    Default JPF Utility program

    Hey there!

    I've just started writing a small little program which I thought could have potential to help out some of the contributors here at Java Programming Forums, but before I went any further
    I thought I'd consolidate with the people It could potentially help for your ideas and opinions.

    The program is essentially a shortcut program, which stores some pre-defined text ready to be placed onto a users clipboard.

    Here is how the GUI currently looks:



    How it works:
    The program uses a Java interface to simply copy and set to a users clipboard.
    The idea is that, when a user clicks on SSCCE, it will copy a commonly used paragraph / sentence onto a user's clipboard rather than have a user retype it for each occasion.

    The same is also true for each of the buttons par 'Crosspost', as it works slightly differently. To properly use 'Crosspost', what you would do it copy the URL in which the post has been cross posted manually, then click on the 'Crosspost' button to automatically wrap it in code tags.
    Of course cross-post tags are easy and small to type up, but for someone who would use this interface for the other functionalities, I thought it couldn't harm to have it in there.


    Notes:
    None of the currently pre-built text are final, and some haven't been implemented as I want your take on what they should contain and what you would find useful.
    If people believe this could be a useful tool for them, I would also implement a GUI for you to write your own custom text, as the Persistence functionality is already implemented.


    If people could leave their thoughts on this idea, with some suggestions and comments, I would like to hear them before I go any further.
    If you could also suggest some default text it should include for things such as spoon-feeding etc. I would be grateful.

    Thanks

    Hey newbie,

    Looks pretty cool. I like the idea
    It is very annoying having to constantly type up the same replies when moderating the forum.
    I was hoping to create some kind of forum plugin which would support some canned phrases.

    Let us know when it's complete and I will give it a go. I may give it some more exposure if it proves to be useful.

    That seems like it could have potential. It would be even better if we could add custom cases and our own text. Feature creep...

    As there is interest, I'll get it going with Kevin's suggested features too, though It will need to wait for a while, tedious AI assignments to finish first
    Thanks for the feedback
