Messenger Popup Plugin Version 0.5

Post by jskinner » Tue Mar 15, 2005 4:01 am

Messenger Popup Plugin Version 0.5 is now ready for download from http://james.istop.com/PopTray/MessengerPopup/

This version adds a new skin plus fixes various bugs including adding a partial workaround for the PopTray Plugin API multiple notification bug.

Cheers, -James

PS This version still has the 'Divide by Zero' bug to the best of my knowledge.

I'd like to find this bug but I can't reproduce it on a regualar basis. Has anyone noticed any pattern when it happens or can reproduce it on demand?

If yes, please email me at james@istop.com

thanks, -James

Thats fine and another wish:

E mail Account and/or sender should be shown in the message text.

I ve seen this feature at TOBIT software, where every new mail takes one message window.
If two or more mails arrive the windows appear in a cascade one above the other.

I'm having a real hard time tracking down the cause of this 'Divide by Zero' bug. I have uploaded a new version of the code that trys to catch the error and dispaly a more informative message. Give the new code a try and if the error happens please look in the PopTray directory and email me or post the file MessengerPopupError.log if it exists.

Thanks, -James

This is pretty cool. I just came to this forum seeing if there is an MSN style notification plugin because I was thinking of developing one if it didn't exist and here you have already created one.

I'm about to give it your plugin a try but from your website it seems you've done a great job. Do you have any plans to release the source code? Or perhaps consider taking on another developer or sharing the code with me to see if I can contribute in any way? I've been looking at this code project submission (http://www.codeproject.com/dialog/taskbarnotifier.asp) for inspiration but I was thinking of making one that looks more like the pop-up window from the GMail notifier program. Of course with skining that should be pretty easy.

Anyway thanks for making the plug-in.

I infact used the code you mentioned as my starting point. Yes I would be willing to opensource or work with another developer. Email me if you want to talk more about it
