Experts, I populate a listview from a database. I have a form for the user to add new items or edit an item. When the user adds a new item I repopulate the listview. When this happens i would like to have the item that was just entered selected for the user.
 
After the INSERT query i retrieve the ID of the record that was just inserted. When the items are added to the listview initially i use the name property of the list item and set it to the ID of the record.

lstItem.name = reader.item("ID")

I would never know the index of the item that was just entered, only the ID of the record.
With the setup i have is there a way to select the item i just entered.

Once you've populated your ListView, you can do this:

Me.ListView1.Items(name).Selected = True

For example:

Me.ListView1.Items(reader.Item("ID")).Selected = True

Hope that helps.
