Slick clone!  Suggestions:

  • Focus the edit field when switching to a different note.
  • Hide to tray icon.
  • Hotkey for hiding/showing main window.

Nice work, Chris.

I'm curious if this happens in IE7, 8 or 11 as well (I currently only have access to IE5.5, 6, 9 and 10).

It does NOT happen for me using IE 11.0.9600.17126 under W7/64 Ultimate.

Again, IMHO, the only value tabs would have in this nicely simple application would be if you could load the checklists in separate tabs.

The original design actually started out this way (with ten tabs).

(I suspect you used the tab control to not have to create a gui window for the options....)

You are correct.   smiley
131  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 12, 2014, 12:00:17 PM
Uh, Jody, I found out something else to do.

Somehow I managed to freeze the entire program - it seems to have had something to do with resizing.  I had to end process on it.
Problem is that before that, I had renamed a checklist, so when I restarted the application, my list was lost.
But I saw my old list - or part of it - in the checklists folder, and I edited checklist.dat to point to the newly-named one.
That went well, except that I lost the last 7 entries I made.

With that in mind, I think that sChecklist ought to save it's list after an edit is made in the list.  I'm not sure how often it saves, but it doesn't seem to save after an edit is made, or at least when the application loses focus.  I don't think there is any need for a "save" feature.

Funny you mention that since I was working on this very issue last night.  I've tried a few things in the latest version that will, hopefully, improve things.

Another thing to add is a way to import a list - perhaps drag-n-drop would be sufficient.  It could take the filename (without extension) as the automated name for the checklist.

I'll consider this.

Finally, is there any way to have or not have the lines in the checklists list?

Covered in the latest build.

    * Improvements to the save logic (crossing fingers).
    * Included the Checklists list in the "show gridlines" option.
      (Thanks, BGM).

HI, Jody, I *like* this!  I have tried dozens of todo applications.  This is so simple I might use it!

Good to hear.  I'm trying to strike a balance between nothing and a full-blown todo/task application.

I think it needs an option for displaying a particular checklist on startup - or at least the first checklist if none is specified.

Agreed.  I'll probably add an option that would display the last selected list on startup.

I think also, if you check all the items in a list, something should happen - something like, the name of the checklist becomes grayed.

I'll consider this (added to my ToDo list for this application).

And there should be an option to hide the status bar - I'm not sure it does anything anyway.

Currently it doesn't do anything but I do have plans to add at least a checked/unchecked count and percentage.  However, one side benefit to even a do-nothing statusbar is that it adds a much larger resizing grip to the bottom right corner, making it much easier to resize the app.

I made up 5 variants, I have set up a poll and I would like you to state which one of the 5 suits you best.

Welcome, pax.  As far as the poll options go, I don't like any of them.  You have to find a way to break them up via tabs (as mouser suggests) or, if you're intent on keeping them on the same form, at least use groupbox controls to group related items.
135  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 08, 2014, 07:15:22 PM
1) "Export to txt" (although user can manually open the .checklist file in notepad) and "Export to pdf"
2) Indented / grouped tasks, e.g.:

Export to text file is added to the latest build; see below.  In regards to indented tasks, there are other, fancier task-oriented apps out that do that already, so I feel it's somewhat out of scope for this app.

Very nice and elegant.  thumbs up

Thanks, mouser.  =]

A print option would also be nice to have.

This isn't easy to do in AHK but I'll add it to the list.

v1.0.1 - 2014-06-07
    + Added "Close button minimizes" option.  Note that the this new
      option is mutually exclusive of the "Close to tray" option.
      (Thanks, rgdot)
    + Added alpha, numeric, and random sort options to the toolbar.
    + Added Up/Down buttons to the toolbar to move a selection.  The
      Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down hotkeys handle this, too.
    + Added "Export list to text file" option.  (Thanks, Attronarch)
136  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 08, 2014, 12:38:23 AM
BTW, Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down currently moves a highlighted selection up and down through the list.  I'll add corresponding toolbar buttons as well.
137  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 08, 2014, 12:33:13 AM
Use delete key when some/all items of a list are selected?

Shift+Delete currently handles that.

139  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 07, 2014, 09:23:16 PM
Any chance the checked items can also have strikethrough?

Unfortunately, I'm pretty positive AutoHotkey cannot strikethrough individual lines in its listview handling options.  The best I could do would probably be to offer colouring options for the rows.  However, that involves a separate library and comes with its own set of potential issues.
140  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 07, 2014, 09:19:51 PM
Hope to give some feedback soon

Thanks.  =]  One of the reasons I'd like to get some testing is that, during development, there were certain conditions where saving a list would save it with nothing in it (effectively wiping it out).  I've endeavoured to handle all those conditions I could find but more testing would be welcome before I commit to releasing this fully.  Of course, it goes without saying, if you lose a carefully crafted list because of this, I'm sorry.   embarassed

tomos, perhaps this new app I wrote might fit your needs:  https://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=38115.0

I'd like to get a bit of beta testing on this app before I fully release it on my website.  Thanks to anybody who gives it a try.

