According to documentation (see _GUICtrlListView_Create help page), when pressing Enter key, ListView control should send a WM_NOTIFY message with code $NM_RETURN.

A few workarounds have been proposed over the years (see, but maybe it is possible to solve the issue at the source.

I believe this is a Windows API problem and not related to AutoIt. Search for NM_Return and Listview and you'll find a lot of people running into this problem.

long wait
but the short answer is the doc does say the $NM_RETURN. must be return but just the example will display it if WM_NOTIFY is triggered
