Is it possible to click-and-sort SysLinks with GUIListViewSysLink UDF?

Recommended Posts

I have read up and use the GUIListViewSysLink UDF found in this link () and I am finding a way if it is possible to detect user clicks on column headers that would also sort SysLinks.

For instance, I have created a ListView with several ListViewItems added, except that the last column would be a SysLink as follows:


$exampleList = GUICtrlCreateListView("Num |Object |Link", 30, 85, 640, 480, $LVS_REPORT, BitOR($LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE))


$exampleItem[$n] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($n & "|" & myGetFunction($n), $exampleList)
$exampleSysLink[$n] = _GUICtrlListView_SysLinkCreate($exampleList , "Linked item", 1, $n, 4)
After generating each SysLink to the ListView, I added a function to perform column resizing like this link ('?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>).
Issue now is clicking the column header would sort the items within the ListView/ListViewItems, except for the SysLinks. From what I see inside GUIListViewSysLink.au3, it seems that the function for _GUICtrlListView_SysLinkCreate() is making each link a topmost, overlapping Windows popup and not a native ListViewItem, meaning that there should be a way to detect user clicks for column headers.
I consulted this link ('?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> - pay special attention to  _WM_NOTIFY) but was unable to print to the console on what column ID was selected.
Do I need to write a function within GUIListViewSysLink.au3 that does the sorting of the SysLinks when the user clicks a column header, or do I need to destroy all SysLinks and re-populate my ListView?
Another issue is that when the resizing is done, the SysLinks would appear overlapping over ListViewItems.
Scrolling left/right across the ListView would cause SysLinks to flicker as well.
What methods are available to overcome the issues mentioned?

Bumping this thread.

At the meantime, I would avoid using the custom UDF for GUICtrlListViewSysLink, and instead place opening file links (as a workaround)  via a right-click > ContextMenu like the way this previous thread discussed:
