- Tooltypes.


CHANGES

1.30: (2016 May)
NOTE: Sorry that 3rd-party-program feature and Greek translation are not included in this update. They were meant to be but because they need some more time as they are not 100% finished yet (roughly 50%-80 done already) and I wanted to get this update out the door sometime as this update has dragged out quite too many nights programming time already and I need to move on to other programming tasks in the meanwhile. And I don't like leaving users to wait for too long on finished features. However, the plan is to get them both included in the next update :)
- Implemented (optional) addition of MUI prefs into the Personal-group, you can turn this off by setting the Tooltype: MUIinPersonal = NO .
- Implemented (optional) addition of Granite prefs into the Internet-group, you can turn this off by setting the Tooltype: GraniteInInternet = NO .
- Implemented (optional) shadow to icons. (You can turn it off by setting the Tooltype: IconShadows = NO)
- Implemented (a customizable) first string in the window title. (To set this use the Tooltype: CustomTitle = FirstTitleString)
- Added transations, Dutch by Johan Banis, German by Thomas Blatt, Spanish by Enrique Mecklenburg and British-English checked by Severin. NOTE: Greek translation will be included in the next release (hopefully).
- Implemented ToopTypes for background, foreground and group title colors.
- Corrected all "Env-Archive" paths to "ENVARC", thanks Severin.
- Swapped "Prefs/" and "ENVARC:" icons, so they become alphabetic.
- Declared application information. (title, authors, $VER: and $EXTVER: string versions, identifier, copyright, and description).
- A couple of other optimizations.

1.20: (2015 Nov)
- Startup icon drawing optimized, approximatively 5%-15% faster now.
- Added a different button state when clicking buttons/icons, suggested by Guillaume (zzd10h) Boesel.
- Added ENVARC: button/icon, suggested by Guillaume (zzd10h) Boesel.
- Added a new default program icon, (the old renamed as alt icon, in case someone still prefers to use that icon).
- Added a menu with two items, About and Quit, for easier access. And also for showing theirs hotkey.
- Now compiled to HW applet as well, suggested by Severin.
- Included French locale by Guillaume (zzd10h) Boesel.
- Retweaked the layout in the About window to fit more info.
- Removed Install and Uninstall scripts, as they are not actually needed. (User may just copy "Preferences" and "Preferences.info" to where they like.

I copied preferences and preferences.info to SYS:Utilities along with preferences.hwa

I then copied the english-british and the norwegian locale files to SYS:Locale/Catalogs/english-british and norwegian folders respectively

I then downloaded and copied the info datatype to classes/datatypes and devs/datatypes

I've must have rebooted 10 times (for other reasons) but when i try to run preferences, i get this.

Hi, I'll have take a look why it doesn't work when I'm at my Amiga (although I think that the languages files are not found)... Thanks for the error report :)

Meanwhile you can try copy the catalogs dir to where your Preferences files are (your "SYS:Utilities") and try starting the program again and see if it works...

I checked the source now, it fails because it doesn't find the datatype, more precisely it doesn't find the file:
Classes:DataTypes/info.datatype

Did you install the correct info-datatype, found here?
http://os4depot.net/index.php?functio ... datatype/icon/info_dt.lha

Do you have these two files?
"Classes:DataTypes/info.datatype"
"Devs:DataTypes/info"

Both atleast version 52.2?

Never mind... I had put the info.datatype in SYS:Classes and NOT in SYS:Classes/Datatypes

I moved it there, and moved the Catalogs back to Locale, and it works. I even got it in my own language, Norwegian.

Nice utility, really.

Tested the latest version, it works fine, great !

Just 2 things,
1) About window OK button is not pressed when clicked, it works, window is closed. It's just a cosmetic problem.

2) a question by curiosity, i noticed that 3rd-party prefs is not for this version but do you plan to add 3rd party prefs by scanning Prefs drawers or by hardcoding them ?

Thx

Neither Customizable, the user specifies them with paths in Tooltypes.
