TreeView and the SpaceBar

Recommended Posts

zamboni128

I have a treeview list with checkboxes and everything is working correctly when I use the mouse to check or uncheck the item. When I use the spacebar to check or uncheck the item, it only affects the item I'm on. I need to be able to disable the spacebar or when the spacebar is pressed, call a function to set the other items checked status.

Questions:

1. Can the spacebar be disabled in a treeview?

2. Can a function be called when the user presses the spacebar in a treeview?

Thanks in advance.

zamboni128,

Could you please post some reproducer code - anything we code ourselves is likely to be very different and so not helpful to you. ;)

I've attached my example code.

If I select 1-6 with the mouse, 1-6-1, 1-1, Parent1 and Top are all checked.

If I select 1-6 with the spacebar, only 1-6 is checked

I just realized the file didn't upload...

      Hi Community,

      I have a problem with the usage of _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild and setting different item text colors (and different background colors), separately for the TreeView levels.

      I use the UDF GUITreeViewEx.au3 of 'Melba23' and I renamed the functions to increase my understanding about the content. I already talked to him about his UDF to respect his rights and intellectual property. I read many forum threads, I tried many ways to get it, but it's seems to be impossible in the way that I use the UDF.

      Question:
      How can I set different item text colors, separately for the TreeView levels?
      How can I set different item background colors, separately for the TreeView levels?

      I found out that _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild don't let my set this properties directly. But after loading the TreeView content I can't change the items (children) too. Only the font weight to bold I could set with _GUICtrlTreeView_SetBold but I want to do this in a generic way directly at the creation (loading) of the TreeView.

      Of course I tried the different functions to set text color or bkgColor, but it didn't work - maybe I do it wrong.
      I really hope you can help me, give me a hint and understand what I want to do.
      [Solved] final solution made by @LarsJ (see below)

      Thanks for your help - I'm grateful!

      Hello,
      I am struggling in merging GUITreeViewEx, Shelltristate and enhancing to handle a third state that means : some items under are selected.
      I have difficulties handling expand order and key Space (especially when node is collapsed).
      Here the zip with UDF and and example.
       
      The problem I might need some advice to handle : 
      1- When load Treeview, have a correct settings of the checkbox for a tristate tree
      2 - Handle keyboard used for walking in tree
           Chicken is checked and  Steak is unchecked
          When walking with arrow to Meat, it gets unchecked
      3 - When node is collapsed and checked thru keyboard (space)
         the middle state is possible which should not
      Here is joined an animated gif showing the 3 problems
       
      Thanks for your advices

      Hello,
      I just bumped into this problem with _GUICtrlTreeView_Sort.
      Just used doc example and comment out the child creation

      There is a similar problem with deeper tree
      Also based on the example
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiTreeView.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Example() Func Example() Local $aidItem[10], $bidItem[10], $iX = 9, $iY = 29, $idTreeView Local $iStyle = BitOR($TVS_EDITLABELS, $TVS_HASBUTTONS, $TVS_HASLINES, $TVS_LINESATROOT, $TVS_DISABLEDRAGDROP, $TVS_SHOWSELALWAYS) GUICreate("TreeView Sort", 400, 300) $idTreeView = GUICtrlCreateTreeView(2, 2, 396, 268, $iStyle, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) _GUICtrlTreeView_BeginUpdate($idTreeView) $index=0 For $x = 0 To 3 $aidItem[$x] = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem(StringFormat("[%02d] New Item", $iX), $idTreeView) $iX -= 1 For $y = 1 To 2 $BidItem[$y]= GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem(StringFormat("[%02d] New Child", $iY), $aidItem[$x]) $iY -= 1 For $z= 1 To 2 GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem(StringFormat("[%02d] New Child", $iY), $BidItem[$y]) $iY -= 1 Next Next Next _GUICtrlTreeView_Expand($idTreeView) _GUICtrlTreeView_EndUpdate($idTreeView) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Information", "Sort") _GUICtrlTreeView_Sort($idTreeView) _GUICtrlTreeView_SelectItem($idTreeView, $aidItem[9]) ; Boucle jusqu'à ce que l'utilisateur quitte. Do Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete() EndFunc ;==>Example The tree is now 2 level deep and it is not properly sorted.
       
      Any advices ?

      I can't explain easily what i want to do, so i made a picture:

      What i want to do is to specify a treeview item, and then be able to move it right to be a child of the previous item, or left to do the opposite (make a child into a sibling). I also want to move and child items of the target with it, like in the bottom half of the above image depicts. However I didn't see any functions in the help file to move items around. All i want is a button that when pressed, makes the selected item and any of selected item's children move one layer to the right / left. Does anyone know how?

      Edit: something along the lines of _GUICtrlTreeView_Level but SET level

      Hi everyone. Im creating a GUI for an application. Im usinga  treeview item and i want to add some information to the side of the treeview based on what cilditem you are pressing. For the moment i have a "get info" button that works. But that means that you have to select your child in the treeview, and then press a button to gte the info. I want the info to be visable as soon as you select it.
      With uther controls you can just add it to the loop but it doesnt seem to work with tyhe UDF version of the treeview control. Is there anything I can do?
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiTreeView.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> ;~ Create GUI dim $guilabel[7] local $currentlevel = 1 Local $hGui = GUICreate( "Grejs", 1000, 500, 600, 300, BitOR( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX ) ) Local $iBorderWidth = 4, $aPos = WinGetClientSize( $hGui ) $idTV = _GUICtrlTreeView_Create($hGui, $iBorderWidth, $iBorderWidth, $aPos[0]-2*$iBorderWidth-400, $aPos[1]-2*$iBorderWidth-30 ) $root_level = _GUICtrlTreeView_Add($idTV,0,"Root") $item1 = _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($idTV, $root_level, "child1") $item2 = _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($idTV, $root_level, "child2") $item3 = _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($idTV, $root_level, "child3") ;~ Start Gui GUISetState() While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop Case $idTV MsgBox(0,"","") EndSwitch WEnd GUIDelete($hGui) Exit In this example, i want the msgbox to appear whenevr i select something in the treeview. It ios not my full code, but its an example of the problam i have. Help is much appritiated
