hyperzap I haven't forgot about that, it will find its way in a later version, I'm still thinking of the best way to implement it without re-writing a whole bunch of code!

I'm also trying to optimize the code already there and make it easier to implement things in the future, when I'm happy with it I'll add more things...

Usually that's what happens, I add a couple of things, like I did a couple of versions ago, then while I'm there I start finding things I don't like or bugs and fix them...

now, about the public key cryptography, I'll have to look into that as I haven't really researched...

thanks for the recommendations!

Nice app you have there!

If you also need anything for your project, let me know :)

AoRaToS,

I like this. I used a similar program in the past, but the GUI was all in Japanese, so only a small few of us could use it.

I would like to implement this at one of the offices I am working at, but there are a couple of small issues I would like to see resolved first.

  • The GUI has a fixed location. It needs to be movable.
  • It would be great if I could set the ports to be used in the settings.
I will also be happy to help with the Japanese translation, if no native speakers step up.

About the first one,

the GUI doesn't have a fixed location, it's movable If you click 'n drag right and left of the Refresh button or on the picture when you're not connected, although I haven't set it to save the last location so it'll open at that same spot every time (I can change that)

<CLICK HERE> |Refresh| <CLICK HERE>

The other option about the ports, I was thinking of adding it in the options at some stage but I didn't to avoid confusing users that may not know how to use things like that, I may add it in the Advanced section though...

About the language, I don't know Japanese, if you're interested though I'm planning on implementing language changing soon so I'll post the language file that will need to be translated!

Ok. I can see that. Although for users, a drag handle on the top would be more consistent with other Windows apps. (Not to be picky or anything... :) )

Even if not in the settings GUI, if you put it in the INI/Registry where you are storing the settings, they can be changed by more advanced users.

Let me know when you have the language file ready, and I will be happy to help.

That's true, however I didn't like the titlebar... The GUI will change at some stage, I'll add a customizable skin which should look better also!

put it in the INI/Registry where you are storing the settings, they can be changed by more advanced users.

Good idea!

Let me know when you have the language file ready, and I will be happy to help.

I'll let you know when I have it ready!

One thing I do like is the "Button Password GUI's" such a great little idea :) I especially like the "Dimming Effect!"

Let me know when you have the language file ready, and I will be happy to help.

AoRaToS >> Do you have the Function for Multi-Language already? As I would be happy to share an Example I have :)

Edit: With settings I normally prefer the good 'ol INI File!

Hello guinness,

I don't have the function made yet, you're free to share yours and I may implement it...

I was thinking of making a language file for each language, using .ini formatting

then anywhere there's text it should point to the specific parameter= in the selected language file

I'm not yet sure, I'll see...

Something like this? I was going to send you a PM to respect your no Source Code policy :) But unfortunately this wasn't possible.

Language File: Saved as English.ini or English.txt or English.lng (it depends entirely on you)

[English]
TEST_1=Test 1
TEST_2=Test 2
TEST_3=%APPDATA%\Working Directory
Example use of Function:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, '_Language()', _Language('TEST_1', 'Test 1'))
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, '_Language()', _Language('TEST_2', 'Test 2'))
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, '_Language()', _Language('TEST_3', '', False)) ; Don't Expand EnvStrings.
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, '_Language()', _Language('TEST_3', '')) ; Expand EnvStrings.
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, '_Language()', _Language('TEST_4', 'If Key Doesn''t Exist This Is Shown As @LF @LF Default.')) ; Default Language String.

Func _Language($sData, $sDefault, $fIsExpand = True)
    Local $sLanguage = IniRead(@ScriptDir & '\Settings.ini', 'General', 'Language', 'English')
    $sData = IniRead(@ScriptDir & '\' & $sLanguage & '.ini', $sLanguage, $sData, $sDefault)
    If $fIsExpand Then
        $sData = _WinAPI_ExpandEnvironmentStrings($sData)
    EndIf
    $sData = StringRegExpReplace($sData, '\h*@CR\h*', @CR)
    $sData = StringRegExpReplace($sData, '\h*@LF\h*', @LF)
    $sData = StringRegExpReplace($sData, '\h*@CRLF\h*', @CRLF)
    $sData = StringRegExpReplace($sData, '\h*@TAB\h*', @TAB)
    Return $sData
EndFunc   ;==>_Language

don't worry about that, you can post code here

Yes something like that was what I was thinking of, of course it has quite a few message boxes, labels and text in general but it shouldn't be hard, just time consuming :)

Thank you for that, I'll play around with it :)

But I'll get on with it soon!

Cool! I would like to see the changes you make to see if I could utilise this in the future :P But no problem if not...I totally respect why >> :)

Also last night I was playing around (thinking logically) trying to figure out the "Ghost Effect" as I would call it. Thanks for the inspiration :)

Hi,

I just tried your new version and I have a question for you.

When I hide the window by right-clicking the systray icon and selecting "Hide", how do I bring it back up to send a message? I've been going into task manager, closing the process and then re-run it.

Thanks,

:)

There's a HotKey for that: by default it is Ctrl+Alt+Space unless you changed it from the Settings...

It's all explained in the first post of this topic!

Still needs work... Just sample pics, I'm moving the "check for updates" to the About window and changing the Settings window to be larger, I will also be making other changes to the Settings window so the interface is cleaner and not so full

Edit - removed pics

4. Specific settings not being greyed out as supposed to in Preferences GUI (previously Settings).

5. About GUI - re-designed and Updater implemented. License Agreement added.

You can change your status by clicking the icon next to your Username before connecting (cycle through) or by choosing the one you want by right-clicking the tray icon.

9. Updater version 1.3.1.3, now gets information about the latest s!mpL3 LAN Messenger and displays it after updating.
