ClipboardFusion 2.0.1 Released!

June 7, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of ClipboardFusion 2.0.1! I received quite a bit of feedback from the 2.0 release, and to my surprise the Macro feature turned out to be more popular than I imagined it would be. As a result, I have enhanced the Macro editor substantially for this release. It now has line numbers, a re-sizable text area and code syntax highlighting. You can also now use functions in the MacroAPI namespace, and download pre-made Macros from the new Macro sharing area. Another major change is the Clipboard History feature, accessible through the system tray menu. This simple feature just stores your last used clipboard text and allows you to quickly access it. There are also a number of important bug-fixes that help to make this version the most stable release yet!

I would encourage everyone to download version 2.0.1 today to take advantage of everything ClipboardFusion has to offer. Thanks everyone!

FileSeek 1.9.7 Released!

May 14, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.7! I received some excellent suggestions from a few different people after the 1.9.6 release, and this new release is the result of those ideas. There are also a couple of small bug fixes as well, which are detailed in the change log. Here is a quick list of the things that have changed in this release:

  • Added an option to automatically toggle File and Folder name matching when the Query field is left blank
  • Pressing the "Enter" key while a search result item is selected will now open that result item
  • Remembers the column widths of the search result list
  • Filenames are now correctly matched when the file has no extension

If you would like to see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. I would encourage everyone to update to version 1.9.7 to take advantage of these new features. Thanks everyone!

ClipboardFusion 2.0.0 Released!

May 14, 2010

The pricing information in this article is outdated, please visit the Free vs. Pro comparison page for an updated list of features and pricing.

I am very happy to announce the release of ClipboardFusion 2! This release isn't just a new version of the software, it comes complete with a new online service and a completely new website, located at The new online service is an optional service that allows you to share your clipboard between computers. Continue reading to find out more about the online service, as well as the other new features and improvements!

New Features and Improvements

The new ClipboardFusion 2 release comes with a couple of new features, but the existing features have also been improved as well. The Text Scrubbing feature now lets you scrub white space from the beginning and/or end of your clipboard text. There is also a new Text Scrubbing mode that requires you to double-copy some text before it is scrubbed. This way you can avoid scrubbing all the time, and you don't need to use any HotKeys or menu options.

There are now 9 HotKeys available, compared with 2 in the previous version. These HotKeys let you enable/disable ClipboardFusion features, scrub text and perform various operations with the new ClipboardFusion Online service.

Another new feature is the addition of fully programmable Macros. These Macros can be written using C# right inside the ClipboardFusion interface. If you need to manipulate your clipboard text in a way that ClipboardFusion doesn't support, just write a Macro to perform the operation. If you need help creating any Macros, just post a new topic in the ClipboardFusion Support Forum and someone will be happy to help you out.

ClipboardFusion Online

ClipboardFusion Online is the new online service behind the ClipboardFusion 2 release. This new service allows you to share your clipboard with other computers, and soon your mobile devices as well. Sync your clipboard items with the online service, then you have access to them anywhere you are. It is an optional service that is free to use for 2 months, and I would encourage everyone to give it a try. It is completely free to try out, with no obligation to purchase.

Update Today

Even if you don't intend to use the new online service, there are a ton of bug fixes that should benefit everyone. I would encourage everyone to update to the new version today and take control of your clipboard!

Converting C++ Data Types to C#

April 12, 2010

If you've ever had to write any interop code to use an unmanaged library in your C# application, you know how tricky it can be to get the data types correct. I often find myself scouring the internet looking for the correct conversions, so I thought I would document everything I have learned so far. This is by no means a comprehensive list of all C++ data types, just the ones I find myself frequently writing interop code for.

C++ Type C# Type Size
BOOL bool 1 byte
BYTE byte 1 byte
CHAR byte 1 byte
DECIMAL Decimal 16 bytes
DOUBLE double 8 bytes
DWORD uint, UInt32 4 bytes
FLOAT float, single 4 bytes
INT, signed int int, Int32 4 bytes
INT16, signed short int short, Int16 2 bytes
INT32, signed int int, Int32 4 bytes
INT64 long, Int64 8 bytes
LONG int, Int32 4 bytes
LONG32, signed int int, Int32 4 bytes
LONG64 long, Int64 8 bytes
LONGLONG long, Int64 8 bytes
SHORT, signed short int short, Int16 2 bytes
UCHAR, unsigned char byte 1 byte
UINT, unsigned int uint, UInt32 4 bytes
UINT16, WORD ushort, UInt16 2 bytes
UINT32, unsigned int uint, UInt32 4 bytes
UINT64 ulong, UInt64 8 bytes
ULONG, unsigned long uint, UInt32 4 bytes
ULONG32 uint, UInt32 4 bytes
ULONG64 ulong, UInt64 8 bytes
ULONGLONG ulong, UInt64 8 bytes
WORD ushort 2 bytes
void*, pointers IntPtr x86=4 bytes, x64=8 bytes
