Selection

The ListBox widget allows you to highlight the selected item. It allows multiple selection also.

Selection on initialize

By default, the ListBox widget allows single item selection. We can select specific item during initialization of the ListBox widget using the “SelectedIndex” property.

            </Items>
        </ej:ListBox>

    Checkbox

    The ListBox widget allows selection through checkbox. It can be enabled using “ShowCheckbox” property.
    The specified items can be checked on initialize through “checkedIndices” property.

    In design page add the ListBox and set the indices of the items to be checked in code behind.

                <ej:ListBoxItems Text="Audi A4"></ej:ListBoxItems>

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                ListBox.ShowCheckbox = true;
                List<int> items = new List<int>();
                items.Add(1);
                items.Add(2);
