CmdPrompt v1.0

Opens a command prompt at a location determined by the currently active window.

  • For Explorer windows this will be the location in view (if the location is accessible by the command prompt, e.g. not Control Panel).
  • For the desktop this will be the user’s Desktop folder (if running NT).
  • In all other cases this will be the window’s working directory.

Written by Alex Peters, 13/6/2005

Allows execution of aliases with parameter passing.  Also accepts PowerPro commands, programs, folders, documents and Internet resources for execution.

Aliases may exist as labels within the ARB script and/or as external scripts matching a user-specified wildcard.  For those not interested in backward compatibility with internal aliases an ‘external’ edition without that facility is included.

Major differences to v3.2:

  • Aliases can be stored externally.
  • New internal aliases are automatically recognised.
  • The ARB box defaults to its last used command string.
  • Programmatic alias manipulation (ARB_Add etc.) is not included.

Alias Run Box (ARB) v3.2

ARB (Alias Run Box) v3.2 is now available at:
https://github.com/Lx/powerpro-ARB/archive/v3.2.zip

No parts of the script require Standard Configuration anymore and should work with any PowerPro v4.1 configuration.

Changes since v3.1:

  • The ARB_Add, ARB_Remove and Eval aliases no longer require Standard Configuration to be enforced in order to work properly
  • The ARB_Rebuild and ARB_Edit aliases now execute without error
  • The Eval alias will now output to a message box if invoked with Shift+Enter

Alias Run Box (ARB) v3.1

ARB (Alias Run Box) v3.1 is now available at:
https://github.com/Lx/powerpro-ARB/archive/v3.1.zip

The script no longer assumes Standard Configuration, and so it should work without modification for anyone running PowerPro v4.1, with the exception of the ARB_Add, ARB_Remove and Eval aliases.  These currently require Standard Configuration to be enabled in order to use them, but disabling Standard Configuration will not interfere with the rest of the script.

A new version addressing this will be released soon.

ColourSpy v3.0

ColourSpy v3.0 has been uploaded, and is available from:
https://github.com/Lx/powerpro-ColourSpy/archive/v3.0.zip

Major changes to the last version include conformity to standard configuration; use of the CL.Functions() to build a dynamic bar when needed, resulting in the bar no longer being stored in the .PCF file; and the script has been heavily commented to offer insight into how it all works.

It is necessary to uninstall previous versions before installing this one.

For those who haven’t heard of ColourSpy, the ColourSpy bar will display the RGB and hex values of the colour underneath the mouse cursor, similar to most eyedropper tools that you can find around with the exception that this one is programmed entirely in PowerPro.

ARB v3.0 has been released and is available here:
https://github.com/Lx/powerpro-ARB/archive/v3.0.zip

  • Modified to conform to standard configuration
  • Renamed included ‘Add’, ‘Rebuild’, ‘Remove’ and ‘Edit’ aliases to ARB_Add’, ARB_Rebuild’’, ARB_Remove’’ and ‘ARB_Edit’’ respectively, as per David Troesch’s request
  • Renamed included ’‘Acronym’’ alias to ’‘Acro’’ for ease of typing
  • Added ’‘G’’, ’‘Go’’ and ‘’Eval’’ aliases—comments on their usage are included within their definitions

This release is a complete rewrite, adding the ‘Remove’ alias to the ‘Add’, ‘Edit’ and ‘Rebuild’ aliases that are included.  Also, there is no need to rebuild the entire alias cache after an add or remove through the supplied aliases, as only what’s necessary is performed.

If you wish to upgrade to this version, please note that I have renamed the ‘Refresh’ parameters and aliases to ‘Rebuild’ in an attempt to lessen the confusion as to what is performed.
