How to get focused ListView Item?

9 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Again my problem is around the ListView controls ;) (what can i say/do, i love it and that's it :) )...

I have notice that there is no(?) actualy function/method to get the currently focused (not selected) item, something like _GuiCtrlListViewGetItemFocuse() will be greate!

I need to "remember" the last focused item (index of it) before i do some stuff with them (these "stuff" involves selection of items etc.), and then i need to set the focus back (for that one i can use _GUICtrlListViewSetItemSelState()).

Is it possible?

Thanks.

This is a direct copy/paste from the MANUAL... you might want to read it throughly mate.

_GUICtrlListViewGetCurSel returns the selected item whether the control has focus or not. But maybe I'm not understanding what you're asking.

The hot item (in previous post) is just the one under the cursor.

Thanks guys, but i need the focused item, not hovered and not selected, just focused.

_GUICtrlListViewGetCurSel returns the selected item whether the control has focus or not

Well i need to check if it has focus, whether the control has selection or not :)

Seems to become a quiz game, or?

Also if I think it doesn't help you very much. Direkt from Auto3Lib help: _ListView_GetItemFocused.

Perhaps you describe simple what you want to do. It seems not to be clear, what you understand under focus in a listview.

Thanks, but this func check if some known item has focus, and i need to check unknown item (return the one that focused).

Perhaps you describe simple what you want to do

I want to be able select and then unselect items, but preserve the focus of the last selected (by user) item.

what you understand under focus in a listview

If you work with WM-Notify (LV-onclick) you could save the selected, then you have always the last selected(focused) item.

Good luck, Reinhard
