Listbox getes populated and appears to work well.

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
         <br />
                    <asp:ListBox ID="lstKeyword" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" Height="260px"
                        Width="2.5in" BackColor="Azure"  
                        OnSelectedIndexChanged = "lstKeyword_SelectedIndexChanged">
                    </asp:ListBox>
                    <br />
   
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Code behind:

private void FillKeyWordList()
    {
        lstKeyword.Items.Clear();

         string selectSQL = "SELECT KeyWordID, Keyword + ' - ' + CAST(Keywords.MonthlySearches AS varchar(100)) AS Info FROM Keywords Keywords WHERE IsActive = 1 ORDER BY keyword ";
       
        string strConnection = connString.ToString();

        SqlConnection conStockSelect = new SqlConnection(strConnection);

        // Try to open the connection.
        conStockSelect.Open();

        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(selectSQL, conStockSelect);

        lstKeyword.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader();
        lstKeyword.DataTextField = "Info";
        lstKeyword.DataValueField = "KeyWordID";
        lstKeyword.DataBind();
        conStockSelect.Close();
        cmd.Dispose();
    }

// Get listbox value

  protected void lstKeyword_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
        // Get the currently selected item in the ListBox.
// Row appears to be selected by clicking.

        int intSelected = lstKeyword.SelectedIndex;
        intSelected = lstKeyword.SelectedIndex; // Returns -1, row not selected.
       
        lstKeyword.SelectedIndex = 5;  // The selection can be forced
