List View help

Recommended Posts

I need some help, I have cobbled together a little script that scans a directory and makes a array of the subdirectories.

My goal it to present a list of the sub dirs it found and let the user select one for back-up

I am using the help example of Listview to display the array - but Im having some issues.

1- when the selectio is made, "Backup selected" btn is pressed, the msgbox has a " | " after ever directory name, where is that coming from?

2- I dont know how to dynamically create the listview items for every sub directory found - since the number changes when a subdir is created or deleted - any suggestion there?

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

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

;List of all sub-directories   in dir cmd -add /S for full path
Local $sSortedDir = StringStripWS(_GetDOSOutput('dir "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3" /A:-A /B /O:N'), 3)
;ConsoleWrite(_GetDOSOutput('dir /?') & @CRLF) ; Dir help
ConsoleWrite($sSortedDir & @CRLF)

Local $ListDirs = StringSplit($sSortedDir, @CRLF, 3);Change string of sub-directories into an array of sub-directories.
Local $DirCount = _ArrayMaxIndex($ListDirs, 0,1) ; get the number of directories found,* NOTE* array starting at zero



Func Example()
    Local  $msg

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

    Local $listview = GUICtrlCreateListView("Folders found ", 10, 10, 200, 150);,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING)
    Local $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Backup Selected?", 10, 170, 150, 20)
    Local $item1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[0], $listview)
    Local $item2 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[1], $listview)
    Local $item3 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[2], $listview)
    Local $item4 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[3], $listview)
    Local $item5 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[4], $listview)
    Local $item6 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[5], $listview)
    ;Local $item7 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[6], $listview)
    ;Local $item8 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[7], $listview)
    ;Local $item9 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ListDirs[8], $listview)
    ;Local $input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 20, 200, 150)
    ;GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)   ; to allow drag and dropping
    ;GUICtrlSetData($item2, $ListDirs[0])
    ;GUICtrlSetData($item3, "||COL33")

        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

            Case $msg = $button
                MsgBox(0, "listview item", GUICtrlRead(GUICtrlRead($listview)), 2)
            Case $msg = $listview
                MsgBox(0, "listview", "clicked=" & GUICtrlGetState($listview), 2)
    Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Func _GetDOSOutput($command)
    Local $text = '', $Pid = Run('"' & @ComSpec & '" /c ' & $command, '', @SW_HIDE, 2 + 4)
    While 1
        $text &= StdoutRead($Pid, False, False)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
    Return $text
EndFunc ;==>_GetDOSOutput

Use _FileListToArray() to get a list of subdirectories in an array, then just loop through the array to add items to the ListView.

The pipe "|" symbol is just a delimiter for multiple columns selected. You can StringSplit() the selections to an array.

More advanced functions are available as _GuiCtrlListView_* UDFs, but if you use those then use the UDFs to create and populate the ListView also. Strange behavior ensues if you create the control with the native functions, then modify them with the UDFs.
