State of the Listview

Recommended Posts


maybe I see something obvious not, but the Remark of GUICtrlGetState:


For ListView controls it returns the number of the clicked column.

Leaves me with the question how to detect the State of the Listview?

For example if a listview was hidden with GUICtrlSetState, how can I detect if it is hidden or not?

Use WinGetState with the ListView handle to determine the state. ;)

Press the button while the ListView is visible and then after 5 secs when it is hidden:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

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

$hLV = GUICtrlCreateListView("Col 1|Col2", 10, 10, 200, 200)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("State", 10, 300, 80, 30)


$iBegin = TimerInit()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $hButton
            $iState = WinGetState(GUICtrlGetHandle($hLV))
            If BitAnd($iState, 2) Then
                ConsoleWrite("ListView visible" & @CRLF)
                ConsoleWrite("ListView hidden" & @CRLF)

    If TimerDiff($iBegin) > 5000 Then
        GUICtrlSetState($hLV, $GUI_HIDE)

Al clear? :)
