ListView Problems

Recommended Posts



I have two listviews ($Listau3 and $Listexe) and an inputbox ($SelectedScript). My script lets the user select a folder and the au3 files are loaded in the first listview and the exes are loaded in the other listview. If a user selects a script in one of the listviews the name must be in the inputbox ($SelectedScrupt).

The problem is when I click an au3 file and after that I select an executable and then an au3 again it still displays the executable I selected earlier... Is there any way how I can fix this?

If GUICtrlRead ( $Listau3 ) > 0 Then
    $Readau3 = GUICtrlRead ( GUICtrlRead ( $Listau3 ) )
    $Readau3r = StringSplit ( $Readau3, "|" )
    GUICtrlSetData ( $SelectedScript, $Readau3r[1] )
If GUICtrlRead ( $Listexe ) > 0 Then
    $Readexe = GUICtrlRead ( GUICtrlRead ( $Listexe ) )
    $Readexer = StringSplit ( $Readexe, "|" )
    GUICtrlSetData ( $SelectedScript, $Readexer[1] )

Your problem is that the 2 If sections are both run each time - so once you have selected something in the .exe list, GUICtrlRead ( $Listexe ) > 0 is always true and your script will always set the value of the Input to the value of the .exe list, even if it had just been set to the value of the .au3 list.

You need to find out which list was last actioned - ControlGetFocus is one way of doing that. Here is some code to play with - it works perfectly for me:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <File.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hLB1 = GUICtrlCreateList("",  10, 10, 200, 200)
$hLB2 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 250, 10, 200, 200)

$hIB = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 300, 200, 20)


$aList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir, "*.au3", 1)
For $i = 1 To $aList[0]
    GUICtrlSetData($hLB1, $aList[$i])
$aList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir, "*.exe", 1)
For $i = 1 To $aList[0]
    GUICtrlSetData($hLB2, $aList[$i])

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

    If ControlGetFocus($hGUI) = "ListBox1" Then
        $sRead_LB = GUICtrlRead($hLB1)
        GUICtrlSetData($hIB, $sRead_LB)
    ElseIf ControlGetFocus($hGUI) = "ListBox2" Then
        $sRead_LB = GUICtrlRead($hLB2)
        GUICtrlSetData($hIB, $sRead_LB)
