Hi,

The following is my code, I am trying to move items from one listbox to another. But I am getting

System.InvalidOperationException: Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute.

I guess it is because as item in listBox1 was removed, the count is different.

    protected void MoveMultibtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        if (listBox1.SelectedIndex == -1)
        {
            testBox.Text = "Please select an item";
        }
        else
        {
                foreach (ListItem item in listBox1.Items)
                {
                    if (item.Selected)
                    {
                        listBox2.Items.Add(item);
                        listBox1.Items.Remove(listBox1.SelectedItem);
                    }
                }


        }



    }

When enumerating a list to remove items, you have to do it in reverse.  This means that you do one of two things:

A.  Use a reversed for...loop:
for (int i = listBox1.Items.Count - 1; i >= 0; i--)
{
	if ((listBox1.Items[i] as ListItem).Selected)
	{
		listBox2.Items.Add(listBox1.Items[i]);
		listBox1.Items.Remove(listBox1.Items[i]);
	}
}

Open in new window

B.  Use a reversed foreach...loop:
foreach (var item in listBox1.Items.Cast<ListItem>().Reverse())
{
	if (item.Selected)
	{
		listBox2.Items.Add(item);
		listBox1.Items.Remove(item);
	}
}