I was hoping to get that beta testing before any of the software sites or blogs pick up the app.

TitlesChecklist
DescriptionA simple checklist app focused on ad-hoc lists.
Supported OSWindows 7.  Probably works, but not tested, on Windows XP/Vista/8
Website:http://skwire.dcmembers.com/fp/?page=schecklist
HistoryChangelog
DownloadsChecklist.zip
Screenshot[attachimg=1]

Introduction
Like most of my apps, I wrote this because I couldn't find a simple checklist app that suited my needs.  What I'm talking about is off-the-cuff, ad hoc types of lists.  The ones that, in the course of your (work) day, you find yourself wanting a quick way to set up a checklist, especially one that can be easily used over and over.  Just rows of text entries and a checkbox for each.  No B.S., no time tracking, and no crazy wizzbang features.  In other words, this app is not a time tracker nor is it meant as a full-blown project tracker.  There are plenty of extremely well done apps that already do this.  Task Coach, MyLifeOrganized, & ToDoList are but three that I'd recommend.

Again, rows of text entries and a checkbox for each -- that's what this app strives to provide.

Features
  • Mulitple list interface -- quickly add new lists or duplicate existing lists
  • Can hide in the system tray and be used with a hide/show hotkey
  • Cut/copy/paste entries from one list to another maintaining checked state
  • Paste entries in from the clipboard
  • Customizable list font
  • Sort checked items to top or bottom
  • Check all and uncheck all buttons
  • Always on top button

Installation
Download the zip file and extract its contents into a new folder.  Run sChecklist.exe to start the application.

Making sure I understand this... you cannot access anything from the shared library from multiple computers at the same time?

Correct.  I started Game-A on Computer-1 and attempted to start Game-B on Computer-2.  A warning box appeared stating that Computer-1 already had a game going and would be disconnected if I were to continue attempting to play on Computer-2.

146  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Steam: now has working beta of in-home streaming capability for games and apps on: June 06, 2014, 10:05:40 AM

For what it's worth, we (my oldest daughter and I) tested this yesterday using my desktop PC (nice gaming rig) and her laptop (not much a gaming laptop, i.e., HD3000 graphics chip).  I used FarCry3 as the test game and the whole experience actually worked out pretty well.  For a game like that on her laptop, typically, we have to really reduce the graphic settings in order to make the framerate playable.  However, using the streaming functionality, we were able to play FC3 on her laptop with MUCH better graphical quality than if we played directly on her laptop.  There was some screen tearing on the laptop side that reminded me of the effect you get when you play with a framerate higher than the refresh rate of your monitor.  However, we could have probably reduced that by using a lower resolution to play at as I think her laptop was struggling to keep up with the video decoding that drives this functionality.  At any rate, it was pretty damn slick overall.   thumbs up to Steam.   cheesy

And if it wasn't mentioned previously, one of the nice additional benefits of the In-Home Streaming feature is that you can now be signed into your Steam account on multiple PCs at the same time. This means you can also download games/updates to multiple PCs at the same time.  Thmbsup

Mouser and I were discussing this very thing yesterday in IRC.  And, yes, this is a VERY nice side benefit.  Beforehand, if you logged into Steam from a second computer, it would punt you out of the first one AND remove your saved password.  A right PITA to re-enter if you use randomly generated passwords like me.

(Or you can just play remotely, so that you don't need to download the game(s) on the second PC at all...)

That is correct.  However, you CANNOT play games from multiple computers at the same time.  Not even different games.  That is, only one computer can be playing one game at any one time.

Yep, we've been having a great time playing, especially using my Murmur (Mumble) server for voice chat.  Speaking of which, everybody is welcome to use my server at skwire.net for whatever you need.
148  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Translate Anything, from Anywhere with #GoogleTranslator+ on: June 03, 2014, 01:52:30 PM
Very nice.  Seems to work well.  As a suggestion, I'd add a toolbar for the basic functions, too.  Some folks won't remember the hotkeys.

Thanks for sharing!

150  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: make folder set out of a txt file on: June 01, 2014, 04:55:17 PM
That sounds perfect. Thanks!

Here's a beta build for your testing:  http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/text_2_folders/Text2Folders_.zip

Enable the option in the Options tab.  Also, to keep consistency with the %ts% token, I used %rp% instead of $root.  Please give this a test and let me know if it works how you envisioned.  If it passes muster, I'll promote the build and release it.  Thank you and apologies for the delay.
