    here is my listview

     <telerik:RadAjaxPanel ID="RadAjaxPanel1" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadTextBox ID="txtDSTableLike" runat="server" EmptyMessage="Table Like" OnTextChanged="txtDSTableLike_TextChanged"></telerik:RadTextBox>
                                    <div class="table-selection-list">
                                        <div id="content_1_1" class="contents_1">
                                            <telerik:RadListView ID="lvDSTableSelection" runat="server" AllowMultiItemSelection="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="lvDSTableSelection_SelectedIndexChanged" autopostback="false">

                                                    <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" CssClass="selectedButtons" runat="server" CommandName="Select" Font-Underline="false">
                                                    <p ><%# Container.DataItem %></p></asp:LinkButton>
                                                <SelectedItemTemplate >
                                                    <p ><%# Container.DataItem %></p>

    First of all Icall this function and SelectedItems returns selected data perfectly

            protected void lvDSTableSelection_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)

                orcl.Owner = ddDSSchema.SelectedText;
                orcl.TableName = lvDSTableSelection.SelectedItems[0].DataItem.ToString(); --> returns selected data perfectly
                var result = client.GetColumnNames(orcl);

                lbDSNominal.DataSource = result.Data;

    after I call above function, I call this function but now SelectedItems  return null

     protected void btnNext_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

                developmentSample.TableName = lvDSTableSelection.SelectedItems[0].DataItem.ToString(); --> return null at selected item

    how can I fix it? Why am I losting selecteditem ?

    Hi Baris,

    If you have defined the values that you would like to extract from a selected item you could use SelectedValue or SelectedValues methods. Also you could access a value if a selected item using GetDataKeyValue() method.

    Different approaches on how to extract values from a selected item in RadListView are described in this article. Try using one of the approaches listed there and you should achieve the functionality you are looking for. There is also an online demo on selecting items in RadListView available here.
