Set the property "MultiSelect" to True.
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  for i:= 0 to FileListBox1.Count-1 do
    if FileListBox1.Selected[i] then
      showmessage(FileListBox1.Items.Strings[i]);  // or do whatever you want

Have to set MultiSelect from the properties
Check the SelCount to see if multiple records are selected then loop thro the items checking the Selected[index] method

  I: Integer;
  if FileListBox1.SelCount > 0 then
     for I := 0 to FileListBox1.Count-1 do
       if FileListBox1.Selected[I] then
          //your code
