is there a way of running AXEM silently?

"silently"- do you mean that it wouldnt show a window when started? You'd probably have to ask Justice in the AXEM thread, I dont know of a way.

yeah, so AXEM doesn't show itself - I'd only need to to start DialogMove and nothing else.

at the moment, FINGERS CROSSED, the .exe version is working okay with my anti-virus (avira). i've simply changed the name of the dialogmove .exe file so Avira doesn't recognise it - i'm assuming it was just picking the name out it's database.

(this is just a suggestion for if/when jgpaiva has time to update dialogmove - i know he's very busy at the moment.)

in addition to the hotkeys that allow you to make dialogmove remember a window, it would be nice if there was an option to do something similar by using the mouse, i.e. a right click context menu would be perfect.

example:
1. a dialog window opens - it's one that doesn't fit within the rules you've set for dialogmove (or it does fit within the rules but you don't want this particular window to move).

2. you right click on this dialog window's title bar (if it has one) and then from the context menu that would appear, you have the four choices that relate to the current hotkeys.

3. you then select from the menu the action you want the window to perform...

- make detectable by title
- make detectable
- make NOT detectable by title
- make NOT detectable

i think this would be a really nice feature.

well spotted, but I have no control over Cody, he comes and goes as he pleases. if you explain to mouser where you saw Cody he well have a prize for you (or maybe just seeing Cody is a prize in itself).

 :( :( It's the usual false positives with authotkey (the language used to build GridMove).
To make sure, you can try uploading the file to Virus Total, which checks it using a few a few antivirus.

Unfortunately, this is caused by incompetent anti-virus designers, and there isn't anything a developer can do to prevent this problem.

It's incredible!

After 3 years of no updates, here's dialogMove 2.0!
It's so good that we jumped past 1.9 :P

Actually, it's pretty much the same, except that now it works on multiple screens!
Go get it right away :P


DialogMove v2.0 updated 24-04-10:

If I don't have multiple screens, should I stick with the old version?

Rule #1 of free software... the newest version is best.  (Assuming its a standalone... if its a
multi-module project, be careful, but this isn't)
So you came along and found Java(insert programming language here)? Randomly?  Well then, you're just like me! Java fiends rule.  (Though other languages do have their uses.)

AndyM: has it been working well for you? Then it probably won't make any difference.
I also corrected a few lines of code that looked like a bug, but if you haven't noticed it, then probably this update will be pretty much the same :)

SingingBoyo: actually, I'd say that with free software, if what you have now is working, you probably don't want to update: the developer might have introduced new bugs :P

It has been working well, for a long time.  Once it a while it still does something odd, usually moving a window that shouldn't have moved (too big).

If that sort of thing happens again, I'll try the new code.  Might anyway.

(just pm'ed you, jgpaiva.)

i'll be giving this 2.0 version a great deal of testing when i get back to my multi-screen setup. i am so excited about this.

whilst i had a dual screen setup it didn't seem so crucial to have DialogMove working on both screens - but now i've gone to the multi-screen setup (4 screens), having DialogMove work on all screens is going to be absolutely fantastic - it really, really, is going to make a difference to my day.

thanks for spending time on this, jgpaiva.

What, is this a beta version? Or worse, alpha?  Just deal with the bugs now, then you can get the developer to fix them before you actually NEED the new features :P

No, this is supposed to be a full version (unless I was using that irrational numbering scheme of KDE where the 'X.0' versions mean beta/alpha).
But with free software (to be fair, with ALL software - free software only suffers more from this syndrome because it doesn't have such extensive testing), you really never know if the developer didn't add a few more bugs to the code when fixing others :)

excellent. the new DialogMove appears to be working perfectly. I've not used it for long but all dialog windows behave as expected so far.

thank you very much for this, jgpaiva. my machine feels 1000% friendlier already.

I found this little gem yesterday and have found a couple of issues.

The "which windows..." entry in the options allows newlines but doesn't interpret them as separators, with the effect that the ini can get populated with entries that can't be interpreted. It's not clear what the separator should be, either.

Trivial: on the "rules" tab, "Height" is misspelled.

Hi Oblivion!
Try using a coma (","), it should work. If it doesn't, just select the window you want to make detectable and press F8.

Aha. I was experimenting with semicolons. Thanks!
