I was asked to make a program where there is 3 listboxes, the 1st one has the list of names, the 2nd one should have the first name with lower case and the 3rd should have the last name in Upper case.

My problem is i double clicked on the 1st listbox( the one with names) and wrote this code

My problem is how to i have a seperate substring with different names, because the one above works only for the first names>??
2nd Question how can u have a listbox with cases whether its upper or lower.

Which of the types named "ListBox" do you mean? Full name, please. And tag your application type or UI library.

do you mean, once the full name is selected in first list box, the other list boxes must filled with first and last names respectively. is that your problem ?

Check the below code

Private Sub ListBox1_DoubleClick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ListBox1.DoubleClick
        If (ListBox1.SelectedIndex <> -1) Then
            Dim info(2) As String
            'Split the Firstname and Lastname using space
            info = ListBox1.SelectedItem.ToString().Split(" ")
            Dim fName As String = info(0) 'FirstName
            Dim lName As String = info(1) 'LastName

            ListBox2.Items.Add(fName.ToLower()) 'Convert to lower
            ListBox3.Items.Add(lName.ToUpper()) 'Convert to Upper

        End If
    End Sub
