GUICtrlCreateListView using UP and DOWN buttons

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm have a working program that displays the users in Active Directory. When a user's name is clicked on it displays their details (profile folder, work folder, etc). However, what I'd really like to do is be able to eliminate using the mouse as much as possible, so instead of having to click on each user's name, you can use the UP and DOWN arrows and it will act as though their name has been clicked on (if that makes any sense?).

Here's some of the code so far:

$ADListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("Login Name|Display Name", 140, 60, 220, 280);A ListView to display the users

; Adjust the ADListView column headers
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($ADListView, 0, 100)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($ADListView, 1, 116)

Func UpdateUserList()
$SelectedUserType = GUICtrlRead($UserTypeCombo)

;Get the base OU for the user type
$SelectedUserTypeBaseOU = IniRead("iniUsers.ini", $SelectedUserType, "BaseOU", "NotFound")
;Get the filtered results from the AD using base OU
$ADData = _AD_GetObjectsInOU($SelectedUserTypeBaseOU, "(&(objectclass=user)(name=*))", 2, "sAMAccountName,distinguishedName,displayname", "displayname")
GUICtrlSetData($ADListView, $ADData)
GUICtrlSetData($UserPropertiesEditBox, "Properties of Selected User")
$SelectedUser = ""
;For each AD user, add an item in in the ListView
For $i = 1 To UBound($ADData) - 1
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ADData[$i][0] & "|" & $ADData[$i][2], $ADListView)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "ListClicked") ; For each item, add the required event
EndFunc ;==>UpdateUserList

Func ListClicked()
$ItemString = GUICtrlRead(@GUI_CtrlId)
$ItemArray = StringSplit($ItemString, "|")
$SelectedUser = $ItemArray[1]
$givenName = _AD_GetObjectAttribute($SelectedUser, "givenName")
$SN = _AD_GetObjectAttribute($SelectedUser, "SN")
$displayName = _AD_GetObjectAttribute($SelectedUser, "displayName")
$profilePath = _AD_GetObjectAttribute($SelectedUser, "profilePath")
$homeDirectory = _AD_GetObjectAttribute($SelectedUser, "homeDirectory")
$homeDrive = _AD_GetObjectAttribute($SelectedUser, "homeDrive")
$GroupArray = _AD_GetUserGroups($SelectedUser)
GUICtrlSetData($UserPropertiesEditBox, "")
_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($UserPropertiesEditBox, "Properties of Selected User")
_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($UserPropertiesEditBox, @CRLF & @CRLF & "First Name: " & $givenName)
_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($UserPropertiesEditBox, @CRLF & @CRLF & "Last Name: " & $SN)
_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($UserPropertiesEditBox, @CRLF & @CRLF & "Login Name: " & $SelectedUser)
_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($UserPropertiesEditBox, @CRLF & @CRLF & "Profile Directory: " & $profilePath)
_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($UserPropertiesEditBox, @CRLF & @CRLF & "Home Directory: " & $homeDirectory & " (" & $homeDrive & ")")
_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($UserPropertiesEditBox, @CRLF & @CRLF & "Group Membership:")
For $i = 1 To UBound($GroupArray) - 1
_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($UserPropertiesEditBox, @CRLF & _AD_FQDNToDisplayname($GroupArray[$i]))

EndFunc ;==>ListClicked

Any help would be great, thank you! :)

P.s. I suspect it needs to be something in the

;For each AD user, add an item in in the ListView
For $i = 1 To UBound($ADData) - 1
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($ADData[$i][0] & "|" & $ADData[$i][2], $ADListView)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "ListClicked") ; For each item, add the required event

So that when the UP or DOWN arrows are used they GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "ListClicked") - I just can't seem to find out how.

Hello, xinix. Today, I have been trying to do the same thing you are doing. It doesn't appear to be an easy thing to do. The closest I have come so far has been using _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectionMark to find the zero based index of the selected row. Then, you can use _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem to insert an item. Note that it does not insert multiple columns. Using the separator "|" does not split your data. Lastly, you can use _GUICtrlListView_DeleteItemsSelected to delete any unwanted rows.

I'm not very hopeful of an easy solution. Looking at previous solutions to small problems like editing a second column, I have seen dozens of lines of code with things I don't fully understand yet (like creating structures, calling DLLs and $WM_NOTIFY).

