Open Main Calendar Window with Single Click

Postby VMUser » Sat Oct 27, 2012 3:30 am

At the moment if I want to open the main calendar window I need a double click on the tray icon.

But I would prefer to open the main calendar window by a single left click. There's no usage for the single left click yet.

Version 10.0 Beta 11 is now available. This version will only require a single click on the task tray icon to open the main window. The beta is available here:

Thanks again for the suggestion and please let me know if you think of anything else you'd like added or changed.

I would like to add a 2nd suggestion here:

To close the main window with a single click on the task tray icon. Right now it opens with a single click but to close it I need to click somewhere else.

Hi VMUser, thanks for the suggestion. I implemented this change, but found when testing that it won't work very well. The problem is that some people are used to double-clicking the icon, since that's the standard for opening most windows from the task tray. After making the change, a double-click will make the main window appear for a split second and then disappear again because of the second click.

I apologize for the inconvenience, but I can't make this change. I think it would cause confusion with people that are used to double-clicking the icon.

Hi Dan,

I understand your concern. I have some apps here on my computer which work that way. Some of those applications have selectable options how the single click should work. Would it be possible to implement it as a selectable option in VueMinder?

Thanks

Yes, I could make this an option. I've added this to my to-do list and will post a reply when it's finished. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions.
