showing a ToolTip when Mouse cursor over on items of ListView

07 Apr 2019, 03:51

Hello,

i have a script with:
1. Buttons (3)
2. ListView (1)

the script using a function that gives you a ToolTip (msg) when your Mouse cursor over only on the Buttons (each button returns its name).

However my question is if i can get the SAME for the items of the ListView ?
so i'll get for each item (LV_Add) a ToolTip with its name.

Thanks in advance!

Code: Select all

Gui, Add, Button,, Over your mouse here 1 - works! :)
Gui, Add, Button,, Over your mouse here 2 - [email protected] :)
Gui, Add, Button,, Over your mouse here 3 - works# :)
Gui Add, ListView,, test
LV_Add("" 1, "Over your mouse here 1 - doesnt works! :(")
LV_Add("" 2, "Over your mouse here [email protected] - doesnt works! :(")
LV_Add("" 3, "Over your mouse here 3# - doesnt works! :(")
Gui, Show,,




hCurs:=DllCall("LoadCursor","UInt",NULL,"Int",32649,"UInt") ;IDC_HAND
OnMessage(0x200,"WM_MOUSEMOVE")
Return


WM_MOUSEMOVE(wParam, lParam, Msg)

   {
       ControlGetText, TXT_1, Button1
       ControlGetText, TXT_2, Button2
       ControlGetText, TXT_3, Button3
	

MouseGetPos,,,,ctrl
If ctrl in Button1
{
    ToolTip, %TXT_1%
}
else
If ctrl in Button2
{
    ToolTip, %TXT_2%
}
else
If ctrl in Button3
{
    ToolTip, %TXT_3%
}
else
{
	ToolTip
}
   }

I think you must select an Item to get the text:

Code: Select all

WM_MOUSEMOVE(wParam, lParam, Msg) {
    ControlGetText, TXT_1, Button1
    ControlGetText, TXT_2, Button2
    ControlGetText, TXT_3, Button3
    ControlGet, OutputVar, List, Focused, SysListView321
    MouseGetPos,,,,ctrl
    If SubStr(ctrl,1,6) = "Button" {
        b := SubStr(ctrl, 7,1)
        ToolTip, % TXT_%b%
    } else If (ctrl = "SysListView321") {
        ToolTip, % OutputVar
    } else {
        ToolTip
    }
}

if "select" is a must so i add a "checked" to the listview,
but tooltip won't disappear when you unslect the item:

Code: Select all

Gui, Add, Button,, Over your mouse here 1 - works! :)
Gui, Add, Button,, Over your mouse here 2 - [email protected] :)
Gui, Add, Button,, Over your mouse here 3 - works# :)
Gui Add, ListView, Checked, test
LV_Add("" 1, "Over your mouse here 1 - doesnt works! :(")
LV_Add("" 2, "Over your mouse here [email protected] - doesnt works! :(")
LV_Add("" 3, "Over your mouse here 3# - doesnt works! :(")
Gui, Show,,




hCurs:=DllCall("LoadCursor","UInt",NULL,"Int",32649,"UInt") ;IDC_HAND
OnMessage(0x200,"WM_MOUSEMOVE")
Return


WM_MOUSEMOVE(wParam, lParam, Msg) {
    ControlGetText, TXT_1, Button1
    ControlGetText, TXT_2, Button2
    ControlGetText, TXT_3, Button3
    ControlGet, OutputVar, List, Focused, SysListView321
    MouseGetPos,,,,ctrl
    If SubStr(ctrl,1,6) = "Button" {
        b := SubStr(ctrl, 7,1)
        ToolTip, % TXT_%b%
    } else If (ctrl = "SysListView321") {
        ToolTip, % OutputVar
    } else {
        ToolTip
    }
}

I'd changed your Tooltip to the "ctrl" variable. And as you can see, on the list elements it doesn't change. Unfortunately WindowsSpy.ahk doesn't register any change, too.
I'd tried a few things with ControlGet (https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/ControlGet.htm#Hwnd) but nothing worked.

