Re: XP Luna Shutdown Dialog for Windows 10

thanks for the detailed explanation, sounds like a great reason to me (and i love passion projects especially with nostalgia) in my screensaver I'm able to read that file without issue and without admin rights, which should mean you can copy it to a temp folder where you have write access and then r...

Re: XP Luna Shutdown Dialog

very cool, can i ask why?

unless things have changed since 7, look for a file TranscodedWallpaper.jpg that you can backup and restore

Re: EitherMouse 0.8 - Multiple mice, individual settings...

Thanks for the feedback... There is some misbehaving with RDP and VNC connections because of the way the window is accepting input and passing it along to the remote session. The best workaround I've found has been to actually revert back to the method I used in v0.1 of swapping mouse buttons, via h...

Re: Wait for accessibilityId

i don't have an answer for your question, but maybe solve your problem a different way

i think there is a wmic way and a powershell way, but i think this is still supported:

Code: Select all

Run, rasdial vpnname
sleep, 30000
Run, rasdial vpnname /disconnect

Re: How to improve reescaled photos on a gui?

I would recommend using the GDI+ library (gdip.ahk, or gdip_all.ahk) directly and avoiding the resample.dll altogether if all its doing is GDI+ anyway. Gdip_SetInterpolationMode(G, 7) will give pretty good results, but I would try the other interpolation modes 2,3,4,6 and compare

Re: Mouse move randomly when script is not running

you mentioned you made sure that your compiled script wasn't running, but check if "AutoHotkey.exe" is also running by chance and if so, end it

nevermind, if you restarted and its still doing it then I agree it must be some other software or hardware

Re: Dynamic variables Topic is solved

going back to your original method, Tech%ServiceW%++ doesn't really make sense (what does the ++ apply to?)

you probably want this instead:

Code: Select all

ServiceW++
Tech%ServiceW%
your variable names will always begin with the text "Tech" this way...

Re: Navigate between Bookmarks in MS Word

nice, thanks for sharing i would have assumed the order of the bookmarks would be the order created since word doesn’t give you an option to reorder them if this is unpredictable you could iterate through them all and use Bookmark.Range.Start to find the one closest to your current cursor position o...

Re: Compass - Measure angles and scale distances with your mouse

Everyone is different, but I learn by trying to accomplish tasks and then improving piece by piece. This isn't a very basic task, so start with something basic that you waste time doing (like maybe writing the same email every week or filling out a form every visit). The Ask for Help forum will be u...

Thats the real problem with aggressive false positives, people are now clicking through and accepting on things without even thinking about it because you have to do the same thing for clearly legitimate programs! grr

Re: Compass - Measure angles and scale distances with your mouse

my advice would be to learn to use AutoHotkey, all of that should be possible but its very niche/unique end user base so you’re never going to get the customizability you would if you understand a few basic things the code is doing it and tweak away from there as for your ideas, all seem useful for ...

Re: Compass - Measure angles and scale distances with your mouse

yeah I agree its probably managing startup and shutdown of GDI+ a little more carefully, I havent had a chance to dig into it yet.

I will keep adding to this functionality and share what I like, its already proved useful on two machined parts today!

Re: Compass - Measure angles and scale distances with your mouse

I was also playing around with the crosshair before you click once ctrl+alt is held: add to script: ^Alt:: Compass.Crosshair() Return add to class: Crosshair() { if (this.Lines.MaxIndex() < 1) { ; If there are no existing lines, start GDIP this.GetWinArea() this.GDIP_Start() this.GDIP_Setup() } Coor...

Replace the static variables with this (mainly add a Cross variable, I set some defaults how I'd want): static Color1 := 0x55000000, Color2 := 0x990066ff, Lineweight1 := 1 , ScaleFactor := 1., Units := "pixels", Snap := true, Cross := 20 and replace this function: GDIP_DrawLine(StartX, CurrentX, Sta...

Re: Compass - Measure angles and scale distances with your mouse

Thanks. Oh yeah true, well the screen seemed too cluttered after 10 anyway... I might mess around with drawing the dimension inline with the actual line via gdip and ditch the tooltip altogether. Also I added crosshairs and separate X and Y dimensions, just because its useful for machined part drawi...

Re: Compass - Measure angles and scale distances with your mouse

use win+p or another method to toggle to single monitor mode and then launch it, that should tell you if its a multi monitor issue or something else pretty quickly

also set your dpi scaling to 100%, another possible culprit

nice update, small bug: when snap is on, the second line created moves the endpoint of the previous line to its unsnapped position for me some trivial changes, i removed the msgbox and let it add up to 10 lines to the screen before deleting, or deleting on Esc::, this is very cool and useful, thanks...

SyncToy and many other folder syncing utilities appear to use it in the background if I'm not mistaken
