Default Help 'Check ListView' vs 'Check ListBox'

Hi all,

I am coding window forms in C#.

My problem is this: I have created a "Check ListView" or a 'ListView' with checkbox's. I have populated the it with my files from my folders, mps, txt, etc. The ListView is in Details, with headers and an Icon.

What I am trying to accomplish is to rename/append check mark file massively (at once). This is accomplished by the user inputting a name into a provided textbox 'txtBoxFileConversion' and by the user clicking on the 'convert button'. The directory/folder is then updated with the new file(s) and so is the ListView.

I am having problems with my 'convert button' syntax where the data that is being extracted, the output, comes out like this: ListViewItem: (webhosting.txt}, instead of the plain: webhosting.txt. Also what format is the ListView data in? I know with regular CheckListBox's, it is in a string format.

Now when I use CheckListBox (with basically the same code (string instead of ListViewItem)), I receive no problems or errors at all, but I do prefer to use ListView to keep with the order of my other ListViews on the same form, and because I also want to use the headers, icons, same sizing, etc. Is my thinking wrong on this? The sample of my button function is below: //Append (Convert) checkbox selected items with new name:

private void btnConvert_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    { //Test to see if the textbox is blank
        if(this.txtBoxFileConversion.Text != "")
        { //Extract all check-marked items
            foreach(ListViewItem myItems in this.lvMassFileConversion.CheckedItems)
                string myItem = myItems.ToString();
                string myItem2 = this.txtBoxFileConversion.Text + " - " + myItems.ToString();
                //Over-write old file with new file
                File.Move(Path.Combine(currentFolderPath, myItems),
                Path.Combine(currentFolderPath, myItems2));
            MessageBox.Show("Please enter valid text into the textbox

I've been reading past posts of ListViews, but I don't think anything covers this topic on ListView. Any and all help, suggestions are truly appreciated.

I was given a solution to what I was exactly looking for from a gentleman on another board. It is as follows.

  string myItem = myItems.Text;

Instead of:
  string myItem = myItems.ToString();
