N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: NANY 2019: TextWorx - Universal Text Manipulator
« on: January 06, 2019, 04:39 AM »
try again, please.  I uploaded a new version.
Updated to the latest release just now, and it starts up without issues and works as intended (I guess ;D)
Replacements work like a charm, very useful, especially as I'm working/developing in web browsers for a living, that don't have much smarts in text manipulation (and I sometimes accidentally switch on cAPS lOCK...), where re-typing is the usual way of fixing things.

You might want to package it a bit different before uploading to your (WP) site, there are 5 zipfiles in this TextWorx release-zip, and I had to manually select the latest to extract the files from. A single file holding only the latest application-files should suffice, IMHO.

Hm, after downloading the zip and extracting the files from inside the zip (that is the most recent zip file, though the exe seems to have the same timestamp as from the I get an errormessage after starting TextWorx.exe:

Screenshot - 5-01-2019 , 12_22_22.png

Trying it out in the forum's editor pane (while typing this message) it wouldn't convert upper/lower/title/sentence case or encase a selection, I'm not sure that's by design? (using Firefox 64.0 (64bit)). The same is the case in Notepad++ (v7.5.9, 32 bit). This is most likely caused by that error.

Or if you want a free (but online) solution:

Put another way, whenever the PC is locked I still want the video camera output displayed on the HDMI monitor.
That is not possible, by design, of Windows being locked...

It is kind of possible using specific screen managing software like DisplayFusion, but that doesn't lock windows, and seeing that the screensaver is managed by a windows group policy, it is fairly unlikely he's allowed to install that.

Very interesting NANY entry, Anand, thanks. :Thmbsup:

Hope you add some customization options, as the gray on green color scheme just isn't my taste.
Also, the more... link doesn't seem to work yet, and I'd like to see the date/time the process was started, if possible.

Well, looking at the max. number of visitors on the 25th and Cloudflare 'checking your browser' message when first accessing the site, I can only conclude the same as tuxman did, but obviously, Cloudflare is doing its job as a loadbalancer, though that might throw some 50x's in the process  :up:

You have added a location in the settings?
And I assume you didn't 'install' it in a Program Files' or other protected directory? It has to be able to write to its .ini file in the current directory.

It is not a problem you withdraw your request, but I'm a bit disappointed you have removed all text, so nobody can pick it up later or give helpful suggestions :huh:

Can't your browser' password manager fill that in for you? With Firefox, or a derivate, you get that option for free...

VStudio I do not own
You can download and install the free (as in 'free software') VS 2017 Community Edition from here so you can start experimenting. Knowing Delphi it isn't that hard, the basic (some pun intended) principles are quite the same. Do select C# as the initial development configuration.
Software you create yourself with it can be distributed freely.

N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: NANY 2019 - StringSimilarity - Release
« on: November 24, 2018, 08:15 AM »
StringSimilarity has been updated to 1.3.0, adding the ability to load text from txt files (*.txt or *.*), no file-content check!

Also, the download has been moved to my DCMembers space, link available from the first post, above.

Is a export things to dll planned?
Haven't decided on this request yet, as it's quite a bit of work for such a small feature-set :huh:
What would you want to use it for? Or would a command-line enabled version (with somewhat formatted output) suffice?

Correct. When tapping the widget, the slides open in the normal UI in the usual colors.

Creating an installer, f.e. using InnoSetup, that doesn't actually install anything, could provide you with that.

Btw, when(/how) should this AUP be shown?

I just want to make sure you aren't saying I broke something in the PBOL widget or changed its default color.
Well, the default color did change to dark (black), where it was something greyish before (don't recall the exact color though), and also the progress bars are now green where they used to be blue (AFAIR) :-[, now that you mention you might have broken something...

Android Apps / Re: Mouser Android Apps Updated 11/14/18
« on: November 14, 2018, 01:20 PM »
Well, the setting to override the 'default' font color doesn't seem to be applied. The setting itself does stick though.

