Add a Reminder/s Floating Window

I think a floating window of reminders, that can be viewed when the online payment window is open, would really be nice. I can not say how many times I have gone back and forth between the home reminders and "online payments" to schedule a payment or clear its reminder. This would not include the reminder calendar view, just a list as in the home page list.

    FYI - You can use extension list_future_reminders or extract_data:reminders to popup a floating window...

    Pretty cool Stuart. I had not noticed the reminders extension. I installed and it indeed does what I want. Thanks.

    I also added your summary page balance ext. Works great. If it were multi-instance, it would go a long way to meeting the functionality I have been (for years) requesting of a mult-instance with balance version of the summary page thermometer graph.

    @avp2 I've been awaiting the multi instance question... 
    Perhaps...

    Cool. If anyone can do it, it’s gotta be the Toolbox ‘guy'.

    realistically how many instances do you want....?
    Depends if I can be lazy or not....

    Three would be useful. Probably would not use more than ten.

    I have that many numbers going now (between ratios, thermograph and your balance) going now on my summary page. Along with ten budget bars and stock at a glance, it make a pretty decent finance “dashboard”.

    @avp2. Just for kicks I created instance 2

    Download from here:
    https://github.com/yogi1967/MoneydancePythonScripts/raw/master/net_account_balances2.zip

    You will also have to update / reinstall the main extension version too.. (I had to tweak it). Download from here:
    https://github.com/yogi1967/MoneydancePythonScripts/raw/master/net_account_balances.zip

    Let me know if both are OK...

    I will have to ponder on the master plan about more than 2 as creating 10 copies of the extension will be unmanageable.... Let's see how two works for you...

    Seems to work fine Stuart. Question, is two the instance limit? Or, can I just copy the .mxt and give it a unique name ….3, …4, etc to add as many instances as I want?

    @avp2. A question. I believe the best design for multiple instances of NAB extn is where you have one extension, one home page widget and on that widget it has a row per instance/value. In the setup you tell it how many instances and what accounts per instance?

    No, you cannot copy the extension and rename. Sorry.

    … rather than spawning multiple separate home page widget, which I think would potentially cause performance issues….

    For me, one extension with instances shown as rows would be fine, especially if it would reduce the spacing between instances - now kind of large. And, I agree, a significant performance drop in the overall program would not be good.

    Glad I did not try the copy before asking.

    I think I found a bug, reopen the MD, the second or third row disappear. It seems the store list changes not function well.

    Hmm. Store does not save. It stores in memory only for that session. When you are sure about your changes click SAVE. Let me know?

    … I just applied the same fix to all my extensions/scripts (as certainly extract_data:stockglance2020 would fail given the same scenario). Thanks.

    Ahhh. Must be double-byte again. Can you restart MD, pull up this window again, show blank, and then email me the Console output as a text file? Thanks

    Thanks.. Fixed and new version uploaded to my site.. Just a silly debug message crashing when spitting out debug messages related to double-byte characters. Hope the new version works ok.. Thanks
