_ArrayReverse & _ArrayToString woes

Recommended Posts

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!

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?


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

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

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
