Hi, not sure if this is what you mean, but here goes from Edit To List one word per line in the listbox

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>

Global $sText = "Some test text" & @CRLF & "Some More test Text" & @CRLF & "And here's some more test text"
Global $hGui, $iEdit, $iListBox, $iButton, $iMsg

$hGui = GUICreate("", 500, 400)
$iEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sText, 5, 5, 490, 365)
$iListBox = GUICtrlCreateList("", 145, 5, 200, 365, BitOR($WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
$iButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show List", 210, 375, 80, 20)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGui)

While 1
    $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $iMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $iButton
            If GUICtrlRead($iButton) = "Show List" Then
                GUICtrlSetData($iButton, "Show Edit")
                GUICtrlSetState($iEdit, $GUI_HIDE)
                GUICtrlSetState($iListBox, $GUI_SHOW)
                GUICtrlSetData($iListBox, "")
                GUICtrlSetData($iListBox, StringReplace(StringReplace(StringStripCR(_GUICtrlEdit_GetText($iEdit)), @LF, "|"), " ", "|"))
            Else
                GUICtrlSetData($iButton, "Show List")
                GUICtrlSetState($iEdit, $GUI_SHOW)
                GUICtrlSetState($iListBox, $GUI_HIDE)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

$tmp = StringSplit(ControlGetText($gui,$editcontrol),@CRLF)
If Not @error Then
    _GUICtrlListBox_BeginUpdate($hListBox)
For $i = 1 to $tmp[0]
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($hListBox,$tmp[$i]
Next
GUICtrlListBox_EndUpdate($hListBox)

assuming you mean you want to populate a list with the line by line contents of an edit box

***edit***

P.S. didn't list the required #includes because i'm lazy, sorry

What about List To Edit???

Problem is the list is one word per line.

How would I know what words words make a sentence.

I mean if I filled a list box with single words the the only thing that tells me the end of a sentence is a fullstop.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#Include <GuiListBox.au3>

Global $sText = "Some|test|text.|Some|More|test|Text.|But|wait|here's|some|more|test|text."
Global $hGui, $iEdit, $iListBox, $iButton, $iMsg, $sTmp, $sTxt

$hGui = GUICreate("", 500, 400)
$iEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 5, 5, 490, 365)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
$iListBox = GUICtrlCreateList("", 145, 5, 200, 365, BitOR($WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sText)
$iButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show Edit", 210, 375, 80, 20)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGui)

While 1
    $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $iMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $iButton
            If GUICtrlRead($iButton) = "Show Edit" Then
                GUICtrlSetData($iButton, "Show List")
                GUICtrlSetState($iEdit, $GUI_SHOW)
                GUICtrlSetState($iListBox, $GUI_HIDE)
                GUICtrlSetData($iEdit, "")
                For $i = 0 To _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($iListBox) -1
                    $sTmp = _GUICtrlListBox_GetText($iListBox, $i)
                    If StringRight($sTmp, 1) = "." Then
                        $sTxt &= $sTmp & @CRLF
                    Else
                        $sTxt &= $sTmp & " "
                    EndIf
                Next
                GUICtrlSetData($iEdit, $sTxt)
            Else
                GUICtrlSetData($iButton, "Show Edit")
                GUICtrlSetState($iEdit, $GUI_HIDE)
                GUICtrlSetState($iListBox, $GUI_SHOW)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

If you explained better what your trying to accomplish then, maybe there's a better solution.

I use loop like your solution. But if the list has many items, it will take much time. This is my problem.
