Default ListBox Problem

Am dynamically filling a ListBox with values from backend.

Please go thro the following sample code:

ListBox1.Items.Add(New ListItem("text1", "value1"))
ListBox1.Items.Add(New ListItem("text2", "value2"))
ListBox1.Items.Add(New ListItem("text3", "value3"))

I select the third item and click on the button.
The problem is: as soon as i click on the button,
the selection is lost and the first item is

I dont get this problem on using:

But i need to have the value property to identify
each listitem separately.

PLEASE NOTE that i have set AutoPostBack of Listbox
to false and EnableViewState to true.

Can someone please tell me why this happens?

:) Spacy

Can you provide more detail about how/when the add calls are running? Are you adding these to the list box every time or only on the first page hit (not ispostback)?

Thanks a lot for replying planoie! Atlast a reply!

I have changed my logic to get rid of this problem. Am no longer
using: ListBox1.Items.Add(New ListItem("text1", "value1"))

But would still like to know why this is happening.
Well..am loading the listbox only in first page load
i.e. in !Page.IsPostBack

Thanks buddy!
