[SOLVED] _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText


Recommended Posts

Hi all, after 2 nights cracking my head with this problem I come for professional help :D

The problem: _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText()

If I send a non variable index it works just fine

_GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($hListView, 2)

but if I get the index into a variable and then send that variable it wont work.. why??

$selectedindex = 2
_GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($hListView, $selectedindex)

the index is sent fine as variable, but for some reason when GuiListView.au3 calls

GUICtrlSendMsg($hWnd, $LVM_GETITEMTEXTW, $iIndex, $pItem)

will return 0 (no item param) :D .

Any sugestion??

this is an example code taken from the help and modified for this.

#AutoIt3Wrapper_au3check_parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

$Debug_LV = False ; Check ClassName being passed to ListView functions, set to True and use a handle to another control to see it work


Func _Main()
    Local $aItem, $bItem, $sText, $hListView, $selindex, $gmsg
    GUICreate("ListView Get Item Text Array", 400, 300)

    $hListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 2, 2, 394, 268)
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line1|data1|more1", $hListView)
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line2|data2|more2", $hListView)
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line3|data3|more3", $hListView)
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line4|data4|more4", $hListView)
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line5|data5|more5", $hListView)


    ; Get item 2 text
    ;$scindex = 2
    while 1
    $gmsg = GuiGetMsg()
    Switch $gmsg
        $selindex = _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($hListView)
        $aItem = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($hListView, $selindex)
        $bItem = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($hListView, 2)
        MsgBox(0,"", "aItem Text = " & $aItem & @LF & "Index = " & $selindex & @LF & @LF _
        & "bItem Text = " & $bItem & @LF & "Index = 2")
EndFunc   ;==>_Main

_GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices returns a string.

If you convert the index to a number then your example works fine.

$selindex = Number($selindex)

men that was easy, im so fool :D

guess I need some rest.


You might choose to use the $fArray parameter to have the function return an array of integers. If ever more than one item is selected, your return string would look like "3|7|11|16", meaning 3 items selected which are 7, 11 and 16. The string to integer conversion would return 3 in this case, which is just plain wrong. Look at the help file for details.
