(Flashing tooltip)

Running Windows 10 x64 v1909, I don't have access to another OS to test it on right now.
-ConstanceJill (June 25, 2020, 05:45 AM)
Confirmed for Windows 10 x64 v1809 too, but doesn't happen on my Windows 7 laptop.

I do not think I can do anything for that as I just tell it what tooltip to show and it does it. It appears to be forcing the tooltip to display not over the taskbar/system tray as well as not allowing the tooltip to go off the edge of the screen, so that is a perfect storm you could say for the following.

The thing is when the tooltip appears and the mouse is then over the tooltip, then it thinks you are no longer over the control therefore it disappears making the mouse over the control again and that is how you get that loop. I will look into it more to make sure though.

These are some nice improvements. Thanks!  :Thmbsup:

However, I don't quite understand this:
  • Delete from the layout management menu with a certain key+click combo on the layout item of a non opened layout.
Can you elaborate?
-ConstanceJill (June 24, 2020, 11:11 AM)

It is possible to delete from the layout management menu (as in deleting the file from hard drive and then removing from the menu) other non opened layouts with Ctrl+Left Click.

Version 2.0.6 build 1 of Customizable Remote Administration Panel has been released.

New Features

  • A first run welcome dialog asking for a new layout file name.
  • A layout not found dialog upon run with option to create a new layout file name or skip to select one from the layout management menu if one already exists in the layout folder.
  • Favorite system which should be seamless transfer to the new system keeping your favorites intact, but allows for them to have a title for the combo box instead of just the variable text.
  • Favorites xml file is now part of the simple backup system.
  • Delete from the layout management menu with a certain key+click combo on the layout item of a non opened layout.
  • Now includes a help file. Thanks goes out to Tim Parsons for the writing of it in which allowed me to easily create the CHM version.

Fixed Bugs/Optimizations/Changes

  • A bug with some layout button editor buttons being enabled when they should not have been has been fixed.
  • Optimized the history of variables to where the last used history entry should now be moved to the top of the history list.
  • Reworked the right click/shift+enter/down arrow key of the browse button "..." of the image file in add/edit dialog.
  • Other minor optimizations/improvements.

See first post for the download link.

I don't speak French, so I don't understand most of this, but someone recorded their experience playing the game my team made. :Thmbsup:

Turn subtitles on in cog then go back in them and you can hit auto translate the auto generated french ones to english.

Congrats as well.

Thanks! I'm not sure how accurate the translation was, but it was nice to get an idea of what he was saying as he played it.

You're welcome. Not sure either...but like you said it did seem to give an idea of what he was saying.

Hello, new comer to the forum. Sorry if this is the wrong section. Just wanted to ask/point out a few things.
-zannyzanchen (March 05, 2020, 03:23 PM)

Welcome to the forum!

Asking for an option to disable tray icon from turning red when taking a snapshot..
I've been looking to keep all tray icons displaying on the taskbar at all times instead of having some hidden, but when i do this and take a screenshot I can clearly see the app's icon changing to red each and every time. This is very combustible. I hope you can do an edit to stop this annoying thing from happening.
-zannyzanchen (March 05, 2020, 03:23 PM)

I am not the author so can't comment on the tray icon feature you are wanting that will be mouser needing to reply to this topic.

Need to be able to set time naming of snapshots to 24 hour format  (that way the name sorting will be be properly organized/kept)

Because by normal name sorting order windows will list 2_20 pm before 8_20 am.. But that's not good since the 8 am file should come before the 2 pm but if it was 24 time format naming then the time would be 14:20 o clock. Thus the proper order will be kept. Also it would be cool if we could opt to not have the Am or PM at the end. Just personal preference i guess though; I don't like it. Especially for such a case if it is already using 24 hour time naming for files. I hope you will think to make these changes thanks.
-zannyzanchen (March 05, 2020, 03:23 PM)

File naming is in the Preferences and then File Naming where you can customize the default filename template. :Thmbsup:

(Anybody remember Rusty n Edies, FidoNet, and Boardwatch Magazine?)

One part of that. I ran a FidoNet BBS right up to the early 2000s -- 2:25/108 -- and may have been among the last phoneline-based systems.

Speaking of FidoNet/BBS in general I remember...

Synchronet BBS Software a long time ago and appears it is still going pretty good.
(Has support for Telnet, FTP, SMTP, POP3, IRC, NNTP, and HTTP according to the website.)

Can't think how I never noticed this before.

I've been after something that can do exactly what this does for ages. Specifically, since I noticed that I couldn't find a way to make runas work in other tools I use.

My first impression was slight confusion -- I think you have to have read the initial request and at least some of that background, and I found some of the screenshots helpful and illuminating too. Probably fullblown documentation is unnecessary but maybe a couple of lines of text with a brief description of what each of the fields is typically going to be used for, and a couple of complete examples maybe:

For instance, if I want a button that runs Active Directory Users and Computers as a user with admin privileges from an account without them, you might have:

Image file: <sysroot>System32\mmc.exe;0

Command prefix: runas /user:domain\superuser "<sysroot>System32\mmc.exe dsa.msc"

Button caption: something like "AD Users"

and Button tooltip: "Active Directory Users and Computers"

and "Ignore variable text" checked as this one's probably gonna have to be run locally

along with a little bit of explanation that, at least for its intended purpose, the variable's going to be the remote machine you're aiming the command at rather than anything else, everything would have fallen into place fairly quickly.

If I had a suggestion for a possible improvement: a checkbox that will assume the use of runas and a little bit of program allowing a username and password to be stored and easily amended with a view to adding them to the runas command in the appropriate place without displaying it in cleartext, that'd be rather lovely. :)

But in general: wonderful! Thanks!   :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:


You're welcome!

