ListView - Autosize Height

7 posts in this topic

Hi AutoIT GUI masters!

I was wondering if you could help me out on a little challenge that I have...

I want to use a ListView that has a possible listing(items) between 0 to 30. But I wanted the form and the control to auto-adjust it's height according to the number of items in the ListView control.

Maybe this UDF, by Melba23, can help - GUIListViewEx. I don't know if this UDF has the ability to do any 'autosizing', so it's up to you to read up on it! Good luck!

Look at GuiCtrlSetPos in the help file, you can use it by adjusting the Height parameter to however many items are in your listview, while keeping the other parameters the same as when you created it.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

You can think many ways to do that, this is one of them.

#include <GuiListView.au3>
Opt("GUIResizeMode",545) ; $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT
global $n = 0
global $items[1]
$hGui = GuiCreate("AutoSize my monoscout999",-1,199)
$iButton1 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Add Item", 260,20,120,50)
$iButton2 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Delete Item", 260,100,120,50)
$iList = GuiCtrlCreateListView("Nª|Listview test|blabla",0,0,250,200)
$hList = GuiCtrlGetHandle($iList)
GuiSetState()
While True
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        case -3
            Exit
        case $iButton1
            $n += 1
            redim $items[$n]
            $items[$n-1] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($n&"|Some text|more text", $iList)
            $Height = _GUICtrlListView_ApproximateViewHeight($hList)
            $pos = wingetpos($hGui)
            If $pos[3]-27 < $Height Then
                winmove($hGui,"", $pos[0],$pos[1],$pos[2],$Height+30)
                GUICtrlSetPos($iList,0,0,250,$Height+30)
            EndIf
        case $iButton2
            If $n > 0 then
            GuiCtrldelete($items[$n-1])
            $n -= 1
            $Height = _GUICtrlListView_ApproximateViewHeight($hList)
            $pos = wingetpos($hGui)
            If $pos[3]-27 > $Height and $pos[3]-27 > 200 Then
                winmove($hGui,"", $pos[0],$pos[1],$pos[2],$Height+30)
                GUICtrlSetPos($iList,0,0,250,$Height+30)
            EndIf
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd
