try this:


POSITION pos = m_ListCtrl.GetFirstSelectedItemPosition();
int nItem = m_ListCtrl.GetNextSelectedItem(pos);

Hi rupak_khurana,

Generally you get list control's selected entries with i.e.:

// assuming m_List is your list control object
....
int nItem;
for ( POSITION pos = m_List.GetFirstSelectedItemPosition(); pos != NULL; )
{
 nItem = m_List.GetNextSelectedItem(pos);
 // do something with the item at index nItem
}
....

if you're sure there's only one selected item you can do
....
int nItem;
POSITION pos = m_List.GetFirstSelectedItemPosition();
if ( pos == NULL )
{
 // no item selected
 return;
}
nItem = m_List.GetNextSelectedItem(pos);
// do something with the item at index nItem
....

hope that helps,

ZOPPO

Hmmm, too late           :(

but you should check the return value from GetFirstSelectedItem() ...
