[SOLVED] _GUICtrlListView_Create() and WM_DROPFILES

Recommended Posts

guinness

In the example below I am dropping multiple files on a ListView using _GUICtrlListView_Create() but for some reason even though the function WM_DROPFILES responds in the Console, it doesn't add the files to the ListView. But when using the in-built GUICtrlCreateListView, it works as it should. Normally when adding single files I use something like the Melba23 example. Because I like to use the ListView UDF I am hoping there is a work around? Thanks

Example taken and modified from: Here

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n

Learned something useful from this one: MSDN lies! :(

PostMessage(

(HWND) hWndControl, // handle to destination control

(UINT) WM_DROPFILES, // message ID

(WPARAM) wParam, // = (WPARAM) (HDROP) hDrop;

(LPARAM) lParam // = 0; not used, must be zero

);

The $hWnd parameter in WM_DROPFILES is the handle of the WINDOW, not the CONTROL. To ID the control, you have to get the X/Y coordinates with DragQueryPoint, and then check which control it was by POS. Note this demo has both a native and UDF listview, and they both work:
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

Global Const $WM_DROPFILES = 0x0233

ConsoleWrite("$hGUI = " & $hGUI & @LF)
$hLV_1 = _GUICtrlListView_Create($hGUI, "", 5, 5, 390, 190)

TESTED: Works :mellow:

Thanks for that. I did search the forum (scouts honour) but couldn't find anything on the subject. Just goes to show you AutoIt MVPs know what you're doing.

I try not to post answers that can easily be found by the search tool.

While this is good information, I think the error in your original code (and your learning opportunity) was not pointed out clearly. When using UDF created controls, internal AutoIt things that you would normally take advantage of (like $GUI_EVENT_DROPPED) do NOT work. The problem with your code was that you didn't have code to add items to your listview in your WM_DROPFILES function. PsaltyDS fixed that, but didn't clearly point out that's WHY your problem was fixed. If you parse the array in your original code you'll see that indeed you do have all the information you require.
