Today I'm working on listbox but there might be something that I'm missing...
I made a little script that allow the user to swap 2 items for the listbox. So the user select for example the 3rd item, press the button "Up" and it switch with the 2nd one, same with the "Down" button that switch with the 4th one.
But when I select the 3rd item and switch it the item become unselected and I would like to select it again after the manipulation :
As you can see in the comment of the script, _GUICtrlListBox_SetSel don't highlight/select them once the swap process is done..
What am I missing ?
I have read the Tutorial. Used the Help File and used an example script by @Melba23. I am still struggling.
To use GUIRegisterMsg one needs the following
a control in the GUI a GUIRegisterMsg instruction in the GUI to link the control to the WM_COMMAND function a Case statement in the Switch loop to run it a WM_COMMAND function and a processor function... Mine looks like this
;~ ; QuickSearch combo box $g_cbQwkSrch = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 8, 26, 180, 17) ; start blank GUICtrlSetTip($g_cbQwkSrch, "Type to search", "QuickSearch") GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "__WM_COMMAND_QWKSEARCH_CMB") ;------------------------------------ ; use in Switch Loop ;~ ; QuickSearch Case $g_cbQwkSrch ConsoleWrite("221 Case $g_cbQwkSrch" & @CRLF) ;-------------------------------------- Func _QwkSrch_Edit_Changed() ConsoleWrite("41 _QwkSrch_Edit_Changed" & @CRLF) ; Autocomplete the edit _GUICtrlComboBox_AutoComplete($g_cbQwkSrch) ; Change the label to match the autocompleted edit entry EndFunc ;==>_QwkSrch_Edit_Changed Func __WM_COMMAND_QWKSEARCH_CMB($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam) ; GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "__WM_COMMAND_QWKSEARCH_CMB") ConsoleWrite("50 _WM_COMMAND_QWKSEARCH_CMB fired " & @CRLF) Local $Found = '' #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg If $lParam = GUICtrlGetHandle($g_cbQwkSrch) And BitShift($wParam, 16) = $CBN_EDITCHANGE Then ; Our combo edit content has changed ; get data from source ---------------------------- Local $datafromsource = fFindFilesForQuickSearch($stringtofind) ; datafromsource convert to Combo friendly format ; Add data to combo _GUICtrlComboBox_BeginUpdate($g_cbQwkSrch) GUICtrlSetData($g_cbQwkSrch, $Found) _GUICtrlComboBox_EndUpdate($g_cbQwkSrch) EndIf _QwkSrch_Edit_Changed() ; Action this function EndIf EndFunc ;==>_WM_COMMAND_QWKSEARCH_CMB Func fFindFilesForQuickSearch($stringtofind) ; helper function for QuickSearch ; get data here Return $aResult EndFunc ;==>fFindFilesForQuickSearch Now the following:
Can I declare the variable $g_cbQwkSrch in Global, then use in multiple functions - reassigning different combo's to it as I go along? Should GUIRegisterMsg be expressly de-registered, or does that happen automatically at GuiDelete()? Where is the best/correct place to call GUIRegisterMsg? With the creation of its control, before the GUISetState, or before the start of the loop? The Help File contains this entry, what is the intent? Must this always be called with four args, or a max of four... !!! To make the user function workable you have to define it with maximum 4 function parameters otherwise the function won't be called !!!
I know there are listbox and listview, but now I have?
here is the video of infowindow
I tried to read mouse selection like for listbox:
$listWindow = "[CLASS:TFormResearchGR]" $topicsList = "[CLASS:TMWrapper; INSTANCE:255]" WinWait($listWindow, "", 60) $hdlWindow = WinGetHandle($listWindow) $hdlList = ControlGetHandle($hdlWindow, "", $topicsList) _GUICtrlListBox_ClickItem($hdlList, 0, "left") $countOfList = _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($hdlList) ConsoleWrite("Count of list: " & $countOfList & @LF) count of list is not working.
I realiezed that there are difference between listbox and listview, but this is something different.
and till now I never saw that you can go inside with infotool and also get instances.
so Im confused how to get the list number and the names of selection?
Best example I could find is here
The way I understand this, the standard Windows messages, such as Left/Right Click etc are covered by AutoIt macros, but the real power is locked up inside this WM_NOTIFY . I have tried, but I am not even sure I understand what I am looking at.
I need help understanding this. What I am looking for is Help file or Tutorial explaining how this works?
Perhaps if there is a script showing both the working of an AutoIt macro and the WM_NOTIFY in action, it would help.
Right now I am so lost, I do not even know what are the right questions to ask. One issue I have is on ListViews, how to combine the "Click" of a line with a standard Switch loop? Like users clicks a line, then get the loop to detect the click and ;do something ...
This is not a working example -- I'm asking about the principle...
Here we have the often seen code to detect a double-click on an item in one ListBox (ID in $idListBox is of course created by other code).
To catch that ListBox item, I have only added $sBookmark to it. This could be a pick list application.
$idListBox = 0x004A0FB0 GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "_WM_COMMAND") Func _WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam) #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg Local $hWndFrom, $iIDFrom, $iCode, $hWndListBox, _ $sBookmark If Not IsHWnd($idListBox) Then $hWndListBox = GUICtrlGetHandle($idListBox) $hWndFrom = $lParam $iIDFrom = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF) ; Low Word $iCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) ; Hi Word Switch $hWndFrom Case $idListBox, $hWndListBox $sBookmark = _GUICtrlListBox_GetText( $hWndFrom, _GUICtrlListBox_GetCurSel($hWndFrom) ) Switch $iCode Case $LBN_DBLCLK ConsoleWrite("you double-clicked " & $sBookmark & @CRLF) EndSwitch EndSwitch Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc
Now, my question is: can one modify the _WM_COMMAND function to allow for a dynamic number of ListBoxes? (meaning, user-defined -- the amount of ListBoxes/pick lists can change at any time).
Let's assume I dynamically obtained an array with ListBox ID's for (in this case) 5 pick lists:
One part of the solution seems to work with the For... Next loop I added below, but I'm wondering if that is the ultimate? (knowing this Func has to be as fast as possible)
The part where I can't find anything that works for a dynamic amount of ListBox ID's is in the Case check...
I tried _ArrayToTxt($aIdListBox, ", ", 1), messed with Eval(), and trying Case $aIdListBox[start] To $aIdListBox[end]
Func _WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam) #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg Local $hWndFrom, $iIDFrom, $iCode, $hWndListBox, _ $sBookmark For $i = 1 To UBound($aIdListBox) - 1 ; is this solution fast enough? (it seems to work well) If Not IsHWnd($aIdListBox[$i]) Then $hWndListBox = GUICtrlGetHandle($aIdListBox[$i]) ExitLoop ; cause there can only be one hit(?) EndIf Next $hWndFrom = $lParam $iIDFrom = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF) ; Low Word $iCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) ; Hi Word Switch $hWndFrom Case [WHAT TO PUT HERE if nr of ListBoxes is dynamic?], $hWndListBox ; <= MAIN question $sBookmark = _GUICtrlListBox_GetText( $hWndFrom, _GUICtrlListBox_GetCurSel($hWndFrom) ) Switch $iCode Case $LBN_DBLCLK ConsoleWrite("you double-clicked " & $sBookmark & @CRLF) EndSwitch Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc - - -
As a workaround, I can probably add the maximum number of allowed ListBoxes to the Case check, seperated by commas, but only display the number of ListBoxes needed. But I'm hoping it can be made truly dynamical...?
Thank You : )
