Oh, and @Ath, I shan't be sending one to you  Grin
That's kind of a disappointment, but I'll survive Grin


I'm sure ath will get it working great once he starts playing with a setup similar to yours Wink
I'm working on making the currently fixed buffer a bit more flexible, I'll probably release the update later this week.

Another confirmation, Win7 x64 with default Aero theme.

It duplicates just below the last thing that is visible, I had 333 as the last line visible from the first page (red arrow), and that got duplicated, and it shifted 666 and 777 out of view at the blue arrow. Case of +/-1 perhaps?

but does it support "menus"? Drawer-line collections of buttons, for example.

Please have a look at the first screenshot in the WinButtons release-thread, it's showing a 3-level menu, and the 2nd screenshot shows a 2-level menu. It's simply a secondary instance of WB, positioned relative to the button that started it. It needs either <Esc> pressed or a dedicated button that closes that single instance (or the border displayed, with the default Windows close button), so that might need some improvement in implementation. Feature requests are welcome, ofcourse  smiley

Ehm, do you want the e-mail, or is an Outlook Task also an option? In that case, NANY 2011 entry TaskDaddy should be on your list thumbs up

This makes me a happy person with a warm feeling inside today (and some more days this week) Kiss and that's just because you are so happy with the result cheesy

It's looking great, though touch-screen placement does indeed need some tweaking smiley
1581  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: GUI automation on: September 04, 2011, 05:45:32 AM
I need to record macros to programs that have GUI elements/controls, that do not have classnn, or other distinguishable characteristics.
Eventually, most applications have them, but they can hide it in certain situations. When building WinSendKeys I had a bit similar issues, and reverted to doing other-control-relative mouse-clicks, usually it's toolbarbuttons that don't have these classnames/classnn, but the toolbar or it's surrounding windows has, and the toolbar is often in a fixed location.

Can you give examples of applications that hide (most) controls like this? I know Firefox 4.0 and later has issues in this arena, and some apps created using C++Builder 6 have the issues with the toolbars, mentioned above, but I haven't found much other applications with this behavior.

Very impressive indeed Thmbsup

I'll be testing this soon.
1583  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: September 04, 2011, 05:03:26 AM
@nudone, I'm glad you are getting the hang of it already thumbs up
I was out for a party, yesterday, so I didn't get to see your messages until now.

The Ctrl-N keystroke could also have been specified using {ctrl}n (without spaces), but that's just a minor detail, and some applications can need the keystrokes to be sent a bit slower, as will happen if you send {ctrldown} n {ctrlup} using WinSendKeys.

One thing I've just noticed is that it takes a while to redraw the buttons as they flick between the Groups. I've got 40 buttons on display in each group; is this pushing WinButtons to its limits?
I haven't tried WinButtons with that number of buttons yet, I usually work with 10 to 12 buttons, but as I have quite fast PC's atm, I don't notice any slowness. I'll have to try on a less capable system, but I'm not sure I have much tuning options there, while using plain AutoIt3 code.

The main event-loop is triggered every 100 msec, maybe it would help if you tune that to say 50 or 60 msec, so the response on changing application focus is somewhat more snappy. Setting it lower than 20 msec is going to get you into performance trouble, I guess, as the processing during each loop does need some time.
This value needs to be changed in the source directly (WinButtons.au3, find the line with 'Sleep(100)' and change it accordingly, then run the au3 file or recompile using AutoIt3), I'll probably add a setting for that to a next release of WinButtons/WBE.

It is a very nice looking device.
I think that sums it up for both the iPad and the iPhone. Grin

I've been carrying an Android for over a year now, and my employer gave me an iPhone 4 about 2 months ago, and being the technocrat I am, the Android is and will be my best friend smartphone for some time to come Cool

doing all that stuff she usually gets me to do
Lovely story app cheesy
1585  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Ultimate touchscreen control via iPad remote software - I'm excited on: September 02, 2011, 03:23:48 PM
I just released WinButtons 3.4.0 and WinButtonEdit 1.0.1.1 from the WinButtons release message.

A new feature CursorRestore is introduced.

Any feedback is welcome smiley
1586  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Release: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands: WinButtons 3.4.0 on: September 02, 2011, 03:20:38 PM
I added a new feature to WinButtons: CursorRestore, on a request from nudone in this thread.
When enabled, the cursor is restored to it's last know position, outside of the WinButtons window. To be used if WinButtons is positioned on a (external) touch-screen.


