[jitsi-dev] Jitsi notifications in Windows


#1

I've just started using Jitsi again, mostly for IRC (thanks for all the work in that area).

I have a feature request regarding notifications on Microsoft Windows.

In Jitsi when a new message arrives the icon flashes continuously in the task bar. Ideally the icon would flashes three times then go permanently yellow (to avoid distracting you further).

(The ideal behavior is possible in Windows since Skype behaves that way, but unfortunately I don't have the skills or knowledge to help with coding something like that.)

P. S. I'm using Jitsi 2.5.5388 nightly on Windows 7

Welcome back :slight_smile:

yellow (to avoid distracting you further).

I think this is mostly caused by the assumption that there's only a single chat window. So while in multi-window mode, a random one is alerted and the somehow not stopped again. I'll try to take a look at this as it sometimes annoys me myself, but I don't know when I find the time yet.

I think that’s been there next to forever.

Hi,

You're welcome! Good to hear that you are interested in this addition.
It's still actively being developed, so if there are any issues, be sure
to drop a mail on the mailing list. I'll keep an eye out for them.

I recall having a similar issue on Linux of never-ending flashing. I'm
not sure, but I'll keep an eye out for it. So that we at the very least
know the scale of the issue.
