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.

I use Subtitle Edit for all...uhhh...subtitle editing.   :P

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

5
@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).

6
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.

7
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.   :)

- 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:

14
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.

Here's a couple of screenshots:

Regarding icon creation, I've used Greenfish Icon Editor Pro (FOSS) for many many years.

Cool idea and mockup.  :)  Unfortunately, with standard Windows menus like Explorer uses, I do not think this is possible.  Microsoft Office does not use standard Windows menus, hence its ability to do what you see in that screenshot above.

I am obtaining frequent warning windows , but the connection seems not lost.

Try using a different IP like Google's DNS servers.  8.8.8.8 or 4.4.4.4
Also, make sure the "Fire alert only once per consecutive host down events" option is checked as well.

You could try my Tray Host Checker utility.

Thanks, Nod5.  I'll mark this thread as solved and move it.

Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Quick toggle some monitors
« on: June 17, 2020, 03:41 PM »
Got it working.   :up:
Problem solved.

The GUI was useful as the monitor #s were not what one would expect.
The SwitchOnOff commandline option worked imperfectly to toggle the monitors (one monitor was not toggling back on properly), so I used 2 hotkeys in AHK, one to turn the monitors off, and another to turn them back on.

Right on.  I'll move this thread.

Thanks skwire, looks like MuliMonitorTool will do exactly what I want  :up:
I will report.

Right on.  I'm sure you'll find out soon enough but, to work properly, the monitors would have to be DDC/CI capable.

This is actually pretty tricky programmatically.  I'd recommend using Nir Sofer's MultiMonitorTool program.  It's a GUI program, but fully commandline controllable.  You could easily create a toggle shortcut like this:

c:\path\to\MultiMonitorTool.exe /SwitchOffOn 2 3 4

Of course, run the tool first to get the proper monitor numbers.
