How to selectively populate listbox items using a list?

i couldnt do what i want with this style. So i decided to change my method.

I want to populate my multiple-selection items, i googled it a lot but i cant get result which is useful for me.

So now, i have a textbox and a button. Textbox is txtSearch, button is btnSearch. When i type something in textbox and press btnSearch, multiple selection listbox should populate, in infopath. Maybe we can do this via coding, but in my company i dont have chance to code coz company's pc dont have visual studio :)) and dont let me to install it :)

You can't install VS, but can you subscribe to cloudshare? And my feeling is that if can't install VS don't use SharePoint. SharePoint is platform, not a standalone product (actually it can be very you will reach limits of the product very quickly). In fact, what is the reason you can't install Visual Studio ? Cost ? Software policy? Hardware ? – Steve B Jun 26 '12 at 7:14
