Android Apps / Re: Mouser Android Apps Updated 11/14/18

Correct. When tapping the widget, the slides open in the normal UI in the usual colors.

2
Creating an installer, f.e. using InnoSetup, that doesn't actually install anything, could provide you with that.

Btw, when(/how) should this AUP be shown?

I just want to make sure you aren't saying I broke something in the PBOL widget or changed its default color.
Well, the default color did change to dark (black), where it was something greyish before (don't recall the exact color though), and also the progress bars are now green where they used to be blue (AFAIR) :-[, now that you mention you might have broken something...

Well, the setting to override the 'default' font color doesn't seem to be applied. The setting itself does stick though.

How can I change the font-color of the widgets?
For PBOL it changed to smt rather dark, so now it's barely readable on my darkish-blue background image. Can't find that option in the settings...

The file format I will use is not decided yet, so I advise no one spend any time coding anything yet..
was waiting until he decided what that format might be in order to test.
And that is why I'm waiting too... :) :up:

Or put up a request to convert file.
The only reason to convert a logfile is just before putting it into something like LogStash, syslog, or another log agregator. Converting just for display is a last resort only, so no, I shouldn't need (to write) me a converter ;)

Hm, though LogFusion looks like a fine log viewer, I'm afraid it doesn't handle the json-like format that is currently output by ProcessWatcher. We'll have to wait for mouser to choose another format before LogFusion is useful in this context.

I was planning a process lister,
which will show the process names, time etc.,
as they are loaded by the os,
in a small non-focus window.

I think this should be one of the tasks of a GUI on Process Watcher logs.
Maybe you could create that kind of a GUI? (I might start it, depending on available time and motivation)

Another GUI tool/task would be for filtering/searching the log-data, and that could even be the same tool, AFAICS.

NANY 2019 Entry Information

Application Name StringSimilarity
Version 1.2.0.0
Short Description Compare 2 strings/texts giving a distance/proximity score using several algorithms
Supported OSes Windows 7 or newer (.NET 4.5 or newer required)
Web Page TODO
Download Link TODO / Attached to this post
System Requirements
  • Windows 7/8/10
  • .NET 4.5 or newer
Version History
  • 2018-11-11 1.2.0.0: NANY Release. Show all algorithm results in a grid
  • 2018-10-26 1.1.0.0: (not released) Added extra algorithms, restore screen size/position and settings.
  • 2018-10-24 1.0.0.0: Initial release
Author Link to Ath's Profile page


Description
As a response to a request by HelmutWe I searched and found an algorithm that seemed to match the request, and folded that into a C#/WinForms application.
After adding a few similar but different algorithms, also found on the internet, and re-shaping the UI a bit to handle larger texts and a results grid, the current incarnation is now available.

Used algorithms and sources:
AlgorithmSource
Jaro-WinklerRonnie Overby's Jaro-Winkler
Damerau-LevenshteinWicked Shimmy's Damerau Levenshtein
F23 Sorensen-dice coefficientFeature 23's StringSimilarity.NET library
F23 Cosine similarity(see above)
F23 Jaccard index(see above)
F23 Normalized Levenshtein(see above)

Features
Compare 2 strings/texts and calculate their similarity.

Planned Features
Allow to select 2 files and determine their similarity

Screenshots
Initial screen:
StringSimilarity-1.2.0-initial.png

Comparing Similarity and Simelarity
StringSimilarity-1.2.0-similarity.png

Usage
Installation
- Unzip the file to it's own directory
- Run the exe
(A settings.xml file will be created when closing the application)

Using the Application
- Enter some texts to compare
- Select desired options
- Results are updated immediately when both strings are non-empty
- Results can be sorted by clicking a column title

Uninstallation
- Close the application
- Remove all files

Known Issues
To be reported by users, none so far...

Well, about that file-format: I was going to ask you to use real JSON, as the current content isn't quite readable using standard tools/libraries, but also seeing your remark about compact/heaps of data, I'd suggest to switch to CSV, as that's usually the most compact and usable for non-complex data like this (unless you want to put the performance/usage data inside the JSON object ofcourse...).

