If there is just one selected item:
   with GetCurSel() You get the index of selected item in listbox.
If there are more selected items:
   with GetSelCount() You get the number of selected items and with GetSelItems() You get array with index of selected items.

here is an example:
     int cnt = m_srcList.GetSelCount();
     int *rgIndex = new int(cnt);
     m_srcList.GetSelItems(cnt, rgIndex);    

     
     CString str;

CStringArray strArry;
     for(int i=0; i<cnt; i++){
          m_srcList.GetText(rgIndex[i], str);
               strArry.Add(str);
     }

now strArray contain the selected items and rgIndex contain array of the indexes of the selected items

good luck

To sedqwick !
That solution will not work if in listbox is not allowed multiselect.

To mejaz01 !
In my comment words if there is just one selected item or more than one item means that your list box alow to select just one or more items (mean what style is checked: multiselect or single select).
