Example 2 in List Box help should show you how to do this. The value of
your list box should be an SCL list which contains the items in the order
selected. You may access this list without performing the _GET_VALUE_
method first, according to the example, which may be found, interestingly
enough, at the "Additional Information" hyperlink from the _GET_VALUE_ help
