keep on bottom of list

12 posts in this topic

I have a list control. In it are 3 things (say apples, peaches, oranges, zukini). The list will show

apples

oranges

peaches

zukini

If I want to make one of the things (say oranges) on top, I can add a "!" in front of it, and I would get

!oranges

apples

peaches

zukini

What can I add in front of it to make it bottom? What can I put on the front of it that will make it come after z?

zz comes after z. Add z to all and then add zz to the one you want last. Z to the Nth + 1 comes after Z to the Nth

or you could go with "{" or any other character with a greater ascii value than Z i believe, even unprintable characters that may save you a function call to strip the character.

What method of sorting are we talking about? It may not be relevant, but when do an _ArraySort(), letters come after the brackets, braces, etc. I don't know enough about how the sorting work's, but if it's like in Windows Explorer, those symbols come before letters. Please explain for (my) future reference. Example:
#include <Array.au3>
Local $Array[11] = ["z", ' ', "(", ")", "[", "}", "]", "{", "a", "Z", "g"]
Local $Letter[11][2]
For $i = 0 to 10
    $Letter[$i][0] = $Array[$i]
    $Letter[$i][1] = $i & ' original position'
Next
_ArraySort($Letter)
If Not @error Then
    _ArrayDisplayEx($Letter)
    Exit
EndIF

Hi,

Another way to keep an item at the desired position in the list...

Remove the default $LBS_SORT style from the list and fill the list in the order you want.

I know it's not what was asked, but just thinking outside the list, err.. I mean box

Cheers

It's what you do inside the box that counts...

I am currently applying z to the beginning, but I was hoping there was a way to turn sorting off, or to set something to the bottom. Something more elegant then a z.

~ (tilde) or Chr(127) which is the delete symbol should do it.

In either case, first or last, I suggest unprintable characters will be best.

Edit: Braindead moment. Whats wrong with setting the style to BitOr($WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL). Leaving out the $LBS_SORT should allow you to keep the order you set.
