You can read the current selection in the list with GuiCtrlRead():

$Selection = GuiCtrlRead($List)

:D

The problem with StringTrimLeft() in that application is that you have to know how many characters to trim. Assuming the titles will be of different lengths, that could present a problem.

How about using a ListView instead, which gives you columns for the title and the path?

You could also sort of simulate a ListView with your list, since you are inserting a fixed seperator between the title and path, you could do a StringSplit on it. Say the seperator was {space}......{space} (an ellipsis of six dots with a space on each end). You could split it like this:

GUICtrlSetData($list, $prop &  " ...... " & $song)

; more code...

$Selection = GuiCtrlRead($List)
$SelSplit = StringSplit($Selection, " ...... ", 1) ; 1 = entire string for delim
$Selection = $SelSplit[2]

Another possibility is not store the path there in the first place (if the user doesn't need it to make the selection). Just keep the paths in a seperate array and get the one you need after the user picks a title.

Sounds like a New Topic to me...

Let this thread die and start a new one with your current conundrum.

:D
