Listview column header text (NOT GUI)

Recommended Posts


This seems an obvious question but havent been able to find a similar question nor answer. How to get the text values from the column headers within a listview (NOT GUI)?

PaulIA's Auto3Lib library of AutoIt functions contains _ListView_GetColumn, which should do this for you. Once you have it installed, dissect his "Listview 1.au3" example script to see how it works.

You actually have to use both A3LListView.au3 AND A3LHeader.au3:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <A3LHeader.au3>
#include <A3LListView.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("ListView Edit Lable", 400, 300)
$ListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("col1|col2|col3", 10, 10, 380, 240)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line1|data1|more1", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line2|data2|more2", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line3|data3|more3", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line4|data4|more4", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("line5|data5|more5", $ListView)
$Btn_Header = GUICtrlCreateButton("Header", 150, 260, 100, 30)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $Btn_Header
            $hListView = ControlGetHandle($hGUI, "", $ListView)
            $iColCnt = _ListView_GetColumnCount ($hListView)
            ConsoleWrite("Debug: $iColCnt = " & $iColCnt & @LF)
            $hHeader = _ListView_GetHeader ($hListView)
            $sMsg = "ListView Column Headers:" & @CRLF
            For $i = 0 To $iColCnt - 1
                $sMsg &= @CRLF & $i & ": " & _Header_GetItemText ($hHeader, $i)
            MsgBox(64, "Results", $sMsg)
