Question

Screen Shot of Pixy 2.4 Professional

OK, I took on board all Dr. Dreads comments and updated Pixy to reflect this. New Features added:

Colour to Clipboard: When in Mouse Over or Mouse Click Mode Click on

relevant Colour Code eg. HTML, HEX etc and the colour code is copied to the clipboard.

Colour Brighten or Darken (Blend Bar): Blend Bar, it is now possible to
select a colour then click on the blend bar, to brigten or darken the
colour.

Pixy Will save your current settings on exit, eg. Mode, Zoom, Follow Mouse, Pixy OnTop

Pixy is now avaiable when you press Alt+Tab.

Also the GUI & script has slightly changed to removing the flicking of dialog elements.

Also I used Wise Installer to create an installation file for Pixy.

Hope is works well now. Please give me some feedback, Thanks

Much smoother! I will play with it for a few days and report back. $9.95 is right or a little cheap -- the program is cool and should be worth a little more.

Regards,

Mark

Took the new version for a spin, this time on my Win98 box. Good improvement. Still
some problems, though:

* The 'Follow Mouse' radio toggle does not seem to work.
* The 'Pixy On Top' toggle is one-way - once it is on top it'll stay there.
* The Zoom spin box is dead.
* On 'Mouse over' mode I get some hardcore disk activity and about 50% CPU usage
* In the previous version you could pinpoint a pixel in the zoom box by clicking it - that's not
possible now, but I think it was a good feature
* I think that in 'Mouse over' mode there should also be a way of capturing the screen segment
under the cursor (by click, hot-key etc.)

That was about it for now. Hope it helps ya.

The Follow Mouse Function Only works when you are in Mouse Over Mode.

The Spin Box (Zoom) is dead because you have to register the program to change the zoom.

Pixy On Top - The script I used was, Window Ontop, Pixy I have tried useing the script Window Normal, Pixy but the Dialog still remains ontop.

On Mouse Over Mode, the dialog elements are updated every 0.001 so the loop is running every 0.001 so it will eat up a small bit more of cpu i think, but the program seems to run smoother and function better.

I will try and add that feature to the next version of Pixy.

I hope this answers some of your qestions.

Nathan, the only method I've found to toggle a window
ONTOP is to use a child dialog as the main window:
Code:

rem -- Don't show main, it's easier/safer to
rem -- create and destroy child dialogs at will.
DIALOG CREATE, "Test Prog Main",0,0,0,0

:CreateWindow
if %%ontop
  DIALOG CREATE,"Test prog",-1,-1,200,100,ONTOP
else
  DIALOG CREATE,"Test prog",-1,-1,200,100
end
  DIALOG ADD,BUTTON,B1,5,5,80,20,"On Top"
  DIALOG ADD,BUTTON,B2,5,90,80,20,"Not On Top"
DIALOG SHOW

:EVLOOP
  WAIT EVENT
  goto @event()

:B1BUTTON
  DIALOG CLOSE
  %%ontop = 1
  goto CreateWindow

:B2BUTTON
  DIALOG CLOSE
  %%ontop = ""
  goto CreateWindow

:CLOSE
  EXIT

Cheers, Mac

Nathan, you're right - it's too messy... Wink

It would take quite a bit of re-writing. The way it is now,
closing and creating the pixy window would throw several
things off. I didn't realize ya had so many windows going. Wink

Cheers, Mac Smile
