I have  a listbox whose list is  being populated through a datasource ...That list contains names of some products.when the list is being populated control goes to the first name on the list ....and without even selecting the first name its popping up the details of that name. What should I do so that the control does not directly go to the first name on the list  and select its details?
Only when the user selects the item it should pop up otherwise the information should not be displayed.

Thanks!

Here goes my sample code





//Populating List Box with productNames

        private List<UserData.ProductsRegistered> proreg;
 

        private void ProductsRegistered(string UserName, string productID,string Name)

        {

            proreg =userdata.GetRegisteredProducts(UserName, productID,Name);
 

            listBox1.DataSource = proreg;

            listBox1.DisplayMember = Name;

            listBox1.SelectedIndexChanged += new EventHandler(listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged);

                                         

        }
 

        //selecting individual items in a list box
 
 

        private void listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

        {

            // Get the currently selected item in the ListBox.
 

            string Name = "";

            // Name= listBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();

            // string Name = listBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();

            string UserId = "";

            string SerialNumber = "";

            string UserName = "";

            string ProductId = "";
 
 

            //populate the product Name and load the listbox with all values

            if (null != listBox1.SelectedItem)

            {
 

                Name = listBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();
 

                UserData.Name info = userdata.GetInfoName(UserName, Name);

                ProductId = info.ProductId;
 

                UserData.UID ui = userdata.GetUserID(ProductId);

                UserId = ui.UserId;
 

                UserData.LicenseInfo LInfo = userdata.GetNameInfo(UserId, ProductId, Name);

                SerialNumber = LInfo.SerialNumber;
 

                int _count = listBox1.Items.Count;

                if (_count != 0)

                {

                    for (int i = 0; i < _count; i++)

                    {

                        if ((listBox1.GetSelected(i)))

                        {

                            MessageBox.Show("Serial No:= " + SerialNumber.ToString() + "UserID:= " + UserId.ToString(), "LicenseInfo");
 

                        }

                    }

                }

            }

            //If listbox values to be cleared.

            else

            {

                listBox1.Items.Clear();

            }

        }

if you want it to blank on the form load event then you would want to  place it at the end of the initialization of all of your controls and the binding of your datasource to the list

i don't know where your productsregistered function is called from but you should be able to put it


private void ProductsRegistered(string UserName, string productID,string Name)

        {

            proreg =userdata.GetRegisteredProducts(UserName, productID,Name);

 

            listBox1.DataSource = proreg;

            listBox1.DisplayMember = Name;

            listBox1.SelectedIndexChanged += new EventHandler(listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged);
 

//HERE

listBox1.SelectedIndex = -1;

                                         

        }

When I put the listBox1.SelectedIndex = -1; at the place where u pointed out it throws me an exception when I want to clear the values in the list box.........

Products Registered function is initialised with the list to poulate values and called down as another function.......
private List<UserData.ProductsRegistered> proreg;
 
        private void ProductsRegistered(string UserName, string productID,string Name)
        {
            proreg =userdata.GetRegisteredProducts(UserName, productID,Name);
 
            listBox1.DataSource = proreg;
            listBox1.DisplayMember = Name;
            listBox1.SelectedIndexChanged += new EventHandler(listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged);
                                         
        }

Help to find a work around !

i don't completely understand the clear list items if your selected item is null but this will account for the -1 index
 else

{

   if(listBox1.SelectedIndex > -1)

    listBox1.Items.Clear();

}

there should be a row focused event for the datagridview that you can tie in to and reset the selected index = -1 each time a new row focused. i don't have vs in front of me right now so i cant tell you the exact event off the top of my head.
