Gui List control

8 posts in this topic

I am building a gui and have a couple of issues which I cannot figure out.

1. How do I get the colums to automatically resize to see all the row data

2. I have put a checkbox on each list item - how do I check the box from the script instead of the user checking the box

Here is a test script I am playing with

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#Include <GuiListView.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

GUICreate("listview items", 500,500)

GUISetBkColor (0x00E0FFFF) ; will change background color

Global $listview = GuiCtrlCreateListView ("Application Name | Progress ",-1,-1,200,300,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING, BitOr($LVS_LIST, $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES))

GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("1111111111111111111111111|3", $listview)

GuiSetState()

Sleep(5000)

Any help appreciated

bourny,

Answer to first question. Look at _GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth in the Help file. You need to use the $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE parameter AFTER you have entered the data so it knows how wide the column has to become.

Answer to second question (I think). Look at _GUICtrlListView_SetItemChecked.

P.S. You will need to widen your ListView if you want to see it all by the way! ;-)

Global $listview = GuiCtrlCreateListView ("Application Name | Progress ",-1,-1,300,300,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING, BitOr($LVS_LIST, $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES))

Thanks for that.

This now allows me to get the columns automatically rezized. I noticed one other thing...... The width of the GuiCtrlCreateListView

has to be set manually to see all the rows. Is there a way I can work out how bit the table needs to be depending on its rows and then center it in the middle of the GUI .

Thanks

I found the following but can only get the width changed automatically the height does not work

$iX = _GUICtrlListView_ApproximateViewWidth($listview)

_WinAPI_SetWindowPos(GUICtrlGetHandle($listview), 0, 2, 2, $iX, 268, $SWP_NOZORDER)

$iY = _GUICtrlListView_ApproximateViewHeight($listview)

_WinAPI_SetWindowPos(GUICtrlGetHandle($listview), 0, 2, 2, 394, $iY, $SWP_NOZORDER)

Sorry to bump this but I have found it is not the second column that is misbehaving it is the blank column at the end (3rd) that I cannot get rid of.

I have looked thru other posts and other posts also seem to have an extra blank column at the end of the table.

Does anyone know how to get rid of the last column - I only want to display the 2 I am using - this column makes the GUI look a mess and is unnecessary

Any help appreciated

Found it........ It appears I have the script already defined but it is too gigh up ... I have moved it to the bottom and it appears to strip down the extra unnecessary column

My script now after the change

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>

GUICreate("listview items", 500,500)
GUISetBkColor (0x00E0FFF) ; will change background color
;Global $listview = GuiCtrlCreateListView ("Application Name  | Progress ",-1,-1,300,400,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING, BitOr($LVS_LIST, $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES))
Global $listview = GuiCtrlCreateListView ("Application|Progress",-1,-1,0,0)

_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($ListView, 0,  $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($ListView, 1,  $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER)
_GUICtrlListView_SetColumnWidth($ListView, 2,  $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER)


GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("1111111111111111111111111|2222|", $listview)
GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("22222222222|222|", $listview)

GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("11111111111111111|444|", $listview)

$iY = _GUICtrlListView_ApproximateViewHeight($listview)
_WinAPI_SetWindowPos(GUICtrlGetHandle($listview), 0, 2, 2, 394, $iY, $SWP_NOZORDER)
$iX = _GUICtrlListView_ApproximateViewWidth($listview)
_WinAPI_SetWindowPos(GUICtrlGetHandle($listview), 0, 2, 2, $iX, 268, $SWP_NOZORDER)
