Updated Badge Notification Manager




Badge notifications based on activity.

1. Compatibility

Most of you know that for applying a badge to the parent icon we need to have the application ungrouped. So, basically for this, we need to use Win32 API -> SetCurrentProcessExplicitAppUserModelID, which must be called during the application’s initial startup routine, before presents any UI, basically in the initialization of singleton class would be fine.

Before doing the ungroup of the taskbar, we’ve to check the operating system version, since there’re many players in metin2 who still using XP/Vista and this feature is working since Windows 7+. So there’s a function called IsWindowsCompatibleVersion which check if the version is at least Windows7 then trying to do the ungroup and if successful then set a variable m_isWindowsCompatible to true, so we can check later other functions with it, that means the feature will be totally disabled for those who aren’t compatible.

2. Cache features

When the application is created it’s loading all resources and creates only one object on the local system for the taskbar interface.
