LVFINDINFOW structure

Contains information used when searching for a list-view item. This structure is identical to LV_FINDINFO but has been renamed to fit standard naming conventions.

Syntax

typedef struct tagLVFINDINFOW {
  UINT    flags;
  LPCWSTR psz;
  LPARAM  lParam;
  POINT   pt;
  UINT    vkDirection;
} LVFINDINFOW, *LPFINDINFOW;

Members

flags

Type: UINT

Type of search to perform. This member can be set to one or more of the following values:

Value Meaning
LVFI_PARAM
Searches for a match between this structure's lParam member and the lParam member of an item's LVITEM structure.
LVFI_PARTIAL
Checks to see if the item text begins with the string pointed to by the psz member. This value implies use of LVFI_STRING.
LVFI_STRING
Searches based on the item text. Unless additional values are specified, the item text of the matching item must exactly match the string pointed to by the psz member. However, the search is case-insensitive.
LVFI_SUBSTRING
Windows Vista and later. Equivalent to LVFI_PARTIAL.
LVFI_WRAP
Continues the search at the beginning if no match is found. If this flag is used by itself, it is assumed that a string search is wanted.
LVFI_NEARESTXY
Finds the item nearest to the position specified in the pt member, in the direction specified by the vkDirection member. This flag is supported only by large icon and small icon modes. If LVFI_NEARESTXY is specified, all other flags are ignored.

psz

Type: LPCTSTR

Address of a null-terminated string to compare with the item text. It is valid only if LVFI_STRING or LVFI_PARTIAL is set in the flags member.

lParam

Type: LPARAM

Value to compare with the lParam member of a list-view item's LVITEM structure. It is valid only if LVFI_PARAM is set in the flags member.

pt

Type: POINT

POINT structure with the initial search position. It is valid only if LVFI_NEARESTXY is set in the flags member.

vkDirection

Type: UINT

Virtual key code that specifies the direction to search. The following codes are supported:

  • VK_LEFT
  • VK_RIGHT
  • VK_UP
  • VK_DOWN
  • VK_HOME
  • VK_END
  • VK_PRIOR
  • VK_NEXT
This member is valid only if LVFI_NEARESTXY is set in the flags member.
