A shortlist of short List questions

Recommended Posts

Been using GUICtrlCreateList for the first time in the last few days and am wondering for how many currently perceived shortcomings I am still to blame... ;)

Been scanning some of the special settings here and there, but currently still wondering about these...

Even "yes" or "no" can be helpful. More is welcome if it saves me some hours  :)

1) When wanting to hilite a List item with the help of GUICtrlSetData ( $myList, data, $hiliteThisItem ), my impression is that this is not case sensitive? If not, can this be set to be so? [solved, if *not* using $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL only?]

2) Is it possible to have right-clicking an item also immediately making it the active item (highlight it)...?

3) Is manually dragging items for custom sorting possible?

4) While using my scroll wheel inside a List, I've been hearing some beeps, as if it wanted to tell me when I got to the edge of either end. However, it does not seem to work consistently and I don't want these sounds anyway. Are they from AutoIt and can I disable them?

5) Is it possible to multi-select items?  (à la Ctrl-click) [solved with $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL]

6) [non-List question] Is it possible that using the Return key inside a GUICtrlCreateInput field activates a Function?

Thanks for any tips!

Thanks & sorry..., there *was* a huge oversight on my part... :>

(5) is kinda solved now by including $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL

However...

I had solved (1) by using ...

$_idx = _GUICtrlListBox_FindString ($idList, $newItem, 1) ; find item (case sens.)
_GUICtrlListBox_SetCurSel(($idList, $_idx)

But after adding $LBS_EXTENDEDSEL the above scrollTo & hilite code does not work anymore... (and neither does the 'Default' parameter in GUICtrlSetData)

I figured by prepending a "Select none" to the prev. 2 lines it might work again, but it doesn't...

_GUICtrlListBox_SelectString ( $idList, "")

Is that a known limitation, or do I need to unset something else first...?

2) Yes. in the same manner as point 3) if not in other ways.

3) See Drag-and-drop reordering listbox. Note that subclassing is much easier implemented with the four functions SetWindowSubclass, GetWindowSubclass, RemoveWindowSubclass and DefSubclassProc (all implemented in WinAPIShellEx.au3) than with _WinAPI_SetWindowLong.

4) I have never heard beeps when I have used the scrool wheel in a listbox. I think it has something to do with your specific code.

Have you looked at GUICtrlCreateListView and the GuiListView UDF? A listview is an advanced version of a listbox. Because a listview natively supports more functionality than a listbox most of your questions are easier to implement for a listview than for a listbox. Also the forums contains many more questions/answers and code examples for listviews than for listboxes. GUIListViewEx is a very popular example.

6) This can be implemented with GUISetAccelerators.

Thank you Larsj! Very helpful  :)

Have you looked at GUICtrlCreateListView and the GuiListView UDF?

Just discovered it. When I looked at a Listview example yesterday it reminded me of Excel or _ArrayDisplay() and I was like "No, that's not what I need at the moment." But I will look at the UDF to see if it can be a simple box too.

 

6) This can be implemented with GUISetAccelerators.

I was figuring as much when running across that after my opening post. Good to have confirmation.

      Hi guys!, i have a problem to convert Python code to AutoIt code, in fact i had not coded with Python yet!, this code is about permutation a string's case, i will be happy with your comments :)❤;

      Python code:
       
      # Python code to print all permutations # with respect to cases # Function to generate permutations def permute(inp): n = len(inp) # Number of permutations is 2^n mx = 1 << n # Converting string to lower case inp = inp.lower() # Using all subsequences and permuting them for i in range(mx): # If j-th bit is set, we convert it to upper case combination = [k for k in inp] for j in range(n): if (((i >> j) & 1) == 1): combination[j] = inp[j].upper() temp = "" # Printing current combination for i in combination: temp += i print(temp), # Driver code permute("Hello") # This code is contributed by Sachin Bisht
      My code in AutoIt:
      ; https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/permute-string-changing-case/ _PermuteCase("ABC") Func _PermuteCase($sText) If StringRegExp($sText, "^[A-Za-z]{1,}$") Then Local $iLength = StringLen($sText) ; Get length of the text. Local $iMaxPerm = 2 ^ $iLength ; Number of permutations is 2^n Local $sLow_Text = StringLower($sText) ; Converting string to lower case Local $asChrs = StringToASCIIArray($sLow_Text) ; Split the text into array of chars. For $i = 1 To $iMaxPerm Step 1 For $j = 0 To $asChrs[0] ;................................................... Next Next Else Return SetError(-1, 0, "Error: Input is incorrect!") EndIf EndFunc ;==>_PermuteCase

      Hello all!
      i'm searching here, cause i do'nt know where else to search..
      I'm developing some projects, mainly intended to help Blind users of computers.
       
      I'm also blind, so my guis are Ok for Screen readers, but i'm not sure, if they are good also for normal users..
       
      So I¨m searching here for somebody, interested in Autoit, which have no problem to help me a bit with designating my apps.
       
      My apps are written in Czech language, so i prefer somebody from Czech republic..
       
      If somebody want to help me, don't hesitate to contact me personaly, contacts and my projects are available on web in my profile.
       
