List of checkboxes?

34 posts in this topic

I'm writing a script that will allow a user to select which file(s) of several hundred that they want to use. Is there any way to create a list of checkboxes so that I have plenty of room left in my GUI for other things?

Sorry if I'm not making sense, I'll try and elaborate further at a later time....need sleep...

Overkill,

Use a ListBox to list the files. Multiple selections are allowed if required.

I can't select multiple files using GUICtrlCreateList, and I don't see anything in the sytles/extended styles on how to do it.

Now that I've had plenty of sleep, I'll tell you what I have so far:

FileList("directory" [,include subdirectories[,"file type"]]) - a UDF I wrote for this app, returns an array.

$array[0] is the number of files found, $array[1] to $array[$array[0]] are strings that give the full path of files that match the query.

$dir = "C:\Music\Skindred"
$FileList = Filelist($dir,1,"mp3")

GUICreate("GUI",482,302)
GUISetState()
$list=GUICtrlCreateList("",1,1,480,300)

For $i=1 to $test[0]
     If $FileList[$i]<>"" Then GUICtrlSetData($list,FileList[$i])
Next

While 1
    $m = GUIGetMsg()
    If $m = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
WEnd

Overkill,

I said ListBox, not List.

An example:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIListBox.au3>
#include <ListBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $aSelected[1]

Global $hGUI = GUICreate("FLV Processing", 200, 180)
GUISetIcon(@SystemDir & "\mspaint.exe", 0)

Global $hListBox = _GUICtrlListBox_Create($hGUI, "String upon creation", 10, 30, 180, 90, BitOR($WS_BORDER, $LBS_HASSTRINGS, $LBS_MULTIPLESEL))

_GUICtrlListBox_BeginUpdate($hListBox)
_GUICtrlListBox_ResetContent($hListBox)
_GUICtrlListBox_InitStorage($hListBox, 100, 4096)
_GUICtrlListBox_EndUpdate($hListBox)

_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($hListBox,"Tom")
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($hListBox,"Dick")
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($hListBox,"Harry")

Global $hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select", 60, 130, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $hButton;$guimsg; = 
            $aSelected = _GUICtrlListBox_GetSelItems($hListBox)
            If $aSelected[0] = 1 Then
                $sItem = " item"
            Else
                $sItem = " items"
            EndIf
            MsgBox(0, "", "You Chose " & $aSelected[0] & $sItem)
            $sItems = ''
            For $i = 1 To $aSelected[0]
                $sItems &= "Item Index: " & $aSelected[$i] & " - Item Text: " & _GUICtrlListBox_GetText($hListBox,$aSelected[$i]) & @CRLF
            Next
            MsgBox(4160, "Information", $sItems)
        
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Thanks wolf =)

This works, minus a couple of details (which I worked around in my UDF before posting):

1) I often need to list all contents of a subdirectory with the same function. I already wrote the UDF, but I learned a better method of defining the array by seeing your example so thanks =)

2) I need the full path, not just the file name (though one of my goals is to display only the file names, w/o extensions or paths...probably using StringInStr + StringMid).

I also need a way to figure out how to determine which boxes are checked; having a difficult time with that. GUICtrlRead($list) is giving me a 0.

Goal of app:

I format my HDD's music differently than I do on my MP3 player, MP3 DVDs, etc.

On my HDD: \Music\Artist\Album\Track - Title (Album - Artist).mp3

Elsewhere: \Artist\Title (Album - Artist).mp3

App will control which files to copy (the reason for the checkboxes), the renaming process, etc.

Also, to everybody, thanks for being an awesome community =) It's good to know I can come here when I'm stuck and somebody can throw an idea at me to get things rolling again :)

------

EDIT:

You posted while I was typing, M...grr!

Let me digest your post and I'll edit again.

Also, I couldn't find ListBox in the help file so I started with list =)

------

EDIT:

M - Your idea was right on the money...not the 'ideal' GUI that I wanted but it will certainly accomplish what I need it to.

