Lots of Q on ListBoxes

5 posts in this topic

I have 3 questions (at least for the moment, I think I'll add more soon) about listboxes:

1. How can I make a tab's width smaller than the text it contains?

2. How can I use GUICtrlRead for a specific line in the listbox?

3. How can I get the number of lines in the listbox?

Thank you for your help! muttley

Q3.
#Include <GuiListBox.au3>
_GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($hWnd)

Thank you both!

1. Maybe _GUICtrlListBox_SetColumnWidth() ??

2. _GUICtrlListBox_GetText()

3. _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount()

And you know what? All this is in the help-file!

I've searched in the help-file after "GUICtrlCreateListView". There is nothing about the three functions there. How would I know they are called this way ? How would I find them if I don't know their names?

Edit: Of course everything is in the helpfile! But there are so many things in the helpfile so you'll never find what you're looking for by guess, if you don't know the name of the function.

Edit2: I was refering at listview soory :( They have such almost identical names :) . Anyway, now that I know about _GUICtrl[nameOfControl] _ [whatYourelookingFor] is much more easier for me to find what I'm intrested in.

Thank you guys! muttley
