wbDOMData Extender(Beta 5/5)
« on: February 10, 2021, 12:59:04 pm »
Somebody make me stop...

Since I often have need of image processing capabilities when I am parsing HTML and XML I decided to add image capabilities to my Extender.  ImageMagick is so cumbersome and a pain to work with so thought I would solve those issues and maybe help others as well who might be missing the Image Extender.  It only handles BMP, JPG and TIFF right now.  Still working on some of the error trapping but thought I would throw it out here so interested parties could bang on it and help catch anything I missed.

For good or ill I also rolled the SQLite Extender into this one.   Seemed like too much hassle to have multiple extenders so now I am back to the Dialog Extender and this one.

I've been following your posts about this extender and download every new version. Unfortunately that's all I've been able to accomplish and wish I had time to play with it. I'm excited to give it a try at some point in the future.

Thank you for all your hard work!  :D

Thanks.

I now have PNG files working and with Tony flipping another Extender light switch I've filled in some potential holes.

I can confirm that PNG is working great.  Don't forget to add it to the help file.

BTW the imDisplay() function is pretty cool.  Gives me ideas for cool stuff to do.

Thanks for the feedback and the reminder.  I kept thinking I needed to do something with the help and even had it open but couldn't remember changing anything that needed an update to the Help.  Guess I know what now :)

I love the display thing too.   Makes using all the other functions so much easier in addition to just being able to view an image.    Also, if you haven't stumbled upon it.  You can close the display by just hitting Enter.  Probably should put that in the Help as well.

Expanded Files Types some more.  Probably about to the end of that part.   Added some options for the Display() function.   Seems like there is more but not sure what....probably just thinking about all the rabbits I chased that got away.

...and for when you are bored there is imTripping().

Added some more options to imTripping().

Added a Slideshow option.   Nothing fancy.   Couldn't figure out a way to do transitions.   Maybe some day.

Yes.  I fear some of those could be addictive.
