"Restore from Tray" selects text in channel window
« on: October 23, 2006, 01:32:48 AM »
Hi,

first: I use Icechat since years and it is a very good IRC Client. Thanks for this!

I have recently installed the 7.0 (20060924) version and have a problem with the option "Restore from tray".
You have to do this to reproduce the issue:
1) Connect to a server and join any channel. Wait until the channel window is getting full
2) Minimize the program to the tray
3) Doublecklick on the tray icon to maximize the program
4) Move the mouse to the channel window

Result:
The text in the channel window gets selected (blue marked).

This is very stressful. Perhaps you could try to fix this?

I have Icechat installed on WinXP SP2.

Thanks!

Robin

Sorry, I have tried this, and it does not happen.
Text gets selected when the mouse button is down.

Does clicking in the channel window fix the problem at all?
Does it do this all the time for you?

I have tested it a little bit more. The problem does not always happen. I think in perhaps 1 of 2 tries. Clicking in the channel window stops selecting the text in the channel window. It is like Icechat thinks the left mousebutton is pressed when I move over the program after restoring it from the tray.

One hint that perhaps help you finding the bug: The problem does not occur if I use the right mouse button on the tray icon and select "Restore form Tray" in the menu. It does only appear if I doubleclick with the left mouse button on the tray icon. (This is a good workaround for me)

I will retest the problem today afternoon on a second WinXP computer.

Ok, I have retested it on a second WinXP SP 2 computer and the problem does not occur. If I found anything new I will post it here.

Sounds good. It just does not seem like a normal problem.
I will check some things out anyways, and see if I can find out something that could cause the problem.

Thanks

I have tested a little bit more and have found a similar problem with an other applications on this PC too. So this is probably not a Icechat problem. Sorry for the confusion.

Well, that is good to know, because I just could not find any reason at all why it would be have like that.

Finally I have found the reason for the problem. It was the program taskbarshuffle(http://www.freewebs.com/nerdcave/taskbarshuffle.htm). After removing this software, the problem does not happen anymore. So this seems to be a bug in taskbarshuffle and not in Icechat.
