The selected item number. The index is zero-based.


If no item is selected, ListIndex returns -1. If the ListBox is in multiple-row selection mode, then the number of the lowest selected row is returned. For example, if rows 1, 3, and 4 are selected, ListIndex returns 1.

You can put the ListBox into multiple-row selection mode by changing the RowSelectionType property.

Sample code

The following code in the Change event handler displays the text in the first column of the selected row:

If Me.ListIndex >= 0 Then
  MsgBox(Me.Cell(Me.ListIndex, 0))
End If
