i've seen a company (that i can't find now) that make a large flat board with button like keys you position anywhere on the board. i think they must be magnetic.

I think you're talking about this one: http://accessories.us.del...mp;cs=19&sku=a0643515

If you find that Karen's Directory Printer doesn't suit your needs, this wouldn't take more than a couple minutes to write up in AHK.
3153  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: could two numeric keypads work at the same time on: May 04, 2010, 05:29:54 AM
I'm thinking we need to see some pictures of your various setups so we know what we're dealing with here.  =]

Could you enable drag&drop support in the playlist itself?

Not easily within AHK (the language this player is written in), no.

I sometimes want to move some track up or down ...

Ctrl-up/Ctrl-down will move a contiguous selection.

Could you make option to lock columns?

Again, not easily within AHK.  What I do is set a local hotkey to the "Justify columns" action to quickly resize columns.

You would almost certainly have to use the HID stuff to make something like this work:  http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/topic41397.html

I couldn't get it to go until I uninstalled Folder Guide,  MMM and another context menu program MooO  so there must be a correlation between having Context menu programs and Files2Folders

I honestly have no idea why it won't work with those other apps installed.

Thanks skwire another good program..

You're welcome.  I'm glad folks find it useful.
3161  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Toggle mouse acceleration with a simple program on: May 01, 2010, 09:26:41 PM
Yeah...but I don't see how this will help you since you can't do much with the LMB held down, right?  In other words, you may want to change the LMB to a key or something.
3162  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Toggle mouse acceleration with a simple program on: May 01, 2010, 07:23:33 PM
You can't do it directly with MAT, but you can easily with a couple of AHK hotkeys set up like this:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. ~^!+LButton:: Run, C:\path\to\MouseAccelToggler.exe accel=on speed=20 cursor="C:\path\to\cursor.cur"
  2. ~^!+LButton Up:: Run, C:\path\to\MouseAccelToggler.exe accel=off speed=10 cursor="Default"

This will let you use ctrl-alt-shift-left mouse button down to do one thing and another when releasing it.

... I've also been meaning to add an option that will allow the user to specify a "no cover" image of their own.
Yes, please!  smiley

In the meantime, you can simply replace res/no_cover.jpg with a JPEG of your own.
3164  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Toggle mouse acceleration with a simple program on: May 01, 2010, 08:13:09 AM
Here's a test version with your custom cursor request: http://skwire.dcmembers.c...er/MouseAccelToggler_.zip

Simply pass cursor="c:\path\to\some\cursor.cur"

You can also pass cursor="Default" to restore the normal cursor.  One caveat that I haven't been able to figure out yet is that, when using a custom cursor, it is used for all cursor functions i.e. no resizing cursors, no I-beam, etc.   huh  At any rate, let me know if it works for you.  I've tested it under Win2k and WinXP.  I don't have Vista or Win7.

not sure what's wrong but all Mouse Acceleration Toggler functions have stopped working here. i've not rebooted yet so will have to see what happens after that.

I haven't a clue.   embarassed
3165  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: all links for software are broken on: May 01, 2010, 07:41:43 AM
Agreed, great idea.
3166  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Toggle mouse acceleration with a simple program on: April 30, 2010, 09:07:38 AM
would it be asking too much if the user could pick their own cursors to use.

I actually don't use this app myself but, yes, I plan to have this configurable on MAT's command-line since there is no real GUI to speak of. 
3167  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Toggle mouse acceleration with a simple program on: April 30, 2010, 07:48:50 AM
i'd be very happy to edit/design some cursors to include - if this is possible.

Yes, this can be done so feel free to send me any test .ANI/.CUR files you want to use.  I like the idea of a standard cursor with small numbers the best.
3168  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Toggle mouse cursor speed or acceleration with hotkey on: April 30, 2010, 06:54:50 AM
yes, that is perfect. i've not tried it with my mouse buttons to activate it (toggle) yet but it looks like it will do it.
it also does more than i could ever have hoped for - with the extra speed control. that opens up so many more levels or control. brilliant.
(i'll let mouser know - he might like this on his system too.)

