Hi

First of all, thanks Glenn for your work on this very useful tool. I love it.
I haven't found a similar topic, but I maybe haven't looked for the right tags.
I'm having a display problem with the url text when the scale is set to 150%.
I'm using v3.13.1.
I've just seen that there's a 3.13.2 version. I'm gonna try but I'm posting in case there's a solution.
Here's my full desktopinfo.ini file:

COMMENT=color:%white%,style:w,font-size:100%,text:INFORMATIONS SYSTEME
#DATETIME=interval:10,display:%9 %10
COLOR=%White%
COMMENT=color:%White%
HOST
BOOTTIME
USER
REGISTRY=tree:0,text:Système,key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProductName
NETWORKINTERFACES=interval:30,operstatus:1,iftype:6 71,row-text:%2,display:%8
LOGICALDRIVES=interval:5,diskio:0,font-size:100%,chart:bar max:100 series1:7 threshold:75,alarms:(%11 ge 10000000 0000f0)(%13 ge 10000000 0000f0)(%7 ge 90 0070f0),row-text:Drive %1: (%2)| %3,display:%6[1.0B]B / %5[1.0B]B
COMMENT=color:%White%
COMMENT=color:%white%,style:w,font-size:100%,text:POUR JOINDRE LE SERVICE INFORMATIQUE
COMMENT=color:%White%
CONTROL=type:1,color:%white%,text:Email,display:servicedesk@xxxx.xx,uri:mailto:servicedesk@xxxx.xx
TEXT=text:Téléphone,display:+33 (0)x xx xx xx xx
CONTROL=type:1,color:%white%,text:Suivi des tickets JIRA,display:cliquez ici,uri: removed link
COMMENT=color:%White%
CONTROL=type:1,color:%white%,text:Doc. Outils 365,display:cliquez ici,uri: removed link

The result is attached in the topic.
Is there a solution to this or not yet?

Thanks for your help

OH yeah, scale, that can be VERY picky!  Due to all the different vendors and models we use it took a loooong time to build a config that would cover the 80/20 or 90/10 ratios.  Check the manual for the BEGIN-ONLOAD/END-ONLOAD info.  Below is what I ended up doing to cover the bases.  Hope it helps.

 

[items]
#NAV=global:-1,font-face:wingdings,caption-prev:ç,caption-home:ÿ,caption-next:è,font-size:14
NAV=global:-1,font-face:webdings,caption-prev:3,caption-home:=,caption-next:4,font-size:14

it would appear that i too need to read the updated docs as the new 3.13.2 (I am on 3.10.2) has made some changes and now things are missing ;).

BEGIN-ONLOAD overall seems to still be working regards to scale so that is awesome.

what is not working appears to be all my control items. Like this one.

CONTROL=wide:1,left:%HNLeft%,font-size:%ControlFontSize%,button-color:%blue%,display:Goto Helpnow,uri: https://helpnow.companyname.com

@rtruss add width and height options.

@glenn

So, what has changed since 3.10 to require that?

How well does it scale when using those settings?

I compared the pdf from both versions and there is no difference within the CONTROL sections of the doc to indicate this. 

The code I pasted previously works perfectly on 3.10.2.4365.

OK, so I added a variable for width and height for my control items and still nothing.  I think you have a bug with the newer version and how it processes the ONLOAD items with this 3.13 version. I can only see stuff if I 'hard code' the width and height options as some already had variables for width and still not showing up.  Oddly enough the font-size, left and button color variables seem to work but not actual button sizing. 

 

I attached a scrubbed version of the ini file from my device, if anyone wants to confirm a bug with it.  I use powershell to tailor the config based on mfg and if it's a server or not.

Is hide-no-result not working either, at least for a CMD= item?

 

I have neither a reboot or updates but the text is still showing up, other items seem to be working but just not these 2.

# Pending Reboot

CMD=file:powershell.exe,parameters:-executionpolicy remotesigned -noprofile -file .\pending-reboot.ps1 ,interval:3600,font-size:120%,color:%Red%,font-face:Tahoma,text:Reboot Pending,no-wait:2,hide-no-result:1

# Windows Updates
CMD=file:powershell.exe,parameters:-executionpolicy remotesigned -noprofile -file .\windows-updates.ps1 ,interval:3600,font-size:120%,color:%Red%,font-face:Tahoma,text:Updates Pending,no-wait:2,hide-no-result:1
