Drag multiple files to list

4 posts in this topic

I am having difficulty dragging multiple files from an explorer window into a list.

I am using Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

I want to be able to make a list of PDF files. If I drag a file or files, it should add them to the list; if I drag a folder or folders, it should add the .pdf files within those folders.

The problem is that when I drag multiple files, it only adds one of them. The weird thing is I have been able to get this to work using an opendialogue, just not via the drag method. Any help would be much appreciated!

;--------------------------Here is some of the code:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <GuiList.au3>

;-----------------here is the gui create ilne

$AutoDivaForm = GUICreate("Bobbys DIVA Automatic Entry Script", 787, 500, 198, 134,-1,$WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)

;--------------------here is the create list line

global $SourceList=GUICtrlCreateList("", 0, 25,350,200,bitor($WS_HSCROLL,$ws_border,$ws_vscroll))

guictrlsetstate($SourceList,$GUI_DROPACCEPTED)

_GUICtrlListSetHorizontalExtent($sourcelist,1000)

GuiCtrlSetData(-1, "", "")

guisetonevent($GUI_EVENT_DROPPED,"drag")

;----------------------here is the drag function

func drag()

msgbox(0,"hi","you just dragged: "&@gui_dragfile) ;-----------this only shows a single file

if stringregexp(stringright(@gui_dragfile,4),"\.(.{3})",0)==1 Then ;---------this determines if a file or folder

;I don't know what to put here to account for multiple files

Else

addsourcefolder(@gui_dragfile)

EndIf

EndFunc

;--------------------here is the addsourcefolder function

func AddSourceFolder($source)

dim $source

dim $initialdir="c:\folder"

local $temparray=_filelisttoarray($source,"*.pdf")

_arraydelete($temparray,0)

local $x=0

;------------------------This loop just makes these full path names

while $x<ubound($temparray)

$temparray[$x]=$source&"\"&$temparray[$x]

_guictrllistadditem($SourceList,$temparray[$x])

$x=$x+1

WEnd

endfunc

Hi,

First of all please ue AutoIt tags ([autоit]code[/autоit])...

To get multiple files dropped, use this example...

GUIRegisterMsg(0x233, "WM_DROPFILES_FUNC")

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Drag to the List View some file(s)", 60, 20)

$ListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("Col1|Col2|Col3", 50, 50, 400, 300, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)

Thanks for the quick reply MsCreator! I would have replied sooner but spent the past few days in the hospital with some broken bones! I'm back in action although with only one hand working...

My only question is can this work in on event mode? I haven't really used the while loop msg style yet.

ps thanks for the folder tip!