TO DO: (I'll work on these on my own and if I need help I'll reply here)

Format list to show partial path or only file name

Multiple tabs (one per artist)

Options menu

Save selections to INI file

Other features I haven't thought of yet

Overkill,

I hope you do not have any more problems, but if you do I would suggest opening a new thread unless it is very closely associated with the ListBox problems we have been discussing here. It helps others when they search (should any of them ever do such a weird thing!) if separate problems are dealt with in different threads.

Well, here's a listbox problem:

The listbox is not behaving well when I try to use it in a tab:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIListBox.au3>
#include <ListBoxConstants.au3>
#include <OvKFileList.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>

Opt("TrayIconDebug",1)

$FileList = FileList("C:\Music\Skindred",1,"mp3")
$mbtext=""
For $i=1 to $FileList[0]
    $mbtext&=$FileList[$i] & @CRLF
Next
MsgBox(0,"",$mbtext)
$MAINGUI = GUICreate("FileList GUI",482,302)
GUISetState()
GUICtrlCreateTab(1,1,480,300,BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_TAB,$TCS_BUTTONS,$TCS_MULTILINE,$TCS_RIGHTJUSTIFY))
$MAINTAB = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Main Tab")
GUICtrlCreateButton("Test",1,22)

GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Second Tab")

$hListBox = _GUICtrlListBox_Create($MAINGUI, "42", 90, 25, 300, 200, BitOR($LBS_HASSTRINGS, $LBS_MULTIPLESEL))

_GUICtrlListBox_BeginUpdate($hListBox)
_GUICtrlListBox_ResetContent($hListBox)
_GUICtrlListBox_InitStorage($hListBox, $FileList[0], 102400)
_GUICtrlListBox_EndUpdate($hListBox)

For $i=1 to $FileList[0]
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($hListBox,$FileList[$i])
Next

$b1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("List",6,212,45,25)

While 1
    $m = GUIGetMsg()
    If $m = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
    If $m = $b1 Then
        $sItems = ''
        $items = _GUICtrlListBox_GetSelItems($hListBox)
        For $i = 1 To $items[0]
                $sItems &= "Item Index: " & $items[$i] & " - Item Text: " & _GUICtrlListBox_GetText($hListBox,$items[$i]) & @CRLF
        Next
        MsgBox(4160, "Information", $sItems)
    EndIf
WEnd

Overkill,

It does not look as if you can create ListBoxes in tabs. Every time I tried to use the ControlID of a tab I got an error. It seems it will only work with a "proper" GUI ID, which makes it part of the window and not the tab. That is what you get (sometimes) when you use UDFs and not the builtin commands.

So 2 choices: Change your GUI, or wait until (or if!) one of the gurus comes up with a solution. I know which I would do!

By the way, you had not closed your tabs properly - you need to add the line GUICtrlCreateTabItem("") when you have finished defining the tabs and items. In this case it did not matter because you did not create any more controls, but in a longer script you could find strange errors occuring and you wondering what is going on!

Well, if I could use the ListView approach wolf posted to select songs and somehow differentiate between checked/unchecked items, I'd be set :)

Thanks for pointing out the tab closing...I knew that just totally skipped my mind.

Overkill,

The only way i have found to get multiple selected items in a ListView is to do this:

Set up the ListView and then GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "MY_WM_NOTIFY"):

Func MY_WM_NOTIFY($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    
    Local $tNMHDR
    
    If $wParam = $hList Then 
        $tNMHDR = DllStructCreate("int;int;int", $lParam)
        If @error Then Return
        If DllStructGetData($tNMHDR, 3) = $NM_CLICK Then $fClick = True
        $tNMHDR = 0
    EndIf
    
EndFunc

Then when you click on an item in the ListBox, the NOTIFY function sets $fClick to True and in your main loop you do something like this:

If $fClick Then
; Get index number of clicked item
    Global $iIndex =  _GUICtrlListView_GetHotItem($hList)
; Highlight item
    _GUICtrlListView_SetItemDropHilited($hList, $iIndex)

; Here you need to store the index - up to you how you do this!

; Reset flag
    $fClick = False
EndIf

Once you are ready to go, loop through the stored indices and use _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($hList, $iIndex) to get the values (or do it directly in the loop above)

When all is done, you need to clear the highlighting - I have found the best way is to empty the ListBox with _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems(GUICtrlGetHandle($hIncudeList)) - note you do need the double function - and then refill it.

