Script Ideas (Community Contributions)

I'm creating and maintaining a list of ideas to use as inspiration for the AutoHotkey community in the creation of new scripting projects.

Please consider sharing any ideas that you haven't had the time or motivation to bring to fruition. If there's an existing application that you think could be made better by the AutoHotkey community, please share these as well.

This topic is intended to act as a collection of ideas and thoughts in the same vein as the previous "Brainstorming/Wish List" topics that have either been abandoned or live on the older archived forum.

Current Ideas:
01) Manage the Windows recycle bin from an icon in the taskbar's notification tray. TheDewd
02) Retrieve text under the mouse cursor from any window/dialog jNizM

Manage the Windows recycle bin from an icon in the taskbar's notification tray.

Allow custom menu-items for cleaning software (CCleaner, etc...)
Support automatic emptying of the recycle bin at a specified time interval.

Exactly! The author claims to have written his application using "C++ with WTL", and directs users to the following link to learn more about his process of capturing the text: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/oldnew ... 0/?p=39663

I've added this to the list in the first post.

AutoHotkey's Variables and their contents: improvement
Two items I'd like to see:
• Inclusion of a search box (Variable name or content) (I have too many global vars, let's call it legacy code of inexperience)
• Ability to view object contents (Perhaps a clickable link?)
View object contents
Search in AHK

the text from standard Windows MessageBox'es can already by copied by a simple CTRL+C even though its not a text field, so the vid for Textify is a poor demo

anyway, i believe jethrow already has an Active Accessibility script for AHK so based on that msdn blog, that program shouldn't be difficult to duplicate
