Here's an article, that shows how to use the Click event, a MessageBox can then be used to display the Listview.SelectedItem

Try :

Private Sub ListView1_Click()
    Dim a, b, c, d As String
    Dim index As Integer

    index = ListView1.SelectedItem.index

    a = ListView1.ListItems(index).Text
    b = ListView1.ListItems(index).SubItems(1)
    c = ListView1.ListItems(index).SubItems(2)
    d = ListView1.ListItems(index).SubItems(3)

    'Set textboxes in form2 with value from listview
    Form2.Text1.Text = a
    Form2.Text2.Text = b
    Form2.Text3.Text = c
    Form2.Text4.Text = d

End Sub
