#235 closed Bug (No Bug)

_GUICtrlListView_AddItem() VS GUICtrlCreateListViewItem() + Fix.

Reported by: Shlomikalfa@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: ListView Unicode Cc:


-> UDF - doesn't support Unicode. [But works smooth with no flicker.]
-> Built-in - Flickers like a disco light , Re'draws the listview i think. [But support Unicode just fine!]

Please review the following topic as there is a UDF replied by one of the forum members which Combines both the benefits of the above, it doesn't flicker and it does support Unicode.

This is my first bug-report, hope i've done it right.

Automatic ticket cleanup.

the difference with the builtin comes from the fact that an autoajustment of the columns size is done. That's producing the flickering try a GUISetState(@SW_LOCK/UNLOCK)
I test a little bit with the GUICtrlCreateListviewItem example without really seing the flickering.
Can you post a repro script? That's the best way to document a bug. I have no cristal ball ...

If anything this should of been two tickets.

A feature request for the UDFs to be converted to Unicode.
No need for the feature request now. I've converted the GuiListView.au3 to Unicode and will be submitting it.

As to the other I'll leave it up to jpm.

Sorry guys i didn't really thought you'll be responding so fast... god i love you !!!
anyhow, here is a reproduction.

Just start the reproduction using latest beta. [.10.]
click on DanceClub Refresh and start dancing :)
use the other refresh button to see it may also work smooth...
Weird thing is [only on this reproduction it happends] if you click twice on the

normal refreshing button, a TAB-Item disappears... nothing in the function >> called has anything to do with the TAB.

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

as I say the builtin is trying to adjust the column size each time you introduce a new item so the flickering occur. just at a GUISetState(@SW_LOCK) before creating the 100 entries and GUISetState(@SW_UNLOCK) afterThat's the difference between the builtin and the UDF
