trigger listview sort callback function (GUICtrlRegisterListViewSort())

3 posts in this topic

Hi!

i'm using GUICtrlRegisterListViewSort() with a custum sort callback function to compare/sort dates (in column 3).

I know about _GUICtrlListView_SortItems() with _GUICtrlListView_RegisterSortCallBack(), but that 'simple sort function' and will not work correctly with dates, right?

is it possible to re-sort a listview after adding items to it?

example:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ListViewConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

Global $g_iCurCol = -1
Global $g_iSortDir = 1
Global $g_bSet = False
Global $g_iCol = -1

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("Test", 300, 200)

    Local $idLv = GUICtrlCreateListView("Column1|Col2|Col3", 10, 10, 280, 150)
    GUICtrlRegisterListViewSort(-1, "LVSort") ; Register the function "SortLV" for the sorting callback

    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("ABC|666|10.05.2004", $idLv)
    GUICtrlSetImage(-1, "shell32.dll", 7)
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("DEF|444|11.05.2005", $idLv)
    GUICtrlSetImage(-1, "shell32.dll", 12)
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("CDE|444|12.05.2004", $idLv)
    GUICtrlSetImage(-1, "shell32.dll", 3)

    $idBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton('add item', 10, 166, 280, 28)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    Local $idMsg
    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        $idMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $idMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop

            Case $idLv
                $g_bSet = False
                $g_iCurCol = $g_iCol
                GUICtrlSendMsg($idLv, $LVM_SETSELECTEDCOLUMN, GUICtrlGetState($idLv), 0)
;~                 DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "InvalidateRect", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle($idLv), "int", 0, "int", 1)
            Case $idBtn
                GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("BCD|333|13.05.2001", $idLv)

I really appreciate any help you guys can provide!

you could add an additional column, hide the additional column, put the dates as Integer ( 20151231 ) and tell it to sort from there. ( my .02 cents )

heh, that's pretty clever!

another way to solve this is.. create copies of GUICtrlListView_SortItems(), _GUICtrlListView_RegisterSortCallBack() and __GUICtrlListView_Sort() and implement whatever you need!

dirty, but its working :)

thank you for your reply!
