Module for Print dialogs (alarm after printing)
Pling for Calamus
tinkles at the end of a printing process.
Pling links itself into the Print dialog and can be switched on by
clicking on the small bell icon at the lower right of that Print
dialog. With the adjacent
Parameter button you can call up a
relevant setting dialog in which five different types of alarm can be
chosen at present:
In addition, a checkbox can be activated for ending the nuisance automatically after a set time. When the checkbox is selected (crossed) you can input in the adjoining editable field the number of seconds (max. 999) after which the row should terminate.
These settings can be saved with the
Save button and will
then be available in the same form the next time the Pling module is
loaded. (The module writes a file named PLING.SET to the MODULES
Warning: The alarm itself (i.e. the activation of Pling in
the Print dialog) can not be saved in this way. You have to save it to
the CALAMUS.SET file with
Save system settings of the Options
menu, or via the
Save button in the Print dialog box.
Pling, as the first attempt at programming a module by Ulf Dunkel, is only intended as a small jest and makes no pretensions to perfection.
