Long time no post - the forum has changed a lot since I was last here! Hope you are all ok.
Anyway, the reason I'm here is because I'm writing a program that needs to post a Tweet to a Twitter account. I am using the >Twitter UDF, which I have already adapted slightly so that once a user has logged in once the username and password is not need because the OAuth token and OAuth token secret is stored and used again, rather than regenerating a them each time the program is launched. However, since the UDF was last updated Twitter has updated their API and retired the use of XML so now the response is only given in JSON.
Fortunately, to get the UDF tweeting again it was simply a case of changing the URL that the data was POSTed to. However, because IE doesn't actually render/display JSON files, whenever the data is sent a File Download dialog appears asking to download the JSON file that is returned.
Does anyone know a way around this to stop the dialog appearing, other than sending a keypress when the window is detected?
Thanks in advance
I have created / registered a twitter app and have generated customer keys and access token, but unable to understand how to use it. I have assumed that using the access token it would be possible to login into twitter without using the necessary web-browser based auth - This is presently being provided by sean's twitter udf.
The reason is that I am working on a cli based application and is being used for automation purposes.
I also wanted to know
1: Whether it would be possible to use curl udf to connect to twitter (oAuth) without using a username/password.
All I need is your guidance on this in the right direction.
Using the iTunes COM interface this script monitors the currently playing song within iTunes. If that song is not rated the GUI will pop-up allowing you to easily rate the song.
I'm working on a new project and I need help with the GUI code.
I rely on iTunes song ratings for managing my iPhone/iPod library. My iTunes library is too large to sync to a mobile device so I only sync my favorite songs. This obviously requires the songs to be rated. I've been rating the songs in my library for a couple years, but I'm still only a quarter of the way through. The biggest problem is that I get busy and forget to rate the songs as they are playing. I searched the web for a solution and found this. It monitors your playing tracks and if the current track is not rated it prompts you to rate it. Unfortunately it is only for OS X.
I downloaded the latest iTunes COM documentation and started writing code. I've written most of the core code, but I fail when it comes to building GUIs. I do not like the dropdown style rating used by the Rate Me! Rate Me! script. I'd prefer a control where you could click any star to change the rating. I've created transparent images for each; 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 stars.
The album art will either be in JPG, PNG, or BMP format.
This is a Photoshop example of the GUI with no rating:

Anyone interested in helping?
