I'm struggling with something I'm sure I've missed...:'(

I have a 1-dimensional array and I'm populating a ListBox using an _ArrayToString function within the GUICtrlSetData function.

If I perform an _ArrayReverse on the array before I execute the _ArrayToString function within the GUICtrlSetData, the list still populates in a sorted order.

If I do an _ArrayDisplay, it's showing to be reversed but when I populate the ListBox, it's still sorted!

_GetDirectoryListing()
_ArrayReverse($aMasterJobList)
_ArrayDisplay($aMasterJobList)
GUICtrlSetData($hJobList, _ArrayToString($aMasterJobList))

Am I missing a subtle (or not-so subtle) flag somewhere?

Why don't you try _GUICtrlListBox_InsertString() ? :)

 

Hi FrancescoDiMuro

Thank you for the reply and suggestion. I've done what you suggest and the ListBox still populates in a sorted manner.

Here is the code I've implemented. The _GetDirectoryListing() routine just pulls a file list from a local directory and puts each line into a globally defined, 1-dimensional array called  $aMasterJobList. I've tried reversing the array and populating it with the For/Next from 0 to UBound and as shown below without the _ArrayReverse.

Any idea?

_GetDirectoryListing()

;GUICtrlSetData($hJobList, _ArrayToString($aMasterJobList))

_GUICtrlListBox_BeginUpdate($hJobList)
For $iI = Ubound($aMasterJobList) - 1 to 0 step -1
    _GUICtrlListBox_AddString($hJobList, $aMasterJobList[$iI])
Next
_GUICtrlListBox_EndUpdate($hJobList)

You need to create your listbox without the default $LBS_SORT  style set. ListBoxes are set to sort by default, and you need to make sure that isn't set.

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.

      There is a _ArrayToString() but no _ArrayFromString().  ( searched in the forum and google )
      The example is based on the _ArrayToString() help file, to show the reconstruction of the array.

      I'm trying to populate a a list guide box with an array of data, but Ian can't seem to get it functional. I read another that said you needed to convert the array to a string prior to using guictrlsetdata and both array to string and guictrlsetdata use | as the delimiter I could do something like this:

      Guictrlsetdata($Resultlist, _arraytostring ($aresult) )

      But it did not work. I also tried to just view it in a massage box as well, but the arraytostring command keeps spitting out blanks. I've even tried to transpose the array (Thinking the vertical might be the issue because it's using @crlf as a delimiter).

      I've also tried a simpler array (I'm grabbing data from a dB using a ado connection) and it seems to work fine. I'm including my code for additional context.
