I was using a listbox, code below

i changed to a listview, and now i need the numbers in the selected line and in column1 in a variable from the listview.

The question is, how do i get this number?

The code below is how i did it with a listbox, with that code you should understand what i mean :)
'Dim ordrevalg As String = Me.listordre.SelectedItem

Open in new window

Assumming column 1 is first one, this should be enough:

Dim ordregvalg as String = Me.listordre.SelectedItem.Text

No, you dont understand, that code is the one i used, i have a listview box now, not a listbox

I need to get the first number in the listview box (column 1) that is selected.

So i need the same function for the listview box, so the code above illustrates on a listbox

The code was only there to show what i mean with a listbox, i need to do the same for a listview box as i did for the listbox

you follow?

assumming you have anything selected in the listview, you can do this:

Dim ordregvalg as String = Me.listordre.SelectedItems(0).Text

This gets the contents of the first cell (column) in the first selected item (row)

You have to notice this: if Me.listordre.SelectedItems.Count = 0, then the line proposed will produce an exception, you have to check this first.

Yes, i have it embedded in a try catch, this would capture any error :)
