I have a textbox and two buttons (Add and Show).
I want that when I click on add button after entering a value in the textbox then that value should be added in list which would appear on Show button click.

Please guide me how I can handle this.
Thanks in Advance

Edited for Grammar, Spelling and Readability.

add textbox
add eventhandler for Add button, retrieve text from textbox, store in db
add eventhandler for Show button, select list from db, render list

If you wnat the same button to act as both an Add and a show button:
add eventhandler for Add/Show button - retrieve text from button if text is "Add" execute add functionality, if text is "Show" execute show functionality. For the rest do as above.

Thanks Dalek!
Try this code:
private ICollection<string> lst = new List<string>();
        private void btnAdd_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        private void btnShow_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            listBox1.DataSource = lst;

There is little change here the second button is Show/Hide. It should not only show the list but when i click it again the list should disappear. Can i achieve this functionality through ajax?
