As i seen that you are binding datatable or DataView to listbox1.

So please set DataTextField and DataValueField . This is the name of DataTable Column.

listbox1.datasourceID = "objectdatasource1"
listbox1.DataTextField = ""   // Please provide this information
listbox1.DataValueField =""   // Please provide this information.
listbox1.databind()

Open in new window

The question title and the id of the datasource explicitely says its an OBJECTDATASOURCE not a datatable or dataview. But yes set the DataTextField and DataValueField properties appropriately.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Why not bind the dataset directly to list then?

If you manually create listitem then its ok.

Like
listboxl.Items.Add(new ListItem("text1","value"));

But here you bind datatable or dataset that's why you have to provide that information.

I repeat my question:
If DAL is returing you a dataset, you could bind to this dataset directly without using an objectdatasource in between. Is there any reason for not taking this approach?

LB1.DataSource = FCT1()
LB1.DataTextField = "WarID"
LB1.DataValueField = "WarID"
LB1.DataBind()
