Selector.SelectedItem Property


Gets or sets the first item in the current selection or returns null if the selection is empty.

 property System::Object ^ SelectedItem { System::Object ^ get(); void set(System::Object ^ value); };
public object SelectedItem { get; set; }
member this.SelectedItem : obj with get, set
Public Property SelectedItem As Object

Property Value

The first item in the current selection or null if the selection is empty.



The following example gets the SelectedItem from a ListBox.

void PrintText(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs args)
    ListBoxItem lbi = ((sender as ListBox).SelectedItem as ListBoxItem);
    tb.Text = "   You selected " + lbi.Content.ToString() + ".";
Private Sub PrintText(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As SelectionChangedEventArgs)

    Dim lbsender As ListBox
    Dim li As ListBoxItem

    lbsender = CType(sender, ListBox)
    li = CType(lbsender.SelectedItem, ListBoxItem)
    tb.Text = "   You selected " & li.Content.ToString & "."
End Sub


If a Selector supports selecting a single item, the SelectedItem property returns the selected item. If a Selector supports multiple selections, SelectedItem returns the item that the user selected first.

Setting SelectedItem in a Selector that supports multiple selections clears existing selected items and sets the selection to the item specified.
