3251  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.

v1.1.9 - 2010-05-23
    + Added up/down toolbar buttons to move a contiguous selection up/down through the list.
    + Pressing Enter will now play the selected file.
    + Added a "Save selected rows to playlist" option (.m3u only).  (Thanks, Curt)
    ! Fixed a .wpl playlist parsing issue.  (Thanks, Curt)

I also need to know the path to the .wpl file itself.  Thanks.
3255  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?
3256  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?
3257  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?

Put a volume let's say on 11, then open minibar and it shows pre-set volume level at around 70 or so. They should be synchronized to show same volume from the start.
v1.0.4 build 29 - 2010-05-11
    ! Minibars didn't start with their volume sliders synched to Trout's main window.  (Thanks, panzer)


Thanks for the bug report.

If you move Trout minibar around, what is that object that shows up near the fish icon and starts moving when you move your mouse?

The tooltip, perhaps?  If so, it displays the currently playing track using the Titlebar formatting string.

I could see something like a mini-virtual machine system where every app runs in its own "light" vm

If you haven't looked at it before, Altiris' Software Virtualization Solution (SVS) software is eerily close to what you're describing above.

  1. Run, c:\path\to\my.exe, , , myPID ; myPID will have the started process' ID.

You can then try the ControlSend command for sending keys to a particular process.  Controlling a web browser in this manner can be an exercise in frustration, however.

You can get the code for the Penumbra Collection while installing Penumbra: Overture. There is also a text file installed by the game containing the code.

Ah, thanks.  I haven't installed them just yet.  =]
3267  Other Software / DC Gamer Club / Re: Humble Indie Bundle (pay what you want sale) on: May 09, 2010, 04:34:39 AM
btw, the developers of Penumbra are having an additional promo by selling the whole collection for only $5! after you've donated to the Humble Indie Bundle, you can get a coupon that slashes the price by $15.

I didn't see anywhere that provided a coupon code...anybody care to clue me in?  Thanks.

Can someone think of a way to get more specific information in any or all of these cases? (Probably to be displayed in the info window as an additional line.)

What sort of specific information are you wanting?  Let us know and I'm sure we can come up with something or, at the very least, let you know that we can't.

I won't have time until after this weekend (playing in another hockey tournament) so, if nobody else picks this up by then, I'll do it.
3270  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Need ADH Advice on: May 07, 2010, 06:29:27 PM
How should I do it?

You had the right idea...just use the Gui, Show line.

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. ; Use...
  2. Gui, Show, % "x " . x . " y " . y, Kruskal ; I prefer this method which uses a forced expression.
  3. ; Or...
  4. Gui, Show, x%x% y%y%, Kruskal ; When you're first learning AHK, this method probably seems easier.

Start taskschd.msc and create your tasks with the system. There´s all you need and it´s really simple.

The original poster has already mentioned that he doesn't want to use the built-in Windows Task Scheduler.  Target, you seem interested in this one...you want to take it?
3272  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: run programs first of the month on: May 07, 2010, 05:31:18 AM
Running in the background would be ok if the footprint was small enough.

A typical basic AHK script uses between two and five megs of RAM...

yes, they are what i saw - and became no less confused after reading them. i will try to understand it, maybe it's very simple.

It is rather simple since Serenity wrapped the functions nicely.  Simply add the following function definitions to the BOTTOM of your script:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. RestoreCursors()
  2. {
  3.   SPI_SETCURSORS := 0x57
  4.   DllCall( "SystemParametersInfo", UInt,SPI_SETCURSORS, UInt,0, UInt,0, UInt,0 )
  5. }
  6.  
  7. SetSystemCursor( Cursor = "", cx = 0, cy = 0 )
  8. {
  9.   BlankCursor := 0, SystemCursor := 0, FileCursor := 0 ; init

  19.      BlankCursor = 1 ; flag for later
  20.   }
  21.   Else If SubStr( Cursor,1,4 ) = "IDC_" ; load system cursor

  44.         uType := 0x1  
  45.      Else If Ext in cur,ani

  62.      {
  63.         If BlankCursor = 1
  64.         {
  65.            Type = BlankCursor
  66.            %Type%%A_Index% := DllCall( "CreateCursor"
  67.            , Uint,0, Int,0, Int,0, Int,32, Int,32, Uint,&AndMask, Uint,&XorMask )
  68.            CursorHandle := DllCall( "CopyImage", Uint,%Type%%A_Index%, Uint,0x2, Int,0, Int,0, Int,0 )
  69.            DllCall( "SetSystemCursor", Uint,CursorHandle, Int,SubStr( A_Loopfield, 1, 5 ) )
  70.         }        
  71.         Else If SystemCursor = 1
  72.         {
  73.            Type = SystemCursor
  74.            CursorHandle := DllCall( "LoadCursor", Uint,0, Int,CursorID )  
  75.            %Type%%A_Index% := DllCall( "CopyImage"
  76.            , Uint,CursorHandle, Uint,0x2, Int,cx, Int,cy, Uint,0 )      
  77.            CursorHandle := DllCall( "CopyImage", Uint,%Type%%A_Index%, Uint,0x2, Int,0, Int,0, Int,0 )
  78.            DllCall( "SetSystemCursor", Uint,CursorHandle, Int,SubStr( A_Loopfield, 1, 5 ) )
  79.         }

  86.         }        
  87.      }
  88.   }  
  89. }

Then, to change the cursor, do the following:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. Cursor := "C:\path\to\my\cursor.cur"
  2. SetSystemCursor( Cursor )

Or:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. SetSystemCursor( "C:\path\to\my\cursor.cur" )

To restore the cursor, simply do:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. RestoreCursors()

Try this:  http://skwire.dcmembers.c...m/apps/snacks/Kruskal.zip

It's very basic right now but things could be easily added to it.  It's set to kill any existing instance but this can easily be changed to allow multiple instances.
3275  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Need ADH Advice on: May 07, 2010, 01:02:35 AM
If I knew how to do it it would be great. Even better than what I am used to -- closing a window is more natural that hotkeying a second time.

I'd be more than happy to write this up for you.  Give me a few minutes.
