Send different data than whats is text field of tree item

9 posts in this topic

I would like a tree item to send different text than what is displayed in the tree item text field. I made this script below to try to figure it out, but I have not been able to after searching to forums. Can anyone give me a tip on how I could do this?

I would like the tree to show "item 1", but the data actually displayed in the MsgBox will be "new 1".

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>
#include <TreeViewConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$_1 = GUICreate("My GUI with treeview", 267, 257, 1081, 392)
$Tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(68, 0, 198, 256)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$TabSheet1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet1")
$TreeView1 = GUICtrlCreateTreeView(72, 49, 189, 202, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$TreeView1_0 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("menu 1", $TreeView1)
$TreeView1_1 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("item 1", $TreeView1_0)
$TreeView1_2 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("item 2", $TreeView1_0)
$TreeView1_3 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("menu 2", $TreeView1)
$TreeView1_4 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("item 3", $TreeView1_3)
$TreeView1_5 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem("item 4", $TreeView1_3)
$Button9a = GUICtrlCreateButton("Send", 180, 25, 70, 20, 0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

$item1 = "new 1"
$item2 = "new 2"
$item3 = "new 3"
$item4 = "new 4"

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $Msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
    If $Msg = $Button9a Then Send_Tree()
    WEnd
    
Func Send_Tree()
    $item = GUICtrlRead($treeview1)
        If $item = 0 Then
            MsgBox(64, "Error", "No item currently selected")
            Else
    $text = GUICtrlRead($item, 1)
        If $text == "" Then
            MsgBox(16, "Error", "Error while retrieving infos about item")
        Else
            MsgBox(64, "TreeView Demo", "Current item selected is: " & $text)
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc

After sleeping I was able to make some progress, but the code displays all the $new variables one after another rather then just displaying one at a time. I would like it to only display one rather then go through all the new variables.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

Global $C[6], $new[6]

$C[0] = "menu 1"
$C[1] = "item 1"
$C[2] = "item 2"
$C[3] = "menu 2"
$C[4] = "item 3"
$C[5] = "item 4"

$new[0] = "new 1"
$new[1] = "new 2"
$new[2] = "new 3"
$new[3] = "new 4"
$new[4] = "new 5"
$new[5] = "new 6"

$_1 = GUICreate("My GUI with treeview", 267, 257, 1081, 392)
$Tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(68, 0, 198, 256)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$TabSheet1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet1")
$TreeView1 = GUICtrlCreateTreeView(72, 49, 189, 202, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$TreeView1_0 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($C[0], $TreeView1)
$TreeView1_1 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($C[1], $TreeView1_0)
$TreeView1_2 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($C[2], $TreeView1_0)

$TreeView1_4 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($C[4], $TreeView1_3)

Works great thanks! I don't think I would have been able to figure that out. I need to read up more on arrays and _ArraySearch.

Ok, so I ran into a problem with the way the code works that Melba23 provided. I made a rather large tree and some of the names from $aList[x][0] are the same further down the list, which causes it to display only the first item = "" rather then what is in the second list. I made an example of what I mean below. If you click on the last item $aList[5][0] = (BLDG 31) and hit send it does not display not31, it displays what $aList[1][0] had set.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

$aList[1][0] = "BLDG 31"

$aList[3][0] = "item 4"
$aList[4][0] = "item 5"
$aList[5][0] = "BLDG 31"

$aList[0][1] = "new 1"
$aList[1][1] = "new 2"
$aList[2][1] = "BLDG 31"
$aList[3][1] = "new 4"
$aList[4][1] = "new 5"
$aList[5][1] = "not31"

$_1 = GUICreate("My GUI with treeview", 267, 257)
$Tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(68, 0, 198, 256)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
$TabSheet1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet1")
$TreeView1 = GUICtrlCreateTreeView(72, 49, 189, 202, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$TreeView1_0 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($aList[0][0], $TreeView1)
$TreeView1_1 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($aList[1][0], $TreeView1_0)
$TreeView1_2 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($aList[2][0], $TreeView1_0)
$TreeView1_3 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($aList[3][0], $TreeView1)
$TreeView1_4 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($aList[4][0], $TreeView1_3)
$TreeView1_5 = GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem($aList[5][0], $TreeView1_3)
$Button9a = GUICtrlCreateButton("Send", 180, 25, 70, 20, 0)

kistoff,

It is not surprising that you get the wrong answer - _ArraySearch will only return the FIRST element that matches the search value. You have 2 elements of the array that match:

$aList[0][0] = "Item 1"

$aList[1][0] = "BLDG 31" <<<<<<<<<<<<<

$aList[2][0] = "item 3"

$aList[3][0] = "item 4"

$aList[4][0] = "item 5"

$aList[5][0] = "BLDG 31" <<<<<<<<<<<<<

So it is quite normal that the function returns the first.

If you want repeated elements, the whole concept of the script needs to be rethought!

Thanks for the help Melba23, I didn't think having the tree send/display something other then what is in the viewable text field would be such a challenge. A tree would be ideal for what I need, but I could probably chop my tree or try something else all together.

I found a rather simple solution that doesn't really effect my tree that much. I just put an extra number at the end of each duplicate name in my tree to avoid it finding and returning the first element in the array. Not really sure why I didn't think of this sooner, but thanks for the help Melba23!
