Get multiple selected values of Jquery's Select2 from code behind using asp.net

I'm combining Select2 with asp.net code behind to get the values. And now I want to get all the selected values using code behind too. But I can't get it to work. Here is my HTML code

<div class="form-group">
<label>Multiple</label>
<select class="form-control select2" id="ddLokasi" multiple="true"
runat="server" data-placeholder="Pilih Lokasi" style="width:100%;">
</select>
</div>


As you can see, I manage to get the Select2 working on my web.

Now I want to get all the values that I already selected into an array. How to do this in code behind using asp.net VB ?

Thanks

Answer

Do something like this in your code-behind:

  For i As Integer = 0 To ddLokasi.Items.Count
            If (ddLokasi.Items(i).Selected)
                //Get values
                //ddLokasi.Items(i).Value
            End If
    Next

UPDATE

Dim listOfValues AS List(Of String) = new List(Of String)
        For Each item As ListItem In ddLokasi.Items
            If item.Selected Then
                listOfValues.Add(item.Value)
            End If
        Next
