sImgurUploader only works with an anonymous API account so I'd choose the "Anonymous usage without user authorization" option (and leave the second part blank).

Has anybody else tried the watched/unwatched functionality and, if so, had any issues with it?

Great program! I just downloaded it tonight and tried it out. What little I entered so far is looking pretty good!   cheesy

Thanks, this has been a fun one to code.

One issue I encountered: Gotta be real careful when resizing the window.

I have seen/experienced this occsionally as well and I think the problem is contained in one of the various libraries I use to extend the capabilities of AutoHotkey.  Unfortunately, I've not been able to fully pin down why it does this.   Sad

I want to delete all the lines that begins with "dermatitis" without quotes.
But the effect is that all the lines are deleted.....

Follow lanux128's steps but check the "Regular Expressions" box and use this as a search string: ^dermatitis

Here is the latest interim build: http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_v1.1.0.24.zip

This moves the watched state data to its own watched.ini file in the data folder.  It should move any current watched data from the config.ini to the new watched.ini but if for some reason it doesn't, I apologise.   ohmy
132  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: January 26, 2014, 07:37:36 PM
I just seen that what is watched is in the config.ini. My idea still stands on reverse recording and it can stay in the config.ini.

Thank you for your idea.  However, I'm not going to do this because:
  • Your reverse way would involve having to compare the current list with any potential new additions every time a series is refreshed.  Programmatically, I find it much easier to simply keep track of watched episode IDs.  Sure, the list will grow over time but...
  • ...even with over a hundred TV shows and all episodes watched, the size of the text file is going to be inconsequential.  I tested this with 118 series and all episodes marked watched.  The resulting watched.ini file was only 158 KB.  That was with Doctor Who (700+ eps) and Cops (~900 eps).
  • In regards to a performance hit, again, I think it's going to be extremely minimal.  Most any (semi) modern computer can parse through thousands of lines in a text file in fraction of a second.
133  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Delete lines starting with a string in a txt file predefined on: January 26, 2014, 12:46:19 PM
Contro, you really ought to try Text Monkey Pro.  It's not free ($30) but it can do all sorts of things to text files including the thing you mention in this post and many that you've mentioned in the past.

http://www.boxersoftware.com/tmfeat.htm

In the "Line Operations" section, there is a "Delete lines that contain user-specified text" option that should cover your need expressed in this thread.
134  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: January 26, 2014, 10:01:00 AM
One request though. Possible to have in the options the ability to download only one image file? I, and others might be as well, am pretty simple when it comes to the image. I am fine with what ever one downloads, just that I went through and deleted all but one image per folder and it reduced the data folder by 90 percent.

I added your request in the latest interim build: http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_v1.1.0.22.zip

Also, I'm thinking I should have used a separate INI file for the watched data.  Possibly a "watched.ini" file saved in the data folder.  What do you all think?
135  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Automate options in windows 7 on: January 25, 2014, 09:53:22 PM
Bring up the Control Panel folder and then simply drag the "Folder Options" link to your Desktop (or wherever).

I've added the watched/unwatched tracking to epCheck but, before releasing it on my website, I'd like to get a bit of beta testing done. The current download is here:

http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_v1.1.0.21.zip

I would highly recommend making a copy of your current epCheck folder and then dumping this new build into the new folder.  That way, you won't mess up your current epCheck install.  Some thoughts:

  • The watched/unwatched feature is as simple as it gets.  Enable the checkbox a row for watched, clear the checkbox for unwatched. I will not be adding colour, blinky lights, etc.
  • You can highlight multiple rows in the episode list and use the right-click menu to set that selection as watched/watched.
  • You can right-click the series name in the Series list and choose to mark the whole series as watched/unwatched.
  • The watched/unwatched state of episodes is saved in the config.ini so, if you delete a series and add it back, your watched/unwatched states should still be there.
  • You can mark episodes in both the Series and Weekly tabs and they should stay synched. Note that I say should...  Can you say, "Beta?"

Anyway...download it, give it a thrashing, and report any bugs you find.  Again, this is a beta, so please don't be upset if, for whatever reason, it loses track of your carefully crafted watched/unwatched states.  Because of the two listviews in play, this turned out to be a bigger pain in the ass that I initially envisioned so I apologise in advance.   smiley  Please see below for other additions/fixes:

v1.1.1 - 2014-00-00
    + Added a simple tracking ability to epCheck.  You can now set the
      watched/unwatched state using the checkboxes for each episode.
    + Added a "Show special episodes" option to control whether or not a
      series' special episodes are listed.  (Thanks, lanux128)
    ! Worked around an issue where the episode list would sometimes be
      loaded twice.

AFAIK, AutoIt was created from the AHK codebase, because some people found the AHK 'language' was too unreadable in their opinion...

Actually, it was the other way around; AHK was created from AutoIt.

Hi, ramothgold, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   cheesy

I must say a truly excellent application.. I am not much of an average television watcher. To be honest I despise commercials, so I record all of my series. I have been keeping track writing everything down in a notebook and crossing it off as I finish with each episode. This great little app lets me do all that and more. Keep up the absolutely fantastic work.  Cool

Thank you very much for your kind words and taking the time to post.  Regarding epCheck, I'm currently adding functionality that will allow you to keep basic watched/unwatched state for each episode.  I'll probably release that version on this thread for some beta testing before I push it as a full release so stay tuned.

Thanks for this great program! I have one question(found a little bug in the weekly overview only), when I double click an episode title, the program start the browser (in my case opera)

I'm very glad you find the application useful and thank you for the bug report.  As I just mentioned above, I've been making some major changes to epCheck and I think I might have solved this bug as well.  Keep an eye open for a beta release on this thread and you can tell me for sure.

Ah, too bad.  I'm guessing that Windows reports it as one monitor so that's how Wallpaper Welder would see it.  Thanks for testing, though.

it would be nice if it recognize number range Kiss

Hi, zwow, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  I think your request might be a little out of scope for this app.  However, if you're interested, I can show you how to easily create such a list using my List Numberer application.  You could then paste said list into Text 2 Folders.
142  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: January 18, 2014, 01:24:24 PM
Is there a way I can mark the episodes I already watched?

Not currently, but it is something I plan on adding.

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

I have a small request, it's possible to not make the "Downloading data for: ${show}" dialog be always on top of other windows? It gets in the way of doing other things.

Sure thing.  Here you go:

v1.1.0 - 2014-01-15
    ! Made the "Adding series" splash box not always on top.  (Thanks, ReX)

Not a programmer but I think I can see your point on adding the keeping track of seen shows.

If I do add anything, it will be just be a checkbox on each row.  Checked for seen, unchecked for not seen.  No colours, et al.  Of course, I'll make it so it's easy to highlight and check multiple entries at once, make it easy to mark an entire series as watched, etc.  I do try to keep my apps very simple and focused so if something like that isn't going to be sufficient, you might want to take a look at Free TvDB as it's a much more complete app in this regard than epCheck will ever be.
150  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - Wallpaper Welder on: January 14, 2014, 09:29:36 PM
This is so exactly what I've been looking for! I have one monitor portrait and a second landscape.

Very, very cool because I never tested a portrait mode setup.  So, it works fine, eh?  If so, would you mind posting a screenshot of your Wallpaper Welder window?  I'd love to see it.

Donated, with thanks!

Thank you very much for the donation as I really appreciate them.   thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up
