Examples

The following example shows how to use the SelectedItems property to determine whether a list box has any selected items.

private void SelectedItems(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    if (lb.SelectedItem != null)
    {
        label1.Content = "Has " + (lb.SelectedItems.Count.ToString()) + " item(s) selected.";
    }
}
Private Sub SelectedItems(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    If lb.SelectedItem IsNot Nothing Then
        label1.Content = "Has " & (lb.SelectedItems.Count.ToString()) & " item(s) selected."
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

This property is meant to be used when SelectionMode does not equal Single. If the selection mode is Single the correct property to use is SelectedItem.
