Hi Jeet,

This is the simplest way to load a listbox to another list box and at the same time remove the data from the sorce listbox

int mCount = ListBox1.Items.Count;

for (int i = 0; i <= mCount - 1; i++)


    if (ListBox1.Items[i] == ListBox1.SelectedItem)




        mCount=mCount - 1;

        i=i - 1;