The video is to big for the board. See it on Imgur https://imgur.com/a/zxDvo9A

@Tomer: A simple approach

Code: Select all

#NoEnv
SetBatchLines,  -1

; GUI: added control variables
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn1, Over your mouse here 1 - works! :)
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn2, Over your mouse here 2 - [email protected] :)
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn3, Over your mouse here 3 - works# :)
Gui, Add, ListView, vLV1, Test
LV_Add("", "Over your mouse here 1 - doesnt works! :(")
LV_Add("", "Over your mouse here [email protected] - doesnt works! :(")
LV_Add("", "Over your mouse here 3# - doesnt works! :(")
Gui, Show, , Test

OnMessage(0x0200, "WM_MOUSEMOVE")
Return

GuiClose:
ExitApp

WM_MOUSEMOVE(wParam, lParam, Msg, Hwnd) {
   ; LVM_HITTEST   -> docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/Controls/lvm-hittest
   ; LVHITTESTINFO -> docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/Commctrl/ns-commctrl-taglvhittestinfo
   TT := ""
   If A_GuiControl In Btn1,Btn2,Btn3
      GuiControlGet, TT, , %A_GuiControl%
   Else If (A_GuiControl = "LV1") {
      VarSetCapacity(LVHTI, 24, 0) ; LVHITTESTINFO
      , NumPut(lParam & 0xFFFF, LVHTI, 0, "Int")
      , NumPut((lParam >> 16) & 0xFFFF, LVHTI, 4, "Int")
      , Item := DllCall("SendMessage", "Ptr", Hwnd, "UInt", 0x1012, "Ptr", 0, "Ptr", &LVHTI, "Int") ; LVM_HITTEST
      If (Item >= 0) && (NumGet(LVHTI, 8, "UInt") & 0x0E) { ; LVHT_ONITEM
         Gui, ListView, %A_GuiControl%
         LV_GetText(TT, Item + 1)
      }
   }
   ToolTip, %TT%

Re: showing a ToolTip when Mouse cursor over on items of ListView

charm! :clap:

thank you just me !

p.s:
1. in the Listview,
how i can add extra different text in the tooltip for each lv_add instead just show the name of each lv_add ?

Edit:
think i solved this:

Code: Select all

#NoEnv
SetBatchLines,  -1

; GUI: added control variables

Gui, Add, ListView, vLV1, Test
LV_Add("", "tomer")
LV_Add("", "mike")
LV_Add("", "david")
Gui, Show, , Test

OnMessage(0x0200, "WM_MOUSEMOVE")
Return

GuiClose:
ExitApp

WM_MOUSEMOVE(wParam, lParam, Msg, Hwnd) {
   ; LVM_HITTEST   -> docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/Controls/lvm-hittest
   ; LVHITTESTINFO -> docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/Commctrl/ns-commctrl-taglvhittestinfo
   TT := ""
 If (A_GuiControl = "LV1") {
      VarSetCapacity(LVHTI, 24, 0) ; LVHITTESTINFO
      , NumPut(lParam & 0xFFFF, LVHTI, 0, "Int")
      , NumPut((lParam >> 16) & 0xFFFF, LVHTI, 4, "Int")
      , Item := DllCall("SendMessage", "Ptr", Hwnd, "UInt", 0x1012, "Ptr", 0, "Ptr", &LVHTI, "Int") ; LVM_HITTEST
      If (Item >= 0) && (NumGet(LVHTI, 8, "UInt") & 0x0E) { ; LVHT_ONITEM
         Gui, ListView, %A_GuiControl%
         LV_GetText(TT, Item + 1)
      }
   }
   if TT = tomer
	ToolTip, %TT% text1
   else
	if TT = mike
		ToolTip, %TT% text2
   else
	if TT = david
	     ToolTip, %TT% text3
	else
		 ToolTip
   
}
(maybe better method ?)

2. for what SetBatchLines, -1 needed for this kind of script ?
I didnt notice any difference

Hi Tomer,

1. If all ListView items are unique, I'd prefer an associative array:

Code: Select all

#NoEnv
SetBatchLines,  -1

ItemTips := []
; GUI: added control variables
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn1, Over your mouse here 1 - works! :)
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn2, Over your mouse here 2 - [email protected] :)
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn3, Over your mouse here 3 - works# :)
Gui, Add, ListView, vLV1, Test
LV_Add("", "tomer")
ItemTips["tomer"] := "Tomer's ToolTip"
LV_Add("", "mike")
ItemTips["mike"] := "Mike's ToolTip"
LV_Add("", "david")
ItemTips["david"] := "David's ToolTip"
Gui, Show, , Test

