I need to get the selected value of a listview that has 2 columns. I think this should be simple, but I am not getting the value I need. I have a winforms application, in C#. I populate the list view like this:
foreach (var item in documents)
	lstMyList.Items.Add(item.Name + "\t\t" + item.Value + "\t\t");
It displays the list with the values side by side. When I select a value from the list, I want to capture just the item.Name value. How can I do that?
