Topic: force JBidwatcher to re-import auctions.xml

This won’t help you but I vote for your request to get a menu item to import csv files. Not exclusively for the current tab but for all the tabs, standard and added ones.

Hi Morgan,

I’m very pleased to see that you are still working this great piece of software, and have released a new version

Your efforts are much appreciated

Hi Horgan, great to see the update and just won my first snipe on the beta, so it works!
I have been bimbling along with 2.5.6 which, although a bit clunky, has never let me down.
Many thanks,
Roger W.

Thanks! I’m excited too, although this release is…not going very well. sigh

Definitely; fixing the Add dialog’s size on Windows is on my list of must-fix-before-3.0 bugs. It should be straightforward.

Shipping is a tough one; eBay has gotten more and more serious about shipping being a very custom field, figuring it out on the fly, which makes it harder to extract. I can understand the desire to see it as a default field, but I don’t want to make the defaults too cluttered. I’ll poke at it and see what I can do.

p.s. I miss multi-snipe too, but a few folks ended up buying multiple items, and that put the kibosh on that pretty fast. If I can’t feel confident that it’ll ‘do no harm’ for thousands of people under weird eBay conditions, I have a hard time including it.

I noticed one small issue just now: the “shipping” column is not shown by default.

It is still available under Tab -> Custom Columns, but since “set shipping” is still available in the right-click menu, and the “subtract shipping” option is still available when sniping, I think the shipping column should be enabled by default (even though I see that JBidWatcher still doesn’t manage to scrape the shipping cost from the web page).

Also, I still miss multi-snipe!

I am excited, Morgan, that you’ve pre-released a new version of JBidWatcher!

One tiny nit that you might want to fix is the size of the “Adding” dialog box which prompts for an auction number. It needs to be a bit taller. Here’s a screenshot:

That’s under Windows 7 with the default (“100%”) display “DPI” text setting, and Java 8 Update 66.

(BTW, JBidWatcher is the only reason I have Java installed on my computers.)

Gratefully yours,
