I originally planned to post some more information on the scripting, but to be quite honest, I haven't spend all that much time on it today. Originally I set off to further investigate the methods I use to create toasts, and while working on that I stumbled on more advanced method that was far more flexible and allowed for far more things to set up.
Originally I could change the text, and the actions that occur when clicked/closed/options clicked.
Using this new method I can:
  • Link a toast to a user, so it displays the DP and background color associated with that user.
  • Force a background color for a normal toast.
  • Change the text in the bottom-right corner ("Options")
  • Change the time a toast is displayed (I can even have one that never disappears)
  • Change the sound that is played when the toast pops up.
And there are still other, not yet identified, options I can set! biggrin.gif

A little teaser:

As for scripting, yes I will allow scripts to use these techniques too smile.gif

That's Awesome... Being customizable and all, I spose with scripting we'll be able to assign toast 'colors' to a specific contact... Well I must congratulate you for ditching the information about scripting, to present us with one red hot 'TOASTING TEASER'...
IMHO this topic isnt for you to keep us up to date with how your going tongue.gif .. It's more of a 'NER NER' topic sad.gif

Great Job!,
Aaron

Thank you! Can't wait for the scripting! smile.gif

I'm quite sure you can set size as well.. Because the Alert toasts are bigger! smile.gif

I suppose it's good if your Messenger isn't skinned, but would the same apply if your messenger is skinned? (I assume it would, but there those of us who have skinned messenger tongue.gif)

Yes, it will work with a skinned messenger. SP is calling WLM's internal routines, so if WLM is skinned, SPs toasts will be skinned too smile.gif

No, it only calls the toast and its colors locally.
