    What is Chimer?

    Chimer is a simple utility that allows you to play a chime on the hour between the hours you specify. Set it and forget it!

    Chimer 1.3 provides a simple UI that provides you the following options:

    * Set the chime starting hour (default 8AM)
    * Set the chime end hour (default 8PM)
    * Select and test the .wav file to be used for the chime (default
    Alarm1.wav) from a list of choices in the Windows directory
    * Set the volume of the chime (default 200, max 256)
    * Start Chiming (queues up the notifications to chime once an hour
    between the hours you specify)
    * Turn Off Chimer (kills the notifications)


    Installation:
    Covered in the README in both the CAB and ZIP versions.
    For simple installation, choose the CAB Install zip file.

    -- Launch the Chimer and set up chiming as you would like

    -- Once you have set your start hour, end hour, and chime file, choose Start Chiming! to queue everything up. If you want to use all my defaults, then just hit "Start Chiming!" and all the default values will be used:
    Start Time - 8AM
    End Time - 8PM
    Chime File - Alarm1.wav (in the Windows directory)
    Chime Volume - 200

    Enjoy!

    Future Enhancements -- figure out how to play the chime without turning on the screen.

    Nice script Scotty.
    Would you like to take part in a joint project
    Reminder 1.2
    The goal,
    1)control turning on and off
    2)Timer Control over reminders
    4)Reminder sound will not kick in till 2 min after notification Q.
    3)Have choice with different reminder sounds for missed calls,V-mail,Text message and e-mail.

    Hmmm,
    Thinking about it Why not build led alert choice into it as well.It will be a very long script f,sure.

    Also, can you help me with some notification codes? See the "Xcast" thread.

    Thanks,

    May the ForceCast be with you.

    Question; can we make Chimer NOT wake the device. I've tested it a few times and on each hour it wakes to play the sound.

    Thanks!

    unfortunately not at the moment. The sound won't play if the device is off.

    Your answer to no wake ups

    %i% = 10
    if expression %i% > 1
    PlaySound "\Program Files\MortScript\Manager-Alerts\notify.wav"
    sleep 0
    %i% = %i% -1
    endIf

    That's true, but is there a way to keep the display off. It seems to work sometimes and not others apparently. With the reminder script I don't recall it turning on the display when it woke up.

    huh? Is that suppose to be in a loop? That code makes no sense.

    Thanks slingbox & hannip. I'll continue to follow the thread b/c I also have no clue what that code is doing....but I do appreciate your efforts.

    Sorry, I meant I could not get the sound to play if the screen was off..this might be because the script doesn't run continuously, it only runs at scheduled times..

    It,s whats I used in Reminder1.1 to get reminder sound with no screen wake up every 2 min..

    Can you please explain it? It looks to me that it does nothing at all other than calling Play

    Very nice as always Scotty! In your next version could you add a test chime feature like you have with TreoVibe and maybe a list of chimes to choose from. Keep up the good work!

    Test Chime will be a simple addition...building an array of choices based on the wav files in one or more directories more of a challenge but think jdcochran had worked on something similar..will need to check it out

    found it and can tweak it to kill 2 birds with one stone...select file and then play it once you choose it!

    Ok, got it working thanks to jdcochran's works...CAB file coming soon... I couldn't figure out how to get it set right to allow the user to enter a directory, so for now it will populate the list based on wav files in the Windows directory only....

    ... and youse guys thought I was juss playin around with a script that wrote a script.

    The ForEach is a powerful command.

    Reminds me of the most powerful line of code I ever wrote.

    MS Dos 5.x ---

    FOR %1 in %2 Do %3

    or sumtin close to that.

    I called it BATCH.BAT

    Used it to BATCH print files, among other things.
