##### General Software Discussion / Re: CLCL, Cant access 'Template' if more than 35 items >>
« on: December 12, 2017, 09:19 AM »
I have at most 21 items as templates only, so I have never tested with more entries.
Try to organize your template into folders. That way -all together- I have more than 35 entries as templates.

EDIT
my History sub folders I have set to 99 items at most. They made two columns at 43 item (screen height on laptop)

Don't know why Template sub folder should make a 2nd column after 35 items?
But never disturbs me as I had never that much in a single Template folder.
In normal History I have 500 entries in 7 sub folders and that works fine for years.

##### General Software Discussion / Re: Anyone know a file searcher than can search for X near Y?
« on: August 02, 2017, 05:56 AM »
It occurred to me that often during searching I am looking for some text X that is "near to" some text Y, and I don't know of a tool that can do that..
Where "near" is some configurable distance in bytes.

Does anyone know of such a multi-file search tool with this feature?
-mouser

For those who utilize TotalCommander anyway, they can use a Plugin to search
for text inside of file, here "FileContent 1.10" from Lefteous:

(I have modified the screenshot to show that search works in reversed order (system/zoom)  too)

HTH?

##### General Software Discussion / Re: help needed for batch change of jpg 'created time'
« on: May 19, 2017, 05:02 AM »
How do I navigate Power Shell?
-Curt

If this is still need, here is how:

- Open PowerShell window ( Run: powershell )
- You will get a PowerShell window, starting in your profile directory
C:\Users\Kurt\

- now tell the machine you want to change the folder:
use 'Set-Location', short 'SL', or the alias, know from DOS days: 'CD'
cd

- add a space after CD

- net start typing 'pic' and press TAB key to cycling  through all matching folders (if any), and you will get:
cd .\Pictures

- press Enter
C:\Users\Kurt\Pictures

- - -

Extra tip:
- use TAB key everywhere and every time in PoSh to aid you navigating
- press Ctrl+C to cancel current typed command and get a new line
- Type 'cd ..' + ENTER to go to parent directory
- Type 'cd \' + ENTER to go to the root of a drive
- Type 'H:' + ENTER to switch to drive with letter H
- Type 'cd ~' + ENTER to switch to your home directory C:\Users\Kurt\
- Type 'cd ~\' + TAB to cycling  through all folders

Here is a better explanation

For Each JPG in folder --- Set "Created"-time from "Last write"-time

You can use PowerShell for that.

(First have a backup)

I will do it step by step for the learning effect:

Step1
Launch PoSh and change to your folder.

Step2
List the file(s) with Get-ChildItem and utilize Get-Member to see the object properties
(I have added select -First 1| because it is enough to see that info once only)

Get-ChildItem *.jpg | select -First 1 | Get-Member
(Short: ls *.jpg|gm)

You will see among others
CreationTime              Property       datetime CreationTime {get;set;}
LastAccessTime            Property       datetime LastAccessTime {get;set;}
LastWriteTime             Property       datetime LastWriteTime {get;set;}

Step3
Now lets see what that properties will get us
Get-ChildItem *.jpg | ForEach-Object{$_.CreationTime ;$_.LastWriteTime}
Donnerstag, 20. April 2017 16:25:27
Mittwoch, 19. Oktober 2005 01:18:56

Step4
Set Creation time from LastWriteTime
Get-ChildItem *.jpg | ForEach-Object{$_.CreationTime =$_.LastWriteTime}

Step5
Test, like in Step3
Get-ChildItem *.jpg | ForEach-Object{$_.CreationTime ;$_.LastWriteTime}
Mittwoch, 19. Oktober 2005 01:18:56
Mittwoch, 19. Oktober 2005 01:18:56

For you it's enough to perform Step4.
In short syntax:
dir *.jpg | %{$_.CreationTime =$_.LastWriteTime}

Or work on the first few only for testing purpose:
dir *.jpg |select -First 3| %{$_.CreationTime =$_.LastWriteTime}

Use '-Recurse' to work in sub folders too:
dir *.jpg -Recurse | %{$_.CreationTime =$_.LastWriteTime}

HTH?

GCI is short for 'Get-ChildItem'
DIR and LS are aliases for 'Get-ChildItem'

##### Mouser's Zone / Re: issue with automatic screenshotter
« on: May 13, 2017, 02:45 AM »
- menu from tray icon and from application are not captured at all (not true, some work),
I only see cursor over pushed button, but menu is not on screenshot.