Continuing on the subject of including performance/usage data: Using (structured) JSON storage would require you to rewrite the entire file when updating a single performance item, so the policy of 'only appending' isn't going to work.
I've suggested (reply #3) to create a file-per-exe for the performance/usage data, and when using CSV that would be a feasible and fast solution, including append-only. It will generate a lot of files though, so a configurable log directory would be nice to have.

I might even be tempted into creating a GUI for this data, but you'd have to have the storage format finalized first.

Ha, sounds interesting.
Most difficult part would be to organize the logging in such way that it actually makes sense when looking at it, without being overwhelmed with 'all that data' :o
Maybe the memory/cpu use-log should be separated, possibly a logfile per exe (path+filename, possibly reversed, and : and \ replaced by another character?) and include the pid inside the logfile to be able to filter on. (Hint: the LogStash family of products, no ties)

16
Your request is very generic, could you add more details, like the application involved, a screenshot, and, also interesting, the motivation for removing it?

You could try to disable your antivirus... that is usually adding a lot of unpredictability to Windows' responsetimes. :o

A second update after 7 years of silence on the WinSendKeys (releases) front:

Changes:
  • Added -i <delay> and initialdelay ini-setting for inserting a milliseconds delay before sending anything to the window
  • Added -s <delay> and senddelay ini-setting for changing the default 5 msec delay between sending each character
  • Added -sd <delay> and senddowndelay ini-setting for changing the default 5 msec key-down delay for each character/key sent

Get it from the first post in this thread.

After 7 years of silence on the WinSendKeys (releases) front, there now is an update:

Changes:
  • If the window (-w argument or from ini file) is not found, the ERRORLEVEL is set to 1 (by user request)
  • Re-compiled with the latest AutoIt3 compiler (v3.3.14.5), so it is up to par with all those modern OS versions :P

Get it from the first post in this thread.

I also updated the defunct links to the old DCMembers site, I should probably have updated a year ago... :-[

two bigger text boxes where i can enter/paste multiple lines of text
add option to check two files
I'll put that on the TODO list for the NANY release.

Also I'll check the source licenses, and at least link to them, later.

Just added a disclaimer I should have included earlier :-[
Searched and found the algorithms and included them in a C#/WinForms app (would have liked to do it in Java, but creating a GUI in/with Java is such a PITA).

Doesn't do anything other than calculate the values, no internet related stuff, no file-I/O (yet, have to add saving/loading settings & position on screen).

Well, here's version 1.0.0 of StringSimilarity. It supports both Lowenstein (distance only, integer value) (Damerau–Levenshtein as it's called in the interwebs) and Jaro-Winkler (distance and proximity, between 0 and 1) algorithms, with optional non-case-sensitive comparison (works for Jaro-Winkler only at the moment).

I'll be posting this sooner or later, and in a somewhat more polished form, as my NANY 2019 entry, for now it's still a bit rough around the edges.

Feedback highly appreciated.

Requirements:
- .NET runtime 4.5.2 or newer (Windows 7 with SP1, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 should all provide that)

Installation:
- Unpack the zip file in a non-OS protected folder (not in Program Files or Windows directories that is)
- Run the .exe

Uninstallation:
- Close the application
- Remove all files

/Edit:
Disclaimer:
- Algorithms sourced on the interwebs

I've been reading up on the subject of string similarity, and it seems that the Jaro-Winkler distance/proximity algorithmw is something that would fit here.

I'll post a tool in a short while.

I'm triggered, but I don't quite understand yet how/what to calculate giving a result between 0 and 1 :huh:

For string-similarity, a technique called 'soundex' was popular, a few decades ago, but I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for?

I will probably re-install SC to see what happens then.
That's not going to help if the OS is causing the issue...

You probably have to clean up the thumbnail cache of Windows 7, a known culprit but there are solutions, this link describes a few methods
