How  can I get the selected value from listbox.
I tried listBox1.SelectedItem, listBox1.SelectedValue, but it is not the right way.
Thanks.


 <ListBox Height="100" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="21,266,0,0"      Name="listBox1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="556">
            <ListBoxItem Content="One" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Two" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Three" IsEnabled="False" />
        </ListBox>

 private void listBox1_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
        {
            var x = listBox1.SelectedItem;
            var y = listBox1.SelectedValue;
        }

I'm not sure, but maybe this could work:

var x = DirectCast(listBox1.SelectedItem, ListBoxItem).Content.ToString();

see a sample to for the WPF list box.
as far as possible everything should be done using bindings in WPF/Silverlight.
<ListBox ItemsSource="{Binding ListBoxItems}" SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedItem}" SelectionChanged="ListBox_SelectionChanged">

            <ListBox.ItemTemplate>

                <DataTemplate>

                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Content}"/>

                </DataTemplate>

            </ListBox.ItemTemplate>

        </ListBox>



// code behind



public partial class Window2 : Window

    {

        DataContext context;

        public Window2()

        {

            InitializeComponent();

            context = new DataContext();

            this.DataContext = context;

        }



        private void ListBox_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)

        {

            MessageBox.Show("Selected item is : " + context.SelectedItem.Content);

        }

    }



    public class DataContext

    {

        public ObservableCollection<Item> ListBoxItems { get; set; }

        public Item SelectedItem { get; set; }

        public DataContext()

        {

            ListBoxItems = new ObservableCollection<Item>();

            ListBoxItems.Add(new Item()

            {

                Content = "Test 1"

            });



            ListBoxItems.Add(new Item()

            {

                Content = "Test 2"

            });



            ListBoxItems.Add(new Item()

            {

                Content = "Test 3"

            });



            ListBoxItems.Add(new Item()

            {

                Content = "Test 4"

            });

        }

    }



    public class Item

    {

        public string Content { get; set; }

    }

Hi joriszwaenepoel

var x = DirectCast(listBox1.SelectedItem, ListBoxItem).Content.ToString();
I used your code and I had the following error:

Error      1      The name 'DirectCast' does not exist in the current context
Error      2      'System.Windows.Controls.ListBoxItem' is a 'type' but is used like a 'variable'

I'm not too good on c# but try, .        

Dim x as listboxitem = ctype (listbox1.selectedvalue, listboxitem).tostring()

 Then use x as your variable.

Note Google telerik code converter if u need convert to c #  this is vb

in C# that would be

((ListBoxItem)listBox1.SelectedItem).Content.Tostring()
