Here's an alpha build:  DesktopFolderSwitcher.zip

Usage:

  • Right-click the tray icon and choose the "Edit desktop paths" entry to add your own folder paths.
  • One folder path per line.
  • Add a blank line to put a separator in the menu.
  • Click save and then right-click the menu again.
  • Your configured paths should now be in the menu.
  • Choose one to switch your desktop icons to the path selected.

Some notes:

  • Obviously, this is still mostly a proof-of-concept.  Stuff should work, mostly work, or not work at all.   tongue
  • No validity checking of those folders paths is currently performed.  Make sure they're valid.
  • When the program is first run, it saves the current desktop path and adds that path at the top of the menu.  This way, you should be able to easily go back to your default desktop path at any time.
  • No icon position saving.  I'm really really NOT interested in adding this functionality.

Tested on W7/64.  If anybody tries this, please let me know how it works (or doesn't) for you.  Please include your OS as well.

Stef, do you have AutoHotkey installed?
128  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Windows desktop productivity tool on: April 18, 2014, 01:02:09 AM
So, I have a working script but there is at least one caveat to this desktop folder switching like you want and that is the icon positions are not saved when switching the desktop from folder to folder.  How important is this to you?
129  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Windows desktop productivity tool on: April 18, 2014, 12:24:19 AM
I have some working proof-of-concept code that can switch the desktop and doesn't require a logoff.  I need to play with it a bit more, though.  Stay tuned.

The "ep display format not saving" bug should be (finally) fixed now in build #56:

Also in Build 49 format S01E01 is still showing as s01e01
Several attempts to set it to S01E01 work until shutdown, then display resets to s01e01

Ahhhh...I know what the issue is now.  I will fix.

Sooo?  No glaring issues with the betas?  If not, I'll promote this build and release it.

Last call...   cheesy

Hi, mahanaim, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley  As you can probably guess, with the way the Windows file system works, what you want is not an easy thing to do.  Typically, it's going to require a low-level file system driver and that's well outside of the realm of a simple AHK script.

Beta build #54:  http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_beta.zip

This is mainly a bugfix build.  The blank profile bug should be fixed.  Deleting a profile should now delete the appropriate series' data folders (if a series doesn't exist on another profile).  I also added text to the status bar that shows which profile is currently selected.  This can be helpful when adding series (so you know which profile you have selected).
136  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Shortcuts to files integration to a new window on: April 13, 2014, 04:52:53 PM
First thought: Contro, you REALLY need to invest in a good third-party file manager instead of always trying to make Windows Explorer do things it wasn't really designed to do.

Second thought: It sounds like you want what is known as a "flat view."  In a Windows Explorer window, have you tried the following?:

  • Press F3.
  • Enter *.* in the search field.
  • Press Enter.

When deleting a profile it leaves a "blank profile" and in folder it leaves one .txt and one .bak file (0kb) . . .

Yep, this one I was aware of and I will fix it.  Thanks for the report!  thumbs up
139  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: April 10, 2014, 05:58:18 PM
Found the problem with my 1st question, the reason for the folders not being deleted is that I removed the profile where they were and didn't deleted them first. I assumed that it would automatically delete their content.   huh

Well, it should and, obviously, my code is faulty!  Thanks for the bug report and I'll try to get this fixed in the next build.  In the meantime, if you want to clean up yourself, do the following:

  • Delete all numbered folders in the data folder.  Leave the TXT, BAK, and INI files alone, however.
  • Go to the Options tab and click the "Refresh all series data now" button.

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

First of all, thanks for this great app, a big THANK YOU for all of your hard work!  Thmbsup

You're very welcome.  I'm glad you find it useful.

I've got to say that English is not my native language, so please be patient.  Roll Eyes

Your English is just fine.  Please don't worry.   cheesy

I have Windows 7 32 and I've been testing epcheck latest version 1.1.3 build 49, and so far so good, everything works as it is supposed to.
I've added, moved, copied and removed a lot of series and every other functions seems to work as intended. cheesy

Great, thanks for testing.

