What are Coding Snacks?
Coding Snacks represent the best of DonationCoder.
On a special section of our forum, anyone can post an idea for a small custom utility/program.
Coders who hang out on our forum keep an eye out for interesting requests and when they see one that catches their interest, they code it and release it to the public for free.
People who find the tools useful are encouraged to donate directly to the coders to show their appreciation.

Hello fellow DC members. I've been working my butt off to make a complete overhaul of the perform function of mIRC.
For those who do not know, mIRC is an IRC client. IRC is a way to chat on the internet with others. DonationCoder has an IRC chat room, check here for more details:
"Perform" in mIRC is essentially just a list of commands that are ran when you connect to an IRC server.
1) Unpack archive to a folder of your choice.
2) Run PowerSchemeToggler.exe and you'll be presented with a small interface
that will allow you to choose two profiles to toggle between. Click the
"Save and exit" button when done.
3) Run PowerSchemeToggler.exe with the -toggle parameter to toggle between
your chosen schemes.
Selector 1.0 is ready for general use I think. The idea is a hotkey app in the Tray that holds a few of your favorite programs that can take the command line param from selected text or the clipboard. One example would be a browser. Instead of relying on a plugin to open the current page in another browser hit the address bar to select text and hit the Selector hotkey(Shift-NumPadDiv by default.) Choose your browser and hit the Go button.
Currently adding programs to the list requires using a FileOpen dialog to browse to the .exe file. A short name is automatically generated but can be edited.
At the moment there's no provision for sorting the list or rearranging the order of apps. A later version should have a few more bells and whistles.
The program uses Glass if enabled on the system.
It requires Scripting.Dictionary object on the PC.
If you don't have Scripting.Dictionary I believe installing
the .NET 2.0 or later run-time will put it on but check the
MS web site for the correct download. If you have .NET 2.0
or later you should have it already.

updated to v. 1.01 Double clicking an item in ListBox presses the Go Button to launch the item.
Items added to the ListBox are sorted(case insensitive sorting.)
A long time ago, someone saw a need for this tool (XP only)
I now see the need for a companion tool for Vista and Win7.
What do you think?
Here are the details on how this is done in Vista/Win7.
