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?

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.

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
140  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.

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.

The environment variable support seems to work fine for the target of an entry. Could the support maybe be extended to the arguments and the working directory?

Please test this interim build and see if it works now for the args and working dir.  http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/splat/Splat_.zip

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.

  • Running a profile from command line/shortcut works great! I understand that the progress is reflected in the tray icon, but I added a 'Run' entry at the end of my profiles that plays a notification sound when the profile is done launching
You know, I could easily add a "Play sound" action...    Wink

Thanks again for the app - it has instantly risen to the Olymp of my daily used apps! Wink

I'm glad you've found the application useful.   smiley

So I came over here and found 1.1.5.163 and that seems to unzip all the data but epCheck does enter into (Not Responding) a half a dozen times or so.

The problem is two-fold:

  • I use the 7-zip application to handle the unzipping so while it's actually unzipping a file, epCheck can't do anything but wait.  However, most of the zips are pretty small so the waits here shouldn't affect things much.
  • The bigger issue at hand is that the TVDB.com site has been really slow lately.  Most of the Not Responding is epCheck simply waiting for the zip downloads to finish.

It's rather frustrating as there isn't a whole lot that I can do about it.  Sadly, the best advice I can give is to simply leave epCheck alone while it's doing the updates.

I'm trying Splat simply for opening a group of files - it seems like a great way to open, and keep a record of, files related to a specific query/topic/whatever.

Very nice.  I've been doing something similar as well.

  • Having hotkeys is great, but would you consider a generic shortcut to launch the selected profile e.g. Enter; or Ctrl+Enter
  • would it be possible to run one entry in a profile (I presume this could also be advantageous when testing) either via context menu, or again, with Enter or variation on same

Actually, both are already on my ToDo list.  Keep in mind that copy/paste should work between profiles so you can keep a simple TEST profile.  That's what I do for now.
148  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release - Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination) on: January 13, 2015, 12:58:19 AM
And by "later today" I really meant three days later.  However, it's a huge update with many new additions and features.

@lujomu: I think have environment variables working.  Please test and let me know.
@pamu: You can now right-click a profile and create a desktop shortcut to run that profile without seeing the user interface.

Again, lots of changes so please read the changelog and report any bugs.

Website | Download
v1.0.3 - 2015-01-12
    + Added an entry to the Profiles menu that can create a shortcut on the
      desktop which directly runs a Splat profile.  Profiles launched in this
      manner will display the tray icon for the duration of the profile and then
      exit.  The full Splat interface will NOT be displayed.
    + Added support for environment variables.  (Thanks, lujomu)
    + Added 'Clear log before each profile launch' option.
    + Added ability to specify a window's title or partial title when closing a
      program.  This can help with the reliability of the close action.
    + Added ability to run a profile within a profile.
    + Added optional, Alt+F4 close method to the Close action.
    + Added a real, honest-to-goodness help file.  Really.
    * Consolidated some of the "Close application" settings.
    * Tray icon now displays a triangular blue run icon when a profile is
      running.
    ! Moving a profile didn't update the tray profile menu.
    ! Undo/Redo were broken.

Hi, onyxonyx1, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley  Is there any reason you posted this in the NANY 2007 section?

Can you help me to get text from a Cell in Excel?
I tried using GetVisibleWindow text but I cannot get it to get the text from the Cell.

The GetVisibleWindow text isn't going to work for Excel.  You will need to use the COM interface as described here:
