Search for a ListView (search all columns and only show matched data)?

Recommended Posts


I need a ListView with values from a 2-dimensional array (i have that coded already). Now (as the GUI should display adresses of persons with many different properties like street, town...) i need a search field where i can enter some text.

And after that (i don't have to press enter, just put something in the search field) the ListView should be searched for and only the elements that match the query (in any of its columns) should remain in the ListView.

If i empty the seach field, all entries should be visible again.

Does anybody of you know how to implement this? I couldn't find a solution yet :(

I would do all the hard sorting work on the array you used to fill the ListView initially, delete the current ListView content, and then when you have the new array after the search use that to refill the ListView. My GUIListViewEx UDF might well prove useful here. :)

Open spoiler to see my UDFs:

GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
