i've been looking at what would best demonstrate 'dialogmove' when recorded in a screencast - and now i'm wondering if i'm losing my mind.
i thought i'd turn dialogmove off and record how things are without it, which would then make a good comparison with a second recording with dialogmove enabled; a before and after type of thing. the problem is, i can only find one regular dialog window that gets moved by dialogmove - all the others i thought were being moved by the util are actually just moved by vista by default: things like save and open dialog windows.
there are occasions when vista doesn't move the dialog; which dialogmove must then be catching - otherwise i would have noticed this non moving behaviour sooner. when i say vista, i mean the programs i'm using really.
now that i've looked at what i'm doing it seems that there are very few dialog boxes in vista that are annoying enough to need regularly moving. so far i can only find the 'do you want to empy the recycle bin' dialog. vista just doesn't seem to throw up many small dialog boxes.
so, what i'm trying to say is, until i can find more dialogs that need moving i can't justify doing the screencast. i'm even doubting the use of dialogmove now. i can't understand it. there must have been lots more annoying little dialogs in xp - or maybe the save/open dialogs didn't behave as well as they do in vista. maybe it was just the programs i was using back then on xp.
i shall investigate and make a list of annoying dialog windows that popup in vista over the next few days.
