Thanks for the quick response Justin.

First, I should mention that I am fairly new to this. With that said, here 
is what im trying to do. 
    def doubleClickedItem(self):
        """for when an item is double clicked """
        theListWidget = self.sender()
        currentItem = theListWidget.currentItem()
        currentItemText = currentItem.text()

So, the idea is that I capture the sender item and changed its color to red 
after is doublecliked. But all the documentation I can find is in c++ and 
have not come across python examples. I am sure its prob very easy to port 
those examples to python, however, i am still learning and currently 
stumped by this.
