMyCmdBtn')  && Add "Quit" Command button
frmMyForm.AddObject('lstListBox1','lstMyListBox')  && Add list box control

frmMyForm.lstListBox1.RowSourceType = 5  && Specifies an array
frmMyForm.lstListBox1.RowSource = 'gaMyListArray' && Array containing listbox items

frmMyForm.cmbCommand1.Visible =.T.  && "Quit" Command button visible
frmMyForm.lstListBox1.Visible =.T.  && "List Box visible

frmMyForm.SHOW  && Display the form
READ EVENTS  && Start event processing

DEFINE CLASS cmdMyCmdBtn AS CommandButton  && Create Command button
   Caption = '\<Quit'  && Caption on the Command button
   Cancel = .T.  && Default Cancel Command button (Esc)
   Left = 125  && Command button column
   Top = 210  && Command button row
   Height = 25  && Command button height

      CLEAR EVENTS  && Stop event processing, close Form
      CLEAR  && Clear main Visual FoxPro window

DEFINE CLASS lstMyListBox AS ListBox  && Create ListBox control
   Left = 10  && List Box column
   Top = 10  && List Box row
   MultiSelect = .T.  && Allow selecting more than 1 item

   ? "Selected items:"
   ? "---------------"
   FOR nCnt = 1 TO ThisForm.lstListBox1.ListCount
      IF ThisForm.lstListBox1.Selected(nCnt)  && Is item selected?
         ? SPACE(5) + ThisForm.lstListBox1.List(nCnt) && Show item
