There is a text property to get the text of a control, so just try this:
mytext =  your_control_name.text

where your_control is your control name.

Hope it helps. Regards.

Also, if you want to know the text of an element from who you know its item number, you can do this:
     ListBox1.List(i)

where ListBox1 is the name of your ListBox, and i is the index (the selected index on your case).

Regards.
