Vista Style ListView Select Bar

I don't know the exact coding needed for this, but I do know you should probably use GDI+. It looks to me like there is a gradient background (slight gradient) and the icon is an overlay. The overlay can be achieved using a child window (might have to have $WS_EX_LAYERED to get the background of the pic to be transparent). Hope this gets you started.

Edit: I guess you could make the background a pic control too. Just delete the control (or better yet, hide it) when the item isn't being hovered over.

sorry for bringing this up, but I have the exactly doubt, in this topic: rover's managed to set that style on selected items, but is way complicated, so many functions and different ways to create listview that I got lost.

can somebody give a simple way of doing it? (probably is a style missing :s)


Heroes, there is no such thing

One day I'll discover what IE.au3 has of special for so many users using it.
C'mon there's InetRead and WinHTTP, way better

from the help file? so its just this line:

DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", $hListView, "wstr", "Explorer", "ptr", 0) ; Set "Vista" Style

what happens if is used on a older version of windows?

edit: GUICtrlCreateListView() cannot be used to this style?

Older than what? That DLLCall works on XP to 7 to my knowledge and probably works on desktop apps for 8. I don't have access to anything older than XP so I don't know if it would do anything on something older than that.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

The most recent theme is used (which you see in Windows Explorer too), e.g. when I run this code in my XP-VM I see the old bold blue highlighting.

edit: GUICtrlCreateListView() cannot be used to this style?

Works fine with GUICtrlCreateListView() for me too.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $listview, $button, $item1, $item2, $item3, $msg

    GUICreate("listview items", 220, 250, 100, 200, -1, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)
    GUISetBkColor(0x00E0FFFF) ; will change background color

    $listview = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1  |col2|col3  ", 10, 10, 200, 150);,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING)
    $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Value?", 75, 170, 70, 20)
    $item1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item2|col22|col23", $listview)
    $item2 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item1|col12|col13", $listview)
    $item3 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item3|col32|col33", $listview)
    GUICtrlCreateInput("", 20, 200, 150)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED) ; to allow drag and dropping

    DllCall("UxTheme.dll", "int", "SetWindowTheme", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle($listview), "wstr", "Explorer", "ptr", 0) ; Set "Vista" Style

    GUISetState()
    GUICtrlSetData($item2, "ITEM1")
    GUICtrlSetData($item3, "||COL33")
    GUICtrlDelete($item1)

    Do
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

        Select
            Case $msg = $button
                MsgBox(0, "listview item", GUICtrlRead(GUICtrlRead($listview)), 2)
            Case $msg = $listview
                MsgBox(0, "listview", "clicked=" & GUICtrlGetState($listview), 2)

older like XP (without aero)

on XP when a item is selected it appears in solid blue?
