SOLVED TreeViewFunctions, two LV_USER fields

I want a treeview (more a treeList) with two LV_USER fields and no LV_TREE field.
I started with the given example and I succeed, but the text colors are incorrect.
Initially all white, but after a click all black.
How can I set the text foreground and background color?
The background color is actually defined by the usergui.
customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_ALTERNATE_BG, True) # Alternate background per line.

81de0c8d-c816-4eec-9017-6bfcf5978cba-image.png

I tried setting the text color using GeUserArea.DrawSetTextCol(c4d.Vector(0,0,0), c4d.Vector(128,128,128)) and GeUserArea.DrawSetPen(c4d.Vector(255,255,255)) but no success.

Here some code.

        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_HAS_HEADER, True) # True if the tree view may have a header line.
        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_HIDE_LINES, False) # True if no lines should be drawn.
        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_MOVE_COLUMN, True) # True if the user can move the columns.
        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_RESIZE_HEADER, True) # True if the column width can be changed by the user.
        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_FIXED_LAYOUT, True) # True if all lines have the same height.
        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_ALTERNATE_BG, True) # Alternate background per line.
        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_CURSORKEYS, True) # True if cursor keys should be processed.
        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_NOENTERRENAME, False) # Suppresses the rename popup when the user presses enter.

        customgui.SetBool(c4d.TREEVIEW_OUTSIDE_DROP, True) # True if an object may be dropped under all the objects in the tree view.

        return 

Hi @pim can you share the whole code, here in R20.059 or either in S22 with this example C4D TreeView Example I can't reproduce your issue.

Cheers,
Maxime.

I changed following line. LV_TREE to LV_USER

        #layout.SetLong(ID_NAME, c4d.LV_TREE)
        layout.SetLong(ID_NAME, c4d.LV_USER)

And in DrawCell() I added the handling of ID_NAME

    def DrawCell(self, root, userdata, obj, col, drawinfo, bgColor):
        """
        Draw into a Cell, only called for column of type LV_USER
        """
        
        if col == ID_NAME:
            name = "Pim: " + obj.otherData
            geUserArea = drawinfo["frame"]
            w = geUserArea.DrawGetTextWidth(name)
            h = geUserArea.DrawGetFontHeight()
            xpos = drawinfo["xpos"]
            ypos = drawinfo["ypos"] + drawinfo["height"]
            drawinfo["frame"].DrawText(name, xpos, ypos - h * 1.1)
            
        if col == ID_OTHER:
            name = obj.otherData
            geUserArea = drawinfo["frame"]
            w = geUserArea.DrawGetTextWidth(name)
            h = geUserArea.DrawGetFontHeight()
            xpos = drawinfo["xpos"]
            ypos = drawinfo["ypos"] + drawinfo["height"]
            drawinfo["frame"].DrawText(name, xpos, ypos - h * 1.1)

This is the result:
Initially all white:
ddf89f82-899a-4b1d-a249-d2b756348fc2-image.png

After adding all black:
a958dee8-4079-4e7d-b864-fc5ea3d84f18-image.png

So, how can I set the text color?

Hi,

you need to set fore- and background colour before text drawing operations with GeUserArea.DrawSetTextCol. There is probably something else drawing in that user area and changing these values. And when your method is being called, it then uses these changed fore- and background colours.

I tried that, but it did not work correctly. It did not give the wanted result.

#geUserArea.DrawSetTextCol(c4d.Vector(255,255,255), c4d.Vector(128,128,128))
#geUserArea.DrawSetPen(c4d.Vector(255,255,255))

Background should alternate and the foreground should be white.
I tried a lot of color, but could not get the correct combination.

Hi,

you have the background color of the current row in the drawinfo dictionary which is being passed to the method.

Hi @pim so far I can't replicate it,
here the full code, if you still have issue please share your entire code, without that we can't help more.
