New C# FARR Plugin: FARRGoogleCalendar
« on: June 09, 2008, 06:05:33 AM »
Description

This plugin serves in two modes:

1) See your upcoming events up and directly go to them. Defauly keyword: gcal
2) Use the QuickAdd feature of Google Calendar to quickly add events. Before actually creating an event, you are given a preview of the date. Defauly keyword: gcal add

Thanks to czechboy for the inspiration :)

Download

http://vitalyb.dcmem...RRGoogleCalendar.zip

As with any C# plugin, if you don't see the C# plugin in the FARR plugin list after the installation then download the following update from Microsoft.

Known issues

  • The user/password is stored in the options file in plain text.
  • You can't add external calendars

For some reason, this does not work for me. I tried installing the plugin through DcUpdate and also tried the manual method, but the plugin simply does not even get detected by FARR. I even tried reloading all the plugins from within FARR.

In the meanwhile, I've come up with an alternative using FARR's new htmlview feature and Mobile Google Calendar (optimized for small screens) :
Code: [Select]
Regular Expression Pattern: viewcal
Results: viewcal | htmlviewurl http://www.google.com/calendar/m

At the bottom of the results, there is a field to enter in new dates.

Try to download the following update from Microsoft that should resolve your problem.

I also installed the file you linked to and gcalc crashes farr for me as well. When restarted, farr crashes again with the attached error.

 (see attachment in previous post)

Put the attached file (unzip contents) in the directory and tell me if that helps. If it does, I'll put it to the zip.

I also installed the file you linked to and gcalc crashes farr for me as well. When restarted, farr crashes again with the attached error.

Your case is kinda strange. Can you try to go the URL that is displayed in your messagebox? What does it say? It can also be an issue with your credentials but not sure.

Hmm, I might have used username@gmail.com as username, instead of simply username (my screenshot says 'username@gmail.com@gmail.com' (username is blanked out)). Anyway, I also put your attached file in the plugins\FARRGoogleCalendar folder and now it works, so I guess that .dll file is required. Please include it as part of the plugin :)

Thank you, it works now with the extra dll file that you attached later.

'gcal' shows me my events

But 'gcal add <text>' followed by any number from 2 to 9 doesn't do anything. When I add '1' at the end, the event gets added w/ start and end times as the current time.

Any idea how to fix this?

well, I am not able to go up to that part.

I type the following in FARR window:

Quote
gcal add gym tomorrow


and after that when I press the space bar and type '7', nothing happens. '7' doesn't get typed.  :-\

sri: does '\7' (backslash followed by the number 7) work?
The problem might be that when you press '7', farr tries to launch the 7th result.
To solve this problem, there's an option to specify if "digit keys launch results from search window".

'\7' didn't help. I mean, the slash gets typed but not the number.

However, I unchecked 'digit keys launch results from search window' option and now this plugin works fine.

Is it possible by any way to make it work w/ 'digit keys launch results from search window' checked?

Ok, glad to know at least we figured out what was causing that.

I belive '\7' worked in previous versions, something must be wrong. (or it was some other escape sequence which i am not remembering correctly  :-[).

I don't think it'd make much sense for that behaviour to be changed for this plugin specifically. I mean, if generaly people would like to use digits to launch, this should apply to this plugin which also has several stuff that can be launched. Still, in the specific situation that you're entering a new event, it might make sense to disable the feature.
Maybe mouser could add a "temporary disable feature" capability to the plugin framework?

IIRC, the plugins that have memo display (like fcalc, for example), ignore that setting and always assume it's off, so the capability is there, in theory.

In short, the answer to your question, sri, would be: No, not at this time.

It's the pound sign that escapes digits when you have the "digits launch" option set, e.g. '#7'
I recommend not using that option -- but i'll put a note in the options panel about using #.

A great plugin...
I seem to have found a problem with it though. It takes the proxy information from the IE settings. And if the proxy specified there is not working, the plugin crashes and makes FARR crash too. Now since I have FARR on startup, each time I boot my system at home/work, FARR crashes and I need to fix my proxy settings and then restart FARR.

Glad you enjoy it :).

I see the problem. I see two possible fixes:
1) You make it so the proxy in IE is fixed before FARR is ran.
2) I can do some exception handling that makes the plugin show "connection unavailable" when it can't connec.t

Obviously #2 would be the best option but I have very little time last months to work on FARR. What are you options regarding #1?

NP vitalyb, I think I can live with this. For option #1 I would need to write a Windows Script to determine my IP address and depending upon the range keep the proxy enabled in the registry and then launch FARR. Am a lil lazy, but this should not be much effort, I'll do it sometime soon when I find time :)

But IMHO, two things need to be looked at
a. The plugin coders should catch their exceptions.
b. Maybe FARR should not crash on a plugin exception, instead it should notify the user and disable the plugin.

The crash is replicated even if I start up my PC without being on a network  :huh:

Hi,
Just installed it & it comes up with a msgbox detecting that it's my first-time use and advising that I need to configure the plugin - but, doesn't seem to offer an further avenue/advice how to do so.

Sorry for the bump, but i can't seem to get this plugin to work. After i copied the files from the zip, when i try to reload the plugins, i get this error "External exception E0434F4D.". If i quit FARR and run it again, it just crashes at startup.

Any idea why ?

[Edit] Details from the startup crash, if it helps :
