Re: Win32 API GetTopWindow() - how to call it

[edit] After my first cut at my reply, I found the function wxWindow::GetHWND() and it looks like what I think I need, though that is still to be confirmed, but it got me further along the road. wxWindow *pWin = GetTopWindow(); HWND hWnd = pWin->GetHandle(); [/edit] I'm, afraid, that does not do wha...

Win32 API GetTopWindow() - how to call it

In my current app, I want to get the current top window in general, not the top window of my app. When I tried to use the Win32 function GetTopWindow(), I get the wrong function returning wxWindow * instead of HWND, because wxApp also has a function with the exact same name and it takes precedence. ...

Re: wxMS - Mail Screener is now available on Github

wxMS also has a preview facility. Originally it was invoked with SPACE (same as my old Mailwasher 2.0 freebie) but after my efforts to port it to Ubuntu, where SPACE seemed to be bound to something else, I moved it to Alt-Space
HTH :)

Re: wxMS - Mail Screener is now available on Github

There is a ready-made copy as well as an install file of my own version in the directory ./Executables if you just want to try it out without rebuilding.

Re: wxMS - Mail Screener is now available on Github

The only real beef I had with my old Mailwasher was no UTF-8 support and that was bothering more with time. I do recall Eudora and had even used it for some time. Because my ISP is using and supporting POP3, I never had the need for IMAP. Same goes for bouncing messages; I found it of very little us...

wxMS - Mail Screener is now available on Github

Finally got all the ducks in a row and my mail screener project is now on github, as is the support program rcstamp - though an executable for it is part of wxMS

Re: Mailscreener and backup apps

If you actually want someone else to (re-)use your work, i think you'll have to put it on Github. If you just pack everything in a ZIP-file, upload it somewhere and post a link here, it will most likely get lost in space. Thank you; I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and get enough familiarity wi...

Mailscreener and backup apps

Please forgive the length of this post :-) As I am swamped with some more important issues right now, I am considering posting a couple of my 'working-for-me-and-serving-my-current-needs' projects on wxCode, only to find out that it has been discontinued. Up to now, I have only dabbled at the periph...

Re: Running app crashes if screensaver kick in

Finally did get the sig handler installed and by now only the release version crashes, but it seems that it crashes long before my sig handler even get a chance to be installed.; at least it never does get called. In fact, now the screen saver has nothing to do with it, It crashes as soon as it is i...

Re: Running app crashes if screensaver kick in

Thank you all for your help and ideas. After another day's testing, it seems like it may have been (a) problem(s) with the app itself and which ended up being resolved by addressing other issues - at least that is my hope ;-) Yesterday it ran a good part of the day with the screen saver off. Today i...
