listbox click problem

I'm trying to create a playlist for a mediaplayer I'm writing in Borland c++ builder 3.

Here's the code i've written:

void __fastcall TMainForm::PlayListDblClick(TObject *Sender)
{
for (int i = 0; i < PlayList->Items->Count; i++)// this where i think i'm wrong.
{
MediaPlayer1->FileName = PlayList->Items->Strings[i].c_str();
MediaPlayer1->Open();
    MediaPlayer1->Play();
    TrackBar1->Max = MediaPlayer1->Length;
    MainForm->Caption = "Visual Player: " +
ExtractFileName(MediaPlayer1->FileName);
    Timer1->Enabled = true;
}
}

as you can see the code will go down the list till it gets to the last entry then plays that entry.
i need it to play the item the user Dubble clicks on and not the last entry in the list. playlist is the listbox from borlands vcl.

Thanks for any help.

see jukebox apps from

as an example of using PlayList and

PlayListDblClicked()
{
      int index=0;
      int len=0;

      //for getting the list item text
      //u can also use simple chacter string here
      CString ListItem;

      //get the index of item i.e dbl clicked
      index=m_PlayList .GetCurSel ();

      //get the length of the item
      len=m_PlayList.GetTextLen (index);

       //finally get the text of the item
     m_PlayList.GetText (index,ListItem.GetBuffer (len));
      ListItem.ReleaseBuffer ();

     MediaPlayer1->FileName =ListItem;
     ///do what ever u want with the list item
     ........
}

simply try to find compatible functions in ur compiler
