Working on a custom Kixtart.org RSS Reader script ... this script is kinda like the old bbChecker script that Jooel wrote way back. It is a script that runs in the tray. I made the "behavior" of "traying" the script much like the way TaskMgr works ... if you minimize the script, it will go into the tray - if you x-box the script, it will terminate.

When you first start the script, it will go to korg and enumerate all the current posts - from then on, it will alert on any deltas.

Les and I were testing this earlier today and had some issues with the MSN Style Popup - I made some changes and hope this works better now - please advise of any issues - may have to work on the msn-style popup more.

THIS SCRIPT REQUIRES THE LATEST DEV BUILD - BUILD 32

- I dumbed the MSN Popup down a bit.

I had probs so you dumbed it down for me huh? If I were insecure I may read too much into that. Sad

Anyway, the popup showed up for me now above the systray. Didn't seem to slide up, just appeared.

So, is this popup supposed to stay popped up all the time? It only goes away if I close out completely.
Also, when expanding it from the tray, the main window does not take focus, but rather ends up in the baackground.

lol, nah - i dumbed it down because there was just too much going on during the slide, and I wanted to kinda work on one problem at a time.

so your right - the dumbed-down version should pop (not slide), stay for five seconds, then disappear. The double-clicking of the tray icon "should" bring it into focus, but with XP - nothing surprises me.

Hey
Can we try sliding now? Plain popups are boring.

Maybe fly around the screen link MSN Winks? :p

I just posted a slider.

At the top of the script, there is a variable called

$POPUP

with settings as follows:

; 0 = none
; 1 = popup
; 2 = slide

You can also adjust the update INTERVAL by setting $INTERVAL to the number of minutes.

well, its an rss reader so any board thats supports an rss feed is supported - BUT - i customized this reader for KoRG only - parsing specific stuff to get the information thats normally buried, like the Sender and the Forum.

Not sure if this board would support an RSS feed or not ? Rod ? If so, would love to include this board too.

The other option is to expand this reader with a TreeView on the right (with hosts) and make a more generic "view" of the messages. That way should be able to include anything that has a feed.
