ListView in a Tab

Recommended Posts

Anas

Hi,

I've a problem and a few questions about list view.

When I expand/collapse a group that causes the list view to add/remove a scrolling bar, the list view contents disappears and minimizing/restoring the window fix it.

- How can I fix the list view content disappearing without removing $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT.

 

Also, How can I:
- expand a collapsed group without applying $LVGS_NORMAL and $LVGS_COLLAPSIBLE separately (without calling  _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo twice)
- remove the empty space at the end of the list view when scrolled to the end.
- place the groups expand arrow on the left side.

 

Thanks.

#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("ListView in a Tab", 400, 250)
    GUICtrlCreateTab(1, 1, 400, 200)
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem('Tab')
    $LV = GUICtrlCreateListView("Column", 15, 35, 370, 150)
    ;$LV = GUICtrlCreateListView("Column", 15, 35, 370, 150, Default, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE) ;Works, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT removed.
    $BT1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Expand 1", 50, 210, 100, 30)
    $BT2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Expand 2", 250, 210, 100, 30)
    GUISetState()

    _GUICtrlListView_EnableGroupView($LV)
    _GUICtrlListView_InsertGroup($LV, -1, 1, "")
    _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo($LV, 1, "Group", 1, BitOR($LVGS_COLLAPSED, $LVGS_COLLAPSIBLE))
    For $i = 1 To 10
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item " & $i, $LV)
        ;_GUICtrlListView_AddItem($LV, "Item " & $i) ;Same problem
        _GUICtrlListView_SetItemGroupID($LV, $i-1, 1)
    Next

    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $msg

This is an issue with the tab control. Create a child window on top of the tab, and create the listview in the child window:

#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
  $hGui = GUICreate("ListView in a Tab", 500, 400)

  GUICtrlCreateTab(1, 1, 500, 300)
  GUICtrlCreateTabItem('Tab')
  GUICtrlCreateTabItem("") ; end tabitem definition
  GUISetState()

  $hChild = GUICreate( "", 400, 250, 20, 30, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGui )
  $LV = GUICtrlCreateListView("Column", 15, 35, 370, 150)
  $BT1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Expand", 50, 210, 100, 30)
  $BT2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Collapse", 250, 210, 100, 30)
  GUISetBkColor( 0xFFFFFF )
  GUISetState()

  _GUICtrlListView_EnableGroupView($LV)
  _GUICtrlListView_InsertGroup($LV, -1, 1, "")
  _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo($LV, 1, "Group", 1, $LVGS_COLLAPSED)
  _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo($LV, 1, "Group", 1, $LVGS_COLLAPSIBLE)

  For $i = 1 To 10
    ;GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item " & $i, $LV)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($LV, "Item " & $i) ;Same problem
    _GUICtrlListView_SetItemGroupID($LV, $i-1, 1)
  Next

  While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
      Case $BT1
        _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo($LV, 1, "Group", 1, $LVGS_NORMAL)
        _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo($LV, 1, "Group", 1, $LVGS_COLLAPSIBLE)
      Case $BT2
        _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo($LV, 1, "Group", 1, $LVGS_COLLAPSED)
        _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo($LV, 1, "Group", 1, $LVGS_COLLAPSIBLE)
      Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
  WEnd
  GUIDelete()
EndFunc

 

Both AutoIt and MicroSoft documentation states that the $LVGS-flags must be applied one by one.

Empty space. This seems more to be an issue related to the scrollbar, than to the listview. If you press the End key to go to last row there is no empty space. It seems as if the height of the group header is added to the max value of the scroll bar. But I don't think you can just decrease the max value of the scroll bar. If the listview contains 10 groups which are all collapsed, the scroll bar must still be able to scroll to the last group. Search the internet. If you can find a solution implemented in another language, we can also implement it in AutoIt.

Expand arrow on the left side. I don't think we have an AutoIt solution. If you can find information about the issue or maybe even an implementation, we can also implement it in AutoIt.

If you are interested, you can take a look at this thread to see how to catch expand/collapse events from the group.

Well, I already have a child GUI ... 7 of them actually (for nesting Tabs), this is going to be a mess, but if it's going to fix it...

I'll search for the rest and see if I find anything.

 

Thanks LarsJ.

      For fun, I'm building an app that opens a webpage and refreshes it every 30 seconds.
      But once the script performs _IEAction($oIE, "refresh"), the GUI closes.
      Any help is appreciated.

      I am tracking this topic by @LarsJ.  It is very advanced and overkill for what I am currently trying to do.
       
      Problem is this.
      Listview contains columns, one of which is right aligned and gets populated by float values, such as 123.99.  Some do not have decimals ie 124.00 and on sort gets truncated to 124.  Its obviously still the same value, but the display has reset.
      ; line below is for list VIEW ;..................................0.........1......2............ $cListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("CUSTOMER|AMOUNT|DESCRIPTION", 8, 152, 764, 279) GUICtrlSetBkColor($cListView, $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE) ; alternate between the listview background color and the listview item background color GUICtrlSetBkColor($cListView, $LVStdClr) ; Set the background color for the listview _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 0, 120) ; -- the client name _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 1, 90) ;-- the amount _GUICtrlListView_JustifyColumn($cListView, 1, 1) ; 1 - Text is right aligned _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 2, 200) ; the description What I am looking for is something native and simple like a 
          _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnFormat($cListView, 1, "%.2f") ;  1 - column is stringformatted to "%.2f"
      So that after each sort it will appear as it was in the original rendering.
      Is there something like this? I have not been able to find a simple solution.

      Thanks.

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.
