yeh, 1.5.2.19 had it all together but it was using bloody IE to report errors on PM send.
you know, those windows saying:
we do not permit this tag, parenthesis in HTML tag

so, parsed that also to show messagebox for what is wrong and return to write mode with message undestroid...

so, current release really is .20, just didn't bother informing about it.

new version (1.5.2.23), changes since .20:
-much of the code was pushed to own files for easier update and correction (even my eyes could not handle that amount anymore)
-introduced new udf buddyaction which now on takes care of the buddysection
-buddies are now sorted

so, if you don't think those changes are usefull, don't upgrade.

cheers to you sleepy ppl.

heh.
current 1.5.2.24 has most changes in one build.
don't take it as stable as been running it only 10 minutes.

changed calling of ie (dunno if any faster, more cryptic maybe)
also, took the org and runie and such vars out of the main script to globals.kix so changing of something like boards address can be changed in there and it reflects to all places where used.

but, the main thing was to add go to buddies.
it looked empty when the file had only 1kB of size.

so, new buddylist code does not flush the list every time.
it just add and removes the data accordingly.
this removes the annoying feature of trying to get someones profile showed someone elses cause the list got updated at the same time.

I remember when I was in 1.3.x and cried aloud that the size can't grow over 10k...
well, now the total size is only 26 041 bytes.

anyway, 'til next update you sleepers, see ya!

ok, that seems to be a commercial crap.
the way listbox is designed, one can't reference the elements in it by index.
so, if I really want to get rid of scrolling the selection, would need a listview in the buddy box and that is little overshooting.
but, as told that it does not open wrong link anymore, hardcoded that in .25
it will work properly, meaning that it memorises your selection and does not allow clicks while it scrolls.
this is so fast that most of us wont even see the flash... well, maybe les with his 100MHz pentium.

so, it didn't pass. third time. 27.
also, as doc was afraid of running the checker as les got the unistaller to delete "some" other files too, I decided to change the uninstall code.
the delete dir is now hard coded to %programfiles%\bbchecker.

so, doc, you may try the new code [Wink]

OK, DLd 27. Is it just me or is the response to mouse clicks better?

BTW Jooel, I'm not running a P100... more like 500. At work we toss anything slower than 200.

Until the weekend, I was a BBChecker virgin!

I like it, quite nice; saves me from visiting the website every 5 minutes!

I do have a couple of comments though...

  • When I receive notification of a new post on the board, I click on it and it uses my current IE window to access it...Personally I would prefer it to open a new IE Window each time I click on the notification.
  • Would it also be possible to minimize BBChecker to the system tray? I realise that BBChecker is written in Kix and therefore may not be possible...any comments?
  • Would it also be possible to remove the BBChecker entry from my taskbar?
  • Would it also be possible to remove the "Command Centre" from the bottom right of my display. Basically, what I would like is to be unaware that BBChecker is running, until a post appears on the BB?
  • Is it possible to make some changes to BBChecker's configuration so that I can monitor the Kix forums on the ScriptLogic's website too - Or is that unreasonable?
Cheers; keep up the good work,
Lee

Lee,

glad to see you're using the checker too [Big Grin]

Concerning your Q's:

Q:
When I receive notification of a new post on the board, I click on it and it uses my current IE window to access it...Personally I would prefer it to open a new IE Window each time I click on the notification.

A:
Yes, in IE under options\advanced, there's an option called "reuse...." clear the checkbox and your problem should be gone.

Q:
Would it also be possible to minimize BBChecker to the system tray? I realise that BBChecker is written in Kix and therefore may not be possible...any comments?

A:
Not yet without any 3rd party utils, this is a known KiXforms issue. Search the old checker posts; it's been discussed before.

Q:
Would it also be possible to remove the BBChecker entry from my taskbar?

A:
See previous answer

Q:
Would it also be possible to remove the "Command Centre" from the bottom right of my display. Basically, what I would like is to be unaware that BBChecker is running, until a post appears on the BB?

A:
Yes you can, the KiX script is adjustable by you. You could make the size of the $m object really small and place it behind the taskbar, but how to close it then???

Q:
Is it possible to make some changes to BBChecker's configuration so that I can monitor the Kix forums on the ScriptLogic's website too - Or is that unreasonable?

A:
It could be, but at the same time??? Think it will take Jooel (checker's author) a lot of time to do this... Jooel???

Lee,
HTH and keep that checker running!!!

Patrick,

Cheers for your prompt reply!

I've already made the change to IE as you suggested.

God knows how long I've been using IE, and I never knew that option was there...What a muppet I am!!!

May I also apologise for asking questions that have already been answered - I know its annoying when people do that! I'm just being my normal annoying self I guess!

I'll see how I get on.

Actually, one other thing. I was running BBChecker at the weekend, only to see a post from Joel, stating a URL with additional updates. I don't know if I did the right thing, but I simply downloaded all those files and otherwrote the files in my "Program Files\BBChecker" folder. I then ran BBChecker and it didn't work - I received an error. I simply put it down to this particular version of BBChecker being in development.

Was I doing the right thing? Should I be downloading these files and updating my version of BBChecker?

Thanks again,

Lee

PS. Don't ask me what error I was getting...I haven't a clue...I was running BBChecker at home - and I'm at work now! I've installed BBChecker on my works PC; it's working great!

Lee,
Basically, the new files simply replace the existing ones. If an install is required then Jooel lets us know.

It is a work in progress and there have been the odd dud released so best to save the old files before replacing.

Kent,
I DLd the latest today at work and get the same error. The version I DLd at home on the weekend does not have this problem.

Jooel?

boys, I'm not sure did I get that fail fixed.
waiting for PM...

lee,
yes you can remove it from taskbar, after $m.show write a line:
$m.showintaskbar=0

but, you have been warned, you can't manage it anymore.
what comes to scriptlogic, their board is so much simpler that I can do it, neirly it's matter do I want to.
new messages come like once a week.
the parser could be adjusted to check it and report the same as PM but, this is made for one board at the time and the thing I'm currently interested in, is to make this work with other boards using the same software, like the van halen board...

kent,
the kixforms version is minimum, the version that has been in the last package.
I'm not running neither .35 nor .36 and once made a build which crashed [Wink]
we were somewhere at the release of 1.3.0 when saw that I could use the checker with forms 1 build 13!!!

anyway, got a PM, will test my fix.

just a quick heads up.
mostlikely there will be no 1.5.3

almost every part of the code has changed already.
just need to make the icons cleaner and then everything is new.

so, will be heading for 1.6
