Treeview Child, automatically checking its Parents

19 posts in this topic

Good afternoon, I am new to AutoIt and the forums so, hello :graduated:

I have been looking through your website and the wiki site for a few days now to try and solve an problem i'm facing. I am using a TreeView control with check boxes and would like to make it so when a user clicks on a child, its parent, and parent's parent etc are also ticked if not already.

I have discovered similar postings on here but with my bad knowledge of the area, i couldn't understand the solutions given (notably post, though this is primarily focused on a select all type action, it performs the same action i want to achieve).

My confusion is with the arrays. I create the items in my TreeView manually (included below) and so don't understand how to apply the same "checks" for the items state when i can't step through the items in an array.

$winGUI = GUICreate("Food_Drink", $width, $height, $x, $y)
$tvItems = GUICtrlCreateTreeView(8, 16, 241, 305, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_TREEVIEW, $TVS_CHECKBOXES), _
    $WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME+$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$Food = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Food", $tvItems)
$Fruit = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Fruit", $Food)
$Apple = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Apple", $Fruit)
$Meat = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Meat", $Food)
$Steak = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Steak", $Meat)
$Chicken = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Chicken", $Meat)
$Dairy = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Dairy", $Food)
$Cheese = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Cheese", $Dairy)
$Drink = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Drinks", $tvItems)
$Water = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Water", $Drink)
$Fizzy = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Fizzy", $Drink)
$Cola = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Cola", $Fizzy)
$Juice = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Juice", $Drink)
$OrangeJuice = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("OrangeJuice", $Juice)
$HotDrink = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Hot Drinks", $Drink)
$Tea = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Tea", $HotDrink)
$Coffee = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Coffee", $HotDrink)

Ultimately, clicking on the "Coffee" checkbox should also check "Hot Drink" and "Drink".

Thank you for your time in reading this and i'm sorry it's probably confusing as hell. I've been hitting my head against a wall for a while!

Regards, NDW (novice scripter)

ndw,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :graduated:

No need for arrays (although you should learn about them in due course :)) - just keep running back up the tree to look for parents to check:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiTreeView.au3>

$winGUI = GUICreate("Food_Drink", 500, 500)

$tvItems = GUICtrlCreateTreeView(8, 16, 241, 305, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_TREEVIEW, $TVS_CHECKBOXES), _
    $WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME+$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
    $hTV = GUICtrlGetHandle(-1) ; Get handle of the control - works better in the UDF commands used later on
$Food = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Food", $tvItems)
$Fruit = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Fruit", $Food)
$Apple = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Apple", $Fruit)
$Meat = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Meat", $Food)
$Steak = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Steak", $Meat)
$Chicken = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Chicken", $Meat)
$Dairy = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Dairy", $Food)
$Cheese = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Cheese", $Dairy)
$Drink = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Drinks", $tvItems)
$Water = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Water", $Drink)
$Fizzy = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Fizzy", $Drink)
$Cola = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Cola", $Fizzy)
$Juice = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Juice", $Drink)
$OrangeJuice = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("OrangeJuice", $Juice)
$HotDrink = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Hot Drinks", $Drink)
$Tea = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Tea", $HotDrink)
$Coffee = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Coffee", $HotDrink)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    ; Get selected item
    $hSelected = _GUICtrlTreeView_GetSelection($hTV)
    ; Is it checked?
    If _GUICtrlTreeView_GetChecked($hTV, $hSelected) Then
        ; If so check its parent
        _Check_Parents($hSelected)
    EndIf

WEnd

Func _Check_Parents($hHandle)

    ; Get the handle of the parent
    $hParent = _GUICtrlTreeView_GetParentHandle($hTV, $hHandle)
    ; If there is no parent
    If $hParent = 0 Then
        Return
    EndIf
    ; Check the parent
    _GUICtrlTreeView_SetChecked($hTV, $hParent)
    ; And look for the grandparent and so on
    _Check_Parents($hParent)

EndFunc

All clear? Please ask if not. ;)

Hello Melba, this works perfectly and thank you for taking the time to help. I have another question to trouble you though, so i understand it all!

You use a handle for the treeView using "$hTV = GUICtrlGetHandle(-1)", what is the -1 for?

ndw,

When used in this contect, -1 is shorthand for "the last control created". :graduated:

Ah ha, so if you were to have made the handle someplace else, you would have put "$hTV = GUICtrlGetHandle($tvItems)" in its place? I'm sorry for the terribly newbie questions, but i understand it now and want to say thank you again :graduated: Now to work on a Select All function but have an idea how to go about it!

One final question, i'm making a reverse of the function where if you uncheck the parent, it's children all untick, but looking at the GUITree UDFs, there doesn't seem to be "a _GUICtrlTreeView_GetChildHandle" like the "_GUICtrlTreeView_GetParentHandle". Is this just me being silly or will i have to this another way?

