Try this code snip from my old code

Code: [Select]
     Public Class Form1

    Private listOfLayers As New List(Of String)

    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim docs As DocumentCollection = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.DocumentManager
        Dim doc As Document = docs.MdiActiveDocument
        Dim db As Database = doc.Database
        Dim ed As Editor = doc.Editor
        Using tr As Transaction = doc.TransactionManager.StartTransaction
            Dim lt As LayerTable = DirectCast(tr.GetObject(db.LayerTableId, OpenMode.ForRead, False), LayerTable)
            For Each lid As ObjectId In lt

                Dim ltr As LayerTableRecord = tr.GetObject(lid, OpenMode.ForRead)
                If lid.IsValid Then
                End If
        End Using
        Me.lstLayers.DataSource = listOfLayers
    End Sub

I've used modeless form, so change to your suit, say
avoid to load xreferenced layers etc
