ListView Properties- I set MultiSelect to False, LabelEdit to true,FullRowSelect to True. I have Listview with two columns.

1) When I select onw row in listview,On button click i want to get the index of selected row. I m getting it but using for loop,I want to know is there a way to know the index of selected row,Without using the for loop.

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim lCount As Integer
        If ListView1.SelectedItems.Count > 0 Then
            For lCount = 0 To ListView1.Items.Count - 1
                If ListView1.Items(lCount).Selected Then
                    MsgBox(lCount.ToString)
                End If
                Application.DoEvents()
            Next
        End If
    End Sub

2) On Listview, double click,i want to edit the items of listview.

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim lCount As Integer
        Dim lvitem As ListViewItem

        For lCount = 1 To 3
            lvitem = ListView1.Items.Add(lCount)
            lvitem.SubItems.Add("ritu" & lCount)
            Application.DoEvents()
        Next
    End Sub

    Private Sub ListView1_MouseDoubleClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles ListView1.MouseDoubleClick
        ListView1.SelectedItems(0).BeginEdit()
    End Sub

When we double click on first row, 1 comes to edit mode, i want to know i want that second column text comes to edit mode..
So i write

ListView1.SelectedItems(1).BeginEdit()

But Error is there- InvalidArgument=Value of '1' is not valid for 'index'.
Parameter name: index

Can somebody tell me how to edit the second column text.

ListView1.SelectedItems(1).BeginEdit() cant worrk out. You have multiselect set to false so there is always only one item selected. so it have to stick on 0.
remember ListView1.SelectedItems(1) doesnt mean its the next item in list, its the next selected item (which doesnt exist on multiselect=False)

1) since multiselect is false
listview1.selecteditems(1) is not possible
it has to be listview1.selecteditem(0)
since u want a particular column add another parameter.
listview1.selecteditem(0)(1)
this should fetch the second row.
this is just like a 2 dimensional array or a matrix.
first parameter is the row and the second parameter is the column
