OK. I finally got it  8) In the file there can not be commands (i.e. switches), only text...

Now that this mystery is solved, I'd like to move to the next problem. How to send keystrokes first to original program (to call the popup) and then to the newly popup-ed window. Does it have to be command line batch?

In any way, I'd like to call it from FARR.

Thanks for bearing with me.

Joc.

How do I make file mode (-f) work. Is this text file? What should be in it?
Like you say, it's a textfile that contains the same keystrokes you can use on the commandline. For each new-line there's the same delay as there is between separated keystrokes. You can even use the ## and #% 'MouseStrokes' and #$ 'ClipboardStrokes' if you like.

Hm... No matter what I do, I always (and only) invoke help window (nothing more)... As if "-?" I am using the version you sent me above...

Hi

I am new to this tool and I can not figure out how to disable debug window appearing.

e.g.:
"C:\Progiz\WinSendKeys\WinSendKeys.exe" -w "Write:" "write something"

I get a window "Debug" "Help: 0 Cmd: 3"... after clicking it, keystrokes are sent...

Thanks.

Find And Run Robot / Troubles configuring FarrFox
« on: December 29, 2007, 01:41 PM »
No, mater what changes I made to this plugin, none of them gets saved. Actually, the settings I make are not used at all.

The problem is, I have FireFox configured for nonstandard bookmarks file location and now I can not force FarrFox to use the bookmark file location that FireFox uses.

I thought I could set alternative bookmark location (but this setting is not used/saved).

Any suggestions?

Thnx, jOc

Josh actually asked for this and i kind of implemented it in an odd way -- i need to add an alias to make it easier to use. Basically i added a way to tell farr what to do if there are no results found.  See the "The noresults alias" help topic in Advanced Use:
You can now create a special alias called noresults.
If user hits enter when no results are shown, this alias will be triggered.
It can be useful if you want to do something like launch what they type directly (as if it was on path), or invoke another search program, etc.  Just use $$1 in the results.
I will make a default alias for this to make it easier to use.

Aha. I thought there might already be a solution. Thanks!

But I have played with it and I don't get it. Should there be any search pattern? For example, how to throw regedit keyword to system, like it would be throug standard windows run box?

The improvement I do like very much is browsing through folders. I have a folder for which I have set high score. In that folder I put links to folders I use often. What I like is, if I start to type the name of the link (that is in that folder, having favorits links) and pres tab the alias for the link is resolved into path and you can directly browse in that *favorits* folder.

just to make sure: you are saying this is something you already can do, not requesting something new?
Of course this works. And I use it all the times. For example if you would like to browse through a folder that is deep in the hierarchy of the hard disk, what you can do is to put a link to that folder into the folder that FARR seeks. You then just type the name that you gave to link and press type and voila, FARR throws you to that folder and you can search inside that target folder.

Hey mouser and jgpaiva,
please don't be bothered by my comments. As I said FARR is of great value to me, and I will donate some 50 bucks, because I know what it means to develop a great SW. I have never used any services as pay pal or sth similar, but I will learn.

I am a kind of user, that really streams to have in installation and in memory only whats needed. I hate (=don't use) progiz that have millions of features and have fancy resource-eating GUI. I like progiz, where the philosophy keep-it-sweet-and-simple is taken into account.

I wrote 10 mins, but that was partially my fault. I was curious if there is anything usefull. And because I am new to FARRv2 I needed some tome to get familiar with this idea of multiple aliases and also plugins were new for me. Please do not take me wrong, I like this plugins idea (actually I left nwconn and plist), but I have deleted others. I don't need them. And they just make mess when I need to configure stuff. Also with aliases it took me some time to realize there are sections of aliases that could be disabled. Actually I deleted them from a folder (again they just do mess @ configuring).

Now I know all this stuff and next time, it would only take me 1 minute do delete what I don't need.

The improvement I do like very much is browsing through folders. I have a folder for which I have set high score. In that folder I put links to folders I use often. What I like is, if I start to type the name of the link (that is in that folder, having favorits links) and pres tab the alias for the link is resolved into path and you can directly browse in that *favorits* folder.

I don't know if anybody asked for that or it is maybe implemented. One thing I miss (slickRun for example had (actually it still has, but I don't use it anymore) that) if you type something that FARR can not catch that it threw it to system (like you were typing to Run box). This way you could simply type cmd and get console, or maybe regedit... And you would not need aliases for www and similar, because all that works in Run box.

Thanks for all good work!

Absolutely fabulous. I like it. The interface is still clean and it is even more responsive. I like the way it can be configured.

In a meanwhile a colleague pointed me to dash. Althogh nice presentation, the program is far from being as good as farr   :-[

But I do have a minor comment. It took me about 10 minutes to remove almoust all built in aliases and plugins. Although I did steal a few aliases and include them in my personal ones (I like the thing with icons). I would prefer a clean installation, without plugins and without aliases (just keeping existing personal). To remove some aliases I had to manually edit the xml file.

Mouser, your progy rules!