Sweet.  =]  I'm glad it'll work for you.

as usual, i've had a quick scan through the autohotkey forums and i can't decide if this is something near impossible or quite trivial.

As an aside, you'd be shocked at how little code there is in this app.
3169  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: refresh all open browsers automatically? on: April 30, 2010, 06:52:13 AM
if you don't mind, maybe i'll try and modify the browser refresh script into a little tray app - just with a menu for selecting browsers or something. it would give me something to play with and learn autohotkey.

By all means, please do.  I'm happy to help if you get stuck, too.
3170  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: refresh all open browsers automatically? on: April 30, 2010, 06:28:41 AM
excellent. it now appears to work (it got stuck a couple of times but i can't say why).
i've just changed the SendInput to F5 as Maxthon didn't want to respond (even after making sure that ctrl+R did work for it).

Who knows?   cheesy  That's how these scriptlets go sometimes.  You could play with the sleep value a bit to see if that helps.

perhaps this should be included on Skwire Empire - i think it's a really helpful web development util. i still don't understand why there hasn't been something like this around for years.

*shrug* Honestly, that above code  is very simple and could be set as a hotkey in your main AHK script (if you use one).  Bits like this really show off how flexible and powerful AHK is as a language.

i'll send some DC credits later - just waiting for them to go into my account first.
thanks very much for this, skwire.

You are most welcome.  Happy to help.   smiley

Try this:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. WinGet, myList, List
  2. Loop, % myList
  3. {
  4.    myID := myList%A_Index%
  5.    WinGetTitle, myTitle, % "ahk_id " . myID
  6.    WinGetClass, myClass, % "ahk_id " . myID
  7.  
  8.    If myTitle contains Firefox,Chrome,Maxthon,Opera,Internet Explorer
  9.    {
  10.        WinActivate, % "ahk_id " . myID
  11.        WinWaitActive, % "ahk_id " . myID
  12.        SendInput, {Ctrl down}r{Ctrl up}
  13.        Sleep, 250
  14.        ; ControlSend, , {Ctrl down}r{Ctrl up}, % "ahk_id " . myID
  15.        ; ControlSend, , {F5}, % "ahk_id " . myID
  16.        ; SendInput, {F5}
  17.    }
  18.    Else If myClass contains {1C03B488-D53B-4a81-97F8-754559640193} ; Safari.
  19.    {
  20.        WinActivate, % "ahk_id " . myID
  21.        WinWaitActive, % "ahk_id " . myID
  22.        SendInput, {Ctrl down}r{Ctrl up}
  23.        Sleep, 250
  24.        ; ControlSend, , {Ctrl down}r{Ctrl up}, % "ahk_id " . myID
  25.        ; ControlSend, , {F5}, % "ahk_id " . myID
  26.        ; SendInput, {F5}
  27.    }
  28. }

would it make a difference if the process performed slower?

No, it shouldn't.

i've 3 other autohotkey scripts running at the same time - could these be challenging this browser refresh script in some way?

Nope.  However, if you don't mind, I could re-write it so that each window is focused first and then dealt with.  Is this acceptable?
3174  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: refresh all open browsers automatically? on: April 29, 2010, 06:09:36 PM
i'm using vista so maybe that's the problem.

Could be...but I don't see why that would make such a huge difference in this case.

oh, one other thing - does it matter if i have lots of non browser windows open at the same time? i should have mentioned that in the first place. sorry.

No, that shouldn't matter.  The code:

1) Scans through all open processes.
2) Gets their window title and class.
3) Matches against a few lists.
4) Sends an F5 (Ctrl-R in some cases) keystroke to the parent window.

Sooo...did you have to do anything special to get it working?  Run first as administrator, perhaps?  I don't have Windows7 or a 64-bit version of anything with which to test with.
