Major Update v1.0.1.3 fixes a bug or two and ...
Major update.  Version 1.0.1.4 introduces full pie-charting for ...

I have a request for version numbering: Could 'Major updates', as mentioned above, actually be reflected in the version number? Going from 1.0.1.3 to 1.0.1.4 feels like a minor bugfix release, instead of adding new charting features as you have. I'd have gone at least from 1.0 to 1.1 for what you now call 1.0.1.4 huh

That's about a refresh-rate of 59 or 60 Hz, not MegaHz, and the rate depends on the combination of screen, it's firmware and the frequency of the power supplied to it.
1604  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor v2.95.01 won't extract on: August 01, 2011, 10:13:59 AM
when I right-click the file, I am not given the option of extracting the contents

Guess you need to use some un/zip shell extension (like 7-zip)? The default Windows un/zipper doesn't support extracting from .exe files AFAICS

I'd start at this StackOverflow thread and follow the links mentioned there.

You could just read the registry (HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnInstall\*, and insert Wow6432Node between Software and Microsoft too to get the 32 bit stuff on x64 Windows), be sure to enable 64 bit mode on 64 bit Windows tough.

If you want a nicely predefined view, get one of several SysInfo tools.

Like that your link doesn't work.
It will if you scrape off the extraneous prefix: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australasia

1611  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How to deal with syncing multiple versions of a file from multiple sources? on: July 30, 2011, 03:32:27 AM
A real pain will be to merge data from binary files like Office documents and databases. All the usual (D)VCS systems are based on merging text-like documents, such as source files of a programming language, not binary data. Some of them have extensions/plug-ins to read/compare/merge Word or pdf documents, and that's often the best you can get. For comparing/merging databases there's a whole different SW industry, (I've not investigated 'cause I don't need nor want to go there).


I/we usually do the merges we need to do with an IDE like Eclipse and/or Visual Studio and their available plug-ins (for SVN, that's our central VCS of choice), and so far there have not really been merging issues, not even with international development teams working on the same repository.

Guys!  Check this out!

It's pretty amazing.  You can essentially create a mock application quite easily.  This might be very important for me.  I always have software ideas, but not being a programmer, it's difficult for me to accurately explain my vision.  This would be awesome for that.  I'm probably going to use it for coding snack ideas...

This was one of the USP's of Delphi, back in the days. Throw together a UI working with the 'customer', add some (semi)working code, and give a nice demo.

And now MS is doing it 'all over again' with Visual Studio Lightswitch, it seems

(you could probably drop the 'early beta' IMHO cheesy)

Maybe that should have said: It's early, and it's beta, but not an early beta Grin
1616  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: [Request] Tell me who said what first! on: July 28, 2011, 03:14:12 AM
This would be a job that should IMHO be done in a full OO language like Java/JRE or C#/.NET, and it sure would take some time, but it's quite doable.

I'd be curious what the OP is going to be using it for Wink that might influence the implementation.

Hey, it's a release thumbs up (you could probably drop the 'early beta' IMHO cheesy)

Feature request:
  • Option to switch the currency used. I never see or find US$, Euro's are much more likely (hint: localization)

I added a Linux .sh script after some testing on Ubuntu linux, so here it is, a new release:

Does that include writing in English? ohmy
1620  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Release: WinButtonEdit 1.0.0.0 on: July 27, 2011, 07:26:45 AM
Since there have been no further support requests on WinButtonEdit for several weeks, I decided to make a formal release of


It's only a version-bump since the last RC10 release, but to get it requires a re-download of the zipfile at the original release post

Support questions, feature requests or remarks are, as always, welcome cheesy
1621  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / RELEASE: HTML Mail Merge: Excel2Html v2.0.1.1 on: July 27, 2011, 04:15:11 AM
+10MB is chump-change these days
It's a bit annoying to me that to deliver a < 19 kB application .jar file, a download of 15+ MB is needed tellme


I added 2 new command-line parameters to Excel2Html, so here it is, a new release:

… the 10.1 is not available (at least not in Europe).
Should be available in the UK pretty soon, so it's getting closer.  Wink
In Holland, Vodafone has the 10.1v (branded for Vodafone, but the 'fat' 10.9 mm version) available (isn't that available in all the Vodafone countries?), but the new (and thinner, 8.6 mm) 10.1 will only be available somewhere around August/September, AFAIR.
Big disadvantage of the 10.1 is it has a mere 3 mpx camera, opposed to the 10.1v 8 mpx camera. That is going to save you some storage, but cost you image quality I presume.

Now that I've solved the formula evaluation issue, as reported by bootz15 I can announce the update:


The what's new is added to the original release thread.

A full re-download is required as I had to replace one of the .jar libraries with a more extensive version ('ooxml-schemas' replacing 'poi-ooxml-schemas') but that's also ~10 MB larger ohmy

Comments, requests, remarks, etc. are all welcome Kiss
1624  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: HTML Mail Merge on: July 26, 2011, 11:49:43 AM
cell formulas aren't calculated in the the html output (only the formula definition is displayed).
It is supposed to display the result of the calculation, not the formula, with some exceptions (imposed by the POI project...) : It can not process custom/user formulas, as it doesn't know how to handle the VBA involved. And it won't until someone implements a VBA interpreter in Java ohmy
There are more restrictions on formula's as described in this Apache POI page
I tested with quite simple '=J2+J3' etc. formula's (that didn't get into the demo data, but will be in the next update) and that works just fine.

Can you give an example of a formula (and an expected result, if possible) that doesn't compute?

I did some investigation, and it seems I need to re-evaluate all formulas when reading them. That requires another library jar (ooxml-schemas instead of the much smaller poi-ooxml-schemas) so the download will increase quite a bit. I'll release v2.0.1.0 shortly after this message (v2.0.0.1 is already available with just minor changes, but I didn't have time to write the announcement).
