Listview data update - if array is changed

Recommended Posts


I have a script were I have a GUI with a listview. The data from listview is from an 2D array (a table from mysql query).

When I start the script, I want to have the listview with the 2D array and then to check each 2 sec if the table if change then to also change the data from listview. If the data from table is the same with the data from listview, then do nothing.

I tried all sort of things but I cannot get the script working as I want.


This is the part of the script that add array to listview:

$linterogare = "SELECT * FROM `tichete` WHERE control_id<3 ORDER BY `prioritate` ASC" 

        $laOk = _EzMySql_GetTable2d($linterogare)
        $error = @error
        If Not IsArray($laOk) Then MsgBox(0, $stMySqlStatement & " error", $error)
        Global $date = $laOk

        _GUICtrlListView_SetItemCount($lista, 5000)
        _GUICtrlListView_AddArray($listatickete, $date)
        Sleep (1500)
        ;_GUICtrlListView_DeleteItem($listatickete, 0) ; sterge primu element (colum header)
        $linterogare = "SELECT * FROM `tichete` WHERE control_id<3 ORDER BY `prioritate` ASC" 
        $laOk1 = _EzMySql_GetTable2d($linterogare)
        ;If not $laOk1 = $date Then 
        ;MsgBox (0, "NIMIC NOU", "fdfds")
        ;_GUICtrlListView_SetItemCount($lista, 5000)
        ;_GUICtrlListView_AddArray($listatickete, $laOk1)
        _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems($listatickete) ;sterge toate itemele din lista
        ;MsgBox (0, "fdfsdfds", "fdfds")

What you see with ; is what I tried to do. First I thought that is good to compare the data that was sent to listview with a new SQL query. If the value of array is the same, then do nothing, else send the new data to the listview.


With the script from above, the data from listview is deleted each 1,5 sec and new data is added. (no matter if is the same).


Any ideas how I can update the data from the listview ONLY if the data from mysql is changed?

Please do not send PMs asking for help as the Forum rules specifically prohibit this for 2 reasons:

  • The forum is here to help everyone - if you get private help then no-one else can benefit.
  • Do you have any idea how many PMs asking for help people like me get despite that rule?  Answer: a great deal!

So please do not do it again.

Here is an example of how I would go about checking whether the data had changed:

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

Local $aLastQuery[1][1]

$nBegin = TimerInit()

While 1

    ; Every 2 secs
    If TimerDiff($nBegin) > 2000 Then
        ; Get the latest data in array form
        $linterogare = "SELECT * FROM `tichete` WHERE control_id<3 ORDER BY `prioritate` ASC" 
        $laOk = _EzMySql_GetTable2d($linterogare)
        $error = @error
        If Not IsArray($laOk) Then MsgBox(0, $stMySqlStatement & " error", $error)
        ; Clear flag
        $fArrayChanged = False
        ; Check if arrays sizes are identical
        If UBound($laOk) <> UBound($aLastQuery) Or If UBound($laOk, 2) <> UBound($aLastQuery, 2) Then
            ; There is a change in size
            $fArrayChanged = True
            ; Same size so look at each individual element
            For $i = 0 To UBound($laOk) - 1
                For $j = 0 To UBound($laOk, 2) - 1
                    If $laOk[$i][$j] <> $aLastQuery[$i][$j] Then
                        ; Element has changed
                        $fArrayChanged = True
                        ; No point in looking further
                        ExitLoop 2
        ; Has array changed?
        If $fArrayChanged Then
            ; Here you clear the existing ListView and load the new data from $laOK
            ; Now save the new array for the next comparison
            $aLastQuery = $laOk
        ; Reset the timestamp to wait another 2 secs
        $nBegin = TimerInit()

Func _Exit()
