Type Description

An object representing the item’s value. The String.Empty value if the item index provided is invalid.


This method’s return value is an object whose textual representation is the specified item’s display text.

If a list box control displays data field values, the GetDisplayItemValue method returns this field’s value in the specified record. Note: you should use the BaseListBoxControl.DataSource and BaseListBoxControl.DisplayMember properties to bind the list box to a data source and to specify the field supplying display values.

When using a ListBoxControl control, the GetDisplayItemValue method returns an element of the ListBoxControl.Items collection. If using a CheckedListBoxControl or ImageListBoxControl control, the GetDisplayItemValue method returns the ComboBoxItem.Value property of the specified list box item.

If you need to obtain the item’s display text, call the BaseListBoxControl.GetItemText method instead.
