Hi jai_magical,

tested Preme and find it wonderful. Thanks for that! I especially like the windows switch corner and the double escape thingie.

Nevertheless, I have some feature requests:
1) Could you broaden the windows switch corner to be a windows switch line? I have a two monitor setup and it can be a long way to the upper left corner. Just moving the mouse to the upper border would be a great enhancement.
2) Would you consider making the source code available? I´d like to learn from your expertise and would like to strip down functionality to my needs.
3) One little annoyance in the touch slide function: windows a resized to a specific size and are not restored if they float back to their position :-(
4) The touch start function does not work here, nothing happens.

Thanks,
Rob

You could adjust the code I posted to work on the top border of the screen by removing the checks for x coordinate.

Thanks fragman,

this was indeed the relevant piece of code for me. I adapted it to my needs and am happy now :-)

To RobOtter,

Thanks for your comments. touch slide function will be debuged in the next version. And the Touch start, I have realised and debugged in my code.

For the two monitor setup, I'm not sure if I have a chance to setup two monitor for coding this feature. Because now I'm very busy. If I have free time enough, I will do this.

To Paxx,

I may compile a specific version for you.

Small question, how are you detecting the area below the min/max/close buttons? Sending a hittest message tells me that area belongs to the buttons?

I detect by X-Y coordinate, position and width of window.

But different skins could have different button heights?

Hi Jai_Magical, is it possible to change the corner for the windows switcher? I would like the top-right corner to have this functionality (not the top-left as is the current behavior)
Maybe this option could be added in the future.

I really like he slide feature. I can't find any app or script that does it like this. Anyone suggest something?

Shame it doesn't work on my FF.

Like suggested, could do with a hotkey for stuff that doesn't have the windows shell frame.

GJ.

Have you tried my program 7plus? It offers a similar feature, among many others.

Ah, great. I did see it posted here but it was quite late and I didn't look over it properly.

Thanks!
