v1.0.4 build 6 - 2010-02-20
    ! Fixed graphical screwups under Win9x that were introduced in version 1.0.4 build 1.  (Thanks, Drugwash)


An old issue here - apologies if I repeat myself: since I disabled second monitor in Display Properties (doesn't exist physically anymore), Trout's main window remained at coordinates outside the now only monitor. The Options window also opens at old coordinates, far from reach.
Would it possible to add code that checks if saved window position matches the virtual screen boundaries and if not, move it somewhere inside? I know it's easy to edit the config file, but for the sake of professionalism... Wink

It's been on the ToDo forever.   cheesy

Also, after I made the corrections, I noticed the recent changes do not apply correctly on my Win98SE machine: the seekbar overlaps the info window and the volume gets overlapped by the latter; most likely you forgot to apply the changes to the Win9x part of the respective controls.  embarassed

Doh!  I actually DID have this adjusted under Win9x but I must've reverted those changes before compiling the build.  They should be fixed in the above version.  Sorry about that.

Have you thought again about making the info area a RichEdit control? I've tested the cRichEdit wrapper some time ago and it works fine in 9x - I've even posted a test script at the AHK forums, in the BASS thread [link]; should work without problems in XP+ too, I guess..

Extremely unlikely that this will happen.
3155  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Tag2Folder-New Feature added 1.0.3 'Close Tag2Folders after Conversion' on: February 19, 2010, 08:06:03 PM
I hope this is the appropriate place to make comments and suggestions.  First off, great little program .. just what I was looking for.  These are some thoughts that came to mind as I tried it out for the first time.  I hope they can be of help...

Thanks for the compliment and feedback.  Yep, this is the place for requests and suggestions.   smiley

- Tags2Folders doesn't remove its temp folder/files ($$$$$_Tags2Folders_temp) it created in the Windows temp directory.  Is this intentional?
- Doesn't maintain Created datestamps on the copied/moved files.  Could this be added.  Sometimes Created is useful when sorting/finding/organizing files.
- There's no way to pause or abort the process once started, short of hitting the big "X".  Could the 'Go' bar act as a toggle?
- Could config.ini to be changed to Tags2Folders.ini?  That way the program could exist in a directory where other programs create or read a config.ini.
- Config.ini doesn't remember Copy/Move option.  Could this be added?

v1.0.4 - 2010-02-19
    + Added option to preserver file modification times.  (Thanks, TT1)
    + Added capability to cancel file processing once started.  (Thanks, TT1)
    * Copy/Move files options is now remembered between sessions.  (Thanks, TT1)
    * Changed configuration file name to Tags2Folders.ini.  (Thanks, TT1)
    ! Temp folder is removed properly now.  (Thanks, TT1)


- The program has a problem when used on a system with a different DPI setting (Rt.click on Desktop, Settings, Advanced, DPI setting, set to 120dpi).  Some of the text is partially missing. (see: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=129586)

Hmmm...I do have code in place for 120DPI boxes and it looks fine on my test VM under that DPI setting.  Would you mind posting a screenshot and I'll fix it in the next build?

- If files are already in the destination, could you skip the copy/move if filename and MD5 matches (as an option).  This might speed things up, effectively copying/moving only those files that aren't already in the destination.

I don't overwrite any existing files so they should be "skipped" already.

- Will this work with 10,000+ files (due to limited buffer space, etc.)?  I just want to make sure before I let'er rip...  ;>)

Yes, shouldn't be a problem.  The slowest part is the actual copying/moving of the files.  The tag scanning is adapted from my Trout audio player and is very fast (if I may be so bold).  I'd be curious to know how it does perform for you, though.   cheesy

v1.0.4 - 2010-02-19
    + Added a "Delete to Recycle Bin" right-click option for the bucket listview.  (Thanks, R. Nesselroad)

I forgot about "WinActivate and WinWaitActive" - I'll look into those.  I think I've used the other commands before. Thanks!

Oh, I forgot--will this still work if the computer's "locked"?

Doubtful.

This is the perfect scenario for a simple personal AutoHotkey script.  http://www.autohotkey.com  The commands you're going to want to look up are Sleep, Send, WinActivate, and WinWaitActive.  If you're not able to write it yourself, let us know and we'll help out.

I can sort of confirm the nothing happens (I'm on Win7 x64 pro). I didn't have any pics with the same resolution as the desktop, but I gave it a shot with a different size and it tiled the existing wallpaper into blocks the size of the image I'd selected.

