yeah but how often are you going to ever want to change that value -- personally i dont know why everyone wouldnt stick to 1 yr view.
Wow.  Don't assume that however you use it is how other people want it.

I need only the current month 99% of time.  But my proposal would not eliminate setting a full year as your one click initial view.  Sorry if that was not clear.  

You could set whatever you want as your normal initial view just as now.  All I was proposing was being able to pop into either of the 1-yr views without having to go into options and basicall set a new standard view...switching would be right there in the calendar.

I also see nothing wrong with putting buttons in every calendar to do an instant switch to one of the other views.

1, 3, & 12 month views are available for the calendar via the Miscellaneous tab.

OK, just thinking out loud here...

One possible setup: click on text calendar shows current month (like now when set to one month).  It has two new buttons on it--one brings up a larger 1-year calendar with January of current year in upper left; other button brings up 1-year calendar with current month in upper left.  The 1-yr view also should have the button to change to whichever view (Jan start or current mo. start) is not showing.

This would be way fewer steps than having to go into properties, change tab, change option, exit, open calendar...many steps.

Was the problem of not closing on lose focus ever solved?

It would be nice if you could have a option to display that one instead of the T-Clock one.
yeah actually it would be nice if we had some options for calendar, like to display t-clock one, windows one, or a custom exe.

I don't understand.  If you want to display the Windows clock, why do you install this?

I said to close by clicking the clock (that's also how I open it), not clicking the calendar.
Also, the lose focus does work. It's that the calendar sometimes doesn't have the focus to begin with.

Indeed you did.  Sorry.

The "Close Calendar on Lose Focus" doesn't always work, as the calendar sometimes is already out of focus when opened.
Is it possible to close it by clicking the clock, as that's already how I open it. Hitting the large clock positioned at the screen's edge is easier than the "X" button with a touchpad =).  Or just fix the focus thing, although I sometimes want it to stay open while I focus other windows...

It won't work to close by click-in-calendar because sometimes you have to click the "next-month" button.  Solution is to find why lose focus is not working.

That is overreacting imo.
There is no "general thinking here" here on this subject as well as many subjects.
I said "...out of sync with SOME of the general thinking here."

"That is overreacting imo."
Clearly, you have no problem with someone, without your permission, installing software on your machine, or sending off data about you or your machine--as does OpenCandy.

I do have a problem with that--a BIG problem with that.

You are OpenCandy's dream come true.

I guess I'll just bid adieu.  It is clear I am very out of sync with some of the general thinking here...in that I cannot see how anyone would conclude that this "method" has any coat of acceptability whatsoever.

I say that because, to me, if anything is being done (installed or info sent to wherever) before the user has a chance to prevent it, that unquestionably (in my opinion) constitutes unacceptable behavior.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What the hell is OpenCandy? on: April 10, 2011, 02:53:50 PM
All those words, and no answer to the questions I posed.  Only three words required... pick one (truthful answer) from each line (they align with my 3 questions):
1. yes no
2. yes no
3. yes no
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What the hell is OpenCandy? on: April 10, 2011, 02:28:26 PM
Does it install ANYTHING (part of itself or whatever it is "offering" or anything else) without user choice to deny?

Does it send ANY info "home to mama" [I add now "or ANYWHERE"] without a user choice to deny same.

Is user option to NOT do either of the above presented clearly and obviously BEFORE it is done?

What are the answers to these questions?  And they are yes or no questions.  They are simple and direct.  And the answers immediately solve the riddle of whether OpenCandy is acceptable or not.  I get the feeling no one wants to answer them truthfully.
11  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: April 09, 2011, 06:49:28 PM
but there is no doubt in my mind that it is due to the option being ON in T-Clock.
I'm inclined to agree at this point. Can you think of anything that may be unique about your config? Any security or system management software that it may be interacting badly with?

Unfortunately, I run a very secure machine AND have lots of productivity tools on it.  For TSRs, there are

WinPatrol
MSE
Superantispyware Pro
Comodo FW
Carbonite
Dropbox
PhraseExpress
Bitmeter
Stickpad
Windows Sidebar
Yahoo gadgets
Camera Assistant sfw (came with laptop)
xneat Windows manager
Desktop media (puts shortcut on desktop for any connected drive)
Maxtor Status Icon (a connectivity app to get to a NAS)
Free Download Manager (not usually running but just notices it WAS set to load on startup; a recent update must have turned that back on)

There may be some others that don't have an icon in system tray.

This is not a huge issue for me; I just set 'monitor off' to 10 minutes in power options, and tha is OK.

Sir, regarding the previous posts about the "Locking workstation turns off monitor" strangeness I discussed...

since then, as stated, I had that checked OFF, not turned on.  Have had no issues.

This morning I turned it back on.  My FIRST attempt to go into lock, it did lock, but instantly, the blink monitor on and off began.  I was able to log back in (the on/off of monitor seemed to have no effect on typing the password in).  The blinking continued after back into logged in mode.  I did a reboot, and once in, unchecked the option.

This may be something that is happening only in MY particular configuration, but there is no doubt in my mind that it is due to the option being ON in T-Clock.

This is ever so simple...

