    dynamic listboxes


    How can I change the data in a listbox on a form, which is based on radio
    buttons ? For example, I have 2 radio buttons, one is HARDWARE and one is
    SOFTWARE. When you click on the HARDWARE button I want to load the listbox
    w/ data from the hardware table, and conversly, if you click the SOFTWARE
    button I want to load the listbox w/ data from the software table.

    Any ideas ??

    Is the data going to exist on the server? Do you need to run a query on
    the server to get the data, or will all of it be sent down inside a
    hidden textarea or something?

    I can think of several ways. If you're a DevX Premier member, my VBPJ
    article "Solving the Dependent Listbox Problem" on DevX
    (http://www.devx.com/premier/mgznarch...200/id0200.asp)
    should help. If not, you can read at
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/pe...dependent.htm.
    Basically, the article discusses using XML to alter the content in one list
    based on a user selection in another list, which is very close to your
    problem.
