Function Reference


Sets the tab-stop positions

#include <GuiListBox.au3>
_GUICtrlListBox_SetTabStops ( $hWnd, $aTabStops )


$hWnd Control ID/Handle to the control
$aTabStops Array with the following format:
    [0] - Number of tab stops in the array (n)
    [1] - First tab stop
    [2] - Second tab stop
    [n] - Nth tab stop

Return Value

Success: True.
Failure: False.


The integers in $aTabStops represent the number of quarters of the average character width for the font that is selected into the list box.
For example, a tab stop of 4 is placed at 1.0 character units, and a tab stop of 6 is placed at 1.5 average character units.
However, if the list box is part of a dialog box, the integers are in dialog template units.
The tab stops must be sorted in ascending order; backward tabs are not allowed.
