Alternate colour on list view rows

10 posts in this topic

I am attempting to add colour to alternate rows on my Gui List View.  this would simply be row 1 is white, Row 2 is blue, row 3 white, row 4 blue etc.

I have found the following UDF 'LV_Format_include1.3.au3' which I am struggling to get working on a simple gui and listview that does not belong to the example it provides.

Has anyone successfully applied alternate background colours to a listview.

Exactly what I am looking for.  V. surprised I did not find this on my searches as it is bang on what I need.  does it still work if you resort the results by a different column.

 

Thanks

Since the last upgrade of the forum software the search function is ... ehm ... terrible.
Sorting the rows does not change the coloring.

Would you know how to incorporate the same thing while using Melba23`s GuiListViewEx udf.   Trying to identify how the controls work to make the same thing happen.

I have never used melba's UDF, but:

You need to locate the GUICtrlCreateListView statement and append the following lines:

GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE) ; alternate between the listview background color and the listview item background color
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xDDEEFF) ; Set the background color for the listview

then after each GUICtrlCreateListViewItem statement append the following line:

GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFCF6EA) ; Set the background color for the listview item

Looking at Melba23 examples I can see a similar function to the one you are using Water so maybe this type of listview function is not compatible with GUICtrlCreateListView statement

 

This is how I create the list view using the _GUICtrlListView_Create statement which may be an alternative to GUICtrlCreateListView 

Func MakeGui()

    $hGUI = GUICreate("Results", 800, 800)
    ;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ; Create Right ListView
    ;GUICtrlCreateLabel("UDF ListView" & @CRLF & "Single sel - count element - editable (all)", 430, 5, 300, 30)
    $hListView_Right = _GUICtrlListView_Create($hGUI, "", 20, 40, 500, 300, BitOR($LVS_DEFAULT, $WS_BORDER))
    _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hListView_Right, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT)

                        ; Column Index      Type
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($hListView_Right, "First Name", 83)                          ;0              Static
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($hListView_Right, "Last Name", 83)                           ;1              Static
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($hListView_Right, "Result", 83)                          ;2              Combo
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($hListView_Right, "Reason", 83)                  ;3              Combo
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($hListView_Right, "Action", 83)      ;4              Combo
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($hListView_Right, "Complete", 83)                ;5              FreeTxt
    _GUICtrlListView_SetTextBkColor($hListView_Right, 0xFFFFFF)
    ;_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth ( $hListView_Right, 0, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER  )
    ;_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth ( $hListView_Right, 1, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER  )
    ;_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth ( $hListView_Right, 2, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER  )
    _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth ( $hListView_Right, 3, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER  )
    _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth ( $hListView_Right, 4, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER  )
    _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth ( $hListView_Right, 5, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER  )

Never played with the UDF. I think best would be to ask the author - Melba23.

bouny,

There is no conflict between the alternate colour lines and my UDF, but you cannot use the "GUICtrlSetBkColor(##, $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE)" line on a ListView created with the _GUICtrlListView_Create UDF function. Is there some reason you are using a UDF-created ListView rather then using the native GUICtrlCreateListView function? It is usually advisable to use the native functions if possible.
