The following code example demonstrates creating ListItemCollection objects, adding items to the collections, and removing items from the collections. To view this code in a fully working example, see the WebControl class topic.

// Create a new ListItemCollection.
ListItemCollection listBoxData = new ListItemCollection();
// Add items to the collection.
listBoxData.Add(new ListItem("apples"));
listBoxData.Add(new ListItem("bananas"));
listBoxData.Add(new ListItem("cherries"));
// Set the ListItemCollection as the data source for ListBox1.
ListBox1.DataSource = listBoxData;
