Need help with GUICtrlCreateListView

9 posts in this topic

Well, I'm working on a playlist function and I need to select the next song in the list.

The current way i use:

$read=GUICtrlRead(GUICtrlRead($playlist))

$string=StringSplit($read, "|")

$currentsong = _GUICtrlListView_FindText($playlist, $string[1])

Func nextsong()

$nextsong=$currentsong+1

_GUICtrlListView_ClickItem($playlist, $nextsong)

play()

EndFunc

But this way seems to need the player as active window or well visible atleast, tried using the player while being in fullscreen in a game and it just started playing the song i already heard.

ideas anyone?

AdamSwe,

ideas anyone?

Why not store the list as an array? Then if the GUI is visible you can fill the ListView from the array and action it to select the next song - if the window is hidden then you can action the array directly. ;)

Hmm, can you give an example?

And i kinda prefer the way i have it atm since the player works great aslong as the window is visible, i just wish you could make the _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem($playlist, $nextsong) like a controlclick

Not a hope! :)

You want the script, you write it! I am quite prepared to help when you run into difficulties but I am not writing the code for you. ;)

AdamSwe,

A very good tutorial on Arrays to be found in the Wiki. Is that enough of a push to be getting on with? :)

Seriously, give it a go yourself - you know where we are if you get stuck. ;)

Check out the media player that I wrote, it's linked in my signature. In this player it uses a next/previous function to skip to the next song or the previous one. It will also play the next song in the listview when the previous song ends. The player doesn't need to be visible to work correctly because I manipulate the selection by using the currently selected item and then just incrementing it by 1. The functions to look at in my script are called Previous and Next1 (kind of easy to figure out why.)

You might also notice that you can sort the playlist by any of the column headings and then the listview will get rebuilt so that the next/previous functions will still work. The function that rebuilds the LV is called surprisingly, rebuildlv.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
