Getting multiple values from a List box in C#

69
Hello all...

I have a list box that is pulling it's data from a sql table. I have its selection mode set to multiextended.

I have the display member for each item set to the Name field from the sql table and the value member for each item set to the ID field from the sql table.

When I select multiple items from the list, how do I get the multiple values? I am able to get the text of one item by using the listboxname.Text but I don't know how to get each value that has been selected all at once.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

you can use the SelectedItems property of the listbox.........
It gets a collection of currently selected items in the listbox......

you can have the items like..............

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  
  2. Dim lstItem1 As String=ListBox1.SelectedItems.Item(0)
  3.  
is this the answer you are looking for?? let me know...

Hi none posted cure.. for narpet's problem

There is a (perfect cure..) sample code behind

function that is a click event handler of a button(Button1)
that will retrieve multi selected value from listbox(ListBox1)
control to a label(Label1) control

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
foreach(int i in ListBox1.GetSelectedIndices())
{
Label1.Text =Label1.Text+" "+ListBox1.Items[i].Value;
}
}
