Func ViewInventory()
$ViewInventory = GUICreate("Inventory View", 600, 440, 193, 125, -1, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)
$listview = GUICtrlCreateListView("Item#    | Product                                          |Usable|Total Unusable", 0, 0, 600, 440,$LVS_NOLABELWRAP,$LVS_EX_GRIDLINES)
$ProductInfo = IniReadSection(@ScriptDir & "\Inventory\Inventory.ini", "Inventory")
For $N = 1 To $ProductInfo[0][0]

I would post the entire thing, but it's 3000+ lines, and those are the relevant lines... lol.

I'm having a terrible time getting the Product Tab over, as you can see by the mass spaces after | Product, which was a failed attempt, but close.. :unsure:

I don't want to expand it every time I was to see the full product name... I've searched and modified all relevant styles, and can't seem to figure it out... Any help is highly appreciated, screen-shot is attached as well... :P

Try creating your ListView with simple headers ("Item#|Product|Usable|Total Unusable") and then use _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth with the $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE style. It has worked for me in the past. But be careful or you may end up running out of space in the GUI to show the right hand columns. :-)

If you can accepts a variable sized GUI, there is a way to see how big it would have to be for all columns to fit. You would have to play with this a bit, but the principle is pretty clear:

$iWidth = 0
For $i = 0 To $Last_Col
    $iWidth += GUICtrlSendMsg($hListView, $_ARRAYCONSTANT_LVM_GETCOLUMNWIDTH, $i, 0)
WinMove($hGUI, "", Default, Default, $iWidth + 20)

I hope this helps.

For some reason I couldn't get the $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE to work... Not syntax error, it just cramped all my columns to like 10px width...

Anyway, I DID however get your CtrlSend to work for a manual resize.

You are truly appreciated!

GUICtrlSendMsg($ListView, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 1, 210)
