VWPreview v1.6 - Steven Phillips Description: This VirtuaWin module creates a preview of all desktops in either a window or full screen mode allowing the user to see all their desktops. Left clicking on a desktop will change to that desktop, right clicking anywhere will open the module's setup dialog. The Tab, Shift+Tab and Enter keys can also be used to change desktops, Esc closes the preview. The module requires VirtuaWin version 4.2 or above. The module can also provide basic desktop change transition effects, for these version 4.3 of VirtuaWin or above is required. Installation: Copy VWPreview.exe into the VirtuaWin modules directory. Notes: * The module supports 2 modes, Desktop Preview which uses the whole screen and Desktop Select which uses a standard window (size is configurable). * The module can also provide desktop change transition effect if using VirtuaWin v4.3 or later. * The module has not been tested on multiple monitor systems and while the author does not envisage any particularly nasty problems the full screen preview or transition effects are unlikely to work well. * Desktops which have not yet been visited will be rendered largely blank using the background colour, if a background image is being used the background colour is typically black which can make the preview display rather unhelpful. A future enhancement would be to initialise these desktops to the background image instead. * There are now two time values in the vwpreview.cfg file: fulUdTm1# - Initial update time (in ms) used to update all previews, default is 2sec (i.e. 2000) fulUdTm2# - Continued update time (in ms), default is 10sec. * Found that update does not work well when Windows Themes are used because the screen has not been properly updated. To avoid the problem a pause is needed to allow the screen to be redrawn, set option 'fulUdPas#' in the vwpreview.cfg file to say 500 for a half second pause.

Copyright (c) 2010-2011 VirtuaWin (virtuawin@home.se) HISTORY Ver 1.6 - 2011/03/23 * 3213143 Fixed slide-on from left or top when not using full sized images. Ver 1.5 - 2011/02/20 * 3152494 Merged in patch submitted by rolfbrocke adding slide-on and center zoom transition effects. * Added new Effect duration setting. Ver 1.4 - 2010/09/12 * 3064557 Implemented a new Continuous update option which, when disabled, stops the update once all desktops have been updated. Also changed to using two update times, an initial time for a quick update and a second timer for slower continued update. * 3064553 Implemented some basic desktop change transition effects, bit slow as it doesn't use DirectX * 3025866 Fixed VirtuaWin window focus problem. * 3025763 Fixed key input issue. Ver 1.3 - 2010/07/10 * 3025853 Stopped preview window appearing in the desktop previews. * 3025723 Fixed further preview dialog window issues on Windows XP. * 3025759 Improved the quality of the desktop images by using HALFTONE on the platforms which support it. * 3025763 Fixed keyboard control when preview is opened via the VirtuaWin control menu Ver 1.2 - 2010/06/21 * Fixed preview dialog window issues on Windows XP. Ver 1.1 - 2010/06/15 * Added Full Screen 'Update desktop previews' option - this option should be used with care as it must continually cycle through all desktops so the computer will be constantly working; the screen will also flash as it updates the preview image for a desktop. Other side effects include changing desktop even when Escape is pressed because this simply closes the preview window and therefore will leave you on a random desktop. If the update speed is not right for you then edit the "fulUdtim# 1000" line in vwpreview.cfg file located in the VirtuaWin Config directory (VirtuaWin -> Setup -> Expert -> Explore Config), 1000 = 1sec, save changes then Reload modules (VirtuaWin -> Setup -> Modules -> Reload); if you make this number too small the desktop previews will be wrong (missing windows or windows from other desktops etc), making this number large will reduce the load on your computer. * Added Window 'Close after desktop change', if disabled VWPreivew will automatically update the preview (update rate can be changed by editing "winUdtim# 1000" line - see option above). This make VWPreview act more like a very basic desktop pager. Ver 1.0 - 2010/06/10 * Initial release
