[feature request] concerning tooltips
« on: July 13, 2007, 05:22:08 AM »
Hi Mouser,

the tooltips are a very nice add :Thmbsup:

however, is it possible to offset them, so that it's easier to choose results...
now when tooltips are big you just don't see the results below
i would love to be able to set 2 parameters (offsetx, offsety) in the options

what would be VERY VERY powerfull is a way to create dynamic tooltips...(triggered on demand)
for instance, the tooltip instead of showing the complete result name could show the content of the result ! (great to preview code snippets or contacts)
it could launch a specific script which would use the result file

for instance :
Snippets $$1 | dosearch +folder_snippets +open_snippets -alias -.ini +. $$1 \tooltip="show_preview.ahk $$selectedresult"

could then be used to show a preview of pictures....
Pictures $$1 | dosearch +folder_pictures +open_pictures -alias  +. $$1 \tooltip="show_picture.ahk $$selectedresult"

preview mp3 files etc...


or maybe it could be with a new tooltip modifier which would be specified like the +action trick as an alias

Pictures $$1 | dosearch +folder_pictures +open_pictures +tooltip_previewimage -alias  +. $$1

then alias "tooltip_previewimage" with result :
tooltip show_picture.ahk $$selectedresult

Keep up the good work
