Developer's Corner / Executing a file from a link
« on: January 08, 2011, 09:36 AM »

I am writing DCDisplay, and one of the things I've added is the ability to scan your hard drive to produce a report. I have a html template that outputs the file, size, thumbnail image, any problems found, any duplicate copies, average resolution, and number of pages. I wanted the links in the report to be "live" so that you can do <a href="file:\\c:\DCDisplay\DCDisplay.exe c:\path\file.cbr">FileName</a> but this doesn't work.

Has anyone got a small webserver service that can be used with <a href="1270.0.0.1:2012:\\DCDisplay c:\path\file.cbr">, for example ,otherwise I can add it to the application, but I think it's something that could be more general (with whitelisted applications, so DCDisplay would have to be registered to run c:\DCDisplay\DCDisplay.exe for example.

I wanted a replacement for CDisplay (which hasn't been worked on for years), so I am writing DCDisplay. I'm using XNA (although the application will be PC only, no XBox support is planned) as I wanted an excuse to learn C#.

All the basic functionality is now supported, including next and previous (which uses a new sort algorithm that sorts more like English.) I am using a pixel shader to allow the contrast, saturation, brightness, deyellow, gamma, skew, lighten image near spine although the settings are not currently preserved.

Just added the database (which scans your hard drive for the entire contents and allow you to find duplicates based on names as well as contents). This is not the final version, but has most of the features that will be present.

Planned Features
I also want to add some graphical niceties (I want to do a comic style UI).


Download the zip file and decompress it, then run the setup.exe file and it will install it.

Using the Application
When you run the application for the first time it will display a small comic with instructions inside.
The main key you need is space, the controls are the same as CDisplay.

Windows Control Panel / Add Remove Programs, or click the Uninstall DCDisplay link that is now added.
