Also, I'll need to take some time to see how exactly WinButtons work.
Yeah, I hear you. My manual-writing capabilities haven't been fully applied on this one yet... I have a quite technical readme included with WinButtons, describing for each option available on how to use it, but not why or what-for you'd want to use it. There are some small examples in there, but the best part for your use would be in the WinButtons.wbuc file (as downloaded from the site), that I used to take the screenshot from. You need to define and use variables to 'connect' to some input-control, and use one or more variables in the command that is set for a button.
Don't forget to enable the 'Show parameters section' checkbox, that's hiding in the 'Global parameters' tab of WinButtonEdit tellme

Telnet is only installed in a x64 incarnation on Windows x64, AFAICS, and it's only available in the \Windows\System32 directory for 64 bit processes, but not in the 32 bit \Windows\SysWOW64 redirection directory for 32 bit processes.
I haven't seen any easy solutions, other than copying telnet.exe over from System32 to the SysWOW64 directory.

Another alternative would be to use different terminal software, there are several available, and you are probably using one of them already Cool, as telnet is quite 'rudimentary' in features and looks.

that assume you are using a single monitor setup
I'm still using the dual-monitor (from a single video card, NVidia GeForce GTS 250) setup I've been using ever you so generously sent me the MIMO. I updated to the latest DisplayLink drivers, a few weeks ago (and also a few months ago, with the previous major update). The initial flashing during/after boot is still there, but it works as expected, and flawlessly fwiw.
I recall your issues are caused by the dual-videocard setup, that isn't properly understood by the DisplayLink drivers, as they are in fact an alternative to a multi-videocard setup.
There are even a few standard-size monitors (22"/27", Full HD) that are just USB connected (and using DisplayLink technology).(Philips, Samsung), but these aren't in the league you require for your graphics work embarassed

I'm glad to see that you are still working on WinButtons
This was triggered by a feature request/coding snack, but it was fun to be pounding on the code again, after a year of silence (though I did a lot of other type & languages programming in the meantime) cheesy
I've been trying, a few times already, to re-do WinButtons in .NET/WPF, just to get acquainted with WPF, but I've not found the motivation to complete that yet, and there are a lot of bears on the road. Some things that are easy function-calls in AutoIt3, are quite daunting tasks in plain .NET C# code huh

I've released WinButtons 3.6.0 and WinButtonEdit 1.1.0 in this message, click through to the release message for a couple of screenshots, and the official downloadlink.
506  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: October 09, 2012, 05:31:55 PM
After a year of silence in the development department of WinButtons, now there is another release for both WinButtons and WinButtonEdit.

A Coding Snack request by ConstanceJill in this thread prompted me to suggest WinButtons as a solution, but it was missing the feature of parameter entry.
That is now solved tellme
And WinButtonEdit is also updated to support these new features of WinButtons.

Some screenshots are added to the release message.

Here's an update release of:
and

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

Updates can be downloaded also from the WinButtonEdit File/Check for updates option, using DCUpdater when installed.

A ToDo for a QuickEdit feature is noted but not available yet, that'll be the next thing I'll work on.

Any feedback or feature requests are still welcome, as usual smiley

Hm, WinButtons can do both the prompt and custom captions already...

I'm working on the readme and close to a release of WinButtons 3.6.0 (and a matching WinButtonEdit), not sure if I can make it tonight though, if not then tomorrow night. (I'm in the CET timezone)
508  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: FindFocus on: October 08, 2012, 03:05:35 PM
- Mozilla Firefox.
Firefox is known to have 'un-fixed' it's Windows presentation ever since version 5. A lot of tools that manipulate application windows in some way are unable to work with Firefox since that version. Probably the Skrommel tools, built back in the Windows XP and (start of) Vista era, can't cope with these issues.

For most of Skrommel's tools the source is available, you could adjust it to your needs, but seeing that hardly anybody has done this previously, there hasn't been much need for it...
509  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: FindFocus on: October 08, 2012, 01:16:05 PM
2 questions:
- What browser?

- Why are you resurrecting all these old, old, old, threads? Skrommel has left the building some years ago.

Ja Dutch. Wonderful.
Sorry, as I said, haven't worked on it (or used it...) for ~10 years tellme

Right-click a button, choose 'Algemene instellingen...', in the first combobox select English and press the OK button.

For teasers, here's a screenshot:

[attachthumb=1]

A few notes:
- 7 types of input controls:
  - Textbox with history
  - Textbox no history
  - Combobox
  - Combobox with edit & history
  - Combobox with edit, no history
  - Checkbox with history
  - Checkbox no history
- All parameters are connected to a Variable, as can be configured using WinButtonEdit, and the variable is to be used like :varVarName: in the command defined.
- Checkboxes can be easily mapped to a checked/unchecked value
513  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Program restarts, hibernations and shut downs software on: October 06, 2012, 07:05:34 AM
In the Windows 2000 era I've created a tool called BootSwitch, to switch between entries in boot.ini, but after Windows XP it was useless, because of the new boot-config database introduced in Windows Vista.

I've attached a zip with an installer for that tool.
- Created by me using Delphi 5 (AFAIR)
- No crapware added
- No guarantees (haven't touched it in over 10 years!)

Only reason to use 64 bit Office is if you need the extra memory capacity, and the only part of MS Office capable of using that, afaik, is Excel.
This is related info: http://blogs.technet.com/...anding-64-bit-office.aspx Aha, also Project knows how to use the memory.
And this too: http://office.microsoft.c...f-office-HA010369476.aspx

I'm working on an extension to WinButtons, but I have limited time available.
I've got parameter entry and tooltip updating working, but the confirmation prompt and quick add/edit of a button need to be added

517  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: My experiences with Screenshot Captor on: October 04, 2012, 05:34:52 AM
Was that a standard Command Prompt window or a different command processor, like 4Dos and it's cousins? And with or w/o Administrator privileges?

A command prompt window with Administrator privileges (start-->run-->cmd)
Hm, that's indeed a bit of a pita to capture. Haven't got time to try several options atm, but likely later today I'll check, unless mouser chimes in with a video or tutorial smiley
518  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: My experiences with Screenshot Captor on: October 04, 2012, 01:44:59 AM
(it was a dos window: SC captured it 2 times and placed them (as looking in a vertical mirror) side by side)

What would you be using this for?
523  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Single click focus, double click bring to front on: October 01, 2012, 05:12:58 PM
For what purpose do you want the Window to get focus? Mouse-wheel scrolling ?
524  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Search Result Context Menu Item and Underlining on: October 01, 2012, 05:02:49 AM
Isn't that directly related to the feature of not underlining the menu-trigger letters by default? Unless that menu is triggered by a keyboard event, that is, and it can be set to always show, but with quite different procedures depending in the Windows version (XP, 7).
525  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: sort of launcher for command lines with parameter in a pre-defined place on: September 29, 2012, 09:26:00 AM
Hm, it's not too difficult to add these features to WinButtons.
I'll use the variables it already supports, adding some options there, to show a parameter window-section like you sketched.
I can create a Quick button editor, with just the most standard fields, and the Confirmation option isn't that much work too.
