Find And Run Robot / Re: A unified FARR / Launcher Interface Proposal
« on: December 09, 2006, 01:46 PM »
I really like the idea !!
i really like your avatar !!
just kidding ok?  :Thmbsup:

count me in for support on the "company merging" too.
is the first nontroppo screenshot of farr possible already? i mean the 3 column app list and the custom font separator captions. that would be a good addition to lbc.

i haven't played with farr a lot yet, but globally speaking and by reading the posts on this thread, i would still like the systray icon to invoke the bar (lbc+farr) docked or floating and hiding after launch along with a shortcut key option (i don't use them 'cause i lack several brain "nodes" and i tend to forget the key combinations).

according to nontroppo "imaginary screenshot, i think" there could be also the option for icons on right and typing on left or the inverse. if you want your icons centered or justified, your're bummed out. unless there's another line below just for typing and history button, maybe.

if i'm rambling, just ignore me. i'm just a n00b.

while i agree with chip mccann, i understand this feature might be difficult to implement.
as far as i'm concerned, i would make use of that feature not only to start a number of programs when blc is started but also to start others when blc exits.

pstart has that feature (in each link properties it has the option to autorun on application launch, exit, both or none) and let me give you an example: when i start pstart i also autorun a batch file importing registry keys or registring a dll for additional windows explorer right click context menu. when i exit, it autoruns a batch file cleaning those registry keys or unregistring the same dll, so i leave no traces on that machine.

if you set an application to autorun when pstart runs, it works ok too (i have a clipboard utility which when started, stays quiet in the systray so it doesn't even bother me with a window) but when i close pstart it only has the option to autorun the program again. you can't "unregister" the program like you unregister a dll, so an additional option would be to terminate process x (CLCL.exe in the case of the clipboard utility) when pstart exits.
unless there's a way to terminate a process with a batch file which i'm not aware of.

anyway, like i said, i understand this may be difficult to implement and i know you're making a great effort to make this program better, mouser. :)

in the end, i can say a batch file would do very well and i think this is not a mandatory feauture. these are just my thoughts.

LaunchBar Commander / Re: Aligning the icons - center
« on: December 09, 2006, 11:46 AM »
cranioscopical, try typing "align icons" at google. there's a couple programs called "align icons" which install new align features to the right button context menu on the desktop. this is the most quickly and accurately you can get.
not sure if it does exactly what you want, tho.

to mouser, i found a bug concerning the docked bar.
the bar pic i posted was done on a 1280x1024 resolution screen in win xp. when i opened it in 1024x768 resolution in win2000 it only shows the first icon, like the image posted below.
now, it may be beacuse i used a lot of spaces in icon captions and the last icon got off screen.
doesn't it wrap automatically? and why doesn't it show all icons *but* the one who got cut off?
don't think the operating system matters.

can anyone confirm this? thanks.

i hope for that option too.
in the meanwhile, there's a work-around to justify (not center) your buttons.

just chose the "labels under icons" option and type in, like 5 spaces, depending on the length of ur bar, for every button.
trial and error until the last button is as close to the right edge as the first button is to the left.

if you decide to type in button labels just do the same:
