Yay!!!  ReOpen 3.5.0.3 is first FavesSoft app to reach 1000 downloads on Softpedia.

Nice to get one right!!  These are just downloads initiated directly from Softpedia.
When my Hotkeys page was featured as a Gizmo "Hot Find" I think there were 4000 downloads that day.  It's nice to come up with one people like using as much as I do.

Anyway, that and a cup of coffee and I feel pretty good. :)

Thank you.  I don't know if I'm allowed to claim "success" if I don't have a BMW Convertible but it's nice that people liked the program.  :)

ReOpen v. 3.7

Recompiled with AutoIt3 v. 3.6.6.1.

Tray Menu only opens on Right Click avoiding "flash" when double clicking.

ReOpen v. 3.72

Fixed a bug introduced in the previous update.  Running a 2nd instance of the program would cause it to zero out the data file(s) as it exited.

Please update to the latest from my hotkeys page.

Please use ReOpen file version 3.2.7.1 or newer to avoid the regression mentioned above.

ReOpen 3.7.2.2

Found that the ProgramList.txt data file erasure was related to double chaining of ReOpen's cleanup routine.  iow it got invoked twice on program close causing an array emptied during clean-up to be written to the file.  Since it could have been normal for the user to delete all entries in the list I didn't block writing the file if the list was empty.  Now there has to be at least one entry in the list or it won't be saved to file... just to guard against having to redo the list.  The bug should be dead but it's probably not very likely to delete all items in the list.  So that safety precaution is probably a good idea.

If you really are determined to delete all entries, just delete ProgramList.txt that's in the same folder as ReOpen.exe.  It will be regenerated on next program run.

This note is also in the readme.. but I don't read the docs all the time when I  use software either.  Not if it's working the way I want!! Why jeopardize good results by injecting proper information?  :)

ReOpen v. 4.0

Now you may type more than one item into the edit
box separated by a semicolon(e.g. c:\temp;c:\windows;c:\MyProg.exe)
and hit Enter to open them simultaneously.  You can still select items
from the lists and push onto stack before using the Edit control, and
all items will be popped off the stack, checked to exist, and opened.

For multiple items in Edit control to work, the Edit control must have
the keyboard focus when you press Enter.

ReOpen v. 4.1

In addition to using the "visit hotkey page" command in the Tray Menu, now
in ReOpen all you have to do is put the pipe character('|') by itself in
the Edit Line and hit Enter. Default browser will be opened to FavesSoft
hotkey page. If anything follows the pipe on the line, it will be assumed to
be a URL and an attempt will be made to open default browser to that page
(e.g. entering: |www.donationcoder.com should browse to this site)

ReOpen v. 4.2

F1 Help is now available while the Popup Window is open.
TreePad Lite 3 or higher is required.  If the TreePad format
help file is not found or TreePad is not installed, it reverts
to displaying the Readme.

http://www.treepad.com/treepadfreeware/

edit: I've updated the Readme so that it is analogous to the
TreePad help.  Same info in both.  The Readme also has
revision history at the bottom.

edit2: btw there's also a TreePad Reader program that's free and it's
allowed to distribute it with TreePad files.  But since TreePad Lite
is not made to handle graphics it snaps open much faster. it's also
free and generally useful to have other than reading my utility
help files.

For instance I started this little Tips tree file but I keep forgetting
to add tips.

ReOpen v. 4.3

At PhilB66's request I added a command to the Tray Menu for FolderCache .. Choose Help Reader .. to accommodate the fact that TreePad may be run portably. I made the same modification to ReOpen.

If the reader is chosen via Tray Menu command or added to the .ini file manually, that exe will be launched with the .hjt help file as param, rather than relying on file type association.  If it is blank, file type association will be checked.. if that is not registered, then the last option attempted will be to display the Readme.

The new version is available on my site now.

You're welcome.  Sometimes stuff goes over my head like Whoosh!! I should have thought of F1 help key assignment 6 months ago.  Oh well, at least it seems to work predictably. :)
