Hello, Yuri.
I have an idea to add auto-hide mode into NetMonitor when some connection is closed(like MediaControl do)

(RU-1251): õîðîøî áû äîáàâèòü àâòî-çàêðûòèå ïàíåëüêè NetMonitor, êîãäà îïðåäåëåííîå(óêàçàííîå â íàñòðîéêàõ) ñîåäèíåíèå îáðûâàåòñÿ(êàê ýòî äåëàåò ïëàãèí MediaControl ïðè çàêðûòèè WinAmp). Áûëî áû î÷åíü ïîëåçíî: ïðè îòñóòñòâèè êîíåêòà îíà íå çàíèìàåò ëèøíåå ìåñòî, à ïðè óñòàíîâêå ñîåäèíåíèÿ íå íóæíî áóäåò ñàìîìó êàæäûé ðàç åå âêëþ÷àòü.

Yeah.

Universal solution is to make three modes:
1. Full (fixed, no resize)
2. Short (trim on connection close - current behavior)
3. AutoHide (full hide on connection close)

imho, this will satisfy all users. Big Grin

You are right Toxic! This will be the best solution Wink

And one more pretty important thing about TLB:

When some element in TLB shrinks itself, a blank space appears. But this space still belongs to TLB's workspace and cannot be used by shell(for placing standard tasks' buttons).
So, this space is wasted. If user uses single-line taskbar it's very uncomfortably!

You'd do autosize mode to whole TLB. Thus, if any component shrinks, TLB will trim itself to free unused space.
I recommend you urgently to do this as soon as you can! Sad

three-mode model can be applied to Media Control too:

1. Full (fixed, no resize) - this mode is already present

2. AutoHide (hide on player close) - this one is present too

3. Short (only shows single button, which will launch player) - this is new mode, I suggest. It will spare a bit more space.
