Who is "he"? And why are you passing the return value of
"getGeotagsByClient()" as the second argument of FXListBox.new? That should
probably be nil:

    @clientListBox = FXListBox.new(matrix, nil, 0, ...)

Since FXListBox sends SEL_COMMAND when one its items is selected, you need
to catch that message:

    @clientListBox.connect(SEL_COMMAND) do |sender, sel, data|
      # put message handling code here

and since the documentation told you that the message data is an integer
indicating the selected item's index:

    @clientListBox.connect(SEL_COMMAND) do |sender, sel, data|
      puts "item #{data} was selected"

Hope this helps,
