Work Log GUI Works on Linux!!!
Today I decided to test the gui 0.9 on linux (Ubuntu 12.10) using wine (if you don't have wine type sudo apt-get install wine)

Simply download and extract the zip then right click WorkLogGui.exe and choose
"Open With Wine Windows Program Loader"

Now you can log your time on the cworklog.com cloud using Linux AND Windows
Drawbacks
 - the javascript engine does not work, thus making these things not work and useless:
 - Automatic-login,
 - the pop up menu calling Start and Stop time log useless
 - The pop up asking for specific time log notes to not pop up (you'll have to log your notes using time_log_show.php

Everyone: A new version of the GUI Client has been released 0.9 with a security fix. Please update immediately as there was a problem passing the username and password through the $_GET string allowing log files to contain it.

http://cworklog.com/...orkLogGUI.latest.zip



minor notes from today so far:
# close to tray should be default setting for an app like this imo
Hmm, I'll need more feedback to justify changing the default.
# I get a tray-popup after 30 seconds idle time [after two minutes inactivity it automatically stops the timer] - this is too soon imo, I find it pops up more often than I want and considering the (default?) two min limit on inactivity I think it would be better at the half-way (one minute) mark
Yeah i was always wondering about this, i just kind of got used to it personally, how about at the 75% mark?

# I right-clicked the app and added login details to prefs - I didnt get to see any image at any stage of the procedure. I prefer this myself :up: it's a functional app, you just want to log-in and work.
Of course... I dont want any non-mini pages showing up either. :)
# if you login in the initial window (rather than via prefs) does it offer to save the login details? If not, that would be a logical addition.
Good idea! i'll implement that in the next version
# ticking noise is nice but too subtle I find. I barely notice it unless the volume is quite high. (Volume currently @ 20 here - I can hear other stuff mostly quite well at that volume.) I got used to it :up:

Yeah it's nice because it lets you know it is still running and you are still "at work"
But on another note, if you want to change the sound just go to the /sounds directory and copy another sound file with the same file name. If you find a good one maybe i'll include it in the next release!



Gui Future Updates
Instead of wrapping the website in a mini web browser, I want to get a real web service for cworklog.com allowing development on other operating systems very easy. What do you all think?

Ok, contact has been made and I have confirmed that this happens on machines where IE 8 is installed, I dont know about IE 7 or IE 6, but IE 9 produces no such error.

The problem has been fixed in version 0.897 which can be gotten here:
 http://cworklog.com/.../WorkLogGui_0897.zip
or the latest can always be gotten at
  http://cworklog.com/...orkLogGUI.latest.zip
(in case this post gets out of date)

A note to everyone else: Can anyone with Windows please try out the client-side GUI. It has amazing features such as auto-stop-logging when idle
All of your work logs are the same, whether using the GUI or using the website.


on that same note, if you have an android or iphone please do try http://cworklog.com

Can i watch you try this live? my email is

contact made

EDIT/ @relipse - I suspect we're on different timezones -
you can see from my PM icon whether I'm online or not
(heading off shortly)

Ok, contact has been made and I have confirmed that this happens on machines where IE 8 is installed, I dont know about IE 7 or IE 6, but IE 9 produces no such error.

That being said, it is only a pop up message and does not affect the rest of the software, so you can still use it, But I will get to the bottom of this.

Your link diverts to my worklogs ?

Forgot to say:
I'm on an admin account but I have UAC at the highest level.

I use a clipboard manager to remember/paste the password.
I repasted it in prefs and restarted the app after:

Running as admin makes no difference.

When I start, I see the minimal window with login fields & button - the fields are now filled.
It seems to try to login -but I dont really know- there is a pause anyway, and then I get the error about the file.
Then I see the image as per your post #21

I am then able to login manually no problem

Exactly the same if I run as admin or not.

The only other machine I have here is Win 8 - I can try that tomorrow to compare.

Can i watch you try this live? my email is <my-dc-username>@gmail.com

Thanks,
Jim

After I add my login details to preferences, this is what I see on start up:
 (see attachment in previous post)
(should it not log me in automatically?)

Ok, after you add your login credentials to the Preferences -> Server tab, you need to close the program and re-open it.

If you see the main website coming up in the mini browser that means there is an error.
Basically the app loads a minified version of the website seen here: http://cworklog.com/index.php?mobile=1
If the login screen does not look like that, then perhaps the credentials are incorrect.

