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

Wed, 2015-07-29 11:45
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 : ...

make sense. However, on Haiku that space isn't wasted, because it allows stacking windows -- windows with tab views. As I wrote before, I find that that an awesome feature to neatly organize multiple browser windows on a single workspace. Losing that functionality would be... uh... a loss. Agreed. I may be in a minority, but personally I'd rather have ST be a feature that's strictly for the user's organizational purposes, and not co-opted by apps (or at least not without it being an explicit option). ...

Am 26.07.2015 um 20:09 schrieb Markus Himmel: Obvious ways of approaching this are: 1. Don't change anything and have the width change for each translator. 2. Make the preflet larger when necessary, but never smaller. 3. At startup, run through all translators to find the widest and use that for the preflet. If that turns out to be too small, fall back to option 2. ...

Wed, 2015-07-29 11:45
Regarding Ticket 12243 ( I aren't exactly sure how to best realize this idea. The problem is that the relevant part of the TranslatorRoster interface ( .h#n80) does not guarantee that, when the configuration view is requested multiple times, the width is always the same. This means that it is not possible to determine ...
