Find ID of Listview item by stringname

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys

This may be quite simple, but I haven't manage to solve it yet :/

All I want to do is get the ID of Xitem, so I can click it with " _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem" .

So I need to find the item based on the that fact that I know the text/string name of that item.

 

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

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("listview items", 300, 300, -1, -1)


    Local $idListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1", 10, 10, 200, 150) ;,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING)
    Local $idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("ID_of_Xitem?", 75, 170, 70, 20)
    Local $idItem1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Aitem", $idListview)
    Local $idItem2 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Xitem", $idListview)
    Local $idItem3 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Zitem", $idListview)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop

            Case $idButton

               MsgBox(0,"","ID of Xitem is ?")

               _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem($clv, ?)

        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

davis1337,

Do not forget that there is a ListView UDF as well as the native functions:

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

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("listview items", 300, 300, -1, -1)

    Local $idListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1", 10, 10, 200, 150) ;,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING)
    Local $idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("ID_of_Xitem?", 75, 170, 70, 20)
    Local $idItem1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Aitem", $idListview)
    Local $idItem2 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Xitem", $idListview)
    Local $idItem3 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Zitem", $idListview)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop

            Case $idButton
                $nID = _GUICtrlListView_FindText($idListview, "Xitem")
                MsgBox(0, "", "ID of Xitem is " & $nID)
                _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem($idListview, $nID)
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Thanks! I can't believe there was a native function that did exactly what I wanted!

I have searched so many threads, and tried so many weird things :) No idea why I didn't find the "_GUICtrlListView_FindText" function.

Anyway, thanks again!

david1337,

_GUICtrlListView_FindText is a UDF function, not a native one - just like the one you use to click the item.

Oh yeah sorry, what I meant was: can't believe that the "normal" GuiListView UDF had this function.
Anything that is not your GUIListViewEx UDF, is native to me :lol:

David1337,

Please note, _GUICtrlListView_FindText finds the first occurrence of the search text.

Hi kylomas

Thanks for the warning!
It's fine in my case though, as there can't be two identical items in my list.

      How can I filter out everything in a string except for text between specific tags, specifically between <title>Message title</title> and <body id="msgFeedSummaryBody" selected="false">Summary text</body>
       
      I also want to extract the URL, which is given three times:
           1. Message-Id: <https://www.linktopage.htm@localhost.localdomain>
           2. Content-Base: https://linktopage.htm (no closing tag for this, just a line feed with the next one beginning with “Content-Type: “)
           3. <base href="https://www.linktopage.htm">
       
      Having extracted the Message title, Summary text, and URL, I want to save that in one of various text files, with a prompt for user input giving me a way (such as entering a letter, word, or clicking a radio button; the latter is preferable) to specify which file.
       
      Here is the code I have so far:
       
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 4=advanced, -1 to -4=Nocase HotKeySet("^h", "_copy") While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func _copy() Send("^u") ; opens the message source of the news feed in my e-mail client (Thunderbird) showing all of the desired information Sleep(1000) Send("^a") ; select all of it Sleep(1000) Send("^c") ; copy it to clipboard EndFunc Now how can I filter the clipboard contents (as above), add to it (adding “-----------------------” as a separator, display it to the screen (for confirmation), and append it as plain text to one of several different files?
       
      Thank you!

      I got some hint of @ExitCode macro, but dont know how to use it to get the string in python variable 'res'.
      Please resolve this issue for me if anyone knows about this.

      Hey hello.
      I came here with maybe too specific questions about uncommon things, but as people says, I don't lose anything trying to asking here 
      There's long time that I have a little "experimental" idea: Use windows desktop and it icon system like old videogame consoles (where "sprites" are used to draw things on screen, can be manipulated/animated to make interesting things happen). Some of that inspiration came from another experiments from demoscene.
      Researching the possibilities of doing something like that (maybe not so intense) I found that the Windows Desktop uses a GuiListView to show and arrange icons (and of course, AutoIt provides UDF's for that  ). So, I'm used that UDF to create dummy icons (not putting files on Desktop, just modifiying the "GUI layer" of desktop for put non-working icons), setting custom values like coordinates, name and Icon (from a list of loaded icons in the GuiListView).  As you can see in next image works well in Windows XP... even in Windows 95 (that's not the case from Windows Vista to 10, but I already posted another question here about that... anyways, for now I'm working that with a isolated XP machine... sigh).

      Another video doing an animation with that:
      How I make that custom icons? Here:
      $hWnd = ControlGetHandle("Program Manager", "", "[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:1]") $newItem = _GUICtrlListView_AddItem ( $hWnd, "TEST", 32 ) ; with an icon of index 32 _GUICtrlListView_SetItemPosition ( $hWnd, $newItem, 300, 300 ) ; set some example property. Put in X=300 Y=300 Okay, so the next phase was changing the icons with custom ones. And here starts the issues. As AutoIT help says, icons from GuiListView came from a loaded GUIImageList, which, seeing past images I conclude that it's already preloaded with some sort of most used icons (something like an icon cache?). But If I modify it (or create another GUIImageList and then put into the GuiListView) the icons became corrupted and replaced with blank ones. (can be reverted deleting IconCache.db, just like when windows shows wrong icons in desktop).
      How I change icons? Here
      $hImage = _GUIImageList_Create(48, 48, 5) ; create an image list for 48x48 icons $newIcon = _GUIImageList_AddIcon($imageList, @SystemDir & "\shell32.dll", 110) ; just adding a new icon in the image list _GUICtrlListView_SetImageList($hWnd, $hImage, 0) ; $hwnd is the desktop hwnd Another option as workaround for setting icons was getting the desktop GUIImageList, and modifiyng it directly. I otbtain a GUIImageList handle, but ... without any images inside! (That's strange beacuse, when I set desktop item icons without altering the GUIImageList, it applies correctly). And finally if I try to add new ones, it returns -1 with @error setted.
      How I'm trying to get  desktop GUIImageList? Here.
      $imageList = _GUICtrlListView_GetImageList ( $hWnd, 0 ) MsgBox(0,_GUIImageList_GetImageCount ( $imageList ), $imageList) ; getting image count and GUIImageList handle $newIcon = _GUIImageList_AddIcon($imageList, @SystemDir & "\shell32.dll", 110) ; adding icons without success So, what is the question? There's something wrong I'm doing while trying to set the new icon set on desktop? Or desktop icons work in different way than the rest of the GuiListView's? Or there's something really stupid that I can't saw before that corrupts the icons? 
      Also... if there's not known solution for that, do you have some idea for doing a workaround for that? Or another crazy idea? (Maybe putting real files instead dummy icons could be a solution ... a very slow one). Or even maybe (maybe not, I sure about that xD) do you want to help with this "experiment".
      Thanks in advance, have a good day

      Hi guys,
      So I am facing an issue with my Listview control flickering like crazy when using the Modern GUI UDF.
      I understand that the reson is because Listviews do not play nice with the $WS_EX_COMPOSITED extended style which is necessary to prevent the rest of the GUI components flickering on resizing.
      I am looking for suggestions on how I can overcome the flickering issue without having to remove the Listview header (as I need the header to allow column resizing and sorting).
      The reproducer is here and the lightly modified Modern GUI UDF is attached as a zip (I added $WS_CLIPCHILDREN and $WS_EX_COMPOSITED to the _Metro_CreateGUI() function in order to stop flickering of other controls like buttons/labels/toggles etc).
      ;!Highly recommended for improved overall performance and responsiveness of the GUI effects etc.!
