listview and change selected item

Recommended Posts


ive been searching and trying alot of samples on forum but nothing works how i want itto and i cant modify them >.< 

i am trying to create a listview with guictrlsetonevent ().. but listview isnt reacting to setonevent .. why? 

i just want when  i click on listview items that the function get called and read what item is selected  and change the text on double click 


i specifically looked at this for a bit of time 

but your method isnt returning anything to me ... i have 2 listviews in my gui

You will need to use a message handler - take a look at my GUIListViewEx UDF. :)


Edit: I now see you linked to one of my scripts which uses a message handler. I would counsel against detecting single clicks on a ListView - quite often I have found them to be eaten by the control itself. I again point you to my UDF - it allows for item editing and most other things. :)

Func GUIControl()
    If _WinAPI_GetFocus() <> GUICtrlGetHandle($listview) Then
        $iCount = _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedCount($listview)
        ; Are any items selected
        If $iCount Then
            $Split = StringSplit(GUICtrlRead(GUICtrlRead($listview)), "|")
            If $Split[2] = "N" Then
                _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText($listview, _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($listview), "Y", 1)
                _GUICtrlListView_JustifyColumn($listview, _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($listview), 2)
            ElseIf $Split[2] = "Y" Then
                _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText($listview, _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($listview), "N", 1)
                _GUICtrlListView_JustifyColumn($listview, _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices($listview), 2)
            EndIf _GUICtrlListView_SetItemSelected($listview, -1, 0, 0)
EndFunc   ;==>GUIControl
this changes the Y=Yes / N=No values on subitem :P because this is easier for me as instead of making checkboxes :P


done this myself except i used a little snippet part of some source i cant remember where i found it ... my head is all over the place :D


but other people will know how to use this... 


EDIT : bah ... fix the  autoit code melba please... i try edit and edit 5 times now but everything come like that in green ... >.>
