Posted By:satyapriyanayak       Posted Date: October 07, 2013    Points: 40    Category: ASP.NET Controls    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

We will know how to insert all the selected items from the listbox to a database when we click insert button. Before clicking insert button we have to choose all the items from the listbox.

Scenario: - There are two list boxes and five buttons. In the first listbox data will be bind at runtime when page loads. The four buttons are used to transfer items from one listbox1 to listbox2 and vice-versa. And at last there is insert button.

Note: - For listbox2 we have to assign    SelectionMode="Multiple"
