FARR Plugins and Aliases / New C# FARR Plugin: FARRAltTab
« on: November 23, 2007, 02:28 PM »
I just finished FARRAltTab plugin. Basically it lets you switch among windows using FARR and by typing the name of the window you switch to:

Download link (please unpack it to your "FARR\Plugins\FARRAltTab\" directory):

This is a very first release that was built on a very first release of the C# SDK so bugs are expected. Please let me know of any issues.

Known issues
  • It seems that some windows are being ignored by the plugin.
  • you type : des and everything is ok "Desktop" climbs to the top of the list but now if you type x (or z or any other "wrong letter")
    Desktop still show in the list, but when you press enter, it does not work
  • The plugin performance aren't too shiny. I hope it will fixed later. It is mainly due to the way the icons are loaded.

Planned features
  • A config window to tell the plugin to ignore certain windows or to show some windows that don't appear on task bar.
  • Context menu that will enable you to close windows by overriding the shell context menu (not sure if possible)
  • option to ignore (not show in list) any windows that are not minimized.

Version History
  • 1.15 Now shows all the Windows, including those that were previously skipped (liked iTunes) also, shows all the open Windows and does not limit to 9 as before
  • 1.11 Fixed the bug that occured when a search was done for not existing string
  • 1.10 Huge performance boost on loading
  • 1.00 Initial release

Here is the link to the C# SDK along with the code of the plugin:

Just the way you do rplugins:

rplugins - Reload all plugins (prompting first after unload), which is useful for plugin developers to give them an opportunity to copy over a new version of their plugin dll.

When you write it, it reloads the plugins immediately without waiting for an additional enter to confirm your choice.

It would be nice if there was a modifier to an alias that would cause the line to execute immediately.
I guess it should be treated with care (especially with regex) but it is still a nice feature (especially in combination with hotkeys feature).

P.S I guess I could use autohotkey instead but still.

Oh! I thought you meant multiple instances of FARR :-\ Couldn't figure why would you want to do that  :-[

Why would you need a multirun? What's the potential uses?
