I am writting an application in VC5 and using an MFC  CListCtrl.  I can't seem to find any WM_ messages or overiable function which notify me of when an item is selected.

How do you find out when an item is selected in the list and which one it is?

LVN_ITEMCHANGED notification is sent to you after an item has changed

LVN_ITEMCHANGING notification is sent just before an item is changing

Use GetNextItem to find which item is selected.

      int nItem = m_list.GetNextItem( -1, LVNI_SELECTED ) ;

// nItem is now -1 if nothing is found - or 0 or greater : meaning the index of the item

The -1 in the parameter list is where to start searching from (-1 means from the start, 0 or greater meaning the index of the item).  If you are looking for multiple selections, repeatedly call this function to find the next item item
