Usually there is a collection of "selected indices".

For example, in VB.Net:

        For i As Integer = 0 To ListView1.SelectedIndices.Count - 1
            Dim index As Integer = ListView1.SelectedIndices(i)
            Dim lvi As ListViewItem = ListView1.Items(index)

You could also access the items directly:

        For Each lvi As ListView In ListView1.SelectedItems
            ' something with "lvi"...

I got Solution for my self I had develop a function which return the currently selected index:

 Private Function FindIndex() As Integer
        Dim intSelIndex As Integer
              If Me.lv_LineItem.lvDisplay.SelectedItems.Count = 1 Then
            m_ValueofZerothIndex = Me.lv_LineItem.lvDisplay.SelectedIndices.Item(0)
            intSelIndex = 0
            If m_ValueofZerothIndex = Me.lv_LineItem.lvDisplay.SelectedIndices.Item(0) Then
                m_ValueofZerothIndex = Me.lv_LineItem.lvDisplay.SelectedIndices.Item(0)
                intSelIndex = Me.lv_LineItem.lvDisplay.SelectedItems.Count - 1
                m_ValueofZerothIndex = Me.lv_LineItem.lvDisplay.SelectedIndices.Item(0)
                intSelIndex = 0
            End If
        End If
        Return intSelIndex
    End Function