« on: November 14, 2018, 01:12 PM »
How can I change the font-color of the widgets?
For PBOL it changed to smt rather dark, so now it's barely readable on my darkish-blue background image. Can't find that option in the settings...

The file format I will use is not decided yet, so I advise no one spend any time coding anything yet..
was waiting until he decided what that format might be in order to test.
And that is why I'm waiting too... :) :up:

Or put up a request to convert file.
The only reason to convert a logfile is just before putting it into something like LogStash, syslog, or another log agregator. Converting just for display is a last resort only, so no, I shouldn't need (to write) me a converter ;)

Hm, though LogFusion looks like a fine log viewer, I'm afraid it doesn't handle the json-like format that is currently output by ProcessWatcher. We'll have to wait for mouser to choose another format before LogFusion is useful in this context.

I was planning a process lister,
which will show the process names, time etc.,
as they are loaded by the os,
in a small non-focus window.

I think this should be one of the tasks of a GUI on Process Watcher logs.
Maybe you could create that kind of a GUI? (I might start it, depending on available time and motivation)

Another GUI tool/task would be for filtering/searching the log-data, and that could even be the same tool, AFAICS.

That sounds like a very solid path :Thmbsup:

NANY 2019 Entry Information

Application Name StringSimilarity
Short Description Compare 2 strings/texts giving a distance/proximity score using several algorithms
Supported OSes Windows 7 or newer (.NET 4.5 or newer required)
Web Page StringSimilarity page
Download Location StringSimilarity page
System Requirements
  • Windows 7/8/10
  • .NET 4.5 or newer
Version History
  • 2018-11-24 Added Load from (txt) file feature.
  • 2018-11-11 NANY Release. Show all algorithm results in a grid
  • 2018-10-26 (not released) Added extra algorithms, restore screen size/position and settings.
  • 2018-10-24 Initial release
Author Link to Ath's Profile page

As a response to a request by HelmutWe I searched and found an algorithm that seemed to match the request, and folded that into a C#/WinForms application.
After adding a few similar but different algorithms, also found on the internet, and re-shaping the UI a bit to handle larger texts and a results grid, the current incarnation is now available.

Used algorithms and sources:
Jaro-WinklerRonnie Overby's Jaro-Winkler
Damerau-LevenshteinWicked Shimmy's Damerau Levenshtein
F23 Sorensen-dice coefficientFeature 23's StringSimilarity.NET library
F23 Cosine similarity(see above)
F23 Jaccard index(see above)
F23 Normalized Levenshtein(see above)

Compare 2 strings/texts and calculate their similarity.

Planned Features
Allow to select 2 files and determine their similarity

Requested features
Make available as separate dll for use from other tools (undecided yet)

Initial screen:

Comparing Similarity and Simelarity

- Unzip the file to it's own directory
- Run the exe
(A settings.xml file will be created when closing the application)

Using the Application
- Enter some texts to compare
- Select desired options
- Results are updated immediately when both strings are non-empty
- Results can be sorted by clicking a column title

- Close the application
- Remove all files

Known Issues
To be reported by users, none so far...

Well, about that file-format: I was going to ask you to use real JSON, as the current content isn't quite readable using standard tools/libraries, but also seeing your remark about compact/heaps of data, I'd suggest to switch to CSV, as that's usually the most compact and usable for non-complex data like this (unless you want to put the performance/usage data inside the JSON object ofcourse...).

Continuing on the subject of including performance/usage data: Using (structured) JSON storage would require you to rewrite the entire file when updating a single performance item, so the policy of 'only appending' isn't going to work.
I've suggested (reply #3) to create a file-per-exe for the performance/usage data, and when using CSV that would be a feasible and fast solution, including append-only. It will generate a lot of files though, so a configurable log directory would be nice to have.

I might even be tempted into creating a GUI for this data, but you'd have to have the storage format finalized first.
