Find And Run Robot / Launch Method: Method 2 - ShellExecuteEx
« on: September 02, 2008, 06:21 AM »
The two launch methods are either ShellExecute or ShellExecuteEx.  But as I don't understand the difference between these two API functions I'm not sure what the difference is. Can anybody provide an explanation.

I ask because at some point I switched to method 2 (either I was just playing around or it was to solve some issue). The problem is that method 2 doesn't launch RDP (remote desktop configuration files) I get an error "The parameter is incorrect".

If it helps these are RDP files (and not shortcuts to RDP files) in the start menu. They work fine if I use the start menu to launch them.

Find And Run Robot / ctrl+Space : Anyway to stop it
« on: August 26, 2008, 02:12 PM »
Is there anyway to stop FARR using the Ctrl+Space hotkey to open itself up? 

I have another application that uses Ctrl+Space (just within the application not as a universal hotkey) and I can't use it because FARR takes control as soon as I press Ctrl+Space. I only use Break to launch FARR so the loss of Ctrl+Space wouldn't affect me, but I guess it would affect others. Is there an option to turn this on/off or even better a way to set a custom key combination to launch FARR?

Find And Run Robot / Launch History and non-program items
« on: June 27, 2008, 01:19 PM »
I can see that launch history records the programs the get launched, but can it store other things?

For example:

If I type "Search" then FARR will list the results from the search alias (google, yahoo, msn ...). I can just press Enter and the first entry will be used.  But suppose I choose "ask" from the list (number 5 on the list I see), it opens up ASK in my browser. Fine so far.

Now if I type "Search" again I get exactly the same results in the original order. So even if I keep selecting the "ASK" entry it never rises up the list to become the default.

Is there any way the launch history can remember things like this as well?

Find And Run Robot / HTMLViewer and CSS
« on: June 26, 2008, 10:20 AM »
Is there any way to get a webpage to open in the viewer and then apply a local CSS file to it.

It seems to me that a lot of webpages have useful information on them but just occupy too much space on screen to work nicely in the viewer. I was wondering if you could specify the URL and the CSS name in the FARR's Alias. FARR would then open the URL in the mini-viewer and then apply the CSS. The CSS would then strip away all the unwanted bits.

I guess there are ways to do this with some of the existing add-ins or a new add-in. I just wondered if there was something more simple available.

Find And Run Robot / Searching network shares
« on: June 24, 2008, 01:00 PM »
If, for example, I type "C:\" then I can browse through the c drive. I can also get to sub folders by typing "c:\windows\" for example

Is there any way this can be done for network shares without mapping them to a drive letter. For example if I type "\\servername\" then can FARR list the shares on the server. Windows explorer can do this sort of thing so I assume suitable APIs exist.
