Hello I am having some trouble figuring out how to get the selected row of a list view. I can see how to get selected items of other controls but I see no function to get the selected row of a list view. Please advise me on how to continue. I looked for other answers on how to do this and couldnt find one that answered this question.

_GUICtrlListView_GetItem will return the information about the item at the specified index. Here's how you'd use it to find out which item is selected

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $iSelected = -1
    Local $frmExample = GUICreate("ListView Get Item", 400, 300)

    Local $lvExample = GUICtrlCreateListView("Items", 2, 2, 394, 268)
    Local $hLvExample = GUICtrlGetHandle($lvExample)
    Local $lblSelected = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Row Selected: None", 2, 275, 294)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    For $i = 1 to 10
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Row " & $i, $lvExample)
    Next

    Do
        For $i = 0 to _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($hLvExample)
            Local $aItemAttrib = _GUICtrlListView_GetItem($hLvExample, $i)
            ; Using bitand to see if the item has focus or is selected since the attribute at [0] can be a combination of values
            If (IsArray($aItemAttrib) and BitAND($aItemAttrib[0], 12)) Then
                ; Prevent the label from consntantly being updated, only updates when new item is selected
                If ($iSelected <> $i) Then
                    GUICtrlSetData($lblSelected, "Row Selected: " & $i + 1)
                    $iSelected = $i
                EndIf
                ExitLoop
            EndIf
        Next
    Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

    GUIDelete($frmExample)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

AlecSadler,

Or you can use the native commands like this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Example()

Func Example()

    Local $sSelected = "", $cSelected, $cLastSel = 0

    Local $frmExample = GUICreate("ListView Get Item", 400, 300)

    Local $lvExample = GUICtrlCreateListView("Items", 2, 2, 394, 268)
    Local $lblSelected = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Item Selected: None", 2, 275, 294)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    ; This is the ControlID just before the ListView items start - it allows us to calculate the row number
    $cStart = GUICtrlCreateDummy()

    For $i = 1 to 10
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item " & Chr($i + 64), $lvExample)
    Next

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit
        EndSwitch

        ; Get ControlID of selected row
        $cSelected = GUICtrlRead($lvExample)
        ; If a row selected and the selection has changed
        If $cSelected <> 0 And $cSelected <> $cLastSel Then
            ; Alter the label to show the row content - note requirement to strip the trailing delimiter from the return - and calculate the row number
            GUICtrlSetData($lblSelected, "Item Selected: " & StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($cSelected), 1) & " - which is in Row " & $cSelected - $cStart)
            ; Store the current selection
            $cLastSel = $cSelected
        EndIf

    WEnd

    GUIDelete($frmExample)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Note that the "dummy start" row calculation trick only works if you create all the ListView items at the same time so that they have consecutive ControlIDs - if you add/delete items then you need rather more code.
