Hoping to add custom icon sizes soon
« on: March 11, 2017, 02:45 AM »
Just a heads up -- I'm hoping to let you configure arbitrary icon/image sizes for your launchbar icons soon.

Good news about icons sizes!

This is a bit off topic but on my systems, say I have 4 hidden launch bars, when LBC starts up it redraws the bars for what seems to be the number of times that there are bars.

Unless I've done something wrong (which is almost unheard of... just ask my wife) would it be difficult to suppress that behaviour while you are looking at this program? Obviously it's not vital but there's a certain annoyance factor associated with the flashing effect that this causes.

Sounds like a bug.. I will look into it.  I do seem to remember a related bug that got fixed -- are you using the latest version?

Yes. I just downloaded the latest and installed that in case version numbers weren't updated. Like the roof, there's quite a bit of flashing.
(I can send you dock files if you wish but it might be better for you to continue with icon sizing.)

Ok I can confirm there was an issue with LBC recreating bars more than it had to.
(this was happening both at startup and when resolution change was detected).

I may have this fixed. Can you try the latest beta and let me know?



My only concern is that docks may not be laid out properly at boot time, since I can see that one of the reasons the extra code was there was to kludge a fix for LBC being launched before the display was properly set up.  Hopefully that bug doesn't come back.
