Remove Arrows from Headers

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

How do I remove an arrow (possibly with _GUICtrlHeader_SetItemFlags() ) in a column header item. For instance, Windows Explorer has a column with an arrow and I want to remove it.

Does this make sense?

_GUICtrlHeader_SetItemFlags() basically doesn't have a remove arrow just a draw it in different directions.

ANSWER

Thanks Gary!

I think it would have to be _GUIImageList_Destroy, but not sure you can do that on system control. Might even crash explorer.

Well, I don't want to destroy the header or the listview. I am just wanting to remove/undraw a drawn arrow.

The manual says for the setItemFlag

4 - Draws a down arrow on this item

8 - Draws a up arrow on this item

If there is already a drawn arrow (say on column two) and then I want to draw another arrow (say on column one) well I want to remove the previous arrow (so the arrow on column one).

SetItemFlag let's me draw an arrow, but doesn't let me remove the arrow.

After a little more research I think you can do what you want with _GUICtrlHeader_SetItemFormat

No joke! How? I've been looking through the udf script and don't really understand how

GARY YOU ROCK!

Thanks !!! I'm just using a blank image list and that seems to do the trick.

Should be no reason to use a blank image list just use:

_GUICtrlHeader_SetItemFormat ($hHeader, 0, BitOR($HDF_LEFT, $HDF_STRING))

that should turn off the arrow

Works better than the blank image! Thanks

I didn't know that it could be done this way.
