Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

Hood,
I can reproduce the bug you mentioned. When I have time to work some more, I'll fix the bug or find a way to allow stacked slots.

Lennois:
Currently, when a new window is found, it is temporarily placed in the first free slot. Then, if drag drop swapping is enabled, it is moved to the closest slot. If there is a window in this closest slot, the two windows will swap positions. I can see an argument for not doing this swap when the window is first found.

If someone could PM me basic instructions for getting Placemint (is there a tutorial somewhere?) set up it would be appreciated. I play on Pokerstars. Thanks.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

Okay, thanks IrishThug.

I took the swapping option off and it works fine.

Would be good to have an option where it swaps only when I drag it with my mouse. All the jumping when it loads up is pretty disorientating.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

Good news, everyone! I was looking at the two slots same location issue and found out what the real problem was. The flickering wasn't just when there were two slots with the same location. The flickering only started when there is a working configuration in place, with a slot controlling a window. Then when you go to configure the group and make a clone of the non-empty slot. What was happening was that the old slot and the new cloned slot both thought they were controlling the same window.

Now that I know this, I can fix it and tear out all the code I added in order to disallow slots in the same location, as that wasn't actually causing any problems.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

v0.4 can now be downloaded from the project page.

This has almost all of the feature requests that have been made and a couple important fixes that will make PlaceMint run much smoother. Change Log

munchu,
Did you read the setup guides I've linked to in this thread? You also need to give me some more information about what is causing you problems, or else I can't help you.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

Sounds like you Don't have the RegEx list setup correctly. If you just have "new title" and "custom" I think you went to Edit RegEx list, didn't change anything, then hit save.

If you need some regular expressions written for you, you can download the list that is posted on the project's download page. Once you download it, you will need to set the file name in the options window. If you need other expressions that are not supplied, you can either go back to Edit RegEx list and make the regular expression that you want to use.

v0.3.1 fixes a number of the bugs mentioned by Hood. It also has a fix prevent the crashes caused by attempting to read files from folders that don't exist. If you moved you PlaceMint installation after initializing the settings, the program let you know that the files could not be found instead of crashing. If you were experiencing crashes, but don't think this was why, please check out the patch and let me know if you are still experiencing crashes.

As of the v0.3.1 release, I'm going to release sample Slot Template and RegEx List files separate from the main release because they won't likely change as frequently and might have overwritten a user's changes if they were not careful when unzipping a new release.
thanks thug this worked

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

You can right click, move. Then hit one of the arrow keys, then you can move the window with your mouse. I have seen this happen, but didn't really stop to think about it. I won't have time tomorrow, but I will try to look into what is happening there.

thanks got everything working now. Not sure if i over looked it but it would be nice to have the option to make "slots" 2 though 8 act as a stack (out of a 20 slot set up) and when you hit a hot key 2-8 would restack leaving the others alone.

so if i want to add firefox to the list of programs i want placemint to handle i can do that?

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

To track firefox, you can just make a custom regular expression that is ''firefox'' You can put more effort into getting a more specifc regular expression, but that should be fine.

You are going to have to try again to explain your stack-hotkey scenario. I'm not quite sure what you were trying to say.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

I don't have iPoker, so I can't see what the window titles look like. But like I said with the firefox question, if your not good with regular expression, just try to find a word or string of words that will always be present in an iPoker window.

If people have taken the time to make specific regular expressions for sites that aren't currently in the downloadable list, please share them to help the people who can't make them themselves.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

Hi,

Today I had some time to test this app a little bit. I must say I love the window swapping by hotkey. It does exactly what I want. When a new window is open it places it in a slot automaticaly. From there on I can just use hotkeys and have disabled the dragging and dropping, perfect. A big thank you to you, sir!

However I have also found some bugs. I configured some slots for my pokertables, ofcourse all with a hotkey. When I later went back to the Configure window to add some more slots, I found that for a lot of slots the hotkey showing "None" while I had given them a hotkey (randomly, sometimes all of them, sometimes a just a few). If I just closed the Configuration window there was no problem because the hotkeys just kept on working. I guess there just not showing in the Configure window and when saved ofcourse the hotkeys don't work anymore.

Secondly, when cloning a slot that has a hotkey set, the new slot gets the same hotkey as the old one. I think the new slot should have the hotkey set to "None" in order to prefent double hotkeys.

Also concerning cloned slots. Sometimes when I cloned a slot (that has the show option enabled) and I use the show option on the new slot in order to move it (using the x,y boxes in the shown window), when I uncheck the the show option again it hides the original slot window (the one that has been cloned, the wrong one). If however I edit the position of the new slot in the Configure window while it is showing and then uncheck the show option it works properly. This is not a big problem at all, just a little strange.

So far for the bugs, I also have some sugestions/requests, if you don't mind. It would be cool if along with the normal cloning we could clone a slot to the left, right, top or bottom of the original slot. For instance If I have a slot at location 0,0 size 10x10, and I clone it to the right, the cloned slot would be size 10x10 ofcourse and the location would be 10,0. It seams that there would be plenty of room for those buttons in the window that we get when enabling show for a slot. Either that or you could make the current clone button in to a dropdown menu (or idealy both ofcourse). This way it will be very eazy and quick to create slot layouts. Along those lines it would also be nice when a slot that has show enabled gets cloned the new slot also gets show enabled.

Finaly, the request I would like to see the most: When using hotkeys instead of swapping the window that is in the slot the mouse is over, swapping the active window. Ofcourse the app would have to check if the active window is in a slot currently. Otherwise it might create some problems if I have five windows and only four slots. I think this is much more natural and this way I could use the keyboard via pokerpad to activate the window I want to move and thereby avoid using the mouse all togetter right now it works ok for me, but with this change it would be perfect

Anyway I love PlaceMint (and The Opener as well). Thanks a lot.

Yours truly,
EazyDoesIt

Fozzy,
As long as you give me a little info about what you are trying to do and don't just say, "It doesn't work" it won't be a stupid question.

EazyDoesIt,
Noted. I'll look into the bugs you mentioned and consider the feature requests.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

Uploaded a patch for v0.4 that can be downloaded from the project page.

v0.4.1 fixes the disappearing hotkeys when opening the configuration window. Cloning a slot will no longer copy the hotkey, as this was putting the configuration in an invalid state without the user knowing it. Also, the last window location was wrong if PlaceMint had been minimized when closed.
I also added the movement buttons EasyDoesIt mentioned to the sample slot window. Also the tray and icon will now change to red whenever PlaceMint is paused.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

I have a weird bug with PlaceMint, for some reason now everytime I start the app, it appears minimized and in the tray. However, I can't get it to "restore". it simply appears that it is still minimized. Is there a config file I can alter to change the default window sizing to get back to the "normal" placemint window.

Re: PlaceMint: Window Positioning Tool

This was likely caused by the bug I just fixed about closing PlaceMint when it was minimized. You can either move the window back on the screen by:

Or by editing the PlaceMint_settings.config and changing the X and Y values for WindowRect.
