WinClickPro - A GUI concept project for chaining AutoIt scripts

Recommended Posts

graydwarf

I wrote this power user tool a long while back and it originally had baked in commands and wasn't very extensible. I rewrote the tool and made use of the power and openeness of AutoIt. Some of you may find the concept and/or UI approach interesting (as well as useful) which is why I'm posting here. In all likely-hood, it could be rewritten entirely in AutoIt but that's not something I plan on doing. Good chance there are similar tools out there as well especially since I've sat on this for so long.

In short, the tool provides a snazzy user interface (no two interfaces will look alike) which opens right over whatever your working on so you can quickly launch any number of chained AutoIt scripts. My all-time favorite being; normalize clipboard text.

I haven't shared the tool or concept with anyone outside of publishing it so I'm curious to see what people think.

Very nifty tool. :)

One thing - changing the background color on the tile and the hover effects background color are not functional.

Thanks!

Did you remove the tile image? Background colors work on the layer under the tile images. Good call out though in terms of usability.

Yes, I did. :D

I did it on a new tile, removed the image and tried putting a green color on it, and it would just go back to the blue tile image.

Very cool though. ;)

Screenshot?

 

One thing is that no two UI's will look the same since its fully customizable. I captured a few rudimentary screenshots that do it no justice. I also added some additional comments with each image. I uploaded them to the main page on https://winclickpro.codeplex.com/.

Hrm. Is there any chance you confused the background image with the background hover effect image? Make sure to remove both images. Does anything happen when you hover the tile? If so, try removing hover effects and see if it gets you the expected behavior. If you can afford a little time for some repro steps, I'd love to look into it for you.

No worries, and yes I did confuse it and removed both. Then, added a background color, which worked, and a hover background color and it works!

Very nice, glad you were so attentive. ;)

      This is another take on string triggers, triggers on specific strings.
      Able to simple text pasting,
      opening links (as long as there's a www. http:\\ or https:\\ at the beggining)
      and is able to open applications.
      The user selects the modifier key, and then uses a combination of that key with a couple others to perform tasks like
      screenshot the active window, (modkey + prtscr), turn off the screen (modkey + pause / break),
      open clipboard string in registry (modkey + R), change system volume (modkey + arrouw up/dn).
      The following keys pressed at the same time prompt for shutdown: S+D+T
      The following keys pressed at the same time prompt for restart: S+R+T
      Middle mouse button click on titlebar minimizes to tray, or a left mouse button click in the icon in the tray also minimizes.
      Trigger is set off by space or enter, and timeouts after 3 seconds.
      Shows your external, lan, and gateway ip's, can refresh with right mouse click, and opens the default browser if the correspondent button is pressed.
      Able to change system volume by a set percentage, reading from the inputbox the number the user sets, if 0 or empty uses system default.
      I made this because the existing string trigger applications didn't do it for me for a number of reasons.
      I did this for me, but if someone finds it useful all the better.

      Hello all
      I found this function in the Internet
      It is to play audio files from  the compiled script
      I did not understand just one thing on this function
      func play($name, $wait = 0) local Const $SND_RESOURCE = 0x00040004 local Const $SND_ASYNC = 1 ; Play the file - the script will pause as it sounds if $wait = 0 then DllCall("winmm.dll", "int", "PlaySound", "str", $name, "hwnd", 0, "int", BitOR($SND_RESOURCE, $SND_ASYNC)) else DllCall("winmm.dll", "int", "PlaySound", "str", $name, "hwnd", 0, "int", $SND_RESOURCE) endIf return 1 endFunc What I did not understand was this variable
      local Const $SND_RESOURCE = 0x00040004 I know that this variable is contains the resource name
      But what if I want to change the name of the resource what i'll do?
      can i do that?
      Thanks in advance

      Hello forum users!
      At some point I had a need to restart my script. Is it possible to do this with autoit or do I need to connect additional scripts like .cmd or .bat?
      For example: i have only script.au3 and it's running. Wich code shoud i use to exit from the script and start it again?
