Bump! Any testers?

Just started playing with this...

I second the drag-n-drop suggestion.

Suggestion: If a URL is detected on the clipboard, pre-populate the 'Entry' field when adding a new entry.  You could make it even more efficient by adding a "Add URL from clipboard" option that wouldn't even display the 'Adding a New Entry' dialogue.  It would simply add the URL to which group is selected at the time.  Just a thought.

Is there a way to auto-open the last used checkbook file?

Yes, this can be done.  I'm out of town this week so I'll take care of it when I get back.

And to make the path to that file relative/ portable?

Ehhh...I'll have to see about this.

The latest - just downloaded it today.

I fired up my XP virtual machine and epCheck seems to work fine in that.  It launched immediately and I was able to add three sample shows and view the associated episode data.  I really am at a loss for what's happening with your system.  Are you running any sort of antivirus that could be affecting things, perhaps?

Hmmm...I only develop and test on Windows 7.  Which version of epCheck are you running?

Hi, MetcalfeP, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley

I know, I am reviving a very old request but having found this great program the one feature that would make it excellent for me (and I am obviously not alone) as opposed to great would be this exact feature.
Adding in the <> to the tolerance options would make this excellent.

I'll see what I can do.  Thank you.

The use of the folder delimiter also really needs a better explanation.

That feature lets you specify which character(s) to use in between the width and the height.  By default, the value is " x ".  That is, space, x, space, resulting is destination folders such as "800 x 600"  and "1024 x 768" etc.  You could put a single dash in there and it would create folders such as "800-600" and "1024-768" etc.  You can try different values in that field and it will update the sample text to the right in real-time.  Does that explain things a bit more clearly?

Hi, stevebass, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley

Wondering if there's a way you could modify the app to allow users to add a search engine to the Web search feature.

Were you asking for complete user configurability?  Or, did you just want me to add one for you?

Pretty substantial update:

Website | Download
v1.0.8 - 2014-10-21
    + sStockQuote can now handle more than 200 symbols in the list.
    + Added text-to-speech option for alerts.
    + Each stock can now have a "notes" field where you can enter in whatever
      textual date you like.  This data is displayed in the main stock data
      listviews.  (Thanks, P. Alby)
    + You can now specify a "Shares owned" value for each stock.  This value is
      displayed in the main listviews and a "Share value" column is calculated
      by multiplying the "Shares owned" value and the "Last trade" value.
    + Added an import feature by which you can mass import stock symbols.  Go
      to the Options tab > List and click the Import button.  (Thanks, D. Wong)
    * Completely reworked the Options tab.
    * The alerts.lst file has been renamed to alerts.log.
    ! Choosing File, Exit from the menu didn't always close out the application.

Description: select multiple files or folders and move them (without any popup window) to the folder named "YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS", where YYYY - year, MM - month and so on.. Probably with ms too.

No, because F2F is designed to show the popup with multiple items selected.  I can see about adding it as an option to the popup dialogue box, if you want.

Also, is it possible to add a global hotkey?

No, because the program doesn't stay resident in memory.

If I could just select the group of programs that I have to use in this project and set them all to have a common open/save-in path until they are all closed, that is really all i need.

It just doesn't work this way in Windows.  There's no common API that all apps must use when saving files.  Furthermore, some apps save their last-used info in the registry, others in local INI files.

New user here but exact same requirements as vbmark.

Hi, R-X, and welcome to the DonationCoder forums.   smiley  My script from above can easily be adapted to do what you want.  It current just shows a message box when the memory limit is exceeded but that can be changed to kill a process.  Are you familiar with AutoHotkey scripting?
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Change the focus of all the"save or search in" possibilities at once on: October 16, 2014, 08:56:56 AM
Search the forum for "dialog extenders."
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Folder / Files Copier on: October 16, 2014, 08:17:00 AM
Which OS are you running?

