PostPosted: Sat 01 Feb 2014, 21:42    Post_subject:  keeping the 'selected-row' when refreshing a <tree> list
Sub_title: ... I fail (pretty much) every time!
 

I am using code based on this popup right click menu: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=448176#448176

I have a GUI with a <tree> in it .. when i select an item in the tree, a popup menu (another gtkdialog menu) is called, and when it's done, i want the tree selection to remain the same in the 1st (main) GUI... currently the selection goes back to the top ...

I have got as far as recording the line number in a file, and when I quit the GUI and start it up again, it works ... but not when I double click a tree item, do stuff, and refresh it...

... essentially, i get the line number of the chosen tree item (in a dumb hacky way), then write it to a file, and hope the selected-row property will pick it up... which it does, but only after a full restart of the GUI ... I want it to work when the tree is refreshed.. I have it set to auto-refresh, so I though it should work...


snippet:
Code:
    <tree selected_row="'`cat /tmp/lineno`'" auto_refresh="true" has_focus="true" hover_selection="false" column-sort-function="0|0|1|1">
       <label>'$TREE_LABELS'</label>
       <height>'$HEIGHT_TREE'</height>
      <variable>CHOOSER</variable>
       <input icon_column="0">cat "'$WORKDIR'/ls"</input>
      ## the cursor-changed signal will refresh INFO using joypad navigation of rom list
      <action signal="button-release-event">enable: PLAYNOW</action>
      <action signal="cursor-changed">filecheck</action>
      <action signal="cursor-changed">refresh:INFO</action>
      <action signal="cursor-changed">refresh:BOXART</action>
      <action>export lineno=`cat "'$WORKDIR'/files" | grep -F -B2000 "${CHOOSER}" | wc -l`; echo $lineno > /tmp/lineno</action>
       <action>browser_change_dir</action> ## I M P O R T A N T
       <action>refresh:CHOOSER</action>
       <action>refresh:DIR</action>
    </tree>


.... Also, on a side note, why doesnt this ..

Code:
export lineno=`cat "'$WORKDIR'/files" | grep -F -B2000 "${CHOOSER}" | wc -l`; echo $lineno > /tmp/lineno


work the same as this..

Code:
export lineno=`grep -F -B2000 "${CHOOSER} "'$WORKDIR'/files" | wc -l`; echo $lineno > /tmp/lineno



..?? ... the first will successfully write the line number to a file, the second will not ...

I've made a bit of progress, although I have not achieved the results I want...


I can do 1 of two things:


1. If I remove the <action>refresh:CHOOSER</action> then the current line remains selected after executing it... However, the auto update of infomation in the tree becomes disabled..

2. If I keep the <action>refresh:CHOOSER</action>, then the current line does NOT remain selected after executing it - the selection returns to whatever it as defined as when the GUI first loaded up... Although keeping the refresh:CHOOSER does re-enable the auto-refresh of each entry in the tree, when I update the details..


So... How can I keep the selected item AND keep auto-update the tree enabled??

Any gktdialog experts wanna point me in the right direction?

From what I've experienced, only stuff within <input></input> and <input file></input> can be refreshed/changed on-the-fly, therefore all other parameters (like tag attributes, e.g. selected-row=...) remain static once window gets created.

Don't know if this suits your purposes, but perhaps take a look at Ziggy's Pmusic - he has resolved the problem with <tree> refreshing quite cleverly, using an icon to indicate currently selected item in the playlist.

Just launch Pmusic (v4.2.1 here), add some tracks to the playlist and examine /root/.pmusic/tmp/xml_pmusic (part of code that starts with <tree name="playlist") and /root/.pmusic/tmp/playlist.
