Listview Delete

4 posts in this topic

Can someone please give me some insight as to the difference between:

_GUICtrlListView_DeleteItem ( $hWnd, $iIndex )
 
_GUICtrlListView_DeleteItemsSelected ( $hWnd )
 
I have read the help files, but really not clear as to one over the other.
 
Thanks, I'm still learning this stuff!

Thank you for a response.

I already knew one by selection and one by index, so I was wondering if there was any insightful information as to how, when or why one would use one over the other.  The help file really doesn't give good clues that would be beneficial in that regard.

They're used for completely different purposes. The *DeleteItemsSelected would be used if you're deleting a selected line in a ListView, while the *DeleteItem uses the index number to delete a line from the LV. You'd use the second one when you're running through a LV's contents, for example, find something that needs to be deleted and then delete it. The other method would be used, for example, as a right click context menu delete item from the LV.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
