List box selected Index event

My question is :

I have a console screen....which accepts user info ,when I enter userfirstname/lastname and click on a search button names related to that type will appear in the datagrid view ..for suppose I have a firstname called dave then  users with first name dave will come in the datagrid view .....it might be any number of rows....If I select the first row all that users information is displayed ....I mean his billing address,personal details and the products he registere....so now the products he registered would come up through datasource and are populated in the list box.....

Now the problem:

First time when I select a user /row it populates his products in list  box and the control is not highlighted as the code runs through listbox1.selectedindex=-1
second time when I click the row in datagridview control automatically hits the first name in the lsit box and reads the information without even selecting the name............the information inside that is popped up through a msg box.........now when I click on ok in the msg box...........then its going through listbox.selectedindex=-1 and does not highlight any thing...........

I want a work around to solve this .

Wow, OK let me see if I have this straight.  You have:

1. Textboxes in which a user enters a first and/or last name and clicks a search button.  All items matching that search are populated in a DataGridView.

2. When a row is selected in the DataGridView, you populate a ListBox control with a list of products.

I believe you are trying to do something when an item in the ListBox is selected, but it is not clear from your post.  Can you elaborate on:

1. What do you want to happen when an item in the ListBox is selected?
2. What events are you wiring to in the DataGridView and ListBox?

The points 1 and 2 are correcta nd coming to list box selection:

When an item in the list box is selected it pops up a message box with details of the item like its license information.

EVENTS IN list Box:
List box selected Index event:
Datagridview_click.


Now my problem is first time when I select a row its showing all the products and the first product is not highlighted until and unless I select,but next time when I clcik a row control automatically goes to the top most item in the list and its license info is being displayed without even being slected............I feel first time the items are not being cleared but not sure what would be the problem....
Here goes my sample code for listbox and datagridview:

Any help would be appreciated!


//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(this.listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged);
           listBox1.SelectedIndex = -1;
           listBox1.Refresh();
            
                                      
        }
 
        //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 = "";
            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
            {
                
                if (listBox1.SelectedIndex > -1)

OK, so after the row is selected in the DataGridView you want the first item in the ListBox to be selected automatically?  A couple of notes:

1. You should probably wire to the DataGridView's SelectionChanged event rather than Click - Click is going to fire all over the place.

2. If you want the first item in the ListBox to be selected automatically when the row in the DataGridView is selected, you need to do so programmatically:
            if (ProductID != "")
            {
                ProductsRegistered(textBox4.Text, ProductID,Name);
                listBox1.DataSource = proreg;
                listBox1.DisplayMember = Name;        
                
                if (listBox1.Items.Count > 0)
                    listBox1.SelectedIndex = 0;
            }

As a sidebar, you should really avoid using operators on strings; if you want to compare a value to a string, you should use Equals.  You can also case integers to their numeric representations if you want to use numeric operators.
if (ProductID.Equals(string.Empty))
{
    ...
}
 
int CreditCardID = (int)dataGridView1.CurrentRow.Cells[7].Value;

Hey Nash,

Thanks for the advice I will definately follow....

I mean after the row is selected I want the values to be populated in list box ....that is done through datasource.........but I don't want the control to automatically go to the first item.......list box should be populated without highlighting any items.................only if the user clicks then only it should display thedetails in that particular item.......


So datagridview click event should be changed to datagrid view selection changed event???????will that solve?

Just unwire the ListBox SelectedIndexChanged event before you assign the datasource and rewire it when you are done.
listBox1.SelectedIndexChanged -= new EventHandler(listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged);
 
if (ProductID != "")
{
	ProductsRegistered(textBox4.Text, ProductID,Name);
	listBox1.DataSource = proreg;
	listBox1.DisplayMember = Name;        
}
 
listBox1.SelectedIndexChanged += new EventHandler(listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged);

No problem.  Essentially when you databind an object as the datasource of a ListBox, DataGridView, etc., you can run into situations where you cause events to fire inadvertently, as was the case here.  By unwiring the SelectedIndexChanged event before you databind the ListBox you prevent the event from firing unexpectedly.  You then rewire event so that when a user makes a selection, it behaves accordingly.
