Move to the Forground Trigger

Oct 24, 2012 at 6:38 PM

Would it be possible to add as a trigger (or a triggerable plugin), the ability to have LogExpert jump to the foreground (without grabbing the focus) when a certain line is logged?  I have an application with a very long startup time and I'd love to have LogExpert jump up and say howdy when the app is finally in a usable state.  Thanks.

Forcing a window to front does not work reliable. I tried several methods. It works sometimes and sometimes not (depending on how the window is hidden - minimized or not and stuff like this).

But you can use the "Flash Icon" plugin (shipped w/ LogExpert). It will cause the Taskbar icon to flash until the LogExpert-window is activated. I use this for the very same reason like you (waiting for an app startup finish). Activate it in the Highlight Settings (check "Plugin").

Thanks, I'll give that a try.
