I can see you can bounce the dock... can you blink the
Windows taskbar? I thought I remember something generic like
InteractiveIcon.notify() which would handle the platform specific
method (bounce the dock icon, blink the taskbar item)? Is that not
Also, I can see I can get an application which runs in the
Windows system tray, but is it possible to get an application
running in the OSX system tray?
Ah, interesting. Thanks. So notifyUser is specific to
I'm just trying to wrap my head around how to make this cross
platform. It looks like there's still a need to write platform
specific code. If I made an application that ran in the Windows
system tray, for instance, I'd have to come up with alternative
behavior (run in the dock with no windows open?) on Mac. If I want
to notify the user something happened, I have to bounce the dock
and blink the taskbar. And what about Linux?
Maybe it's not feasible because of OS differences, but I was
expecting some APIs that would handle the differences for me, ie
the usual way to "notify the user" on Windows, Mac, Linux, the
usual way to "run in the background", etc. I suppose it would not
be too terribly difficult to write a simple framework myself, but
I'm not familiar with Linux and I don't have a Mac (or Linux)
maching to test on anymore, so I don't feel I can write any code
for those platforms at all.
