I think this is what you meant, right?
@skwire
I never saw that requested, was that a PM to you? I was a bit surprised you added it without 'us' seeing a request, but that doesn't mean it wasn't asked Grin

The only problem I have is working out how to set it?
The transparency is part/attribute of the image, if it's not there (yet), use an image editor to put it in. Paint.NET, Gimp or any decent image editor could be used to do that.

I think I clicked on Info, thus revealing the 2nd page, but didn't think I had to scroll down to see the rest. So it's the mix of click and scroll that confused me, I guess.
You're not alone... huh cheesy

If you are as productive as you've been the last couple of weeks (months) it's these 'tricks' that keeps your productivity on par thumbs up

I moved to FF5, despite not-yet-ported plugins, because there's a config setting to ignore the version 5 check:

  • type "about:config" in the address bar
  • Right-Click/New/Boolean
  • Enter name: "extensions.checkCompatibility.5.0"
  • Select "False"
  • Restart Firefox
(All values to be typed without the quotes shown)
Now the Addons page in FF gives a warning that this 'compatibility setting is enabled, and would you like to disable that' (ignore ofcourse Wink) but all FF4 plugins that didn't work at first now work, except for the Skype plugin I got (but forgot to disable) when installing Skype.

The equivalent setting seems to exist for FF4, and is still usable in FF5

Oh, my first impressions after just a few hours of use:
- More stable page construction (less moving of controls and page-expanding for a few pixels once the page is rendered)
- Finer quality of graphics display
- A tad quicker on most things, and much quicker on page-refresh (F5) for most sites
- Some plugins are getting a quick update because they are in fact already compatible Wink

just my  two cents

How to send keystrokes first to original program (to call the popup) and then to the newly popup-ed window.
I took this as a feature request, and added this to WinSendKeys.
It is now possible to specify a few commands in a strokesfile, --window, --exec and --delay, to switch Window/Exe (-w and -x/-xp parameter equivalents) or introduce a delay of some milliseconds. The details are in the readme file, that's just like the source and a compiled exe, included with the download.
I also introduced the -v parameter to enable %environment.var% and @macro@ expansion on keystrokes (default off to avoid compatibility issues). This variable-expansion is now always applied to the -x and -xp commandline-parameters.

So, without much fanfare, but still proud, I announce: WinSendKeys 3.1.0

If you might find any strange issues, or have a feature request or two, please don't hesitate to respond in this thread.

The original download zip-file has been updated, so now I can officially announce:

WinSendKeys 3.0.5 Download from the first message in this thread

What's new:
  • Disabled left-over debug-messagebox embarassed (thanks jOc for reporting that)

How to send keystrokes first to original program (to call the popup) and then to the newly popup-ed window. Does it have to be command line batch?
That specific use-case wasn't asked for before, but WSK (WinSendKeys) supports only 1 target at the moment. You could run two WSK command-lines using a batch though, like you suggested.

I tried the example WinSendKeys.stro as per the example in that file (with the Scite editor already loaded) and it worked as expected:
[copy or print]
WinSendKeys -f WinSendKeys.stro scite

A space (or more) between -f and the filename is mandatory!

How do I make file mode (-f) work. Is this text file? What should be in it?
Like you say, it's a textfile that contains the same keystrokes you can use on the commandline. For each new-line there's the same delay as there is between separated keystrokes. You can even use the ## and #% 'MouseStrokes' and #$ 'ClipboardStrokes' if you like.

Oops, my bad, just checked the source and saw a left-over MsgBox at line 206.

Fixed, please use the attachment to this message, I'll update official download tonight., original download updated.

Can you show your WinSendKeys.ini file, please? (wrap it in a [ code=ini] tag, without the extra space, please)

BTW, when I choose File->New, I see a preview that shows a button labelled "Test button".  I don't suppose it's easy to have no button displayed, but still with some sort of blank preview...
Yeah, at first I couldn't get it to behave with no buttons available, but I guess I should go for an empty (no buttons) window, instead of a non-functional button. I'll see what goes best.

