Easiest option is to use a loop to cycle through the listview items, for example:

dim li as item

for each li in listview1
    if li.index >= lngStartPos then
        if li.text = strSearch then
            li.selected = true
            exit for
        end if
    end if
next


Then supply strSearch to search for and lngStartPos for where to start (eg listview1.selecteditem.index)

If you need to search again from the beginning, then add another loop with "if li.index < lngstartpos then..."


Of course, this only searches the .text (primary column) if you need to search the subitems, then you'll have to loop through them within the above loop.  Depends on whether you want to search by column or row... (row is easier)

You could use the acutal Find method of the listview control:

Dim lstItemX as ListItem
Dim iIndex as integer

Set lstItemX = ListView1.Find("MyName",lvwSubItem,1,lvwWholeWord)

If lstItemX Is Nothing Then
   ' No item found
Else
   ' Item was found
   debug.Print "Index of item where MyName was found = " & lstItem.Index

   ' Here you would put up a dialogue saying do you want  to find next.
   ' If the user did want to find next then you would bein the search at the index where you found the last item
   Set lstItemX = ListView1.Find("MyName",lvwSubItem,iIndex,lvwWholeWord)

End If


This is just a simple bit of code to give you an idea of how to use the list views 'Find' Method. Look up the properties you need to pass it in MSDN.

Sorry when you find the first item you should set:

iIndex = lstItemX.Index
iIndex = Index + 1

Then pass the value to Find Method of listview, to being the search fromt there.
