Dim i as integer
i = lvOffers.selectedIndex it always returns -1

Do you populate the listView in the page_load event? If so, you are probably losing the selection. In most cases, you only need to re-load the listView when page.IsPostback = false..

hope this helps :)

No, I populate the list from OnSelectedIndexChanged event of a DataGrid control, so it only populates if the user click on the select button of the DataGrid

My guess is that it's still being reset or re-populated somehow. If you put a break point into the very first line of your page_load event and check what SelectedIndex is (when it breaks after clicking the select button), do you still see -1 or does it have a value?

I debuged the app and it only populates once and still returns -1. Do I have to have a selectedItemtemplate for it to return the selectedindex?
