    Just use the selected index property:

    vb Code:
    1. If Me.ListBox1.SelectedIndex >= 0 then
    2. 'something is selected
    3. Else
    4. 'Nothing is
    5. End If

    You just need to check whether the selected index is not -1. So...

    vb Code:
    1. If Not myListbox.SelectedIndex = -1 Then
    2. 'Do something
    3. End If

    on heels of that... there's a reason that this doesn't work:
    If ListBox1.SelectedItem = True Then

    SelectedItem returns a ListViewItem ... not a boolean...

    If ListBox1.SelectedItem IsNot Nothing Then
    ...
