VDS Tray Helper Utilty
======================
A little utiltty that sits in the system tray(Taskbar notification area to be more appropriate) and assists you while you are working with Visual Dialogscript.

You can download it from here :
http://codescript.vdsworld.com/VDS5src/Tray_helper_project.zip

Features:
---------
1.Start upto 3 custom programs along with the utility at startup.

A tray Rt click menu which has the following functions:

2.Restore VDS IDE - minimzes help file and restores IDE even if it's stuck.

3.Kill restart VDS IDE if it hangs (useful with DLL/API programmimg)

4.Dialog designer Assist - another utilty descibed below

5.Launch upto 4 custom apps and assign custom hotkeys to each.

Tray Icon click Features:

6.Ontop set any window as topmost window.(Ctrl + Left click the taskicon)

7.Notontop to reset a ontop window (Ctrl + Shift click)

8.Reverse the title bar of a window (Alt + click )

9.Restore the reversed title bar of a window.(Alt+Shift click)

10.Pick Text - Pick test to clipboard from a dialog edit box and
even a list box (Shift click)

11.Paste without Html tags (Ctrl+Alt+V)- This will paste the contents of the clipboard to the VDS IDE with html tags removed.


Dialog designer Assist(DD Assist)
=================================

This is another utility that helps in repositioning multiple dialog elements on the fly.
This is useful if you have multiple buttons/edit boxes on your dialog and suddenly decide to align all the buttons on a horizontal line.
The functions available are:

Measure Only - This will measure the dimensions of a given dialog element.

Pick'nPos - Pick and apply the selected dimensions.

Apply Selected

Pick'nShift

Shift Selected - Along X-axis OR Y-axis

Swap - swap two elements

You can understand these functions further by downloading the package.

Both the Utilities come with full featured help (I think - But I may be biased )

The application uses API/non VDS dll etc. Use is completely at your own risk.


Due to time constraints I may not be able to add the features I originally planned like:
Adding a new popup menu to IDE on middle mouse button click:
The menu would have
Jump to last postion and back - on IDE
Go to the first instance of the text/word under the cursor.
List the lines containing selected variable.

Autocomplete a command/function - syntax assist (not sure if permissible as per VDS license agreement)

Any one implements any of these functions please let me know.
Regards

Two new functions are added for API programmers. You can search for a API you typed in the IDE by two hotkeys:

API Constant Reference:
Hotkey: Ctrl+Shift+C

Win32 Programmer's Reference:
Hotkey: Ctrl+Shift+W

You need to specify their paths in the settings.ini file -Read the help files for details.

Updated the VDS API constants Reference (contained in the package)
with DDE and many user/database enhancements.

BTW anyone is using/tried this - I doubt Laughing
