Both Folder Cache and ReOpen have been updated.  The Vista Color select dlg now changes color when you select a color from the combobox, to preview.  Also I added a delay when double-clicking the tray icon to avoid a stray click to the icon that moves underneath it when it disappears.

Both app updates have been uploaded.

Edit: added a few more colors to the combobox and put them in alphabetical order.

I finally got rid of that pesky error dialog if a 2nd instance is launched.  Now the 2nd instance quits quietly.  Fixed version available for download now.

v. 2.3 fixed a bug that corrupted program list when Max setting changed with the spin button.

Got rid of lame progress bars.  Didn't look as good as I thought they would.
Hopefully it's more stable than ever now, since the logic is improved.

ReOpen 2.5 released.  Debugged the input filter and also added a Stack button and some memory optimizations.  With the Stack button you can select items, and hit the Stack button to add them to the launch stack.  When done, hit the Open Selected button or right click the most to launch all.  Note that if you double click the mouse on an item, it still only launches that single item.

The Stack makes it convenient to filter and add to stack instead of scrolling looking through the stuff.  The input also has a negation or NOT function.  To show all folders in the list that are not on drive C: use a filter of '!c:' (without the quotes).

Likewise to see folders other than documents you could do !docu  etc..
Don't worry too much about adding duplicates to the stack. If something is already in the stack it's not added again. The stack is destroyed with every window close.  So if you change your mind and don't want to launch anything, just hit the Esc key.

At present I just use a Tooltip to indicate how many items were pushed on the stack.  Later I may change it to a user selectable notification, like a sound or some color change or something.  I'll wait awhile to see if the functionality is solid first.

Added heuristic to list display as I had some reports the program list was slow to fill.  It should be snappier loading up now.

ReOpen build 2.5.0.12

Build 2.5.0.13  I eliminated some duplicate code that slowed populating the lists.  The Program list should load in snappy fashion now.

v. 2.51  - I think it's gonna' level off at this version for awhile.  Has all the features I want and seems to work pretty well.  I'll just let it sit here unless somebody finds a bug.

ReOpen build 2.6.0.8 and later.. minor fix.  Changed file open code so it detects .exe files and uses the folder where the .exe file is located as "start in" target or working directory.  Some programs create shortcuts with the .exe file location in the "start in" field and just assume filenames with a relative path will find their settings and other files. Now they should work as expected.

ReOpen 2.7 added Tray Menu command to open the four most recent folders. Can be set as default command via .ini file. Instead of popping up the window and choosing folders, you can double click the tray icon to open up the last four.

ReOpen 2.71 added Selectable Hotkey to Fast Last 4 Folders. (If less than 4 folders open then it's usually because a folder in the list is no longer a valid path.. could be a mapped network drive that's not mapped or a folder deleted since being added to the list.  I don't check for valid path on program startup because it can slow down loading and also show false negatives due to network drives that aren't mapped yet if the program loads on Windows startup.)

I also added an extra line to the About dialog showing the Fast Hotkey and increased the time-out of the About dlg to 10 seconds.  To keep the about dlg open longer just hold down the left mouse button.

edit: made a slight adjustment in 2.72 so that invalid paths are skipped when launching 4 folders. If there are enough valid folders in the list, then 4 folders will be launched.

I don't know why I didn't think of it before, but I updated ReOpen to 2.8 and set Windows Search (control esc) as the default search hotkey.  You can still change it to another app but now it at least opens something out of the box other than the hotkey setting dialog.  Thanks to Lefax32 for waking me up. :)

ReOpen 2.9 has been updated to support more hotkey combinations.

http://www.favessoft.com/hotkeys.html

edit: added some error checking code and a few minor bug fixes without upping the v. number so if you downloaded before this edit, I advise getting the latest. :)

ReOpen 3.0 released.  Improved background color/text color combinations for Glass enabled systems.  Basically I try to detect if the background color is bright, and use black text instead of white in that case.  But I also added background colors to the drop down box.

ReOpen 3.1 Now when tabbing into a ListBox with no selections, the top item is selected.  This eliminates the need to play around with the arrow keys to select the top item when tabbing into the ListBox.

ReOpen 3.2 Added code to prevent the hotkey from opening the popup window while the About Dlg is showing. This prevents a possible hang if the hotkey were pressed while About Dlg is up.
