void ListBox1_SelectedValueChanged( Object^ /*sender*/, EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
{
   textBox1->Text="";
   if ( ListBox1->SelectedIndex != -1 )
         textBox1->Text = ListBox1->SelectedValue->ToString();
}
private void ListBox1_SelectedValueChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (ListBox1.SelectedIndex != -1)
    {
        textBox1.Text = ListBox1.SelectedValue.ToString();
        // If we also wanted to get the displayed text we could use
        // the SelectedItem item property:
        // string s = ((USState)ListBox1.SelectedItem).LongName;
    }
}
    Private Sub ListBox1_SelectedValueChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        If ListBox1.SelectedIndex <> -1 Then
            textBox1.Text = ListBox1.SelectedValue.ToString()
            ' If we also wanted to get the displayed text we could use
            ' the SelectedItem item property:
            ' Dim s = CType(ListBox1.SelectedItem, USState).LongName
        End If
    End Sub
