Updated title and first message.
Request is almost noone (is there anyone?) needs Spark to popup roster window when it reconnects. And i cant see if this is hard to implement as i can hide Reconnect window to systray by pressing X. Ok, maybe someone will need to see he’'s offline. So either add some systray offline/reconnecting icon, or make an option to let Spark popup on connectivity loss.
So, it’'s been a while this was messed up. This is second feature request by votes, and there is even two JIRA issues about that.
SPARK-14 is more suitable to represent that feature. Title is speaking about unchecking auto-login so this should be mentioned in Description (and fixed of course). I’'ve read in some thread, Derek said there is 5 secs period when Spark tries to reconnect. This could be enough for short wi-fi breakdowns. But i prefer Exodus approach. I can specify number of attempts and time between attempts (usually leave it at random). So this is enough for users to reconnect when i had to upgrade Wildfire, restart server or if there is some longer network breakdowns.
Second, this should be silent. No dialogs or popups while client is taking attempts to reconnect (could be some animated progress indicator in Spark roster window). Even more, there could be no popups even after all attempts are done. Systray icon would need Offline state (grayed maybe), so users would notice that they are offline. Ok, there could be some warning dialog, but this could be optional. I dont like how Spark behaves now. Too intrusive. And as i have to deal with ~120 novice users i insure that they do notice when their Exodus icons stay gray for a long.
Finally, someone should fix related stuff in JIRA. I mean adding more details to description and of course the FIX VERSION! It has 14 votes already so it worth to be implemented as soon as possible. 2.0 would be great
And remove the duplicate SPARK-48 with 5 wasted votes.
P.S. Auto-login is unchecked even after simple Logout. 2.0 Beta
