Silverlight ListBox Control

The Silverlight ListBox control provides all the functionality of a standard (web) ListBox.  Here we have a simple example showing how to implement a ListBox in XAML and how to respond to selection changes in C#.

How to Use the ListBox Control

To use it on your Silverlight page:

<UserControl x:Class="ListBox_Test.Page"
    Width="400" Height="300">
        <ListBox x:Name="list" Canvas.Top="10" Canvas.Left="10" Width="200" Height="200" SelectionChanged="list_ItemSelected">
            <ListBoxItem Content="Australia" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Canada" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="China" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="France" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Germany" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="India" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Italy" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Japan" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Pakistan" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Portugal" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Republic of Ireland" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Russia" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Saudi Arabia" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Spain" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Sweden" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="United Kingdom" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="USA" />

Our example contains one listbox, populated with some country information.  You can hook into the ItemSelected event to detect selections and provide your own logic here.

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace ListBox_Test
    public partial class Page : UserControl
        public Page()

        private void list_ItemSelected(object sender, EventArgs e)
            // Process the selected item changed event here
