there is a tool that checks all the new posts on bb.
it informs you, keeps track of the messages, shows logged on users...

it's bbchecker.
basically, you download an exe:
http://www.gwspikval.com/jooel/scripts/bbChecker/BBChecker.exe

which installs the package.
after that, you can start using it.
if you want to know what is inside the script or you want to steal the code, go to:
http://www.gwspikval.com/jooel/scripts/bbChecker/sources/current/

remember that kixtart is not freeware!

anyway, it has come 1.5 from the day of using IE window and shawn saying:
quote:
ok - little payback here Jooel - how come when I install or re-install BBChecker - there is never any MENU ITEM put into my START MENU ??? Im running Windows XP ... heheee
quote:
damn - it did work - should have checked before i installed the latest version - never mind. Good one bud !
to be one of the most developed kixtart GUI scripts around.
so, if you do not fancy the BB, you can always see what your scripts might have!

hope you have fun!

Lonkero

ps. the development will not stop, this is just one of those bus stops...

Jooel,
So what do I have to change in BBChecker so that the title of the post doesn't replace the BBChecker II title in the icon on the TaskBar. I have a habit of right-clicking the icons and closing the windows and end up closing BBChecker.

shawn, is it possible to remove the menu from taskbar?
or at least, catch the event of user pressing alt+F4?

One does not like to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I have this pet peeve about standards.

f.e. 3D buttons should always be single-click while flat objects should always be double-click except for URLs which again are single-click. I'm not saying it isn't that way in BBChecker. I'm just explaining standards.

OK, to get to the point(er). The mouse pointer as well should follow standards. I don't know the terminology for the different pointers but I do know when they are not right.

f.e. the standard pointer, arrow at 11 o'clock for RH mouse, changes to a hand with pointed finger when you mouseover a URL. When you mouseover the history list however, it should be the standard pointer because the pointing hand would indicate a single click action but the listbox items require a double-click.

So... the line:
$hl[$].mousepointer=16

should be:
$hl[$].mousepointer=1

to be true to standards.

OK, so nobody wants to help me out with terminology. I couldn't find anything on the KiXForms site either. I read somewhere (think it was a bathroom stall) that the paperwork is the last job to be done.

Oh well, came upon this from MSDN that seems to match with what I tried in KiXForms.

If your saying that the HAND mouse pointer over the listbox looks a little strange, I would have to agree with that. Guess you could change or own copy of BBChecker, or maybe Jooel could make it a setting at the top of the script. But it aint standard windows look and feel if thats what you mean.

Yeah, everyone has the prerogative to set their own preferences.
Actually the line:
$hl[$].mousepointer=16

could be just remarked out as the default is the ARROW anyway. I found it in the script and changed it but was really wondering what the supported properties (and terminology)were (was).

Through a bit of trial and error it would seem that perhaps the first 16 values are valid.

Yeah, the valid values for MousePointer are exactly the same as those in the link you provided ... up to the number 16. Kixforms is modeled more along the lines of VB and VBA though, which doesn't have those "extra" settings specified in that link either.

Hey! I just thought of a new feature for BBChecker...

A PM notifier!

As it is now, if someone PM's you, it's not until you receive an email or check your profile that you would know about it.

BTW Shawn, I PM'd you.

OK, more on my 'Standards' pet peeve...

The 'Clear History' trash icon object in the history view should be a 3D button since it is a single click object.

The line:
$hbt.appearance=0

should be:
$hbt.appearance=1

or commented out as the default is 3D.

After the button is clicked, it gets a black border around it. Anyone know how to stop that?

Like I said, pet peeves... [Big Grin]

KiXass product, this BBChecker!

So, will someone carry my motion for a 'Private Message Notifier'?

Agghh. My work PC has been getting slower and slower all day, and I have finally found out what it is...

[Eek!] The slider function has a memory leak [Eek!]

Every single time the slider pops up with a new posting, it eats up some memory. When the slider disapears, the memory is still being used. After a few hours on the forums, I was using about 370mb memory on a PC that only has 256mb installed.!!

I would recommend switching off the slider thingy until this is looked at, even though it is a great little add-on.!

4.11 has a memory leak that was fixed in 4.12rc1. Give it a go.

Kixtart 4.12 fixed a memory leak with EXECUTES and CALLS, might want to swapin the new beta into the BBCheckerII folder (if thats how Jooel has things setup) ... might still leak a little after that ... but not as bad ...

Nope, still doing, but to a lesser degree.

The amount of memory taken this time is less than before, but it is still not being released.
