I am using a ListCtrl, and if an item is selected and the user has pressed "Enter" (or carriage-return). Then my program should do something?
But I don't know how to do this, so could you please assist me?
Thanks in advance.

Provided the control has the focus, you will get an NM_RETURN notification message (sent in the form of a WM_NOTIFY message) whenever the user presses return

Use the class wizard to add a handler for NM_RETURN Message.

In the handler test what (if any) item(s) are selected using GetNextItem member of CListCtrl.  

// example find first selected item
int index = GetNextItem( -1, LVNI_SELECTED ) ;

index then is -1 (nothing selected) or index of first item selected.  If you list control allows more than 1 item to be selected, repeatedly call GetNextItem with the previous value of index to get the 2nd item, 3rd item etc until you get -1 back indicating no more items are selected.

Then do whatever you want with these items.
