Using non-unique fields in INI and ListView

7 posts in this topic

I have 2 ListViews (trying GUIListViewEx UDF), one using a Name and one using a Date field but both don't have to be unique.

So more than one user can have the same name, as well I can have two events on the same date. The Date also has a Type

field like Morning or Afternoon so that makes it unique.

There are other fields of course in the ListViews.

I implemented using unique keys (numbers) for the INI file so that INI file contains unique id's.

Problem is that the ListViews don't show the key (by choice) and searching a user by Name can

find 1+ matches in the INI. I need to match up the one selected in the ListView with the INI key.

The issue is I need to make sure which one I am editing or deleting.

Can you have a hidden field in the ListView (the key)?

Should I use the Name or Date as the Key instead of numbers (but that won't be unique)?

What's the best way to implement this?

Looks like it is possible to have an unique ID for every entry. Check _GUICtrlListView_MapIndexToID and _GUICtrlListView_MapIDToIndex

If this doesn't work I will have a look at an older script of mine where I think I had to solve the same problem.

Looks like it won't work because it assigns its' own IDs rather than me setting the ID equal to my INI key number.

Example, my keys could be 1,2,3,4,8,9 because of deletions but the listview will only have 6 items and I need to link item 5 with my INI key 8.

I might have misunderstood the HELP file on this so I'll still try it out to see what results I get.

Garp99HasSpoken,

Can you have a hidden field in the ListView (the key)?

I have done this quite often - just set the column width to 0 with _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth or _GUICtrlListView_HideColumn. :)
