IDEA: Widget to show info, depending on active window/program
« on: January 03, 2013, 08:22:59 AM »
Hi y'all!

I'm looking for a widget that shows information, related to the active window or program.

For example: when Office runs, the widget shows text i entered like keyboard shortcuts. Alt-tabbing to Filezilla shows the shortcuts for several most-used commands. Or anything else the user enters.

Is this hard to make? Or, does this exists?

Hi lenn-art, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  I recall a thread that requested exactly this sort of application.  Let me see if I can find it.

Or maybe anandcoral's Stick-a-Note from last year's NANY could be expanded to also display any input sent to the currently focused app, etc.?

I readed 2 threads. In fact, there are some solutions, but not satisfying:

Comes up with a AHK-script,

There was a refecerence to an app from Mouser, which could be found in this thread:
