Find And Run Robot / Re: [idea] hotkey toggles alias "lock"
« on: February 07, 2009, 02:21 PM »
Interesting idea. I can see how this is useful for people who use aliases the way you describe. I am not one of them, though, but it's a good idea and I don't think it would be hard to add.

Nope, they should be showing up just fine as long as they are either in your search folders or history. You could add '\' to your query to only display folders.

I don't think it's on purpose either, just a mistake. If it never gets fixed, though, it might be somehow on purpose. Go file a bug report to be sure :D!

Find And Run Robot / Re: How to add 'find and run' into startu
« on: January 29, 2009, 08:55 AM »
The above is true for FARR, and the easiest way.

In the general case, you can let any program start when Windows starts by putting it into one of the following directories (for Windows XP):
%userprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
%allusersprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Use the former to start the program only when you log in, and use the latter to always start the program; regardless of who is logging in.

You can copy one of the lines and paste it the Run dialog (Start > Run) to get to the location (so leave the %...profile% in there).

Thanks, I edited the fsubscript.js manually.

By the way, the Help file fails to launch from the fssc menu. It tries to open: farr://htmlviewurl%20C:\Programs\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins\JScalc\..\help.html/#JScalc

I'm thinking the space (%20) shouldn't be in there :)

Works fine from within JSCalc.

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: [FCalc] Variable increment bug
« on: January 19, 2009, 05:41 PM »
Ofcourse I'm right ;) j/k

I just checked jscalc out for a bit and it certainly is nice, thanks for the tip. It actually does support +=, *= and /=, sweet!

JSCalc is very nice, good job :Thmbsup: Is there any way to change the regex from ^jscalc to something else - preferably shorter? It does not show up in Farr's Plugin Manager so I cannot change the regex, neither can I change it by using fssc > jscalc settings.

FARR Plugins and Aliases / [FCalc] Variable increment bug
« on: January 19, 2009, 10:27 AM »
Hi mouser,

I believe I have identified a (pretty obvious) bug while incrementing a variable which has been created using FCalc. If I want to add 1 to a variable x, is there any other way than using fc x = x+1 or fc x = (x+1)? The += operator is not supported I noticed, so I figured this was the way to go. However, the variable x actually gets the value x+2.

To reproduce:
1. Launch FCalc using its regex
2. Type 'x = 0'
3. Type 'x = (x+1)'
4. Type 'x' to see the result.

The result is supposed to be 1, but instead is 2. This happens all the time.

I think part of the bug is the fact you can alter variables *without* pressing the enter key. For example, I can type:
1. 'x = 0' [ENTER]
2. 'x = 5' // But then remove the line using backspace, perhaps I made an error. I *did not* press [ENTER] here.

Now, however, x *did* in fact change to 5. Which, imho, it should *not* do.

::important edit

It seems if I want to increment integer x with the constant n using the notation x = (x+n), it is somehow parsed to x = x + 2n. In the case of incrementing by 1, this results in an increment by 2. If I increment by 10, however, x will be incremented by 20 instead.

Find And Run Robot / Re: wrong results?
« on: January 19, 2009, 10:19 AM »
Heh well, you certainly search a damn lot of files then. When typing 'wamp' I get exactly 1 result which is Winamp. With 'tbird' I get Thunderbird and the 'Program Compatibilty Wizard', which I removed after inspecting it and judged I did not ever need that.

Find And Run Robot / Re: wrong results?
« on: January 18, 2009, 01:20 PM »
Are you kidding? It is a nice feature. I hardly ever type characters in the actual sequence. For example I usually type 'wamp' to launch Winamp, 'tbird' for Thunderbird etc.

This usually gives me the result I want faster, as with the Winamp example, starting with 'win' would list all the various items with 'windows' in their name as well :)

Find And Run Robot / Re: AHK script for easy FARR win resize
« on: January 16, 2009, 01:25 PM »
Uhm, yes you might want that. Farr would be harder to read at a higher resolution as it gets smaller relatively. Farr is about 1/3 of my screen width. I would like to keep it that way. At 640x480 it would otherwise take up like 88% of my screenwidth, which is something I would not want. Not that I ever use 640x480 ;)

Find And Run Robot / Re: AHK script for easy FARR win resize
« on: January 15, 2009, 05:37 PM »
It's usually better to use relatives like a ratio of @DesktopWidth (this is how the built-in variable is called in Autoitv3, not sure how AHK calls it). For example, @DesktopWidth/5 for standard and @DesktopWidth/4 for wide (just throwing some random numbers here). This ensures FARR takes up the same size on any resolution (relative to the resolution of the screen).

I have never had farr resize itself btw. Running XP SP3

Find And Run Robot / Re: Please fix this
« on: January 13, 2009, 07:28 AM »
Wouldn't simply binding ALT + F4 to 'exit farr' fix it? F4 launches 4th result, fine. But when it's pressed with Alt simultaneously it should register it appropriately. Perhaps because no action is bound to ALT + F4 it registers it as just F4?

Bottom line; Alt + F4 != F4.

Find And Run Robot / Re: Please fix this
« on: January 12, 2009, 07:12 PM »
Launches the 4th result (if present, otherwise does nothing) for me.

You can backup all your tasks, just in case:

Seems perfectly stable now. But dude seriously it's not some pre-alpha OS that may or may not screw up the contents of your harddrive. Just go try it out, no harm in that.

Find And Run Robot / Re: hide tray icon
« on: January 09, 2009, 02:48 AM »
haha well, the tray icon is simply useless as it adds hardly any functionality other than the ability to put in a license key ;) i find tray icons to be completely worthless 99% of the time anyway :)

It works now. I installed 2.45.01 again over 2.34.01 and the problem never occurs again it seems. The only difference I know is I updated FarrMilk from 0.4.4 to 0.4.5, this might have been the cause.

This brings me to the following though; would it be possible to allow the user to customize what is being installed? For example, I never use the built-in aliases (installed to %farrdir%\AliasGroups\Installed) and I always change the contents of the %farrdir%\Scripts directory. When I update FARR it keeps restoring the default files (it does *keep* my changed ones, though). After every installation I have to manually delete these again. Not a big deal by any means; but if you could change the installer a bit to offer a 'normal installation' and a 'custom installation' it would be nice. The custom installation would include:

[ ] FindAndRunRobot core files (required) | would be checked and disabled
[ ] Plugin templates | or whatever you would call the existing *.dcupdate files for many plugins which are available in %farrdir%\Plugins
[ ] Standard aliases | the files in %farrdir%\AliasGroups\Installed
[ ] Special files and locations | the files in %farrdir%\Scripts\

Again, not a big deal but a nice touch imho. Everything about farr is so totally customizable, the installer just kinda lags behind on this.

Works now, thanks!

Hey Mouser,

Just updated from 2.34.01 to 2.45.01, but now the FARR window always stays open after launching anything (just using the Enter key to launch the #1 result). Any thoughts? I have downgraded to 2.34.01 for now.

Running WinXP SP3 (only FarrMilk 0.4.4 as plugin right now, just reinstalled everything).

Hey, I did a new install of farr and FarrMilk 0.4.4 but farrmilk won't load tasks once I have authorized. I can hit Enter as much as I want at this screen but nothing happens:

well, an easy solution would be to *not* add UNC paths to the launch history, right :)?

Find And Run Robot / Re: properties.. menu does not do anything

Just to confirm, the properties menu works as expected here as well on WinXP SP3

Nice idea. Not sure if it is possible to implement but if it is it would definitely be very nice :Thmbsup:
