I may have spoke too soon. I think a "typo" allowed my example to work. I'll keep looking at it.

I am starting to think that there is a new and very useful application for your lib.
I am working on some code at the moment that seems to behave differently if you pause to debug (msgboxes, debugger stepping etc).

What would be nice to have would be something like your lib, but with the following enhancements:

You can set it so one window holds all notifications.
When a notification comes in, it appears in the notification window, and there is some way to scroll through the messages, dismiss them etc (ListView to select message, close buttons etc).

That's basically it.
Thoughts?
I know how to do everything required, so it's certainly possible.

Yeah there are ways to have windows for the error log and such, but I think this idea could have it's own merits.

Thoughts?

@huyaowen
1. for me its working fine without sleep
2. you can! change line 'gui, color, bla bla ' to your preferred color

@evilC
sounds really interesting!
what about sliding the msg or dragout from notification window to erase the message?
notification window you mean is taskbar?

I suppose it could have it's own taskbar icon, but that isn't really that important I don't think.
Just as it is now, but allow all messages to appear in the same popup, and you can scroll through them somehow by clicking something in the popup.

So basically the popup window has two elements:
The notification list (A Listview) which lists all the notifications that have fired.
A notification area that displays the message.

When you select a notification from the listview, it appears in the notification area, along a button to cancel that notification.

FYI - To me, it would be much more useful with color parameters -- both background and foreground colors (separate title and main message colors).

I would use this instead of Notify() if it could:
1. Expand height to amount of text
2. Have font size presets in function
3. You can click it away

Great job though, looks really good.

If you are using my class based version, adding such a feature would probably be pretty easy, and optional, so it would not needlessly complicate basic usage.

I would allow the user to not specify time at creation, thus allowing the user to modify the notify before it gets activated.

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

;new PleasantNotify("PleasantNotify", "position t hc" , 600, 210, "t hc", 3)

n := new PleasantNotify("PleasantNotify", "position t hc" , , , "t hc", 3)
n.TextColor := "#FF0000"
n.background := "#000000"
n.time := [600,210]
n.activate()


What may be a lot easier would be to add an extra "options" field that accepts an object, or can be left blank for default.

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

new PleasantNotify("PleasantNotify", "position t hc" , , , "t hc", 3, {TextColor := "#FF0000", background := "#000000"})

Hell, I would get rid of the position fields and just set them with an object. If a func has lots of params, it is often easier to use an object, that way people only need to remember words, not the order. It also makes it easier for new people to understand what each param does.
eg:

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

new PleasantNotify({title: "PleasantNotify", pos: "t hc" , after: 600 , duration: 200 ,text: "t hc", something: 3, TextColor := "#FF0000", background := "#000000"})

Hi Soft Nice Work! :clap:

Nice Splash, I was looking for something like that at the start of one of my application.
It would be nice if we could insert images, pictures, or logos in the message and have a way to position them.
Or would that mean a complete make over?

Thanks.

Hi sir,

How would you display an actual timer for the 3 second duration on your beautiful splash notifier?

And also how can you add an image to it ?(background)

[AHK knowledge limited, just want to add a timer and a background to it for the duration the splash is being displayed]

Thank you in advance.
