I am using the code below inside a program I am building.

How can I reset the numberlist.count to 0 when I need to call the routine again?
The program keeps telling me that the numberlist.count is a read only variable. Other than not being able to reset it, the code works 100%.

Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed!
Public Sub Gamepeicepick()
        Dim gametile As Integer = 0
            gametile = tilerand.Next(1, 62) ' NUmber of images to pick from
            If Numberlist.Contains(gametile) = True Then Continue Do
        Loop Until Numberlist.Count = 31
        Dim sb As New System.Text.StringBuilder
        For index As Integer = 0 To Numberlist.Count - 1
            sb.Append(Numberlist.Item(index).ToString & ",")
        Tile01 = (Numberlist.Item(0))
        Tile02 = (Numberlist.Item(1))
        Tile03 = (Numberlist.Item(2))
        Tile04 = (Numberlist.Item(3))
        Tile05 = (Numberlist.Item(4))
        Tile06 = (Numberlist.Item(5))
        Tile07 = (Numberlist.Item(6))
        Tile08 = (Numberlist.Item(7))
        Tile09 = (Numberlist.Item(8))
        Tile10 = (Numberlist.Item(9))
        Tile11 = (Numberlist.Item(10))
        Tile12 = (Numberlist.Item(11))
        Tile13 = (Numberlist.Item(12))
        Tile14 = (Numberlist.Item(13))
        Tile15 = (Numberlist.Item(14))
        Tile16 = (Numberlist.Item(15))
        Tile17 = (Numberlist.Item(16))
        Tile18 = (Numberlist.Item(17))
        Tile19 = (Numberlist.Item(18))
        Tile20 = (Numberlist.Item(19))
        Tile21 = (Numberlist.Item(20))
        Tile22 = (Numberlist.Item(21))
        Tile23 = (Numberlist.Item(22))
        Tile24 = (Numberlist.Item(23))
        Tile25 = (Numberlist.Item(24))
        Tile26 = (Numberlist.Item(25))
        Tile27 = (Numberlist.Item(26))
        Tile28 = (Numberlist.Item(27))
        Tile29 = (Numberlist.Item(28))
        Tile30 = (Numberlist.Item(29))
        Tile31 = (Numberlist.Item(30))

    End Sub

You can't reset the count, it is exactly what the name implies. Count gets the number of objects in the List. If you want to reset the count you have to reset the list. To do that just call Clear on the list.[^]

Thanks for the quick help....

I was not fully aware of the Count function when I used it.
Now that I understand, I was able to store the list in a second
file, clear the first and re-generate the new number.

Thanks again...
