    Randomizing text from Listbox?


    i have a list box which contains around 20 lines of data, I would like to import each of these into a button in a random order.

    Apprantely, the best method is to get a random item from the listbox, using a Random object to generate a random number and use that as an index to get the corresponding item from the list.

    Anyone have any idea how to do this?

    dim rnd as new random
    dim index as integer = rnd.next(0,listbox1.items.count)
