     Nothing on Newindex in the search. Maybe this will help anybody to have data in two(2) list boxes and want to use.

				Example: The programmer want the user to see a list of file names in the one list, but when an entry is selected, the path to the file, in a hidden list, must open the file in another instance.
It's a good practice to save the path names with the file names into a file at the creation, but afterwards each input have to be split into two list boxes: Line input #1, a$ (the split function can be used here, or, FileN$=Left$(x,x) and PathN$=right$(x,x))
FileN$ go into list1 and PathN$ go to list2.
This is the easiest method so far:
Where L1=List1-sorted and L2=List2-not sorted
dim ak as integer
ak = 0
L1.AddItem "Koos":L1.ItemData(L1.NewIndex) = ak:L2.AddItem "Koospath": ak = ak + 1
L1.AddItem "Andre":L1.ItemData(L1.NewIndex) = ak:L2.AddItem "Andrepath": ak = ak + 1
L1.AddItem "Bets":L1.ItemData(L1.NewIndex) = ak:L2.AddItem "betspath": ak = ak + 1
L2.ListIndex = L1.ItemData(L1.ListIndex)
Label1.Caption = L2.Text
Hope it helps if you search for: Newindex

NewIndex Property
Returns the index of the item most recently added to a ComboBox or ListBox control.
Read only at run time. (quote from MSDN)
This is really useful especially if the control's Sorted Property is set to True.
Also, note 32,767 item limit to read this property e.g. if reference item 32,768 Overflow error is raised.