As easy as AutoIt is on most things, I thought there would be a _RowMoveUP and _RowMoveDown kind of function. Maybe there's some technical reason why it can't be done so easily.

Hi abberration

Thank you - I thought I was missing something obvious but at least I know it's not and that others have had similar issues. Sad though :-(

All the best

      Hi there, 

      I have a question about persistent drives and AD. 
      I am playing around with a script but I'm missing something. What i want to do is if a user is part of an OU, it will map a network drive and be persistent. However if a user is moved out of that OU, they will need to have the persistent drive removed. 

      I'm using the ad plugin script, and i can map the drives if a user is in a specific ou, but i cannot seem to delete the drive if the user is out of the OU. 

      Here's an example of code I'm using: 

      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Compression=4 #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion=1.0.0 #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #include <AD\AD.au3> func MapDrives() _AD_Open() if _AD_RecursiveIsMemberOf(OU) Then Mapdrive1() Elseif _AD_RecursiveIsMemberOf(different ou) drivemapdel EndIf _AD_Close() EndFunc Func MapDrive1() Drivemapdel ("Z:") DriveMapAdd ("Z:"."\\server\share",$DMA_PERSISTENT,0) EndFunc

      OK, still learning SOLVED! $WS_EX_COMPOSITED hides buttons?
      I've read, run examples but cannot show action buttons in tabs in a GUI.
      I've run the GUICtrlCreateTabItem function example and, of course, it works.
      Mine doesn't:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <MenuConstants.au3> #include <TabConstants.au3> #include <ColorConstants.au3> $hGUI = GUICreate("My GUI Tab", @DesktopWidth * 1, @DesktopHeight * 1, 0, 0,-1, $WS_EX_COMPOSITED) $hTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 640, 480,$TCS_HOTTRACK) ; Create tabitems ;For $i = 0 To 2 GUICtrlCreateTabItem(" Scan Sample ") ; $idButton1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button " & 0, 20 + (0 * 100), 40 + (0 * 50), 80, 30) ; $idButton1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("00", 20, 50, 80, 30) GUICtrlCreateLabel("label0", 30, 80, 50, 20) GUICtrlCreateButton("OK0", 20, 50, 50, 20) GUICtrlCreateInput("default", 80, 50, 70, 20) GUICtrlCreateTabItem(" Database ") GUICtrlCreateButton("Button " & 1, 20 + (1 * 100), 40 + (1 * 50), 80, 30) GUICtrlCreateTabItem(" Software ") GUICtrlCreateButton("Button " & 2, 20 + (2 * 100), 40 + (2 * 50), 80, 30) ;Next ; Close Tab definiton GUICtrlCreateTabItem("") ; Set the color of the label control. ; GUICtrlSetColor($idButton1, 0x002E7A) GUISetState() While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd It just shows:
      whatever I try.  So I've missed, again?, that I do not have the focus?

      Hi guys, 
      I'd like to write a piece of tool that would allow me to update a certain field in our Active Directory from a comma separated csv file composed like this:

      This file, automatically generated, can hold more than 10k lines.
      Thus, I need column A to be in one variable, column B in a second one and column C in a third one.
      I'm really missing this part as updating the AD is fairly easy once the 3 variable are populated. 
      I see things like this:
      Here's my attempts at the moment:
      #include <File.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $csv_file = @DesktopDir & "\Book1.csv" Global $aRecords If Not _FileReadToArray($csv_file,$aRecords) Then MsgBox(4096,"Error", " Error reading log to Array error:" & @error) Exit EndIf For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0] Msgbox(0,'Record:' & $x, $aRecords[$x]) ; Shows the line that was read from file $csv_line_values = StringSplit($aRecords[$x], ",",1) ; Splits the line into 2 or more variables and puts them in an array ; _ArrayDisplay($csv_line_values) ; Shows what's in the array you just created. ; $csv_line_values[0] holds the number of elements in array ; $csv_line_values[1] holds the value ; $csv_line_values[2] holds the value ; etc Msgbox(0, 0, $csv_line_values[1]) Next Any help on this please? 
      Thanks in advance

      Should the AD UDF support the fine grained password policy available since Windows Server 2012?
      What do fine-grained password policies do?
      You can use fine-grained password policies to specify multiple password policies in a single domain and apply different restrictions for password and account lockout policies to different sets of users in a domain.
