I would use your color picker instead of the windows, if i get to know how to use it properly
Once again thanks NegativeNrG, if you cannot understand something that is mentioned in the help dialogs, or something I didn't think of is missing, don't hesitate to ask me.
I've just updated some of the programs & links mentioned in the first post (above).
Basically I discovered an icon error for the RGBColor Selector program, when being used in 98/ME, which I don't use much anymore - but glad on this occasion that I did, because I discovered the error, before anyone reported it.
The bug in the Icon Browser program, was again only in the 98/ME environment, but of a more serious nature, this too has been fixed (and added above). Radio button & path issue, etc.
I forgot to add, that the Icon Browser program, also has a right-click context menu SendTo option, which works a treat on any file you want to check for icons - the installer version sets this up, but it is easy to do for the other version to - just create a shortcut in your windows SendTo folder.
Another issue with the Icon Browser program, that Lazycat has brought to my attention, is that the drag and drop feature it came with originally, seems to be broken ... when time permits, I will look into this - though that is not a feature I tend to use myself ... I find SendTo more intuitive.
I have another program that I use all the time, but which I hesitate to add here?
It is a 'Projects Backup
' program, that I created back in June 2005, which I find indespensable. The problem is, though I last updated it in September, it still needs lots of work to make it perfect.I know it's faults, and quite easily work my way round them - it saves me an immense amount of trouble and time. I hesitate to add it, especially for issues that might upset newbies, but also because of the way it got updated each time - as new ideas came along, and as I found better methods, and my general programming improved. It is a little clunky and messy, with I think redundant sections of code - it badly needs a rewrite, and version incrementation needs improving. The problem with updating it, is that it is already effective in what it does, and so I always put it off in preference to newer projects ... however the urge is getting stronger. If anyone feels a real strong desire to get this program, then if I get enough requests, I will upload it ... just be aware of it's nature - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! It is also reliant on one of the betas available at that time - non-compiled of course.
A rough synopsis of what the program does, is -
1) only works on right-click folder SendTo - though you can modify some settings if you just run it.
2) it stores last version updates for all projects, you have backed up - but also looks at folder names.
3) you can do some renaming to existing backups.
4) Beta numbers are automatically incremented, but full version and points need to be done manually from within the program.
5) You can increment, overwrite or replace backups.
6) Each project can be backed up to it's own location - though mine are all in sub-folders in the one main location.
7) Each backup goes to it's own incremetal folder name folder.
8) There is no checking to see if any or all files are the same, so whether a project needs backing up or not, is dependant on your memory - I've rarely had an issue with this, as I backup or overwrite at the end of every session.
9) There is a combo list of all projects.
10) Occasionally I have to edit the ini file, if I want to change something the program can't, or to just get around it's current limits.
11) There is no auto-backup. This is because it is not a general backup program, it is purely for those into programming or creating many versions of the same thing.
12) It does not work with dates or times ... though this may be added later.
13) An option allows opening the destination folder after backup, this is for visual or editing needs.
Basically I use this program to regularly backup all my AutoIt projects.
