ListView Help

Recommended Posts


So im trying to get the text of an item in a listview control, and I use this code:

MsgBox(0, "Test", _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($VideoList)) ;//Returns 0 if the first item in the list view control is selected
  MsgBox(0, "Test", _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($VideoList, 0)) ;// Returns the text of the first item in the list view control
  MsgBox(0, "Test", _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($VideoList, _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($VideoList))) ;// Returns nothing????

The last line returns nothing and I have no idea why?

Hi, few ways to solve it..

If your Listview is created with autoit internal function GuiCtrlCreateListView() then you can do either or both of the following.

1) Get and use the handle of the GuiCtrlCreateListView() instead of passing a Control ID eg: $hVideoList = GUICtrlGetHandle($VideoList)

2) When passing _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($VideoList) make it an Int value eg: Int(_GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($VideoList))

so your code could be:

$hVideoList = GUICtrlGetHandle($VideoList)
MsgBox(0, "Test", _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($hVideoList, _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($hVideoList)))
MsgBox(0, "Test", _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($VideoList, Int(_GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($VideoList))))
$hVideoList = GUICtrlGetHandle($VideoList)
MsgBox(0, "Test", _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($hVideoList, Int(_GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($hVideoList))))

Also if your using a multi select listview, then you could use _GUICtrlListView_GetNextItem() instead of _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices().

This way your sure to get an Int value.

With _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices() it can return a string of delimited Int values eg: eg: "0|1|2|3".. which is not a true Int.
