Hi Geoffrey, and welcome :cool:

Looks like a listbox to me (set Style to "Checkbox") :)

That's not what I meant ;)

I am talking about the whole box :

allowing the user to add things to the list and being able to sort it by clicking on Artist for example.
I can't explain myself that good because my english isn't very good and I'm only a beginner in Visual Basic, sorry .. :)

please help
thanks anyway ;)

Then draw a Listview on

Then in your form load you put something like

You might want to take a look at the
MP3 Player Tutorial
It uses a ListView in exactly this manner :)

Thanks all!
exactly what I needed :)
the mp3-player tutorial is very helpful, I'll do that one first.

edit : I have a new question now, it's not so important but how can I make it so that when I click the column headers, the songs sort alphabeticly?
