hi,

when i am click on an item in my listcontrol (reportview)
using the mouse i can get the info of this item using:

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

how i can find the index of the item while scrolling using the up/down arrows?

Try to subclass listctr(derive your class from it and from OnInitDlg or InitialUpdate call SubclassDlgItem for instance of this class)
and in PreTranslateMessage() of this class
{
if(pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN && pMsg->wParam == VK_UP)
CPoint point;
GetCursorPos(&point);
if(-1 != HitTest(point))
index = HitTest(point);
}

Hi!
you have to catch LVN_ITEMCHANGED notify message and check
uNewState member of the LPNMLISTVIEW for LVIS_SELECTED flag
that is

//////////////////
// User selected a different item: select the form
//
LRESULT CLeftView::OnItemChanged(NMLISTVIEW* pnmlv)
{
   if ((pnmlv->uChanged & LVIF_STATE) &&
       (pnmlv->uNewState & LVIS_SELECTED)) {
       m_pFormView->SetForm(pnmlv->iItem);
   }
   return 0;
}

you must insert notify handler into the ListView Parent window. or use MFC message reflection to catch it in the listview object(to do this you must derive your own class from standard CListViewCtrl)

migel: i try both your options but they dont seem to work
there seems to be now SetForm Function
and the parameters to OnLvnItemchangedMenulist are (NMHDR *pNMHDR, LRESULT *pResult)

so
LRESULT CLeftView:: OnLvnItemchangedMenulist(NMHDR *pNMHDR, LRESULT *pResult)
{
LPNMLISTVIEW pnmlv = (LPNMLISTVIEW)pNMHDR;
  if ((pnmlv->uChanged & LVIF_STATE) &&
      (pnmlv->uNewState & LVIS_SELECTED)) {
// pnmlv->iItem - selected item
  }
  return 0;
}

if you make your class CMyList:public CListCtrl and on call in CYouDlg::OnInitDlg{ mylist.SubclassDlgItem(IDC_LISTCTRL)}
where mylist is instance of your class(CMyList), all messages will handled by your class(WM_LBUTTONDOWN and so on). if you try code in PreTranslateMessage above to filter msg I think it should work.
