I love the simplicity. While reluctant to add any hint of complexity to an elegant app - how about the ability to add a short note to an entry?

By that, do you mean an extra column?

@2muchacid, @TUTRider: Welcome to DonationCoder.   cheesy

The author of this program, scancode, hasn't been very active lately so I'm not sure if you're going to see a timely response from him.  We're going to try to contact him off-forum.  However, if he doesn't reply, and based on this app's popularity, I can see about rewriting the application myself.

mounted Acronis backup

Ahhh...that's key.  I've never used this product myself but I have heard the stories over the years of how it works for some folks and not at all for others.  It seems very finicky.  Knowing this, and knowing what sort of low-level file system drivers are at play, I wouldn't be surprised if your rebooting is due to a bad Acronis-related file system driver causing a blue screen.  That's my guess anyway.
58  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Copy massive folder/file directory.... on: June 23, 2014, 12:03:12 AM
All this computer-rebooting has me thinking that something is wrong with the computer or, at the very least, with the drives you're messing with.

Have you tried to determine what is causing the computer to reboot?  Is this one of those cases where a blue screen is causing an automatic reboot?  If so, that "feature" can be turned off so the blue screen stays there, possibly enabling you to get some clues as to why this is rebooting.

This has made me acutely aware that support for large fonts is really inconsistent in a lot of software.

Hear hear.  As a programmer, I (and mouser) can attest to this.  In most cases, it's a pain in the ass, programmatically, to deal with.

The second half of the Germany/Ghana game was great and I'm sure neither side is happy with the draw.  However, the upset of the day (tourney?) would have been Iran drawing with Argentina had Messi not saved Argentina's collective asses in the 91st minute.  Neither of those two teams is among my favs so I tend to root for the underdogs in those situations.  I was really hoping that Iran could have pulled it off just to witness Argentina's reaction.

63  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: IDEA: RAR Plugin for Pismo File Mount Audit Package on: June 18, 2014, 07:12:45 PM
I read into it a lot more than that:

1) Not very feasible (in both a practical and techincal sense).
2) Knowing what I know of the RAR license, this wouldn't be free to develop and rather restrictive.
3) Something like this is well beyond a coding snack.

Slick clone!  Suggestions:

  • Focus the edit field when switching to a different note.
  • Hide to tray icon.
  • Hotkey for hiding/showing main window.

Nice work, Chris.

I'm curious if this happens in IE7, 8 or 11 as well (I currently only have access to IE5.5, 6, 9 and 10).

It does NOT happen for me using IE 11.0.9600.17126 under W7/64 Ultimate.

Again, IMHO, the only value tabs would have in this nicely simple application would be if you could load the checklists in separate tabs.

The original design actually started out this way (with ten tabs).

(I suspect you used the tab control to not have to create a gui window for the options....)

You are correct.   smiley
69  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 12, 2014, 12:00:17 PM
Uh, Jody, I found out something else to do.

Somehow I managed to freeze the entire program - it seems to have had something to do with resizing.  I had to end process on it.
Problem is that before that, I had renamed a checklist, so when I restarted the application, my list was lost.
But I saw my old list - or part of it - in the checklists folder, and I edited checklist.dat to point to the newly-named one.
That went well, except that I lost the last 7 entries I made.

With that in mind, I think that sChecklist ought to save it's list after an edit is made in the list.  I'm not sure how often it saves, but it doesn't seem to save after an edit is made, or at least when the application loses focus.  I don't think there is any need for a "save" feature.

Funny you mention that since I was working on this very issue last night.  I've tried a few things in the latest version that will, hopefully, improve things.

Another thing to add is a way to import a list - perhaps drag-n-drop would be sufficient.  It could take the filename (without extension) as the automated name for the checklist.

I'll consider this.

Finally, is there any way to have or not have the lines in the checklists list?

Covered in the latest build.

v1.0.3 - 2014-06-12
    * Improvements to the save logic (crossing fingers).
    * Included the Checklists list in the "show gridlines" option.
      (Thanks, BGM).
70  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 11, 2014, 11:34:05 PM
HI, Jody, I *like* this!  I have tried dozens of todo applications.  This is so simple I might use it!

Good to hear.  I'm trying to strike a balance between nothing and a full-blown todo/task application.

I think it needs an option for displaying a particular checklist on startup - or at least the first checklist if none is specified.

Agreed.  I'll probably add an option that would display the last selected list on startup.

I think also, if you check all the items in a list, something should happen - something like, the name of the checklist becomes grayed.

I'll consider this (added to my ToDo list for this application).

And there should be an option to hide the status bar - I'm not sure it does anything anyway.

Currently it doesn't do anything but I do have plans to add at least a checked/unchecked count and percentage.  However, one side benefit to even a do-nothing statusbar is that it adds a much larger resizing grip to the bottom right corner, making it much easier to resize the app.

I made up 5 variants, I have set up a poll and I would like you to state which one of the 5 suits you best.

Welcome, pax.  As far as the poll options go, I don't like any of them.  You have to find a way to break them up via tabs (as mouser suggests) or, if you're intent on keeping them on the same form, at least use groupbox controls to group related items.
73  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 08, 2014, 07:15:22 PM
1) "Export to txt" (although user can manually open the .checklist file in notepad) and "Export to pdf"
2) Indented / grouped tasks, e.g.:

Export to text file is added to the latest build; see below.  In regards to indented tasks, there are other, fancier task-oriented apps out that do that already, so I feel it's somewhat out of scope for this app.

Very nice and elegant.  thumbs up

Thanks, mouser.  =]

A print option would also be nice to have.

This isn't easy to do in AHK but I'll add it to the list.

v1.0.1 - 2014-06-07
    + Added "Close button minimizes" option.  Note that the this new
      option is mutually exclusive of the "Close to tray" option.
      (Thanks, rgdot)
    + Added alpha, numeric, and random sort options to the toolbar.
    + Added Up/Down buttons to the toolbar to move a selection.  The
      Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down hotkeys handle this, too.
    + Added "Export list to text file" option.  (Thanks, Attronarch)
74  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 08, 2014, 12:38:23 AM
BTW, Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down currently moves a highlighted selection up and down through the list.  I'll add corresponding toolbar buttons as well.
75  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: June 08, 2014, 12:33:13 AM
Use delete key when some/all items of a list are selected?

Shift+Delete currently handles that.
