FileFindFirst/NextFile and Gui

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to understand FileFindFirst/NextFile, by trying to get a listview GUI of the filenames of a directory

Because the Gui And the FileFind both need a loop to function, how do you incorporate the 2 together?

The helpfile example has no GUI

And trying to Sync it with AdLibEnable() doesn't seem to work either

Is there any other function I can use to get all Filenames within a directory

Ty as always

The GUI loops and the FindNextFile loops are separate. See the code below I just did for a combo box. Listbox should be the same.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("file list",220,250, 100,400,-1,$WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)

$combo=GUICtrlCreateCombo("",10, 10, 140,230)

FileChangeDir("C:\Mark")

$search = FileFindFirstFile("*.*")

$filestr="|"

; Check if the search was successful

If $search = -1 Then

MsgBox(0, "Error", "No files/directories matched the search pattern")

Exit

EndIf

While 1

$filestr = $filestr & FileFindNextFile($search) & "|"

If @error Then ExitLoop

WEnd

$filestr=StringTrimLeft($filestr,5)

$filestr=StringTrimRight($filestr,1)

$filearray=StringSplit($filestr,"|")

GUICtrlSetData($combo,$filestr,$filearray[2])

FileClose($search)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1

$msg = GuiGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

ExitLoop

EndSelect

WEnd

Exit

Ahh... I see now

Geez that was pretty obvious :"> :">

Probably shouldn't try to problem solve at 1:00AM

Thanks

Thanks for making me feel more stupid Val...

:whistle::)

I went through that tutorial like MONTHS ago, I can't remember the content of each lesson,

Maybe it's time for a refresher
