I like to have A listview, a TEdit and a TButton.

What I like to do is to be able to select (multiselect ) things in the listView and then type in a number in the
TEdit and push the button. What I like to happen is to
have the SUbitems[2] set to TEdit.Text for the selected items.

I have 2 questions though. When I try to do this the listview always lose the selection when I step into the EditBox or when I push the button... how can I prevent this to happen?

And how do I go through all Selected Items and set the Subitems[2] to TEdit.Text?

This appears to work...

On the button click event.. add this..

Var
  Loop : Integer;
  Item : TListItem;
begin
  Item := ListView1.Selected;
  For Loop := 0 To ListView1.SelCount-1 Do Begin
    Item.SubItems[2] := Edit1.Text;
    Item := ListView1.GetNextItem(Item, sdAll, [isSelected]);
  End;
end;

about the selection loosing try setting the HideSelection property of the listview to false..
