2262: odd placement of Next Song Popup

Post by dtsig »

Occasionally when I run MM i will get odd placement of the popup as shown here https://www.dropbox.com/s/yn6mdxhc8ghd1 ... p.jpg?dl=0
If i reboot MM it will work as expected in bottom right corner .. until it starts acting up again. Not life changing but an irritant when watch baseball and the popup happens

interestingly I closed the browser with the game playing and then opened the browser without the game and it started to show in the correct location. it continues now to play in the correct location.

Have you tried capturing a debug log for this?

I haven't .. but I will

Edit: of course .. shutting MM down to start debugview then restarting ... all is well.I might have to start debugview during a run of mm

I've been told it's better to start DBGView prior to starting MediaMonkey as that captures more message from MediaMonkey. The long log that results from this isn't a huge issue if you save DBGView right after you capture your problem (so it's at the end of the log).

Does the next song popup appear in a predictable location?

For example, MM4 has had a bug where it appears in a predictable location when my display is scaled >100%. If it's scaled at 125%, the popup shows at (1/1.25 = ) 80% of the screen width x 80% of the screen height. And if it was scaled at 200%, it (probably) would appear right in the center of the screen.

If the location of the popup is predictable, even if it's incorrect, then it'll probably be easier to fix than if it's seemingly random.

What's your monitor setup? Are any of the displays scaled >100%? MM still has a lot of issues with display scaling unfortunately.
