GUICtrlRead not returning an array with Advanced flag enabled

guicreate("test",300,300)
$TreeView=guictrlcreatetreeview(20,20,200,200,0x100)
$TV_Item1=guictrlcreatetreeviewitem("hello",$TreeView)
$TV_Item2=guictrlcreatetreeviewitem("world",$TreeView)
$Button=guictrlcreatebutton("ok",10,280)
global $data1[2]
guisetstate(@SW_SHOW)

while 1
   $msg = guigetmsg()
   Select
      case $msg=$b
         $data1=guictrlread($TreeView,1) ; Should be returning extended information
         $q=isarray($data1) ; Is returning 0, $data1 is not an array
         msgbox(0,"IsArray return",$q)
         msgbox(0,"",$data1[0])  ; crashes script
         msgbox(0,"",$data1[1])  ; crashes script
   EndSelect
WEnd

So I am trying to incorporate a TreeView into this script I am writing, so in a separate file here I have been playing with TreeView to see if it will give me the functionality I am looking for.

After consulting the help file, it seems that using GUICtrlRead($control_id, Advanced = 1) should give me the data I need.

However, after some debugging I've found that for some reason, GUICtrlRead is NOT returning an array value at all.

I'm stumped here. I have re-read the documentation and do not believe I am using these functions incorrectly. Why am I not getting an array return from GUICtrlRead? It simply gives me a variable containing the text of the item selected

GuiCtrlRead doesn't return an array. Even with the extended flag only the return value is being set. If you want both (the state/data and the extended data) then you have to call GuiCtrlRead twice (without and with the flag set).

Thank you, water!

I feel quite silly now. Now that I carefully look at the documentation for GUICtrlRead you are indeed correct. It does not say anything about returning an array. This helps a lot.
