ASPxClientListEdit.GetSelectedIndex Method

Returns the index of the selected item within the list editor.


GetSelectedIndex(): number


Type Description

The index of the selected item.


Use the GetSelectedIndex method to identify the selected item within the list editor by its index. A value of -1 indicates that no item is currently selected within the list editor.


The code sample below demonstrates how you can use the ASPxTrackBar control to display the wavelength range of the selected color.

The ASPxClientListEdit.SelectedIndexChanged event is handled to specify the track bar range interval. The ASPxClientTrackBar.SetPositionStart and ASPxClientTrackBar.SetPositionEnd methods specify range limits.

The image below shows the result.


function setWavelength() {
     if (colorList.GetSelectedIndex() == 0) tbWavelength.SetPositionEnd(750)
     else tbWavelength.SetPositionEnd(colorList.GetItem(colorList.GetSelectedIndex() - 1).value); 
     label.SetText('The visible ' + colorList.GetSelectedItem().text + ' light has a wavelength in the interval ' 
     + tbWavelength.GetPositionStart() + ' to ' + tbWavelength.GetPositionEnd() + ' nm');
