Not sorting a list

Recommended Posts


Hi there, I created a list with a list of different classrooms, here's a bit of the code:

$mylist = GUICtrlCreateList("", 30, 40, 120, 283)    
    GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 200)    
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Classroom 118 W")
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Classroom 107 W")
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Classroom 105 W")

When I use GuiCtrlSetData, I've been putting them in the order I want them to appear on the list. However, it's been automatically sorting them alphabetically (and thus numerically, since only the numbers are different). Is there any way around this? I really need them to be in a certain order, and the sorting somewhat ruins that :x If anyone could help or point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated!

The deafault styles for a List control are $LBS_SORT, $WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL. So if you want an unsorted list, you need to remove the $LBS_SORT style.

The easiest way to do this is to create the List control without it: :x

$mylist = GUICtrlCreateList("", 30, 40, 120, 283, BitOR($WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))

I recommend reading the Setting Styles tutorial in the Wiki for more information on how styles work - and why you shoudl use BitOR to combine them. :P