      So thank you for potential help and i'm sorry if i missed some forum etiquette rule here.
       
      I'm not sure how it works here with searching for interested people and then contact them personaly.

      Hi guys
      what i am trying to do is have My Gui LIve update Out of focus, so i can have this on a 2nd monitor streaming live updates while i continue to work on other screen, 
      i have been googling and looking at other threads about focus and stuff , but they do not seem to match what I'm after, 

      to be clear - i am not wanting to put focus on the GUI for it to auto update values, 
       
      if you have any positive feed back on the script while you read - i would be more then happy to accept - as im still building my Knowledge of this coding, 
      and stream line is always better Garbage code writing, 
       
      Kind regards 
      Gngnut

      Hi all,
      I've been looking around the forum and testing different ways of getting a 'drop zone' to work in my script, but I can't seem to get any response from the event listener. Code compiles perfectly. Chaning the control from a label to an input- or edit-field doesn't change its behaviour, still no response when a file is dropped on there...
      It might just be that I am overlooking a simple detail, so I'm hoping for an extra pair of eyes here or there who can spot why this isn't working as it should. 
      I have another 3500+ lines script where I have basically the same bit of code, and it seems to work in there without problems.
      So, here it goes:
      Global $DD_GUI = GUICreate("DicomDrop",200,200,-1,-1,BitOR($WS_SYSMENU,$WS_POPUP),$WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES) GUISetBkColor(0x030303,$DD_GUI) $DD_GUI_DRAGLABEL = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",0,0,32,32,-1, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG) $DD_GUI_DRAGIMAGE = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptFullPath,201,0,0,32,32) $DD_GUI_TITLELABEL = GUICtrlCreateLabel("DicomDrop",50,10,100,20,$SS_CENTER) GUICtrlSetFont($DD_GUI_TITLELABEL,8,$FW_SEMIBOLD,$GUI_FONTNORMAL,"Verdana") GUICtrlSetColor($DD_GUI_TITLELABEL,0xFFFFFF) $DD_GUI_CLOSE = GUICtrlCreateButton("X",174,4,24,24,$BS_FLAT) GUICtrlSetBkColor($DD_GUI_CLOSE,0x030303) GUICtrlSetColor($DD_GUI_CLOSE,0xFFFFFF) Global $DD_GUI_DROPZONE = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",10,42,180,148) GUICtrlSetState(-1,8) GUICtrlSetBkColor($DD_GUI_DROPZONE,0x181818) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$DD_GUI) Local $DD_MSG = 0 While 1 $DD_MSG = GUIGetMsg() Select Case $DD_MSG = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Debug -- Closed by GUI_EVENT_CLOSE") DD_EXIT() Case $DD_MSG = $GUI_EVENT_DROPPED If @GUI_DropId = $DD_GUI_DROPZONE Then Local $DroppedFile = @GUI_DragFile GUIDelete() ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Debug -- Dropped file : " & $DroppedFile) EndIf Case $DD_MSG = $DD_GUI_CLOSE ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Debug -- Closed by DD_GUI_CLOSEIMAGE") DD_EXIT() EndSelect WEnd Func DD_EXIT() GUIDelete($DD_GUI) Exit EndFunc If anyone has any idea whatsoever, please let me know 🙂
      Thanks in advance and kind regards,

      Hi AutoIters!
      Here is my new UDF about GUIs: it's an enhanced mixture of Advanced InputBox (deprecated) and KODA Parser (deprecated), with additional functions.
      What you can do with it:
      Parse KODA files and directly create GUIs (_GUIUtils_CreateFromKODA) Parse a simple JSON form definition to simply create advanced InputBoxes with any amount/type of input controls (_GUIUtils_CreateFromJSON) Created GUIs are returned as Scripting.Dictionary objects, and you have helper functions to access GUIs controls by their names (_GUIUtils_HWnd, _GUIUtils_CtrlID, _GUIUtils_HCtrl ...) A function that can make a GUI created from KODA/JSON (defined by it's $oForm object) and make it a modal InputDialogBox (just like InputBox, but returns all entered data as Scripting.Dictionary object) Functions are documented, and there are some examples.
      Consider this UDF as beta, but since I'm currently using it in a small commercial project, it should become production ready in near future.
      To always get the latest code version, get it from Github (more up to date than this topic).
      Update 04/02/2020:
      New simple application example Fixed focused control handling in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Reset input values before returning from _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed CloseOnEsc in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed Input not reset Fixed all ListBox items are selected Project now on GitHub https://github.com/matwachich/autoit-guiutils/
      Update 05/02/2020:
      Support for nodate for Date and Time input controls (pass null value) New handling of focused control _GUIUtils_InputDialog: Now, you can specify the focused control in $oInitialData by setting "controlName:focus" = True Updated documentation of _GUIUtils_InputDialog Update 07/02/2020:
      Bug corrected when setting Data input control Added: abillity to read a single input control New functions (_GUIUtils_GetInputs, _GUIUtils_WriteInputs), documentation completion. Readme file and screenshots on Github Page