In the meantime, please do the following:

1) Create a root test folder: c:\test
2) Within that root folder, create another folder named tmp, e.g., c:\test\tmp
3) Within that root folder, create a test filed named test.txt, e.g., c:\test\test.file
4) In the list.txt file where you have FF2CB installed, add these two lines and save it:

c:\test\tmp
c:\test\test.file


5) Run the FF2CB.exe file and press Ctrl+K (unless you've changed the hotkey).
6) Attempt to paste into another folder using the standard Ctrl+V hotkey.

If that doesn't work, close down FF2CB from the tray menu, try running it with administrator rights, and repeat the Ctrl+K/Ctrl+V steps.  Let me know how it goes.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Folder / Files Copier on: October 16, 2014, 07:29:37 AM
Thanks for that, do I need to create the list of folder / files a certain way? How does it know if it is a folder or file?

Nothing special...just one item per line.  There is no need to differentiate between files and folders.
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Folder / Files Copier on: October 15, 2014, 06:36:00 PM
Here's a quick-n-dirty app for you to try:  http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/snacks/FB2CC.zip

Please let me know if this is what you wanted.  Thank you.

From the readme:

[copy or print]
FF2CB
Copyright (c) 2014 Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)
http://skwire.dcmembers.com

FF2CB is a tray-based application that allows you to specify a hotkey that
copies a list of files and folders to your clipboard.

Usage:

1) Unpack the zip file to a convenient place on your drive.
2) Open the list.txt file in a text editor and create a list of files and/or
   folders that you want copied to your clipboard.
3) Right-click the tray icon and choose "Set hotkey" to change the default
   hotkey (Ctrl+K) to something else.
4) Press the hotkey you set.  Your list is now copied to the clipboard and
   you can paste as normal into any file manager.

Notes:
 
1) You can change the list.txt in real-time as it's read in each time you
   use the hotkey.
2) If you're not a fan of hotkeys, you can use the "Copy to clipboard" entry
   in the tray menu instead.

Hi, first time on this forum and looking for a real wizard out there.

Hi, wizard_not, and welcome to the DonationCoder forum.   smiley

I have a standard file structure on a server including folders and files for every piece of work I and others do.
I want to be able to use windows explorer to browse to a certain location eg Z:\clients\d\dean\
Then I want to be able to copy the standard folder structure into this folder using ctrl +k (or any other shortcut)

I think the most reliable way to do this would be to have your Ctrl+K hotkey perform a "copy" operation of your folder structure, programmatically, to your clipboard.  You'd then be free to paste normally into whichever file manager you use.  Does this sound workable?

There's an older thread on this very thing: https://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=17371.0

Duh.  cnt believe i found it so fast.  In case anyone else needs this.  Download from HERE

Nice find.  However, I've noticed some limitations:

  • Can't resize the form.
  • Can't sort the columns.
  • The CSV output breaks if there are commas in the filepaths.

The Name Knife tool I wrote in the thread above currently considers only filenames (by request) but it wouldn't take much to add options to handle full paths, etc.  I might just go ahead and do that and release it on my site since it seems others would get some use from it.

I'll move this thread to the Finished section.

22  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Open images without program window showing. on: October 10, 2014, 09:04:15 PM
You can now resize images as you would a normal window.  Hold down the shift key while resizing to keep the images's original aspect ratio.  Resizing is not supported for GIF files nor when the trans=alpha option is in use.

Website | Download
v1.1.5 - 2014-10-10
    + Images are now resizable.  This excludes GIF files and files where the
      "trans=alpha" parameter are in effect.  Holding down the shift key while
      resizing keeps the image's aspect ratio.  (Thanks, B. Johnson)

simple syncing with all devices and browsers, ideally no plugins needed.

And this feature, which is very unrealistic, but would be awesome:
ability to search ONLY in your bookmarks for keywords.  Or just the sites that are bookmarked.  Man, I would love that.

syncing with online services: pinboard, diigo or xmarks

Kinda blows 40Hz's "basic" and "standalone" requirements right out of the water, eh?   tongue
