Complete Ticker Tape v1.1.0 change history

Solution

The following changes were made between the initial version 1.0.0 of Ticker Tape and version 1.1.0;

Bug Fixes

  • No longer crashes with an 'error 9' if there are more than the expected maximum of 21 sites in the TickerTapeSites.ini file, they're now just ignored.
  • No longer shows duplicate dialogs were a Site is un-contactable and then crashes (often with an 'error 401') if the initial 'Unable to query Ticker Tape message file ...' dialog is left on screen without being answered


Cosmetic tweaks/improvements

  • Version number changed from v1.0.0 to v1.1.0
  • Limited length of displayed Site Name in Site selection frame to 15 characters to minimize chance of text wrapping
  • Included software version number on various dialogs
  • Put single quotes around Site names on various dialogs & messages
  • Name of 'proposed message' control is no longer visible during initialization
  • Desktop icon is now named "Ticker Tape Administrator" rather than "Ticker Tape Admin.exe"
  • Added an 'On the web' folder to the Ticker Tape Start menu program structure


Enhancements

  • Width of message shown on screen of agents can now be controlled (as a percentage of their screen width) - To support this, a new parameter, 'MessageWidthPercent', can be specified in the TickerTapeAdmin.ini file which can have a value of between 20 and 100. By default this is set to 85.
  • Can now control both font family and size of the message shown on the Agent machines - to support this, new parameters of 'MessageFontFamily' and 'MessageFontSize' can be specfied in the TickerTapeAdmin.ini file and can be any valid values that will be recognised on the Agent machines.
  • Where Ticker Tape Administrator can't poll a Site to refresh its message status, you now have the option of cancelling any further polling attempts to it for that session


Known issues

  • (none)
