Re: Limited to 3 images?

Fair enough. Since I was able to put the fourth image into a separate post, it's not a big deal.

Limited to 3 images?

I've spent some time writing documentation on how to run my script as a scheduled task. I had no trouble with the first three images, but I'm not able to add a fourth -- I ended up putting it into a separate comment. Is there a hard limit of 3 images per post? Total attachment size?

Image of the Task Scheduler window

This shows an image of the Task Scheduler window, with some details of a relatively long list of command-line options to control how the script runs.
Inside a spoiler to reduce the footprint of the message for those who aren't interested.

Directions for setting up to run on a schedule

Here are the directions for setting up the "nagger" up to run as scheduled tasks, with diagrams. I'm doing this in Windows 8.1, but the process should be very similar for any Windows version. Open up the Task Scheduler on your computer. You can do this from the Windows Control Panel . Select one of ...

"Go to bed!" nagger/reminder v. 3.1

Version 3.1: "$TIME" in the message text will be converted to show the current time as hours and minutes; "$TIME_S" will display hours, minutes, and seconds. I've found that seeing the display of seconds can be counterproductive, as it makes the text "interesting" and lets me count down to when the ...

"Go to bed!" nagger/reminder v. 3.0

This is version 3.0, with a couple of further enhancements. Any instances of the string "`n" in the message text will be converted to line breaks. Any instances of the string "$TIME" will be converted to the current time. For example, message text "Go to bed!`n$TIME" would be drawn as something like...

Re: WinMaximize unreliable: dragging during maximizing

I'm not following you. In my original report, I was seeing the problem in the SetTimer version but not in the Loop with a delay. With this newer small script, I see the problem with both SetTimer and Loop versions.

Re: WinMaximize unreliable: dragging during maximizing

I am not sure, if I would really expect WinMaximize to work while the specific window is dragged - but then again, I never encountered this case before. I wouldn't expect WinMaximize to work while the window was being dragged; if the dragging was still going on, the window would immediately un-maxi...

Re: WinMaximize unreliable: dragging during maximizing

Getting back to my original report, there's the odd behaviour that the WinMaximize worked just fine when the function it was in was being called from a loop in the main thread, but not when that same function was being called from a SetTimer call. Working on exactly the same windows both times.

Re: WinMaximize unreliable: dragging during maximizing

Is that what the docs actually mean by that phrase? It seems counter-intuitive, as almost any window can be dragged.

Re: WinMaximize unreliable: dragging during maximizing

Oh, and if the WinMaximize is replaced by the appropriate PostMessage command, i.e. Run, Notepad.exe WinWait, Untitled - Notepad, , 120 Loop, 60 { PostMessage, 0x112, 0xF030,,, WinTitle, WinText ; 0x112 = WM_SYSCOMMAND, 0xF030 = SC_MAXIMIZE Sleep, 1000 } the script behaves as it should. Mod's note :...

Re: WinMaximize unreliable: dragging during maximizing

By the way, this is the same problem that I reported last week. Which was blown off as obviously being a bug in my code, and not worth trying to reproduce following the actual steps I'd taken to cause the bug to manifest.

WinMaximize unreliable: dragging during maximizing

Here's a simple example: Run, Notepad.exe WinWait, Untitled - Notepad, , 120 Loop, 60 { WinMaximize, Untitled - Notepad Sleep, 1000 } It creates a Notepad window, then should maximize that window every second for one minute. While it's running, drag the window by its title bar around the screen; thi...

Re: Recent spam, forum problems and some background information Topic is solved

Okay, removing the link to my previous script version -- on this site -- allowed me to post my message. Thanks!

Would it be possible to make an exception to the no-links rule for links to this site? Or are those still problematic?

WinMaximize fails with timer

I've been referred here from the Bug Reports forum. I'm looking at adding some enhancements to my "Go to bed!" nagger and have run across a case in which the WinMaximize command appears to fail when the function that includes it is called from a thread set up by SetTimer , but not when the same func...

Re: WinMaximize fails with timer

I'm not asserting that it always fails. But it fails in this case, when the only apparent difference is which thread it's called from.

Re: WinMaximize fails with timer

A bit more data: Adding a Sleep, 100 call right after the WinMaximize call doesn't make a difference. That is, it's not that the WinMaximize is getting "cut off" (so to speak) by the end of the timed function. Nor does adding a second WinMaximize call affect the behaviour.
