Updated Description:  I'd like a fast way to log a recurring event (that I am tracking) acutally happend.  My thought is a Program or Firefox Custom Button that, when clicked, adds the date/time to a log file.  Features that would be nice to have:
1. Works with or without the log file (text or html) open in a Tab
2. If log file can be html - record the selected event as an HTML table row.
3. Indicate the event was added by sound and/or message
The following enhancements would allow logging a few different recurring events...
3. Button includes a dropdown with entries based on my own text/vars (eg Event Description 1, 2, 3, etc)
4. Record the selected event as "Date/Time" plus "Event Description"
5. Default button opens the html/text file

Original Post...

I'd like a fast way to log a recurring event.  My thought is a tray icon that, when clicked, adds the date/time to a log file.  My use of this app would be 2 record when something (that I am tracking)  acutally happend.  Features that would be nice to have:
1. Indicate the onclick event by sound.
2. Ability to assign a name to the mouseover popup
3. Ability to assign my own (tray) icon
4. Tiny memory footprint

If there are alternative ways to do this pls let me know... I don't use AutoHotKey so that is not an option for me.  I'm on XP Pro.   I use Firefox 2 - maybe a bookmarklet/extension could write the time to a txt file?  I'll post a question about this option at www.custombuttons2.com

Thanks

I have already got this close to finished. I check back here and see that you have updated your description.  tongue No problem. Give me a few minutes to get this up for you to start testing.

Here is version 0.0.0.3 of Click2LogIt. It just has bare minimum functionality at this point.

  • No installer. Just run it.
  • By default the log file will be named My Click2LogIt File.c2l in your My Documents folder.
  • You can right-click on the tray icon to change the log file.
  • Clicking on the tray icon will log the current date and time and sound a quick beep.

I will start adding the other stuff you asked for.

Please report bugs or request features on my mantis server. (You will need to create an account with a valid email address.)

I'm in the middle of moving, but I have scheduled some time to work on this Saturday evening. I'll have a new release and some documentation.

some feature request ideas:
  • ability to set a text label from the tray, that would be used on subsequent log items. so it's always still just click to add a log item without any request for additional info, but you can change the label added to each log item when you desire.
  • use a more pleasing tone -- the system beep you use sounds like my bios beep warning me the cpu is about to explode from heat
  • global hotkey that can be used instead of clicking tray

1. Works with or without the log file (text or html) open in a Tab
I think that was because you were originally envisioning a Firefox plugin.

2. If log file can be html - record the selected event as an HTML table row.
Issue: 0000017: HTML Log files - Mantis

3. Indicate the event was added by sound and/or message
This is already in there, but I am going to change the tone. Issue: 0000018: use a more pleasing tone

3. Button includes a dropdown with entries based on my own text/vars (eg Event Description 1, 2, 3, etc)
I plan to add the ability to add multiple phrases. 0000019: Allow several different user definable phrases to be set. Please feel free to add to the issue by registering.

4. Record the selected event as "Date/Time" plus "Event Description"
In there.

5. Default button opens the html/text file
There is a tray menu item to open the log file.

I think what you are asking for is already in there. You right-click on the tray icon and select the menu item "Change Log Text". If that is not what you are looking for let me know.

  • use a more pleasing tone -- the system beep you use sounds like my bios beep warning me the cpu is about to explode from heat
I have entered issue: 0000018: use a more pleasing tone and that spurred Issue: 0000021: Allow user defined audio file.

  • global hotkey that can be used instead of clicking tray
Issue: 0000020: add hotkey support
