<build 7000> Jump List refresh (WLMessenger example)

Submitted by billerr on January 9, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Usability

When you open the WLMessenger Jump List, and change your status, the choice is not reflected on the Jump List itself. It just keeps the state it had when invoked.

I don't know if this happens generally on Jump List with such checking controls, if it is fix it.

Also since we're on the matter of WLMessenger Jump List, please remove the ugly centered lines that seperate the different groups of options. They are nowhere else found, and they look disturbing because of the lack of adeqauate spacing. Having some more space where a separator is needed would be more aesthetically pleasing.

Make Jump Lists refresh their state when choices are made in them.

Changed title from [Jump List refresh (WLMessenger example)] to [<build 7000> Jump List refresh (WLMessenger example)].
Changed problem description.

Yeah, I noticed that too.

Also, it should be minimizable to the system tray.

It does eventually change the status/sign out/whatever-you-select-from-the-jump-list though it just has a very long delay until it actually performs the action (talking like 10-20 seconds)

The status in Messenger does indeed change (immediately for me, any delay might be for performance reasons). The bug is that the jumplist does not update accordingly to show the new status, you have to re invoke it.
