I have a form with a listview control that is populated with CustomerID, CustomerName. I have a combo box on the form that is filled with the same information.  I am using suggest/append setting on the combo box for the user to search for the customer. When they find the customer, they press tab for example. Then, take the CustomerID from the combo box and lookup the matching entry in the listview. highlight the listview selection, lookup the record and display in text fields.

Thanks

You can try something like this:

    Private Sub Form2_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        For index As Integer = 1 To 10
            ComboBox1.Items.Add(index.ToString())
            ListBox1.Items.Add(index.ToString())
        Next
    End Sub

    Private Sub ComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ComboBox1.SelectedIndexChanged
        Dim text As String = ComboBox1.SelectedItem.ToString()
        Dim index As Integer = ListBox1.FindStringExact(text)
        If index <> 0 Then
            ListBox1.SelectedIndex = index
            TextBox1.Text = ComboBox1.SelectedItem.ToString()
        End If
    End Sub

The following C# code will do what you're looking for based upon whatever combobox ID you have selected:
private void comboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            // Loop through the list view checking the first subitem (which is your first column
            foreach (ListViewItem item in listView1.Items)
            {
                if (item.SubItems[0].Text == comboBox1.Text)
                {
                    item.Selected = true;
                    textBox1.Text = item.SubItems[0].Text; // your customer id
                    textBox2.Text = item.SubItems[1].Text; // Your customer name
                }
            }
        }
