     Show two list boxes, one to display a list of choices, one to display a list of ordered suggestions.'s Query Wizard for Access and SQL Server includes a handy control to move items between two list boxes using JavaScript. This control uses a Server Side VBScript class that is available for free integration into your custom Code Wizard application, or any other ASP based HTML FORM you may have.

Here is some sample code showing how to enable this control in your own HTLM FORM:

<!--#INCLUDE FILE=DoubleBox.asp-->
<INPUT TYPE=Submit VALUE="Continue &gt; &gt; ">
dim objDoubleBox
set objDoubleBox = New DoubleBox
objDoubleBox.doublebox_fields = "ItemOne,ItemTwo,ItemThree"
objDoubleBox.doublebox_delimiters =","
objDoubleBox.doublebox_size = 12
objDoubleBox.doublebox_LHeader ="Choose From List:" 
objDoubleBox.doublebox_RHeader = "Selected"
objDoubleBox.doublebox_form = "forms[0]"

After submission, the selected entries will show up as a delimited list in the Request("doubleboxform") variable. This is determined by the value specified for .doublebox_name. Note this control _must_ be embedded in a Form to actual return values. Form can be a POST or GET.

This control requires VBScript 5 or later on your ASP server. The JavaScript created by the control is compatible with most old and new browsers.

  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.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
