How to set Tip on LV item?

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I would like to see "tip text" on every item of ListView when i hover them (text of current item content only, nothing else), but if possible, only if the text is can not be seen completly (the item line is to long) - Just like with TreeView controls.

For now i can not set tip at all, GuiCtrlSetTip() not work on ListView items, i don't realy know why :).

Thanks for any help.

It's possible but the only way I can do it is a bit messy. You find the coords of the mouse, work out the row and the column it's over and display the tooltip.

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

maybe you could use $LVS_EX_TRACKSELECT as part of the Listview ex_style then use

Global Const $LVNI_FOCUSED = 0x1 with GUIRegisterMsg()

I'm only stabbing in the dark and haven't tried it yet..

I was also looking at $LVS_EX_INFOTIP, but that only seems to show if the text extends past the column width,

also I didn't see a way to set the info tip with the text you want, it just displays the name that's not fully visable.

Cheers

Edit:

$LVS_EX_TRACKSELECT added as an ex style then you can get the id of any item moused over..

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiListView.au3>

;~ Global Const $LVS_EX_INFOTIP = 0x400
Global $Last

GUICreate("listview items",220,250, 100,200,-1)
GUISetBkColor (0x00E0FFFF)

$listview = GuiCtrlCreateListView ("col1  |col2|col3  ",10,10,200,150, -1, $LVS_EX_TRACKSELECT)
$button = GuiCtrlCreateButton ("Value?",75,170,70,20)
$item1=GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("item2|col22|col23",$listview)
$item2=GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("............item1|col12|col13",$listview)
$item3=GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("item3|col32|col33",$listview)
$input1=GuiCtrlCreateInput("",20,200, 150)

GuiSetState()

While 1
  $msg = GuiGetMsg ()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $msg = $button
            MsgBox(0,"listview item",GUICtrlRead(GUICtrlRead($listview)),2)
        Case $msg = $listview
            MsgBox(0,"listview", "clicked="& GuiCtrlGetState($listview),2)
    EndSelect
 
    If _GUICtrlListViewGetHotItem($listview) <> -1 And _GUICtrlListViewGetHotItem($listview) <> $Last Then
       $Last = _GUICtrlListViewGetHotItem($listview)
       ToolTip(_GUICtrlListViewGetItemText($listview, _GUICtrlListViewGetHotItem($listview))) 
    Elseif _GUICtrlListViewGetHotItem($listview) = -1 Then
       $Last = -1
       ToolTip("")
    EndIf
WEnd

This was a very non cpu friendly crude way , but I still think there'd be a better way using GUIRegisterMsg(), I just haven't worked out exactly how ...yet :)

Thanks smashly! you save me once again!

I have made from your example an UDF that can be puted in the main loop...

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiListView.au3>

Global $LastHotItem

GUICreate("Listview Set ToolTip Demo")

$ListView = GuiCtrlCreateListView ("Column 1|Column 2|Column 3 ", 10, 10, 380, 380)

For $i = 1 To 10
    GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("Item " & $i & "|SubItem " & $i & "|More SubItem " & $i, $ListView)
Next

GuiSetState()

While 1
    _GuiCtrlListViewSetToolTip($ListView, -1, $LastHotItem)
    Switch GuiGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _GuiCtrlListViewSetToolTip($ListView, $SubItem, ByRef $LastHotItemHotItem)
    Local $GetCurInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo()
    Local $GetHotItem = _GUICtrlListViewGetHotItem($ListView)
    
    If IsArray($GetCurInfo) And $GetCurInfo[4] <> $ListView Then
        ToolTip("")
        Return
    EndIf
    
    If $GetHotItem <> -1 And $GetHotItem <> $LastHotItem Then
        $LastHotItem = $GetHotItem
        ToolTip(_GUICtrlListViewGetItemText($ListView, $GetHotItem, $SubItem))
    ElseIf $GetHotItem = -1 Then
        $LastHotItem = -1
        ToolTip("")
    EndIf
EndFunc

Thanks again!

If you find a better way to do it, please tell me, i know that it can be done with no using the main loop, but for now this solution is working fine! :)