Yeah I know still got to get to the documentation at some point since I have added more stuff over what it use to be.

Will think on the suggestion as well.

Custom Remote Administration Panel v2.0.0 build 20 has been released.

Please check first post for download link.  New version has everything CRAP v2.0.0 build 1 public beta had along with a few additions/fixes.

Additions:

1. <sysroot> for image files to help with icon exe/dll/cpl paths from the system directory.
2. Right click menu for image file with the "..." button to quickly choose a system icon file to choose an icon from.
3. A toggle checkerboard background in the exe/dll/cpl icon picker dialog to help tell icons that could be hidden because of same solid color of the background color of the icon list. (e.g shell32.dll icon 310, 311, 317, and 318 are a few I noticed.)

Lol fun idea.... :Thmbsup:

Not just a bump but a bump with more information...

I have fixed a few things I have noticed and optimized the new exe/dll selector some more.  I have also decided to add a couple more macros for icons; which namely are the system directory and systemX64 directory (That could be useful for example if the system drive letter is on another drive letter than what you created the button on). :Thmbsup:

Also, has anyone tried the public beta and wouldn't mind sharing what they are thinking?

Just reinstalled Windows 10 and as I'm using a Live account W10 has set the My Documents folder to my OneDrive
[environment]::getfolderpath("MyDocuments")
returns
C:\Users\katykaty\OneDrive\Documents

So FARR is storing config files in OneDrive, which I don't want, especially because the troubleshooting log often has trouble syncing.

So I closed FARR and edited the ConfigDir.ini file by adding the following line at the end, without comment slashes
CONFIGDIR=C:\Users\katykaty\AppData\Roaming\DonationCoder\FARR\Config

Copied all the config files across and removed the initial config folder on OneDrive.

But FARR seems to be ignoring this and has created a new 'first run' folder in OneDrive.

I can obviously close and move the config files back so I don't lose my settings, but what am I doing wrong?

Thanks!


If you do not want to use OneDrive on Windows 10 for default save to location...

I believe you can search Win 10 settings for Default Save Locations and there you can change where the default locations are for a few data types between OneDrive or Windows drive I believe which might have an effect on it.

N.A.N.Y. 2020 / Re: NANY 2020 Release: Portable Application Updater
« on: January 04, 2020, 01:48 PM »
hamradio, correct me if i'm wrong, but it's a general utility that would let you make an updater for different portable applications, right?

Yes, but it DOES NOT download the application zip file at this time. I might work on it for a future release or even work on implementing the capability to launch this program from my File Downloader application. Like I put in the requirements for now you still need a way to check for a program update, download the zip file and then launch this tool. :Thmbsup:

N.A.N.Y. 2020 / Re: NANY 2020 Release: Portable Application Updater
« on: January 04, 2020, 12:19 PM »
My use is with a XYplorer script I wrote which...

1. Does the checking of the which version you have and the online version.
2. Asks if you want to update which it then downloads or uses an already downloaded update file if it is found in the specified spot with the XYplorer script.
3. Launches this program with the command line parameters of the json data file I created for the updater settings for XYplorer along with the source file(the updated zip file) (as specified in the usage_info.txt file).
4. Then my program basically shows the dialog like in the example and you may then hit update. It then proceeds create a backup if you set that up in the json data file for the program you are trying to update.
5. After that it will then extract the zip file over the application data files.
6. It will when it gets to the application executable to extract it will attempt to close the correct executable (Should be able to find the one that is launched from the path setup in the json update settings file.), so that it can extract the application executable over the current one.
7. Once finished it will attempt to launch the application again.

I don't know if many people will find it useful or not...but I decided to put it out there.  Like I said though I do use it myself for updating my XYplorer portable copy/copies as the built in one I believe is just for installed copies and I wanted a faster way to update my portable copy/copies.

As for the scanners that have false positives...I wish those programs that mark it as false positives would get marked as a false positive for once and let them see how they like it when their app is marked that way. As I don't knowingly put that crap inside my programs and my Trend Micro shows clean.

This looks interesting. But to be honest, I'm not really sure exactly what it is or how to use it. Is it an app to be used like DCUpdater used to be?



FYI VirusTotal shows 1/63 scanners marking the file as unsafe, and Jotti has 0/15 scanners marking the file as unsafe.

To others: Given that hamradio is a longtime, trusted member of this site, I feel it is safe to say that the 1 hit out of 78 scanners is very likely a false positive.

I'm going to try updating a bunch of stuff on the member server.. what I could use help with is checking that I don't break anything on member pages.. Can folks who have a page on dcmembers report in here so we can check and make sure your pages are all showing as they should?

Probably the most important thing to check is any plugins you are using.

The reCAPTCHA on the Contact Forms appear messed up and a note in it:

API keys for reCAPTCHA v3 are different from those for v2; keys for v2 don’t work with the v3 API. You need to register your sites again to get new keys for v3. For details, see reCAPTCHA (v3).

24
Nice and...

https://sagelighteditor.com/donate.html shows a min donation of $10 for v5 free if he has to charge for it while... https://sagelightedi...r.com/purchase3.html shows a min donation of $5 for v5 free if he has to charge for it.

Just a FYI the bigger amount he most likely means, but that does make it a little confusing.

25
Indeed it is! I should have read tips.txt again.

No worries. I believe I have got a plan to make em more official anyway. (Separate from the add button caption all together.)

I also have a few other major things I have been able to do.  In turn people who have been using the program will need to do some action's on their own with this new version when I release it. I promise it will be worth it though. Don't click spoiler unless you want a little bit more info.

Spoiler
Like create a directory within the program directory and move their button data file to it...
