Sorry there was originally 3 columns. But issue still is apparent?  When I click any of the list view items. Wm_notify says it's index 0 no matter which item I click

Works for me when you correct this line.

GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($x & "|" & $x + 1 , $listview)

Your script won't even display anything so I'm not sure you're testing this before you post it.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I am using anow older version 3.3.12 which may be why?   Not sure why you aren't seeing anything displayed. Works for me. I'll try again when I get home. Thanks
