How to GetText on the third column of a treeview?

9 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'm trying to extract the text from a treeview that contains several columns:

I'm already successfully retrieving the 4 letter airport code using this line of code:

$apt = ControlTreeView ( "JeppView", "", "[CLASS:SysTreeView32; INSTANCE:2]", "GetText", "#1")
$apt = LeftString($apt, 4)

I am however unable to obtain the text in the column to the right with the full name of the airport. So for YABA I would like to retrieve "ALBANY". That does not seem to be part of the treeview though, or if it is, I have no clue how to access it?

When using the window info tool, the entire surface showing airport lists comes up as one square, the SysTreeView32 class I use above to get the 4 letter code.

Can anyone provide ideas on how to get to the text next to it? The titlebar of the treeview/listview seems to be its own class, a SysHeader32, maybe that's the way to access the listing to the right?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Cheers

First of all, LeftString() isn't a function. Second of all, that's a ListView, not a TreeView.


For those who are asking questions, look in the help file first. I'm tired of people asking stupid questions about how to do things when 10 seconds in the help file could solve their problem.[quote name='JRowe' date='24 January 2010 - 05:58 PM' timestamp='1264381100' post='766337'][quote name='beerman' date='24 January 2010 - 03:28 PM' timestamp='1264372082' post='766300']They already have a punishment system for abuse.[/quote]... and his his name is Valik.[/quote]www.minikori.com

This question is not about string functions or other trivialities. Your response lacks precision, let alone respect. If you take the effort to respond why not try to be helpful?

Back to the topic:

Both Spy++ and Autoit's Window Info tool return a very clear SysTreeView class information for the control in question. It's not a listview. Unless they subclassed a treeview and added some private behaviour to it that's not readily exposed.

1) I was trying to help

2) Your reply had less respect than mine.

I can see now that it's a tree view with multiple columns, so it threw me off. Could you link me to the program so I can look more into it?

I'm sorry but I can't redistribute that program for licensing reasons. Maybe the following screenshot helps:

Note that in Spy++, the SysTreeView32 that is highlighted is the one it finds when dropping the target inside the square of the treeview. It looks as if it's subclassed from another treeview, along with a SysHeader?

Thanks for looking into this!

Actually I'd just like a screenshot of the program with one of the trees open.

Like this? Note that the fields to the right (the part of the listview I am trying to fetch) is populated with info for each of the opened tree items.

I don't think standard treeviews can have more than one column, so that is probably a custom component which would make your task difficult.
