Listbox selections

Listbox selections

Postby Ross_ValuSoft » Wed May 02, 2012 8:33 am

Hi everyone.

I have an application that stores the results of electrical safety tests on items in a hotel room, eg lamp, TV, hair dryer etc.

Sometimes the user puts the wrong tags on two items and wants to swap the results for the tag numbers. I show him all the results in the rows of a listbox. How can I highlight 2 rows in a listbox? If I can highlight 2 rows I can then simply use a button action to swap the tag numbers.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,

Ross

Do you mean Windows standard listboxes or FWH browses?

Thanks for your reply Enrico .... and happy birthday!

I display the candidates like this in my FWPPC application under Windows Mobile 6.5 ...
Code: Select all  Expand view

        @ 20, 8 ListBox oLst ;
       Fields IIF( (ITEM_IN->RESULT == "5"), hFailed, ;
                 IIF( (ITEM_IN->RESULT == "6"), hvisual , ;
                 IIF( ( (ITEM_IN->RESULT == "2") .OR. ;
                        (ITEM_IN->RESULT == "3") .OR. ;
                          (ITEM_IN->RESULT == "4") ), hMoney, "" ) ) ) ,;
       ITEM_IN->SITE, ITEM_IN->LOCATION, ITEM_IN->Number, ITEM_IN->TAG_NUMB, ;
        IIF( empty( ITEM_IN->ITEM ), ITEM_IN->OTHER, ITEM_IN->ITEM ), ;
        IIF( ( val( ITEM_IN->Category ) < 8 ), aClasses[ val( ITEM_IN->Classes ) ], " " ), ;
        IIF( ( val( ITEM_IN->Category ) < 8 ), aFrequency[ val( ITEM_IN->Frequency ) ] , "Yearly" ) ;
       Alias "ITEM_IN" ;
       FieldSizes 18, 30, 40, 30, 50, 100, 100, 100 ;
       Headers '', 'Site','Where', '#', 'Tag', 'What', 'Class', 'Frequency' ;
       Size 240-20, 200-10 ;
       Pixel
 

Hmmm, that didn't paste very neatly, but hopefully it makes sense.

Should I just use an "ON DBLCLICK" clause to do it perhaps?

Cheers,

Ross (heading to bed now at 1 am)

It's a TWBrowse. Sorry, I think it's not possible to select more than one row.

Many thanks Enrico.

I read your answer and did not understand it. But I knew that you must be saying something very important ... so I then went and examined the source code for listbox and then the contents of fwce.ch and yes there it was in front of my nose ... a listbox using a dbf gets translated into a twbrowse and cannot use multiple selections. If it is a listbox of array elements then multiple selections can be made.

So now I must load my dbf file into an array, or ... is there some other way using FWPPC 10.2 of February 2010?

If I am correct this was the last release of FWPPC ... and probably will not be updated.

Best wishes,

Ross
