Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new website, and add the files in the folder shown above into it.

When you browse the page frmFilmEntry.aspx, you should see that it allows you to type in a film name and rating (do this correctly - the form doesn't contain any validation).

Add a multi-select listbox to your form showing categories of your choice, to look something like this:

ASP.NET 4.0 - Visual Basic exercise - DropDownLists and ListBoxes (image 1)

When you click on the CONTINUE button, you see the data you've chosen in the form

Your code should display an error if a user doesn't choose any categories:

What you should see if you don't select any categories

Test that your form works, then close it down.
