Have you tried this:     ListView1.SelectedItem.ListSubItems.Count

Commented:
The other way can be SendMessage with parameter:
LVM_GETSELECTEDCOUNT    (LVM_FIRST + 50)

Commented:
I prefer the For Each technique.. no indexes / collection holes to worry about.. and it is just as fast.. <smile>.

<----- Code Begin ----->

Public Function xSelectedCount _
(byval ilvwListView as Listview) _
as Long

Dim itmWork as ListItem
Dim lngSelected As Long

For Each itmWork in ilvwListView

  If itmWork.Selected _
  Then
     lngSelected = lngSelected + 1
  End If
 
Next itmWork

xSelectedCount = lngSelected

End Function

<----- Code End ----->

To use this function..

Dim lngCount as Long
lngCount = xSelectedCount(Me.Listview1)

<smile>