Rather a roundabout way, but it is the only one I have ever found. There is a _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices function, but I have never got it to work - it only returns the last selected item even if I use _GUICtrlListView_SetItemSelected each time in the loop above. Beats me - but then so do a lot of things!

Thanks a ton!

Without getting philosophical, all I can say is that fewer things beat you than beat me =) At least when it comes to AutoIt :)

I'm not sure if this will be able to accomplish my goal entirely, but we'll see...we'll see. I'll play around with it for a bit and see what I come up with.

I was looking at GUICtrlRead() and saw something interesting, so I decided to revisit it and put together some sample code...still trying to make it work. Thoughts, comments, criticism?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <ListviewConstants.au3>

$MAINGUI = GUICreate("FileList GUI",482,302)
GUISetState()

$listview = GUICtrlCreateListView("test",5,40,470,200)
_GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle(-1, BitOR($LVS_EX_BORDERSELECT , $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES ))
_GUICtrlListView_InsertColumn(-1, 0, "Filelist", 465)
_GUICtrlListView_DeleteColumn("", 1)

$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button",5,260,100,25)

Dim $item[6]
$item[0] = 5
$item[1] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("1 of 5",$listview)
$item[2] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("2 of 5",$listview)
$item[3] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("3 of 5",$listview)
$item[4] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("4 of 5",$listview)
$item[5] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("5 of 5",$listview)

While 1
    $m = GUIGetMsg()
    If $m = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
    If $m = $button Then
        For $i=1 to $item[0]
            ConsoleWrite("Item " & $i & " of " & $item[0] & ": ")
            ConsoleWrite(BitAND($GUI_UNCHECKED,GUICtrlRead($item[$i])) & @CRLF)
            Next
    EndIf
WEnd

Overkill,

Cannot help with the "checkbox" problem for the moment - I agree it is a very strange response. I will let you know how I get on.

However, I have at last worked out how to make multiple selections in a ListView. You need to keep the Ctrl key pressed while making the selections - then AutoIt keeps the selected items highlighted automatically and _GUICtrlListView_GetSelectedIndices works as advertised. The way I described above is more complicated, but does not require the Ctrl key to be pressed at all.

So, one down and another to go - no rest for the wicked!

Why don't you try GUICtrlCreateTreeView with TreeViewItems with checkbox-style?

A feasible option, but definitely not how I'd like to do things. I ... strongly dislike ... tree views.

Also, I expect it to work out like ListView + Checkboxes

Overkill,

Solved the ListView and $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES problem. You have to use the "advanced" parameter for GUICtrlRead - look in Help file for more explanation. I also had to change your ListBox creation code to get it to work properly:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <ListviewConstants.au3>

$MAINGUI = GUICreate("FileList GUI",482,302)
GUISetState()

$listview = GUICtrlCreateListView("Filelist",5,40,470,200, -1, $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES )
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($listview, 0, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER)

$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button",5,260,100,25)

Dim $item[6]
$item[0] = 5
$item[1] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("1 of 5",$listview)
$item[2] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("2 of 5",$listview)
$item[3] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("3 of 5",$listview)
$item[4] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("4 of 5",$listview)
$item[5] = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("5 of 5",$listview)

While 1
    $m = GUIGetMsg()
    If $m = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
    If $m = $button Then
        For $i=1 to $item[0]
            If BitOR(GUICtrlRead($item[$i], 1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                ConsoleWrite("Item " & $i & " - Checked" & @CRLF)
            Else
                ConsoleWrite("Item " & $i & " - Unchecked" & @CRLF)
            EndIf
        Next
    EndIf
WEnd

That now works perfectly for me.

             If BitOR(GUICtrlRead($item[$i], 1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                 ConsoleWrite("Item " & $i & " - Checked" & @CRLF)
             Else
                 ConsoleWrite("Item " & $i & " - Unchecked" & @CRLF)
             EndIf
         Next
     EndIf
 WEnd