Is it possible the screenshot is happening right BEFORE the menu is displayed?
That is, if you have it take a screenshot every 1 second, do you then get the capture of the menu?
-mouser

After I saw the 'flaws', I tested by hovering for a longer time over the menu(s) while had AS set to capture every 3 seconds.
(duh, I wanted to post my AS settings, but then.... arrrg)
So sooner or later one shot should have taken the -what are the pop-ups called?... fly-out menu?

I will sure have a need to capture more the next week and will report back.

Ath    ,

AS was running at that other PC,... both I controlled remotely.
After finishing my work, I copied the captured screenshots to my PC
and on importing them into WordTM I saw the flaws I mentioned above.

Thanks for support

That's a good point, Ath, and I had should mentioned that I had tested the last time in a virtual machine of VirtualBox.
But I doesn't encounter that issue with other screenshot tools before, which I test most in a VM first (like other tools too)
On the other hand, I posted about that issue on Wednesday first, and there I worked on a real W732 Laptop (remote, ok, but that doesn't matter I think)

Thanks.

AutomaticScreenshotter.exe   6.536.464   09.05.2017 21:57

- cut windows is fixed
- DPI-settings are there , set to 96 and works

but

- menu from tray icon and from application are not captured at all (not true, some work),
I only see cursor over pushed button, but menu is not on screenshot.

If I find a problematic application where screenshot of the menu not work and which is easy to download for your tests, I will report back.
(At the moment I only have commercial SW with big download size, or portable but old, now no freeware anymore soft)
(Update: now with another test, I see the same as yesterday on screenshot of menu of tray icon >> a region more on the top left of my screen is captured instead)

Till then, thanks for AS.

Looks fine now on W7/64 and W8.1/64

No cut pictures anymore now (only if a wider dialog is in front of a smaller one,
the size of the smaller is taken instead of the wider one.
I think because the smaller has still the focus. No big deal for me.)

- - -
EDIT:

I want to capture the context menu of an icon in TRAY.
First I can't, because option "Don't capture .... less...pixel: 80" was set.
Instead the whole desktop was captured, incl. open Tray fly-out window.

Next I disable that option, now a small part of the top left area of my desktop is captured,

« on: May 09, 2017, 04:56 AM »
Hi Jesse, FYI, I don't want to complain, thanks for that app anyway

Why I get cut pictures of some dialogs?

Win8.1/64-bit

(o) Active Window or desktop, if none (default)

This is a shot of Device Manager > USB > context menu > Properties

This is a full screen app > File open dialog

The big sized WinExplorer windows are captured with desktop background, fine, but only the top left half, not the WinEx window in whole.

It's always the same problem: only top left part is captured.

---

Other dialog are captured fine.

---

Splash pictures (on software start) are captured with some part of the background.

But that is probably intended?
OK, no big problem.

- - -

Another problem:

the pictures are stored with 300dpi.

If I insert them in WordTM, they are very small.

I have to modify the screenshots beforehand
and batch set them all to 96dpi, then they are fine for my use with WordTM.

Maybe you can add an option to set the wanted DPI on save time?

Thanks

FWIW, I read the same out of that sentence (although it stands clearly what that option does)
I just had another expectation and that was what I read... the same as you.

« on: May 04, 2017, 02:20 PM »
Now I had no time to visit this forum for some days and so I missed this thread...

But interesting, I had just this days the same issue with  MiniCap (based on ScreenshotCaptor).
I have a script to capture every 3 seconds and on mouse click.
Works fine after I read the help how to make individual file names
for about 20 minutes and ~600 files, then I can't let work MiniCap again.
(VirtualPC W7/64, only 2GB RAM)

I wanted to look on GDI issue too, but then there were other things to do.
I switched to Automatic Screenshotter and that works fine with "every 3 sec" rule, but I miss "capture on mouse click".
So it's fine you work on that already

##### N.A.N.Y. 2017 / Re: NANY 2017: CSearcher - A simple and fast free non-indexing search program.
« on: March 09, 2017, 06:07 AM »
Congratulations and Kudos, Hugo.

Well made tool. I think I will use this a little bit longer.

