[Freeware] FadeTop - a visual break reminder that fades the desktop

<< < (9/9)

An application with the same purpose I was once using had the following nice feature: the tray icon visually showed how much interval time had passed (or was left, can't remember). Can't remember the resolution either, maybe steps of 10 to 20% interval time (i.e. 5 to 10 different tray images).

Thank you for this info. I'm considering to add this feature.

But it occurs to me that you're asking for a feature that will allow you to continue the very behavior that the program is designed to break you of.

You got it.

Taking breaks away from the computer is all about habit. The program turns useless when we try to ignore the reminding.

[1] I can only test the fader (via the tray icon) once - it doesnt work after the first go -  this makes it difficult to test custom colours etc.

[2] My taskbar autohides - you say I can right click the tray icon and choose "Exit" from the shortcut menu to get out of  "fade" mode -
my taskbar menu does not show though while Time Clue is dimming the screen.-tomos (May 20, 2011, 04:57 PM)

this was sorted per PM, but just in case anyone else was wondering about them:
[1] is now fixed
[2] is actually only a problem when doing a test fade - click anywhere on the screen, move cursor to the bottom of screen - the taskbar gets shown

Tip: left-click tray icon to do a test fade

But the multi-monitor option is still being worked on (as it currently only fades my main monitor...)? :huh:

Another little bug -

if I change focus to Firefox during a fade (using alt+tab or clicking on minimised window on taskbar), the fade process will stop.

Changing focus to FF during a fade, also reintroduces the bug where you cannot do a test-fade afterwards.

XP SP3 / FF 4.0.1

edit/ added FF version
