help recompiling notepad++ plugin
« on: January 27, 2008, 04:47:31 AM »
hi sorry if this isnt posted in appropriate section. i have a small favour to ask. can anyone recompile MultiClipboard (notepad++ plugin) for me as i dont have any compiler installed at this computer.

i want to disable option 'auto-copy selected text' by default. just change MF_CHECKED to MF_UNCHECKED in line #207 in MultiClipboard.cpp


http://www.peepor.ne...php?p=multiclipboard
http://www.peepor.ne...=multiclipboard1.3.1

thanks in advanced.  :D

Hey BlackCat,

I can get that compiled for you.. I'm a big fan of NotePad++ also.. Let me see what I can do...   :Thmbsup:

I could only find the sources for MultiClipboard1.4.0 Beta on this page:

http://sourceforge.n....php?group_id=189927

I built the sources fine.. But it looks like 'auto-copy selected text'  is disabled by default..

Did you try 1.4.0 Beta? I can upload the DLL, but I didn't have to change anything..

hi. i didint know there were newer version as on the author site, it says 1.3.1 is the latest. i just tried 1.4.0 but 'auto-copy select text' is still enabled by default though..

MultiClipboard.cpp
#247
Code: C++ [Select]
  1. if (bEnableAutoCopySelection)
  2. CheckMenuItem( hMenu, funcItem[MCP_AUTO_COPY_TEXT]._cmdID, MF_CHECKED );

it suppose to save the plugin settings to ini file when you quit notepad++ but it doesnt, at least for me. So everytime i run notepad++ it will load default option for that plugin..  :down:



p.s: hope i'll get a recompiled dll in post #6  :-[

That is really strange because globally it defaults to false:

#77
Code: C++ [Select]
  1. bool bEnableAutoCopySelection = false;  // Use auto copy selected text?

Try putting the attached MultiClipboard.ini in the plugins/Config/ directory where notepad++ is installed and see if that allows you to change the setting, that way you can stay in sync with the releases and not need a recompile when you upgrade, if it doesn't work I'll post the compiled plugin with your changes..

sorry doesnt work either even after putting the ini in plugin config folder. :o when i open notepad++, i see all the 3 options in multiclipboard are still checked..i couldn't figure out what could posibly be the culprit..it seems the plugin ignore the config file.

im using notepad++ 4.7.5 btw. that plugin is really useful but having option 'autocopy selected text' left enabled is annoying because when you do text searches, it will copy found texts that the program highlight

Ok.. looking at the source, wouldn't it make more sense to change the boolean variable, just changing the check won't change functionality, it probably would make more sense to change this line:

#299
Code: C++ [Select]
  1. bEnableAutoCopySelection = (::GetPrivateProfileInt(PLUGIN_NAME, AUTO_COPY_SELECTION, (UINT)bEnableAutoCopySelection, iniFilePath) == 1);

to

Code: C++ [Select]
  1. bEnableAutoCopySelection= (::GetPrivateProfileInt(PLUGIN_NAME, AUTO_COPY_SELECTION, 0, iniFilePath) == 1);

If that does not work, then I would assume the value is being read in from some ini file because internally it is false and the check should follow the boolean.

of course we could just force it's hand to:

Code: C++ [Select]
  1. bEnableAutoCopySelection= 0;

Only thing is I hate plugging a problem like this where something odd is going on that could crop up in other places.. what do you think?

Here is the DLL I removed the GetPrivateProfileInt and just set the variable to 0...

thanks so much!  works like charm :up:


now comes the funny part. im suspecting that the plugin dll that i downloaded on sourceforge actually contains v1.3 although its filename say its 1.4 beta

http://sourceforge.n...mp;release_id=571684

when i use your dll, i see there's one new option - 'show paste list' while mine doesnt have that option despite 'v1.4'  :o

thanks anyway.  :)
