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The pricing information in this article is outdated, please visit the Free vs. Pro comparison page for an updated list of features and pricing.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

FileSeek 1.9.6 Released!

April 12, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.6! I don't normally release new versions so close together, but an important issue was brought to my attention that couldn't wait until the next scheduled release date. This new version fixes a major issue with folder name matching when using the "include files filter". It should now work as expected, without skipping any folders. I also took this opportunity to include a couple of new features as well. The results list now shows each file's correct icon, instead of a generic icon. To make multiple-folder searches easier, there is now a "Browse & Append" button on the main window. If you use this button, the folder you select will be appended to your search path instead of replacing it.

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 1.9.6 as soon as possible so that folder searching will start working as expected. Thanks everyone!

FileSeek 1.9.5 Released!

April 7, 2010

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.5! This release adds a few requested options, as well as fixing some minor interface glitches. The biggest change is the addition of an option to toggle sub-folder searching. Now you can choose whether to search only the selected folder, or the folder and all sub-folders. Also, the FileSeek window will now remember it's last position and state between uses. This should make it much easier for anyone who frequently opens and closes FileSeek and has to keep moving the window around. To see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. Thanks everyone!

DisplayFusion Video Roundup

March 30, 2010
DisplayFusion has been featured in a number of excellent YouTube videos, and I thought I would take some time today to highlight a few of them. This is not a complete list of all the videos about DisplayFusion, just a few randomly selected videos. I am not responsible for any of the content in these videos. Some of the videos are about older versions of DisplayFusion so the information may be a bit out of date, but I think they still have some useful tips. Enjoy!
