Here is a simple project method that returns the text of the selected list item as the function result.

 ` Method: Get_SelectedListItemText
C_LONGINT($1)  ` List Reference Number
C_LONGINT($listpos;$listpos;$itemRef;$subList)
C_TEXT($0;$itemText)
C_BOOLEAN($expand)
$listpos:=Selected list item($1)
GET LIST ITEM($1;$listpos;$itemRef;$itemText;$subList;$expand)
