I just installed Weather Watcher v5.6.19
(although I noticed this before in v5.6.18)
When WW is open (with a stub in the Taskbar) but another item in the Taskbar has focus
(i.e. its window is in front of WW) … triggering the Tray Tooltip via hovering over the icon
in the System Tray will bring the out-of-focus WW into focus.
While I can see how some people may like this, I would prefer the focus of WW be unaffected
by the triggering of the Tray Tooltip. Might this change in focus be suppressed, or an option
added to prevent focus from being stolen from other applications?
Really!! I don’t have the problem with my system; XP, SP2, WW 5.6.19, IE 6.
I did experience the problem with WW when I had IE 7 installed and it was one of the reasons I restored back to IE6. But I have never experienced it with IE 6 and any version of WW including 5.6.19. I wonder what makes your system so unique. Are you running any display sw like WindowBlinds?
At the time, the only reference to 19a that I was aware of was the posting of the skin problem due to DPIs. I now have seen the Home page notice of it’s other fixes, I have tried it, and it does seem to resolve the flashing Options window problem when shutting down. Thanks. :icon_smile:
To be perfectly honest it’s rare that I keep the WW Forecasts window open. I click the Tray icon to view it then close it. Most immediate information I get from the Tooltip. Keeping it open uses up Taskbar space which I rather keep for tasks I’m more active with.
None the less … in the instances when I do have both open … I don’t think it ideal that the Tooltip triggers a change in focus. And thus I think it’d be good if this behavior was disabled, or an option added to give the user the capability of stopping it.
