Tooltip Missing in v. 2016.00?

Post by tb75252 » Wed Dec 30, 2015 1:57 pm

I am using ViewMinder Pro v. 2016.00 on a Microsoft Windows 7 PC (64-bit).

With previous VieMinder versions (such as v. 11), I could hover over the ViewMinder icon in the system tray and the resulting tooltip would allow me to see things like today's day of the week, full date, today's holidays (if any).

The new ViewMinder 2016.00 icon in the system tray shows none of that... Have I missed a setting somewhere?

Hi tb75252, welcome to the forums. The system tray tooltip should still appear in the latest version. Please open the Program Options (via the Options menu) and make sure the box labeled "Show today's activities in task tray tooltip" is checked. If that doesn't fix it, try rebooting. Does that fix it?

Hi, Dan.
Yes, the "Show today's activities in task tray tooltip" and "Show full date" options are selected.
I have now installed VueMinder Pro 2016.00 on three PCs, all using Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit) and they all have the same problem.
I've even installed VueMinder Lite 2016.00 on a friend's PC (also running Window 7, 64-bit) and that one has the same problem.
I've rebooted all the PCs but the problem persists...
Am I really the only one having this problem? :-)

Hi tb75252, thanks for the information. I did the majority of my testing on Windows 10. It appears this bug slipped through on Windows 7. I'll work on fixing it in the next release.

Dan, the bug is also present on Windows 8.1 and on Vista. It also does not seem to display on a Vueminder restart either (i.e. the systray icon would always show the tooltip balloon when Vueminder started, it no longer does that).

I notice on Win 8.0 that the tooltip *tries* to display but fails. Steps:
Hover mouse over systray icon. After a few seconds, the taskbar flashes once every second. Watch for a few seconds to see how the flashing changes.
Guessing the tip appears but then goes away immediately.

Yes, I see that behaviour too.

This has been corrected for the next release. It should be available within the next day or two. I'll post a reply when it's ready.
