Based on a change/enhancement request I wrote the attached program to speed up the process and make it easy to change a value in a numeric input field. Take a look at this post for some background on this http://plogue.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5931
As the topic of this post says, it only works in Windows. I have both an XP and and Win7 machine and it appears to work in both. It's called PBMod.exe for now, if you have a better name, let me know. I am open to suggestions and or comments. Let me know what you all think.
(Below is from the help message in the program)
In Bidule when you change a value you have to hit ENTER to save the value.
After you hit ENTER the cursor is positioned at the end of the value just
entered. If you want to change the value you have to delete what is there,
then enter in a new value. What this program does is change that behavior, it
basically adds a SHIFT-HOME keystroke, after the ENTER so the entire value is
highlighted and ready to be replace by any new value typed. Additionally if
you press certain keystroke combinations (aka Hotkeys) the value will be
incremented or decremented by a value(s) that you can set.
There are 4 of these Hotkeys and each can have it's own inc/dec value
(actually there are 8 Hotkeys but only 4 values, see Hotkeys below.)
Additionally there can be multiple sets of these values based on the name
of the Bidule control and/or the specific edit control name. The string you put
in the "In Bidule Name" will be a match if it is in anywhere in the Bidule
name (to see the active control name hold the Windows Key and Left Click on
the control.) If you leave the Control name blank it will work on all input
fields in the window.
HotKeys: (for incrementing and decrementing the values):
Up/Down Arrow or Mouse Wheel will inc/dec the number based on your settings.
Above while holding down Ctrl
Above while holding down Alt
Above while holding down Ctrl-Alt
Ctrl-Alt b : will bring up the values editor
Window Key + Left Mouse Click : will show the control name.
(note: Ctrl-C will copy it to clipboard)
All settings are saved to an ini file in the Documents and Settings App
Data folder for the current user. When the program is running it will
show in the Windows Tray. You can right click on it to exit, pause, or
temporarily suspend the hotkeys. Feedback is welcome, just post a
message in the Plogue/Bidule forum where you got this application.
