Listbox, mouse selection problem

Recommended Posts

xavierh

Friends,

I have written a program that among other things displays data in 3 listboxes. when the window has its original size, it works fine. But if I increase the size the window vertically the listboxes stretch as they should, and I can't select their top entries with the mouse Posted Image . The last listbox entries are not affected. The more I stretch the window vertically, the more entries become out of reach by the mouse. Also the highest entry that can be selected by the mouse is iffy. It has to be low on the entry.

But the keyboard arrow keys can select them with no problem.

The listboxes are resized with the window because of commands like

GUICtrlSetResizing ( $ControlHandle, $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKSIZE + $GUI_DOCKRIGHT )

and that's probably where there is a problem with listview selection.

My OS is windows 2008R1, and I've tried this using both beta 17 and version 3.3.6.1, if that has anything to do with it.

Ideas anyone?

Here is the code to build a sample UI to reproduce the problem. It puts a list the folders into a listbox. Run it, try to select the top entries, then stretch the window vertically and try to select the top entries:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)
Dim $Win, $lblFolderList, $lbFolders
Main ()
Func Main ()
 $Win = GUICreate("Test Script", @DesktopWidth / 2 - 255, 188, 192, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 45, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW);$WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_MINIMIZE)
 $lblFolderList = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Folders List", 4, 8, 37, 17)
 GUICtrlSetResizing ( $lblFolderList, $GUI_DOCKLEFT + $GUI_DOCKWIDTH + $GUI_DOCKTOP )
 $lbFolders = GUICtrlCreateList("", 4, 24, 65, 168)
 GUICtrlSetResizing ( $lbFolders, $GUI_DOCKLEFT + $GUI_DOCKWIDTH + $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKBOTTOM )
 GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
 PopulateFolders()
 GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "OnExit")
 GUISetState()
 While 1
  Sleep ( 1000 )
 WEnd
EndFunc
Func OnExit()
 Exit
EndFunc
Func PopulateFolders()
Dim $Search, $Found
Dim $InitDir = "C:\"
 GUICtrlSetData ( $lbFolders, "|" )
 $Search = FileFindFirstFile ( $InitDir & "\*.*" )
 if $Search > -1 Then
  While 1
   $Found = FileFindNextFile ( $Search )
   if @error Then ExitLoop
   If @extended = 1 Then
    GUICtrlSetData ( $lbFolders, $Found )
   EndIf
  WEnd
 EndIf
EndFunc

It's best to have a fully functional script that shows the problem, rather than a portion of it that someone else has to do a lot of extra work to make it run. I don't mean post your whole script, just a reproducer script that shows the problem.


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.

you're right, BrewManNH, so I just put something together to demo the problem, and updated my original post. Thanks!

If you comment out the label and the resizing section of the script, it works fine. It might be that your label is overlapping.

      Hello fellow coders.
      Im currently making a GUI for a webapp. Im using a REST API to get information and display this in a Tree view. Its basically a scheduler of "tasks" and these tasks are great to display in a tree view.
      The problem im having is that on some servers the tree can get rather large. So my GUI is reziable in ordet to be able to fit all the tasks in the view. I have then used GUICtrlSetResizing with diffrent options to get the GUI to look alright even when i resize it. It works fine an all GUI elements, except for the Tree-view. And if i remember correctly, the treeview item is another type of object and you cannot use regular GUI functions on it. Therefor im wondering of there are any alternatives?
       
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <GuiTreeView.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 208, 220, 192, 124,$WS_SIZEBOX) $idTV = _GUICtrlTreeView_Create($Form1, 4, 25, 200, 140) GUICtrlSetResizing(-1,$GUI_DOCKMENUBAR) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 8, 168, 75, 25) GUICtrlSetResizing(-1,$GUI_DOCKSTATEBAR) $Text = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Text", 8, 8, 25, 17) GUICtrlSetResizing(-1,$GUI_DOCKMENUBAR) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd This code is an example of my problem (run it and try to resize the window). If anyone has any ideas i would appreciate it

      Hello
      Today I'm working on listbox but there might be something that I'm missing...
      I made a little script that allow the user to swap 2 items for the listbox. So the user select for example the 3rd item, press the button "Up" and it switch with the 2nd one, same with the "Down" button that switch with the 4th one.
      But when I select the 3rd item and switch it the item become unselected and I would like to select it again after the manipulation :
      As you can see in the comment of the script, _GUICtrlListBox_SetSel don't highlight/select them once the swap process is done..
      What am I missing ?

      I know there are listbox and listview, but now I have?
      here is the video of infowindow 
      I tried to read mouse selection like for listbox:
      $listWindow = "[CLASS:TFormResearchGR]" $topicsList = "[CLASS:TMWrapper; INSTANCE:255]" WinWait($listWindow, "", 60) $hdlWindow = WinGetHandle($listWindow) $hdlList = ControlGetHandle($hdlWindow, "", $topicsList) _GUICtrlListBox_ClickItem($hdlList, 0, "left") $countOfList = _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($hdlList) ConsoleWrite("Count of list: " & $countOfList & @LF) count of list is not working.
      I realiezed that there are difference between listbox and listview, but this is something different.
      and till now I never saw that you can go inside with infotool and also get instances.
       
      so Im confused how to get the list number and the names of selection?
