Storing CheckBox States within ListView

Recommended Posts


I have an array of CheckBoxes and I want to store the state of these within a ListView. Not sure of the best way to do this but was thinking I might use a string that has a 0 or a 1 for each character position but cant work out how to index a string as an array with autoit.

I wanted to end up with a string value that I can store in my ListView that looks like this the following 000000000000 representing a single character (0 or 1) for each of my 12 checkboxes.

Any advice appreciated...

Use GUICtrlRead in a loop to get the state of the Checkboxes (beware - the return will NOT be 0/1) and once converted, concatenate the results into a single string.


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______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

OK that works now - again thank you. I was comparing the GUICtrlRead result with a 1 or a 0 rather than $GUI_CHECKED and GUI_UNCHECKED..
