Next week I will start studying C++ by distance, while working full-time, but I am totally determined to release a new TopWinPrio version soon.
At the moment, my desktop looks like this.
On the screenshot you can see the prototype of the new version. There will be some changes from previous version (based on the feedback I’ve received from the users). The window is now resizable too.
I have another GUI idea, but I am not sure which one will work best.
What do you, the users, think? Which layout would you prefer?
Though I am planning a version that will work as a service, this version will be a standard executable.
In previous posts I mentioned that I planned to use WPF for the GUI in the new version, well – I won’t! WPF uses more memory than Windows Forms and I prefer to keep the application as small as possible.
- Here is an explanation of how it will work:
|Status:||It will show the list of programs affected by TopWinPrio,|
|Boost tab:||The normal settings from the previous version, and some new settings (like set all apps to low priority at start, kill certain apps at start)
List of applications that should not be affected
|Tweaks tab:||List of killable apps, Autokill selected apps,
list of stoppable services, Autostop services,
List of apps who has not been used for a while
Clean up memory
Language selection (English, Swedish, Spanish)
