I think You'll have to go Through a Loop

For each Item in the List box call a Function that compares it with items in Array

assuming this is in the listbox
<asp:ListBox id="ListBox1" runat="server">
      <asp:ListItem>Item 1</asp:ListItem>
      <asp:ListItem>Item 2</asp:ListItem>
      <asp:ListItem>Item 3</asp:ListItem>
      <asp:ListItem>Item 4</asp:ListItem>
</asp:ListBox>

your c# code will probably be (i am putting it in page load)

string []st=new string[]{"Item 1","Item 10","Item 9"};

foreach(string s in st)
{
      if(ListBox1.Items.FindByText(s)==null)
            Response.Write("Item : " +  s + " Not Found <br>");
}

Got it?

Enjoy!

Well a better method will be Loop for all Items in the ListBox and user Array.BinarySearch in the Array.

It'll be Faster.
