Reminder alert

5 posts in this topic

This program will alert you to previously scheduled tasks. It starts hidden but you can show it by using the tray icon it has... I did that because that way you can put in your startup without it popping up every time you log on.

I have one question: How could I make it (on the alert window that pops up) so that the label is transparent, I've tried the transparent thing but it doesn't seem to be working...

Please let me know what you think! :whistle:

What about adding repeat events, pick your own wav per reminder, create a reminder -you may want to add notes with a type of header(reminder name)

just my 2 cents

but after opening reminder - the exit button will exit the application and the X top right will hide the application (design?)

I am not keen of the lag for the transparent windows - I do like it though, maybe make it faster or since you might have to write an INI for my 2 cents above you may want to let the user decide time and/or no tranparent windows.

I really like the GUI

Thanks for your advice! I hadn't thought about repeating event but it sounds like a good idea, so I'll look into that when I'm done with my homework... :whistle: I also like you idea of having selected sounds, that should be pretty easy. I'm not sure what you mean by the last one... I already have a "Add an reminder", how would that be different from "Create a reminder"?

Do you think that the exit idea is good? That's kind of how msn messenger does it. I think I'll might just take out the exit button on the form though, and then it would be completely like msn messenger in that you can exit from the trayitem.

I also like you idea about having an option for the fade, I'll make an options menu or something.

Once again thanks for you comments/suggestions!

I mean you may want a header and some notes for each reminder - you may not want to display the notes on the main gui, but when the popup reminder came up - you could see the exact notes - again just my 2 cents

Maybe just have the top exit button EXIT the application (maybe a reminder saying "Are you sure?", as your reminder will no longer remind) and then have the button called exit equal HIDE instead.

Thought of another idea - you may want to edit your entry, rather than delete and start over with another reminder when all you wanted to do was change the title - again my 2 cents

Ok, I like that idea... I think those additions would be pretty easy and would also make the program more user friendly. I'll post an updated version once I get those additions on... Thanks again!
