Getting the content of a list box as a string or array

Recommended Posts

nullschritt

Hello all, until recently I was using a listview to sort out a list of data, however I now feel it would look better to put the data in a listbox, rather than a list view. I found a function to convert listviews into an array but none to put a listbox in an array or string(that I could find)

Could anyone provide some help with this?

I would assume that the steps are similar, just substituting _GUICtrlList_*  for the  equivalent _GUICtlrListView_* function.


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.

The functions are not that simmilar, the function for listviews returns a 2d array of the data inside it (since the data can be in a grid, with rows and columns).

I made this, it seems to work.

func _guictrllistbox_getall($control)
                                $count = _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($control)
                                $temp = ""
                                for $i=0 to $count-1
                                    $temp &= _GUICtrlListBox_GetText($control, $i)&"|"
                                Next
                                Return $temp
EndFunc
