CapTime is a little program that changes the title of the active window
as you wish.
It can add the time and date,
decorations, and even your name or a self-note. On the new version:
Added a remove \ replace list, so
it can change parts of the title (like that annoying '- Microsoft Internet
Explorer' you see on every page), And optional systray Icon.
Just copy the files from the Zip to any directory you want,
and start it. that's it. Installation is over.
You may need to download Microsoft's
Visual Basic 6 Runtime Dlls.
Adding To The Title
Use these parameters on the 'Format' text box
to edit the active caption.
CapTime will automatically change them
according to your computer.
You MUST use lower or upper case
letters, as showen, or it just wouldn't work.
For example: the format $c - $tt will show Internet Explorer
- $c - The original title of the window
- $tt - Long Time (12:34:56)
- $t - Short Time (12:34)
- $ms - Milliseconds (78 for high speeds only. EG: "$tt.$ms"
- $dd - Long Date (28 April, 1983)
- $di - Day (Friday)
- $ds - Short Day (Fri)
- $dn - Day in the Month (28)
- $dm - Month (April)
- $dsm - Month no. (04)
- $dy - Year (1983)
- $dsy - Short Year (83)
- $d - Short Date (28/04/83)
- $p - Current system path
- Anything else you write will stay the same
The Format $c Sucks will change the title to
Internet Explorer Sucks,
and ~~ $c ~~ $t ~~ will
show ~~ Notepad ~~ 12:34 ~~.
The program includes some nice formats in the format list (btw, it is
not a recent list).
Future version will include additional parameters,
like free memory, and other things I might think of.
Changing The Title
The new version can also remove or replace parts from the
original title. For example: to remove - Microsoft Internet Explorer
from the title, add it to the list. If you want to replace, Use
>>>. For Example: adding Word>>>Notepad
will change word's title to 'Notepad'.
replace and remove are case sensitive, so Microsoft is not the same
2) Replace and Remove are stupid. If you have the word Example,
and you remove mp and al; you'll get Exe.
Command Line Parameters
Use this from the command line or at shortcuts (for example: Captime /noicon)
- /noicon - Hides the systary icon. To show captime, run the program again.
