List boxes

Question:
How can I put the output of a do-while loop in a list box then delete it for the next run?ex.o=0do (o=o+1)Randomize timerx=rnd( * 6)+1z=x*4Print z to loop

Answer:
The ListBox control has two methods available that are relevant to your question:

  • AddItem will add a new row to the ListBox.
  • Clear will empty the rows from the ListBox.
Instead of printing the output, you simply use this statement:
ListBox.AddItem z
To clear the box, call ListBox.Clear. That’s all there is to it!
