[haiku-development] Re: Allowing BAlert without buttons denied (Dario Casalinuovo)

I don't see how this is related. Why can't the application continue to run in the background, no matter if the user closed it? The discussed solution of having the app wait for media services restart on close, and showing an alert with an 'Abort' button is the best solution as far as i can see. Because the restart might block up eventually, and this give a visual feedback of what it's happening. Quitting the window might cause the app to become a zombie in the worst case and anyway, the user ...

This makes sense to me, and having a single repository is better than having to add two (native arch + any) on the user side. The existence of any architecture is not something end-users are concerned with, so they should be in the same repo as other packages. Note that on our current repo, all packages are stored in a single directory ( the repos are just linking to them. This means the packages themselves ...

Does Haiku have the concept of toast notifications?  I'm thinking of something Growl, Snarl, NotifyOSD or even OS X Notifications does. They're not a direct replacement but would obviously be a good replacement for Media Server stopped, Media Server started, Rendering complete notifications. ...

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, 2015-09-02 09:45
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? ...
