Hi All,

I'm creating a program with two listboxes, each listbox holding a list of string values. I want to be able to click on a value in listbox1 and a value in listbox2 and for the program to store these two items together so in future it will know these items are associated. If I keep the same item selected in listbox1 but change the item selected in listbox2, I would like the program to delete the previous link and create this new one. The program would eventually have a list of all the items in listbox1 each associated with 1 item in listbox2.

I was thinking of using a 2D array but this seems very inflexible and was wondering which data structure would be best? Another idea I was considering was a list of arrays, e.g. ({listbox1item1,listbox2item4} , {listbox1item2,listbox2item7})
but I'm not sure how practical this is either. Has anyone any advise or is there an easier way to do this?

Sorry if I haven't explained this very well.

Regards,
Stephen.
