    another listview question

    i have a listview with 4 columns, when i select a line and click a button, i want to add it to a listbox....but i dont know how to get the text from the selected line. ive tried listview.SelectedItems.ToString() and listview.SelectedIndices.ToString()
    both of them come up with some ListView.Selected...+object or something wierd like that

    Both of them are Collections of Items, that's why they are named with a plural 's'. Use foreach.

    foreach( ListViewItem item in yourListView.SelectedItems )
    ListBox.Add( item.Text );

    Depending on your comlumns, you may have to add another foreach here for getting all SubItems of your item to add all their text together.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
