I have a asp:ListBox with a SelectedIndexChanged that fires. When I click it once it shows a value; however when I click another item that value shows as well as the first value. How can I clear the first value when I click on the listbox again?

Please provide the code for your SelectedIndexChanged method.

The assignment to your labels uses +=.  This is the same as using:

label1.Text = label1.Text + reader["FullName"] + "<br />";

If this was your intent or not the correct issue please let me know.

Otherwise, the below code has been modified to assign the new value to the labels.

protected void PersonList_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
	ListBox list = (ListBox)sender;
	SqlConnection conn;
	SqlCommand comm;
	SqlDataReader reader;
	string connectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["DConn"].ConnectionString;
	conn = new SqlConnection(connectionString);
	comm = new SqlCommand("SELECT IntNum, FullName, SSN FROM TestNames WHERE IntNum = @ListID", conn);
	comm.Parameters.Add("@ListID", System.Data.SqlDbType.Int);
	comm.Parameters["@ListID"].Value = list.SelectedValue;
	try
	{
		conn.Open();
		reader = comm.ExecuteReader();
		while (reader.Read())
		{
			label1.Text = reader["FullName"] + "<br />";
			label2.Text = reader["SSN"] + "<br />";
		}
			reader.Close();
		}
		finally
		{
			conn.Close();
		}
	}
}
