ProcessKill - My FARR2 Plugin Contest Submission #4

(1/4) > >>


Hey jgpaiva, this one is for you :)

This plugin displays a list of active processes and allows user to kill the selected process. Should work on 2K/XP/Vista.  Haven't tried on the 9x systems.  Actually haven't tested it much at please report bugs.

It's actually pretty simple to do by following this article: A Safer Alternative to TerminateProcess()
Thought about extracting the icons from the EXE instead of showing a generic one for all processes, but the SDK currently only allow icons by filenames.  So I would have to save all icons to disk and pass them to the host (kind of troublesome).  EDIT: DONE, thanks to mouser's suggestion!

Extract the zip file to the farr2 plugins directory then reload the plugins from the plugins listing screen.

Thanks to hamradio for the beautiful icons!!!!  :-*

taichi, try returning the full path to the target exe as your custom icon name.

Sweet!! I shall try that, thanks.

Ok seems to be a tad bit slower when extracting the icons though (with +sall), so I made it an option.  :Thmbsup:

Amazing!!!!  :eusa_dance: :eusa_dance: :eusa_dance:
It works great :D Credits on the way ;)

Mouser: isn't there a way for a plugin to show it's results with "+sall"?
I only have farr to show 10 results, but that's obviously too less for this plugin.
