Piecing together variables in to one variable

3 posts in this topic

So lets say I have two variables, one is a name, and one is a number.

so string and integer, now I want to be able to use these two variables as a row in a list view item.

The best way I have found to do this is using one variable in the list view item.

So basically I have a variable containing a string like "chris" and then i have another variable containing lets say the number 5, I need to put these in to one variable containing a string that says "chris|5" so I can use it in a list view item, because I have not found a way to use two variables in a list view item. Any help would be appreciated.

All you'd need to do is this

Dim $sChris = "Chris"
Dim $iFive = 5
Dim $String = $sChris & "|" & $iFive
MsgBox(0,"String", $String)

To add it as a listview item you'd do this

GuiCtrlCreateListviewItem($hListview, $String)

This assumes that you have created your listview and the handle to that list view is contained in $hListView.