What I am concerned about is the file not found error. Did you try running the app as administrator?
Is your account a guest account or anything?

Ok I fixed as many bugs as I can as well as have the new design partially implemented

When I look in settings, my name and password are already saved (I didnt add them there manually - maybe they were picked up from the ini file).

The password is slightly encrypted so modifying the ini file will not work directly (for the password). However, the other fields can be changed perfectly fine. The Preferences reads from the INI file yes, so that is why there is already some text there.

I'm using IE8 still ... but I do have an idea what might be causing the focus problem (will test tomorrow without the possibly-suspect app).


The focus problem is fixed, I just need to upload to the server for you to see changes.
Thanks again for all your help

Work Log Timer

The system cannot find the file specified.

As far as this error is concerned, if you run the .exe as an Administrator, do you still get this problem?
I am still trying to figure out why it would fail.

Hi Jim

I dont think the first error is permissions - I have it in
C:\Portable\WorkLogGui
got the same error from
F:\Temp\WorkLogGui
(I also tried it with the "_0887" at the end of the folder name with no difference.)

Should the ini file store my username and password? It doesnt automatically.
I added them manually - now I get the screen like first image in OP, but I'm not logged in nor are my details aren't filled in.

Before that I didnt get any image - just the two fields and a login button.

The only way to store your username and password is to go to the Server tab in Preferences, you have to save it THERE first (simply logging in will not do it)

I think you are using a later version of IE which complains about a focusing issue that I used to have (the time log notes used to be visible) I fixed this, but am working on some other stuff before I upload the changes

When I click stop (and add comment) the GUI reverts to showing 'Start' but does not reflect the work just done in the time/cost shown.
When I click Start again - it then shows the work that was done in the previous stint.

Yeah this has annoyed me for quite a while but I never went ahead and fixed it, thanks
it is on the list.

As far as the other errors, the app needs to create/modify the ini file so if you don't have proper permissions that could mess it up. I have mine running from my c drive (something like c:\utility\cpp\worklog\) so I haven't had any problems yet (I too am on Windows 7)


Be sure to try out using the hotkey Alt-` to start/stop and auto-idle-time detection , that is one reason I have been using the windows version instead of the pure web version
Jim

Also as far as the script error can you help me reproduce it?

Yes the app is just a client wrapper to the website, look in the preferences section under Server -> Base URL to make sure it is pointed to http://cworklog.com/

Yeah F5 isn't friends with the timer pop up window. Check to see if there are entries in the time log

hi relipse
I'm trying the website :)

1) When I try to open the timer (clock icon) in a new tab (via the context menu) I just get another instance of the main window.
I dont like popups because I tend to forget them - I use FF with session saver - and if I close the window and the popup is in the back, session saver no longer remembers the tabs in the window I just closed...


I went ahead and fixed this, you should be able to right click and open in new tab or window, but a pop up window works the best (callbacks etc)

yeah i'm not sure what i was thinking about when i created the "actual hours" feature
just sort of a verification of how much you worked what you want to bill for.
Personally I just copy the calculated hours directly over there at the end of the week.

Looks very nice. It doesn't seem to want to accept input in the actual hours field. I'll enter a number, but it always reverts back to 0. I've tried hitting enter and tabbing out of the field but neither seems to work. Editing start and stop times also seems to be a problem. I doubleclick as directed but nothing happens. Probably just something I don't understand how to do.

I'm using Firefox 16.0.2


This problem is fixed, it happened because mysql in windows is NOT case sensitive and i accidentally had a capital L in my database name. In linux this failed as an invalid table.

Thank you so much for testing this out for me.

Likewise with the Price Rate field - I'm unable to change this for a log.
The number remains the same and I get the message:
'no work log found'

I logged out and in again to make sure my work log was really there (it's still there!).


Wow, I just check this, this is a serious problem (it doesn't happen on my localhost but it does on cworklog.com for some reason)

Update: This problem has been fixed, i had a captial L in my table name and my windows box didn't detect it, but my linux hosting server did.
Thank you

Yes, this is due to the onclick="" mechanism. Right now it only works for a pop up window, but allowing it to work in a tab is a good idea. Thanks



2) I'm unable to delete a company - keeps going from the second confirmation dialogue back to the first.

Thank you for the bug submission, I just indeed fixed this and uploaded a new delete.php. Please try it again
