trying to understand the point of this listbox

I was hoping for something better than the generic listbox but found this one still won't let me set the selecteditems property.

You really think this is worth $400? Or do I only get the option to set selecteditems if I pay the $400?

Unfortunately, the ListBox.SelectedItems property cannot be set and this is by design. The ListBox has to managed selected items for both synchronous and asynchronous data sources.

If you are using a synchronous data source and have set the appropriate selection mode, you may be allowed to add and/or remove items from the selected items collection.