Next to supporting the new CursorRestore option, WinButtonsEdit also displays the current (Top, Left) position of the preview window (if enabled), and has a menu-option to copy those coordinates to the Global Top and Left fields, so the preview can be dragged to the desired position, and used as startup coordinates for WinButtons.


Download available from the release message, linking to my DCMembers pages.

It really needs real-world testing, but any feedback is welcome smiley

Hmmm, not good.

I'll try to fix that ASAP, as said before, I've been thinking of a possible solution, just have to implement it Cool
1588  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Ultimate touchscreen control via iPad remote software - I'm excited on: September 01, 2011, 01:15:31 AM
I have some (minor) changes planned for WinButtons, regarding mouse movement/placement, but haven't started that yet. Planned for later this week or the weekend.

The screen is looking really nice, IMHO Kiss
1589  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Follow-up on Auto-Capture thread begun by someone else on: August 30, 2011, 05:30:16 PM
Problem with the %Y part.

Resulting file name is:  %Y-08-30 15_46_42.png

Just tried that, and can confirm it. But leaving out (only) the % before the Y (...$dt:Y-%m...) gives the current year in 4 digits. It's probably a parsing or parser-state error huh

Good grief.  An extra e.  My bad.
Looking at the MiniCap page, I also see the triple e version of -capturescreeen embarassed

1591  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: (Request) Simulate keystrokes to scalable BPM on: August 30, 2011, 01:51:05 AM
Would it be something to add to WinSendKeys ? That comes with AutoIt source, so you could take a stab at it yourself Wink
1592  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Centurylink is on CracK on: August 29, 2011, 05:28:07 AM
It's called 'un-skilled servicedesk' for a reason Wink
1593  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Centurylink is on CracK on: August 28, 2011, 02:39:17 PM
You frightened me with this story, Stoic ohmy

Glad it got solved, but isn't this one of those reasons to switch to another ISP, with real technicians in the office, who actually know what they are doing? If even the field techs are acting like this to their 'colleagues', there's not much hope for the rest of that company Sad

Have a nice trip. You'll be missed here at DC, so hopefully we'll survive the week without you tellme
1595  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: In search of alternative wifi management software on: August 27, 2011, 11:41:44 AM

It's 'limited' to WPA2 protection, so not usable in the scenario for nite_monkey, as he requires WEP protected WiFi at most. Unless he can build his private version of it, downgrading the protection to WEP.
1596  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Ultimate touchscreen control via iPad remote software - I'm excited on: August 27, 2011, 09:08:50 AM
+1 Now that is motivating Thmbsup Kiss
1597  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: In search of ... external video support on: August 27, 2011, 08:33:36 AM
For that kind of money I'd get ViDock 3 or 4 I guess, that holds a 'real' video card, giving a real performance-boost, and can be upgraded if needed.
1598  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: a light notetaker/word processor that autohides to the side of the screen on: August 27, 2011, 08:29:07 AM
I have NotesHolder by A!K Research Labs installed, as suggested in another thread on DC
1599  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Ultimate touchscreen control via iPad remote software - I'm excited on: August 27, 2011, 08:19:04 AM
@nudone, I'll support WinButtons for as long as it seems feasible, meaning I'll (try to) solve any issue you may have Cool



I have a Wacom PenPartner2 that I 'inherited' when I got my wife a (proper) Bamboo drawing tablet, but I hardly use it, as I don't do any graphics stuff, most coding and 'investigating' (aka web-browsing)
That PenPartner is so totally un-fit for WinButtons (combined with a 1920x1200 monitor), I've actually been thinking about getting a real touch-screen, but (tmp lack of) financial means have stopped me so far huh
1600  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: In search of ... external video support on: August 27, 2011, 07:27:16 AM
Would this be of help?

And as it doesn't support a proper docking station, maybe a USB dock like this Targus (as offered by Dell) with an extra DVI port could help?
Most likely the performance is not up to par with the expectations or requirements, so the ViDock combined with a multi-monitor card (advice: choose a (mini)DisplayPort model, so a lot of monitors can be connected) could be a better solution.


OTOH, if you need much better graphics power then available in a laptop, you could have bought a more than decent desktop that allows for multiple graphics adapters with multi-monitor capabilities huh.
