Spews : about the automatic switch delay
« on: April 05, 2018, 08:47 AM »
Hi there .o/

I've noticed something: I recently set the automatic wallpaper switching delay to 240 hours, but after exiting the program and starting it again, I see it has been set to 100 hours instead of the 240 I had chosen.

I guess it's a limit that has been set on purpose (?)
Anyway, would it be possible to let the user also choose "days" for the time delay unit?

Also, I just tested (with version 1.0.8) and setting the delay to 0 seconds just makes it switch wallpapers very quickly (as fast as it can, I guess). Would it be possible to make it so that when set to 0 seconds, it disables automatic switching (while still letting the user manually switch with the previous/next wallpaper hotkeys, and/or keeping the switch at startup)?


Note: made a new thread because of the message about the original thread's last reply being more than 360 days old.

Hi, ConstanceJill.  Nice to hear from you again.   :)

Actually, no.  That just happened to be the default for that UpDown control.  I've changed it to 1-9999 in the latest release.

Anyway, would it be possible to let the user also choose "days" for the time delay unit?

Added in the latest release as well.

Also, I just tested (with version 1.0.8) and setting the delay to 0 seconds just makes it switch wallpapers very quickly (as fast as it can, I guess). Would it be possible to make it so that when set to 0 seconds, it disables automatic switching (while still letting the user manually switch with the previous/next wallpaper hotkeys, and/or keeping the switch at startup)?

The hotkeys should be active even if the "Start wallpaper switching" button hasn't been pressed.  Are they not working for you?

New release here: http://www.dcmembers...wire/download/spews/

Wowl that was quick! Thanks \o/

I only thought about not pressing the "Start wallpaper switching" several hours after posting, before falling asleep ^^' ... I guess it should do the job indeed :]

You are very welcome.   :)  That should have been in Spews from the start.   :D
