Simon User Guide
Dock Icon and Menu
Simon has the ability to display important information on the "screen" of the icon in the Mac OS X Dock. When the application is running, and some tests have been added, the screen area of the icon shows an icon similar to those in the tests table, as seen above.
If any sites are down, the red downwards-pointing triangle is shown, with the number of failed sites displayed inside. If any site has recent changes, the green upward triangle is shown, again with the number of changed sites displayed. Otherwise, the orange triangle and number is shown, for sites that had errors recently. As with the tests table, the shade of the triangle indicates how recent it is. This acts as a useful visual cue to important events.
If any of the tests are marked as unviewed, a yellow sunburst is displayed behind the status triangle, as shown above. This can be disabled via the General Preferences, if desired.
Clicking and holding the mouse on the icon in the Dock will display a menu, as is standard for Mac OS X. In addition to the usual items, the menu includes some useful commands that you can perform without having to first switch to Simon, if you are in another application:
Check All Now: This command will cause Simon to immediately check all tests that are not paused. Simon will not be activated.
Pause All Tests: When this is chosen, all tests will be paused indefinitely, similar to choosing Indefinitely in the FilePause Testing... function when no tests are selected. It will then change to Resume All Tests, allowing all tests to be un-paused. Simon will not be activated. [Tell me more....]
Mark All Viewed: This command will mark all tests as having been viewed, i.e. remove the yellow indicator for all tests. Simon will not be activated.
