special character

I would like to know how to place the symbol √ in a column on GUICtrlCreateListView

As an item or as the column header?

As an item in the first column and the 2nd Row

local $width = 400
local $height = 400
$mylist = GUICtrlCreateListView("column 1 |column 2 |column 3 ", 0, 0, $width, $height)
$item1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("col1|col2|col3", $mylist)
$item1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("√ |col2|col3", $mylist)

As column header in the third column example:

local $width = 400
local $height = 400
$mylist = GUICtrlCreateListView("column 1 |column 2 |√ ", 0, 0, $width, $height)

You can use unicode characters to display it:


MsgBox(0, "Unicode", ChrW(8730))

A table can be found here: http://www.homepage-total.de/html/unicode-tabelle.php

You also could set the font used to paint the Listview manually to Wingdings by hooking in the WM_NOTIFY $NM_CUSTOMDRAW sequence.

Added #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=n because there seems to be something wrong in the structures which makes it fail on x64 ($tagNMLVCUSTOMDRAW wrong?).
