    Just found it – like the concept,
    However it keeps opening new tabs – maybe because that’s my default FF setting.
    Would be really good if it would close the tab once you deselect the button – i.e. buttons act as toggles. Otherwise my tab bar just fills up. I just want to peek at the camera and then close the window again.

    @ Richard. It is designed to open new tabs, as opposed to opening new windows. I like your idea of having a button working as a toggle(just keep the tab open while the button is being held down and then close tab when button is released). I don’t know if you noticed, but if you press the same button twice, it will just focus the existing tab and reload it. Which buttons did you press the most: montage, cycle, monitor? I think I may be able to work a right click function on the buttons so that they can also work as a toggle in a future version.

    Thx for feedback. I was thinking more of a toggle on/toggle off type functionality, the the button remembers the state, you click it again and the the button deselects, and the related window closes. HTH

    @Richard. Would the button open a single camera, or the montage of cameras? What version of ZoneMinder are you using? I had to change things for ZoneMinder Client to work with different versions of ZoneMinder.
    If you need to just take a quick look at the montage without opening new tabs or windows, then the next version of ZoneMinder Client(still testing 0.3.0) might be what you need. I added a feature of opening the montage into the sidebar by pressing CTRL + ALT + Z. Pressing those keys a second time will close it.

    I’m on Zoneminder 1.24.2 as well.
    I only have 1 camera atm, so montage not really that useful for me – can’t really comment if it might be useful to others, though I would imagine. I suspect one might want to configure a “prime camera” – the one most often looked at – and a montage.

    @Richard. After I complete version 0.3.0, i will make you a custom version with a button that can load a selected monitor into a notification box(the box that drops down to ask if you want to save passwords). That will drop down to be easily seen, and then easily discarded without ever opening a new tab or window.
