ListView View filename without scroll

6 posts in this topic

I have a list view that is a list of file names however the issue I'm having is the file names can be too long to view without scrolling which means creating (in some cases) an extremely long scroll bar so I was wondering if anybody knew how to show it like other programs such as:

C:\....\my file.ext

instead of C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\Folder\Sub Folder\my file.ext

I looked through the help file and didn't see a function for this

$sMidlePath = _GetMidlePath("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\Folder\Sub Folder\my file.ext", 2, 1)

MsgBox(64, "", $sMidlePath)

Func _GetMidlePath($sPath, $iMinSlashes=4, $iMode=0)
    StringReplace($sPath, "\", "")
    If @extended < $iMinSlashes Then Return $sPath
    
    Local $sStartPath, $sEndPath
    
    Switch $iMode
        Case 1
            $sStartPath = StringLeft($sPath, StringInStr($sPath, "\", 0, 1))
            $sEndPath = StringRegExpReplace($sPath, "^.*(\\)", "\1")
        Case Else
            $sStartPath = StringLeft($sPath, StringInStr($sPath, "\", 0, 2))
            $sEndPath = StringTrimLeft($sPath, StringInStr($sPath, "\", 0, -2)-1)
    EndSwitch
    
    Return $sStartPath & "...." & $sEndPath
EndFunc

I was thinking of doing it like that but then how do I get the full path when I need to from the list view since files are going to be from separate paths

Build a dynamic array, it's the best solution for such task. Or you could store the full paths in some hidden ListView (or in a column of LV, but the column can not be hidden actualy afaik, only set the width to 0).
