J2ME : How to get data from listing menu

I'm new in J2ME. I need your help to solve my problem.

I use php to retrieve data from mysql to my j2me application the outcome is in lists of data.
After I get a list of data, the list can be selected for data details.

String A
String B
String C

if using this command, index = listInfo.getSelectedIndex();  
the result is only index data in interger

After selected String A, what command should i use in order that i can get "String A" data in text not just the index.

Thank you
Best regards

                  kodea= ??? <<<<<<< THIS line .. I don't know what syntax I should use
Try this:

index = listInfo.getSelectedIndex();
kodea = listInfo.getText(index);

I got error msg with that line

Building "Inkarta"
c:\WTK104\apps\Inkarta\src\keterlambatanjktyog.java:96: cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : method getText  (int)
location: class javax.microedition.lcdui.List
                  kode = listInfo.getText(index);

I'm sorry, that should be getString(index);
