The AutoIt GUICtrlCreateListViewItem function is used to create items in a ListView control.

To create an item in a control, you will have to specify the text, of the item to be created, and the listviewID in the second parameter.

Parameters

textRequiredThe text value of the item – if multiple columns, separated by pipe "|" characters, or the character specified by Opt("GUIDataSeparatorChar")
listviewIDOptionalThe text of the window to activate.

Example

The below example shows both how to create a ListView control, and how to insert items into the list – you may also want to follow the AutoIt tutorial mentioned earlier.