(Correction/clarification-> It didn't change the size of the currently displayed wallpaper, it only tiled it at its native size (it had been stretched to fit).

Hmmm...that would indicate that it DID try to set the wallpaper.    huh

I don't have Windows 7 so I have no way of testing it.  At this point, I'd have to guess that Microsoft have changed something with the way wallpapers are set between XP and Windows 7.
3161  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Dockable auto-hiding drag & drop multi-monitor desktop wallpaper app on: February 16, 2010, 10:21:20 AM
Here is one of the crudest proof-of-concepts I've ever released.  Currently, there are NO options to do anything to your chosen images (stretch, center, etc).  So, for the best results, pick two images that match the resolution of one of your monitors.  For instance, I have two 1680x1050 screens so I'd choose two different images whose dimensions are each 1680x1050.  

Usage:  
  • 1) Simply drag and drop an image to each box and click the "Set" button.
  • 2) If the images didn't end up on the monitor you expected them to, click the "Swap" button and then click "Set" once more.

Caveats:
  • 1) Currently, this application is intended for dual-monitor setups where the monitors are the same resolution and side-by-side.
  • 2) WinXP and later; no Win9x support.  You should be able to use this under Win2k if you have the gdiplus.dll installed.


Again, this is a proof-of-concept and, at this point, I'm not even certain I want to continue making this into a full-fledged application.

All that said, I'd be curious to know if it works on anything besides my home and work computers.  =]

I assume you're talking about Active Desktop?
3163  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Dockable auto-hiding drag & drop multi-monitor desktop wallpaper app on: February 14, 2010, 08:52:56 PM
That means that every software has to stitch the different graphics together to put onto this "one" desktop?

Based on what I know...yes.  If anybody knows otherwise, by all means, say so.  =]
3164  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Dockable auto-hiding drag & drop multi-monitor desktop wallpaper app on: February 14, 2010, 07:25:47 PM
Would allowing multiple copies of our theoretical utility to run, one per monitor desktop, make things any easier? (I doubt it but it's an angle I thought needed to be at least mentioned).

Unfortunately, no.  Windows sees all your monitors (I've tested six at once before) as one piece of desktop real estate.

3166  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Dockable auto-hiding drag & drop multi-monitor desktop wallpaper app on: February 14, 2010, 10:59:56 AM
Seriously though, it would make the app a lot more useful to me personally. I figured that reading the monitor information from the OS might not be so easy, so it's not a dealbreaker, but if all the solutions on here were trivial then I'm sure this site wouldn't be half as much fun as it is.

Actually, reading the monitor information is the easy part.  The problem stems from the fact that there is no built-in API to handle per-monitor wallpapers.  That part has to be handled manually via GDI+ or some other image manipulation library.  In other words, the images you want to use have be stitched/cut/cropped into one image that is actually stretched across your two monitors.  That's the not-so-easy part.  =]  Make sense?
3167  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Dockable auto-hiding drag & drop multi-monitor desktop wallpaper app on: February 14, 2010, 09:48:34 AM
This is trivial to write with the exception of being able to specify a per-monitor-specific wallpaper.  How adamant are you on that feature request?

I guess he means that most desktops, even when "off", actually pull a trace amount of juice.  For instance, my server box's power supply still has a lit LED when the machine is off.

I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but, for the next thirty days, you can download several of the older games in the Command & Conquer series for free at http://www.commandandconquer.com/classic

Command & Conquer (both GDI and NOD sides)
Command & Conquer: Red Alert (both Allied and Soviet sides)
Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun

The domain appears to be owned by Electronic Arts so I would think that this is a legit promotion.

3172  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Can DimSaver become DimScreen? on: February 11, 2010, 04:52:27 AM
Here you go:  http://skwire.dcmembers.c...s/snacks/DimScreenMod.zip

Changes:

  • Took out percentage tray menu.  Application is run strictly via hotkeys now.
  • Changed code so dim setting runs from 0-99.
  • Added tooltip showing current dim setting.
  • Startup dim setting can be any value between 0-99.
3173  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Can DimSaver become DimScreen? on: February 11, 2010, 03:07:52 AM
You can set the startup value under the application's options to whatever value you would like i.e. it doesn't have to be a multiple of ten.  So, with a bit of trial and error, you should be able to find which value between 91 and 99 your daughter can work with.  If this isn't workable, I can see about modifying the code for you.
