private void OnSelected(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    ListBoxItem lbi = e.Source as ListBoxItem;

    if (lbi != null)
        label1.Content = lbi.Content.ToString() + " is selected.";
Private Sub OnSelected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    Dim lbi As ListBoxItem = TryCast(e.Source, ListBoxItem)

    If lbi IsNot Nothing Then
        label1.Content = lbi.Content.ToString() & " is selected."
    End If
End Sub


To know when the selection in a ListBox changes, listen for the SelectionChanged event.
