_GUICtrlListBox_ResetContent not working

7 posts in this topic

Just trying to clear a list box... and not working...

My list creation is:

$List_Values_Show = GUICtrlCreateListView("PC Name|Registry Flag", 16, 16, 477, 447)

I have a button that is tied to the following:

have tried:

_GUICtrlListBox_ResetContent($List_Values_Show)

Also tried:

GUICtrlSetData($List_Values_Show, "")

Also tried:

_GUICtrlListBox_BeginUpdate(GUICtrlGetHandle($List_Values_Show))

_GUICtrlListBox_ResetContent(GUICtrlGetHandle($List_Values_Show))

_GUICtrlListBox_EndUpdate(GUICtrlGetHandle($List_Values_Show))

The list box works, but the problem is I can't clear it when the button is pressed...

Thanks,

Terry

I guess it won't. You can't use Listbox functions on a listview control.

Makes sense, then how do you clear a list box?

Still confused? Are you working with a list box, or a list view?

How about start by reading the help file? Hint: GuiCtrlDelete() is mentioned in the help file under GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem() :mellow:

You might be able to use _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems(), but using the UDF functions on native AutoIt controls can have unpredictable effects. You should generally use UDF functions on controls you created with that UDF, i.e. _GuiCtrlListView_Create().

:P

From the code posted you are using a listview control (multi-column) so you will need to be using the GuiListView.au3 UDF and NOT the GuiList.au3 UDF.

The function you are looking for is probably _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems()

hi,

So I did get it working last week by just deleting the control and then recreating it every time I wanted a clear, found by reading the help guide...

Not sure if that's the best way though so today I tried the _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems() you suggested with the _GUICtrlListView_Create and didn't seem to work for me. Then I decided to go back and leave the GUICtrlCreateListView() and try the _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems() with that and it worked! So for me at least that was the right combination.

Thanks,

Terry

I've had problems with that _GUICtrlListView_Create() in the past so I always create it as a standard control and then use the functions from GuiListView.au3 although technicaly the old bird is correct, you shouldn't mix and match control creation.
