Code below, assign it to a button click or repost when the user selects an item.

Hope this helps!
Dim UserSelectedItem = ListView1.SelectedItems
Label1.Text = UserSelectedItem

Sorry, seems your correct there, never really played around with PPC dev, you would imagine it was the same code wise. Try this:

listview.selectedindices

Hope this helps!

Do not quite understand the way the he used selectindices, could you kindly explain a little n if possible with a little code sample, that would be well.

Hmmm, this seems a bit of a round about way of getting it but tested and works. Why wouldn't they include selecteditems in the compact framework!


Private Function listview1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) As privatevoid 
    For x As Integer = 0 To listview1.Items.Count - 1 
        
        
        If listview1.Items(x).Selected Then 
            MessageBox.Show(listview1.Items(x).SubItems(1).Text) 
        End If 
    Next 
    
End Function