Some IDEAs I have found while using it, if I may:

Suggestion #1

Options > Tools
Tool to open file: path\to\notepad2.exe "%1"
Tool to open folder: path\to\filemanager.exe "%1" /A /B /c

Open file with own tool
Open folder with own tool

Suggestion #2
Add option to use ESC key to exit the application

Suggestion #3
If easy possible, add option to limited search deep (fine for slow networkdrive)
For example, I know that my own files are in the three top level folders only,
but the folder may contain installation sources also with several sub folders, which are needles to include into the search.

Suggestion #4
If you have some free time, add keyboard shortcuts
Alt+N = Name pattern box
Alt+F = folders
Alt+P = Pattern restrictions
Alt+D = Date restrictions
Alt+S = Size restrictions
Alt+C = Content restrictions
Alt+R = Filter results

Alt+N and Alt+P shortcuts from menu could be changed to use CTRL+Alt+ instead?
Also I would miss a "Copy Path ONLY from result" if I didn't would know workarounds.

Idea #5
Double click on editable box to enable them and check the checkmark box,
instead of checking the checkmark box first.

Idea #6
Of course, history for editable boxes (last 25 recently inserted contents)

#7
Content restrictions:
- RegEx support (also fine for -OR-: abc|def|xyz)
- "Whole word" check box

#8
Date restrictions
Drop-Down-Menu: Last [ 3 |v] days

#9
Perhaps a "collect results" feature? Like "[X] Do not clear result on new search"?
Perhaps useful for finding duplicate files

Sort lines of a txt file by lenght of the string

With pure JavaScript and a TextEditor supporting WSH scripting.

NewText = (OldText().split("\n")).sort(function(a,b){return b.length-a.length}).join('\n');

module_name = "StefanSort";
module_ver = "0.001a";
function Init(){
}
function StefanSortRandom() {
var objEditor = newEditor();
objEditor.assignActiveEditor();
objEditor.Text((objEditor.Text().split("\n")).sort(function(){return .5 - Math.random()}).join("\n").slice(0, -1));
}
function StefanSortByLineLengthDown() {
var objEditor = newEditor();
objEditor.assignActiveEditor();
objEditor.Text((objEditor.Text().split("\n")).sort(function(a,b){return b.length-a.length}).join('\n').slice(0, -1));

var objEditor = newEditor();
objEditor.assignActiveEditor();
objEditor.Text((objEditor.Text().split("\n")).sort(function(b,a){return b.length-a.length}).join('\n').slice(0, -1));

EmEditor:
document.selection.text = ((document.selection.text.split("\n")).sort(function(a,b){return b.length-a.length})).join('\n');

##### Living Room / Re: Text editor - macro - multiple regex find and replaces
« on: January 26, 2017, 01:57 AM »
I checked out PSPad and did the following simple things.
existing text
start recording macro
do a find and replace
stop macro
save macro
(same to .pme ?)
then back to macro - edit macro - empty
-dcwul62

Just to be clear, PSPad was not meant as example of an good macro recorder
in fact, PSPad macro didn't record such Find&Replace dialogs.

Store that code as MultiReplace.vbs in "...\PSPad\Script\VBscript\" folder.

PSPad is free an have Scripting support, but even better for my use and with
an far better macro recorder is EmEditor, which costs $40 (or$150 with more than 1 year update service)

.

A freeware Text Editor is PSPad, which can be scripted with VisualBasicScript (VBS)

Store that code as MultiReplace.vbs in "...\PSPad\Script\VBscript\" folder.

Quick&Dirty Example:
'*******************************************************************************
' Description :
' Created :
' Created by :
' Note   :
' You may distribute this script freely, but please keep this header intact.
'*******************************************************************************
'OPTION EXPLICIT
'ON ERROR RESUME NEXT

Sub Init
End Sub
'*******************************************************************************
Sub Main()
Set editor = newEditor()
editor.assignActiveEditor()
strInputSel = editor.selText()

strOut = strInputSel
'//==================================================== === START User Settings ===
'//   strOut = runRegExpReplace(strOut, "yourSearchPattern" , "yourReplacement")
strOut = runRegExpReplace(strOut, "X", "Y")
strOut = runRegExpReplace(strOut, "-", "....")
strOut = runRegExpReplace(strOut, "this", "that")
strOut = runRegExpReplace(strOut, " the the ", " the ")
'.... and so on
'//==================================================== === END of User Settings ===

