A suggestion for Communicator and other clients - "Projector" mode RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • This is a bit whimsical, but also a bit practical...

    There should be a status of "Projecting Desktop" that can be set. 

    I believe, at least on Vista & 7, the OS can indicate if a projector is connected and being used. If so, the client can indicate that a projector is connected as part of the status. 

    The practical part being that others are notified if someone is projecting their desktop - a projector icon would be ideal, but at least a notification before sending an IM that the recipient is projecting their desktop:


    (Yes, of course the right answer is - don't send IMs like this...)
