_ArrayDisplay column sorting?

Recommended Posts

TimRude

The help text for the _ArrayDisplay function says: "Clicking on a column header sort it."

I'm wondering why the sorting of hex numbers (specifically window handles like 0x12345678) is so wonky.

Sample script:

#include <Array.au3>
Local $aList = WinList()
_ArrayDisplay($aList)

Clicking on the Col1 header to sort by window handle doesn't properly sort the list.

As a workaround, I'm sorting the array by window handle before displaying it using _ArraySort. But I still wonder what's up with the ListView sorting.

Workaround:

#include <Array.au3>
Local $aList = WinList()
_ArraySort($aList, 0, 1, 0, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($aList)

Are you using a version from AutoIt < 3.3.12.x?

Sorry, I should have stated that in the initial post.

I'm using the latest release, 3.3.14.5.

      I am tracking this topic by @LarsJ.  It is very advanced and overkill for what I am currently trying to do.
       
      Problem is this.
      Listview contains columns, one of which is right aligned and gets populated by float values, such as 123.99.  Some do not have decimals ie 124.00 and on sort gets truncated to 124.  Its obviously still the same value, but the display has reset.
      ; line below is for list VIEW ;..................................0.........1......2............ $cListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("CUSTOMER|AMOUNT|DESCRIPTION", 8, 152, 764, 279) GUICtrlSetBkColor($cListView, $GUI_BKCOLOR_LV_ALTERNATE) ; alternate between the listview background color and the listview item background color GUICtrlSetBkColor($cListView, $LVStdClr) ; Set the background color for the listview _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 0, 120) ; -- the client name _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 1, 90) ;-- the amount _GUICtrlListView_JustifyColumn($cListView, 1, 1) ; 1 - Text is right aligned _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($cListView, 2, 200) ; the description What I am looking for is something native and simple like a 
          _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnFormat($cListView, 1, "%.2f") ;  1 - column is stringformatted to "%.2f"
      So that after each sort it will appear as it was in the original rendering.
      Is there something like this? I have not been able to find a simple solution.

      Thanks.

      I have a small script that checks if users from certain security groups exist or are disabled in AD. 
         For $j = Ubound ( $Users, 1 ) -1 To 0 Step -1       Switch _AD_IsObjectDisabled ( $Users[$j] )           Case 1             ClipPut ( $Users[$j] & " - account disabled; " )           Case 0             If @error = 1 Then                ClipPut ( $Users[$j] & " - account not found; " )             Else                ClipPut ( $Users[$j] & " - Ok; " )             EndIf       EndSwitch    $Clip = $Clip & @CRLF & ClipGet ()    Next   $Data[$O][1] = $Clip The code works correctly, at the end I have a 2D array $Data with security group in column 1 and checked user accounts in columns 2. However, _ArrayDisplay ( $Data ) shows users in one row, despite I added @CRLF. When I write $Clip to a text file, user accounts are written as column. Isn't it possible to have multiple-line cell split by @CRLF in _ArrayDisplay?

      I have a list of filenames and their versions and I want to sort them by the versions.  However, they always sort like they were just strings.  The version numbers can have up to 4 components (eg: 1.22.3.4).  I want version '1.2.7' to sort ahead of '1.12.7', and '1.8 alpha' to sort ahead of '1.8 beta'

      Here's my array of items to be sorted:
      1.5 alpha.22.1\filexxx 1.9\filexxx 1.8beta\filexxx 1.8alpha\filexxx 1.6\filexxx 1.62\filexxx 1.5-alpha.2.1\filexxx 1.2\filexxx 1.11-beta\filexxx I want the sorted list to look like this:
      1.2\filexxx 1.5-alpha.2.1\filexxx 1.5 alpha.22.1\filexxx 1.6\filexxx 1.62\filexxx 1.8alpha\filexxx 1.8beta\filexxx 1.9\filexxx 1.11-beta\filexxx But, what I end up with is this:
      1.2\filexxx 1.6\filexxx 1.9\filexxx 1.62\filexxx 1.8beta\filexxx 1.8alpha\filexxx 1.11-beta\filexxx 1.5 alpha.22.1\filexxx 1.5-alpha.2.1\filexxx Here is my test script:

      _ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Window Title", "1:", 0, Default, "Column") ; Expected results are rows 1 to the end of the array, all columns. The result is rows 0-1, all columns. The API reference is here:

      Am I doing something wrong?

      Hi, I have a 2D array with 2 columns, the 1st column contains a "version string" and the 2nd column contains a generic string. I want to sort it in the descending order so the latest version comes first.
      #include <Array.au3> Local $aVersionsAndReleases[4][2] = [["0.2.8.9", "Release #1"], ["0.2.9.10", "Release #3"], ["0.2.9.11", "Release #4"], ["0.2.8.10", "Release #2"]] _ArraySort($aVersionsAndReleases, 1) ConsoleWrite(_ArrayToString($aVersionsAndReleases, ' - ')) _ArrayDisplay($aVersionsAndReleases) Unfortunately, _ArraySort isn't working here . This is the output generated by the script:
      0.2.9.11 - Release #4 0.2.9.10 - Release #3 0.2.8.9 - Release #1 0.2.8.10 - Release #2 The expected result should be:
      0.2.9.11 - Release #4 0.2.9.10 - Release #3 0.2.8.10 - Release #2 0.2.8.9 - Release #1 I am looking to develop an function which does this... but I don't know where to start . Can someone help me get started? Thanks in Advance!
