List: items with same name

Recommended Posts

Below is a slightly modified example from the GUICtrlRead help:
 

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

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("My GUICtrlRead") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    Local $idList = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 200, 300, 0x1000)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "dog|dog|dog|cat|dog|cat|cat|dog|cat|cat", "dog")

    Local $idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read", 10, 350, 50)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_FOCUS) ; the focus is on this button

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box

    Local $idMsg, $iMenustate, $sMenutext
    ; Loop until the user exits.
    Do
        $idMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $idMsg = $idButton Then
            $selected = GUICtrlRead($idList, 0)
            $extended = GUICtrlRead($idList, 1)
            MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Selected", "Selected:" & $selected & @CRLF & "Extended:"&$extended) ; display the selected listbox entry
        EndIf
    Until $idMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
EndFunc   ;==>Example

If my list contains multiple occurance of the same word, in the above example: dog and cat appearing multiple times, sorted or not, how can I determine if the user selected the 1st DOG or the 3rd DOG instance? Is there a way to get from GUICtrlRead a number pertaining to the order of the selected item?

Burgaud,

_GUICtrlListBox_GetSel should provide the required information. But if all the items are the same why does it matter which one is selected?

M23,

What I am trying to do is something like this:

I got an array of NAMES. This goes into List#1

Each name corresponds to an ADDRESS that goes into LIST#2 and TRANSACTION that goes into LIST#3

Able to determine if I am referring to first DOG, or 2nd DOG is important because transactions and address matters.

OK but then how do the user(s) choose between Joe, Joe and Joe appearing in the list?

Then why not list enough information in the ListView to make selection unambiguous, hence easier, faster and less prone to error?

Am I reading that post correctly? You want to dump name and address into a single line per person for all persons inside a single List?

I am not sure if that is how the phonebook works these days... must be the new norm for 2018..

Then do how you want it to work.

Burgaud,

I must say I agree with jchd - a ListView with some additional information to help the user make a choice would seem to be a much better way to go. And you could keep the other address and transaction data in hidden columns within the ListView, which would make the actual index chosen by the user completely moot.

Yes, that, insisting on "some additional information", not everything recorded for that person.

I again apologize for posting a remark which doesn't directly answer your initial question.

Another way to achieve such a selection in cases where the source is somehow big (e.g. a large phonebook):
Create an input box and a listview (can be initially empty)
Monitor the input and for each new character entered there, and display the plausible entries in the listview along some info (e.g. ZIP code ou city or something the user can easily check, depending on context). There are several examples in the forum for monitoring an inputbox on character basis and invoking a function every new char.
After just 3 or so chars entered, the list begins to be very restrictive and workable.

Burgaud,

An example of an "autocomplete" list which jchd mentioned above.
