[Updated - 0.3.3 beta] 7Peek

16 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

A new application just after 7Snap, which is almost abandoned. 7Peek will peek the windows like Windows 7 when you hover with your mouse the portion between the tray clock and Desktop edge (image below). Again, not open-sourcing it right now :D Maybe in future.

Here you should hover with mouse for window peeking :

Update comes with some improvements and also some new thins. It should work faster now :D

Changelog :

-7Peek disposes now all resources after windows peeking
-Maximized, minimized and non-visible windows no longer peek
-Windows no longer peek if you are not hovering the peeking area on your taskbar, whereever the taskbar is placed
-Windows no longer peek if your left mouse button is pressed while hovering the peeking area
-Optimized window drawing engine
-Optimized fade engine

Enjoy ! Criticism and suggestion are welcomed :D

Iuli.

scaning file...

clean - http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus

running...

It appears to work. Not quite as smoothe as the one built in, but it works.

I assume you get the handle of every window, then have something like

for $t = 255 to 0
    for $i = 1 to ubound($hwnd)
        winsettrans($hwnd[$i],$t)
    next
next

adding a step to the transparency loop that changes with the number of windows might help keep the fade effect short. With 7 windows it was pretty slow.

*Sigh* stop with the stupid virus scanners.

Since this is new it is totally useless to try to detect if it is malicious. I could write trojan write now and upload it that would fuck up your os for good that no scanner would pick up.

So please stop the scanner crap and either:

a) Run the exe in a VM or sandbox

:D Trust the OP

c) Leave this thread.

Easy as pie.

Some "stupid" av scanners also use sandbox techniques to find out whether it is malicious or not!

But I don't want to start here a discussion about the sense of av.

I thought it was worth to mention it (just an additional option)...

Apart from that I agree with you!

If i had sorce i would make it add a transparent window and draw the outlines on it so you get the same effect as win 7.

@billthecreator : I forgot that other people like the taskbar on top. I will add support for that in the next version.

@corgano : I'll try to make it even smoother. About creating as many GUIs, as visible windows are, that's process and memory consuming. And also, AutoIT will not let you create an array of GUIs (array of handles) directly.

Thanks for feedback and suggestions :D

I was able to come up with this:

#include <array.au3>
HotKeySet("{ESC}","foo")

Global $list = WinList()
;~ _ArrayDisplay($list)

while 1
    Local $pos = MouseGetPos()
    If $pos[0] > @DesktopWidth - 20 and $pos[1] > @DesktopHeight - 40 Then
;~      ToolTip("11111111111111111111111111111111111111111",0,0);errchecking for detetion
        fade(1)
        While 1
            $pos = MouseGetPos()
            If $pos[0] < @DesktopWidth - 20 Or $pos[1] < @DesktopHeight - 40 Then
                fade(0)
;~              ToolTip("222222222222222222222222222222222222222222",0,0);errchecking for detetion
                ExitLoop
            EndIf
            Sleep(100)
        WEnd
    EndIf
    sleep(100)
WEnd

Func foo()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func fade($t)
    Local $from, $to, $list = WinList()

    If $t = 1 Then
        $from = 255
        $to = 0
        $offset = 0
    Else
        $from = 0
        $to = 255
        $offset = 1
    EndIf

    For $trans = $from to $to
        For $i = 1 To UBound($list) - $offset
;~              WinSetTrans($list[$i][1],"",$trans)
        Next
    Next
EndFunc

Func onautoitexit();just in case....
    For $i = 1 To UBound($list)
        WinSetTrans($list[$i][1],"",255)
    Next
EndFunc

It IS NOT complete. It needs a way to tell which windows to make transparent (keeps doing it to taskbar and desktop, not good)

I just tried it. It looks great, but on XP i have a small problem: sometimes i get some flashing color stripes immediately before the windows fade.

No, it is not for Windows 7, but the demo video was made on 7, because that's the OS i use now.

That is because of the winsettrans() function. It sometimes does that when the trans is 255 and you set it to something lower.

Right click the taskbar and go to propities and uncheck the windows peek box, then hit ok and test it.
