Dear Shawn,

It will not for long. During our vacation our counter will stop for
a period.
Only the active members get the possibility to move up in the TOP25
list. To become a Third Millenium guy isn't a very easy task.
Regardless of quantity or quality of your reactions.
At least such person must be a member for about two years.

Once I ask myself:
how much time costs it to enter all those information to the board?
At least you have to wait for one minute between each entry.

In most situations a fast reaction is possible. In other situation one simple
and short reaction can cost many hours.
See f.e. the amount of reactions of Ruud in relation to suggested amount of
hours in programming and testing a new kixtart release.
Also a chat look-a-like has quality. It can inspire you for great ideas in
a lonely night/moment.
greetings.

shawnie,
I made the new branch available at that same
http://www.gwspikval.com/jooel/scripts/bbchecker/II%20beta/ location...
it's the bbcheckerII.kix

it surely still is beta as you may need, but made the layout changes.
what you think?

Jooel,

Have you ever heard of this object:

$obj = createobject("microsoft.xmlhttp")

supposedly like WinHTTP, but comes with NT5 ???

sorry, but where it says it comes with w2k?
I think I ran to something like this at m$ page before, but could not get it working.

feeling little suspicious...

this could be good on one thing:
no need for dll-registering.

otherwise, have to see the power before can say more.

I have tried this under XP, and it seems to make the window disappear below my taskbar.. I can use ALT+SPACE and move it up.. Just kind of annoying..

kent,
did you try it with version?
anyway, the form positioning is done by taskbar.udf
the old version (which is now named something like beta...) did that on purpose.
there was to be other stuff to pop it up, but failed to build such a thing.

so, can you try this current one with your xp?

cheers,

Jooel,

Thoughts:

1) Might want to include TaskBar() and FormLink() UDF's in the script itself ... saves having to download and copy/paste seperateley ...

2) Can you include support for a configurable WAIT timer, between BBS scans ... either through a GLOBAL $VAR at top of script, or through an OPTIONAL INI FILE (ie, if INI file is there, and value assigned - use it - otherwise, use default) ? Probably GLOBAL VAR would be easier.

nope - im good - works a charm.

But since your asking, was wondering why you decided to make the FORM borderless. Sometimes, when BBChecker pops up - I'll be in the middle of a full-screen gui app, the BBChecker kinda "blends in" with the app - because it doesn't have a border ... no biggy, but was thinking that it may "look jazzier" if it had a minimal border ... just my two cents ... more personal preference maybe - haven't changed the script to see how it would look.

ps. aren't scripting languages WONDERFULL!!! One gets to see all the code, and if one wishes, can modify/enhance as desired!!! With 1 & 2 ghz workstations available, and even faster boxes on the horizon - I wonder if we'll ever see the day when traditional windows programs could/would be written in pure scripting language (eg, the demise of the compiled language - only for OS's and Libraries). At one time - I thought this would happen - but then that would throw copyrighting and propriety out the window - big business won't allow that to happen I'm sure ...

Actually - BBChecker might benefit from "The Toolbar BorderStyle" !!! Are you familiar with that one - it has a half-size TitleBar with minimal adornments. Can be seen in most "floating toolbars" when "detached" from the menubar - like if you dragged-and-detached the formatting toolbar from WORD ... not supported right now - but could be.
