Jooel,

I hope you don't mind, but I redid your slider form so it wouldn't steal the focus from my current application anymore.

It uses a MSN Messenger-like popup window that slides up and down like your slider, but the focus stays on my current app. No more losing keystrokes while I'm working on something else.

It requires the latest version of KiXforms to work. Just replace the slider.kix file in the bbChecker folder.

code:
; New slider.kix for bbChecker

$Popup = CreateObject("Kixtart.Form")

$h = 120
$w = 300

$Popup.BorderStyle = 0
$Popup.ScaleHeight = 0
$Popup.ScaleWidth = $w
$Popup.ShowInTaskbar = False ; Not ready yet !
$Popup.TopMost = True

$popLabel = $Popup.Label(@crlf+@crlf+@crlf+@crlf+$sc,,,$w,$h)
$popLabel.BACKCOLOR = $Popup.RGB(255,255,255)
$popLabel.BorderStyle = 4
$popLabel.Alignment = 2

$Timer = $Popup.Timer(10)
$Timer.OnTimer = "Timer_Timer()"

$Popup.Top = $Popup.screen.height - (($b-3)+$Popup.Height)
$Popup.Left = $Popup.Screen.Width - ($w+15)
$Popup.Show
$DirectionIsUp = 1

While $Popup.Visible
$=Execute($Popup.DoEvents)
Loop

Exit(0)

Function Timer_Timer()
$Timer.Interval = 10
If $DirectionIsUp
$Popup.Height = $Popup.Height + 3
$Popup.Top = $Popup.Top - 3
If $Popup.Height => $h
$Popup.Height = $h
$Timer.Interval = 5000
$DirectionIsUp = 0
play "256t1d500f"
EndIf
Else
$Popup.Height = $Popup.Height -3
$Popup.Top = $Popup.Top + 3
If $Popup.Top >= ($Popup.Screen.Height-$b)
$Timer.Enabled = 0
$Popup.Hide
EndIf
EndIf
EndFunction

if not, the purpose why I did is lost...

Yes, sir. It uses the .topmost property to accomplish this feat.

I just replaced the slide function in the main script (bbCheckerII.kix) to test it out. It might work better this way and eliminate the call to slider.kix altogether.

heh...

the only reason to put it in separate file was the lack of support on behalf of forms.

you know, when it was in the main script, I hanged the main script totally and as such useless...

if that is not happening with forms2 I should look at that too.

I'm taken some days of beginning tomorrow and will have some time to look at the script.

maybe I'll even get it updated [Big Grin]

Yeah, it doesn't seem to be working when I include it with the main script.

Kent, that is interesting becuase the script is called using WKiX.

Hmm, indeed.

I think Jooel's install registers the KiXforms DLL. I had to re-register the 2.0.2 version after I installed it today.

Jooel,

Is there a new version of BBChecker? Just went to your site and it is dated 7 August 2002.

Thanks!

Kent

it re-registers it if the version number in the registry is lower.

kent, no. there is no later package.
I've been thinking of the update all the time, but somehow haven't done it.

Kent, I had to re-copy and re-register the KiXforms dll and it worked. The DOS screen is probably because of the .Topmost property call.

Edit on code. I commented out the 'cls' command (I was using it while running it under the KiX.exe). The 'cls' was causing a console window to pop up when the script was called.

Tweak to the code. Slider now 'slides' up and down from the top of the taskbar.

hence the topic,

if there is anyone wanting support for win9x there is one problematic part I can't test nor research.
the taskbar. I know what bits to change in w2k and nt but have no clue how to make it work in win9x.

there is nothing more to it but just all the positioning is done by the taskbar height.

Jooel,

Why rely on the taskbar height?
You could also let the slide bar start from the bottom of the screen and "overwrite" the taskbar. Changing the background color to yellow for example makes it easy to read the text...

Tomorrow (or today actually) I'll try the taskbar() function on Win9x for you...

(I've adjusted the code so it comes up in the middle of my screen)
