    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>

  3. 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 ];
