Is it possible to scroll to the position of a selected element?

Hi!

I have a ListBox where when I add a new item it automatically gets selected. While this isn't a problem when it's in the visible area of the ListBox.

What I would like to do is that if I add an item e.g. beginning with a "z" it is out of the visible area. I'd like to be able to scroll down to the selected item.

Is this possible?

Hi Paul,   
  
Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.   
  
Query #1: “I have a ListBox where when I add a new item it automatically gets selected.”   
  
We tried to reproduce the reported scenario, but we were unable to reproduce the issue.  In our list box control, you can add new items using addItem public method.  But, it will not automatically select the newly added item.  If you wish to select items automatically when add a new item, then you need to use selection public method for selecting a newly added item.  Please refer to the following code.   
  
ListBoxFeatures.cshtml   
   
<script type="text/javascript">   
function onClick(args) {   
        var obj = $("#selectbike").ejListBox("instance");   
        obj.addItem("Zone" + i);   
        $('#selectbike').ejListBox("selectItemByText""Zone" + i);   
        i++;   
  }   
</script>   
  
  
  
Please use the above playground to reproduce your issue and if possible please share us the code snippets of the page you were using or else please share the proper replication procedure.  This information will be helpful for us to analyze further on the issue and to provide a solution.   
   
Query #2: “What I would like to do is that if I add an item e.g. beginning with a "z" it is out of the visible area. I'd like to be able to scroll down to the selected item.”   
   
If you wish to scroll down to the selected item, you can use getSelectedItems public method for getting selected items and visible to select item by using scrollIntoView() method.  We have created a simple listbox sample.  If you click add button, then add new item to the list box control using addItem public method and then select newly added item by using selectItemByText and scroll into selected item by using scrollIntoView() method.  Please refer to the following code.   
   
ListBoxFeatures.cshtml   
   
<script type="text/javascript">   
    var i = 0;   
    function onClick(args) {   
        var obj = $("#selectbike").ejListBox("instance");   
        ………   
        obj.listItemsElement[obj.getSelectedItems()[0].index].scrollIntoView() // Get list items element of selected item and then called scrollIntoView method   
    }   
</script>
