Hi there,

This is something to get you started on if you wanted to trim out multiple words.

Hopefully this will give you something to start with.


''' <summary>
 ''' Gets the list items.
 ''' </summary>
 ''' <param name="p_textToSearch">The text to search.</param>
 Public Sub GetListItems(ByVal p_textToSearch As String)
     'listBox1 is the listbox you want to populate
     Dim items As New ListBox.ObjectCollection(listBox1)
     If (p_textToSearch.Contains("<")) AndAlso (p_textToSearch.Contains(">")) Then
         Dim wordsStrings As String() = p_textToSearch.Split(">"c)
         For Each wordsString As String In wordsStrings
             Dim firstIndexOfBracket As Integer = wordsString.IndexOf("<", StringComparison.Ordinal)
             If firstIndexOfBracket < 0 Then
                 firstIndexOfBracket = 0
             End If
             Dim preTrim As String = wordsString.Substring(firstIndexOfBracket)
             Dim altered As String = preTrim.Replace("<", "")
     End If
 End Sub

   /// <summary>
   /// Gets the list items.
   /// </summary>
   /// <param name="p_textToSearch">The text to search.</param>
   public void GetListItems(string p_textToSearch)
       //listBox1 is the listbox you want to populate
       ListBox.ObjectCollection items = new ListBox.ObjectCollection(listBox1);
       if ((p_textToSearch.Contains("<")) && (p_textToSearch.Contains(">")))
           string[] wordsStrings = p_textToSearch.Split('>');
           foreach (var wordsString in wordsStrings)
               int firstIndexOfBracket = wordsString.IndexOf("<", StringComparison.Ordinal);
               if (firstIndexOfBracket < 0)
                firstIndexOfBracket = 0; 
               string preTrim = wordsString.Substring(firstIndexOfBracket);
               string altered = preTrim.Replace("<", "");
