Property Value

-1.

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

An attempt was made to assign a value to the SelectedIndex.

In the base class, ListControl, the SelectedIndex property returns a zero-based index of the currently selected item. The default is -1, which indicates that nothing is selected. The SelectedIndex property is not applicable to the BulletedList control.

Note   When you use the get accessor for the SelectedIndex property, it always returns -1. An attempt to use the set accessor for the SelectedIndex property raises a NotSupportedException.

Use the event data of the BulletedListEventArgs class to determine the index of the link button in a BulletedList control that was clicked.

This property is not bindable in visual designers, but is bindable at runtime. For more information, see BindableAttribute.
