Re: [NTB] NoteTabPro pops up when it is not suposed to
- Hi Jason,
Welcome once again - enjoy reading your posts even though we
disagree at times. ;) I really don't liking posting back on this
thread, but it may help some on the way I think of why some posts
should go to a different list.
I believe it is an OffTopic or maybe even NextRelease list
Subject:. The reason for me saying that is because it is OS or
machine associated. There does not seem to be a Windows standard
for System Tray behavior or possibly, as mentioned, the Windows
Explorer single click for files may have an effect. I do notice
that a single click works for me in NoteTab as designed and at
least my DUN icon in the Tray pops up with a single click. (I do
have my Windows Explorer set to single click and the classic
Explorer.) In other words, it is not just a basic question and
requires a bit of discussion - more than just a simple reply.
Another thought that came to mind is the applications that when
you click on the tray icon it the program will come in focus, but
it also places a button on the Taskbar. If you are wanting a
different behavior then you need to post that to the ntb-
NextRelease list or send your request to:
The way I read Scott's post it is when he clicks on a desktop
icon that NoteTab pops up, but I cannot figure out if NoteTab
pops into focus or if the icon disappears from the System Tray.
If the latter, my guess is a low resource condition in Win98 or
simply a Windows bug. If the first mentioned above, I cannot
reproduce the behavior in Win98SE or XP Prom nor have I ever
heard of it happening ever since we got the option to put NoteTab
in the System Tray.

behavior), but I have tried to implement a different method for activating
the program window in the upcoming maintenance release. Would you be
willing to test the current prerelease version to see if it fixes this
problem? The Setup file is available from this URL (size 1,724 MB):
Note that you will need a registered version of NoteTab Pro in order to
install this pre-release version.
