Issues with GUIImageList from desktop GUICtrlListView

1 post in this topic

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 all,
      I'm trying to create a listview with subitem icons and I achieved this by simply rearranging the order of the columns, so that the first column is in the middle, thus appearing as a subitem with an icon - this method prevents the "icon clipping" that happens when using subitem icons in a listview. My issue is that when I select a row that does not have an icon, the space where the icon would be is white. Is there a way to make this transparent, so it looks like the entire row is selected?
      Here's an example - click the second listview item/row to see a blank space where the icon would be.
      #include <GuiConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListView.au3> #include <GuiImageList.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> _Main() Func _Main() Local $hGui, $listview, $hImage Local $iLV_EXStyle_NoChecks = BitOR($LVS_EX_GRIDLINES, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT, $LVS_EX_SUBITEMIMAGES, $LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_HEADERDRAGDROP) $hGui = GUICreate("Listview Test With Icons", 400, 300) $listview = GUICtrlCreateListView("Col 1|Col 2|Col 3", 2, 2, 394, 268, BitOR($LVS_REPORT, $LVS_SHAREIMAGELISTS)) _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($listview, $iLV_EXStyle_NoChecks) GUISetState() ; Create the image list $hImage = _GUIImageList_Create(16, 16, 5, 3) _GUIImageList_AddIcon($hImage, @SystemDir & "\shell32.dll", 165) _GUICtrlListView_SetImageList($listview, $hImage, 1) ; Set the order so the first column is moved to the middle, ; acting like a subitem with an icon _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnOrder($listview, "1|0|2") ; Add the items GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item1|Item2|Item3", $listview) GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item4|Item5|Item6", $listview) ; Set an icon for just the first item _GUICtrlListView_SetItemImage($listview, 0, 0) Do Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete() EndFunc ;==>_Main

      Greetings forum,
      Hi develop this script, to use context menu with listview.
      It's work fine, run and click with left or right mouse button, you see on Console the id from item.
      If you click none, the id is -1, like this:
      $NM_RCLICK[-1] $NM_RCLICK[-1] $NM_RCLICK[2] $NM_RCLICK[1] $NM_RCLICK[0] $NM_RCLICK[1] That is correct.
      But if you uncoment the line:
      GUIRegisterMsg($WM_CONTEXTMENU, "WM_CONTEXTMENU")
      You have to click with left button (over item or none) and after click with right button.
      LeftButton is to update $HOSTS_INDEX.
      RightButton is to open ContextMenu.
       
      Exist another way to update $HOSTS_INDEX?
      Example:
      Call WM_NOTIFY every time WM_CONTEXTMENU is called?
      I ask this, becouse i cant understanding why $HOSTS_INDEX is not updated when WM_CONTEXTMENU is uncomented.
      Someone can explain or help me?
       
      Best regards.

      Hi,
      I am struggling converting my 1D array to a 2D array and then showing that in my List View. Below is my current code, where I would like to take the array from the input box, and have that displayed as a list within the list view this is a list of computer names, and then update the 2nd column of each line once I have ran a ping and a registry change on each computer name, with either 'Completed' and 'Failed'
      I have checked out the AutoIt Arrays page here: https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Arrays , but unfortunately I cannot get my head around it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      I hope this makes sense.
      Thanks

      Hi guys!! I'm going crazy... please help me -.-
      First, open the attached screenshot. Second: I'd like to grab info from external window. The program is "Metatrader4", a tool for trading and charts analysis.
      The function _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText() return an empty string! I tried to change the index $index (the second parameter) into Number($index), as recommended by other similar posts in this forum, but this did not solve my problem 
      Well, why I'm going mad? Because in my mind an UDF approach works great or it does not work at all; instead, in my code something works and something else does not. I really don't understand why... and you?
      THXX!!!!  
      $handle=ControlGetHandle("Expert - "&$expertname,"",1383);List: Variable|Value For $i=0 To _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($handle)-1;WORKS!!! $temp=_GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($handle,0+$i);RETURN EMPTY STRING :-( MsgBox(0, "", $temp) $temp = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($handle,$i);WORKS!!! MsgBox(0, "", $temp) Next
