SciLor's LeoCameraAnyKey v0.5.1

attachment.php


The problem with those new Devices is that they lack of hardkeys. The HD2, Touch HD, HD Mini and Touch Pro 2 lack of a camera button. Why use the touchscreen when you may use any Hardware button to take a photo and zoom in/out :).

Devices that are proven to be working:
-HTC HD2 aka. HTC Leo
-HTC Touch HD aka. HTC Blackstone
-HTC Touch Pro 2
-HTC HD Mini
-HTC Touch Diamond 2


Just install, close any open HTC Camera windows and run it over one of my icons. If you are able to change to volume, update your HTC Camera.


Thank you Star for your icons and the initial idea!

-Enhancement: Catching even more buttons
-Enhancement: Catching no buttons, when camera not in foreground

-Enhancement: Catching of nearly all available buttons, mainly to have the free choice and a work around for that volume panel bug.

-Fix: Sometimes slow zoom.

v0.3.5 (2010-08-03)

Thanks for this one Scilor. Very happy to see that someone finally faces this problem after all the time. Some slight suggestions:

It would be great if your programm could ran as a (less-resource-and-battery-eating) service in the background, which only becomes active, when the camera is started. This way the camera would start faster (takes a while now because of the splashscreen) and you wouldnt need the extra shortcuts...

Big Probs again ;)

It only runs when the camera is active (When you use my shortcuts). Using a Service will use more battery power.

The Splashscreen can be disabled in a future version ;) What against my icons ;)

Nothing against your icons :D Happy that you designed some at all ;) I just like a clean/tydied up startmenu with less shortcuts as possible.

The PhotoCam is the only one i really need anyway and now has its place in my Sense-Quicklinks (everybody can delete/move the other shortcuts he doesnt need, so no problem with this one).

Thanks again, the Prog is working absolutely great. Ideal for self-portraits (which has always been a mess until now).

Absolutely fantastic! Works superbly!
If only i hadn't broken my camera glass today :(
Thanks again scilor!

P.S. is the "killme" file always necessary? it's a pain to download directly to the device when on EDGE (just nitpicking here :D)
Killme is just for those One-Click-Hosters, you can delete it. If you are on mobile you may download from my website (Please only download if needed, it costs traffic).

Your nice device :( Do not drop it!

Scilor, did you see my request??
This is truely awsome! I've beeen waiting for this!
It made my day!
Thanks!

Edit: Hmmm, cant seem to get it to work... Installed it to device. When I run the app it automatically stats the camcorder. I switch to camera and when I press the volume keys the volume adjustment window comes up. It doesnt help if I hold the volume keys.
What am I doing wrong?

First of all, you must close the camera app if it is running.
Then run it over one my icon(Not the normal one!). Then press the VolUp/VolDown keys. If you are able to change the volume, my program is currently incompatible with your version of the HTC Camera Application.

    The app has nothing to do with the drivers directly, but it just works on some versions