Does it send ANY info "home to mama" without a user choice to deny same.

If the answers to those are other than NO, NO, YES, then OpenCandy is undeniably evil.

LATER- can the font in the balloon be changed?  I need it bigger/darker.

Currently no, but I'll think about it (my to-do list is getting a bit out of hand... smiley).

Dang those users; always wanting more and more! smiley

Already does that, bottom of mouse tab. Wink

Then ???.  
So. the current discussion is about ADDITIONAL variables that can be put in there?

Guess I'll have to go look at what can be put there now.

... I was thinking that the computer name & uptime combo might make a good default option for the tooltip popup that shows when you hover the mouse over the clock.

Or in options, have a place where user can select what he want to show on hover?
17  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: April 02, 2011, 07:38:14 PM
...I was/am shooting for either an incident (of black-out) where T-Clock's feature isn't enabled. Or a longer term episode like the one you mentioned having to shutdown to get out of.
I have had no incidents occur when Tcolock was not enabled.

The time I had to do the shutdown was when it was in one of the off-on blink manifestations.  The ones where it completely went to black and stayed there, I was able to get back in a normal way...though I do not remember now whether a log in was required for those.  Those happened first; the last 2 or 3 were the blinking kind.
18  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: April 02, 2011, 12:09:38 PM
Just for education, when "monitor off" is commanded (by either Tclock's call or something else) are you saying it is just backlight being turned off and the screen data is really still there?

Your no. 1 will be hard to do as it is only off for a moment and actually there seems to be a "fade-to-black" transition going on, although very fast, as it goes into black.  But it comes back almost instantly, so seeing what is faintly still there during the off time, if anything, will be iffy.
19  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: April 01, 2011, 07:29:23 PM
It is on a Vista Home Premium laptop, so no monitor light to see.

The 500ms in the code is interesting...the cycle time I saw could have been 1/2 sec for either on or off instead of 1-1/2 total as I said.  I didn't measure it--just estimating.  On and off time 'seemed' about equal, but that is not measured.

If you don't hear about it from anyone else, it may not be Tclock, or it may be some odd interaction with something on my machine and not others.

I will do as you request-- try in a week (assuming I remember to turn it back on in a week!).  However, I don't think it started right when I set the option (I don't think...but frankly, I don't remember when I set that).  Big help I am.

So, we shall experiment.

I don't read code much and certainly not C++; where is that WTS_SESSION_LOCK message (bit?) set, and what clears it? Could it still be true when unlock happens?  But never mind--I was not consciously doing anything to cause the unlock (certainly not entering the password--it was not asked-for).  That a clue?  Wait! It actually was not locking, because it came back to logged-in screen, not to login password screen as would be normal if it really had locked.  It was only screen off on, not lock-unlock.
20  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: April 01, 2011, 11:32:47 AM
Sir, an uncertain observation...

I turned the option ON for 'monitor off on screen lock.'  That worked--screen did go off when locked.  But I had a strange phenomenon occur about 5 times over four days...

I'd be working along and the screen would go dark then come back on on a mouse move.  Two of the times, it went into an off-on-off-on-off-on blink mode.  The period was about 1.5 sec from off to off or on to on.

I have a widget for oneclick shutdown and was able during the ON blinks to eventually move the cursor over that and click a shutdown.

I do not know for sure that Tclock was causing this, but I strongly suspect it. Since turning the option back off yesterday, I have not had the situation reappear.
21  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: March 17, 2011, 10:41:09 AM
Oooooooo....that my computer worked that fast!

But there is a difference that is noticeable.  Still, your T-Clock opening is just 1/4 smidgen longer than mine, on a 3-yr old, 2.2 GHz core2duo Vista, bogged with TONS of programs and a history of tons of uninstalled programs.
22  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: March 16, 2011, 06:35:09 PM
Don't forget the calendar window close on lose focus issue...not as sexy as the timer thing, I know.
23  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: March 14, 2011, 12:04:09 PM
Hm... Okay [SJ Fiddles with calendar for 10min] that's interesting. Actually it isn't failing to close on loose focus, it isn't actually gaining focus it to start with. Even if you click on the caption bar (to give it focus) it doesn't go/show as active (red exit button etc.). You actually have to click back and forth between calendar and desktop (or other app) to get the thing to go/show as active (red exit button etc.).  Damn peculiar behavior I must say.
Mine, thru all periods of behaving or misbehaving, retains the "active window" color in its top bar.  I do not know whether it "thinks" it is active or background, but it always displays the active window color even when behind the real active window.
24  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: March 14, 2011, 08:07:17 AM
Dang, typed one and it is not here...must not have hit save.

Set to show 1-mo calendar on left click and keep it on top and close on lose focus
open cal
click in open app
cal closes (correct)
open cal
click in open app
app gains focus, cal stays open behind (oops)
close cal with x corner
open cal
click in open app
cal closes (correct)

It just alternates between closing right and just losing focus.

Nice!

Thanks much for the A, P, a, p !  I have it on mine right now!
m/dd, h:nntt

Here is a real non critical one that just hit me...think about being able to open the help file from either the rt click menu or from inside properties (a Help tab or a link inside About?)  or it could be a link to the file as a page on your site.
