A couple things about 3.1.4.1

I'm on the hunt for bugs...and I found one, which the changelog said was fixed.

Fixed: Taskbar thumbnail preview tooltip now longer covers the first taskbar items when the taskbar is vertical


Well, for one, you meant to put "no", not "now", and it doesn't do that. :P



As you can plainly tell from the above image... :wink:

...For the suggestion for the future release:

Upon mouseover-ing (is that a word?) on iTunes, it will show buttons below the preview, like so:

The onclick events for the buttons would be simple, because Apple made a dll that you can control iTunes with. If I'm right, it's iTunesAdmin.dll or something like that. Besides that and actually placing the buttons there, the rest is jello.

This thread is subject to massive self-bumping.

I can't seem to reproduce that tooltip error on my machine in Windows 7. Does that happen with all windows when they are the first item? As for the iTunes controls, while I think it is a cool idea, I don't have any plans to add 3rd party specific enhancements yet. :)

Yes, it does this with anything. I've tried with a couple different programs made by different companies, as well as programs I've made. Also, that's all right. :mrgreen:

Hmm, looking closely at the first picture I posted, the button that is being hovered by the mouse is a completely filled rectangle. To look more like Windows 7, some APIs must be used to cut the corners a bit.

Well, I use Visual Basic 6, I know, I live in the past, but it's quick to make good working programs. If memory serves, it's much like .NET.

With the use of SetWindowRgn, and CreateRoundRectRgn API functions, this can be done, and here is an example of what it'd look like if it was in vb6...(I hope this helps haha)

Code

Private Declare Function SetWindowRgn Lib "user32" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal hRgn As Long, ByVal bRedraw As Boolean) As Long
Private Declare Function CreateRoundRectRgn Lib "gdi32" (ByVal X1 As Long, ByVal Y1 As Long, ByVal X2 As Long, ByVal Y2 As Long, ByVal X3 As Long, ByVal Y3 As Long) As Long
SetWindowRgn Button.hWnd, CreateRoundRectRgn(0, 0, BUTTON.WIDTH.IN.PIXELS, BUTTON.HEIGHT.IN.PIXELS, 2, 2), True


I hope it helps to put the functions themselves, but it's worth a shot. The "2, 2" means to cut just the corners by one pixel. Messing with those numbers could yield some good outcomes.

I've updated to 3.1.4.2 now, so this thread will now be related to that. ;D

Haha, the first tooltip now shows up underneath the preview. Yay. :lol:

Oh yeah, the window snapping issue, doesn't work at all, doesn't snap to the top, bottom, left, right, taskbar, anything. Even using it at a fairly large yet reasonable range, it doesn't snap! :|

...Is it just me (which has been proven to happen before...:roll:) or did the titlebar buttons stop working? I haven't noticed until now, even after resetting the program as well as turning the setting off and back on between the resets.

Found another weird bug, I found this some time ago but thought nothing of it.



If you have something like MSN open on a non-primary screen, then open up DF, it will distort the icon like above. It seems to only happen to the first minimized-to-taskbar MSN window, not counting the tray, so it can do it to that one shown above, or the last one in the picture.

No big deal really, but I thought I'd show someone. Moving the window to another screen and bringing it back fixes it for me.

Hmm, this one might be unfixable, never thought of it before. I have a program that was running through a very large loop, eating up CPU, it started out on my secondary screen, i managed to move it to my primary screen, and it remained on the DF taskbar until the unreasonably large loop was finished.

Do you have both hooks enabled on the Troubleshooting tab? That would explain why the snapping doesn't work. As for the program that is using a lot of CPU, if DisplayFusion can't talk to a window because it's hung, it won't remove it from the taskbar because it doesn't know what monitor it's actually on. There's not much I can do about that problem, unfortunately.

Yes, both hooks are enabled, and what should I do about the titlebar buttons? :|

When you say the titlebar buttons stop working, do they disappear, or do the buttons just not do anything when clicked?

They just don't appear at all. Clicking the positions where they would be does nothing.

Can you post the info from the Troubleshooting tab?
