Tooling Up: Clickable Script Programs

Posted 12-13-2012 at 02:10 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 12-23-2012 at 04:15 PM by rainbowsally

Note: shell-exec and lq-launch (the lq version) are now included in the mc2 libLQ d/load. They are in the examples/goodies folders and can be copied directly into your ~/bin folder and should be usable immediately with no changes to your paths required.
---------------------------------------

Today's Features
  • Clickable sequential backup utility. You'll need to create a program to copy it to the directory you want to use it in. That's pretty easy, but well.. maybe not.

A Stand Alone executable QT MsgBox with Stays On Top attribute

Today's Features:
  • A non-modal qt based dialog/message box that STAYS ON TOP of the window stack.
  • How to center a window on the screen.
  • Using the short optargs to parse the options.

The msgbox utility in the 'extras' folders of the mc2 d/load (see link below) uses xmessage for the display widget. That makes it independent of QT so it can run on any computer that has the X windowing system.
