SelectionChangedEventArgs Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the SelectionChangedEventArgs class.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public SelectionChangedEventArgs(
	RoutedEvent id,
	IList removedItems,
	IList addedItems
)

Parameters

id
Type: System.Windows.RoutedEvent

The event identifier (ID).

removedItems
Type: System.Collections.IList

The items that were unselected during this event.

addedItems
Type: System.Collections.IList

The items that were selected during this event.

The following example creates a ListBox and subscribes to the SelectionChanged event. It uses the SelectionChangedEventArgs to find the selected item in the ListBox.

      <WrapPanel Width="500" Orientation="Horizontal" Name="rectanglesPanel">
        <WrapPanel.Resources>
          <Style TargetType="Rectangle">
            <Setter Property="Height" Value="20"/>
            <Setter Property="Width" Value="20"/>
            <Setter Property="Margin" Value="5"/>
          </Style>
        </WrapPanel.Resources>
      </WrapPanel>

      <ListBox Name="myListBox" HorizontalAlignment="Left" SelectionMode="Extended" 
            Width="265" Height="55" Background="HoneyDew" SelectionChanged="myListBox_SelectionChanged"
            ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource Colors}}" IsSynchronizedWithCurrentItem="true">
      </ListBox>
void myListBox_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs args)
{

    BrushConverter converter = new BrushConverter();

    // Show Rectangles that are the selected colors. 
    foreach (string color in args.AddedItems)
    {
        if (GetRectangle(color) == null)
        {
            Rectangle aRect = new Rectangle();
            aRect.Fill = (Brush) converter.ConvertFrom(color);
            aRect.Tag = color;
            rectanglesPanel.Children.Add(aRect);
        }

    }

    // Remove the Rectangles that are the unselected colors. 
    foreach (string color in args.RemovedItems)
    {
        FrameworkElement removedItem = GetRectangle(color);
        if (removedItem != null)
        {
            rectanglesPanel.Children.Remove(removedItem);
        }
    }
}

FrameworkElement GetRectangle(string color)
{
    foreach (FrameworkElement rect in rectanglesPanel.Children)
    {
        if (rect.Tag.ToString() == color)
            return rect;
    }

    return null;
}
