From what i learned from BeOS and the dev newsletter i read back then - the idea was that there is nearly every time a other way instead of a blocking/alert windows. e.g. for videorendering you can have a Progressbar in the statusbar and still work in the program. Its way harder to implement but its way more smooth user experience. In your case Maybe just make stuff disabled with the notification media Server restarting.. and enable the ui parts when media server is running There are also programs, such as editing ones, which can't use the notifications. Think of a video editor progress window. ...

There is a ProgressWindow class written by axeld somewhere in the code, maybe we could move that to private interface kit and begin to work on a public class. Also it could be a BAlert subclass. On Mon, Aug 3, 2015 at 11:36 AM, Adrien Destugues pulkomandy@xxxxxxxxxxxxx wrote: ...

[haiku-development] Icon for multiple supported types? (Pete Goodeve)

Wed, 2015-08-26 19:45
Hi, Still working away on Sequitur... It has a nice [non-vector, sorry] icon for its supported 'audio/x-midi' mimetype, if Sequitur is the preferred application. However, the 'x-midi' version is sort of obsolete now, I think; Haiku seems to prefer 'audio/midi' pretty much]. To avoid back-compatibilty problems, I'd like it to show the icon for both mimetypes (it supports them both. now). Is there any way to specify this in an rdef, without just duplicating the data? ...

[haiku-development] Media services startup notifications (Dario Casalinuovo)

Wed, 2015-08-26 19:45
Hello, working on the stippi proposed solution for Media prefs i have come to the problem that Deskbar notifications are partially handed by the Media preflet, so in various situations it result in half notifications. I.e. sometimes the restart or start process end with a 70% notification where the services are correctly running, this is because launch_media_server doesn't manage notifications on it's own. This also happens with MediaPlayer which is using launch_media_server. My plan is to add two functions complementary to the existing ones : ...
