SelectString LIKE in ControlListView


Go to solution Solved by LukasChury,

in classic ComboBox I can select value by string:

ControlCommand($hWnd, "", "[CLASSNN:ThunderRT6ComboBox13]", "SelectString", "ValueIwantToSelect")

But if I have ListBox (or ListView/ListView32?), I cant use "SelectString" method, i can only use:

ControlListView($hWnd, "", "[CLASSNN:ThunderRT6ComboBox13]", "Select", 5)

... where I select a value, which is fifth in order.

But how select by value? How can I select value by string in ListView32?

In function reference there are no function "SelectString", only "Select".

Thank you.

You can use "FindItem" which should return the position of an item based on string value. Then you  can use "Select" with that position.

I propably dont know, how to use it...

I have this: So, I know the ClassnameNN.


In code I have:

Local $hWnd = WinWait("Laser", "", 0)
$hernimodid = ControlListView ($hWnd, "", "[CLASSNN:ListView20WndClass5]", "FindItem", "D - Thor")
ControlListView ($hWnd, "", "[CLASSNN:ListView20WndClass5]", "Select", $hernimodid)

But variable $hernimodid is '-1', so FindItem cant find this Item...

This code works, so problem is with the "FindItem": (this code select Item 6 in order - as it count from 0)

ControlListView ($hWnd, "", "[CLASSNN:ListView20WndClass5]", "Select", 5)

Any tips?


EDIT: After search on this forum, in one topic a member say:


Also, the "FindItem" action doesn't work on Win64. You never mentioned your OS, and the GUI looks skinned, so I thought I would mention it.

So, if I have Win64...? (of course I have, who not in these day 🙂 ) Is that problem?

Look at _guictrllistview_findtext and _guictrllistview_setitemselected

Thank you! 🙂 Works like a charm.

Final code, that works - for everyone, who would like this too:

#Include <GuiListView.au3>
Local $hWnd = WinActivate("TitleOfTargetWindow")
$handle = ControlGetHandle("TitleOfTargetWindow", "", "[CLASSNN:ListView20WndClass5]")
$i = _GUICtrlListView_FindText ($handle, "TextIwantToFind")

ControlListView ($hWnd, "", "[CLASSNN:ListView20WndClass5]", "Select", $i)
