Detect if the user has selected an item

Hi team, I am looking for a solution that will detect if the user has <u>not</u> choosen an item from a list box. The code below is what I have come up with and does not seem to provide me with the answer I am looking for.

public void GetSelections(ListBox _LBox) //Comments are same as above
            {
                  StringBuilder sb1 = new StringBuilder("");
                  StringBuilder sb2 = new StringBuilder("");
                  for(int i=0; i < _LBox.Items.Count; i++)
                  {
                        if(_LBox.Items[i].Selected)
                        {
                              sb1.Append(_LBox.Items[i].Text); //Return more than one Location, if selected
                              sb1.Append(","); //split muliple selections with ','.
                              sb2.Append(_LBox.Items[i].Value); //Return more than one Location id.
                              sb2.Append(","); //split multiple selections with ','.
                              if(_LBox.Items[i].Selected)
                              {
                                    _sbLocationIDs = null;
                                    _sbLocationsText = null;
                                    lblLocations.Text = "None Selected";
                              }
                              else
                              {
                                    _sbLocationIDs = sb2;
                                    _sbLocationsText = sb1;
                                    lblLocations.Text = "Selected Locations: " + sb1.ToString(); //Set the label equal to selections.
                              }
                        }
                        
                  }
Cheers
