#5268 new enhancement

Taskbar button flashing - individually configurable per conversation/chat tab

Version: 2.5.4 Keywords:

Description (last modified by dandv)

When a new IM arrives in a conversation tab, Pidgin can flash the taskbar button and update its system tray icon accordingly. On Win32, flashing works on IRC channels as well with the Windows Pidgin Options plugin (this is a bit mysterious, since without this plugin, Pidgin can do flashing already - but this is a side issue).

I think a useful enhancement would be to allow the user to set flashing/systray notification individually per conversation/chat tab. A common use case is being on multiple IRC channels of different importance. For the less important channels, the user may wish to check if anything happened once in a while. For important channels, the user may wish instant notification.

This seems to me like a core Pidgin feature, much like logging being set on or off per conversation. Similarly, there would be a new entry in Options: notify on new message.

Control at this level more appropriately belongs in a plugin than in pidgin itself.
