ui-tools implementation (ui-tools.cpp)

The following changes are in the code below, but are listed in case you already have the file and want to fix it yourself (and see the context of the problem).

Changelog Dec 15 2012 (second prob)
"Unknown error" msg issued when it's not an error.

Here's the fix. Whenever we call
Code:
  ok = find_slots(...);
we need to return 'true' without acting on the return values but not return 'false'...

A Stand Alone executable QT MsgBox with Stays On Top attribute

I particularly like the file
