Save and Load contents of a listview

Recommended Posts


I have a listview with 9 columns, is there a way to save that data to a text file and import the data back into the listview later?

I see that there is a function _GUICtrlListView_GetItemTextArray that will read all fields to an array, and _GUICtrlListView_AddArray that will read an array into a listview, but are the two formats the same? So far, all I have in the code is the code to create a file or open a file, but I have not written or read from the file.

func savequeue()
    $savelocation=FileSaveDialog ("Save Queue", @DesktopCommonDir&"\", "Text (*.txt)",16,"my queue.txt")
    FileOpen ($savelocation, 2);creates file

Func openqueue()
    $queuelocation=FileOpenDialog("Open Queue",@DesktopCommonDir&"\", "Text (*.txt)",16,"")
    FileOpen ($queuelocation, 0);opens the saved file

I hope it's not too late...

If you want to use the "_GUICtrlListView_AddArray" you may should use an ini file with sections instead of text file.

This would be much more easy as you can use "IniReadSections" function to get all items for a section, and the result is already stored in a 2 dimentional array.

Use "IniWriteSection" to update the ini file using Listview items values.

Hope this will help.

Here's something from a program I made a while ago that reads stuff from an ini file into a listview

$listview = _GUICtrlListView_Create($GuiHwnd, "", 60, 55, 330, 200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($listview, BitOR($LVS_EX_GRIDLINES, $LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT))
_GUICtrlListView_InsertColumn($listview, 0, "Name ", 110)
_GUICtrlListView_InsertColumn($listview, 1, "IP", 160)
$names = IniReadSectionNames("file.ini")
For $names1 = 1 To $names[0]
    $ip = IniRead("file.ini", $names[$names1], "ip", "No DNS")
    $number = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($listview)
    ;Make list items
    _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($listview, $names[$names1], 0)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($listview, $number, $ip, 1)
    ;End list items

Hope this helps. ;)
