yes you can.
this example has three items in a listview:

procedure TForm1.ListView1DblClick(Sender: TObject);
var
  Valgt : integer;
begin
if ListView1.Selected <> nil then
  begin
  case ListView1.Selected.Index of
    0: DoSomethingWithItem1;
    1: DoSomethingWithItem2;
    2: DoSomethingWithItem3;
  end;
  end;
end;

HI,

Use DblClick event then search for the selected items like this:

procedure TFrm_S_Main.MI_SendMessageClick(Sender: TObject);
var index: integer;
    ListItem: TListItem;
begin
  for index:=0 to LV_UsersView.Items.Count-1 do begin
    ListItem:= LV_UsersView.Items[index];
    if ListItem.Selected then begin
      // do whatever you want
      end;
  end;

Hope that help.

to actually get the double click event on the listview, you have to select the listview, click on the event-tab in the object inspector (push F11) if it is not visible on the screen. then search your way down to the event "OnDblClick". Just double-click in the field here, and delphi will create an empty double-click event on the listview for you like this:

procedure TForm1.ListView1DblClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
end;

then you can fill in with my code
(only if you have three items, thoug. if you have e.g two items , remove the last case sentence)

If you aren't using the MultiSelect mode, you can just use the TlistView.Selected property to identify the selected item in the list.

procedure TForm1.DoSomething(ListItem : TListItem);
begin
  //Do your thing here
end;

procedure TForm1.ListView1DblClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with Sender as TListView do
    if Selected<>nil then
      DoSomething(Selected);
end;

If you want to physically (even though it is a program) doubleclick you can use mouse events:

1. Specify a point
2. Setcursor(point.x,point.y)
3.mouse_event(lmouse_down,0,0,0,0); //Press F1 to make sure my syntax is correct as i think it is wrong. You want the left
   mouse_event(lmouse_up,0,0,0,0)                                                         mouse down and the left mouse up to do one click
   mouse_event(lmouse_down,0,0,0,0); //Do again for a double click
   mouse_event(lmouse_up,0,0,0,0);

Probably not what you are looking for but anyway try it.
