Populete listview from ini file

Recommended Posts

Copyrigth

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to populate an listview using ini file?

My ini file looks like this:

[copmuter1]
user=student
OS=win7

[copmuter2]
user=Admin
OS=winxp

Yes there is.


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.

It depends on what you want the listview to look like with the data you have. 1 column, 2 columns, 3 columns? User name in one column and computer name in another, and/or with the OS version in a third for instance. Give me something to work with rather than ask if it's possible with no clue what you're looking to do with the data.

I was thinking about what you described, with 3 collums :)

like this:

Field1 | Field2 | Field3

User | computername | OS

copyrigth,

This should get you started...

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***

#include <array.au3>

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n

local $iniFile = @scriptdir & '\computers.ini'
local $aSections = IniReadSectionNames($iniFile)

if not isarray($aSections) then
    msgbox($mb_ok,'INI READ Section Names ERROR','File = ' & $iniFile)
    Exit
endif

local $gui010   =   guicreate('INI to ListView control Example')
local $aGuiSize =   wingetclientsize($gui010)
local $lv010    =   guictrlcreatelistview('Computer|Student|OpSys',20,20,$aGuiSize[0]-40,$aGuiSize[1]-40)
                    guisetstate()

; populate listview

local $aSection, $sLVItem

for $1 = 1 to $aSections[0]
    $aSection = inireadsection($iniFile,$aSections[$1])
    if @error = 1 then
        msgbox($mb_ok,'INI READ Section ERROR','File = ' & $iniFile)
        Exit
    endif

    for $2 = 1 to $aSection[0][0]
            $sLVItem &= $aSection[$2][1] & '|'
    next

    if guictrlcreatelistviewitem($aSections[$1] & '|' & $sLVItem,$lv010) = 0 then
        msgbox($mb_ok,'ListView Item Create ERROR','Item = ' & $aSections[$1] & '|' & $sLVItem)
        Exit
    endif

    $sLVItem = ''

next

while 1
    switch guigetmsg()
        case $gui_event_close
            Exit
    EndSwitch
wend

My pleasure, now it's your turn. If you don't understand something, look it up in the HELP file and see how it works within the context of this script.

Good Luck,

kylomas
