Suggestion for _GUICtrlListBox_SetSel documentation

Recommended Posts


I think it's unclear how to use the $iSelect parameter on _GUICtrlListBox_SetSel.

All the help file states is:


Specifies how to set the selection.

However it's unclear which values it waits for. The default value is -1, but it is also unclear what that means. On my case, I was able to find out how to use this parameter after reading the function source code on the lib.

My suggestion is adding a remark:


$iSelect can be defined as:

  • True, for selecting the item
  • False, for unselecting the item
  • -1 (default), for toggling the item state

I know it's a bit too obvious (True/False), but mainly for begineers, it's hard to find out how to use that function only by reading the help file. Also, I think it's important to tell what -1 means, as actually it's told only for the $iIndex parameter for a global action (valid for all items on the list box, and not only to one item).

Thanks for your attention! :)
