A Slideshow widget for XP

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

A Slideshow application similar to the Vista slideshow widget (Stays on top of all windows)

Creates/Reads a text file list of images and runs through them in sequence or randomly.

Slideshow.txt is a sample INI file (RENAME THIS FILE TO SLIDESHOW.INI to start)

Also create a file show.txt (can be empty) and place it in the same directory as the application/script

You can specifiy (via this ini file).

The

  • Size and position of the show, as well as the frequencey images are editable.
  • The image is scaled to fit and then centred verticall & horizontally in the

    viewport defined by the width and height

  • There is also the ability to hide the image if it gets in the way Or

    work sequentially through a list of images in a text File (the app

    allows you to create a list by trawling through a directory and all

    sub-directories to create a list of jpg files)

  • For the paranoind you can even encrypt the slideshowfile

When in slideshow mode

left clicking on an image hides it for you (if set on in the ini file)

Right clicking on the middle third of an image fits it to full-screen and copies it to the clipboard (The show will be PAUSED)

Right clicking on the right third of an image moves to the next image

Right clicking on the left third of an image shows the previous image

When in fullscreen Mode

Right clicking on the right third of an image moves to the next image

left clicking on an image hides it for you

A Taskbar menu allows you to

  • Toggle the Viewstate of the show
  • Select a diferent Show
  • Create a new show
  • Edit & save the settings
  • Exit the applicatiopn

Then file "_GDIClip.au3" is a direct copy of some UDF's created by Progandy

!!! Some really fantastic work !!! see

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=70237

(There are 2 constants replaced by values)

BAD,BAD, BAD somehow uploaded a file with the incorrect save settings function. now fixed

slideshow.txt

_GDIClip.au3

Art_Canvas.ico

This is really good, I love it! :D

But IMHO you should remove all that widget-talk, it confused the hell out of me, it's Explorer.exe that shows pictures fullscreen (by using shimgvw.dll) and it started with WindowsXP. Unless you meant something else? ;)

Agreed, why we don't simply call them applications or features, as applicable, is beyond me

right, the warnings are nothing to worry about, that is simply because the structure of the code is a little unusual (at least as far as au3check is concerned).

The second error is caused by poor error trapping. (I will fix later)

you have tried to create a new show where the root directory you have selected does not have any sub-directories.

to get around this for now, simply create an empty folder in the root you have selected

I just looked over the sourcecode for this and I must say I am confused now ;) . When I posted my post above I had only runned the script a few times and not read it so I thought it was only For watching images fullscreen.

But after rereading your first post a few times and reading the code I saw that there is a second GUI that never shows?? :D And it locks up when trying to show it? Maybe this should be called a widget, but I can't tell until you fix it so you can get to the smaller GUI... ;)

Have a look at the init function.

unless you rename the file slideshow.txt to slideshow.ini it will try and run FULL SCREEN. (but because you have not yet creagted a show file it will be blank).

the second gui is accessed from the taskbar menu.

Ok, I renamed it and it and the small gui showed, and I can change to full screen but it doesn't work to go back from full screen. When I rightclick in the middle of the screen there doesn't seem to happen anything.

PS. It exits if I start without the showfile, I had to manually create it for it to start.

Edit: Actually it seems like right-clicking the any of the gui's (the middlepart) locks them. ie they stop responding.

sorry about that, as is obvious I am rubbish at documentation.

If you have the app running (not full screen) and right click on the Middle of the small image, the image will be shown full screen, copied to the clipboard, and the show will be paused

BAD,BAD, BAD somehow uploaded a file with the incorrect save settings function. now fixed

also now trap errors when no slideshow exists

an fixed a bug for when the slideshow folder has no subfolders in the slideshow creation functions.

In addition after opening an image in fullscreen mode you can now move to the next image by right clicking the right 3rd of the image