'//write back:
editor.selText strOut
Set editor = Nothing
End Sub

Function runRegExpReplace(haystack, Pattern, newtext)
Set regEx = New RegExp
If Pattern = "" Then
runRegExpReplace = haystack
Exit Function
End If
regEx.Pattern        = Pattern
regEx.IgnoreCase = TRUE
regEx.Global          = TRUE
regEx.Multiline      = TRUE
runRegExpReplace = regEx.Replace(haystack, newtext)
End Function

« on: January 24, 2017, 02:43 AM »

You could use EmEditor Text Editor
- you can record a search&replace in a macro, edit that macro by copying the command line, and run this.
https://www.emeditor...y/scriptable-macros/
- you can also use the search&replace dialog box and enable Batch-Replace:
https://www.emeditor...tures/batch-replace/

You could use PowerShell (new WindowsTM batch tool)
Command line usage:
(Get-Content c:\temp\test.txt).replace('[MYID]', 'MyValue') | Set-Content c:\temp\test.txt
http://stackoverflow...file-with-powershell
Script usage:
$current=(Get-Content c:\temp\test.txt)$OUT=$current.replace('[MYID]', 'MyValue')$OUT=$OUT.replace('XXX', 'ABC')$OUT | Set-Content c:\temp\test.txt

You could use AutoHotkey:
StringReplace, varOUT, varOrigin, xxx, ABC, All
StringReplace, varOUT, varOUT, YYY, DEF, All
FileDelete, test.csv
FileAppend, %varOUT%, test.csv
https://autohotkey.c...eplace-in-text-file/

You could use MS-Word with VBA
- start record macro
- call search&replace , do your first replacement
- stop recording
- click Macros > Modify
- copy the replacement block of code and modify to your second replacement need
- save and execute
There are more elegent ways with ARRAYs and FOR EACH in Array DO... but for the start that should work for you too.

MS-Word supports Wildcards: http://word.mvps.org...l/UsingWildcards.htm

Within a macro, you can utilize VBS/VBA RegEx (Set regExp = CreateObject("vbscript.regexp"))
http://superuser.com...replace-in-word-2010
http://stackoverflow...alternation-operator

Best way is to copy a own (found) function into the macro code and call that function for the replacement work:
http://bytecomb.com/...-expressions-in-vba/
>>> RxReplace VBA Function
Function RxReplace( SourceString, Pattern , ReplacePattern , IgnoreCase , MultiLine , MatchGlobal )

Just some ideas as starting point....

##### Coding Snacks / Re: Drop file to rename it according to list of names
« on: January 19, 2017, 05:34 AM »
Maybe this helps:

I have a folder with files and a spreadsheet with two columns with a list of names.
Current names on the left column (A), the new names on the right column (B).
Old name.txt   |   New wanted.txt
Alter Name.TXT   |   Neuer Name.TXT
Current name.txt   |   Target Name.txt

Use third column (C) and enter a formula in C1:

=" Ren " & """" & A1 & """  " & """" & B1 &""""

After pressing ENTER key you will get:

Old name.txt   |   New wanted.txt    |   Ren "Old name.txt"  "New wanted.txt"
Alter Name.TXT   |   Neuer Name.TXT
Current name.txt   |   Target Name.txt

Now select C1 and double click at the black square at the bottom right of that cell.
The formula is copied down.

Awaited Result:

Old name.txt   |   New wanted.txt    |   Ren "Old name.txt"  "New wanted.txt"
Alter Name.TXT   |   Neuer Name.TXT    |   Ren "Alter Name.TXT"  "Neuer Name.TXT"
Current name.txt   |   Target Name.txt    |   Ren "Current name.txt"  "Target Name.txt"

At last, select whole C-column, paste to a New Textfile.txt.
Open that file (add '@ECHO OFF' as new first line) and see if all went fine.
Change extension to .CMD and run on a copy of your real files (or have a backup).

DOS command REN will try to find file with name on the left, and if found, rename with name on the right.

---------------------------------------RenameBatch.CMD
@ECHO OFF

Ren "Old name.txt"  "New wanted.txt"
Ren "Alter Name.TXT"  "Neuer Name.TXT"
Ren "Current name.txt"  "Target Name.txt"

PAUSE