I'll see if I can defer a final decision by breaking something else in WB Wink

Both of you, thanks for the heads up thumbs up

1592  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Release: (Update) GUI Editor for WinButtons: WinButtonEdit 0.9.1.1 (RC8) on: June 20, 2011, 04:54:21 PM

1593  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Compressing Outlook-Datafiles (PST) for free without Outlook? on: June 20, 2011, 02:38:12 PM
If you shut down Outlook, copy the pst file(s) to an USB stick/drive, burn on DVD or copy over the network to some transportable medium, take them home with you and compress them on your home-PC (using a local copy of outlook), then take em back in the opposite direction. Wouldn't that work for you?
1594  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Open images without program window showing. on: June 20, 2011, 04:25:42 AM
Hm, could it be that it's running on a different desktop? So not on the foreground user's desktop, but on a background Administrator desktop? You could try to run it as the foreground user (Run as field) and see if that helps.
1595  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Open images without program window showing. on: June 20, 2011, 04:21:41 AM
I tried your idea on my Netbook yesterday and it would not work, in fact I could not get the batch file to run either.
These are the windows I got when I tried:

IMHO, the full path to the Frameless.exe (with quotes if it has spaces) and the full path to the image (again with quotes if the path contains spaces), the screenposition and the timeout value should go in the Run field in your last screenshot, just like you had them in the batchfile. You could optionally set the Start in field, but that should not be needed for it to work.

If the batchfile won't even work, I'd first check if your paths are correct. Oh, and you should probably not run the exe form a network (UNC) path, it's not forbidden or impossible, but it could cause (security) issues or even prevent frameless to be started.
1596  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Release: (Update) GUI Editor for WinButtons: WinButtonEdit 0.9.1 (RC7) on: June 19, 2011, 01:24:08 PM

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. ; 2011-06-19, v0.9.1.0 (RC7)

They are both there
It's a bit hidden, sorry for any confusion:
[attachthumb=#]
My original goal was to have it automagically attach the correct extension, but the standard Save As... dialog doesn't seem to do that Sad
If a filename is typed without an extension, the .wbuc extension is automatically added.

And apologies for the Dutch screen, I only have a Dutch XP virtual available. embarassed
1598  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: June 19, 2011, 07:11:24 AM
Ah, btw, choosing File -> New and then pressing the Cancel button leads to the file dialog appearing again here...I get a feeling of Deja Vu.
That's on purpose, you have to choose a filename (sorry for the fuss, though).
I think I'll re-do this option a bit for the next release.
It now asks to save the just created empty buttonset to a file, but I probably should ask the new filename first, and on cancel do nothing, not even clear the buttonset in memory. That sounds more as it would be expected, in UX terms.
1599  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: June 19, 2011, 07:04:16 AM
don't have both *.wbuc and *.ini for their value in "Save as type"?  For example, "New" and "Save as..." both lead to one where the value is only *.wbuc...
They are both there (that's the same dialog, btw), but I seem to remember having naming-issues when both specs where there in the same selection. I'll retest that. Maybe I should add *.* to that dialog too?

Ah, btw, choosing File -> New and then pressing the Cancel button leads to the file dialog appearing again here...I get a feeling of Deja Vu.

by dropping any of the other appropriate *.ini files on to the treeview -- the result was no change in the treeview.
Ah, re-tested and confirmed as a bug (a round brace a few characters too far to the left Sad). Fixed in the next release.
1600  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: June 19, 2011, 04:01:32 AM
If .wbuc is now the preferred file extension, do you think it would make sense for the default WinButtons.ini to be renamed to use the new file extension?
I didn't do that on purpose, as users would be surprised to see the original WinButtons configuration where they may have created a personal one with the old filename, and the .wbuc file gets preference...

Quote from: Ath
WBE supports Drag&Drop, configurable for either a single file or multiple files into multiple (new) WBE sessions (details in the readme)
This works for me sometimes.  My current guess is that it works for .wbuc files but not .ini files.
It should work equally well for both .wbuc and .ini files (these are the only supported extensions, ATM). One peculiarity you could see is that if the current WBE instance has a file opened that is in the set of files dropped. That already open file is kinda ignored, but left open in the original WBE instance. If multiple drop files is enabled and more are dropped, the extra files should open in new WBE instances. If multiple drop files is disabled, nothing might happen when multiple files are dropped that include the file already open in WBE.

Do you think this "drop on to .exe" feature is a possibility?
I'd have to figure out how to do that, I'm not familiar with that feature (aka: I never open files that way myself). If the file association is set to open with WBE, a double click would suffice smiley
If preferred I could add 'Edit with WinButtonEdit' to the context menu in Explorer? (And change 'Open' to 'Open with WinButtonEdit')
