FormSnapper.NET

Since Winamp, men dream about coding apps that have windows that snap to each other. But, many of them doesn’t do just yet. Do you want to join the snappiest of them? Read on...

I have a application (among many others) that I created, http://www.videophill.com, that usually runs in multiple instances, and user has the problem (it really isn’t the problem, it’s rather the issue) how to arrange the windows side by side. You can check the screenshots of it below. All those were taken before FormSnapper.NET was used.

Usually, the problem is to snap the window to the edges of the screen. Windows 7 have it covered somehow, but since my application uses fixed size windows, again, no help there.

Next, the problem is in the fact that to snap to the windows, one should know boundaries of all other windows. And knowing boundaries of windows that are in separate process is not so easy.

All in all, I took some time, performed some research, and one week later, the FormSnapper is born. I tested it in all my applications, and it performed great.

 

 

I know that maybe you can cook your own solution in somewhat less time (I used to be FAST programmer, but not anymore), but let me propose something else for you; try my component. You can download the solution containing test project right away, and see how it works. You can even try to host it in your own applications. Only limitation of the TRIAL component is that it won’t work past 10 minutes of its usage.

 

So, you can buy Reflector and crack it, but I guess that the better idea is to BUY LICENSED VERSION from me and get:

And when I say that it costs only $19.95 and is COMPLETELY ROYALTY FREE, do you really think that you will save money coding it yourself?

And yeah, one last thing; if you have multiple window types, and want only one window type to be aware of same window type and snap only to it, I invented ‘Family’ property of the component. So only forms with same Families will be snapping to each other.

 

That's it.  If you want to ask me something about the component, please use this mail.
