Display message: Balloons not gone on time.

Hi,

Has anyone see this behavior.

When setup a "display message" on action 1 With seconds to be displayed: 2 minutes.
Then the action after that (action 2) has also a "display message" with seconds to be displayed 5 seconds.

Action 1 has system requirements so it's possible that it takes not 2 minutes but for example 10 seconds.

Then i think i need to see.
Action 1 = running . display message for 10 seconds.
Action 2 = running . display message for 5 seconds.
Finished / hide the message balloons.

What i often see is that the balloons are hunging. So you see the message of action 1 a long time, until you click on it. Then the balloon of action 2 is showing.

For example i have a display message "Please wait until the software is updated". en then a message "update finished", but if the first balloon is not going. People can wait a long time 🙂

Re: Display message: Balloons not gone on time.

Hi Floort,

I have observed that the balloon tool tip that comes up in the notification area doesn't regards the system idle time. This is the behavior of windows. If we don't even move mouse pointer, then this time will not be considered for the time to display the prompt message.

Re: Display message: Balloons not gone on time.

Hi Floort,

When the action is configured to display the message for 10 seconds, When the bundle is executed and do some activity, the balloon tool tip disappears after 10 seconds. However when the system is left idle, then the timeout doesn't occur. Once the system is out of idle state by performing some activities like (eg: moving mouse cursor or switching between windows). The balloon tool tip will disappear after successful completion of specified delay time in active state of system.
