I have the AutoCorrect AHK script running which is terrific :D
What I would like to do, is that when I am on certain websites (e.g. mobile/cell ones), that my Txt Speak script would kick in but when I have finished typing and sending the (online webpage) SMS, that the normal AutoCorrect would revert to be used.
E.g. in any application or website right now, if I type:
Are yuo going to recieve the parcel twoday?
AutoCorrect changes it to:
Are you going to receive the parcel today?

Now when I visit a site that allows me to send online SMSes, I would like to have my words "convert" to text speak:
Are you going to receive the parcel today?
would become
Ru gng 2 rcve the parcel 2day?
Then, when I have finished with that site, I would like AutoCorrect to revert back to its normal spell checking ability.

Am I asking too much or can this be done?
I actually have no idea how to do it so hope someone can give a working solution.

Post New Requests Here / Auto Correct like in MS Word
« on: April 04, 2007, 10:41 AM »
I just realised that although I don't always use Word to type documents, it would be great to have the AutoCorrect feature available for anytime I am typing.
e.g. if I type "doesn;t", then AHK would change it to "doesn't".
Has anyone created anything like this?

I have this in an AHK script which starts when I load Windows:

Is there anyway to "extract" the autocorrect list in Word and use that in the AHK script or is there a better way to do this than just adding a list of words like I have done?
Thanks very much.

I have exported my contacts into a plain text file and would like to apply a "mask" to certain numbers from certain countries so that they are in a uniform/set pattern e.g:
Below are three USA numbers with different pattern to their numbers.
+1 234 5678901
I would like the numbers to end up looking uniformly in the format +c-aaa-nnn-nnnn so the result would be:

Below are three UK numbers with different pattern to their numbers.
+44 790 123 4567
I would like the numbers to end up looking uniformly in the format +cc-aaaa-nnnnnn so the result would be:

Is there a coding snack that could accomplish this on a text file with numbers in them?
The reason I ask is because my number formatting goes for a loop depending on whether I edit the number in Outlook, on the phone or PDA. If I synchronise, it may be correct on the phone but then the computer contacts either lose some dashes or get spaces added instead of dashes. I know the numbers and dashes don't make a difference on a phone when dialling, but it makes it easier for me to read either on the phone, PDA or computer.
Can anyone help rescue my from my contacts formatting (or lack thereof) nightmare...?

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Export Outlook Express contacts as VCF
« on: December 28, 2006, 08:43 AM »
I am trying to export my Windows Address Book (WAB file) so that all of the 400+ entries will be exported as separate VCF files. Outlook Express (v6.00.2900) will not allow me to export all of them as VCF at one time.
I have a very crude macro (see below) that exports each entry and then deletes that entry. I get it to repeat for the amount of entries in the WAB.
Can anyone help me with a much better intuitive way to export my WAB as:
1) Separte VCF files and
2) One combines VCF file (with all the 400+ entries as one VCF file)
WinWait, Address Book - (C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Desktop\wab.WAB), T&ype name or select
IfWinNotActive, Address Book - (C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Desktop\wab.WAB), T&ype name or select, WinActivate, Address Book - (C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Desktop\New Folder\wab.WAB), T&ype name or select
WinWaitActive, Address Book - (C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Desktop\wab.WAB), T&ype name or select
Loop 400
    Send, {ALTDOWN}f{ALTUP}eb
    Send, {ALTDOWN}s{ALTUP}
    Send, {ALTDOWN}f{ALTUP}d
    Send, {ALTDOWN}y{ALTUP}
Thanks very much.

Thanks Mouser!
Will have a look at the program. Am I actually able to highlight text and r-click on it and convert to the different case options or only ny selecting your icon in the System tray area.
Thanks very much for any help!

Post New Requests Here / Highlight text and convert case
« on: November 17, 2006, 11:14 AM »
Not sure if anyone has done this but there are times I need to highlight text and convert it quickly to:
lower case
UPPER case
Sentence case
Title Case
Instead of me having to create a Word document, paste the text and then change the case format from within there, is there a quick way I can do this by r-clicking on the highlighted text and choosing one of these options?
Thanks very much.

The little .exe helps a lot! :D
Thanks very much!!!

Reason for needing this is because many times I need to sort photos on a SD card for a PDA and the PDA does not always sort alphabetically. If it does (and then I add a new pic to the card), the new pic is at the bottom of the card list instead of where it should be alphabetically.

Post New Requests Here / Re: Rename files with incremental timestamp
« on: October 24, 2006, 05:03 AM »
Thanks very much for the link. I had a look at BR but do not see how I can increment time values on the filename extension.
Anyone able to help me solve this please as I am stuck.

I have files in a folder with different names sorted (alphabetically).
I would like the file names' time and date stamps to be re-written so
that each are 1 minute older than the previous alphabetically named one
alan.jpg - 18:24am 25/12/2003
bob.jpg - 9:03am 01/04/2001
craig.jpg - 13:54am 12/12/2006

would become

alan.jpg - 10:12am 23/10/2006
bob.jpg - 10:13am 23/10/2006
craig.jpg - 10:14am 23/10/2006

Is there an utility that can accomplish this? I want the time/date stamp
to apply to the created | modified | accessed of the file.
Thanks very much.
