Can we have such tool for OS 3.1 - 3.9 please? ;-)

May I ask, has someone tried or are using the 3rd-party group via Tooltypes, does it work as expected?

@samo79

I checked all 3 "Iconsreworked" icon packages, but I didn't find any. But I've added a normal drawer-icon for the drawer.

And I got the version cookie to work. I have two cookies in the code ($VER: and $EXTVER:), I just swapped order of them to not confuse VERSION, and it works now :D

Yeah it would be good :-)

Mmm you may try asking Tuxedo, he did so for his LoView program

> Sure, if there is one available. Which archive, do you have a link please?

If i'm not mistaken one iconset for your program should be in one of his "Iconsreworked" icon package, there are 3 different archive and all of them are availible here on OS4Depot

> Thank you very much samo79, you spot pretty much everything hah :D

Hehe :-)

@MichaelMerkel

Hmm, it might have do with that it can't find the Info_dt datatype (although it should make a clean exit)...

Do you have the Info_dt datatype installed correctly and the system rebooted?
And what OS version are you running?

http://os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=datatype/icon/info_dt.lha

info.datatype in SYS:Classes/DataTypes/
INFO(|.info) in DEVS:DataTypes/

Thanks for the report :)

>> - Would be nice to have a sort of highlighting when we click on icons

If you mean the selected state of the icon then currently I'm unable to read
the selected image of an icon with Hollywood :/ However, I can come up with
some other type of 'highlighting' of clicked icons in future releases :)


>> - The "O" shortcut (of the OK) in about window doesn't work .. window can be closed
>> pressing "Enter" of course, but the quick shortcut doesn't work at the moment

Oops, you right, I will fix.


>> - For the next release would be nice to have a VERSION support

Hmm, there is a version cookie defined in the code already.. But either Hollywood
screws this up or OS4's version command can't read it correctly :S

But the command Extversion / Extraversion can read it, found here:
http://os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=utility/shell/extraversion.lha


>> - Maybe you can use a nice icon for the program's folder, eventually check
>> the Tommysammy archive .. he probably painted one already :-)

Sure, if there is one available. Which archive, do you have a link please?


>> - In italian catalog the latest string "Edit" still in
>> english .. it could be translated as "Modifica"

Yeps that one slipped, my bad! :P


Thank you very much samo79, you spot pretty much everything hah :D

what does this mean:

Wrong usage/parameters for this command!
Read the documentation!
File: Preferences.hws (current line: 403 - in cunction: CloseDisplay)


when trying to start it?

regards...

Tested a bit the latest 1.50 .. all good but some spare considerations/suggests:

- Would be nice to have a sort of highlighting when we click on icons

- The "O" shortcut (of the OK) in about window doesn't work .. window can be closed pressing "Enter" of course, but the quick shortcut doesn't work at the moment

- For the next release would be nice to have a VERSION support

- Maybe you can use a nice icon for the program's folder, eventually check the Tommysammy archive .. he probably painted one already :-)

- In italian catalog the latest string "Edit" still in english .. it could be translated as "Modifica"

For the rest all seems working nicely :-)

Finishing coding on the 3rd party group is next on the agenda, it's to be released in next update if all goes well :)

Can't wait for the version with 3rd party group to be released. The most interesting feature of the software.

@zzd10h

Thanks :)

If I find a way to access the selected image with info_dt, then no problem. Otherwise I'll come up with something to make it look less "static", thank you for the suggestion.

 
 
Comment by: zzd10h (109.8.236.148)At: 27 Oct 2015, 13:54File version: 1.10
I forgot, could you add a different button state when a icon is clicked ? For example, to use the selected .info picture when you select a button. For the moment, it looks a little bit static. Thank you

> I get the same brush 1000 error message...

Pleases make sure you have the Icon/Info datatype installed and the System (OS) rebooted. And the error message should go away... :)

info_dt can be found here:
http://os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=datatype/icon/info_dt.lha

Yes, written in Hollywood. That error was unknown to me, thanks for the notice :) I'll take a look this weekend or something...

There is a small problem with preferences and a recent version of dos.library. It's very easy to fix and if you contact my privately at ncc @ f2s.com I'll explain the problem and the fix. I'd contact you directly but the contact.asp page on your website is broken and there is no email address in the docs.

Checked  Tuomas/TSKs "PrefsCenter" -> looks better and works fast. So, everyone who like the idea, can use it.
 
 
Comment by: kas1e (95.54.70.238)At: 04 Sep 2010, 11:14File version: Alpha_3
Idea are good, yes (the same done in Ambient on morphos already), but because its Hollywood based app - its a bit slow :( I.e. when you run it, you can see how window start to be white, then start to have background, then you can see how icons draws one after one.

It do the same on plain C, it will be cool imho.
 
 
Comment by: djrikki (81.104.215.132)At: 03 Sep 2010, 13:59File version: Alpha_3
This is the kind of software that should be bundled with the OS and the same goes for Filer. Hope to see it in there one day. Alas keep up the good work. :-)
 
 
Comment by: cha05e90 (84.134.66.233)At: 01 Sep 2010, 04:10File version: Alpha_3
Nice idea - but is there any chance to have a future version that do *not* need the icon-datatype? An active icon datatype has (often) side effects, which is the reason why i have it never activated. There should be a possibility to use standard icon.library functions to load the icon images...
Another suggestion: I would like to see some kind of user preferences to add 3rd party prefs (i.e. "users & groups", XAD prefs etc.).

Comment by: Severin (83.67.70.55)At: 29 Aug 2010, 17:25File version: Alpha2
Oops, so it is, sorry...

The new version is looking for "sys:Prefs/Env-Archive/sys/def_file.info", it should be looking for "ENV:sys/def_file.info". I got this error as I've moved all those annoying def icons out of envarc:sys and into envarc:def_icons/sys then added "assign envarc: envarc:def_icons add" to my user-startup.
So far (over 3 years) yours is the only program to fail.

Nice Mac OS X System Preferences clone. I like it a lot.
Can you add localization support, so that the names of the preferences editors could be translated?

issues so far.

And, please make sure you have the info.datatype installed, you can