Exactly! :graduated:

Now to work on a Select All function

I hope you are looking at arrays - here is a good tutorial to get you started. ;)

Thank you again and i've swapped everything over to an array now and the Select All is working great :graduated:

I did a double post most likely when you were replying to one of my many questions. It's regarding being able to get the handle of a child. What i'm wanting to do is, using my first example, if i uncheck "Drink", it will go through and uncheck everything underneath it. I was going to do this using a similar function to the one you provided, but use it to step through the children and uncheck. I found there isn't a "_GUICtrlTreeView_GetChildHandle" and i ran in to some problems when looking for the "uncheck" action in the GUIGetMsg loop that cause it to loop itself in to an error.

Again, sorry for my novice-ness!

I found there isn't a "_GUICtrlTreeView_GetChildHandle"

Someone did not look very hard! ;)

_GUICtrlTreeView_GetFirstChild - Retrieves the first child item of the specified item

Success: The handle of the first child item

But it is a bit more complex to uncheck than to check as you can see:

Morning M23,

I've been sat playing with this for a while now and i can't get it to work i'm sad to say. I understand what it's doing but i've hit a problem. Theres nothing wrong with what you've wrote above but i've been using the idea and writing what i want to happen in to my own script. The problem comes from this:

; Has it changed - we only need to get the index if it has
  If $hSelected <> $hLastSelected Then
   ; Get index of the newly selected item
   $iSelectedIndex = _ArraySearch($ItemsArray, $hSelected)
   ; And save new selection
   $hLastSelected = $hSelected
  EndIf

The $iSelectedIndex seems to be -1 for me which when it reaches the IF comparison line, falls over. I'm guessing a result of -1 means it didn't find what it was looking for in the Array it searched?

I must admit, i've done something different but i don't see how it would cause this problem. Where you have used variables for each entry in to the treeview, i have used an array of [x][3] and then done the following (this is because i didn't want to 'local' loads of variables i didn't plan on using after):

$tvItems= GUICtrlCreateTreeView(8, 16, 241, 305, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_TREEVIEW, $TVS_CHECKBOXES), _
    $WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME+$WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
    $hTV = GUICtrlGetHandle(-1)
 
    $ItemsArray[1][2] = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Food", $tvItems)
    $ItemsArray[1][0] = GuiCtrlGetHandle($ItemsArray[1][2])
    $ItemsArray[2][2] = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Drink", $tvItems)
    $ItemsArray[2][0] = GuiCtrlGetHandle($ItemsArray[2][2])
    $ItemsArray[3][2] = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Meat", $ItemsArray[1][2])
    $ItemsArray[3][0] = GuiCtrlGetHandle($ItemsArray[3][2])

Nothing else talks to the [x][2] part of the array so i don't see how it would cause an issue. In case it's an issue with where i declare variables (Because i'm using a MessageLoop function rather than the mainline of the code. The mainline just calls MessageLoop) i've placed all the ones involved as globals but that doesn't change the result.

I think the more i type the more i confuse the situation so, if you want more information i can provide it! I'm just fustrating myself cause i can't understand why it wouldn't find something in the array when i've done a messagebox to output the numbers of $hSelected and $hLastSelected and they come back with, what look like meaningful memory locations.

I was tempted to put everything in the same array yesterday, but I thought it would confuse the issue! :)

*facepalm* I've found it. Before hand i'd got the select all to work through "$selectAll = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("Select all", $tvTests)" with some script somewhere to handle it. I didn't remove this statement so when it went looking through the array, shock horror, it couldn't find a "Select All" and therefore output the -1. I knew it would be something stupid!

The whole thing works perfectly now with a select all, clear all, check with parents and uncheck children. Thank you very much for your help and i hope this thread helps others in the future :graduated:

Hello, just a small update on this. I discovered a problem if i was to hit "Set All" right at the beginning then try and untick a parent. This does not untick the children the first time. I fixed this by adding the following to the Set All function.

Func _Set_All($fState = True) ; This means that the value is True unless we set it otherwise when we call the function
    ; Loop through the array and set the checkboxes
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aItems) - 1
        _GUICtrlTreeView_SetChecked($hTV, $aItems[$i][0], $fState)
        $aItems[$i][1] = $fState ; This goes through the awway and sets the checked value
    Next
EndFunc

There is also another tiny thing where Set All doesn't tick the first item. I fixed this by changing the For loop to start from 0.

Hello,

Thanks for the code. It works from child to parent - but I would like to have the "child check boxes" checked at the same time the "parent" is checked and also have the "child boxes" unchecked at the same time the parent is unchecked. In other words just checking and unchecking the parent.

Thanks

jreedmx,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums. :)

We normally expect you to make some effort as we tend not to produce code to order. Think of the old saying: "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; give a man a net and you feed him forever" - we try to be net makers and repairers, not fishmongers. ;)

But as this old code of mine can be improved enormously, I will see what I can do. However, as we have 40-odd guests arriving for "galette des rois" this afternoon, I suggest that you do not hold your breath! :D
