Anyone used TMS TAdvListView?

Hi

Ive just been looking at www.tmssoftware.com and found a component TAdvListView. Theres so much in there im having problems trying to get a grips with it. All I want to do is add items with about 5 columns :)

What im asking is has anyone ever used this component and if so could I have the .pas file to see how to use it please.

Many thanks

hi,
Here is the solution
if u still have any problems do let me know. Name of the TAdvListView is "lst" in this example;

TListItem *lst_item;
lst.Items.BeginUpdate();
lst.Items.Clear(); //clears the items
lst_item = lst.Items.Add(); //new item is added
lst_item.ImageIndex = 0; //sets the image for the item
lst_item.Caption = "Major Caption";
lst_item.SubItems.Add("SubItem no 1");
lst_item.SubItems.Add("SubItem no 2");
lst_item.SubItems.Add("SubItem no 3");
lst_item.SubItems.Add("SubItem no 4");
lst.Items.EndUpdate();

Thanks for the code but it didnt work. All types of problems with it. if you dont mind me saying, simple stuff like setting strings wrong e.g.

lst_item.SubItems.Add("SubItem no 1");

and the difference between = and :=
e.g.

lst_item.Caption = "Major Caption";


I tried to modify what you wrote to get this:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
lst_item :TListItem;
begin
//TListItem *lst_item;
lst.Items.BeginUpdate();
lst.Items.Clear(); //clears the items
lst_item := lst.Items.Add(); //new item is added
lst_item.ImageIndex := 0; //sets the image for the item
lst_item.Caption := 'Major Caption';
lst_item.SubItems.Add('SubItem no 1');
lst_item.SubItems.Add('SubItem no 2');
lst_item.SubItems.Add('SubItem no 3');
lst_item.SubItems.Add('SubItem no 4');
lst.Items.EndUpdate();

end;

but nothing appeared on the listview.
Sorry, im gonna have to reject this answer.

ok sorry for the above code, that was originally written for c builder. anyways here is the pas code. The reason u r not able to see the newly added item is the ViewStyle property of the list view. if it is "VsReport" then u have to add 5 columns at the design time, after that u will be able to add new items. or simply chnage the ViewStyle  property to anything but "vsReport". Hopefully this will solve ur problem. Also drop a imagelist component on the form and add couple of images to it, if u want to see the images associated with each item u add. dont forget to specify the name of the image list u just added to the SmallImages property of the list view,

unit populate_listview;
interface
uses Windows,Messages,Classes,ComCtrls,AdvListV;
procedure PopulateListView(list:TAdvListView);
implementation
var newListItem:TListItem;
procedure PopulateListView(list:TAdvListView);
begin
   newListItem := TListItem(list.items);
   newListItem := list.Items.Add;
   newListItem.Caption := 'Main Caption';
   newListItem.ImageIndex := 0; //setting of image to the list item
   newListItem.SubItems.Add('Sub Item no 1'); //adding subitems to the list view
   newListItem.SubItems.Add('Sub Item no 2');
   newListItem.SubItems.Add('Sub Item no 3');
   newListItem.SubItems.Add('Sub Item no 4');
end;
end.

hammadmajeed you shouldnt be really posting as an Answer.

Use the first part of hammadmajeeds last comment but the code I have is :

procedure init;
begin
  with AdvListView1 do
  begin
    with Items.Add do
    begin
      Caption:='<b>TAdvEdit</b>';
      SubItems.Add('D2 D3 D4 D5 D6');
      SubItems.Add('Aug 20, 2001');
      SubItems.Add('<a href="http://www.tmssoftware.com/advedit.htm">View</a>');
      SubItems.Add('Data aware and non data aware edit control with lots of features including focus color, error color, attached label, validated input ... ');
    end;
end;


Remember for each subitem there has to be a column defined in design time.
I will admit its a bit of a pain to get to grips with but its quite a good looking comp.
