Detect a check being placed in listview

Recommended Posts

I have a list view and using to build a Windows Profile management tool.

I am trying to detect when a check is placed in it so that I can highlight the row with a color, and preform the reverse when that is un-checked.

Here is what I have so far for the list view portion of the code:

; ###########################################################################
;  Step 7: Display and manage the GUI
; ##########################################################################

; GUI - Create Window and add first row with column names.
GUICreate("Profile Tool", $Width , $Height, -1, -1, -1, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX)
$ListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("   # |Profile Name        |Last Modified           | Profile Size      | Profile Type    |File Path          |Registry Path", 10, 10, $Width - 10, $Height - 100, -1, $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES)
_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($ListView, BitOR($LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES,$LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

; GUI - Create a line item for each profiles registry
For $i = 1 To $ProfileRegistry[0] Step 1
    $ListBox = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem(" " & $i & "|" & $ProfileNames[$i] & "|" & $ProfileDates[$i] & "|" & $ProfileSizes[$i] & "|" & $ProfileTypes[$i] & "|" & $ProfilePaths[$i] & "|" & $ProfileRegistry[$i], $ListView)
Next

;Button 1: Deselect All
$DeselectAll_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Desect All", 10, 690, 100, 25)

; Button 2: Select All
$SelectAll_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select All", 130, 690, 100, 25)

; Button 3: Select All Students
$SelectStudents_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select All Students", 250, 690, 100, 25)

; Button 4: Select Old Students
$SelectOldStudents_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select Older Students", 420, 690, 100, 25)

GUISetState()

Do
 $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
            Case $msg = $DeselectAll_Button

            For $i = 0 To $ProfileRegistry[0]
                _GUICtrlListView_SetItemChecked($ListView, $i, False)
                GUICtrlSetColor($ListView, 0x000000) ;Normal color
                GUISetState()
            Next

        Case $msg = $SelectAll_Button
            For $i = 0 To $ProfileRegistry[0]
                _GUICtrlListView_SetItemChecked($ListView, $i, True)
                GUICtrlSetColor($ListView, 0xff0000) ;Selected Color
                GUISetState()
            Next

        Case $msg = $SelectStudents_Button
            For $i = 0 To $ProfileRegistry[0]
                If $ProfileTypes[$i] = "Student" Then
                    GUICtrlSetColor($ListView, 0xff0000) ;Selected Color
                    _GUICtrlListView_SetItemChecked($ListView, $i - 1, True)
                EndIf
                GUISetState()
            Next

        Case $msg = $ListView
            MsgBox(0, "listview", "clicked=" & GUICtrlGetState($ListView), 2)
    EndSelect
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

EXIT

Thanks in advance!

aseitz,

The only way I know how to detect a ListView checkbox being actioned is to look for the $TVN_SELCHANGEDA or $TVN_SELCHANGEDW message within a WM_NOTIFY and then check the current state of the checkbox against what is was before (I use an array to hold the current checkbox states). Look in my ChooseFileFolder UDF (the link is in my sig) for some sample code.
