Perhaps a new topic is in order?

FWIW, the following is something that tries to work with a wider selection of controls:

i found a program (mIRC) where this scripts doesn't work.. Sad
Well it is not surprising to me smiley  The current code is deliberately made to be a bit focused on where it's supposed to work.

FWIW, the code from which this descends only checked controls with class "Edit".  FARR doesn't use that for its main edit box IIUC, so I changed what it checks for.  I also modified it to check the window class as the original request was for FARR and I didn't want this to affect too many other things.

I agree that a more general tool would be interesting, but haven't given it much consideration yet.

is there a way to display only part of page i mean something like this

i add sutom alias i.e. http://www.ling.pl/indexalt.php?word=$$1
and i know that important part of html that i want to see in application window is between <div id='main'></div>
is there a way to put only this part in my Find and Run Robot window?

i understand tha i can sometimes need to load the whole page to display site correctly
but is there a way to hide everything besides interesting part "<div id='main'></div>"

Depending on what it is you want to do, I think you may be disappointed in Webgrab.  The plugin lets you extract information from HTML and reformat, but it's not going to get you images, style sheets, etc.

But, FWIW, below is the latest:

  http://ewemoa.dcmembers.com/tmp/Webgrab.zip

SHA1: 6e83bda1a192dfee82b1a1e94458de89ab071c80

Usage has changed since earlier.  A snippet from the included README.txt:

Quote
  In the 'Result(s) - programs, ...' text area of the Edit Alias Dialog, one might specify:

    pcommand webgrab http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=$$u1 `<table id='entries'>([\s\S]*)<div id='paginator'>` `%1` html

  The URL (what to get) is:

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=$$u1

the regular expression (what to pay attention to) is:

    <table id='entries'>([\s\S]*)<div id='paginator'>

and the template string (how to present) is:

    %1

  N.B. The latter two are surrounded by backticks ` to help the plugin understand what information it is being given.

  This example alias ends with:

    html

which tells Webgrab to display the results as HTML.

  This example makes use of user input, so it is important to specify an appropriate value for "Regular Expression Pattern".  For example, if "Alias Trigger Text" has the value:

    testwg

  One might specify a value of:

    ^testwg (.*)

  for "Regular Expression Pattern".

  Reminder: a backtick character ` is used for quoting the regular expression and the formatting template.

The README.txt contains more detail and examples.

Please note that the backtick character ` (the backwards single quote) is used for surrounding the regular expression and the template string.

mouser found plenty of things to improve in the latest available version so I'm working on addressing some of those things.

Hope to have some news on this before long.
1505  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: [Feature request/Plugin idea] add search in dictionary.com on: May 12, 2010, 08:44:06 PM
The version of Webgrab mentioned in the aforementioned topic is dated.  Below is a link to one that seems to work for some cases:

  http://ewemoa.dcmembers.com/tmp/Webgrab.zip

Quote
Usage:

  webgrab <url> {<regular-expression>} "<template-string>"

Example:
         
  webgrab http://www.weather.com/weather/local/08080 {<div class="ccTemp">(\d+)} "Temperature in your town is %1 degrees"

If there is interest, perhaps this version can be modified appropriately or a separate implementation can be attempted.

As I understand it, the way this works has to do with the class of the control (and now also that of the window the control lives in).  If those match, it seems like it may work.  For reference:

1510  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Req: Ctrl+backspace to delete from cursor position on: May 11, 2010, 07:39:26 AM
I would like this too.  I think something similar was mentioned at:

  http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=18120.0

Here's a little hack to demo the desired behavior:

  http://ewemoa.dcmembers.c.../tmp/FARRCtrlBSDelFix.exe

SHA1: 8cbc04eaf82a8b403657e94366afe887d4a08a70

Control+Delete behavior is also changed.  It's a quick hack so be warned smiley

(It's done using AutoHotkey_L in case you feel like decompiling, messing around and recompiling.)

Have you tried gathering data via Wireshark?
1512  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: all links for software are broken on: May 08, 2010, 05:40:17 AM
Hmm, no apparent difference in results here.  Still get a similar-looking dialog: "EXE corrupted" when I try to run the resulting exe.  FWIW, the original exe does run fine.
1513  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: all links for software are broken on: May 08, 2010, 05:32:37 AM
The decompression seemed to worked for me too, but when trying to run the resulting .exe,  there was a dialog box that said something about the exe being corrupted.  I only used the -d option which overwrites the original file.  May be I'll try what you suggested.  Thanks.
1514  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: all links for software are broken on: May 08, 2010, 04:55:39 AM
maybe the current exe files can decompressed without recompiling? upx allows decompression unless it's password-protected.
BTW, I tried this today on 100 or so of Skrommel's tools and didn't have luck with any of them.  Has any one else tried?  If any of you are/were successful, would you mind sharing the command line options you used?
1515  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: [Feature request/Plugin idea] Access last window menus on: May 07, 2010, 04:09:08 PM
May be you know the following already, but FWIW:

IIRC, QS used MacOS X's Accessibility API for this (at least at one point).  For Windows, there's:

  http://msdn.microsoft.com...-us/windows/bb735024.aspx

with interesting-sounding tibdits like "UI Automation".  Don't know if any of that would be useful in the current context though.

AHK has WinMenuSelectItem and here's some extract from its docs:

Quote
...However, some windows might need to be in a non-minimized state.

