can I hide the login and password fields ?

Post by RGomes »

Hi there

Its a very good tool, congratulations. What I´d like to now is:

can I hide the login and password fields ?
can the server just log in whithout asking to connect ?
can I stop the status windows from showing ?
what is the helpdesk.txt syntax ?

Will the PCHelpWare be free forever ?

Thanks.

can I hide the login and password fields ?
No, but as the code is available, you can alter the source code.
can the server just log in whithout asking to connect ?
-direct
In this case, you don't have the login box
can I stop the status windows from showing ?
Not on initial startup, but you can pres the (x)
what is the helpdesk.txt syntax ?
$=variable

Direct
-connect $viewer_ip:$viewer_port [-password $md5_hash_passwd] [-direct] [-autoreconnect]

Direct Alias
-connect dyn:$viewer_port -dynhost $repeater_ip:$dynalias_port -dynname $myalias [-password $md5_hash_passwd] [-direct] [-autoreconnect]

Repeater
-connect $repeater_ip:$viewer_port_repeater -id xxxx [-proxy] [-password $md5_hash_passwd] [-direct] [-autoreconnect]



-id xxxx xxxx 1-9999, can be replaced by "ask" [ -id ask]
$md5_hash_passwd can be replaced by "ask" [-password ask]
The user on the server need to enter the plain password.
$myalias can be replaced by "ask" [-dynname ask]
[-direct] don't show login window, can not be used together with "ask"
[-autoreconnect] reconnect when connection breaks
[-proxy] When -proxy is used, the server check the registry and
search the defined http proxy. If the server PC is not using a http
proxy server, the connection use the $repeater_ip:$viewer_port_repeater

Will the PCHelpWare be free forever ?
Yep

I am testing the PcHelpWare in my network without the mirror driver.

When I press ( x ) to close the status window the mouse stops responding on the viewer window and I have to go to the other PC and move the mouse to get it working again.

if I use the -direct option the login box does not show when connecting but it apears again when I Toggle Transparent.

I experienced exactly the same problem in my VMWare environment. When I closed the "Info Dialog" the viewer wasn't responding anymore. I had to switch to the VMWare machine where PCHW server is running on and move the mouse. After some seconds things get flowing again and the PCHW viewer is working again.

There must be something wrong when closing the "Info Dialog".

This is why I suggested you to only HIDE the window when the user presses [x] so this way the dialog can still receive/process messages.

You as well could easily SHOW the "Info Dialog" again; triggered from Viewer side or from server side (systray entry: Show Info Dialog) . Something which is not possible at the moment. If the "Info Dialog" is closed, there is no way to display it again.

Regards,
Oliver

The flashing is led is the cause
findwindow/sendmessage

Between find and send window get closed, and sendmessage wait
until message finished..

Sendmessage replace by Postmessage (less overhead), and messages
are not critical.

Close replaced by Hide and added "Show Log" in systray.
