"Deal-A-Day" Sites

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

A couple years ago a friend of mine got me into checking out "One Deal a Day" sites such as Woot and SlickDeals. The list has since grown to include 22 sites, plus several News sites, plus (of course!) this forum, and I found that I despised moving back and forth among all the IE tabs. I came up with this relatively simple embedded IE GUI that allows for switching back and forth more quickly. You may need to adjust resolution, as mine is set pretty high.
 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
Global $myGUI = GUICreate("Deal A Day Sites", 1915, 1024, 1, 1,$WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_VISIBLE + $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN)

As I mentioned, unless you're running at 1900 x 1080, it'll definitely need some tweaking ;)

I tried it, it is pretty cool. However, even though I adjusted the resolution to 1600x1200, there are 2 small problems: the buttons on the far right (whatever is to the right of "Easy Street Deals") go off the screen and there is a wide margin at the bottom of the screen that would be better put to use by the browser.

Not a bad idea. I run 1920x1080, so it looked perfect on my screen.

However, you missed a deal site: http://www.bitsdujour.com/


RAID Calculator | Software Installer

The truth has been suppressed since the dawn of time.

Yes, I miss that one ;) The network I am on lately does not allow some sites, so I had to trim the list.

Why us modify it...??? You can add a menu,option or sth else i dont know, with screen resolution so simple users can modify it by them selfs without having to edit ur script or you can simply add scrollbars...

It's ur script not ours. Anyway gl

For someone who "didn't find it very interesting" you sure are hanging around a lot on this thread :D If it is not your cup of tea, so be it. Wander elsewhere.

Why not have the program poll what the current deal is on each website and display them on a GUI instead of having to go through and manually look at each one?
