ListControl::SelectedValueChanged Event

Occurs when the SelectedValue property changes.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public:
 event EventHandler^ SelectedValueChanged {
	void add (EventHandler^ value);
	void remove (EventHandler^ value);
}

For more information about handling events, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code example is a complete application that shows how you can use DataSource, DisplayMember, ValueMember, and SelectedValue members of the ListControl class as implemented by the ListBox class. The example loads an ArrayList and the list box. The example also uses the SelectedValueChanged event to fill in a text box when the user selects an item in the list box. The text box is filled with the data associated with the selected item.
