how to get handle for GUICtrlCreateListViewItem

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have hundreds of GUICtrlCreateListViewItem's create in my guictrlcreatelistview

how do i get the handle of a selected one by pressing a button on GUI ?

I searched forum and found that there is no way, but i think maybe that post was old

and new autoit does have that feature.

please help

I tried

$GetHandleForSelectedItem = GUICtrlGetHandle(GUICtrlGetHandle($results))

MsgBox(0,'',$GetHandleForSelectedItem)

returns 0

$results is the guictrlcreatelistview

Reason why i tried this approach is because

Guictrlread (Guictrlread($results)) returns string from selected guictrlcreatelistviewitem

GUIGetHandle doesnt support list view items. You should get the control handle of the list item when it is created like so:

$ControlID = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem

Why do you need handle?

What do you want to do with ListView items?

There are UDF & API functions for working with ListView items covering all needs.

i want to delete or possible update selected item, thats all

$ControlID = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem is not possible, there are hundreds of them created and i dont know how to assign a variable to each one.

You could use an array when creating the items to hold all of the control ids.

Look at

_GUICtrlListView_GetNextItem() - returns index of selected item

_GUICtrlListView_SetItemText() - Changes the text of an item or subitem - based on item index

_GUICtrlListView_DeleteItem()

Man i tried

_GUICtrlListView_GetHotItem

_GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected

and everything but _GUICtrlListView_GetNextItem()

Thanks, it works pefrectly

Now how do i get the handle to the selected item ?

I want to

GUICtrlSetImage($ItemHandle, @TempDir & "\" & $Iconname, '', 2)

Is this possible ?

I tried

_GUICtrlListView_SetItemImage ($results,$Index,@TempDir & "\" & $Iconname,0)

but its not working.

What does work is:

GUICtrlSetImage(GUICtrlRead($results), @TempDir & "\" & $Iconname, '', 2)

But i thought i could use some of those cool UDF's

Third parameter in _GUICtrlListView_SetItemImage() is handle to image list. You crete image list with _GUIImageListCreate(), add images to list with _GUIImageListAdd...() and then call _GUICtrlListView_SetItemImage().
