1  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor Early Beta Release: v4.6.4 Beta - Sep 11, 2013 on: August 31, 2013, 01:54:37 AM
It seems this update fixes the problem with regional settings: I've set my machine to half a dozen different country settings, and ScreenShotCaptor correctly starts up and preserves settings e.g. the position of the main window (haven't tested further, though).

While I'm at it, I want to report a slight but visually annoying case issue: in the "copy to clipboard" menu on the systray icon, the word "bitmap" starts with an uppercase "B" whereas all other choices are in lowercase. Similarly, in the "To clipboard" menu of the post-capture dialog, "Image" and "File" start with an uppercase letter, whereas "path "starts with a lowercase "p." This should be aligned IMVHO.

HTH
2  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Errors when .ini number format doesn't match current regional settings on: July 30, 2013, 02:22:44 PM
Hi,

I'm hereby resurrecting an old thread about the same topic.

The current implementation of ScreenShot Captor yields fatal errors such as:

---------------------------
Screenshot Captor
---------------------------
'1.0' is not a valid floating point value.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

if the .ini file contains numbers represented using a format different from the current "regional settings."

This problem will occur whenever the user changes the settings.

With my developer hat on, my feeling is that this should not be, because the user-configurable number formatting settings are related to UI, i.e. it specifies how the user wants to enter data, and how the system should present numbers displayed to the user--not how applications should internally represent information that the user will never see.

So I would suggest that the code be modified so that the encoding of numbers (or dates, or time, or whatever) in the configuration file(s) be independent from the input / display settings the user might want to choose.

What do you think?

I get either the directory creation error, or the A: drive. Don't think I ever got both in sequence.

That does happen right after the machine wakes up, not when I take a screenshot after the wake up.

Probably the OS takes some time to restore the network connection, and your code's faster at... doing something ;-)
4  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Strange problem with default screenshot directory on network drive on: April 28, 2013, 01:13:41 AM
On my home desktop the "My documents" directory is stored on a network drive on my NAS. This results in Screenshot Captor defaulting to:

S:\DOC\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor\Screenshots

to store the screenshots.

The behavior of the latest version with this setup is strange.

Often when the machine wakes up from hibernation I get one of the following errors:

- Error creating non-existing directory: 'S:\DOC\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor\Screenshots'.
- (even weirder) "The is no disk in drive. Insert a disk in drive A: / Cancel / Try Again / Continue"

For now, I'll work around this by forcing the screenshots to be stored on a local drive, but this is inconvenient as I cannot access them anymore from my laptop...

Any clue?

Glad to have been helpful in improving the product.

Now I have to fire a new thread to complain about the UI changes  Wink I now have to click twice to get the filename (or image) to the clipboard after a capture instead of only one previously...

works for me too, 64-bit Windows 7 Pro

Filename is

OS is 64-bit Windows 7 Pro

Don't have pre-Windows 7 OSes here to test with.

What are you running?
8  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: "Incorrect" filename for "Grab selected region" on: March 28, 2013, 09:59:20 AM
Here's a very simple scenario I just played with 4.00

- start Notepad
- maximize it
- start CMD
- move it about the middle of the screen, in front of the maximized Notepad
- hit Alt+PrtSc
- the resulting filename is

Screenshot of 'Untitled - Notepad' on 2013-03-28.png

whereas I would expect

Screenshot of C:WindowsSystem32Cmd.exe' on 2013-03-28.png

or something.


(I hate to say, I still have no clue as to how to attach a file to a forum post here...)

I just noticed (off-topic? do you want a new thread?) that "Grab Active Window" (with the 3.15.01 beta) yields an incorrect filename for console applications: the title of the window which is just "below" the upper-left corner of the console (current) window/application is used instead.
10  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: "Incorrect" filename for "Grab selected region" on: February 20, 2013, 04:18:25 AM
Seems to work way better.

What's the logic? If the region intersects with a window, you use that window's caption?

What if it intersects with more than one window?
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: "Incorrect" filename for "Grab selected region" on: February 20, 2013, 12:19:01 AM
Well... the EXE is 3.08.01....

Wrong URL, I would say  Wink
12  DonationCoder.com Software / DcUpdater / Re: DcUpdater reports incorrect version of installed app on: February 19, 2013, 09:52:28 AM
I swear I didn't intentionally install it to the incorrect directory.

