A very quick fix for King Reward sound problem on http://www.mousehuntgame.com/ page after they implement the login feature. It should be working now. I have a feeling that they will still make changes to the game, so keep me posted on the latest update on how the script working as I’m no longer playing the game as often as you all.

Script Description

MouseHunt AutoBot is an advance user script to automate sounding the hunter horn in MouseHunt application in Facebook, Hi5 and offside MouseHunt page with MouseHunt version 3.0 (Longtail) supported and many other features. In a simple word, bot for MouseHunt. Time of next hunter horn and trap check will show on the web page title. The time of the next hunter horn will automatically detected without refreshing the page again. Users can customize the script according to their need by themselves such as add extra random time delay before sounding the hunter horn.

Windows Store App – Focus on TextBox when Navigated To The Page

Some time you want to make your app more user friendly by automatically focus on specify control for example search text box so that when user open the page, they can start typing the keyword they want to search rather than click on the search text box first then only start typing.

I try to use TextBox.Focus() in OnNavigatedTo, but it nothing happen. So I try to use the same method use in Silverlight by creating a DispatcherTimer and delay the focus by 0.5 second. Well, this method work out in Windows Store App. If you are interested, below are the code.

// timer to create initial focus on control
DispatcherTimer initialFocusDispatcherTimer = new DispatcherTimer();
initialFocusDispatcherTimer.Interval = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 0, 0, 500);
initialFocusDispatcherTimer.Tick += (tickSender, tickEvent) =>
    {
        initialFocusDispatcherTimer.Stop();

    // focus on search bar
    SearchTextBox.Focus(Windows.UI.Xaml.FocusState.Keyboard);
    };
initialFocusDispatcherTimer.Start();

Windows Store App – Check If File Exist or Not

Before Windows 8, to check a file exist or not on Windows Phone 7.5 or .NET can be as simple as calling the file.IsFileExist() and it will return a simple boolean indicated whatever the file exist or not. But Windows 8 team decided to have a totally different way and I had no idea why Microsoft or Windows 8 team decided to re-write it.

Anyway, here is how it work out in Windows 8 app (C# code):

public async Task<bool> IsFileExist(string path)
{
    try
    {
        await Windows.Storage.StorageFile.GetFileFromPathAsync(path);

        // file found
        return (true);
    }
    catch
    {
        // file not found
        return (false);
    }
}

Microsoft Word 2013 – Hide Markup Area When Printing

 

[Update]: I have found a solution to remove the markup area instead of hiding it.

 

When you try to print your document in Microsoft Word 2013 (I’m now using Microsoft Word 2013 beta version), be warn that there maybe a huge blank space on the right hand side which is colored in light silver / gray color. This may happen when you have a long document. When I first encountered this problem, I was shock as there was no such blank space on the right in my document and the page layout was set correctly in Word. Later I found out that this blank area is call Markup Area where users can write their comments, highlights or changes at there. Although I didn’t write any comment there, yet the Markup Area show up every time I try to print the document.
