GUI list sort option and

Hi!

 

My list view sorts funny, it goes:

  • 1
  • 12
  • 134
  • 2
  • 256
  • 248
  • 3
  • 648
  • 8

And so fourth, instead of sorting it like common folks would! I can imagine I could fix this by adding zeroes in front to match the highest numbers string length (like 001). But I'd like it to instead sort it like any grade A maths teacher would:

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 10
  • 15
  • 20

Any ideas? Also, how hard would it be to make a selected item in the list copyable. Just instead of straight copy that line, instead have it activate a script to use ClipPut() to make the user copy a certain string based on what list object they selected? This is a episode folder scanner, so if I copied missing episode 9. Instead of "Episode 9" being in clipboard, have "[something, something] & 9" in clipboard.

Here is my koda script so you can see my GUI:

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$LesGUI = GUICreate("Linas Episode Scanner", 274, 242, 192, 124, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST,$WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
$IDirectory = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 8, 8, 225, 21)
$browse = GUICtrlCreateButton("...", 240, 8, 30, 21)
$Season = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Season #", 8, 56, 50, 17, $SS_CENTER)
$ISeason = GUICtrlCreateInput("Null", 8, 80, 50, 21)
$EpisodeS = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Episode Start", 103, 56, 67, 17, $SS_CENTER)
$EpisodeE = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Episode End", 200, 56, 64, 17)
$IEpisodeS = GUICtrlCreateInput("Null", 113, 80, 50, 21)
$IEpisodeE = GUICtrlCreateInput("Null", 200, 80, 65, 21)
$BExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 192, 208, 75, 25)
$BRefresh = GUICtrlCreateButton("Refresh", 192, 176, 75, 25)
$BTop = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stay On Top", 192, 144, 75, 25)
$LEpisodesMissing = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Missing Episodes:", 8, 112, 88, 17)
$ListMissing = GUICtrlCreateList("", 8, 136, 153, 97)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

Just messing around, not sure if itst a solution any better than what you had or if it even works in your situation but its a proof of concept :)

 

#Include <Array.au3>


Local $aTest[8] = ["1", "2", "3", "12", "134", "14", "256", "8"]
Local $aTest2[8]

For $i = 0 to UBound($aTest) -1
    $aTest2[$i] = Hex($aTest[$i])
Next


_ArrayDisplay($aTest)
_ArrayDisplay($aTest2)

_ArraySort($aTest2)


For $i = 0 to UBound($aTest) -1
    $aTest[$i] = Dec($aTest2[$i])
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aTest)
_ArrayDisplay($aTest2)

Sodori,

By default the list control has the $LB_SORT style which forces a sort of the items and also assumes that they are in string format, which leads to the rather unexpected order you see. So you need to remove that style from the list when you create it and sort the values as numbers before adding them to the list:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

; Array of values as strings
Global $aList_String[8] = ["1", "2", "3", "12", "134", "14", "256", "8"]
; And sorted as strings
_ArraySort($aList_String)

; Array of values as numbers
Global $aList_Number[8] = [1, 2, 3, 12, 134, 14, 256, 8]
; And sorted as numbers
_ArraySort($aList_Number)

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

; Create lists without the sort style
$cList_String = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 230, 300, BitOr($WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))
$cList_Number = GUICtrlCreateList("", 260, 10, 230, 300, BitOr($WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))

; Add items to the lists
For $i = 0 To 7
    GUICtrlSetData($cList_String, $aList_String[$i])
    GUICtrlSetData($cList_Number, $aList_Number[$i])
Next

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

All clear?

Much thanks Melba23! How easy do you think it would be for a trigger event upon copying a single item (i.e. selecting a single variable and pressing CTRL+C, with said variable included with the trigger)?

Sodori,

I would use a Accelerator key like this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

; Array of values as strings
Global $aList_String[8] = ["1", "2", "3", "12", "134", "14", "256", "8"]
; And sorted as strings
_ArraySort($aList_String)

; Array of values as numbers
Global $aList_Number[8] = [1, 2, 3, 12, 134, 14, 256, 8]
; And sorted as numbers
_ArraySort($aList_Number)

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

; Create lists without the sort style
$cList_String = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 230, 300, BitOr($WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))
$cList_Number = GUICtrlCreateList("", 260, 10, 230, 300, BitOr($WS_BORDER, $WS_VSCROLL))

; Add items to the lists
For $i = 0 To 7
    GUICtrlSetData($cList_String, $aList_String[$i])
    GUICtrlSetData($cList_Number, $aList_Number[$i])
Next

$cDummy = GUICtrlCreateDummy()

GUISetState()

Local $aAccelKeys[1][2] = [["^c", $cDummy]]
GUISetAccelerators($aAccelKeys)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cDummy

            Switch _WinAPI_GetFocus()
                Case GUICtrlGetHandle($cList_String)
                    ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlRead($cList_String) & @CRLF)
                Case GUICtrlGetHandle($cList_Number)
                    ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlRead($cList_Number) & @CRLF)
            EndSwitch

    EndSwitch
WEnd
