Do you want this in addition to, or instead of last.fm scrobbling?

Can I change the size of play, stop, etc. buttons?

No...

in 'Random' play mode, is it possible to go back to the previous track via the "previous" button? it doesn't do that on my PC..

...and no.  Pessimistic start to the day, huh?

yes, that's it - Button1 works fine.
what a nice script. credits on their way...

Ah, great.  Nice to know that Microsoft didn't change up things completely.  Thanks for the credits.

well, I wasnt sure how that was meant to be used but I set it up as a button in Dopus
"F:\Portable\ ...\OpenWiff.exe" {filepath}

That's exactly how it's supposed to be used.  =]

Thanks, daddydave.  nudone, try changing the instances of 'Button2' in my example to 'Button' or 'Button1'.  Man, I really need to get some type of Windows 7 to test with in a VM.
3258  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Space + click on file reveals "Open With" list of programs on: May 25, 2010, 04:15:06 AM
I had thought of mentioning FARR but didnt as the focus here (mine included) was on File managers.
In FARR you would have to search for the file presumably?
or could it recognise what file is selected in File Manager and work from there - that's asking a lot though I suspect smiley

I was thinking about using FARR's built-in copy-to-clipboard hotkey function.  Then again, I've never written a FARR plugin so it would definitely take some doing.

Love the name btw  ;-)

Hahaha...thanks.  I'm absolute crap at actually naming programs so I took a cue from an old friend whose name is Keith Smith.  He usually does his email/username as keef.smiff.   cheesy
3259  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Space + click on file reveals "Open With" list of programs on: May 25, 2010, 04:10:39 AM
thanks for that, skwire. unfortunately it doesn't appear to work.

Could be a Windows 7 thing since it appears to work here.  It could also be that the checkbox under Windows 7 is a different ClassNN than under Windows XP.  It's "Button2" under XP.  Are you able to tell me what it is under Windows 7?  You can use the WindowSpy utility included with a standard AHK install.

would it be simpler to just send alt+a to the dialog?

No, because that would toggle it instead of explicitly setting it to an unchecked state.
3260  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Space + click on file reveals "Open With" list of programs on: May 25, 2010, 03:35:41 AM
if you could add the feature so that "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" is automatically deselected when the dialog appears - then i'd say that will be near perfection.

I don't know of any way to do that programatically.  That being said, you could write in some more code into your hotkey that waits for the window, checks the state of that box, and sets it accordingly.  Something like this:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. F1::
  2. {
  3.    ClipSave := ClipboardAll ; Save the entire clipboard.
  4.    Clipboard := ""          ; Null out clipboard.
  5.    SendInput, ^c            ; Copy to clipboard (assumed to be a filepath).
  6.  
  7.    ; Small amount of error-handling.
  8.    ClipWait, 2            
  9.    If ( Errorlevel != 0 )
  10.    {
  11.        MsgBox, Clipboard timed out.
  12.        Return
  13.    }
  14.  
  15.    ; Call the 'Open With' dialog and pass in copied path from above.
  16.    Run, C:\tmp\OpenWiff.exe "%Clipboard%"
  17.  
  18.    ; Determine the state of the "Always use the selected program to open
  19.    ; this kind of file" checkbox and uncheck it if it's checked.
  20.    WinWaitActive, Open With
  21.    ControlGet, myState, Checked, , Button2, Open With
  22.    If ( myState = 1 )
  23.    {
  24.        Control, Uncheck, , Button2, Open With
  25.    }
  26.  
  27.    ; Restore the original clipboard and free memory.
  28.    Clipboard := ClipSave
  29.    ClipSave  := ""
  30. }

Here you go, OpenWiff (source/binary included): http://skwire.dcmembers.c.../apps/snacks/OpenWiff.zip

