Using this method will return only the selected items. It uses the Windows API to Send the Get Selected Items Message to the List.

I'm not sure that you can get through a list view and find only the select items... but this should work for you.


For x= 1 to ListView1.ListItems.Count
    If ListView1.ListItems(x).Selected Then
        'the rest of your code goes here
    End If
Next

Yes, I will need help implementing this.
Some of the constants aren't listed in the sample code (LV_ITEM, LVIF_TEXT, etc.).
