Armando, see if you maybe have that option above set in the radio box "Hide When Focus Is Lost" -- that can cause some odd behavior.

Thanks !
It doesn't seem to change anything here.

Here are my settings :

FWIW, here, toggling

  Options
    Window Options
      Focus Preservation
        Hide When Focus Is Lost

seems to toggle the new Control+Enter behavior here -- if any of the other radio buttons are set, the new behavior appears to be in effect.

Thanks ewemoa.
Doesn't seem to apply in my case. Unless I'm misunderstanding your explanations... Which entirely possible.

@ewemoa : That's very nice of you. Thanks. It still doesn't work though; some other setting is probably conflicting... Unfortunately I  don't have enough time to debug this at the moment. Maybe next weekend.

@mouser : I saw that ctrl+shift+arrow(L/R) for quick selection in farr is still no selecting anything. Can we expect a "fix" soon ?   smiley  (I'm calling this a "fix" as it used to work a few versions ago)

  • [Feature] Pressing Ctrl while you hit Enter will now launch the selected (or first if in search box) item AND keep the FARR window open.
This doesn't seem to work here. Is the option to be found somewhere and I missed it ?
"Close window after launch by defaut " is checked, but... I thought that maybe the point of the Ctrl+Enter feature was to circumstantially circumvent the default closing... Am I wrong in that assumption?  smiley[/list]

Thanks mouser !
I don't know if you missed it, but I don't think that only MSE affects farr's performance. Avast seems to cause similar problems : http://www.donationcoder....29756.msg279427#msg279427

Don't know about other antivirus.

Maybe you should add a few words concerning that possibility... something like :

Quote
It has been confirmed that Microsoft Security Essentials antivirus (and possibly other antivirus and HIPS) can slow down FARR searching (and result in delays/pauses during searching).

The fix is to exclude FARR's process from MSE (or other antivirus) scans.

For more info and instructions see:

Interesting. I just installed it but am having problems with various scripts. Will revert to the plain AHK for now and will check later.
you can use script with vanilla AHK, just remove/comment the references to the incremental resizing part. check out the PM i sent.

Thanks for the example! Yes, that's what I did actually... to bad I can't resize...  undecided If I really want to, I could find a way, but... just not now.
Plus, I installed the ANSI autohotkey version instead of the Unicode one, and all is fine with the "legacy" scripts -- don't know for how long, but I'll remain happy until then...
56  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: March 21, 2012, 10:05:09 PM
i'm running the titlelog.ahk file with AutoHotkey_L on a win7 x64 laptop.
So that's it. Now that I installed AutoHotkey_L, I'm experiencing the same problem as you.
I don't have the time to fix the code fat this point. But you want to look at it though, that would be great.
I haven't looked at the SetTimer method... I have a look at it during the weekend.
Thanks !
57  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: March 20, 2012, 09:43:04 AM
Ok, I most probably found the problem : We're not using the same AHK version (thought about that thanks to Lanux in this thread). I should've thought about that earlier...  embarassed

Which version are you using ? I just moved to the last version and... Am having the same problem you have.
I don't have the time to fix that at the moment, but will check it out later this week. Meanwhile, if you come up with a solution, I'll be happy to try it !  smiley

Thanks for your patience and perseverance !

Interesting. I just installed it but am having problems with various scripts. Will revert to the plain AHK for now and will check later.
(Of course, the compiled version of AHKSnap isn't affected at all -- just saying this for others reading following the thread !)
Thanks Lanux.


(EDIT : BTW Lanux, if you want to create a new thread -- or split this one -- for AHKSnap, you can... It's different enough to justify it. It's really up to you.  smiley )

Cool ! I like it. Much, much better and sophisticated. It's a completely new script.

Of course, as I told you, that was my first baby step into the scripting/programming world... Didn't know anything at the time. I still feel like I know nothing, but that's another story.  Grin

The exe works perfectly.

The AHK file gives me an error : "IniRead" requires at least 4 parameters. I quickly added "size9" as the last argument. Not sure that this is the best way though -- just did what seemed obvious without too much thinking. (The reason I'm trying the AHK file is that I usually append all the little scripts together in a bigger script... less processes to manage).

Did you close the message box before looking at the log view ? The message won't be written to the log file until you close it. Also, the original version won't log anything while the message box is open -- this is by design : if you're lunching, you're not necessarily trying to see what your computer activities are (unless that's not what you want, of  course...).

