TsGui update 0.9.7.1 – pre-flight checks and image support

Hi all,

I’ve just uploaded a new version of TsGui to the site. This version has a number of updates, most noticeably support for compliance options a.k.a. pre-flight checks, and expanded customisation options e.g. image support, ability to modify the header area like a page (you can add rows/columns/guioptions).

      
Base config vs example customized config:

TsGui update 0.9.6.7

Hi all,

There is a new version of TsGui on the Download page. This version fixes the issue where the TsGui window doesn’t open center screen like it is supposed to in WinPE.

In the process of fixing that issue, I also developed a ‘Live Data’ window that is useful for testing. This displays all GuiOptions and NoUIOptions and their current values. It also displays some basic info like screen resolution and window location. You can enable this using the LiveData attribute for use in testing mode, or using the Debug attribute if you also want it to display during a running task sequence. See the Config_Examples.xml for details.

Cheers,

Mike

TsGui update – 0.9.6.6

Hi all,

I’ve just uploaded a new version of TsGui to the site. The main feature for this version is a new “NoUI” section. This lets you create TS variables without anything displayed in the GUI. They are also group aware, so you can create multiple TS variables based on the selection from a single drop down list or check box.

See Config_NoUI.xml for an example configuration, and check the how-to video for more details. See the release notes for additional updates and fixes in this release.

Cheers,

Mike.

TsGui bug fix update

Hi all,

I’ve just posted version 0.9.6.3 to the site. This fixes inheritance on the <PurgeInactive> option, which wasn’t flowing down the tree, e.g. from <Page>, <Row>, <Column>.

This update also adds the ability to set the position of the TsGui window on the screen. See the <WindowLocation> option in Config_Formatting.xml.

0.9.6.3 is available as usual on the Download page, and source is available on GitHub.

Cheers,

Mike

TsGui update 0.9.6.2

Hi all,

I found a bug today while doing a build. In a FreeText/ComputerName option, the process that removes invalid characters from the result of a query wasn’t working properly. It’s a relatively minor issue, but annoys me so I’ve published a fix. Version 0.9.6.2 is now published on the download page.

Cheers,

Mike

TsGui update 0.9.6.1

Hi all,

I have posted a minor update to TsGui. This update adds the ability to truncate values returned from queries. This was a feature request from a TsGui user, and gives you more control of the format of data that comes back from queries.

*Please read the release notes as there is a change to how the <Append>, <Prefix>, and <Calculate> options are processed. They are now processed from top to bottom, rather than calculations being done first.

There is also a fix so that Parallels VMs getting detected properly during hardware eval.

Download the new version here.

Cheers,

Mike.
