Are there any plans to integrate some windows 7 specific features into this program? (In particular I'm talking about the pause/play buttons that show in the Aero preview and the progress bar embedded on the superbar icon.)

That would make this program (even more) super!

Running this seems to break windows-key functionality on Windows 7 (can someone verify?)

Win + anything in particular? It may be app-specific of course. I did do some general fixing a while back but if you can find something reproducible I'll look into it right away  Thmbsup

I did some testing and here are the results:

If main program window is open and active, then everything works.
If the window is open but inactive, then winkey to trigger the start menu does not work. Win+[anything else] still works though.
If the window is minimized to tray, then weird stuff happens. Sometimes the win key would stop working all together, sometimes it would get stuck in the down position.


Hope this helps!

It does that have built in, but the software that it requires brings on too much baggage Sad
5  DonationCoder.com Software / Unfinished Requests / UNFINISHED: Change screen brightness w/ hotkey on: August 23, 2010, 09:19:04 PM
Hi,

is it possible to change a laptop's LCD brightness using F2 and F3?

I tried using autohotkey (see http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/topic42443.html), but the code given is complex.

Can someone give some clarification?

Thanks.

P.S. Checked out DimScreen, but that doesn't actually change screen brightness, so battery life doesn't change.

7  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / FARR crashes after installing AltTab plugin on: May 10, 2010, 04:29:33 PM
Hi,

After I installed the AltTab plugin, FARR crashes. When re-run it, it crashed again. Thankfully, after I re-ran it again, it detected that the plugin was causing problems and disabled it.

EDIT:
OS is win7 x64.


Anyone else having this problem?

Thanks.

Using Windows 7, and experiencing the same issue. I heard somewhere that the PrintWindow function can't capture Aero, so that may be the problem?

Scrolling capture doesn't seem to work under google chrome.

I checked, and I have that disabled already.


But as long as it's only me, and donationcoder isn't hacked or anything, I can deal w/ the problem.

Google chrome complains that donationcoder does not have a valid https certificate, see attachment. Is it only me?

Ctrl+R brings up the context menu of any item, you can then use arrows to go to the menu item of your choice and hit enter smiley

Works beautifully. Thanks for the tip!
14  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: hamNotes (A FARR2 Plugin by hamradio) on: November 30, 2009, 06:12:23 PM
when listing notes you can right click on one and choose modify.

I know it's available from the context menu, but having to using a mouse seems to defeat the purpose of FARR.  Wink  Was hoping I could type something to accomplish the same thing.

Thanks

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too.

Are there any keyboard shortcuts for the buttons pictured below?


Thanks.

In start menu search, there is a handy ctrl+shift+enter to launch the selected program with admin. rights. Is there such a shortcut in FARR?


Thanks.

You might want to try the script I wrote here.
18  DonationCoder.com Software / DesktopCoral / AHK Script to dock windows on: September 07, 2009, 01:09:45 PM
I wrote a small AHK script that moves the currently active window to the space reserved by DesktopCoral. Thanks to mouser for his help in this script.

You can find it here: http://www.autohotkey.net/~kli6891/onTop/onTop.ahk

The last version of Desktop Coral is required, 1.07.01 - September 6, 2009.

After running the script, just hit Ctrl+Shift+E to move the active window. The hotkey is configurable, just modify the hotkey value in onTop.ini
See this topic for more info.

Bugs reports, suggestions are welcome.


EDIT: Make sure to Desktop Coral first.
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Maximize Windows "partially" [finished] on: September 07, 2009, 12:27:13 AM
OK, I finished my program. It works in conjunction with Desktop Coral (by mouser), so that when the user presses a hotkey (configurable), it moves the active window to the dock of Desktop Coral.

You need the latest version of Desktop Coral (1.07.01 - September 6, 2009) for this to work. You can download it here.


Once you downloaded and docked Desktop Coral, you can use my script, and press ctrl+shift+e to make the current window move (and resized) to the docked place.

In the .ini file, you can change the hotkey, as well as the path of your DesktopCoral.ini file.

Thanks to mouser and everyone who helped in this thread.
Bug reports and suggestions are welcome!


Download the script here.

Hmm, I think what I'm going to try to make is to make an "add-on" script for Desktop Coral. It should read the .ini values, and when the user presses a hot key, it will move the the active window (and resizing it) to fit the area that's covered. This is less work for me, and it makes good use of an already existing program.


Thoughts?
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Maximize Windows "partially" on: August 23, 2009, 05:29:48 PM
Ok then. A hotkey sounds like a good idea, and it's a lot less work  Grin!
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Maximize Windows "partially" on: August 22, 2009, 11:23:41 AM
^^ Both if possible. (Of course, Windows 7 introduces 2 more ways of maximizing a window, either by dragging it to the top of the screen, or Win+Up combination).

23  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Maximize Windows "partially" on: August 22, 2009, 09:21:44 AM
Ok, the weekend has arrived, and I tried tackling this program.
And immediately I need some help  Cry.


How do I make AHK detect that a user has initiated a maximize action. I read the documentation on OnMessage(), but it seems that it can only receive messages send to the AHK script, not to other windows. Perhaps someone w/ experience can help me with this?


My other idea is to do a continuous loop with WinGet to see if the window is maximized. And if it goes from normal to maximized, then the script will trigger.


Does anyone have a better idea?


Thanks.
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Maximize Windows "partially" on: August 20, 2009, 05:18:18 PM
Thanks for the suggestions again. I'll tried to do this with AHK, since it sounds like a fun and useful (to me at least) project to tackle.

I'll report here if/when I'm finished.
Thanks again.
25  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Maximize Windows "partially" on: August 19, 2009, 07:17:37 PM
Thanks for the responses.

I tried desktop coral, and it's close to what I want. However, it seems that I can't put windows in the reserved area, which is what I'm after.

More help?  cheesy
