List View Refresh

6 posts in this topic

I have a program that creates a listview box (using the _GUICtrlListView_* UDFs) and queries an access database. Everytime the database is queried I use _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems and than I add the new query. I have added _GUICtrlListView_SortItems($mainlist, GuiCtrlGetState($mainlist) to the end of each population function however it is sorting everything in reverse (ie if the user had the ListView sorted by last name A-Z the list will repopulate after refresh being sorted by last name Z-A).

Am I using this function right?

Thanks

I just thought of a very ghetto fix... I included the function twice. Hacky and ugly but at least it works. I would still love to hear if there is a better way. I'm pretty sure I know what the problem is, when I populate the listview with my SQL querey it populates in the order that I add items even though the little triangle marker shows that the list SHOULD be sorted by a specific column. When I call the sort command it just simply flips the arrow.

I gather that the sort command doesnt realize that the data wasn't really sorted before I call the sort command.

Thanks

Hi,

You can save the current column sorted and if it's not already sorted then sort it.

boogieoompa,

Why not use the SQL stmt to return data in the order that you want?

Add one of these Listview styles to the Styles parameter setting when you create the listview and it will sort the items as you add them automatically.

$LVS_SORTASCENDING ; Item indexes are sorted based on item text in ascending order
 $LVS_SORTDESCENDING ; Item indexes are sorted based on item text in descending order

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.