I just redownloaded v1.17.28 and here's a screenshot after closing the message box and opening the "details" view :

[attach]

("Out to lunch" being the message box)

[EDIT : of course, if you didn't like that behaviour, I understand why you'd turn the switch ON. However, my point is that it's not that the message box isn't log, but that it's not "logged" while it's opened to be able to calculate (e.g.) how long your lunch period was.]

Friends or acquaintances who durably* switched did it for 4 main reasons (one or all of them, in no specific order):

- extremely strong philosophical/ethical ideals (usually related to the open source philosophy),
- absolute need for work/studies (using very specific applications in very specific environment),
- need to be part of a certain subculture because other "friends" are part of it,
- ...  price and/or too much time on their hands.  smiley

*durably = barely using windows for prolonged periods of time.
62  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: March 19, 2012, 12:20:06 AM
Just a note :  if you're looking at the "Summary view", those "message box" appear under the "autohotkey.exe" application name.

(I also realized that while the comments aren't appearing in the detailed view -- in the original version -- they actually do in the "Summary view", but without any useful time indications...)
63  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: March 19, 2012, 12:07:53 AM
no, i didn't change anything else, just 8 "off"s. with it off, when i choose "out to lunch" from the right-click tray icon menu, a msgbox with the title "out to lunch" pops up but it isn't logged, the time "out to lunch" was begun does not show in my detail log. it may stop logging the elapsed time to window that had focus before invoking "out to lunch" but it doesn't log the time the "out to lunch" button was up.

Weird. Here the message box is logged, with proper time, etc. It's always been. And everything is set to OFF for the reason mentioned in my previous post.

I just tried the original version, and it does log these message box. What it doesn't log though are the comments from the "Add a comment" dialog.

Quote
you're saying if i switched windows while the button is up, it would continue to log the window that has focus? i suppose that's okay, as long as "out to lunch" shows up in the detail view--that's my main interest.

Yes -- unless I'm mistaken -- that's what it should be doing from what I understood after a quick look at the script.

Quote
well, you know what they say about a little knowledge being a dangerous thing! i used to program a lot in BASIC and  AutoLISP, but i haven't programed for a while so i'm enjoying tinkering with the insides in AHK.

Hehe. Programming/scripting is fun !  smiley
64  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: March 18, 2012, 08:56:47 PM
perhaps earlier in this thread it was debated whether the preset messages should be logged. i want them to, so the other change i made to TitleLog.ahk is to change the lines
Quote
SetTimer, logchanges, off
to on, all 8 times, and that seems to do it!

Actually, the on/off switch has nothing to do with logging or not the preset messages. Unless you made some other changes, they should already be logged -- here, they are...

As far as I understood is that the parameter determines whether other windows titles will be logged or not while the preset message is visible. Personally I think it makes more sense to leave the value as it is :  off

What wasn't working properly before was that the custom comments weren't showing in the details view. I "fixed" that but forgot to mention it in the script. Custom comments didn't show up because they had no value to calculate the "Elapsed" (%result%) value. So I just added literals. I must admit that I took maybe 10min to create that "solution". It's a quick hack as I only needed to see my custom comments in the detailed view.  embarassed

Quote
when i look at the details log, and click on the summary view button, the summary log opens, but when i close it, the detail view is now empty! is it supposed to do that? no problem, i just close it and reopen it.

That has always been the case I think. I didn't try to fix it as it doesn't bother me enough. I just click the "Refresh & Reset list" button.

Quote
thanx for updating this project!

You're welcome... I'm not an official updater, though...  embarassed

Thanks for that classic.
I won my bet too. The only thing is I'm not sure if it's a good thing...  smiley
66  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: March 17, 2012, 06:53:20 PM
I kept being interrupted by daughter dramas...!

So here. I corrected the icon problem. The script looks for it in the working directory (i.e. in the folder where you're running the script), if it doesn't exist, it just moves along...

I also provided a compiled version for those who'd preferred to run an EXE instead.

You can just replace your current .AHK or .EXE file and tell me if it works well.
67  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: March 17, 2012, 05:58:49 PM
Thanks !

1- Line 34 - Ooops. Yes I forgot about that icon business... . I use a custom icon too. I should've put a relative link the script folder, or something like that. I could fix that.

The other two aren't linked to my modifs. They were there before.

2- Line 114 -  Didn't change anything on that line. I'm not sure why you got an error though as I don't think you need a comma after "range". (See AHK documentation. E.g. GUI Control Types-> UpDown (3rd section on the page)). However, there's a syntax error there anyway. It shouldn't be "range 1-60" but "range1-60". (Note that making a syntax error there limits the number range to 100 instead of 60.)

