Equivalent SetItemParam

Recommended Posts

I am tinkering with TreeView ideas and I am stumped. Is there a method I can use to set the Param value of a tree items when the tree is populated using: GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem. 


Is there a method that I can use to get GUICtrlSetOnEvent to work when creating items using _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild.

I searched the help file and I may be off on my search terms or it is not possible. What I hope to do is set the parameters of the treeview items to the value of a sql db record ID (key).

You must not set the Param on items created with the native GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem function as AutoIt uses that field to store a ControlID so it can manage the TreeView content.

One way you could do what you want is to create an array which holds the item data and the associated database key - then when you click on an item you can detect its text and search the array for a match and thus the key. If that sounds a reasonable approach then we could work to produce something.

Open spoiler to see my UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
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
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

@Melba23... strangely, I had not thought of this approach. :doh:  I'll work on that method and see how it fairs. I did see the statement in the help about not setting the param when using GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem which is why I wondered if there was another method.

I'll try the array approach and post my findings...

Thanks for the idea!
