Thanks, all.  I appreciate it.   :D :Thmbsup:

the returns are apparently not needed.

Returns are not necessary if it's a single line of code which completes the command.

I've used this utility for many many years.   :Thmbsup:

I have added your app in my 'similar app' list

Thanks!

That's a nice idea.. I have some code to pull an icon from an exe.

There's no need to extract the icon as this is done via hidden "desktop.ini" files within the folder in question.  Here's a sample:

Code: Text [Select]
  1. [.ShellClassInfo]
  2. IconResource=C:\path\to\program\program.exe,0
  3. [ViewState]
  4. Mode=
  5. Vid=
  6. FolderType=Generic

I'd like to view a small .png (or.jpg/ .gif/ .bmp) file in a GUI free window (Ie. with no titlebar/ toolbars etc, just a clean 'canvas') via a command line

Perhaps my Frameless program fits the bill?

Thanks for the explanation. I'd be sorry to see sWeather go, but I certainly can understand your not wanting this to cost you more money.

sWeather is one of the few apps I wrote for myself, as opposed to a coding request.  I still use it daily, so I plan to make it work with one of the APIs out there.

Have you considered accepting PayPal donations?

I'm not sure if this is of any value but OpenWeatherMap.org appears free for the sort of volumes I imagine sweather generates. Apologies if I've accidentally repeated a previous suggestion.

Thank you, and, yep, that's one of the ones I'm looking at.   :)

I'm using v1.8.2b1 on a Win10 Pro machine. I remember a year or two ago Yahoo changed their API and sWeather stopped pulling data. I don't know if the API has changed again, but the data hasn't changed for two cities for the past two days. I have exited and relaunched sWeather multiple times and I have also rebooted the PC a few times. Still not updating.

https://developer.yahoo.com/

Yahoo! are shutting down their free weather API, which sWeather uses for its data. Unless I find another free weather API to use, sWeather will stop working. The problem is that all the free ones I've researched are extremely limited in 1) number of API hits per day and/or 2) the weather data that the free tier offers.  I already pay out of pocket yearly for a few other APIs for some of my others apps, so I'm not relishing the idea of paying for yet another one.

N.A.N.Y. 2021 / NANY 2021 Release: Title Bar Battery
« on: January 01, 2021, 02:22 PM »
NANY 2021 Entry Information

Application Name Title Bar Battery
Version 1.0.0
Short Description Add battery percentage to window titlebar text.  Also adds a battery icon to the system tray to show battery life.
Supported OSes Windows 10. Probably works, but not tested, on Windows XP/Vista/7/8.
Web Page Website
Download Link Download
System RequirementsA computer with a battery (laptop, tablet, etc.) that runs Windows.
Version HistoryChangelog
Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Add battery percentage to window titlebar text.  Also adds a battery icon to the system tray to show battery life.

Features
  • Currently, it updates every fifteen seconds (will be made configurable at some point).
  • A plus in front of the battery glyph (+🔋) shows that you're charging (plugged in) while a minus (-🔋) shows that you're discharging (not plugged in).
  • Exiting from the tray icon should clean up the title bar text.
  • Not all title bars are modifiable, so some windows won't show the battery percentage information.
  • Windows that constantly update their title bar text, like some text editors, will remove the battery info. However, the fifteen second timer will bring it back.

Planned Features
  • Configurable refresh timer.
  • Auto-start with Windows option.

Coding Snacks / Re: Adjust Subtitle (SRT) Timestamps
« on: December 20, 2020, 08:46 AM »
I use Subtitle Edit for all...uhhh...subtitle editing.   :P

14
I'll take a crack at this one.  How soon did you need it by?

15
@Deo, also, if you need support for more formats, you can grab them at the Un4Seen website: https://www.un4seen.com/   (scroll down to the AddOns section).

16
It appears to just be an audio player from the website. And it does not work for my needs.

Deo, it needs bass.dll for more format support.  Download this: https://www.un4seen..../download.php?bass24 and put bass.dll in the same folder as 1by1.exe.  Restart 1by1 and you should have much better luck.

17
but I noticed, that the R,C,L and T,C,B doesn't work anymore for the x and y parameter

Thanks for testing.  I will fix that.   :)

Re GIF support: why not use Activex control e.g. a browser, to display it, takes care of GIF animations and transparency.

That's what I ended up doing.   :Thmbsup:

Hello @skwire
If you add these Features, I'd pay for it, maybe that helps ;)

See post above.   :)

19
- A click-through Option (suggested by bandit012345)

This could be done.  Added in the beta build below.  Please test.

- Transparent Gif's should display transparent instead of white

AutoHotkey doesn't handle animated GIFs natively, so I'm not certain if this would be possible.  After several hours, and 47 builds later, I think I have this working properly now in the beta below. Transparency should work for animated GIFs as well.  Please test.

- An Option to do Animations with png Files e.g. a fps option, and a option to specify a folder full of png's (the frames)

This is out of scope for this application.  However, with the current options available within Frameless, you should be able to accomplish what you want with your own batch or AHK script.

PS: I hope that someone is still reading this in 2020  :D The Feature Request-Button on the Website didn't work

Which button and which website?

I'm going to need some time to find a workaround

Is there no way to whitelist a file within Avira?

Here's my take on this snack: http://www.dcmembers...nacks/TB_Battery.zip

Still early and not feature complete, but the basic functionality is there.  It looks like this:

Screenshot 2020-11-11 150454.png

Notes:

  • Currently, it updates every fifteen seconds (will be made configurable at some point).
  • A plus in front of the battery glyph shows that you're charging (plugged in) while a minus shows that you're discharging (not plugged in).
  • Exiting from the tray icon should clean up the titlebars' text.
  • This suffers from the same issue as Chris' in that windows that constantly update their titlebar text will remove the battery info.  However, the fifteen second timer will bring it back.

I tried to find similar peace of software, but google didn't show me this site. After long searching, this site came to mind and  I added donationcoder to my query. I'm sorting 2000 pics for my picture frame right now. Thanks a lot!  :-* :P :Thmbsup:

Great to hear.  I hope the program worked well for you.   :Thmbsup:

24
In these situations, and especially with the "filename too long" problems, another thing I always try is to use the 7-Zip GUI interface to see if I can get to the folder and delete it from within 7-Zip.  Sounds strange, but it works quite often.
