ListItem.Value Property

Gets or sets the value associated with the ListItem.

[Visual Basic]
Public Property Value As String
[C#]
public string Value {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property String* get_Value();
public: __property void set_Value(String*);
[JScript]
public function get Value() : String;
public function set Value(String);

Property Value

The value associated with the ListItem. The default is String.Empty.

Remarks

Use the Value property to specify or determine the value associated with the ListItem.

Note   If the Value property contains a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the get accessor returns the value of the Text property. If the Text property, in turn, contains a null reference (Nothing), String.Empty is returned.

Example

[Visual Basic]

<!-- The following example demonstrates adding items to and removing items
from ListBox controls. When an item is selected in ListBox1, a new ListBoxItem with
the same value can be created and added to ListBox2, if ListBox2 does not already 
contain an item with that value. When the new ListBoxItem is created, it receives 
the Value property of the selected item as its Text property, and the Text property
of the selected item as its value property. -->
