Bugreport: Icon badge disappears when updating settings

Hi there,

I encountered a non-critical bug with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker I wanted to report.

I have icon 'badges' turned on for programs such as Discord, to indicate when I have a new notification etc.  I noticed that whenever I apply new settings with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, the badge will disappear, though the icon remains the same as before.

If I just close Discord, or whatever program lost its icon's badge, and then re-open, the badge will re-appear. Still, it's a little annoying that every time I change any setting in 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, I have to close and re-open all programs that use icon badges.


When certain tweaker options are changed (or at startup if they're enabled), the tweaker quickly hides and shows again all of the taskbar items to apply the options. For example, this is required when disabling grouping. As a side effect, icon badges disappear - it seems that when a taskbar button is created on the taskbar, it's created without a badge, even if it had one before, and it stays that way until the app adds a badge again.

Perhaps I could remember the badges before hiding the buttons and re-add them after showing. I might look at it one day, but it's not a high priority for me since it's not a commonly requested fix and not something that causes a lot of trouble.
