Stop the refresh of a GUI List while insertions are in progress

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have a GUI List :

$ResultZone = GUICtrlCreateList("", $ResultZoneXPos, $ResultZoneYPos, $ResultZoneWidth, $ResultZoneHeight)

I have a loop that builds the content of my List like this :

_GUICtrlListBox_ResetContent($ResultZone)
GUICtrlSetState($ResultZone, $GUI_DISABLE) ; DISABLES THE LIST BUT DOESN'T STOP THE LINE-BY-LINE REFRESH
For $i = 1 To 1000
GUICtrlSetData($ResultZone, "This is line n°" & $i)
Next
GUICtrlSetState($ResultZone, $GUI_ENABLE) ; DISABLES THE LIST BUT DOESN'T STOP THE LINE-BY-LINE REFRESH

As you can see, I have tried to disable the refresh before the loop, and enable it after. My purpose is to speed up the populating process, and also to avoid the "flickering" during the line-by-line insertion.

With these instructions, the List is just disabled (greyed) but the refresh is still done after each new line inserted.

I'd like my List to pass from the state "empty" to the state "fully populated" without displaying all the intermediate steps.

Thank you for your help ! :cheer::lmao::cheer:
