1501  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: July 04, 2011, 07:18:57 PM
WinButtons 3.3.2 and WinButtonEdit 0.9.3.0 (RC10) are now available from the original release post.
I see version 3.3.1.2 via the Version tab of WinButtons.exe Properties.  FWIW, I do see the included WinButtonEdit.ico.

Perhaps I got the wrong zip file?
1502  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: July 04, 2011, 05:00:03 PM
The combination of 'Show Window Border' and 'Show in Taskbar' is kinda 'the culprit', as it then shows a full-size Close button and a System menu.
Ah, I have tried various options and see.  Thanks for the explanation.

Turning off "Show in Taskbar" seems like a doable work-around in this case.

Thanks.
1503  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: User Variable value limit and Timer plugin problem on: July 04, 2011, 03:33:54 PM
Hmm...I wonder if this could be a contributing factor to the Timer plugin issue mentioned at:

  http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=23406.0

May be it is possible for the Timer plugin to check what the length of the representation of the data is before trying to store the data.
1504  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: July 04, 2011, 06:48:01 AM
Hmm...Perhaps there's something in the docs somewhere about this.  Any pointers?  I didn't turn up anything.

FWIW, when I uncheck "Vertical display", though there is less, there is still space to the right of the right-most icon.  May be this is also expected too...

Confused.
1505  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: July 04, 2011, 05:42:35 AM
BTW, I'm not quite sure what the conditions are that reproduce the issue, but it happens that under some circumstances, there is a fair bit of blank space to the right of the buttons:

[attachthumb=1]

May be it also depends on the icons referenced, but the button width and height may be related:

Please forgive the following quote...some posts in this topic remind me of:

Surely troublesome to receive such pricey equipment that doesn't work out-of-the-box, my condolences.
1510  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: July 03, 2011, 05:38:27 AM
During the selection of the Icon, there's a button to the right/top of the dialog to switch 'by Name'/'by Ordinal'. Does switching that help?
Yes!  This seems much better -- worked with Video2MP3.exe and WinButtons.exe.  Perhaps 'by Ordinal' isn't a bad default smiley

Quote from: Ath
Most of the time, index 0 displays the default icon of an exe, so if you omit the index WB applies 0 by default.
Thanks for the info.

Regarding Video2MP3, I get it via:

  http://skwire.dcmembers.com/wb/pages/software/video-2-mp3.php

FWIW, when I use NirSoft's IconExtract, I see 5 sizes for the icon extractable from Video2MP3.exe (16x16, 32x32, 48x48, 64x64, and 128x128).  In WBE / WB I end up seeing one of the smaller ones displayed as near as I can tell.

Showing an icon in WBE preview but not when running WB: Undetermined, the same code is 'included' for both exe's. Was the .wbuc/.ini file saved?
I didn't reproduce the issue with the latest version -- I admit it's possible there was some pilot error originally smiley

Would be nice if scaling worked: Scaling is not directly supported for button-images, investigation continues

any chance of supporting specification of icon from .exe?: Implemented in this release smiley
I have good news and bad news...

The good news is that it seemed to work for the likes of shell32.dll.  Hurray smiley

The bad news is that it didn't seem to work for Video2MP3.exe.  I was able to bring up the icon selection dialog for Video2MP3.exe, saw the desired icon, clicked on the select button, but didn't end up seeing the icon in the preview (just blank).  I clicked on the Apply button, saved, and restarted WBE, but no change.  Also tried WB but still saw a blank button.

Also tested by specifying via the file WinButtons.exe as a source of icons with similar unsuccessful results.

Sample .wbuc file content that appears to reproduce the issue is below.

Formatted for INI with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. [Settings]
  2. left=-1
  3. top=-1
  4. closebutton=1
  5. border=1
  6. taskbar=1
  7. vertical=1
  8. [Buttons]
  9. button1=New Button 1
  10. command1=-sub -?
  11. caption1=New Button 1
  12. image1=WinButtons.exe,-1

In the image1= line, tried changing -1 to 1 and subsequently did see an icon, btw.

Using WBE's .exe as a source of icons, icons show up in the preview when specifying -4, -3, 0, 1 but not for -1.  The icons that shows up for 0 and 1 look similar, FWIW.

Also found an intro to tmux in the Hitchhiker's Guide to OpenBSD -- specifically, in the Keyboard and Display Controls section lives:

  7.9 - What is tmux(1)?

It currently contains the following portions:

  • What is tmux?
  • How do I use tmux?
  • Configuring tmux
  • Advanced tmux usage

The following appears to be an OS X vim user's writeup of their tmux use:

  A Tmux Crash Course

Quote
I’ve been using Tmux for about six months now and it has become just as essential to my workflow as vim. Pane and window management, copy-mode for navigating output, and session management make it a no-brainer for those who live in the terminal (and especially vim).

It is split up into small sections:

  • Session Management
  • Windows
  • Panes
  • Helpful Tmux commands
  • Must-haves
  • Workflow

Using image specified in .wbuc file with .ico file in same directory as WB and WBE exes, the image of the .ico is displayed in preview of WBE, but not when using .wbuc file from WB.
Did you place the .ico file to the same directory as where the .wbuc file is?
Sorry if this was unclear.  WB, WBE, the .wbuc file, and the .ico file all live in the same directory.  Is that clearer?

Good luck with your investigation regarding the scaling and thanks for considering the exe / icon feature request smiley

XP SP3 WB 3.3.0.0 WBE 0.9.1.1

Using image specified in .wbuc file with .ico file in same directory as WB and WBE exes, the image of the .ico is displayed in preview of WBE, but not when using .wbuc file from WB.

