To simulate a keypress use Sendkeys

SendKeys "{UP}"

When an item is checked or unchecked in a listview this event is fired.  Use it this way...

ItemClick(ByVal Item As MSComctlLib.ListItem)
    Msgbox "The item tag is " & Item.Tag
End Sub

Something like this should work...

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   
    lv.ListItems(lv.SelectedItem.Index + 1).Selected = True
   
End Sub

NOTE: If you are on the last item then you will probably get an error so you will want to check before hand.

But if you do that, item is not selected anymore!

I assumed that Vlad77 wanted to scroll through the listview by clicking a button.

I have not tested this, but perhaps setting the MultiSelect property to True would leave the previous items selected if that is what Vlad wants.

I guess I'm not really sure what (he/she) wants :)

I see what you are saying...The listview loses focus.  

Yea, SetFocus will fix that.

(See what happens when you just merrily type away in the EE text box and not test the code?)
