Hi,

How to stimulate click on selected item on a Listview control, which its LabelEdit Property set to Automatic.

The purpose is i would like to click a button, let say to rename the item (The situation when click on a selected item on listview and labeledit is automatic).

Maybe just like Situation where when right click > select Rename from a file in a Folder.

I'm now try to use the mouse_event API to do it but still can't figure it out currently.

Any methods are welcome, thanks

Well, currently this is what i done:

Declaration:

Private Declare Sub mouse_event Lib "user32" (ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dx As Long, ByVal dy As Long, ByVal cButtons As Long, ByVal dwExtraInfo As Long)
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN = &H2
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP = &H4
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_MIDDLEDOWN = &H20
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_MIDDLEUP = &H40
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_MOVE = &H1
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE = &H8000
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_RIGHTDOWN = &H8
Private Const MOUSEEVENTF_RIGHTUP = &H10

Private Type POINTAPI
    x As Long
    y As Long
End Type
Dim iPoint As POINTAPI

Private Declare Function SetCursorPos Lib "user32" (ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetCursorPos Lib "user32" (lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Long
________________________________

Rename Button:

Private Sub cmdRename_Click()
    If Not ListView.SelectedItem Is Nothing Then
        i = SetCursorPos(iPoint.x, iPoint.y)
        ListView.SetFocus
        mouse_event MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN Or MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP, iPoint.x, iPoint.y, 0&, 0& 'cButt, dwEI
    End If
End Sub
________________________________

Code to loading the data into ListView:

OpenConnection "Select Mass_id, Mass_name, Tablename, FilteredBy from " & TableMassCom, GlobalADO
    ListView.Sorted = False
    For i = 1 To GlobalADO.RecordCount
        ListView.ListItems.Add i, , "" & GlobalADO.Fields!Mass_name 'Mass_name
        ListView.ListItems(i).Tag = "" & GlobalADO.Fields!Mass_id 'Mass_id
        ListView.ListItems(i).SubItems(1) = "" & GlobalADO.Fields!FilteredBy 'FilteredBy
        ListView.ListItems(i).ListSubItems(1).Tag = "" & GlobalADO.Fields!TableName 'Tablename
        GlobalADO.MoveNext
    Next i
    ListView.Sorted = True
    If ListView.ListItems.Count > 0 Then ListView.ListItems(1).Selected = True: iPoint.x = ListView.ListItems(1).Left + 20: iPoint.y = ListView.ListItems(1).Top + (ListView.ListItems(1).Height) / 2

Almost perfect.. but is there an alternative?
