Replacing listboxes in .exe with XML in DLL

I am a proficient 'c' programer but a novice as far as VB is concerned.
I have written a VB .exe that takes data from a third-party DB application and populates a couple of listboxes.
The application does exactly what I want but I now need to re-build to as a DLL so that I can use it from some code written in 'c' (LabWindows/CVI).

I've come across several examples of reading data into listboxes but they arn't quite the same. I want to get rid of the listboxes altogether!
Is there a simple way of 'emulating' a listbox using XML for the data storage, i.e. reading and writing? and does anyone have a piece of sample code?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