1 - A minor question - I went to "epcheck folder\data" and saw that the folders (numbered) containing the retrieved data (banners and xml files) for some series that I've deleted were still there...

I'll check into this.

2 - A bigger question :p lol - would it be possible to expand/collapse seasons? I mean series with lots of eps and/or seasons like, south park, simpsons doctor who and others, will fill up the right pane...

You make a good point.  However, programmatically, this would be somewhat difficult due to some AHK limitations.  This is why I added the "automatically scroll to bottom" option.

is there some way to change either the font, or weight, or size of the fonts used in the IE interface?

If you hold down the control key and roll the mouse wheel, you should see the font size (zoom level) change in IE and most (all?) other browsers.
142  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: April 09, 2014, 03:54:06 PM
What I meant about a UK version is, The Mentalist for instance is shown as the US channel and time and often ahead of the UK airing.

I use the TVDB.com database for epCheck and it typically uses the channel/time of a given series' originating country.  In other words, UK-specific data is not there for an American series such as The Mentalist.  That is, unless you know how to get UK-specific data out of the TVDB.com.   smiley

I just uploaded beta v1.1.3 build #49 which has the "copy to profile" addition.

144  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: April 09, 2014, 03:13:18 PM
Version 1.1.3 build 47 is excellent. No bugs... (Windows 8 Pro, 64-bit)

Thanks for the report.

One suggestion: Option to remove column (Air time, Air date, Network...)

Just set them to zero-width.  That's all I'd do programmatically anyway.  =]

Hi Jody, a clue to the paths issue

Please read this post.  It's an AutoHotkey bug.

Any chance of being able to copy (as well as move) a series from one profile to another, so I can keep an eye on all my selected series?

Yes, that is in the works.

The other may not be so easy but was thinking about a UK version?

Hmmm...I'm not sure what you mean here.   huh  Could you please explain in a bit more detail?

Thanks for this brilliantantly useful prog.

You're very welcome.  I'm glad you find it useful.

How about placing in the program that the "Weekly" tab only shows the currently chosen profile.

I was initially against this but you're the second person to request it so I'll give it more consideration.

Here's the latest epCheck beta build for testing.  The profiles feature turned out to be a lot more complicated than I initially envisioned.  If you come across issues, please try to tell me, step-by-step, how to reproduce them and I'll endeavour to get them fixed.

http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_beta.zip

  • The profiles feature is currently a BETA feature and needs some testing.  As such, there is a good possibility that it might not work as designed and your epCheck data might be lost or otherwise munged.  MAKE BACKUPS.
  • You must have at least one profile.  That said, a series can exist on multiple profiles.
  • When doing a series search, a series gets added to the currently active profile.

Here's the current changelog for this beta build:

   + Added a "Profiles" option that allows you to create multiple lists of
      series.  For example, you could create a Watched list, a Cancelled
      list, an Ended list, etc.  Check out the Options tab to create new
      profiles.  The profiles feature is currently a BETA feature and needs
      some testing.  As such, there is a good possibility that it might not
      work as designed and your epCheck data might be lost or otherwise
      munged.  Make backups.
    + Added the series air time (EST) and network to the both the series
      and weekly listviews.  (Thanks, Daniel P.)
    + Added status column to listviews.
    + Added icons to tab labels.
    + Added right-click search menu to the Search tab so you can now more
      easily find information on the search results.  (Thanks, kalvanotherwhen)
    * Changed "Load weekly view on startup" option to "Load weekly data on
      startup" to avoid confusion with the startup tab option.
      (Thanks, hamradio)
    ! Fixed some issues with the right-click web search menu.
    ! Episode display format was not saved and applied properly.  (Thanks,
      kalvanotherwhen)


In case you didn't get the message...MAKE BACKUPS.  Specifically, your epCheck data folder and the config.ini file.  I don't want to hear the crying if your data goes poof.

ohmy  Is it just me, or has anyone else had problems getting to Skwire Empire?

Yep, looks like the dcmembers.com server is throwing its toys out of the pram.  Was there anything, in particular, that you needed from the site?
