I have made 3 images of grids.
« on: September 28, 2008, 02:09:50 PM »
Hi, I like Grid Move a lot, but there seems to be an appeal to more advanced users.  I am terrible at math and variables and I just don't have the feel for it.

If someone is up to the task, I have made 3 images which would make great grids in my opinion, but I don't know how to make them myself.  If you don't want to make them, I understand, just please know my intentions are honest and I'm not here to beg for favors.  Just a kind yes or no will suffice.

Here are 3 grids that I have doctored up in Gimp, if someone could reproduce these in the form of a grid I would be very thankful. :)

Also, the resolution I am using is 1680x1050 (16:10 AR)

Thanks,

Hi Neillithan! Wellcome to DC :)

Regarding #1: don't you prefer to have 2 chat windows and a larger browser window (taking the whole space)? Also, if you're using msn messenger, chat windows might not scale as small as you want them to, unfortunatelly.

Regarding #:2: see if the following will do:
grid inside
Code: [Select]
[Groups]
  NumberOfGroups = 3

[1]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /10
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left]
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /10
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Left]

[2]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /10
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /10
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /10
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /10

[3]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Right]
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /10
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Right]
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /10


Regarding #3: do you want it to not touch the top and bottom of the screen? how much space do you want it to leave out? (1/4 of the screen on each side? or more?)

Now, regarding them all: why not have them all in one grid? :)

Hi, thanks for your reply.  The code you gave me for that grid looks very familiar to the 100 possibilities grid.  This is what it looks like when I use that grid.

It almost works.  The layers are squooshed off the edge of the screen.

If a grid can be made that encompasses all 3 of my grids, that would be cool.

I use pidgin as my messenger so the size of the messenger and the buddy list should fit the proportions of the grid that I drew.  Here is a screenshot of what I want it to look like:

I tend to leave a few pixels of space around the browser on all 4 sides for no reason.  So if it's easier to make a grid that ignores those little spaces, that would be fine as well.  I'm not picky. :)

And for the multipurpose one (#3), I want that to be similarly sized to the browser in the picture above.

I hope that helps. :)

Thanks,
-Neil

Here's the #1 grid:
Spoiler
Code: [Select]
[Groups]
  NumberOfGroups = 3

[1]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width] *2/3
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left]
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  *2/3
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Left]

[2]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top] + [monitor1height]/2
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /10
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  *2/3
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top] + [monitor1height]/2
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /10
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  *2/3

[3]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Right]
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /10
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Right]
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /10


Now, let's see if the second one is better like this:
Spoiler
Code: [Select]
[Groups]
  NumberOfGroups = 3

[1]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /10
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left]
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /10
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Left]

[2]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /9
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /10
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /9
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /10

[3]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Right]
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /9
  GridTop       = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight     = [Monitor1Right]
  GridBottom    = [Monitor1Bottom]
  GridLeft      = [Monitor1Right] - [Monitor1Width]  /9
