Re: Blog: Dynamic menus and miscounted references

Hi, gigaherz. I've read in your post that you started to work on DDE implementation. There are two windows shell replacment projects (open source, under GPL) that already contain DDE server: LiteStep (http://www.lsdev.org/) and Emerge Desktop (http://www.emergedesktop.org/). As far as I know ED is ...

Re: Blog: Dynamic menus and miscounted references

There is a whole extra section showing in the picture above. I that that was only visible when you right-click an item. I thought it didn't not go on the file menu. I was thinking maybe you need to add flags to make that disappear from the file menu or something. However, on Windows 7, that section...

Huh? that makes no sense. There is no reinitialization problem, it's just how it works. It's supposed to be that way.

Re: Blog: Dynamic menus and miscounted references

If you had read the report, I explain that the items in the file menu come straight from the context menu, and that's wrong. We don't yet have the necessary code to build the "partial" menu the way Windows does it, so I went for the next best thing, which is to use the full context menu, including a...

Re: We need an official C compiler and assembler for ReactOS

Please, before anyone wastes any more time. Let's think this through. I'm not giving any opinion on what would be best for the project, simply asking: Can any of you write such a compiler? Do any of you have the time, knowledge and resources to write such compiler? If the answer is yes, if you feel ...

Re: Blog: Merged Folders and undocumented interfaces

I forgot to tell you ppl. Last monday when I was cooking, my left hand was splashed by hot oil, and I got second degree burns. It's not too serious, but it prevented me from doing any useful work. I'm hoping to start doing things over this week, and hopefully I can be fully back on track by next mon...

Re: New ReactOS Explorer

It has been explained multiple times in multiple blog threads already: the goal is to recreate the original windows shell components, so that 3rdparty programs using those interfaces can work at all. We already have a working non-comformant shell, but the team wants "the real thing", which is what I...

Re: Blog: Merged Folders and undocumented interfaces

Always impressed by the ability of proper programmers to understand the intricacies of convoluted Windows o/s level progamming,even if not the Windows core it all seems unnecessarily complicated. Kudos to you for being able to do it. Thanks! I like to think I have a talent for understanding how thi...

Re: Blog: Merged Folders and undocumented interfaces

If I recall correctly the folders are defined in the registry, so it's theoretically possible to rename/relocate them. Problem is for many of the folders, you can't do that while programs are running inside them. Yes that is true. And sloppy coders might hard code them and then cannot find the cust...

Re: Blog: Spilling the Wine

People, as I will explain tomorrow when I write this week's report (and sorry about missing it last weekend), and as you may have already read in the collaborative TODO list I made, I already found a way to debug the leak by using our shell32.dll in windows, loaded manually by our filebrowser.exe. I...
