What does LCA-Agent do?
LCA-Agent runs in the Windows system tray and checks with LeatherCom.Au's server (at 
selected intervals) for all active topics (all posted offers or requests for that particular day). 
It then flashes a small icon in Windows system tray (near windows clock) and alerts you 
to new offer or requests that are being made by other members of the site, offers or requests 
you might not be aware of, yet should be. 

Clicking the program's icon in the system tray will then open a small window containing a full 
list of "Today's active topics". You can then click any offer or request you might like to read 
and respond to it immediately.

Simply put, think of it as your personal agent at LeatherCom.Au. Your direct link to the 
market place where thousands of other leather professionals communicate and trade goods 
on a daily basis. Responding to offers or placing requests is now only one click away.

It then connects to LeatherCom.Au (if your computer is online) and query the server for 
"Today's active topics" posted at LeatherCom.Au. If there are any new offers or requests 
for that particular day then the program will pop a small window on the bottom right corner 
of your screen (see Fig 2a.), or flash the icon in system tray (depending on your 'Options
settings) whenever it detects new topics, topics that you are not already aware of (See 
Fig. 2a & 2b). Thus, enabling you to quickly respond to new offers or requests.

LCA-Agent (by default ) will pop up a small window (as shown in Fig. 2a. above) 
whenever detecting new topics, those that you are not already aware of. However, 
you can elect for the program to flash the icon in system tray instead (as seen in 
Fig. 2b. above) by removing the tick from "Pop up window automatically" located on 
the options screen. You then need to left click the icon in system tray whenever 
flashing in order to load the topics window (as seen in Fig. 2a. above)

Please note: the program will not be able to communicate with the server if the icon
is not present in windows system tray (the program is off) or if your computer is offline 
(not connected to the internet).
