Im trying this

[CODE]
procedure TForm1.SendData1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Socket: TCustomWinSocket;
  Data: string;
  i: integer;
begin
  if not assigned(listview1.Selected) then exit;
  for i := 0 to listview1.Items.Count do
  Socket := TCustomWinSocket(listview1.Items[i].Selected);
  Data := inputbox('Send Data','Caption','command');
  Socket.SendText(Data);
end;
[/CODE]

and im getting this error:

Project xxxx.exe raised exception class EAccessViolation with message 'Access violation at address 00437EC8 in module xxxx.exe. Read of address 00000004'. Process stopped.

The code is a multiselect listview that send a comment to multiple servers, it only worked to me without multiselect using" listview1.Selected.Data" in >>>  Socket := TCustomWinSocket(listview1.Items[i].Selected);

Also tried listview1.Items[i].Data and doesnt work.

Socket := TCustomWinSocket(listview1.Items[i].Selected);
is incorrect. the items property of the listview returns a TListItem.

TCustomWinSocket(listview1.Items[i].Data)
will work IF you are setting it before use.

when you add the customwinsocket to the lsitview, you also need to set the data property of the listitem to the customwinsocket. somethinglike:

onconnect:

with listview1items.add do
begin
  caption:='whatever';
  data:=connectingclientobject which is derives from TCustomWinSocket;
end;

also,

for i := 0 to listview1.Items.Count do

is wrong.

it should be

for i := 0 to listview1.Items.Count-1 do

more:

  for i := 0 to listview1.Items.Count do
  Socket := TCustomWinSocket(listview1.Items[i].Selected);

the above will assign to socket the values until the last one so it's aquivalent to
Socket := TCustomWinSocket(listview1.Items[listview1.Items.Count].Selected);

notice that I kept the

listview1.Items[i].Selected

even though it should be
listview1.Selected

your posted code is a mess alltogether :) I can't make out what you actually wanted to do, but hopefully with above mentioned problems fixed, you can post a cleaner code. if you still have problems.

could you give me a quick example besides all this socket stuff of how to put a multiple listview selection to a loop to do something (the same thing for all) with each selection ?

sure

var i:integer;
    l:tlistitem;
begin
  l:=listview1.Selected;
  for i:=1 to listview1.SelCount do
  begin
    showmessage(l.Caption);
    l:=listview1.GetNextItem(l, sdBelow, [isSelected]);
  end;
end;
