New version of Skytus is available!

Hi ! I'm glad to introduce new version of Skytus :). Hope many of you already read/heard about it and some of you already tried to use it.

What did we do in current version (0.3.0.)? are you interested? Hope you are :). Here is short list of main things we did:

- loading/unloading skype's add-in manager (it does supporting of skype status in real time) much more correctly. We got couple
reports (special thanks to Tony Austin) about crashes of LN from time to time after installing Skytus. Hope there are no any issues in that area anymore.
- we've added new feature - synchronization. now users will be able to sync already created contacts in PAB with contacts in Skype, hope many of you will find it useful.
- very important thing we did also is Skytus SDK, that's is really awesome thing! from my point of view. We will add first version of sdk to download page later (hope next week) when finish msi installation for SDK. I will post about possibilities of SDK later in next post.
- speaking about SDK I have also admit that we migrated skytus product to it, so now it is done in more right way.

Now I'm thinking about next
- should we concentrate on new functionality of skytus and continue to improve it? we could probably do recording of voice or improve mail database with skytus' things?
- should we freeze new functionality of skytus for short period and do fixes only and see how it is going on? and in the same time start to do new integration with another AI/tools/product (yep, we
already have some ideas what to integration with LN).

What I would really want is to hear any ideas/comments/suggestions from you, that's would be really helpful for us.test link

New version of Skytus 0.2.0 is available for download !

The major changes are installation and unistallation. Now this is MSI installation (before it was NSF, and I have to say I do not liked it). Now it will be more native for user to install and uninstall Skytus. There are also some changes/updates for functionality.

So go on and try it :)

We made new version of Skytus 0.1.15. it is available for download now !

What do we have in new version?
- fixed issues we found in last build (0.1.14).
- added some more stability to LN when it does not have Skype installed on it.
- we made many tests with this add-on so it should be much more stable.

So if you still did not try our tools, do it now: Skytus !

We will be happy for any comments/suggestions!

How to check all content-type values?

I have some tasks where I have to open xml document in related application, so I had to know the content type values. I did not know that it could be checked in regedit :-)

so here is a way how we can look at it

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Mime \ Database \ Content Type \

f.x. for excel it will be like this

Print {Content-Type:application/}
Print {Cache-Control: public, must-revalidate}
Print {Expires: Sat, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT}
Print xml_output

Way to show FLV into you web pages

If you want to show SWF/FLV files onto you pages I would propose to use swfobject.js library. It's free and open. Here is a link to their site.

Here is an example of code how to do this

Let me do some comments for new people.

1) First of all I have to say that I used 1.5 version of swfobject instead of last one swfobject2.2. I'm planning to update it to 2.2 very soon. So please use 2.2 instead of 1.5, but anywhere approach is very similar.

- as you see DIV with ID FLV is used to be replaced with code that swfobject will generate to show SWF/FLV video.
- preview.swf is a player use want to use to show FLV video.
- your.flv is a FLV file you want to show.

Lotus Notes integration with Skype

Hi guys,

Let me introduce our new product Skytus - live integration Lotus Notes with Skype.

I would like to share it to our community :) and want to get feedback as much as possible as I'm one of developer. I'm interesting about each opinion!

We used C++ and Lotus Notes to make this product. Of course it is only beta and there are some issues there, we will fix it later.

Actually this is only demonstration of our possibilities and knowledge in Lotus Notes Integration area, so if you have any question regarding integration with Lotus Notes, you can contact us directly!

here is a site:
here is a download page:




UPDATE: We have decided to close the website due to very low interest to skytus.

How to do authentication in google analytics in LN

Here is an example how to do authentication in google analytics. This example was written not by me (author is Mikael Thuneberg), I just would like to share it here as well, because this example helped me a lot.

There are many example in web with VBA example to get data from Google Analytics (I work on that topic as well).

Public Function getGAauthenticationToken(email As String, password As String)

'Fetches GA authentication token, which can then be used to fetch data with the getGAdata function
'Created by Mikael Thuneberg

Dim objhttp As Variant
Dim authToken As Variant

Dim URL As String
Dim tempAns As String
Dim authResponse As String
Dim ch As String

Dim CurChr As Integer
Dim authTokenStart As Integer

If email = "" Then
getGAauthenticationToken = ""
Exit Function
End If

If password = "" Then
getGAauthenticationToken = "Input password"
Exit Function
End If

'hex password
CurChr = 1
Do Until ((CurChr - 1) = Len(password))
ch = Mid(password, CurChr, 1)
Select Case Asc(ch)
Case 48 To 57, 65 To 90, 97 To 122
tempAns = tempAns & Mid(password, CurChr, 1)
Case 32
tempAns = tempAns & "%" & Hex(32)
Case Else
tempAns = tempAns & "%" & Format(Hex(Asc(Mid(password, CurChr, 1))), "00")
End Select

CurChr = CurChr + 1
password = tempAns

On Error GoTo errhandler

' authentication
Set objhttp = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
URL = ""
objhttp.Open "POST", URL, False
objhttp.setRequestHeader "Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
objhttp.send ("accountType=GOOGLE&Email=" & email & "&Passwd=" & password & "&service=analytics&Source=tool-1.0")

authResponse = objhttp.responseText

If InStr(1, authResponse, "BadAuthentication") = 0 Then
authTokenStart = InStr(1, authResponse, "Auth=") + 4
authToken = Right(authResponse, Len(authResponse) - authTokenStart)
getGAauthenticationToken = authToken
getGAauthenticationToken = "Authentication failed"
End If

Exit Function
getGAauthenticationToken = "Authentication failed"
Resume basta
End Function

Here is another example, it gets real data from Google Analytics.

check if Bookmark or Name is exists in Word/Excel application

I did not have tasks with export data from LN to word/excel/pdf for 1 years probably. My today's task was easy, I had to export data from LN to xml, processed it using xsl, walk through resulting xml and export everything to word/excel. Then I had to copy values from resulting xml to word/excel's temlpate using bookmarks (in excel it is names).

Here is an example how to check bookrmark/names in word/excel (because before I did not have experience with Excel's names)

excel approach I got from this link

Function NameExists(TheName
as String, obj, formType as String) As Boolean

NameExists = False

Select Case formType
Case "word":
if obj.activedocument.Bookmarks.Exists(TheName) Then
NameExists = true
End If
Case "excel"
On Error Resume Next
NameExists = Len(obj.names(TheName).Name) <> 0
End Select

End Function
