Reaching out to Melba32

First of all, I just want to say that GUIListViewEx was a miracle when I found that UDF. It works perfectly in every way that I want it to. But I hope maybe you can help me with my script because I'm not sure what is causing the behavior it is exhibiting. I have included the UDF version of GUIListViewEx that I am using and my script. When you open the script you should be able to deduce that it is (or will be) a playlist editor for Media Player Classic. In the ListView you'll see that the first three columns contain the start time of a video file, the duration of the video in minutes and of course the title. Essentially, you just add media files with the Add button which is then added to the play list. As the list begin to build up you can also move selected files up or down per the side buttons or by drag and drop - all thanks to your wonderful UDF. As you may guess, the start times of each file are based on the start time of the previous file + the duration of minutes. So, if your initial start time is 12:00 PM and your first file is 90 minutes long, then the next file has a start time of 1:30 PM. Each time you add, delete or move a file up or down in the list, I have it updating (re-calculating) the start times for the refreshed play list. HOWEVER......

When I use the mouse to drag a file, in the list, to another position, when it drops, instead of updating the start times correctly, it sets them all to 12:00 (the initial start time). I am completely at a loss for why it does this. I know my scripting skills leave a lot to be desired and rest assured this is a VERY early version of this script. I am attempting this 1.) To set up and transport movies from my PC to projector setup in my back yard for outdoor movie nights. And 2.) Just to see if I can pull it off. That's always been the fun of AutoIt for me, to see if I can actually accomplish an idea no matter how crazy it sounds. As I say, I'm not sure what is causing this behavior; if it is something in the UDF itself or just my crappy programming skills so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Rix68,

Why did you not reach out directly to Melba23 in the last page of that topic?

You would have been better to do that and await his response.

I get the impression he may be away at the moment, possibly on holiday or just busy,

Your post here, might scroll out of sight and be missed by him when he returns.

He may also be monitoring that topic and receiving notifications.

P.S. Other users that visit that topic, may also be able to help you.

Many apologies. I'm still new at navigating web forums.

I'll give that topic a try in a couple of days. If he's here in America this is 4th of July weekend. He won't hear me over the fireworks :P

Rix68,

Who is this "Melba32" - anyone I know?

And I was indeed in the Americas over the weekend - but a bit further south than the ex-colonies and their celebration of the overthrow of their then legal government. Nowadays doing that could get you invaded by the very same people! But enough of these pleasantries....

The problem arises because there is nothing in your code (nor in the UDF) to let you know when a drag/drop event has occurred - so the _UpdateTimes function is never called when it does and the ListView is rewritten using the base time only. I have added a new function to the attached Beta version of the library so that such events can be detected - all you need to do is add something like this into your idle loop:

$sDrag = _GUIListViewEx_DragEvent() ; Only returns a value if a drag/drop event has occurred
If $sDrag Then
    _UpdateTimes()
EndIf

Now when a drag event is detected the function is called and the times are correctly updated (at least when I run my tests).

Here is the Beta you need to use:  

Please let me know if it works for you.

Rix68,

No offense taken at all - I just replied in what I thought was a jocular vein. Glad the modded UDF works - I will release a new version soon.

boththose,

Alas, no guns on my current steed - nor the range to get where I would need to fire them!
