I have a listbox (using VB.NET) with the following values:


I want to "loop" through the list and ONLY write the SELECTED ITEMS to the screen. I have the below code writtern, but I only get the first selected item. EX: If I select Add & View, my reslut on the screen is Add Add.

----------START CODE---------------------
 Sub SaveUserPermission(ByVal s As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

        Dim mUserID, mPermissionID As Integer
        Dim txtPermission As String
        Dim LI As ListItem
        Dim objUserPermission As New clsUserPermission()

        mUserID = Session("editID")

        If lstbxPermissions.SelectedIndex = -1 Then
            Response.Write("NOTHING IS SELECTED!")
        End If

        For Each LI In lstbxPermissions.Items

           If LI.Selected = True Then

                txtPermission = lstbxPermissions.SelectedItem.Text

            End If


      End Sub
------------------END CODE-------------------------------

Please any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Instead of using "-1" for selected index, use "<0" (because the index will start from 0 so that you can display the selected item or in the 0th index put some static text so that you can check it with the if condition that the selectedindex>0.

your code should be like this:

'Populating List box

'looping code will go here
'Finally add this


Now check whether the listbox's selectedindex>0

if lstbxPermissions.selectedindex<1 then

            Response.Write("NOTHING IS SELECTED!")
            For Each LI In lstbxPermissions.Items

           If LI.Selected = True Then

                txtPermission = lstbxPermissions.SelectedItem.Text

            End If

end if
