_GUICtrlListView_Create on Tabs

7 posts in this topic

I am trying to get a listview box to work on a tab control. I have spent some time checking the forums, and from what I can tell, the UDF version I am using does not "play nice" with the control. I read where the native versions can be managed by the control. I was trying that first, but was unable to get the specific subitems after hours of trying (need to read them to update a database). So, I figured I would use the UDF version of the listview and "manage" the controls myself. My problem is that I was unable to hide the listview using either guictrlsetstate or winsetstate (suggested in another post). The control still shows "through" each of the tabs. Is there a way to actually hide a listview (UDF version) that resides on a tab control?

Did you try creating the ListView with GUICtrlCreateListView and then use the UDF functions with this ListView? Or could you show us a sample script?

Reaper HGN,

The Tabs tutorial in the Wiki shows you how to manage UDF controls on tabs. :unsure:

I was trying to put together the sample code for funkey when I saw Melba's reply. Controlhide <-- that is the answer. Thank you Melba. It looks like it will work perfectly. I didnt even know there was a wiki. I will include that in my searches in the future.

Thanks again!

Reaper HGN,

You can thank rover for the ControlHide/Show idea - my initial tutorial code just showed how bad the problem was using other solutions! :unsure:

This thread seems close enough in subject, and recent enough, to not bother creating a new one.

Additional grief with a listview within a tab control:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
;#include <GuiTab.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("", 430, 330, 80,80)
;$hTab = _GUICtrlTab_Create($GUI, 5, 5, 420, 320)
;_GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($hTab, 0, "A tab control")
$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(5, 5, 420, 320)
$tab0 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("A tab control")
$hListView = _GUICtrlListView_Create($GUI, "", 12, 32, 390, 260)
;_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hListView, $LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER)
_GUICtrlListView_InsertColumn($hListView, 0, "A listview control", 380)
_GUICtrlListView_AddItem($hListView, "Minimize, then restore this window", 0)
For $x = 1 to 5
    _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($hListView, "line " & $x & "................................", $x)
Next
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
GUISetState()
_GUICtrlListView_ClickItem($hListView, 3, "left")

;_GUICtrlListView_SetItem($hListView, "Launch, position, then exit notepad...", 0)
;Sleep(2000)
;ShellExecute("notepad.exe")
;ProcessWait("notepad.exe")
;WinMove("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 140, 195)
;Sleep(5000)
;ProcessClose("notepad.exe")

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
GUIDelete()

If you minimize, then restore this script, the listview does not repaint.

Similar results exhibit if you place another window on top of the listview, and then close the other window.

The portion of the listview underneath is also erased with the top-most window. The commented out section of code simulates this alternate avenue of displaying the tab/listview redraw issues.

Would anyone have a suggestion?

I've tried tinkering with a WM_NOTIFY message-handling routine and so far have had no luck.

There's nothing wrong with that script on my machine, Win7 Enterprise x86. The Listview displays just fine whether or not I minimize or cover it with another window. I've seen reports like this where it's the video driver on the machine, or just the computer it's being run on is having issues.
