I searched through this topic, but couldn't find what I needed. I have a 3 monitor setup, and would like these to appear on the right side, of the middle monitor? anyway to make that happen?

Thanks

You did not look hard enough! Use the $iForceMonitor parameter in the _Notify_Locate function to set the monitor on which the Notifications appear.

Great! I do not have a multi-monitor setup so I am delighted to hear that the parameter actually works!

Melba, Notify is an absolute excellent UDF.  I use it all the time.  There are times when it crashes for some reason.  I have taken a screen shot of the error message.  When it crashes it causes my main program to stop functioning.  Is there a way to have exit peacefully and not effect the my main script?

Thanks in advance,

Jim

Wizardry,

I am delighted you like the UDF and that is useful to you. The error is caused by there being a discrepancy between the number of notifications actually displayed and those listed in the internal array of notifications. This usually occurs when 2 or more notifications are retracted in close succession and the internal array does not have time to update between events. I have tried many times in the past to improve the UDF logic to prevent this occurring but, as you have discovered, I have never been able to completely prevent this race condition.

I will take another look at the code, but I fear that there is little more I can do. I might be able to prevent a critical error breaking the whole script, but off the top of my head this would probably be at the cost of a notification remaining permanently displayed.

Wizardry,

Sorry it has taken so long to get around to looking at this. Please try this new version and see if it cures the problem for you:

Melba,

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to modify the code.  I will test it out and get back to you.  Again, a great UDF which is extremely useful.

Melba,

I have thoroughly test the modified code you so kindly provided to me.  It has been a dream, not one error or crash in over a month.  Again I appreciate you taking the time to help me.  Great code and and even greater author of the code.

 

Many thanks,

Jim

[NEW VERSION] - 26 Oct 21

Changed: Retracting multiple notifications in close succession could lead to a fatal "array subscript out of bounds" error - added a check to prevent this.

New UDF in the first post.

If the height is changed - "you can change it"

Local $iNotify_Height = 40

When calculating the shift $iNotify_Y, the height $iNotify_Height is not taken into account and everything overlaps.

Can the text size be adjusted here?

No, at the moment it is fixed at 9pt.

I think you are probably the first person to try and change the notification size - so it does not surprise me that it is not as easy as just changing the one variable.

I will be looking into both of those reports over the weekend - unless my better half comes up with something more urgent for me to do!

mike2003,

Please try this Beta version of the UDF - there is a new function _Notify_Size which allows you to alter the height and min/max widths of the notifications: Notify_Test.au3

The font and icon/image size is automatically adjusted within the UDF to match the chosen notification height. This automatic adjustment is deliberate - notifications are meant for short messages and so, as in previous requests for more text space, I am not prepared to allow more than the current 1/2 lines.

Note that you need to run _Notify_Size BEFORE _Notify_Locate, if you are going to call the latter function.

Let me know what you think - and comments from others welcome too, as always.

It does not work for me. "_Notify_Size BEFORE _Notify_Locate"

Everything remains the same.

And the first element disappeared!

#include "Notify_Test.au3"
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

_Notify_Size(200, 360, 400)
;~ _Notify_Size($iHeight = 40, $iMinWidth = 160, $iMaxWidth = 320)

; Set notification location
_Notify_Locate(0, 2)
; Set Show time to 250 ms - note fast entry
_Notify_Set(1, 0xAA0000, Default, "", True, 350)
Global $aNotCID[5]
$aNotCID[0] = _Notify_Show(0, "Title 1 asdf", "Message 1 asdf asd fasd dfg hdg dfghd gdgfdh dfgh dfg hdf")
