Auto-Reconnect not working after Hibernate
« on: October 23, 2012, 07:34:24 AM »
Hey everybody,

I'm new to IceChat, as I'm trying to slowly transition to it from mIRC. It looks really nice and seems to carry quite a bunch of features. Please correct me if I state something that has already been noted, as it might just be the different experience between mIRC and IceChat for me :)

Problem: Auto Server Reconnect does not work automatically after being in Hibernate or Standby. You have to first start typing something in the chat, before it recognizes that it has lost the connection and then it reconnects.

Should Be: After getting back from Hibernate, it automatically starts connecting to the Server etc. again, without having to touch IceChat (works that way at least in mIRC).

Computer: Laptop, Win7 64bit
IceChat: 7.70

Keep up the nice work :)

Thank you for the bug report.

IceChat 7 is no longer being worked on, as IceChat 9 is now in process.

Hey there,

thanks for the quick response. I'll try out IC9 once it is up on the downloads page again. (seems like the link is currently not there)

Thanks, looking interesting, but did you do away with scripts and such? I can only find an option for PopupMenu & Aliases. Anyways, I guess one step at a time :) Thanks again for showing and I'll start with IC 7.

Yes, no more scripts in Ice9. This is mainly because IceChat 9 is a rebuild from the ground up, and works cross platform, and the vb script engine does not work in a 64bit development nor in Linux/Mono.
It is currently only plugin driven, and a vbscript plugin is in the works, but not completed.
