    right click on segment field one. Then while the menu is still up. right click at the beggining of the name field.

    I don't get an error. It does, however, paste the contents of the clipboard to the segment TextBoxes (which is not intended).
    Overriding the default copy and paste mechanisms is a bit tricky. I'll dig into to that.

    While I could not reproduce the unhandled exception Solaris17 found, I did find a bug while attempting to reproduce the unhandled exception found by Solaris17.

    Assume that at this point, I have left my key segments at five, and have filled all five key segments, but have not yet clicked "Add Key."

    If I right-click the first key segment box, and then right-click the textbox for name, the key segments will revert to one and I will lose all of the keys and the boxes.

    That's because it is running the code to copy what is in the clipboard to the ky segments. If what is in the clipoard does not have any dashes in it, it will automatically paste the text into the fist box and reset the segment count to one. I will work on this.

    To explain simply.

    Make it were the game finds the keys for the games you already have installed on your computer automaticly and inserts and saves them using the program.

    I dont like looking for my booklets to keep track of keys

    but it would be nice if this program can find the keys using the game data that ive already installed in the program, so i dont have to manually insert them!

    That would mean someone would be able to take a USB stick and plug it into anyone's computer and pull all the keys the utility could find. Not a good idea.

    Forgot USB stick with latest source at home :/
    If I have time, I'll go get it on my lunch break.

    Version 1.0.6 available.
    Pasting into 1st key TextBox should work correctly with Ctrl-V, Shift-Ins and richt click context menu.

    +1 on all counts! I haven't downloaded it or read the whole thread, but automatically separating pasted keys into appropriate segments would be great.

    I've long kept my own keys in a document, on an encrypted drive, because I can't count on myself not to lose whatever they're printed on, and for the convenience of being able to copy + paste. It's always a pleasant surprise when I only have to copy and paste into the window for whatever I'm installing once, and a noteworthy annoyance when I have to do it once per segment.

    I'm a heavy keyboard user too, and intuitive movement through fields via "tab" makes a difference to me.

    You were right-clicking on the DataGridView column header.
    Why didn't you say so?? :laugh: I could not for the life of me get anything to fail until I accidentally click on the header and got the index out of range error.
    That is corrected and will be in next version.
    Thanks for not giving up on that Sol. :toast: You're on the list of beta testers for the other new utility I'm working on too.

    @TIGR : Everything that you quoted from Sol should be addressed already. Please try out the utility and let me know if something needs changing or improving upon.

    No problem, Panth, people should use whatever they like best. I just needed a new project to play with and thought some people may find it useful. :toast:

    Version 1.0.7 available.

    I think I'm just going to have to give this a try. Quite a useful little program from the looks of it. :)
