How can I make the list box scroll to selected item RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a textbox that searches the listbox below it and selects the text that I types in the textbox.

    Now although the item is selected in the listbox I have to scroll to the end to see if the item is selected ornot

    IS there a way that I can make the list box scroll to the selected item?

  • use 

    YourListbox.SelectedIndex = YourListbox.FindString(textbox.text) 

    Can be typos or other slight non correct changes in this message, but when you set it in your code you will see it.

    You can also us FindStringExact which does like it tells.

  • .Findstring and .Findstringexact are for windows and I am using a webform. I cant use it.

    Maintain autopostback="true" is achieving the results in one app (on VS2008 ) but not on the app that  I am working on right now.  

    Environment details: (not working)

    • IIS 6 on Win Server 2003
    • The virtual directory is running ASP.NET 2.0.50727
    • I have set maintainScrollPositionOnPostBack="True" in the page directive Any ideas?
