Multi-line column headings in GUICtrlCreateListView?

5 posts in this topic

In order to conserve column width, is it possible to have ListView column headings split over two or more lines?

I have tried embedding @CRLF macros (e.g. GUICtrlCreateListView("Column 1 " & @CRLF & "heading | Column 2 " & @CRLF & "heading" ...) but this displays the headings on one line interspersed with small rectangular characters.

Any suggestions?

conserve column width

Example:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ListViewConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global Const $HDN_FIRST = -300
Global Const $HDN_ITEMCHANGINGA = $HDN_FIRST - 0
Global Const $HDN_ITEMCHANGINGW = $HDN_FIRST - 20
Global Const $HDN_BEGINTRACKA = $HDN_FIRST - 6
Global Const $HDN_BEGINTRACKW = $HDN_FIRST - 26

$GUI = GUICreate("Static Columns Demo!", 420, 240)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Quit")

$ListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("Column1|Column2", 20, 20, 380, 200, $LVS_NOSORTHEADER)
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "WM_NOTIFY_EVENTS")

GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item 1|SubItem 1", $ListView)
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item 2|SubItem 2", $ListView)

GUICtrlSendMsg($ListView, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 0, 80)
GUICtrlSendMsg($ListView, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 1, 80)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func WM_NOTIFY_EVENTS($hWndGUI, $MsgID, $wParam, $lParam)
    Local $TagNMHDR = DllStructCreate("int;int;int", $lParam)
    If @error Then Return
    
    Local $iEvent = DllStructGetData($TagNMHDR, 3)
    If $iEvent = $HDN_BEGINTRACKA Or $iEvent = $HDN_BEGINTRACKW Or _
        $iEvent = $HDN_ITEMCHANGINGA Or $iEvent = $HDN_ITEMCHANGINGW Then Return 1
    
    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc

Thanks for the reply rasim.

I probably did not explain my question very well, but as a picture is probably worth a thousand words, here is an example (created with my graphics editor) of what I am trying to achieve:

i.e. I would like the words in each column heading to appear on two or more lines withing the grey column heading.

kjuenke,

Did you notice that the first post in this thread dates from over 7 years ago and that the OP has not been online since then?

Please do not necro-post like this again - just open a new thread and link to the old one if it is absolutely necessary for understanding the problem. We ask you to do this for two main reasons:

  • The language advances and the functionality might well be included in core or UDF code by now
  • The changes in language syntax mean that it is likely that code from more than a couple of years ago may well not run under the current release interpreter without significant modification.
