try this code:

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long

Const LVM_FIRST = &H1000&
Const LVM_HITTEST = LVM_FIRST + 18

Private Type POINTAPI
    X As Long
    Y As Long
End Type

Private Type LVHITTESTINFO
    pt As POINTAPI
    flags As Long
    iItem As Long
    iSubItem As Long
End Type


Private Sub Form_Load()
    With ListView1.ListItems
        .Add Text:="Test item #1"
        .Add Text:="Test item #2"
        .Add Text:="Long long long test item #3"
    End With
End Sub

Private Sub ListView1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Dim lvhti As LVHITTESTINFO
Dim lItemIndex As Long
Static m_lCurItemIndex As Long
    lvhti.pt.X = X / Screen.TwipsPerPixelX
    lvhti.pt.Y = Y / Screen.TwipsPerPixelY
    lItemIndex = SendMessage(ListView1.hwnd, LVM_HITTEST, 0, lvhti) + 1
    If m_lCurItemIndex <> lItemIndex Then
        m_lCurItemIndex = lItemIndex
        If m_lCurItemIndex <> 0 Then
            Me.Caption = ListView1.ListItems(m_lCurItemIndex).Text
        End If
    End If

or even better:



Option Explicit

Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long

Const LVM_FIRST = &H1000&
Const LVM_HITTEST = LVM_FIRST + 18

Private Type POINTAPI
    x As Long
    y As Long
End Type

Private Type LVHITTESTINFO
    pt As POINTAPI
    flags As Long
    iItem As Long
    iSubItem As Long
End Type


Private Sub Form_Load()
    With ListView1.ListItems
        .Add Text:="Test item #1"
        .Add Text:="Test item #2"
        .Add Text:="Long long long test item #3"
    End With
End Sub

Private Sub ListView1_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)
Dim lvhti As LVHITTESTINFO
Dim lItemIndex As Long
    lvhti.pt.x = x / Screen.TwipsPerPixelX
    lvhti.pt.y = y / Screen.TwipsPerPixelY
    lItemIndex = SendMessage(ListView1.hwnd, LVM_HITTEST, 0, lvhti) + 1
    If lItemIndex <> 0 Then
        MsgBox "You clicked on: " & ListView1.ListItems(lItemIndex).Text, vbOKOnly, ""
    End If
End Sub
