How to change the Selected Item's forecolor in ListBox-URGENT

Posts: n/a

When a listbox's Enabled property is set to false the control is greyed
out to show that the control is
disabled/read-only. However, when the control is disabled
and an item is selected you can barely see the text that
is selected . Is it possible to change
the SelectedItem's forecolor to perhaps white and leave
the unselected ones grey when the control's Enabled
property is set to false.

You can use something like:

<option style="background-color:red">Selected</option>

I do belive it is possible, though I haven't tried it Something
like this code should work, though of course you will have to determine
when to set it, and replace with your own listbox

ListItem itm = myList.Items[ myList.SelectedIndex ];