[copy or print]
 Gui, 2:add, UpDown, Range1-60, %idletime%

3- Line 443 :  I didn't touch that line either. Strangely, AHK's parser / script compiler doesn't yell at that period (and it didn't say a word about the wrong range argument !)... So it must be pretty forgiving.

You probably thought about that but... if you're a busy person, "transitioning" to Linux (or any other OS : OS X, Windows) without very good reasons, isn't -- IMO -- a good idea. Of coure the "very good reasons" can be as simple as "fun and variety". But in any case your goals need to be clear as transitioning is NOT simple, easy and rapid -- at least for people like you (I don't know you that much, but you seem to be even pickier then me, which is rare Wink ).

Of  course, for my daughter, switching from windows to Linux was just a matter of selecting Linux in the boot menu. But all she does is searching Google, playing a few flash games and writing stuff in libre office !

So, my 2c :
- 1 or 2 y ago, after some exploration, I chose Mint to install on older laptop here.** Others here have mentioned Mint, it's a good choice, there are many other good choices depending on your goals. Context is important.
- Using a live CD or a spare computer are also good ideas in what seems to be your case. If you're a busy person, you don't want to be immobilized because things aren't working at all. I wouldn't go the VM route. It seems simple, but... it depends.  smiley


**Note that I've been a Linux user (almost exclusively) between 98 and 2000 I think (although the journey started in 1997). Things were a lot less smooth at the time with distros like Caldera, Mandrake, Suse and RedHat. When I look back at those 2 years, I see I had fun and learned many things. But I also see a gigantic time drain in which I could've been much more productive (and a better boyfriend, for that matter!), but was mainly obsessed with drivers, broken kernels, internet connection, file conversions, software testing, etc.

Things have changed a lot since then, but success depends roughly on 1- what one wants to do, when, with whom, etc. (i.e. : context related parameters), 2- the person's technical level.
71  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: February 29, 2012, 07:41:49 AM
Some users showed interest so here's my tweaked version (attached)

From the last post, modifications are :

1- If double click an item in the list (detailed view), the "window title" or message is copied to the clipboard, ready to be copied somewhere else.

2- A message (Comment) can be entered by pressing Ctrl+Chift+Alt+T (the shortcut key opens the "comment" dialog).

3- When one enters data in the "Comment" dialog & saves it ("Save Comments" button), it's also copied to the clipboard, ready to be copied somewhere else.

4- fixed a small bug : manual comments didn't show up in the detailed list. They now do

5- Other things like the initial sort in the detailed view (hours descending instead of ascending).

VoilĂ  !

P.S. : And a big THANK YOU to Brett for that great program.
72  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Very simple timeclock utility on: February 27, 2012, 09:33:16 PM
Hello (Brett and titlelog fans).

I've made a couple modifications to the script.

1- When I double click an item in the list (detailed view), the "window title" or message is copied to the clipboard, ready to be copied somewhere else.

2- A message (Comment) can be entered by pressing Ctrl+Chift+Alt+T. The shortcut key opens the "comment" dialog.

3- When I enter a Message in the "Comment" dialog and save it, it's also copied to the clipboard.

4- fixed a bug : manual comments didn't show up in the list. They now do

5- Other small personal things like initial sort (reversed), etc.

Anyhow, if someone is interested... smiley

I should probably also try to detect the presence of MSE and report the tip to the user if it is found running

Keep in mind that the problem might not be MSE's exclusivity. This post suggests that Avast might cause problems too :

Looks like I may be switching from Avast to MSE in the near future, just so I can turn this off.(The problem occurs with Avast, also)

I can't verify the hypothesis though, so maybe other users with different AVs can chime in.

@tranglos : hehe. Yup, quite a book. It is "real". I'd say it probably belongs to "Transgressing the Boundaries: Toward a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity" 's *** category of book. Life is too short to really find out though, so I decided to just use the book as desktop search software test tool. My apologies to the author. smiley

(I belong to that lower species too.)


I tried archivarius but I struggled with the way it presents the results. I have to search several hundred times in a pot of documents to find date/price of purchase of something. Might be in a spreadsheet, might be in a pdf or a letter. I would have loved it if archivarius showed me just enough of the results that I didnt need to open the document.

Archivarius isn't perfect, but I never got the problem you describe : you can filter results by documents types, name, see the excerpts containing what you're searching instead of the full text, etc. which is very convenient. That said, IMO the best implementation of filtering is in X1 through columns and Boolean operators.
