.Selected property for listbox does not work

P: n/a
I have written a code for showing the list boxes as selected using a
Listitem and the selected property of the items.
Now I have 2 list boxes in my page. But it shows only the selected values
of the last list box in both the list boxes.
If i reverse the calls to the filllistbox methods it shows the value
selected for the 1st list box in both the listboxes.
If I run application in debug it shows proper values being selected. But
finally it shows the data for the last listbox only.
I have the code for my method below. Is there a way I can solve this

The method calls are as follows :-

this.FillListBox(myModel.CustomerLBUserList, myModel.SelectedPRList,

this.FillListBox(myModel.CustomerLBUserList, myModel.SelectedRevList,
Thanks in advance
