How to select multiple item from database based on list box multiple select ?
I set listbox 1 control property selection mode to Multi Simple
code below select only one item selected from list box and work without any problem but select only one item
but if i need to multi select for list box How to changes my code below
public DataTable ShowaSpecificSerial(string SerialNo)

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(connection);

string str = "select * from View_showdata where SerialNo=@SerialNo";
SqlCommand com = new SqlCommand();
com = new SqlCommand(str, con);
com.Parameters.AddWithValue("@SerialNo", SerialNo);
SqlDataAdapter oledbda = new SqlDataAdapter();
oledbda = new SqlDataAdapter(com);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
ds = new DataSet();
oledbda.Fill(ds, "View_showdata");
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
dt = ds.Tables["View_showdata"];
return dt;


under button i write following :

 private void button5_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
string root = @"D:\Temp";

if (!Directory.Exists(root))


Class1 CLS = new Class1();
DataTable dt = CLS.ShowaSpecificSerial(listBox3.SelectedValue.ToString());

for (int i = 0; i <= Convert.ToInt32(dt.Rows.Count) - 1; i++)
txt = "UserID" + dt.Rows[i][0] + "ProductNo" + dt.Rows[i][1] + "Firm Name" + dt.Rows[i][2] + "BtachNo" + dt.Rows[i][3] + "SerialNo" + dt.Rows[i][4];

dm.DM(txt, Color.FromName(comboBox1.SelectedItem.ToString()), Color.White).Save(root + "\\" + dt.Rows[i][4] + ".emf", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Emf);

Sample data to view View_showdata :

UserID Product Firm BatchNo SerialNo

Try using table value parameter in stored procedure to pass list of selected item and matched with database.
