Dear All

i have a couple of new scf toolbars - however i would like to get permission for including scripts into it before posting here.

should i interpret silence as permission? please let me know if you are ok with it (or not), then i know if i have to go on with this effort or retire.. (all toolbars will be encrypted)

Thanks
Max

I'd guess you might need to start PM'ing people directly if they have not responded. Especially when its hard to know who should respond until its known what plugins you'd like to include :)

Max,

I'm working the bugs out of a system that will allow you to create the toolbars without distributing or modifying the scripts. It is a new method that queries if a script is available to be loaded, and if it is, then it will allow a button to be created. If not, it skips that button.

This would solve many problems - no script distribution issues, no installing scripts that might not be needed by various users, and all the relevant buttons for the available scripts.

The remaining issue is dealing with Organizer and subfolders, but that's not too big an issue.

I'm sure you'll find some more, like scripts with submenues... ;)

In this case I find it useful to give the user the choice which call he likes to see as a button. ( Six submenues and six button for only one script can blow up every screen ) Or you create the long wanted floating toolbar :D

Max, I agree with Chris that you will probably get a better response by contacting each author personally using a PM.

Have you been in contact with Rick about a Toolbar plugin? Rick's idea sounds like a good solution for everyone.

I have confirmed that Organizer won't be the hangup for a Toolbar plugin, nor will subfolders. The Toolbar plugin can piggyback on Organizer's file parsing structure and utilize the "SmustardOganizerExcludeFolders.txt" file for determining folders to not parse.

Everything is looking very good for a plugin that can read the available .rb files and create toolbars & buttons for them, and not create buttons for .rb files that aren't on the user's hard drive. It will be the best of both worlds - buttons for available scripts and no distribution issues (as it won't be necessary).

My apologies, everyone. My day job, night job, and family are keeping me very, very busy. I've been in contact with Max, and we are trying to work out a functional solution.

UPDATE: I just sent Max a file to incorprate into his toolbars for testing. If everything works as I hope, an update should be right around the corner.
