Clear one contact history in Skype PDF Print E-mail
The Python/Pywin32 Script collection - Other

This simple script enables you to delete one contact history from your Skype local database.

Let's say your contact display name in Skype is 'Roger G'.

I'm using vacuum statement to compact database, I believe it's more secure that way.

import sqlite3
conn = sqlite3.connect('C:\\Users\\your_user_name\\AppData\\Roaming\\Skype\\skype_account_name\\main.db')
c = conn.cursor()
c.execute("SELECT DISTINCT convo_id FROM Messages WHERE from_dispname = 'Roger G';")
result = c.fetchone()
if result is not None:
    convo_id = int(result[0])
    c.execute("DELETE FROM Messages where convo_id = {}".format(convo_id))
    deleted = int(conn.total_changes)
    print("Deleted: {}".format(deleted))

Simple VBA like MessageBox in Python PDF Print E-mail
Newsflash - Newsflash


Some days ago I found a very easy pythonic way to show a VBA-like MessageBox. It was created with only one line of cpython code.

The code is very very easy. Simply change the last integer parameter to change the style of the message box.

import ctypes
msgbox = ctypes.windll.user32.MessageBoxA
ret = msgbox(None, 'Press OK to end the demo.', 'Deviare Python Demo', 0)
print ret
