MonitorGrid (MonitorGrid.exe)

A multi-monitor aware replacement for Nuance’s Dragon utility "Mouse Grid"; released as public domain as a Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 C# project. The application creates a semi-transparent window the size of the specified monitor (the monitor arrangement is specified by the user the first time the application runs and by user’s choice of placement or resolution changes); a grid is drawn with a maximum of 26 columns (labeled with the ASCII letters A-Z) and 10 rows (labeled with the ASCII numerals 1-10). Each cell is labeled with the column letter and row number: A1-Z10.


The attached "MonitorGridReadme0.0.txt" goes into all the details. This is one of three companion applications: Screen Grid, Window Grid and Monitor Grid. Screen Grid creates a grid covering all of the monitors/displays attached to the computer. Window Grid opens a grid on the Active Window. Monitor Grid shows the grid only on the specified monitor.


Each application has its own separate preferences settings although those settings are very similar in all three applications. Grid settings are uniformly adaptable for number of rows and columns, grid line width and color, and both the font which is used to label the grid and a separate font which is used in the various dialogs. All three applications are completely language localizable by the user.

Certainly what you have developed is very impressive -- kudos to you. I thought that you might also be interested to know that I developed a monitor-independent way of simply creating mouse-positioning commands remotely that does not require number choosing/Show Numbers or Click By Voice or variations, or mouse grids, and is independent of monitor size, resolution, or scaling. If you send me an image of something that I am not likely to have, I can create commands to demonstrate proof of concept and sent these back to you. I will send you a private message with my contact info.
