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?
130  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?

Hi, rm, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  Sorry to hear you're having trouble with Splat.  Which OS are you running on your computer?

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.
142  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release - Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination) on: January 15, 2015, 11:21:36 AM
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.

v1.0.5 - 2015-01-14
    + Added "Launch state" option to the Run action.  (Thanks, Ganamyde)
    * More detail in the Launch Log for Run events.
    ! Editing a "Run (even if running)" event didn't pre-set the radio button
      properly.  (Thanks, Ganamyde)

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:

v1.0.4 - 2015-01-14
    + Ctrl+Enter now launches the selected profile when the Splat window is
      focused.  (Thanks, tomos)
    + Shift+Enter now runs any selected entries.  Useful for testing.  (Thanks,
      tomos)
    + 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.

Is 1.1.5.163 “it” or should we be checking back for 1.1.6 cited in changelog.txt?

v1.1.5.### will become v1.1.6 once I feel confident enough to release it.  I made a TON of internal changes so I'm a bit leery about it currently.

Monthly view is awesome. Thanks for adding this! thumbs up

You're welcome, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   thumbs up

It might be worth it to have a wrapper in a more robust language for tasks like this that would offload the actual long running task to a background thread...  would that be helpful?

Not really since the core of the issue is TheTVDB.com website's speed (at times).  Thank you all the same, though.   cheesy
146  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release - Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination) on: January 14, 2015, 05:51:06 AM
But I'm guessing this new version has portions of Trout mashed into it.

Actually, no.  Trout uses the BASS library.  Splat's audio handling just uses the simple SoundPlay command in AHK.

So, you will be responsible for at least $500 of increased productivity

Great.  Said persons can donate the aforementioned $500 to me and make my day.   tongue

Jody, I made a similar program in autohotkey to use for provisioning computers.
(see attachment in previous post)

That looks great (and very releaseable).   cheesy

So, what about adding checkboxes to splat?

I'm not sure what purpose this would serve because the current launch log serves a similar purpose, no?

Environment variables now do work in target, arguments and working directory field and the app icons are also displayed properly! Perfect!  Thmbsup
'Play audio file' action does work great and certainly makes things easier and neater!

Wonderful.  Thank you for testing.   Thmbsup

Just uploaded v1.0.3 build 6 which adds a "Play audio file" action.   cheesy  There is an additional "wait for audio file to finish playing before continuing" option associated with this action.  Please test and let me know if it all functions properly.  I'll check back in the morning.

You're most welcome.   smiley

Looking forward to exploring the site. I was drooling over the software reviews last night.

Enjoy your stay.   Thmbsup

I also noticed that no app/file icon is displayed if you use an environment variable in the target path, but thats fine with me.

I'll see if there is anything I can do about this.

v1.0.3 build 4 fixes this issue.  Please test and let me know if it works for you.
