Nowa wersja beta: 1.2 build 10 http://www.lakeridgesoftware.com/?pg=betaWhat's New in 1.2 build 10Keystrokes not recognized by WAD are now forwarded to the builtin Today screen in an attempt to allow Treo buttons to work properly
In previous builds, any keystrokes that WAD didn't recognize were "eaten" by the program. This broke a lot of customizations made by the OEMs (the Treo devices being a prime example). WAD now forwards those buttons to the builtin today screen now. Hopefully this will alleviate some of these issues (without a Treo to test with, I can't say for sure).Added a pressed state image for shortcuts
Just like with the buttons, shortcuts that are not using the default icon can now specify a "pressed" state image.Added a "%NextAppt%" variable for text objects to display the time and subject for the next appointment for today
I think this is self-explanatory.Fixed a bug in the two-state buttons where, if the images were not the same size, they would not update properlyFixed a bug where the SMS and Inbox accounts would be cleared on WM5 devices
This fix only applies to WM5 and later devices. Instead of attempting to read the folders manually, I can now query the OS for the unread count of the builtin folders: ActiveSync, SMS and MMS.On WM5 devices, the Missed Call count should be more accurate
I recently found a registry key that WAD now reads for this information. For WM2003 users, the functionality remains unchanged.Cleared up some artifacts left over when dragging buttons with text
When dragging buttons with text around, they should not be leaving stray pixels on the screen.The analog clocks now handle timezones that shift the minutes as well as the hours
When I originally added the timezone information to the analog clocks, I was unaware of timezones that shifted the minutes instead of just the hours. This appears to work correctly now.Text on the buttons now wraps to multiple linesThe text objects now update a bit more reliably
The unread count and the upcoming appointment and task counts now update properly.Fixed a bug in the notification system
This is really just half of the problem with the notifications. For this to work properly, you must be running WisBar 18.104.22.168 (the latest beta). The system that communicates the notifications between the two applications has been changed. To this end, a new version of WisBar Lite will be forthcoming as well.Fixed the copying of docks
Docks weren't copying properly on previous builds. Now, when a dock is copied, the contents are copied and the dock is renamed to "Copy of <name of dock>" The copied docks also now appear to work on the correct virtual page.Fixed a crash that occurred when changing the device's orientation
This was mostly due to how the Today plugins were handled. I recently poured over the OS's implementation and implemented something similar.Fixed a bug on PPC2002 devices where the browse button for the analog clock object didn't workFixed the z-ordering of pinned items
The "Bring to Front" and "Send to Back" options didn't seem to do anything on pinned items. Also, when pinning an item, it appeared to always pin that item on top. This has all been corrected.Fixed a bug where the page order for buttons that switch between pages wasn't being preserved correctlyIf the user needs to use # in a phone number shortcut, that number can now be wrapped in quotes
For example: "*86,#1234"
The quotes are necessary because otherwise everything after the # will be dropped. This is due to the way the .ini reader handles comments.The "Tap Action" for a custom text object will now allow the user to input text beyond the edge of the box
I was previously unaware that it wouldn't let you type more characters than could be seen in the box.
