Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app)
« on: January 16, 2018, 08:11 PM »
How do I hide the tray condition? I only need the temp.

Only the temperature icon can be hidden.

Sounds like a reverse PTR record isn't set properly for the mail server hostname that's being used.  Most big-name domains won't even talk to an email server that doesn't have a proper PTR record in place.

Well done, all.  =]

For the item which don't have 'Title' content, it works not very well, it can't be switched most time.

I'm working on some internal changes that might help with this.  Stay tuned.


Nice program, I took a different approach with Shortcuts Creator which allows users to generate short hotstrings to launch folders, documents, webpages or programs.

Thanks, mat2016.  A few years ago, I wrote a program called Splat that has some similarities to your program.  You can check it out here: http://skwire.dcmemb...s.com/fp/?page=splat

100% perfect !
Great support.  Thanks a lot. :Thmbsup:

You're welcome.  I really should add some code to detect that condition and adjust accordingly.   :D

Some shortcut to activate this ?

Try this:

  • Close down AnuVu.
  • In the Anuran folder, find the config.ini file and open it in Notepad.
  • Find the H_Sep=### (where ### is some number) value.
  • Change the vaule to something fairly small:  H_Sep=100
  • Save the file in Notepad and launch AnuVu.

Let us know if that fixes things.

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 Release: SubAHK
« on: January 09, 2018, 12:12 AM »
Hi, Skwire - I just wanted to leave a comment on your thread to get rid of the "0 replies" in red letters next to your NANY entry...  Looks interesting, but I'm not even sure what a subsonic server is.  But I love it when people make things for the NANY, even if I never heard of the things they are doing.

Hehehehe...thanks.  I knew SubAHK would be a niche application because it's a Subsonic-specific program so I didn't expect much in the way of replies.  Subsonic is a media streaming daemon that I use to stream my music collection to various clients (desktop, Android, iOS, etc.).  You can find out more at http://www.subsonic.org or you can check out the author's demo server at http://demo.subsonic.org/

Hi, RainrooM.  Would you please show me a screenshot of what you're seeing?  If the information is sensitive, feel free to private message me the image or simply redact the sensitive parts.

Living Room / Re: Whatsapp Desktop: can it do videocalls?
« on: January 06, 2018, 06:02 PM »
Disclaimer: I DO NOT use Whatsapp, Facebook, Messenger, etc.

However, I did some research for you and, as best as I can find, there currently is no video/calling capability in the Whatsapp desktop client.  That is, the desktop client can only do text-based messaging.

Working well here skwire with the one window I tried it with (wraith's Plain Tasks) :up:

Good to hear.  Thanks for the report.

This program is excellent for laptops where the top/bottom portion of the screen has failed.

Quite an interesting use for it.   Thanks for sharing the idea.  :Thmbsup:

« on: January 02, 2018, 09:33 PM »
Is it possible for it to display severe alerts for the location that is being shown by it? If so, please add an option to do that.

IIRC, that information is not in the RSS feeds that power sWeather.  Apologies.

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / NANY 2018 Release: SubAHK
« on: January 01, 2018, 02:09 AM »
NANY 2018 Entry Information

Application Name SubAHK
Supported OSes Windows 7 (Probably works, but not tested, on Windows XP/Vista/8/10)
Web Page Website
Download Link Download
Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Subsonic desktop client. I’ve run my own personal Subsonic server for many years and make use of several different clients depending on platform. However, none have the sort of easy playlist manipulation I want, so I started writing SubAHK.

  • To make use of SubAHK, you must run, or have access to, a fully licensed Subsonic server (or use one of the license-not-needed forks mentioned below). That said, please consider running the official Subsonic product and supporting its author with a paid Premium License.
  • SubAHK is not feature complete at this time. This release of SubAHK only has the playlist manipulation features I wanted. That is, currently, it doesn’t even support playback of files. I do plan to further develop SubAHK as time allows.
  • SubAHK makes use of the official Subsonic API. Therefore, I have no idea if it works with any of the Subsonic forks out there such as MadSonic, AirSonic, etc. If these forks support the official Subsonic API, they should work. No promises, though.

Screenshots

Usage
Installation
Download the zip file and extract its contents into a new folder.  Run SubAHK.exe and choose Options from the menu.  Enter your server credentials and off you go.

Uninstallation
Exit the application and delete the folder you unzipped it to.

15
I suggest to add option 'Always on top' to have additional benefit for a window.

Can do.

Please direct any new replies to the WHAT (Window Hotkey Activator Tool) NANY 2018 thread for this app.  I'm going to lock this one.

NANY 2018 Entry Information

Application Name WHAT (Window Hotkey Activator Tool)
Supported OSes Windows 7 (Probably works, but not tested, on Windows XP/Vista/8/10)
Web Page Website
Download Link Download
Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Assign hotkeys to activate/focus windows.  This was a recent request by stisev on 2017-12-20; the original thread was here.

Screenshots

main.png
options.png

Usage
Installation
Download the zip file and extract its contents into a new folder.  Run What.exe to start the application.

Notes
  • The window matching comprises the following criteria: process name, window title, and window class.  You will almost certainly have to play around a bit with the text to get certain windows to activate and, even then, some may not.  Furthermore, you do not need to use all three criterion for a given hotkey.  Don't be afraid to experiment.
  • While the add/edit hotkey dialog is open, all hotkeys are disabled.  They are enabled after you click the save button or close the add/edit hotkey dialog.
  • Checkboxes in the main list enable and disable individual hotkeys.
  • You can assign the same hotkey to multiple entries and it will activate all the windows in top-down order.  You can easily change the order in the list.
  • Check out the Options menu for a few usability options.
  • The hotkey selection GUI is such that you can specify just about any combination of keys, mouse buttons, and modifiers.  Go crazy.

Uninstallation
Exit the application and delete the folder you unzipped it to.

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: BaseImage
« on: December 31, 2017, 06:25 PM »
For webpages, bear in mind that the encoded image is *very* long.

Yep.  I am fully aware of base64 encoding (email attachments, etc.) but never realised that they could be used in a webpage like that.  =]  Quite slick.

« on: December 31, 2017, 06:16 PM »
I must admit I have never heard of base64-encoded html images -- but it looks neat.

Me, neither.  However, I did have a play with it and it works as designed.  I dragged an image, copied the img tag to a page on my website, and it worked perfectly.  Pretty cool, actually, when you think about it.  I could see using this instead of actual image files which would make it MUCH easier to move webpages that used static images.  I just might make extensive use of this when I move my current site to the new DC server.

Very cool, BGM.  Thank you for sharing.

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 Release: Dualcopy
« on: December 29, 2017, 03:20 PM »
What copy app you use? Or just use plain and simple windows copy?
I strongly recommend Teracopy.

My main file manager is Altap Salamander so I use the built-in move/copy manager it has.  I very rarely use regular Windows Explorer.

« on: December 28, 2017, 03:45 PM »
Anyone try this?

I think it looks great, but I use neither Teracopy nor Fastcopy, so I can't test this out.

Here's the initial release. Unless somebody comes up with a better name, it's currently called WHAT (Window Hotkey Activator Tool).  Here's a couple of screenshots:

Once we get closer to the turn of the year, I'll add this to the 2018 NANY page.   :Thmbsup:

I can easily do this one.

Sounds like irfanview would fit the bill too, though i dont know about the renaming part.

In IrfanView, press F2 to rename the displayed image.
