I am using Listbox with selection mode as multiple.
<asp:ListBox ID="ListBox1" SelectionMode="Multiple"  runat="server">
        <asp:ListItem>one</asp:ListItem>
        <asp:ListItem>two</asp:ListItem>
        <asp:ListItem>thr</asp:ListItem>
        </asp:ListBox>


The following code displays the selected item in Listbox. But how do i display multiple selected items in the listbox.
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
// let the array srr be the selected items
        string[] srr = { "one", "thr" };
        foreach (string item in srr)
        {
            ListBox1.SelectedValue = item;
        }
    }

Thanks.

I want to show in the listBox itself. Show selected multiple items. I mentioned it in question.

C#
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
 string[] srr = { "one", "thr" };
 foreach (string item in srr)
 {
 for (int intItem = 0; intItem &lt;= ListBox1.Items.Count - 1; intItem++) {
      if(ListBox1.Items(intItem).Text == item){
            ListBox1.Items(intItem).Selected = true;
      }
    }
}

Good one.
Check the selected property of each item. Have a look at the example at this link:

Good luck!

The link has nothing to do with my requirement. I want to show the selected items(multiple) in the LISTBOX.

If you look at the example you will find the C# code just below the start of the body. It is quite the same as the code given in the answer of ToniyoJackson. Further is ListBox a descendant of ListControl (obviously) and the methods and properties used are simply inherited.
