N.A.N.Y. 2023 / Re: NANY 2023 Release: QR Code Warlock
« on: February 07, 2023, 04:35 PM »
Perhaps the overlay size could be clamped at a maximum of 1/3 of the QR code size, and the user could adjust the overlay to be smaller than that maximum value.

I may implement something like that as I get time to develop it.

However till then...

Might not be a program option currently for resizing the overlay to less but technically you can do that already with a png that has transparency around the edges with the background you want. The program allows for no background color to be drawn before the overlay image gets drawn by selecting Use Transparency in overlay tools drop down. Also allows for more custom borders that the program doesn't offer.

Perhaps you could add a setting or slider for the user to adjust the size of the overlay?

Again, this is just minor nitpicking for something that doesn't affect the functionality of the QR codes output by this app. So feel free to turn down this request.

I may eventually open the sizing up. One of those quirky things that I am still really not too sure on yet even though I researched it some is the primary concern of...basically the format (the best possible for most error correction) I am generating them in writes the extra data for error correction into the other squares which allows for it to have the placement of images on it to still work. So too much cover of the QR code can still prevent the QR code from reading successfully. I found that using a 3rd of the image size usually worked good so that is what it does currently. So the overlay on 660 pixels should be at 220 pixels width/height centered on to the QR code.

I mean the overlay is not aligned to the "pixel grid" of the QR code. A QR code is made up of various squares, the size of each square depends on how much data is being embedded into the code. All of these squares have a uniform minimum size for any given QR code. I'm calling the smallest squares "pixels" because they are basically just a single pixel magnified enough to be properly identified by a camera. And the "pixel grid" I'm referring to is just a grid where each cell (or pixel) is the size of these squares.

In my opinion, QR codes would be more aesthetically pleasing if the overlay image snapped its dimensions to a multiple of the "pixel grid" size, so there are no partial squares showing.

Ahh that. I am not sure right off how easily I can read in the size of each square being output by the QR code library. For QR Code Warlock currently the overlay image is overlaid onto the QR code after the QR code image has been generated by the library since the library does not have a image setting that I could see.

Thanks for the feedback! :Thmbsup:

Not that it much matter, but why does it show my used path with a drive letter of "?" ?

The Quick Tips in the OP says ?:/ is a kind of macro which represents the same drive the app is on.

Deozaan is right on why it shows ?:\ in the path.

One minor nitpick/feature request: Is there any way to align the size of the overlay (or its background) to the pixel grid so there's not partial pixels sticking out from behind it? IMO it would generate much more aesthetically pleasing QR codes that way.

If you are seeing where it looks a little strange in the preview it could be where it's stretching the preview image to display it within the space. (It will save full size even if the preview is stretched.) If it is something different show me a screenshot as I'm not following what you are saying right off tonight.

I didn't realize how old this thread is before I started working on a solution. In any case, it's already done, so here it is anyway.
I believe this should do what you wanted, but do note that I whipped it up in a couple of hours, so it's definitely not perfect.
PS: The "csv" file is saved right next to the executable.

I am pretty sure this could be classified as a NANY App this year I believe for you.

WildGem 2.00 out now! Still free of charge as this is more a labour of love than a money spinner:

https://www.skytopia...com/software/wildgem

Ton of new features and fixes, but the biggest change is the extensive pool of examples which can selected via the a click from the dropdown menu. They not only teach you how to use the program effectively (with mini documentation for each example), but can be experimented with to your heart's content.

You can also now adjust the font sizes for all panels, and multiple undo/redo is supported throughout. For multi-stage queries, you can now see the matches at each individual stage to see how it affects the final outcome. A full list of features can be found on the home page.

Any suggestions or bugs, let me know!

Looking great! :Thmbsup: I did notice a minor text bug of both the Regex/Find -/+ button tooltips being wrong for what they do.

Usage

Installation
Extract to a portable folder of its own and run. (Note: Do not put in the program files folder or other system folder.)

Using the Application
Add a qr code item then change the title, value, and other properties. Rinse and repeat for more and when finished save the qr code list/export the qr codes.

Quick Tips
  • More info to be released later but it can use macros in the overlay path like new ones of ?:\ = APP DRIVE and ?:\app\ = APP PATH and including the other ones from my other programs.

Help File
Please note that the help file is not done.

Just delete the QR Code Warlock application folder.

Known Issues
Currently do not know of any.

Looks great for those that might need it!

Add this to the ridiculous false positive list...As a test I created a new windows app in C++ Builder 10.X with absolutely none of my own code just the base project starting code and 2 or 3 claimed false positive about a year ago.

@hamradio

You know, I've always liked this program.  I've kept it on my computer for years.

I know it's been awhile since you've done anything with it, but I do have a list of requests for it if you are still interested in developing it any.

Just let me know the ideas and we will see. I create as I get ideas (and as time permits) and I haven't had any ideas in awhile for this program.

I went back to a wired Logitech G502 HERO Gaming Mouse the last time my wireless mouse had issues since it was cheaper than wireless.

I use with the Logitech G HUB software.

$40-$50 it looks like it still is at one store.

I am not affiliated with Logitech just a customer.
