~ Tooltip For Long Items' Labels In ListView? (SOLVED)

Recommended Posts

EKY32

I have a list view with long items' labels and I need to view a tool tip showing the full item label when the mouse cursor is over the Explorer-Styled item:

Any help please?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ListViewConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 275, 243, 192, 124)
$ListView1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("one|two", 8, 8, 257, 225)
_SetWindowTheme(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), "Explorer")
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 0, 50)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 1, 50)
$ListView1_0 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item 1|item1-1", $ListView1)
$ListView1_1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item2|item2-2", $ListView1)
$ListView1_2 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item item item 3|item item item 3-3", $ListView1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _SetWindowTheme($hWnd, $sName = 0, $sList = 0)
Local $TypeOfName = 'wstr', $TypeOfList = 'wstr'
If Not IsString($sName) Then
$TypeOfName = 'ptr'
$sName = 0
EndIf
If Not IsString($sList) Then
$TypeOfList = 'ptr'
$sList = 0
EndIf
Local $Ret = DllCall('uxtheme.dll', 'uint', 'SetWindowTheme', 'hwnd', $hWnd, $TypeOfName, $sName, $TypeOfList, $sList)
If @error Then
Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
Else
If $Ret[0] Then
Return SetError(1, $Ret[0], 0)
EndIf
EndIf
Return 1
EndFunc ;==>CtrlSetTheme

Thank you.

I have an application that has a lot more information in some sub-items of the list view.

Even "$LVS_EX_INFOTIP" didn't cut it for me since it doesn't include line breaks or doesn't wrap.

What I've had to do was catch a few Widows Messages and display a custom infotip for them that

will wrap the string and include line breaks. I still don't like this method since it's pretty tricky to remove

the current infotip when the mouse leaves the gui, I can't figure out how to do it without using a mouse hook

or windows hook, which I'd like to avoid... :(

And adlib doesn't work either since the app is pretty busy doing things at times, which is why I'd like to solve

this using a windows message method. Still trying it though, and if I have something, I'll post it here. One of the problems is that the windows

messages like mouse events don't work with the listview.


Things that I've done..

Icon Resource Editor: icon resource editor 

AutoIt Piano: a piano

AutoIt Unlocker: unlocks files when you want to delete them

Colorful tooltips: a wrapper for the tool tips UDF

Rouge GoogleBot: a full screen animation

ASciTE text editor: a text editor written in autoit
