KindEbook Wishlist and the other programs are now being updated at a new topic - KindEbook Suite Formerly known as KindEbook Price Query. Please read IMPORTANT ADVICE here at Post #57. (9th May 2016) Reading some sections of the previous topic could be helpful. There is also a Disclaimer reference etc. OLDER DOWNLOADS Screenshots in second post. See Post #51 for information about the Bonus program (AZWPlug). See Post #96 for Instructions & Screenshots for Bonus program (Add Book & All Formats To Calibre). (11-12-2017) KindEbook Wishlist updated to v5.8 Added a 'Both' option to the Search category dropdown, though it only works for selection display, plus copy to clipboard with the new clipboard button. Star button relocated to left of selection display (input) field, with the new clipboard button taking its prior location at right. NOTE - This now provides a quick easy way to copy Author &/or Title text for the selected entry, to the clipboard. Added a 'Simple' option to the Search category dropdown, which justs finds the specified text in the chosen column (Title or Author), and selects that row. Search starts at the selected entry and will wrap around at need. The Clipboard button, can now be set in the program settings (or used with CTRL), to minimize the program window when clicked. Moved the right-click 'Save the Ebook list to file' option to a sub-menu entry, and added a 'Save to List for Excel' option there to, which is mostly just for my specific personal use, but others might find it useful (includes SHIFT+X accelerator key usage). NOTES - This new feature assists me, when I want to add new entries to my Booklist.xls file (in batch mode). It just helps to quickly create the basic entries, which I then flesh out later at my leisure, and helps avoid a lot of repetitive clicking. Used in conjunction with my related Excel macros. Add Book & All Formats To Calibre updated to v1.7 (NOTE - This has only been tested with calibre v2.x.x, not the newer v3.x.x.) A bugfix for duplicate title issue - I had not realized that a failure due to a duplicate was based solely on a title match. All duplicates are now added unless an ID match occurs. VIEW button can now view a saved specified format. (30-11-2017) KindEbook Wishlist updated to v5.5 Improved the Copy/Move input box dimensions, to more easily accommodate long titles. Mode for troubleshooting (me only) has been improved, to avoid me losing my sanity again (I'd forgotten it even existed). Replaced the (last version update) new CTRL option at program start, with a 5 second dialog prompt instead. (11-11-2017) AZWPlug updated to v2.8 Database list can now be set not to display when starting that window, plus a LOAD button added to load that list when desired. CTRL used with the open Kindle Content folder button, will now close the program. If CTRL used when selecting the MODE on the Results window, it will just save the setting without making changes to existing results. Option added for slicker loading of list, plus alternate list lines are now pale pink. Two find options added for the Author and Title, with FIND jumping to each entry found and SHOW just displaying all found. NOTE - With LOAD deselected, the list will only show the added ebook title (if any). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- KindEbook Wishlist - Most controls get disabled now during a Query, plus the same occurs during an 'Exchange Rate Query'. Plus if 'Please Wait' splash is disabled for Query, then a splash is no longer shown during an 'Exchange Rate Query', with that text shown instead in both the 'Please Wait' and 'Timer' labels, which are temporarily unhidden for that purpose. The Timer label can also be reshown if hidden by the new feature, by clicking the FIND label. Mouse cursor now changes during Query and Ebook list loading etc, to indicate when busy working. Extended the 'Please Wait' label to loading & sorting the Ebooks list, which also applies to any other process that re-populates or changes number of list entries (ebook removal, changing user, relocating bought, etc). Those are all dependent on the "Use a flashing 'Please Wait' ..." setting being set. NOTE - This feature was added to this and the previous version, so that having a 'Please Wait' splash displayed on top of all windows, for a lengthy period perhaps, could be avoided, if desired. Previous Versions (newer) Previous Versions (older) The KindEbook Wishlist, is basically a compliment to your regular store wishlist, but has a history element and allows you to check current and previous prices etc in a better, quicker and more organized fashion. Essentially it assists and hopefully improves with decision making, when it comes to determining whether to make a purchase yet or not. You could compare it to manually and painfully creating something like an Excel spreadsheet for the same purpose, without the time, complexity and pain involved. You can sort by Title, Author, Current Price, Lowest Price, Add Order, Favorites, etc. You can view details - Book Description, Price Changes, etc. You can open the ebook URL in your web browser, where you can elect to make the purchase. The program supports multiple users, shared titles, shared comments and private comments, etc. After purchase, an ebook can be relocated to a bought list (per user). Price can be queried on an individual title basis or ALL titles (starting at first or selected or only favorites or not favorites). Dates are recorded for most processes, with various reporting options. I call it a wishlist on steroids.
