C# .Net – Listbox And Combobox Events



A useful event you may want to use for a ListBox or a ComboBox is the SelectedIndexChanged
event. You can use this event to get which item in your List or Combo box was
selected. The event will fire again when you select a new item. Why is this
useful? Well, as an example, you can populate a second ListBox or ComboBox based
on which item was selected in the first one. Examine the image below:

A C# form with two listboxes

We have two ListBoxes on a form. The first one shows payment methods, and the
second one is blank. When Credit Card is clicked in the first ListBox, notice
what happens to the second ListBox:

Second listbox reveals more choices

The second ListBox is now displaying the types of credit cards accepted. Click
on the Cheque item, and different options are available:

Cheque options are now in listbox two

All this happens with the SelectedIndexChanged event.

To see how the code works, start a new project and put two ListBoxes on your
form. Click on the first one to select it, and use the Item property to add
the three items: Cheque, Credit Card, and PayPal. Now click on the lightning
bolt to display the event for a listbox:

C# properties box showing the SelectedIndexChanged event

Double click the SelectedIndexChanged event to bring up its code stub:

C# code stub for the SelectedIndexChanged event

To get at which item in a ListBox or ComboBox was selected, you use the SelectedIndex
property. The first item in the list is item 0, the second item 1, etc. So add
this if statement to your code:

if (listBox1.SelectedIndex == 1)



So we’re just checking if the selected index has a value of 1. If it does,
we’re calling a method – loadListBox. Add the method to your code:

Load a listbox code in C#

You’ve already covered ListBoxes in an earlier section,
so we won’t explain how it works. But Run your programme and test it out. You
should find that it works as described above.


Exercise N
Add a second method that loads items when the Cheque payment method is selected.
Call the method from the SelectedIndexChanged event when item 0 is selected
in the first ListBox. When you programme runs, the Cheque payment options should
display in your second ListBox, instead of the Credit Card options.
