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
            Case $BT1
                _GUICtrlListView_SetGroupInfo($LV, 1, "Group", 1, BitOR($LVGS_NORMAL, $LVGS_COLLAPSIBLE))

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.

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

      Hello, 
      i have a Problem with  _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes, everything is working as excepted if u are on Windows 7.

      But if u are on Windows 10 the transparent background of a control is not clickable anymore. 

      Could someone help?

      Please see example below, put cmd.jpg into the same folder as Example.au3

      Please see trigger.jpg to see which sections are not clickable in Windows 10 (the red dots, the green dots are clickable) on Windows 7 the red ones and green ones are clickable.
       
      The same problem occurs if i use

      Hello everyones reading this post,
      I'm struggling at resizing properly my radio buttons to fit long text inside without affecting others radio buttons and also adjust position of them relative to the string.
      I tried with _StringSize UDF but I guess im too tired to figure out how to use it correctly..
      I also tried: _Control_SetWidth2Text I found on this forum, it work aslong im not maximizing GUI (radio text is gone when I maximize and maximize is a must)
       
      here is the code example, I hope someone can figure out (sorry if guictrlsetpos is not included in the example, I know thats probably the way to go but I wanted to make sure there is nothing better before use it)
      Thank you

      Hello,

      im searching like 6 hours and i didnt found the right solution.

      Im trying to build a treeview from a directory and its subfolders etc.

      This function give me right treeview, but i cant color each item seperated.

       
      #include <GuiTreeView.au3> $hGui = GUICreate("Demo1", 600, 400) $hTreeView = _GUICtrlTreeView_Create($hGui, 10, 10, 580, 380) GUISetState() _GUICtrlTreeView_BeginUpdate($hTreeView) ListFiles_ToTreeView(@ScriptDir, 0) _GUICtrlTreeView_EndUpdate($hTreeView) Do Until GUIGetMsg() = -3 Func ListFiles_ToTreeView($sSourceFolder, $hItem) Local $sFile ; Force a trailing \ If StringRight($sSourceFolder, 1) <> "\" Then $sSourceFolder &= "\" ; Start the search Local $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sSourceFolder & "*.*") ; If no files found then return If $hSearch = -1 Then Return ; This is where we break the recursive loop <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ; Now run through the contents of the folder While 1 ; Get next match $sFile = FileFindNextFile($hSearch) ; If no more files then close search handle and return If @error Then ExitLoop ; This is where we break the recursive loop <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ; Check if a folder If @extended Then ; If so then call the function recursively ListFiles_ToTreeView($sSourceFolder & $sFile, _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($hTreeView, $hItem, $sFile)) Else ; If a file than write path and name _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($hTreeView, $hItem, $sFile) EndIf WEnd ; Close search handle FileClose($hSearch) EndFunc ;==>ListFiles_ToTreeView
      So i am searching for the exact same function just with
      GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem
      instead of 
      _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild
       
      Ps: i have a folder structure where i like to color each item green if a file only exist once and red if it exist more than once.

      Could someone help?
       
      Solution:

      Title pretty much says it all. Im wondering what button the "primary mouse button" is, and while im here i would also like to know what the "secondary mouse button" is. I´m guessing its the left and right mouse buttons but i could not confirm this.
      Thank you!
