    If it's a listview you can use the subitems[n].Text property. Otherwise see which items are checked (I believe theres a checkedItems property for listview and listbox), and then split the string on a " ".

            char[] toSplit ={ ' ' };
            string[] words = kisi_name.Split(toSplit);

    Split contains an overload for a single char or a string to match against. So you could more clearly write:

    Code:
    kisi_name.Split(" ");
    Also SelectedItem doesn't mean checked if I remember right. For instance a user could check some item then select another item. If by checked you just mean "selected/highlighted" then what you are doing is correct. There is checked property though on the item.
