Syntax
<Result> = <Control to use>.Add([<Element> [, <Path of image to display>]])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the element was added,
  • False otherwise.
<Control to use>: Control name
Name of control to use.
<Element>: Optional character string (with quotes)
Element that will be added into the specified control. If this parameter is not specified, an empty row is added into the List Box or Combo Box control.
This parameter can contain:
  • Carriage Return characters (CR) to add several elements.
  • tabs (TAB) to obtain a multi-element List Box control (see Notes).
  • gLink to indicate the value that will be returned when the element is selected.
WINDEV For a Carousel control, the content of this parameter is displayed in the top left corner of Carousel control.
WINDEVJava For a ListView control, this parameter corresponds to the image caption. This parameter can contain Carriage Return characters (CR) to add several elements. In this case:
  • if <Path of image to display> is not specified, the added elements will be associated with the default image (defined in the "Details" tab of the description window of control).
  • if <Path of image to display> is specified, only the first element will be added. This element will be associated with the specified image.
Java The Carriage Return characters (CR) are supported while the tabulations (TAB) are not supported.
<Path of image to display>: Optional character string (with quotes)
Name and path of image that will be added into a ListView control. You also have the ability to use an image memo item.
This parameter is taken into account for ListView controls displayed in ListView mode only.
If this parameter is not specified, the default image (defined in the "Details" tab in the description window of control) will be used.
Universal Windows 10 App This parameter is not available.
Remarks

List Boxes containing more than 10 000 elements

The maximum number of elements found in a List Box control is limited by the available memory (theoretical maximum: 2 billion rows). Nevertheless, filling a List Box control with an important number of elements (more than 10 000) affects the performances
To add an important number of elements into a List Box control, we recommend that you use a browsing List Box control (which means a list directly linked to a HFSQL data file).

Visibility/Invisibility of elements in a List Box or Combo Box control

To make an element invisible in a List Box or Combo Box control, use gLink.
WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppJavaUser code (UMC)

Equivalence

The two following syntaxes are equivalent:
<Control name>.Add([<Element>])
and
<List name>[Subscript] = <Element>
WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppJavaUser code (UMC)

Sorted/Unsorted List Box control

  • If the List Box control is sorted, the new element is inserted according to the sort order.
  • If the List Box control is not sorted, the new element is added at the end of the list.
The control type (sorted or not) is chosen during the control description ("Details" tab).

We recommend that you use <List Box>.Add rather than <List Box>.Insert to add an element into a sorted List Box control.
WINDEVUser code (UMC)

Customizing the elements found in a List Box or Combo Box control

To customize the elements found in a List Box or Combo Box control (background color, image, drawing, ...), use the Functions for managing graphic strings.
WINDEVUser code (UMC)

Tabulations: Multi-element List Box control

To manage the tabulations in a List Box control (for aligning columns), use the TAB constant. For example:
LIST_Customer.Add(LastName + TAB + FirstName)
In this example, all the first names start at the same position and are aligned one under the other.
Remark: The first call to <List Box>.Add defines the position of tabulations. These positions will be taken as reference for all values added thereafter. Similarly, if values have been typed entered in the editor, the positions of these values are taken as reference. During the first call to <List Box>.Add, we advise you to define the width of columns with Complete. For example, to fix the width of columns found in "CUSTOMERS" to 10 characters:
LIST_Customer.Add(Complete(LastName, 10) + TAB + Complete(FirstName, 10))

Miscellaneous

  • To add elements into a Table control, use <Table>.Add.
  • <List Box>.Add can be used on:
    • a column of type"Combo Box" in a Table control.
    • A "Table" Combo Box control.