For a sample hotkey in AHK, you could use something like this:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. F1::
  2. {
  3.    ClipSave := ClipboardAll ; Save the entire clipboard.
  4.    Clipboard := ""          ; Null out clipboard.
  5.    SendInput, ^c            ; Copy to clipboard (assumed to be a filepath).
  6.  
  7.    ; Small amount of error-handling.
  8.    ClipWait, 2            
  9.    If ( Errorlevel != 0 )
  10.    {
  11.        MsgBox, Clipboard timed out.
  12.    }
  13.  
  14.    ; Call the 'Open With' dialog and pass in copied path from above.
  15.    Run, C:\tmp\OpenWiff.exe "%Clipboard%"
  16.  
  17.    Clipboard := ClipSave ; Restore the original clipboard.
  18.    ClipSave  := ""       ; Free memory.
  19. }

Regarding anything custom, I'm wondering if it might be well-suited as a FARR plugin.  Do you use FARR?
3263  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Space + click on file reveals "Open With" list of programs on: May 24, 2010, 10:49:57 PM
Making the default 'Open With' dialog callable as an executable is a piece of cake.  Honestly, it's one line of code.  I can't modify that 'Open With' dialog so all the custom stuff you want would entail writing something completely from scratch.
3264  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Space + click on file reveals "Open With" list of programs on: May 24, 2010, 04:44:35 PM
I'm a bit lost there - I suppose it could probably be done fairly easily with dopus - but if someone is using Explorer?

I dont see having it running all the time a problem.
- When you say "there is no one good way to get a filename/path so that's why I like to leave it up to the user (and their computer)" do you suspect it wont work for a lot of people; and / or that it would mean it very awkward to code ?

Well, that's the thing.  People use all sorts of file managers so about the only way to make this universal would be to use the clipboard.  However, some people don't like applications that screw with the clipboard so that's why I wanted to leave this open-ended and let the user handle getting the filepath to the executable.  The actual code to bring up the Open With dialog is easy:

rundll32.exe shell32.dll, OpenAs_RunDLL <filepath>

If I leave it up to the user, they can use the application is any number of applications or scripts.  If I tie it down to one specific way of getting the filepath, its usability is lessened.  Make sense?
3265  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Space + click on file reveals "Open With" list of programs on: May 24, 2010, 03:08:57 PM
This is easily done.  However, some thoughts as to how to implement it:

1) As an executable that you can pass a filename to.  The user will have to determine how to get and pass the filename.
2) As a slightly more complete application that includes a hotkey and path-getting capabilities.  For this, though, the utility will need to stay running.  Also, there is no one good way to get a filename/path so that's why I like to leave it up to the user (and their computer).

Your thoughts?

the non-performance of the native WIndows hotkey feature

I've always found the native feature kind of iffy.

Likewise.  I gave up using the native shortcut keys back under Windows 98.

3268  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Shell extension to show total play time of media clips on: May 23, 2010, 09:59:22 AM
I also need to know the path to the .wpl file itself.  Thanks.
3269  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Shell extension to show total play time of media clips on: May 22, 2010, 05:38:12 PM
The playlist file is situated in the main music directory on my C: drive together with some of the audio files

I need to know the exact structure since the .wpl file is using relative paths.  For instance:

..\Cock Robin\Unknown Album\04-Just Around The Corner-Cock Robin-unknown album.mp3

At the very least, I need to know the full path to that .wpl file as well as that file above.

The two files in that playlist from your D: drive are fully pathed so those should show up in PlayTime, at least.  Do they?
3270  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Shell extension to show total play time of media clips on: May 22, 2010, 01:27:04 PM
Where are the actual files in relation to the playlist file?
3271  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Shell extension to show total play time of media clips on: May 22, 2010, 08:45:16 AM
1) re-edited: my PlayTime cannot read .wpl!?

I'll be the first to admit that my support of .wpl files is FAR from complete.  Would you mind posting or PM'ing me that .wpl file?

2) I see PlayTime already is able of exporting as .CSV files, so I wonder how little (much) it would take to make it capable of CREATING playlists? Or is that an all different game? The PlayTime name would still be perfect...

Sure, exporting as simple .m3u file is very easy since it's just a list of filename/paths.  Would that be acceptable?