OnMessage(0x0200, "WM_MOUSEMOVE")
Return

GuiClose:
ExitApp

WM_MOUSEMOVE(wParam, lParam, Msg, Hwnd) {
   ; LVM_HITTEST   -> docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/Controls/lvm-hittest
   ; LVHITTESTINFO -> docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/Commctrl/ns-commctrl-taglvhittestinfo
   Global ItemTips
   TT := ""
   If A_GuiControl In Btn1,Btn2,Btn3
      GuiControlGet, TT, , %A_GuiControl%
   Else If (A_GuiControl = "LV1") {
      VarSetCapacity(LVHTI, 24, 0) ; LVHITTESTINFO
      , NumPut(lParam & 0xFFFF, LVHTI, 0, "Int")
      , NumPut((lParam >> 16) & 0xFFFF, LVHTI, 4, "Int")
      , Item := DllCall("SendMessage", "Ptr", Hwnd, "UInt", 0x1012, "Ptr", 0, "Ptr", &LVHTI, "Int") ; LVM_HITTEST
      If (Item >= 0) && (NumGet(LVHTI, 8, "UInt") & 0x0E) { ; LVHT_ONITEM
         Gui, ListView, %A_GuiControl%
         LV_GetText(ItemText, Item + 1)
         TT := ItemTips[ItemText]
      }
   }
   ToolTip, %TT%
}
2. WM_MOUSEMOVE notifications may be posted at frequent intervals. That's why the script should process them as fast as possible to reduce the chance to miss some of them.

This is how I did it:

blah1 = This is blah1

That's a task for GuiContextMenu::

Code: Select all

#NoEnv
SetBatchLines,  -1

ItemTips := []
; GUI: added control variables
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn1, Over your mouse here 1 - works! :)
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn2, Over your mouse here 2 - [email protected] :)
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn3, Over your mouse here 3 - works# :)
Gui, Add, ListView, vLV1, Test
LV_Add("", "tomer")
ItemTips["tomer"] := "Tomer's ToolTip"
LV_Add("", "mike")
ItemTips["mike"] := "Mike's ToolTip"
LV_Add("", "david")
ItemTips["david"] := "David's ToolTip"
Gui, Show, , Test

Return

GuiClose:
ExitApp

GuiContextMenu:
   If (A_GuiEvent = "RightClick")
   {
      TT := ""
      If A_GuiControl In Btn1,Btn2,Btn3
         GuiControlGet, TT, , %A_GuiControl%
      Else If (A_GuiControl = "LV1") && (A_EventInfo)
      {
         Gui, ListView, %A_GuiControl%
         If (A_EventInfo = LV_GetNext())
         {
            LV_GetText(ItemText, A_EventInfo)
            TT := ItemTips[ItemText]
         }
      }
      ToolTip, %TT%
      If !(TT = "")
         SetTimer, RemoveToolTip, -1000
   }

EDIT2:

Another example of code I always think "that cannot work" at first glance, but it actually does. If you really want to use the left mouse button, I suggest the following:

Code: Select all

#NoEnv
SetBatchLines,  -1

ItemTips := []
; GUI: added control variables
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn1, Over your mouse here 1 - works! :)
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn2, Over your mouse here 2 - [email protected] :)
Gui, Add, Button, vBtn3, Over your mouse here 3 - works# :)
Gui, Add, ListView, vLV1, Test
LV_Add("", "tomer")
ItemTips["tomer"] := "Tomer's ToolTip"
LV_Add("", "mike")
ItemTips["mike"] := "Mike's ToolTip"
LV_Add("", "david")
ItemTips["david"] := "David's ToolTip"
Gui, Show, , Test

Return

GuiClose:
ExitApp

GuiContextMenu:
   If (A_GuiEvent = "RightClick") {
      OnMessage(0x0201, "")
      TT := ""
      If A_GuiControl In Btn1,Btn2,Btn3
         GuiControlGet, TT, , %A_GuiControl%
      Else If (A_GuiControl = "LV1") && (A_EventInfo) {
         Gui, ListView, %A_GuiControl%
         If (A_EventInfo = LV_GetNext()) {
            LV_GetText(ItemText, A_EventInfo)
            TT := ItemTips[ItemText]
         }
      }
      ToolTip, %TT%
      If (TT <> "")
         OnMessage(0x0201, "WM_LBUTTONDOWN")
   }
Return

WM_LBUTTONDOWN() {
   Global TT
   If (TT <> "") {
      TT := ""
      ToolTip
   }
   OnMessage(0x0201, "")
   ; If the ListView was clicked, prevent message processing which might cause the selection of a new item.
   If (A_GuiControl = "LV1")
      Return 0
