Rename Desktop items / _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm trying to rename a shortcut on the desktop called "ASTr" to "ASTr-v3.1.3" with _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText:

#Include <GuiListView.au3>

$hWnd_LV = ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:Progman]", "", "SysListView321")

For $nIdx = 0 To _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount ($hWnd_LV) - 1
    $sIconText = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText ($hWnd_LV, $nIdx)
    $aPos = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemPosition ($hWnd_LV, $nIdx)
    ;MsgBox( 0, "Desktop item " & $nIdx, $sIconText & " at X=" & $aPos[0] & ", Y=" & $aPos[1] )
    If StringRegExp ( $sIconText, '^ASTr', 0 ) Then
        ;MsgBox( 0, "Desktop item " & $nIdx, $sIconText & " at X=" & $aPos[0] & ", Y=" & $aPos[1] )
        _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText($hWnd_LV, $nIdx, "ASTr-v3.1.3")
    EndIf

Next

MsgBox( 0, "", "Done" )

This kinda works: I can see the text changed on the desktop, until I refresh the desktop that is!

_GUICtrlListView_SetItemText effect seems non-persistent!

I see in include/GuiListView.au3 it's sending an LVM_SETITEM message. Should it be sending another message?

Something wrong with FileMove()? And IIRC, a hyphen is an invalid character in a file name.

;
If FileExists(@DesktopDir & "\ASTr.lnk") Then FileMove ( @DesktopDir & "\ASTr.lnk", @DesktopDir & "\ASTr_v3.1.3.lnk")
;

That only proves I'm too expert, playing with complicated 32-character-long function names..

Still, I'm a noob, not thinking of the obvious FileMove approach!

Hence the ExpertNoob :)

Thank you GEOSoft for offering me an option!

Still, I'm curious why _GUICtrlListView_SetItemText's action does not persist !

FYI, a hyphen (-) is not an illegal character. What would the world of MP3s do if it was?
