     Flying Windows claims fully back the valuable work area of your IDE! No unneeded tool or property window is open when writing code or designing a form. Now the whole screen belongs to you to design your form or write some code! And when you need a tool/property window: One quick move (no mouseclick!) of your mouse is enough to get it back / take it away. ___ 2nd hilite: Small property windows for controls like the known tooltips are assisting your form design! ___ And some more nice gimmicks... ____ Advertisement stop. ;) - To the facts: Implemented in Flying Windows so far * Hotcorners for most used tool windows (toolbox, properties, project explorer and immediate window) * Empty the immediate window when ctrl key is pressed on opening by hotcorner. * Tooltip windows for controls showing the name and the most important properties. * Click on a property value in the tooltip window with ctrl key pressed puts this value into the clipboard. * Tooltip windows are moveable by caption bar. Leave them open with ctrl key pressed when mouse leaves tooltip window. Close them with a simple mouseclick. * Show mouse pointers absolut screen coordinates in VB IDEs title bar in pixel. * With an open source code pane moving the mouse to the left border of the screen opens the coresponding designer window (Shift-F7) and reverse. * The size of comboboxes of a code pane are increased to show much more values without a need for boring scrolling. ________ Background: To do all of this I had to dig very deep into VB IDEs COM interface and so here is hard stuff like 'Get a reference to the control under the mouse' and more ... _______ Enjoy the new feeling in programming VB! ____ Regards LiTe _________________________________________________ NEW VERSION 2.5.0 - 10/20/2004: Now your code is flying, too! I have added a powerfull TEXT AUTOCOMPLETE feature to speedup your coding. Please read ReadMe_First.Txt or code header for details. _____________________________________________ Thx for your comments and votes - they show me that you see the 160 hours which are in this tool now.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
