FindText and GetText of a ListBox with multiple columns

Recommended Posts

rmembrives

Hi,

I have tried to find a item of a ListBox with _GUICtrlListBox_FindString, _GUICtrlListBox_FindInText, _GUICtrlListBox_GetSelItemsText, _GUICtrlListBox_GetText, ControlGetText, ControlListView, ControlCommand but nothing work.

However other functions like _GUICtrlListBox_SetCurSel and _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount responds OK.

I think that the problem cause is the multiple columns of the ListBox, any idea?

Thank you for any help you can provide!

Hi,

Welcome to the autoit forum :)

I don't know much about _GUICtrlListBox* functions, can you post some informations about the control (using the AutoIt3Info tool), but moreover a screenshot of this one (you're probably talking about a listview isn'it ?)

Br, FireFox.

First off, welcome to the forums.

Second, Listboxes normally don't have multiple columns, so you might be dealing with a listview and not a listbox. Are you sure it's a listbox you're accessing? 


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.

rmembrives,

I for one cannot open the link to see the image. Which app are you trying to automate? What is the full control info from the Window Info Tool? :huh:

It´s an internal app from another company, this is the control info:

I have make a workaround sending keystrokes and using the clipboard, but its a little slow. In others ListBox controls in the app with only one column, the FindText funcion works OK

I attach the screenshot.

rmembrives,

It certainly looks like a ListView - but some Googling threw up references to ListBoxes with columns and a header. So I am prepared to believe that it is what the Window Info tool says - particularly as you say that some of the _GUICtrlListBox functions work. :wacko:

However, I would also say that the addition of columns to the basic ListBox control (it seemed pretty complex to do this from what I saw when searching) is what is preventing the other functions from working. So I cannot offer any suggestions - sorry about that. :(

I am just delighted that you have managed to find a workaround. :)

Hello!

How I get to work with the content of the rows of a list box it's using the clipboard. I select the row, then send("^c") and then read from ClipGet().

An example:

Local $control_hd = ControlGetHandle($fw_old,"","[CLASS:ListBox; INSTANCE:1]")
Local $num = _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($control_hd)
; Here I select all the rows
_GUICtrlListBox_SelItemRangeEx($control_hd, 1, $num)
;Then with a loop i clean the clipboard and copy the selected rows (Send("^c"))     
ClipPut("")     
While (True)         
If (ClipGet() <> "") 
Then            
 ExitLoop         
EndIf         
Send("^c")     
WEnd 
;Then i get the text in the clipboard and save in a variable ($buffer)     
$buffer = ClipGet()

Hope that helps anybody.

Hi carmengfv,

I´m sorry for the late response... that´s the way I get it works.

Perhaps you could save the clipboard state before clean it, and restore it after the process is finished to avoid the lost of clipboard data of the user.

Saludos!
