Hotrod Panel

I wrote the framework for WhenLast so I could reuse it for other projects.. Here's another small app that let's you create custom imaginary control panels for your android-based car screen:

Or make some imaginary nuclear reactor controls for the nearby plant and scare your friends into thinking you've hacked in smiley

Do we have an alternative design available again, this year? The kick-off post didn't get conclusive about that, I'm afraid

there was some preliminary mockups of a new design on this thread: http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=39202.0
but nothing final.

If someone can polish something off for use in the next week or so we can offer it as an alternative design.. otherwise we will go with the standard.
103  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / NANY 2015 - New Apps for the New Year Roundup on: January 02, 2015, 08:11:12 AM
Since 2007 we have held an annual event that we call NANY (New Apps for the New Year), where we ask the coders who hang out on DonationCoder to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world on January 1st of the new year (browse previous year entries here).

NANY is really the funnest thing we do on this site, and it's one of the few times we can all play together.  There are no winners or losers, it's simply a celebration of programming and creating new software and sharing it with the world.  You can target any operating system (desktop or mobile) or even make a web-based tool.  It can be a game, utility, large application, whatever. Best of all, everyone who participates gets a free commemorative coffee mug.

Congratulations to everyone who has participated in NANY this year. I hope everyone had fun!  On behalf of everyone on the site, I thank you for helping us kick off the new year. Please show some appreciation to those who participated by sending the participantsa small donation.


You can see the list of entries here: http://www.donationcoder.com/nany2015

I will fix, thanks for the report.

You can still hide it, you just do it differently now.  Go to the section editor, and you can hide any sections you want.

Note: You can toggle whether hidden items are shown from the preferences, so make sure that is also not set to show hidden items.
106  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screen Shot Capture quality on: December 31, 2014, 10:16:33 PM
You can choose the algorithm that screenshot captor uses to smooth images when it enlarges or shrinks, so that may yield a more pleasant result.  Just remember that no matter what it looks like while zoomed, the actual image in screenshot captor is always stored as an exact copy of what was captured -- we are only talking about the temporary display when zoomed.

Very impressive.
108  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screen Shot Capture quality on: December 31, 2014, 09:23:37 PM
Screenshot Captor always captures exactly what you see on screen. It sounds like its just zoomed out (or in).
On the top right you can set the zoom to 100% which will be exactly what you saw on screen.

New beta has been uploaded, would appreciate any reports; see download link in first post.

I think your old data should be read in, but im not 100% sure.
I have also removed the Delete All Data menu item; to clear all data you can go to your Android Settings, choose APPS, then choose WhenLast and then Delete All Data from there.

The new beta includes a Section Editor in the menu, where you can rename and reorder sections.

Happy new year!  Kiss Kiss
My resolution is to update more of my apps this year.
111  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release: WhenLast (Android app) on: December 30, 2014, 08:58:26 PM
Thanks for the comments folks.

Some quick replies:
  • Edit+Now buttons -- Rightnow i am using long click to do drag&drop; i could use a long click on Now button to edit, but that has a drawback of being non-generalizable when i add other kinds of "entries" that don't have "now" buttons.. so for right now i think the edit buttons are my best solution.  One possible thing i could do is make the user have to switch into a general "EDIT" mode before those buttons appear..
  • WhenLast in title area -- not sure what you mean -- isn't it in the title area?
  • Show "days since" mode -- yes i want to add that.
  • Reminders for tasks -- on my todo list.
  • Reordering categories -- will be in future version.
  • Bug with categories overlapping others -- let me know if that's not fixed in next version.

Just installed this in bedroom:

[attach=1]
http://www.amazon.com/Lut...att-Control/dp/B0017O71MI

"Lutron MIR-LFQTHW-WH Maestro IR 300-watt Single Pole Fan and Light Control Kit"

I had a ceiling fan in bedroom, with the following issues:
  • 1) The rotary push-turn dimmer was annoying to use and dimmed poorly.
  • 2) To change the speed of the fan you had to reach up high and pull a chain and it was hard to tell what speed it was running at, etc.
  • 3) You couldn't run fan with light off -- this was the most annoying thing, not to be able to run fan at night, without using chains to manually turn off lights while leaving wall switch on.
  • 4) If you want to read in bed you have to get up and walk to light switch when you are ready to turn off lights.

This devices provides:
  • A permanent wall outlet switch that looks elegant and a separate standalone remote.
  • Dimming is nice and smooth even for LED bulbs.
  • Independent control of fan and lights.
  • Can save preset favorite light and fan dim levels -- useful because i have some very bright LEDs that can be too much when on full.
  • Remote works from across the room/bed.

A pain to install but works well.  thumbs up

So I'm adding some default items to be present on initial run.. I'd love some suggestions for items to add.
For each item I just need a label and a section name.

Anyone?


ps. I've uploaded a new beta for anyone who wants to check it out (same url).

"When a homeless man in Brazil had an epileptic seizure, his dog Spike wasn't about to let him out of his sight. When the ambulance carrying the man headed to the emergency room, Spike chased after it. Eventually, the paramedics stopped to let Spike aboard. The loyal canine was also allowed to accompany his friend inside the emergency room as he recovered."

Wow that is odd and i must agree it's hard to read.
It looks like it's having a hard time adapting to system font settings -- i may try to make a quick new build and see if I can get it to behave better.
119  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Pledge: Installer Crapware Wrapper Detection DLL on: December 25, 2014, 12:22:27 PM
Quote
The problem is that it's going to require the app dev to create the Inno setup exe and then run a little app I provide that will mark the Inno setup exe. At runtime, after determining it is being used within an Inno setup, the plugin will locate its process's parent process's exe file and then determine if that's the original setup exe. If so, the crap wrapping testing will proceed from that process upward, back to the shell or original launching app.

that's an interesting idea, but should be avoided if at all possible because of the extra work involved on behalf of developer..
the thing is, if that would work then surely an easier approach would work too, no? I mean if you can locate the inno setup exe then you can inspect it and check out its exe name and company info, and that will surely be able to tell you whether its INNO or not, no?
120  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Folder Node does not like spaces in filenames on: December 25, 2014, 05:35:40 AM
Ok, I think i have fixed the problem; can you redownload the newly uploaded beta and give it a try?
121  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Folder Node does not like spaces in filenames on: December 25, 2014, 05:25:55 AM
i'll look into it again, now that i know the basic cause.
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: When you make your 100'th Post on: December 25, 2014, 05:25:16 AM
nope.

But there are no identifiable versions of not only the app I told it to install but also the crap-wrapped plugin dll and the setup script. Apparently those are still packed up and thus inaccessible by the plugin.
Given all that, I'm at a loss as to how to tag the exe running the plugin dll as 'okay', given that its parent is another Inno Setup process/executable, giving it all the markers of being crap wrapped.

i'm not sure exactly what you are saying -- i do know that with inno you can call your dll's early during installation -- if you need help with that step let me know.

perhaps you are saying something else -- that it's hard to figure out how to detect whether it's been launched by a crapware installer or not?

In all seriousness, every year that goes by with you guys and gals I realize more and more how wonderful and unlikely it all is.. It's a real pleasure to be in the company of all of you oddballs, freaks, soldiers, rebels, gentlemen, geniuses, and weirdos.

Special holiday greetings to Nudone, the father of Cody and the one who breathed life into him by drawing his picture.

anyone want to take a guess regarding what went wrong there?
