A common scenario in user interface design is to present lists of data to users and to allow them to select items from that list. Visual Studio provides several list-based controls that allow a variety of presentation options. In this lesson, you will learn about the basic list-based controls, such as the ListBox, ComboBox, and CheckedList-Box, as well as more specialized list-based controls such as ListView, TreeView, NumericUpDown, and DomainUpDown. You will learn how to display lists and select items from lists.
