1  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - Spews on: Today at 09:41:30 AM
So it seems that now it keeps a history of wallpapers. Is that history's length limited, and if so, how (a certain amount of memory, a maximum number of images paths and names, some other method)?

I suppose a bit of explanation is in order:

1) When you click the "Start wallpaper switching" button, Spews creates a list of images based on what you can configured and checked in the "Image folders" section.  The list then has any dupes removed and is randomised.  This method removes any chance that a wallpaper will be seen twice during a list's run.
3) Spews then uses this list, starting at the top and moving in order but remember the list is randomised every time you start the switching so the order is not the filepath image order.
4) Selecting the previous wallpaper goes back one image, at a time, in the list.  However, selecting next wallpaper ALWAYS goes to the next random wallpaper in the list.

For example, let's assume you have your list of wallpapers that Spews has randomised and is now switching through.  Image #3 is displayed on your desktop.  Selecting previous wallpaper would display iamge #2.  Selecting previous wallpaper again would display iamge #1.  Selecting next wallpaper (or having the next image display on your configured time interval) would display image #4.  At this point, selecting previous wallpaper would display #3, #2, and so on.  Maybe slightly illogical, yes, but I would have had to create a second "next wallpaper" function which seems a bit inelegant to me.

So, to answer your question, Spews doesn't use any more memory for this functionality (because it's using the same list).  Clear as mud, eh?   cheesy

Seems to be working almost perfectly - the temp initially loads as Fahrenheit but the changes to Celsius after pressing refresh.

Please verify the bus is fixed in this version:

Hi, schiznik, and welcome to DonationCoder.    smiley

I've set the web page to show temps in Celsius, however the app seems to only show Fahrenheit - I'd like to change the reported temperatures to Celsius if possible rather than Fahrenheit, I couldn't see a way of doing so in the app.

Almost three years to the day from the last release.   cheesy

smiley Thanks a ton. I really appreciate it, the super-quick implementation and that you made both options available, the hotkey and the command line parameter.  Cool
This raises the Windows experience to a whole new level, everything is suddenly so much more fun, it even spices up tedious maintenance chores.

You're quite welcome.   smiley  I'm glad you find the application useful.   thumbs up

copy is broken here (with 'Action' selected). Doesnt work with Ctrl+C nor via context menu.
Didnt work in previous version either - I know it worked a short while back, but not sure which version (2 or 3 back?).

Odd, it seems to work here for me on v1.0.9.  Just to clarify, you're talking about manipulating entries in the Actions list, right?  Like this:

I hadn't even thought to look for something that wasn't a calendar, but I think that would probably work fine.
Thanks!

You're welcome and welcome to DonationCoder as well.  If PBoL is going to work for you, do you mind if I mark this thread as solved?
12  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Visual Progressive Countdown Calendar on: January 20, 2015, 05:50:22 PM
Is the calendar portion crucial?  If not, perhaps mouser's own Progress Bars of Life might suit you?

Many thanks.  thumbs up Great piece of software.
I use it in combination with all my writing pograms, and it spices up their canvas nicely.
The -nosetwall parameter and the transparency slider are outstanding. Great stuff.  Thmbsup

You're very welcome.  I always find it interesting to learn how folks use different programs.   cheesy

My only wish left: An exception list, to exclude my browser and file manager from being affected.

Lucidity overlays a transparent image across your entire desktop.  That is, it does not apply the effect individually to each application window.

I think maybe the lack of interest is/was due to the fact that not many folks are familiar with Tox.  Is this the Tox you're working with?  https://tox.im/

Is it possible to open Control Panel > Devices and Printers with Splat? I'm on Windows 7.

Yes, make a Run action with this, exactly, as the target:

What is the exact folder path that you're running Splat from?

Would you mind trying this interim build and see if it fixes both issues?

Would a stop audio file action where you could add a wait # of seconds before the stop action to tell it how many seconds it should play for work?...or a couple vars with the play file action that allows you to specify start and end time of the play based on how long the sound is.

Good idea.  However, there won't be a separate "seconds to wait" option for the Audio action since you can already insert a wait using the Wait/delay action.

I do have a suggestion, though.
What if you don't want a hotkey for the profile?  I think there should be an option for "none" in the hotkey editor.

Right-click the profile and select "Clear launch hotkey" from the menu.

Also, if you click on the hotkey column and push F2, I think it should open the hotkey editor.

Traditionally, F2 is used for renaming and will remain so in Splat.  That said, a different hotkey is easy to add.  F4, perhaps?

Another idea; I would want to see a place for a description for the profile.  Maybe a third column in the profile listview or better, an edit panel that changed depending on which profile you click on.

Hmmm...not sold on this idea.

One more - another column in the action listview for description.

I've tried to make the Action column very descriptive based on parameters set.  Is there really a need for another description-related column?  Honest question...I'm not trying to be a hard-ass.  It's just that I want to keep Splat's interface as simple as possible.  I like applications that don't REQUIRE you read a help file to figure out.  Therefore, I try to write all my apps with this paradigm in mind.

And it would be very convenient to be able to stop any sound-clip playing, especially if you either have it wait to finish playing, or have selected a very long sound-clip.

Yes, a playing sound can be stopped.  So, the only problem here is "how" do you stop it?  Via hotkey?  A button on the main form?  I'm not sure I'm happy with either.  I need to think about this some more.

Jody, with regards to the checkboxes:
The state of the checkboxes would be saved to the settings file so when you close the program and reopen it, you can see which tasks have been completed.  It would make splat into sort of an executable todo list.

Hmmm...I currently don't want to add this sort of handling to Splat.  I'll add it to my requests list, though.  In the meantime:

    + Environment vars are now supported in the arguments and working directory
      fields.  (Thanks, lujomu)
    + Added "Play audio file" action.  (Thanks, lujomu)
    * The Profiles index file is now saved more often.  (Thanks, TaoPhoenix)
    ! Application icons should now work if environment variables are used in the
      path.  (Thanks, lujomu)


Lots of good changes.  Thank you, all, for testing.