Only 3.08.01 shows up in "Add or remove programs."

Did you at some point change the installation defaults?


I've uninstalled 3.08.01 using Control Panel and then renamed the
C:\Program Files (x86)\ScreenshotCaptor 
directory to
C:\Program Files (x86)\_ScreenshotCaptor


After that I reinstalled 3.08.01.

Situation's now back to normal.

Until....  Wink
13  DonationCoder.com Software / DcUpdater / Re: DcUpdater reports incorrect version of installed app on: February 19, 2013, 07:18:00 AM
I hate to say, but the problem's still there / back.

DcUpdater reports I have both ScreenshotCaptor 3.07.01 and 3.08.01 installed.

The one running is 3.07.01.

3.07.01 is reported as:

ScreenshotCaptor:
WebPage: http://www.donationcoder....reenshotcaptor/index.html
DcUpdate File: C:\Program Files (x86)\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.dcupdate
Remote Version File: http://www.donationcoder....aptor/pad/versioninfo.xml
Remote Update File: http://www.donationcoder....ScreenshotCaptorSetup.exe


3.08.01 is reported as:

ScreenshotCaptor:
WebPage: http://www.donationcoder....reenshotcaptor/index.html
DcUpdate File: C:\Program Files (x86)\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.dcupdate
Remote Version File: http://www.donationcoder....aptor/pad/versioninfo.xml
Remote Update File: http://www.donationcoder....ScreenshotCaptorSetup.exe

How do I get things back straight?

Isn't a bug still lurking somewhere?
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: "Incorrect" filename for "Grab selected region" on: February 19, 2013, 07:12:29 AM
you probably meant "if I can improve that"  Wink
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: "Incorrect" filename for "Grab selected region" on: February 19, 2013, 07:02:18 AM
Seems to be indeed something like that.

Except when the active window is a Windows Explorer window, in which case %windowtitlepure% expands to an empty string. That's also the case BTW if you capture the entire active Windows Explorer window (whereas I would expect this to be the window's caption i.e. the full path to the directory in my case).
 

16  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / "Incorrect" filename for "Grab selected region" on: February 19, 2013, 06:47:08 AM
Most often, when capturing a region I get a filename where %windowtitlepure% is replaced by an empty string.

Today I got something strange: this got expanded to the "massaged window title" of some window that was on my desktop, not even belonging to the app (IE) I captured a region from...

What's the official spec for how %windowtitlepure% is supposed to be expanded?
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Invalid Monitor Handle on: June 18, 2012, 01:32:21 PM
if you need a tester for preliminary builds...
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Invalid Monitor Handle on: June 18, 2012, 11:23:19 AM
I hate to say, but the problem is still there with 3.06.01...
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Invalid Monitor Handle on: May 23, 2012, 06:59:29 AM
I hate to say, but just got the problem with 3.04.01
20  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Invalid Monitor Handle on: April 11, 2012, 11:24:34 AM
I hate to say, but just got the problem again with 3.03.01...
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: "Help on fields" formatting issue on: April 10, 2012, 07:58:15 AM
BTW, where does one find the documentation for things like %windowtitlepure% or %windowtitle%?
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / "Help on fields" formatting issue on: April 10, 2012, 04:19:34 AM
Hi,

Just had to reconfigure the ScreenShot Captor preferences for the filenames, and hit the "Help on fields" button.

The formatting is rather poor:
- the field code and description are not separated from each other
- the descriptions should be "tab-aligned" (if you see what I mean)

More an annoyance than anything else, but improving this would "add polish" to the product  tongue
23  DonationCoder.com Software / DcUpdater / Re: DcUpdater reports incorrect version of installed app on: April 04, 2012, 07:48:19 AM
I sometimes do yell at my monitor, too  tongue
24  DonationCoder.com Software / DcUpdater / Re: DcUpdater reports incorrect version of installed app on: April 04, 2012, 03:20:47 AM
You're welcome.

And sorry if you get the feeling I got you frustrated. Bugs are a fact of life, we're just humans  tongue


Have a good sleep!
25  DonationCoder.com Software / DcUpdater / Re: DcUpdater reports incorrect version of installed app on: April 04, 2012, 03:06:30 AM
I've intentionally restored the virtualstore stuff (incl. the DcUpdater file for DcUpdater claiming it's 1.28.1), installed your new build, and it does ignore the virtualstore information.
