TLB_CREATE

This command creates a new internal TreeListBox but does not show it yet. To show the dialog, you have to call TLB_SHOW afterwards.

Parameters

  • title (strValue) - specifies the title of the dialog.
  • oktext (strValue, optional) - specifies the text for the OK-Button. Default is "OK".
  • canceltext (strValue, optional) - specifies the text for the Cancel-Button. Default is "Cancel" or a similar expression in another language (depending on the language of your OS).
  • boxtext (strValue, optional) - specifies the title text for the TreeListBox (the text which is displayed above the upper left corner of the TLB).
  • button-w (intValue, optional) - specifies the width of the buttons (in logical/appfont coordinates).
  • no-cancel (boolValue, optional) - specifies that no Cancel-Button should be displayed, if the value is 1.
  • no-help (boolValue, optional) - specifies that no Help-Button should be displayes if the value is 1.
  • x (intValue, optional) - specifies the startup x position of the dialog (in logical/appfont coordinates, relative to the parent window). Must be used together with parameter y.
  • y (intValue, optional) - specifies the startup y position of the dialog (in logical/appfont coordinates, relative to the parent window). Must be used together with parameter x.
  • w (intValue, optional) - specifies the startup width of the dialog (in logical/appfont coordinates). Must be used together with parameter h.
  • h (intValue, optional) - specifies the startup height of the dialog (in logical/appfont coordinates). Must be used together with parameter w.
  • sizeable (boolValue) - has to be set to 0 if the dialog shall be of fixed size. The default value is 1, which means that the dialog is sizeable.
  • max-w (intValue, optional) - specifies the maximum width to which the user can resize the dialog (in logical/appfont coordinates). Must be used together with parameter max-h.
  • max-h (intValue, optional) - specifies the maximum height to which the user can resize the dialog (in logical/appfont coordinates). Must be used together with parameter max-w.
  • min-w (intValue, optional) - specifies the minimum width to which the user can resize the dialog (in logical/appfont coordinates). Must be used together with parameter min-h.
  • min-h (intValue, optional) - specifies the minimum height to which the user can resize the dialog (in logical/appfont coordinates). Must be used together with parameter min-w.
  • searchable (boolValue, optional) - specifies that the user can search the entries of the TreeListBox via a popup menu entry if the value is 1.
  • sorted (boolValue, optional) - specifies that the entries in the TreeListBox are sorted alphabetically if the value is 1.s
  • flat (boolValue, optional) - specifies that a TreeListBox cannot have any child entries if the value is 1.
  • columns (intValue, optional) - specifies the number of columns the TLB has. The default values is 1. The maximum number of columns is 16.
  • multi-sel (boolValue, optional) - specifies that the user can select more than 1 entry by using Ctrl or Shift.
  • no-child-sel (boolValue, optional) - specifies that the user cannot select any child entries.
  • no-parent-sel (boolValue, optional) - specifies that the user cannot select any parent entries.
  • checklistbox (boolValue, optional) - specifies that it will be a flat list with checkboxes on the left side.
  • setdblclick (boolValue, optional) - specifies that if the user double clicks an item the dialog is closed with endbutton = "OK".
  • okbutton-enabled (boolValue, optional) - specifies the initial ok button state (enabled or not). This is of course only true, if after TLB_CREATE no select command is called, before showing the TreeListBox. Default is to have the ok button disabled (if initially nothing is selected). Use okbutton-enabled:1 to allow clicking on the ok button without any selection made.
  • parentid (intValue, optional) -
  • is-parent (boolValue, optional) -
  • bitmap (strValue, optional) -
  • bitmap2 (strValue, optional) -

Returns

  • ecode (intValue) - as follows 0 = no error occured, 1 = user canceled dialog, 2 = you have to call TLB_CREATE before calling this function, 3 = an argument is missing, 4 = you passed an invalid ID

Details

If you use searchable:1 the flag checklistbox is ignored
If you use checklistbox:1 the flags multi-sel, no-child-sel, no-parent-sel, sorted, flat and searchable are ignored. It is always flat, NOT sorted, NOT searchable and you can select all entries!

If you use TLB_CREATE and TLB_SHOW in conjunction with MSGWIN, take care to avoid the following order of AdoScript commands,
as this will crash the ADOxx Modelling Toolkit

  1. MSGWIN
  2. TLB_CREATE
  3. MSGWIN hide
  4. TLB_SHOW

The crash occurs as the parent of the TreeListBox (MSGWIN) does not exist anymore when the TreeListBox is shown.