This command will not work with applications that use non-standard menu bars. Examples include Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, which use disguised toolbars for their menu bars. In these cases, consider using ControlSend or PostMessage , which should be able to interact with some of these non-standard menu bars.

May be some of those things in combination with %LASTHWND% would let a plugin or alias do something relevant.

Do you know if it works on 64 bit versions of Windows?  It doesn't mention 64 bit on the product page.
I didn't manage to determine this via some searching.

As far as making info available to FolderCache is concerned, some kind of merging is what I currently have in mind.  No point in duplicating paths.  Perhaps there is some date / time info (may be the last accessed or modification info for FolderCache.txt?) that can be leveraged for this purpose.

Quote
Also you need to make sure FolderCache is not running while you do this since it rewrites the FolderCache.txt on closing.
The situations under which it occurred to me to use this is when FolderCache has not been running, so ordinarily it doesn't seem like it'd be a problem, but thanks for the warning.  It'd be good to check for a running FolderCache.  For reference, the cases I have considered so far are:

  • When you first install FolderCache
  • While performing maintenance / debugging of some sort, it's not unusual for me to shut down a lot of utilities -- sometimes I stop certain things and not others and don't always remember to restart everything (though I wrote a little utility that's been helping me to "fill in the missing processes").
  • Accidental process killing without noticing

I am happy to report that I have not yet witnessed FolderCache crashing on its own smiley

Quote
A few lines of batch should do it depending on what you have to do to format the output of the ShellBagsView. 
He he.  I will probably avoid batch as I still find it hard to use -- though it's nice that I don't typically need to install anything extra.  (I find coming back to batch good from time to time -- it helps in my appreciation of other programming languages.)

Quote
By having your lines first in the FolderCache.txt file they won't be discarded because the stack has reached its limit.  They will be the last entries pushed on.
Thanks for this explanation.

Quote
edit: looking at the output I don't see what the information is.  It shows the root of the folder opened for all I can see.  A bunch of C:  X: F: with no particular folder info.. unless something escapes me.
Interesting -- I typically get full path info, though not always.  My current leaning is just to work with full path information, at least to start with.  Hmm, a random thought -- if FolderCache could be handed folder info from other programs (e.g. via command line invocation) whether it's running or not, may be that'd open up some interesting possibilities...

Quote
edit2: Sifting through registry mish mash, esp. 32 vs 64 bit is not my thing.  That's why I do the active window in the first place.  If you can some up with something yourself I'd be curious to see it though. smiley
If ShellBagsView isn't managing to extract anything useful, my first inclination would be after doing some further testing and searching to see if others had similar experiences, to try to bug Nir Sofer about it -- I think sifting through registry stuff is one of his things smiley
1521  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: reopen recently opened explorer windows, history, MRU on: May 05, 2010, 08:27:31 AM
btw you may want to try ReOpen instead.  I find sometimes I type a substring in the input filter and I don't get a result in the folder list, but sometimes a recent program that lives in that folder is still in the program list.  Then I can highlight it, press Alt Left Click to paste it into the input line.  Once there I can backspace out the program part to get the folder.

Thanks for the suggestion.  For the particular case of folders that contain applications, I have an existing method of coping smiley

Quote
I also cheat by using Everything Search.  If I type in a folder name and come up dry, then I hit ^c to kick off the hotkey search, which I have set to open Everything Search... then the contents of the input filter edit line are sent as a macro.

Interesting tip -- I have Everything Search installed but I haven't used it much outside of testing and troubleshooting for the FARR TinyEv plugin.  May be I should investigate it some more.

Returning for a moment to FolderCache I was looking at FolderCache.txt and thinking how similar it is to the output you can get from ShellBagsView from NirSoft.

After choosing to show only the Path and Last Modified Time columns in ShellBagsView (this is a one-time thing), using the following command line invocation, you can get a list of path-date pairs (separated by tabs) sorted with most recent first:

[copy or print]
shellbagsview.exe /sort "~Last Modified Time" /stab result.txt

By sending this through some appropriate light processing (drop the tab and the second column), perhaps one can end up with something that FolderCache can use. 

May be for the case where for whatever reason FolderCache doesn't happen to be running this could be useful.  One would feed FolderCache ShellBagsView-originating-but-appropriately-transformed-output (possibly doing some kind of analysis of / merging with FolderCache.txt) and then perhaps it'd be as if FolderCache had been running all along.

What do you think?
1522  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: How to use pskill with farr on: May 04, 2010, 07:45:55 PM
BTW, as soon as I type pskill, I see a value filled in for %cliptext%:

[attachthumb=1]

(I noticed that the value I saw in the results was not necessarily that which was in my clipboard -- perhaps there's some caching somewhere?.)

1524  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: How to use pskill with farr on: May 04, 2010, 05:59:07 PM
putnum, after you made changes to your alias, did you close the options dialog and do "goareload"?  IIUC, this sort of thing will help to ensure the changes you made are understood by FARR (if I've got the specifics wrong, may be someone can point that out).

FWIW, below is roughly what my FARR main window looks like using the alias in question.

[attachthumb=1]
1525  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: How to use pskill with farr on: May 04, 2010, 05:22:22 PM
when i go and type the process name the search string goes away

I don't quite follow this.  Would you mind elaborating on this in more detail?  Perhaps some screenshots or video?

Quote from: putnum
cannot start pskill

I failed to mention in my post that I used the full path to pskill.exe in:

Quote
Result(s): pskill \\%cliptext% $$1

Sorry about that.  Perhaps that has something to do with it?
