PortableApps Menu Mod r12 - *OUTDATED*

PortableApps Menu Mod r13 is out!

New post is here: Linky

[Forums link removed by moderator JTH. You may only link to an open source project, not promote another website.]

File is in RAR format, use 7-Zip, WinRAR or another RAR-compatable archive extractor to extract it. To install, just drop the folder into your PortableApps folder and follow the instructions in 'readme_mod.txt' to install any locale or theme files.

Thanks to Tewan for hosting, and everyone else who offered ;).

EDIT: Because of the huge response to PAM MOD, and the fact we got to two pages in under a day in this topic, Tewan and I have set up a forum for PAM MOD (I hope I'm not breaking any rules <.>

I had a few ideas I'd like, not sure how much of a hassle it would be though.

1. Make the window movable.
2. Have an option to show in the taskbar also instead of just the system tray.
3. Password protection >:D

edit: Oh yeah, check your mail when you get a chance; I'm not sure if you got that post in the last thread.

1. Possible already by using OffsetX and OffsetY in the theme.ini file Wink
2. Surprisingly hard 0.o. I'll work on it a bit more tomorrow
3. Pretty pointless really, as you can just delete/rename the ini file and it'll lose the password.

Something that might fix the icons thing is to do the Refresh Menus after you change the theme, maybe he could automate that?

The PortableAppsLogo is on top of the buttons, so you're clicking on the logo instead of the buttons (even when it's invisible). Set their height, width, left and top parameters to 0 ;).

? I'm not sure what you meant by that, but if you have more apps than will wit, the scroll bar activates. Changing the height of the list would invalidate all of the themes currently in existence, and changing which apps you see is as easy as right clicking certain apps and setting them to Hide, then using the Options Unhide option to show all hidden apps, and then hide all hidden apps.

One of the suggestions, under consideration for future releases, is a folder tree in the App list, and another is tabs with grouped programs.

Does your suggestion fall into any of that? if not, elaborate Biggrin

What he means is there's a preset limit of apps until the scrollbar enables.

For example, I'll get upto (random number) 20 apps then the program adds a scroller for the 21st... he wants to know if he can make the list bigger, that way he can make a theme with a huge list instead of the preset amount. (or a tiny list)

When you click on an

When you click on an application in the menu, you're actually clicking on one of 20 buttons, each corresponding to an application.

The menu stores all the apps in a giant list and all the buttons in another list.

When we display the buttons (IE after startup or refreshing), we make a new list of apps and copy that list to the list of buttons, ignoring any that can't fit (and hiding any extra buttons). This means that (on a normal version of PAM) apps 1-20 will display. When we scroll down, we just tell the application to ignore the first application in the list, and when we scroll up we tell it not to.

By dynamically adding more buttons and sticking them in a bigger list, we can make the menu longer. In fact, the only mention of 20 in the entire process is when the list is made (easily fixed), so the real problem is adding buttons (which is actually quite simple if you know how to do it).

Flicker with fade disabled, themes refresh

Nice work, just two minor nits to pick Smile

With the fade effect disabled, when showing the menu, it first shows a black window and then the menu in that window, producing a flicker that's a teeny bit annoying.

It would be nice if it checked for changes to the available themes when showing the themes menu, rather than having to restart the app, maybe by just checking the modification time on the themes directory. Failing that, an option to rescan the themes directory explicitly.

Refresh Menus will rescan the directory ;). I won't make it refresh on menu display, because it can take a while on slower flash drives (like mine :P), and it can be really annoying if you select it by mistake.

As for the flicker, I've fixed it. No idea how or why it works now, but it does :P.

c[x. the header.bmp doesn't revert to the defualt portable apps.com when you swtich to a theme without a banner.bmp. PAM should use the original portableapps.com header if when switching theme and the header.bmp is not avaliable for that theme.

Simple, elegant, fits in... I like it :). I'd recommend moving [imgPortableAppsLogoPixel] over the little black box, that way you'd be able to stick a BMP in and have it display there ;).

c[x. hmm.. there seems to be something rong. if i put an image that has white background. it will make those white areas transparent. shouldn't it only do this with that pink colour? i thnk it also does this with every other colour. if you hav an image with a brown(and other colours) border, that part will be become see through . it'd be great if you could fix this. also when you swtich to a theme without a header.bmp it should use the defauly portableapps.com logo instead of using the header.bmp from the previous theme

Hmm... I'm not entirely

Hmm... I'm not entirely sure, but I *think* the upper-left pixel determines the transparency of the image. In other words, if that pixel is purple, then everything that shade of purple will become transparent. If it's white, everything white becomes transparent. Same with any color. Unless there are any objections, I'll probably leave it like that so you can change the transparency color if you're using FF00FF (or whichever color I'd use or transparency).

c[x. can't you make this an option? like put it as an option in the theme.ini so u can pick which colours are transparent. or if the theme.ini isn't avaliable in the theme then it'll use the defualt colour like FF00FF.

THANK YOU!

Thank you SO much for adding ALL of the features I asked, I can't believe you did, you are very efficient, and I will have to admit, I love this so much more than the original now, no offence to John, because he did start it all and writecreate the original menu, as well as made MANY great apps portable.

But thank you SO MUCH netroid, this is AMAZING!

I've added all of your suggestions. However, unlike the original wallpaper-changer mod I'm using a menu option to enable/disable the wallpaper swapper.

As much as I like the Vista

As much as I like the Vista theme, I'm going to avoid including it in case Microsoft gets ticked off at me, and also because it'll add 300kb to the download size (which isn't much, but it all adds up). As for translations, I'm considering adding them as they're small and simple, but it'd mean delaying releases when I change the locale files.

Bug

The message box 'Add A New App' is half sized (and resize able) in R11, so the text is cut off in languages other than English!

Questions/Suggestions

First I want to say great work on this mod so far!

1. I want to shift the app buttons a little to the right. Is this possible currently?

2. Would it be possible to use images on the app buttons? Make them actual buttons with normal, selected , and pressed states , with customizable fonts for each state.

3. Can the wallpaper be specified in the theme.ini?

3.1 I'd suggest a menu item like...

Wallpaper > None
............Default
............Theme
that should cover all the bases for wallpaper

3.2 I like the idea of a common directory for wallpapers, maybe "x:PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\Data\Wallpapers" We would then be able to setup the theme archives to extract to "x:PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\Data" and have everything dumped to the proper folders.

4. Could you make an option to have the Backup button point to a seperate program?
I don't know if I would make use of it but I thought some of the people who use other backup apps, like Toucan, might like that feature.

I know that in R12 you'll be able to position the app buttons.
