Custom font for tray icon?

Postby egbakaet » Mon May 12, 2008 10:33 am

Having custom font support (such as the ability to change it to Verdana, Arial, Tahoma as well as the size, style, and color) would be a BRILLIANT idea. It would be almost exactly like ATITool only for CPUS!

:D Thanks

Custom color settings are already in Core Temp. Just open the Options menu.
Custom font can be easily done, but the reason I will not implement it is a cosmetic one. System tray icon only has 16x16 pixels. And currently it's "optimized" for the best look, so the readings don't get cut off or anything.

C'mon. I use Coretemp so I can watch my overheating T8100 after undervolting (without loading 19 MB of Everest at startup). Ok it's accurate, but I can barely see the number.
I know my system tray will take at least an 11 point font at 1280X800. It's been 30 years since I was 30 and my eyes are not as sharp as many users.

Hell, I'll contribute again just to be able to read the systray. Help gramps out :)

Hehe, I'll see what I can do.

Currently I'm busy with work and college, so I just don't have much free time anymore.
But hopefully I can find some time to take care of these little quirks.

Thanks :)

Great. The new beta font looks better. I can see it w/o bi-focals, youngster !

Hee hee, just kidding. I did 7 years in college, chemistry & biochem + working, and
believe me, an education lasts a lifetime. Screw the fonts and hit the books, kid !

The 10 point tray text is good enough for now. Later, might need one in braille :)
