Alternating Colors in a Listview?

Recommended Posts

JAFN

Yes, I'm back

If I have a ListView that is populated by _GUICtrlListView_AddArray instead of _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem, is it still possible to have alternating colors for the ListViews rows?

Thanks

$GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE looks like it should do what you want. But I don't know exactly how to use it just yet...


#include <ByteMe.au3>

I don't see how to use that with _GUICtrlListView_AddArray.

JAFN,

I seem to remember (from a query some time ago) that you cannot use $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE directly with _GUICtrlListView_AddArray - and the function within the #Include file was not easily modifiable to use it. The only way was to set up the ListView to use alternate colouring and then write your own function using a loop to add the items separately. :)

Give it a go and come back if you run into difficulties - but do attach a example of your array and explain how you want it displayed if you do. ;)

I will have to comeback to this. As it isn't simple there are far more pressing functions for this script. But I will return to cosmetics at some point and will post my results when successful.

As always, thank you for your time.
