Populate ListView from txt file

Recommended Posts

Cravin

Hello,

I've done quite a bit of sifting through the forums, but have had no luck. I'm trying to figure out how to populate a ListView from a txt file. The ListView is only one column... The name of the file to pull from would be "computers.txt". Below is where I am currently at:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GUIListBox.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <file.au3>
Main()
Func Main()
$Form1 = GUICreate("Computers", 331, 251, 192, 124)
$Process = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 200, 48, 121, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
$CompListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("Computers", 8, 48, 169, 162)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 0, 165)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
 Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
EndFunc ; Main()

Cravin,

Assuming you want each line of the file on a separate line fo the ListView, use _FileListToArray to read the file into an array and then loop through the array and use GUICtrlCreateListViewItem on each element. :)

Something along the lines of this might work for you.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Main()

Func Main()
    Local $hFile = FileOpen("Computers.txt")
    $Form1 = GUICreate("Computers", 331, 251, 192, 124)
    $Process = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 200, 48, 121, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
    $CompListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("Computers", 8, 48, 169, 162)
    While 1
        $Text = FileReadLine($hFile)
        If @error = -1 Then Exitloop
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($Text, $CompListView)
    WEnd

    GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 0, 165)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    While 1
        $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Main

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.
