Position Selected Item in Listbox to Top

I have a VB.Net web page with a listbox:

<asp:ListBox id="lbxDelList" runat="server" forecolor="#000099" rows="10" Width="500px" SelectionMode="Multiple" TabIndex="1" AutoPostBack="True"></asp:ListBox>

When item 12 is selected from this Listbox (please note that I have rows set to Rows=10), I need item 12 to re-position to the top of the listbox.  What's happens in my case is that the item gets selected/hightlighted, but since it doesn't reposition, the user can't see it.

Since the listbox is SelectionMode=Multiple and I am displaying only "Rows=10" ....if the user selects item 5 and item 25,  I need the listbox to re-position showing item 5 at the top.

Thanks! msyed1

Can't do it without lot of client side javascript code.
If this kind of functionality is absolutely essential then you may want to look into thirdparty solutions for this kind of UI.
