Hello,

is it possible make taskbar on external monitor more real-time refreshing? I am using Miranda communicator, where is animate icons in systray. So the problem is when this animate icon appear, on second monitor I have blank space, because there is slow refresh. I have Windows 7 PRO x64bit.

Thank you in advance.

Hello, Petr

Could you send us a screenshot depicting the problem?

Could you also download another application that has animated taskbar tray icon - Process Explorer, start it and see whether the same problem persists for this application?


Best regards.

This problem is not in Miranda, extended taskbar have slow refresh rate. For example, when I start Steam or any app, which open in systray, on extended taskbar will show after a few seconds.
Btw. the Miranda icon animation is blinking message, and the extended taskbar very often refresh, when the animation is blank.

Here is a screenshot. The message icon is blinking, but on extended taskbar is slow refresh, so the icon shows only 5-6x per minute.

Main windows taskbar on the left side, AMM taskbar is on the right side.

Hello, Petr

The system tray part of Actual Multiple Monitors is refreshed in 1 second interval, hence the problem you observe. If we reduce the refresh interval this will cause high load on the system. Probably, in this case the better solution is to change the Miranda tray icon blinking interval (Options > Contact List > System tray icon > "ms delay" value). You can try different values, but maybe the optimal value is something more than one second, 1100 ms or something like this - in this case the blinking is not too rare, and each blink of the icon is displayed on AMM taskbars, although with some delay and it's not synchronized with the blinking on the system taskbar.

Please note, that in my version of Miranda 0.5 I had to read the current one and receive a new message in order to see the blinking interval change to take effect.


Best regards.

Ok with 1100 ms is better :) . Thank you. I am using the latest Miranda IM 0.10.80.0 . But I maybe switch to Miranda NG or Psi+ (Miranda IM is dead from 24.5.2018) .