Formatted for INI with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]

  9. button1=New Button 1
  10. command1=-sub -?
  11. caption1=New Button 1
  12. image1=Video2MP3.ico

On a related note, noticed that image of .ico doesn't appear to get scaled appropriately.  Specific case was .ico extracted from Video2MP3.exe -- 128x128 button size shows whole image, but smaller sizes tried (e.g. 48x48) show a portion of the image.  Would be nice if scaling worked smiley

Also, any chance of supporting specification of icon from .exe?
1517  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Some shortcut keys don't work anymore. on: June 26, 2011, 06:01:18 PM
Thanks for the reminder smiley

Own updated preference summary is now:

  • Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right - navigate to closest left / right "beginning of word" boundary
  • Ctrl+Shift+Left / Ctrl+Shift+Right - select from initial cursor position to closest left / right "beginning of word" AND navigate to the corresponding spot that Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right would
  • Ctrl+Backspace / Ctrl+Delete - removal of text between initial cursor position and closest left / right "beginning of word" boundary
  • Alt+Left / Alt+Right - previous / documented behavior

1519  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Some shortcut keys don't work anymore. on: June 26, 2011, 05:25:46 PM
Just to clarify, this is from the farr help file:

Quote
Ctrl+Left or Alt+Left, Ctrl+Backspace
 Delete last word (or subdir) in search edit box
 
Tab or Ctrl+Right or Alt+Right
 Autocomplete subdirectory in search edit box
Aha, in Advanced Use -> Hotkey and Shortcut Summary!  Thanks for pointing this out smiley

My updated preference / vote:

  • Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right should navigate to previous / next beginning of word boundaries
  • Alt+Left / Alt+Right -- previous behavior / documented behavior (I don't think there's some common behavior in other apps for these)
  • Cttrl+Backspace / Ctrl+Delete should delete to previous / next beginning of word boundaries
1520  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Some shortcut keys don't work anymore. on: June 26, 2011, 03:56:59 AM
- Ctrl+Left or Alt+Left, Ctrl+Right or Alt+Right, to either delete last word/subdir OR  autocomplete, doesn't work anymore
Hmmm...I thought Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right were for move cursor to beginning of previous word / next word.  That's what I'd expect, though I'm not sure what they used to do.

I'm not sure what Alt+Left and Alt+Right did previously.  FWIW, these don't seem to do anything for me in Notepad or Wordpad.  In Internet Explorer's location field, they seem to lead to the backward / forward page behavior.

Quote from: Armando
- Also, Ctrl+Shift+Left Ctrl+Shift+Right, for word selection don't work either.
Confirmed here that they don't work for selection -- just lead to motion.  My expectation for them would be to select what would be deleted by Ctrl+Backspace / Ctrl+Delete respectively.

1521  Other Software / Developer's Corner / cygwin command line arguments and apt-cyg on: June 24, 2011, 11:18:44 PM
Trying to automate cygwin + related package installation and noticed that recent versions of cygwin's setup.exe appear to support command line arguments:

Quote
Command Line Options:
 -A --disable-buggy-antivirus           Disable known or suspected buggy antivirus software packages during execution.
 -C --categories                        Specify entire categories to install
 -D --download                          Download from internet
 -d --no-desktop                        Disable creation of desktop shortcut
 -h --help                              print help
 -K --pubkey                            URL of extra public key file (gpg format)
 -L --local-install                     Install from local directory
-l --local-package-dir                 Local package directory
-n --no-shortcuts                      Disable creation of desktop and start menu shortcuts
 -N --no-startmenu                      Disable creation of start menu shortcut
 -O --only-site                         Ignore all sites except for -s
-P --packages                          Specify packages to install
 -p --proxy                             HTTP/FTP proxy (host:port)
-q --quiet-mode                        Unattended setup mode
 -r --no-replaceonreboot                Disable replacing in-use files on next reboot.
-R --root                              Root installation directory
 -S --sexpr-pubkey                      Extra public key in s-expr format
-s --site                              Download site
 -U --keep-untrusted-keys               Use untrusted keys and retain all
 -u --untrusted-keys                    Use untrusted keys from last-extrakeys
 -X --no-verify                         Don't verify setup.ini signatures

from:

  http://cygwin.com/faq-nochunks.html#faq.setup.cli

Also came across apt-cyg:

Quote
apt-cyg is a command-line installer for Cygwin which cooperates with Cygwin Setup and uses the same repository. The syntax is similar to apt-get. Usage examples:

    "apt-cyg install <package names>" to install packages
    "apt-cyg remove <package names>" to remove packages
...

from:

  http://code.google.com/p/apt-cyg/

apt-cyg seems to need wget, bzip2, tar, and gawk to function and appears to be a bash script so installed cygwin first via cmd.exe with:

[copy or print]
setup.exe -q -n -R C:\apps\cygwin -l C:\apps\cygwin -s ftp://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/cygwin/ -P wget,bzip2,tar,gawk,subversion


Didn't succeed in finding a way to remove packages via setup.exe's command line arguments, but apt-cyg has a 'remove' option smiley

Tested with setup.exe 1.7.9-1 and apt-cyg 0.57 (obtained from svn).

Echoing the voices of praise here  Thmbsup

It has nearly always worked for me (sometimes after updating innounp.exe), but lately I noticed that for some portableapps installers it doesn't work (at least not with the default method).  Has any one had any luck on that front?

IIRC, the bottom-most item in FARR's options dialog has to do with the troubleshooting log and it may have a checkbox relating to enabling/disabling logging.

May be that will be of some use.
