Easiest way to count # times an item occurs in listview....

Recommended Posts

I am using the native listview control and am looking for the quickest way to loop through the items in the listview control, counting how many times a value exists. For example, My listview has 3 columns.

Column 1 - Name

Column 2 - State

Column 3 - Resident/Non-resident

I need loop through the listiview, checking the third column to count how many are flagged as resident. Is there a good quick way of doing this directly by seaching through the listview, or will I have to read all of hte info into an array first and they search the array. I am looking for the quickest way to do this as I am doing this at work, for work but don't have any official time to work on it, so I am working on it between other projects. Any suggestions appreciated.

I think the below should work, When the loop exits, $Cnt should be the number of 'Resident's found

$i = 0
$Cnt = 0
While $i = _GUICtrlListView_FindText($hListView, "Resident",$i)
$i += 1 ;start next search after the current result
$Cnt += 1

Here's one way of doing it.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <guilistview.au3>
$Count = 0
GUICreate("Test Listview")
$listview = GUICtrlCreateListView("Name|State|Resident/Non-Resident", 10, 70, 380, 320)
For $I = 0 To 20
     If Mod($I, 2) Then
          $Res = "R"
          $Res = "N"
     GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Name" & $I & "|State" & $I & "|" & $Res, $listview)
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Count", 10, 10)
While 1
     $msg = GUIGetMsg()
     Switch $msg
          Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
          Case $Button
               For $I = 0 To _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($listview) - 1
                    $Array = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemTextArray($listview, $I)
                    If $Array[3] = "R" Then $Count += 1
               ConsoleWrite("Count = " & $Count & @CRLF)
