Color uneven/even ListView indices?

8 posts in this topic

Hey there,

I'm loading *.mp3 files from a folder into a ListView, each row gets 1 filename, filesize and an incrementing number.

To get a better overview (and yeah, I don't want to use gridlines), I thought about coloring every uneven row, that's

what I tried at least:

Func _fillSourceView($path)
    _clearListView($hSourceView)
    $files = _FileListToArray($path, "*.mp3")
    For $i = 1 To UBound($files)-1
        If Mod($i, 2) == 0 Then
            _GUICtrlListView_SetTextBkColor($hSourceView, $CLR_WHITE)
        Else
            _GUICtrlListView_SetTextBkColor($hSourceView, $CLR_MONEYGREEN)
        EndIf
        $size = FileGetSize($path&$files[$i])
        _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($hSourceView, _properNum($i))
        _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hSourceView, $i-1, $files[$i], 1)
        _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hSourceView, $i-1, _properSize($size), 2)
    Next
    _GUICtrlButton_Enable($idReload, True)
EndFunc ;==> _fillSourceView($path)

So what I'm basically doing is changing the text's background color of uneven rows to "moneygreen", using

If Mod($i, 2) == 0 Then
            _GUICtrlListView_SetTextBkColor($hSourceView, $CLR_WHITE)
        Else
            _GUICtrlListView_SetTextBkColor($hSourceView, $CLR_MONEYGREEN)
        EndIf

Somehow it works (sometimes) for a folder with just like 6 *.mp3 files in it, but when I add one

with ~65 *.mp3 files it sets either all rows green or all rows white. Is there some function that

can directly change the color of a ListView's row?

ie: _GUICtrlListView_SetRowBkColor($hWnd, $iIndex, $iColor) to enforce $iIndex row to have $iColor

as background color?

greetings

I fill the ListView in a loop and change the color on the fly:

For $iRec = 1 to 100
 GUICtrlCreateListViewItem(value1[$irec] & "|" & value2[$irec], $hGUIUserList)
 If Mod($iRec, 2) = 0 Then GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xD0DEC7)
Next

gobsor,

If you use the built-in ListView, you can also use the built-in alternate line colour style - look for the <<<<<<<<<< lines: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hList = GUICtrlCreateListView("Col 1|Col 2|Col 3", 10, 10, 480, 480)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)
; Set up alt line colouring
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

For $i = 0 To 2
    _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth(-1, $i, 151)
Next

For $i = 0 To 29
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($i & "|" & $i & "|" & $i, $hList)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x00FF00) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Next

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Mmmh,

The example is very good,

.... but the color ...

ReFran,

.... but the color ...

But it illustrates the alternate line colour difference so nicely! :)

Personally I tend to use the default backcolour and 0xCCFFCC, probably because I was brought up on the old concertina printout paper from the mainframe - very much easier on the eye. ;)

Is there a clever hack you know of to use _GUICtrlListView_AddItem()? I had a look at CSV-Editor by Funkey to see how they accomplished it, seems a new Function was created using the native GUICtrlCreateListViewItem.

Nice example M23, thank you!

And yea, I'm using 0xF2F8FA now! Smooth color I think! ;-)
