Task List

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Heh. yeah I have trouble keeping track of all the stuff I have to do so i made this little script so I always have a list handy =D

Basically it's a little gui with a list that slides in from the left/right when you move your mouse to that area(like if I set it to left mode, I would move my mouse to the left side of the screen(in the middle).

To add/remove, or change settings you just right click, and it'll have a bunch of stuff you can do:

Add task

Remove task

Move it(left or right side)

Autohide

Stay on top

Clear all

If you set it to the right side of the screen then you have to move your mouse the right side, incase you didn't assume.

Note: to "delete a task" you have to click it FIRST then rightclick > Delete

You can also rightclick the top bar to change it's color, but you don't have the pictures anyway. I can upload those too.

If you uncheck autohide, you can also drag the list around using the top bar, you can choose to "keep on top" which is a good idea if that's what you want to do.

It saves your tasks to "MyTasks.txt" and your settings to "Config.ini".

I like the idea and was about to create something myself.

But, why reinvent the wheel?

Do you see this having a problem running in Windows 10?

I double click, but nothing happens (after I've added the script to the same directory).

@ideleon007 did you notice this thread is almost 8 years old? Or that the OP hasn't visited the forum in 2? AutoIt is an ever-evolving language, it is no surprise that something written so long ago, for another OS, may not work on the latest.

Rather than resurrecting an old thread, you would be better off creating a new thread in General Help and Support and giving a detailed description of what you're attempting to accomplish. If you would like, you can even link back to this post for reference. That will get many more eyes looking at your issue, and you'll be much more likely to receive assistance.


√-1 2^3 ∑ π, and it was delicious!
