I am using your ListView Editing scripts, and I love it! Thank you so much for sharing this.

One thing I am trying to modify is to trap the TAB key in Edit mode, save the current Input, and focus on the next field to the right, opening it in Edit mode. If we are at the right-most field, then just act like the ENTER key was pressed. I have been through your scripts over and over, trying different ways, but I can't seem to capture the TAB key and make this happen. Any ideas on how to go about this?


Thanks in advance for your assistance!

I changed some functions and wrote some new, now its possible, what you want to do :)

    __ListViewEditInput_InitializeKeys: Its now possile to add an Array with Accelerators when initializing
    __ListViewEditInput_WM_NOTIFY: outsourced Quellcode to another Function (__ListViewEditInput__EditItem)
    __ListViewEditInput_GetEditedCell: Returns the Ctrl,index and subindex of last edited/actual editing cell
    __ListViewEditInput__EditItem: Set Cell to edit, needs listviewcontrol, itemindex and subitemindex

For testing I wrote an Example.

Interesting for you is Line 14-16 and 45-52

Hello again.

I reworked this UDF with maps and structs and a more simple way to interact with.

It now supports switching to the next cell with "TAB". Cancel with "ESC" and save with "ENTER" still works.

I updated the start post :)

PS: When changing the edited cell with the "Tab" key; the visuals of the cell are not correct until the mouse is moved over the cell... I have no idea what is happening there and tried to mitigate that with a window redraw of the area; Its better, but the focus color and the selection are not displayed correctly. Maybe someone has an idea, what to do about that.

Hello @Kanashius

Thank you for your effort.

I need to only edit the third column. So, I used your example and made the below change. I'm still able edit column zero. Thoughts?

;__ListViewEditInput_ListViewAdd($hGui, $iListView, "0,1,2")
__ListViewEditInput_ListViewAdd($hGui, $iListView, "2")

I think I found the issue/resolution.

In the Return line, surround $iSubIndex with a String function. Also, surround $iIndex with a String function as well.

After the change, row 0 and col 0 are not editable unless included in the list.

Func __ListViewEditInput_isCellEditable($hListview, $iIndex, $iSubIndex)
    If Not IsHWnd($hListView) Then $hListView = GUICtrlGetHandle($hListView)
    If MapExists($__ListViewEditInput_arListViews, $hListview) Then
        Local $pListViewData = $__ListViewEditInput_arListViews[$hListview]
        Return ($pListViewData.allCols Or _ArraySearch(StringSplit($pListViewData.cols, ",", 1+2), String($iSubIndex))>=0) And _
               ($pListViewData.allRows Or _ArraySearch(StringSplit($pListViewData.rows, ",", 1+2), String($iIndex))>=0)
    return False
