Hi there!!

This is what I can come up with so far. You can use a string variable instead of a textbox.

I cannot find anything where you only change the color of the selected text but I will see if I can find anything else.

private void listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    textBox1.Text = listBox1.Text;
    int count = 0;
    count = listBox1.SelectedIndex;
    if(count == listBox1.SelectedIndex)
    //if(listBox1.Text == textBox1.Text)
        listBox1.BackColor = Color.Beige;
        listBox1.ForeColor = Color.Blue;
        textBox1.ForeColor = listBox1.ForeColor;

Good Luck
