You can do something like this:

foreach listview itm yourListView.Items)
    Add in a string, its id or name or whatever

Thanks for answering but there is no such property like selected on the item of the listview ...

are you doing the same with javascript?Is should work in javascript, if you are doing this in c# then do something like this :
String strItem;
foreach(Object selecteditem in listBox1.SelectedItems)
strItem = selecteditem as String;
protected void ListBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
foreach (ListItem li in ListBox1.Items)
if (li.Selected)
Label1.Text = li.Text.ToString();

label1 will display the selected item
Assume the ListBox selection mode is MultiSimple or MultiExtended: otherwise, of course, this makes no sense :)

Define a new SelectedObjectCollection, then initialize it in your Form Load Event:
private ListBox.SelectedObjectCollection ListBoxSelections;

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // initialize it here because prior to Form Load
    // a reference to the instance of listBox1 does
    // not exist to pass as a parameter

    // why initialize it ?
    // so we don't have to check if it's == null
    // when no items are selected and we want to
    // do something like access the 'Count property
    ListBoxSelections = new ListBox.SelectedObjectCollection(listBox1);
Then, 'wire-up' the SelectedIndexChanged Event to your ListBox:
private void listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    ListBoxSelections = listBox1.SelectedItems;
And now any time you need to do whatever with the selected items in the ListBox, you can just use 'ListBoxSelections: if its 'Count property == #0, you know there are no current items selected.
// Loop through all items the ListBox.
   for (int x = 0; x < listBox1.Items.Count; x++)
      // Determine if the item is selected.
      if(listBox1.GetSelected(x) == true)
         // Deselect all items that are selected.
         // Select all items that are not selected.

an unexplained code dump to such an OLD POST isn't going to help much.
