Small issue with Listview and TAB

5 posts in this topic

I'm trying to learn about GUI.

I created a TAB control, but I can't understand the difference between this:

#Region TAB
    $sLVI = "||"
    Local $idTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(110, 20, 132, 475, $TCS_BOTTOM)

    ; Add tabs
    _GUICtrlTab_SetMinTabWidth($idTab, 25)
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("1")
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("2")
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("3")
    GUICtrlCreateTabItem("") ; end tabitem definition
    #EndRegion TAB

and this:

#Region TAB
    $sLVI = "||"
    Local $idTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(110, 20, 132, 475, $TCS_BOTTOM)

    ; Add tabs
    _GUICtrlTab_SetMinTabWidth($idTab, 25)
    _GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($idTab, 0, "1")
    _GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($idTab, 2, "3")
    #EndRegion TAB

Then I'm trying to put this:

Global $hLV = GUICtrlCreateListView($sLVI, 110, 20, 100, 448, $LVS_NOCOLUMNHEADER)
    _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hLV, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES)
#Region TAB
    $sLVI = "||"
    Local $idTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(110, 20, 132, 475, $TCS_BOTTOM)

    ; Add tabs
    _GUICtrlTab_SetMinTabWidth($idTab, 25)
    _GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($idTab, 0, "1")
    Global $hLV = GUICtrlCreateListView($sLVI, 110, 20, 100, 448, $LVS_NOCOLUMNHEADER)
    _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hLV, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES)
    _GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($idTab, 1, "2")
    _GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($idTab, 2, "3")
    #EndRegion TAB

But no matter what TAB I press, the TAB change, but the listview follows.

 

But if I do this:

#Region TAB
    $sLVI = "||"
    Local $idTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(110, 20, 132, 475, $TCS_BOTTOM)

    ; Add tabs
    _GUICtrlTab_SetMinTabWidth($idTab, 25)
    _GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($idTab, 0, "1")
    Global $hLV = GUICtrlCreateListView($sLVI, 110, 20, 100, 448, $LVS_NOCOLUMNHEADER)
    _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($hLV, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES)  _GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($idTab, 1, "2")
    _GUICtrlTab_InsertItem($idTab, 2, "3")
    #EndRegion TAB

The TAB change and I get a "fresh" TAB.

 

Another question is.

I have a listview with 3 column.

How do I add numbers in the start and then move other content 1 down?

Do
        $idMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $idMsg
            Case $idTest0
                _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hLV, 0, $sNumber, 1)
            Case $idTest1
                _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($hlv,$sNumber,0)
        EndSwitch
    Until $idMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

 


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

Valnurat,

It is best to stick with either the native or the UDF functions - trying to mix them as in those snippets usually ends in tears, as you have discovered. Might I suggest reading the Tabs tutorial in the Wiki as that will explain why the ListView always appears.

And if you want to add ListView items at a specific row, you need _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem, not _AddItem. The Help file is your friend here - look through the ListView UDF commands.

Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:

Spoiler

ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Thank you for pointing me to the TAB link. It was useful. :)

How ever, you tell me to use _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem, not _AddItem.

How can I add text to the 2nd and 3rd column with _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem?

In the help for _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem it is suggested that I should use _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText, but I can't see how. Sorry.


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

_GUICtrlListView_InsertItem returns the index of the new inserted item. This index has to be used when updating the text for a subitem:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $idListview

    GUICreate("ListView Set Item Text", 400, 300)
    $idListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 2, 2, 394, 268)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    ; Add columns
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($idListview, "Items", 100)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($idListview, "SubItems", 100)

    ; Add items
    _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($idListview, "Item 1")
    _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($idListview, "Item 2")
    _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($idListview, "Item 3")

    ;Insert item
    Local $iIndex= _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem($idListview,'New Item with Index 1',1)
    _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText($idListview,$iIndex,'SubItem 1',1)

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Information", "Item 2 Text: " & _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($idListview, 1))

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    Do
    Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    GUIDelete()
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Ok. I see. But in this case I'm not interested in adding text in C1 and C2, only in C2.

So it could be done like this:

;Insert item
    Local $iIndex= _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem($idListview,'',1)
    _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText($idListview,$iIndex,'SubItem 1',1)

and this:

;Insert item
    _GUICtrlListView_InsertItem($idListview,'',1)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($idListview, 0, 'Test', 1)

As I always want the text be added to first row.

Or I'm i wrong?

Both exampels works, but is it the correct way to do it?


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

      Hi,
      i have a code which generates two numeric outputs.i have to save them in excel.
      Is there any way to export them to specific cells in excel???

      Howdy All
      I've gone around and around in circles wasting hours trying to fix this problem to no avail so I thought I would try posting for help given there are some real smart people in this forum.
      Background
      I have 5 separate .au3 scripts that all do different basic tasks. For example:
      1.au3 = opens Chrome browser to obtain information from a specific website then closes
      2.au3 = opens an Excel workbook to run a macro then saves and closes
      3.au3 = Open two seperate workbooks and transfers data from one to the other then saves and closes
      4.au3 = .......etc
      5.au3 = .......etc
      These 5 separate scripts, doing completely different tasks, need to each run once per day at 5 different designated times within a day and then close. For example:
      1.au3 = 10am
      2.au3 = 12pm
      3.au3 = 2pm
      4.au3 = 4pm
      5.au3 = 5pm
      Problem
      I can not get these different scripts to reliably run at their designated times. When I manually run these scripts individually by using 'Go F5' they work perfectly. If I convert these scripts to an .exe and manually run each one they work about 98% of time.
      How can I schedule these different .au3 files or associated .exe files to reliably run each day at different times?
      Attempts To Fix The Issue
      1. I have tried converting each .au3 script into their own .exe file and use Window's Task Scheduler to run these .exe files at their designated time but the success rate  of running each .exe in full, to completion, without error is very low at about 30%. Things that commonly go wrong include a browser not opening but movement still continues on the desk top. Other times things just do not happen at all.
      2. I have Windows 7 64 bit and have tried creating and running both (x86) and (x64) .exe files but again reliability problems exist;
      3. I have also tried moving each .exe file to the My Documents folder as I read someone that keeping your files on your desktop ties your files to individual Windows user profiles which can cause AutoIt operating errors. Not sure if this is correct but thought I would try it anyway. It did not fix my issue.
      4. I installed a program called AlwaysUp which supposedly always reliably runs in the background and will reliably execute your AutoIt script or .exe files. Still have significant reliability issues.
      Therefore, can someone please provide advice on how I can get my 5 different .au3 files to run at 5 designated times through the day, every day, without fail? Overtime I will be creating more and more different .au3 files to run certain tasks throughout the day and do not want to create one large AutoIt file that continually runs and attempts to do all the different tasks itself.
      Any help is very appreciated.
      Thanks
      Dan

      Hi all,
      I built an AutoIt application that interacts with several other applications/software. Now, it's turn to interfact with Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS).
      Does anyone has a blog, demo, script to share?

      0down votefavorite   In my current project, Excel macro open AutoIt script using a function Call Shell("location of autoit script").
      For proper functioning of AutoIt script it's need to be close parent Excel workbook, so this closing Excel action is written in AutoIt script itself.
      But as soon as AutoIt script close parent Excel workbook then script get pause and it do nothing.
      How open the AutoIt script from Excel workbook and after that parent Workbook get close?
