im writing a little program that is autoexecuted when a cd is put in the drive and its supposed to automatically launch the movie thats on the cd. and i have it all done and working nice. but i want to make the program more generic, so i dont have to have a different version for .avi, .mpg, .mpeg, etc.

so my question is, is there any way to have multiple patterns for a filelistbox? i tried separating the patterns with commas and semicolons to no avail...

I started a new project and placed a file list box on my form. It immediately displayed all the files in the VB executeable directory. I then replaced the Pattern property "*.*" to "*.dll;*.exe"

It displayed only dll's and exe's...

So a semicolon is what you need. Dunno why it didn't work for ya before.
