     This is in response to many requests for "removing duplicates in a listbox" in the discussion forum. Using the API is almost always faster than using VB. I'm unaware of any examples here on PSC of using the API for removing dupes - I may be wrong. Either way this is a very efficient way of accomplishing this task. No need to vote - code couldn't be much simpler than this! Feel free to improve upon the code yourself. As usual all bugs come entirely free of charge.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
