[C#] How to Get the Selected Index and Selected Item Text in List View Control

List View class makes the life easier. It represents a Windows list view control, which displays a collection of items that can be displayed using one of four different views.

I know this is not related to Windows Tips and Tricks. But since this blog is dedicated for helping users…. I decided to write the guide.


WinGuggle 2.1 System Summary tab is using a list view control written in VB.net.





WinTinker Password Generator Web Applications Tab also uses a list view control

There is no SelectedIndex property in List View that’s why its very difficult to get the selected item text using its index.

Thankfully I found a workaround to get the selected index.

if (ListView1.SelectedItems[0].ToString().IndexOf("Audio") > 0)
    intindex = 1;  //set the index manually


Using the SelectedIndexChanged Event

private void ListViewWeb_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
     if (ListViewWeb.SelectedIndices.Count <= 0)
     int intselectedindex = ListViewWeb.SelectedIndices[0];
     if (intselectedindex >= 0)


Hope this helps!

Using GetMAC Tool to display MAC address for Network Adapters

dos3 Media Access Control (MAC) address is the computer’s physical address inside the network. This tool will help you to configure your router(s) to allow only specific computers to access the network or internet. Thanks to William for asking this question last December 16, 2009.

If your computer has more than one network adapter, the MAC address of each adapter is listed separately.

Using the tool to display the network adapters mac address


Physical Address    Transport Name
00-19-8B-DB-69-1D   \Device\Tcpip_{793CAA85-159E-4EC7-9986-FD793610261B}
00-1B-76-2D-B1-DE   Media disconnected


Other Parameters of the tool

D:\>getmac /?

GETMAC [/S system [/U username [/P [password]]]] [/FO format] [/NH] [/V]

    This tool enables an administrator to display the MAC address
    for network adapters on a system.

Parameter List:
    /S     system        Specifies the remote system to connect to.

    /U     [domain\]user  Specifies the user context under
                             which the command should execute.

    /P     [password]   Specifies the password for the given
                             user context. Prompts for input if omitted.

    /FO    format        Specifies the format in which the output
                             is to be displayed.
                             Valid values: "TABLE", "LIST", "CSV".

    /NH                      Specifies that the "Column Header" should
                               not be displayed in the output.
                               Valid only for TABLE and CSV formats.

    /V                       Specifies that verbose output is displayed.

    /?                       Displays this help message.

    GETMAC /?
    GETMAC /FO csv
    GETMAC /S system /NH /V
    GETMAC /S system /U user
    GETMAC /S system /U domain\user /P password /FO list /V
    GETMAC /S system /U domain\user /P password /FO table /NH


Anyhow, if your a windows fan and you don’t like the name, you can still use another network tool called ipconfig to get the network adapters physical address (alternative name to mac address)

C:\>ipconfig /all

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   Description . . . . . .  : Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller
   Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-19-8B-DB-69-1D
   DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
   Autoconfiguration Enabled .  . : Yes
