Works like a charm. Thank you Mouser! :)

Post New Requests Here / Open clipboard content with program.
« on: March 20, 2015, 05:55 PM »
To be as simple as possible, I'm looking for a program or an AHK script that can take the contents of the clipboard and send it to a program to be opened in.

My idea is basically: copy/paste a URL to a video and then following a key combination or clicking on a tray icon, send it to my installation of MPV (as it streams a wider variety of web videos than say, VLC).

I don't know the mileage of this beyond sending youtube/dailymotion links to mpv, but the avoidance of flash player alone would be helpful. You set a file path (or maybe several paths for different file types), copy a URL to a video/image/document, and then hit a key combination or click a tray context menu to paste the link from the clipboard into the program's launch path. I know this is possible because of browser addons for Firefox and Chrome like OpenWith, but those require you to be inside of the browser, looking at an embedded link. A file inside of a flash player or raw URL in an instant message are unable to utilize this function.

Outstanding, works magnificently. Thank you!

The wonderful people over here at DonationCoder never cease to surprise me. Any suggestion for getting a borderless/undecorated/no title bar appearance?

Thanks Miles, the script works fine, but it didn't quite achieve what I was going for.

I already have a hotkey to open the mixer, I was just looking for something that changed the behavior of the mixer window slightly so that it would auto close when it lost focus.

I'm looking for a better way to get to my volume mixer in one click, preferably without having to run another volume control program.

I was wondering if it's possible a AutoHotKey script could change this behavior to where I can click the volume icon in the tray and instead of getting the master volume control, it'd display the mixer, but in a window that functions like the master volume control in that, it is undecorated (no title bar/window borders) and hides/closes when it loses focus. If not a script perhaps a safe registry hack? ;)

I already have a simple AHK script that allows me to hold control and click the middle mouse button on the taskbar to get mixer to pop up in a new window (as it normally functions when you click the master volume control and click "Mixer") but I'm wondering if someone could put together a better way to accomplish this.

I'm willing to bet there is another 3rd party mixer that will do this for me, but I'd rather not install another program since the Windows 7 volume mixer does the job just fine and portability in something like an AHK script is preferred. Though I am open to suggestions of programs (with a focus on being as lightweight and portable as possible) if this request is simply too picky.

Absolutely perfect! Thank you so much Skwire! It assimilates right in with my existing master script.

Unrelated, but interestingly enough the first version would not play nicely with my alt dragging and window shading code in some manner depending on it's placement in the script. Placing it before or between either of those scripts would break the shading and cause the alt dragging to jump erratically. Placing it after them would prevent the listview from launching. Not quite sure why though.

At any rate, the script is functioning just as I want. The autostart toggle bit, along with it's initial purpose, fixed that entirely by me just splitting the autostart toggle up from the initial script around my other functions. No hiccups whatsoever.

Actually, when you think about it, LV_VIEW_DETAILS does function properly.  That is, in details mode in Windows Explorer, you only ever get one column.

Very true, but that doesn't *really* work in an environment where you don't have a scroll bar, unless you have a large vertical area or very few files on your desktop.  ;)

Thank you so much Skwire! Your work never ceases to impress. It's a shame that LV_VIEW_DETAILS doesn't function properly, but LV_VIEW_SMALLICON functions perfectly, just as I wanted!

Skwire, I don't suppose you could provide an efficient method of having a scheme run at the start of the script and have the hotkey toggle be reversed so it reverts to the default setting, could you? Or just syntax to get the list view to execute with a script?

Hi all!

I'm looking for an a way to emulate the function of this freeware.

Preferably something that would run at the start of a script and could be toggled on and off. It'd also be great if I could integrate it into my own AHK script, if possible. I know there is already an AHK script called DesktopHomes that does this, even though I plundered through the source, I couldn't find the bit of code for the function that I want.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, guerillablood, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :)

I'll certainly consider your requests, thank you.  Unfortunately, due to some work commitments, I don't think I'll be able to get to them for at least a few weeks.  In the meantime, you might consider checking out John's Background Switcher, which is probably the most full-featured wall switcher out there.

Thanks! And I've used JBS before, it was over a year ago though and I think I stopped using it due to it being more than I wanted or I simply didn't want it running in the background- I honestly don't remember. Regardless of that, my comment was more in an effort to help improve Spews rather than just get a certain function out of it for myself- even if I could possibly get elsewhere. Time's no issue, just wanting to throw my two cents in. Also thank you for an awesome little program!

Congrats on the second kid man!

Awesome little tool, thanks flamerz! I may actually replace Ditto, my current clipboard manager, with this. The only improvement I can see for this tool is to make an option to have it running from the tray/minimize to the tray instead of keeping it in the taskbar.

Edit: Also, maybe make the time stamping include a field for seconds and perhaps have an option for it to log times of all captures?

Don't suppose it'd be too hard to implement Wallpaper Style options already in Win7 such as Fill and Tile? I have several wallpapers in various aspect ratios and am constantly switching between my on-board 16:9 monitor and an external 5:4 monitor, so a Fill option would be perfect.

I also agree with Jill regarding the refreshing the wallpaper after a resolution change (which would also be a welcomed option for when I swap monitors) and an option to auto-disable/suspend Spews when an application runs in full screen mode.
