More changes and some words on mouse "gestures" |
October 30, 2004, 20:13:07

This is the summary of today's work


  • changed avatar code.

  • new mouse "gesture". Double click the button bar while holding the left ALT key to show/hide the button bar and its controls. This is only temporary and will not affect the global options under Message Sessions->Messaging. It will also not be saved anywhere.

  • dividers can now use the popup configuration (basically, this wil dividers make appear in tabs which would also trigger a event notification popup, based on the containers popup configuration mode).

  • avatars are now updated in "real time" when you change the picture on the photo page.



More on mouse "gestures"


There are some more mouse shortcuts you may not be aware of. First, you need to doubleclick with the left mouse button on the button bar. The resulting effects are:


  • Without holding any modifier key: Minimize the container.

  • Holding the CTRL key while doubleclicking will close the container

  • Holding SHIFT will hide/show the titlebar.

  • And finally, holding ALT will temporarily toggle the button bar and its controls.


Every program has at least one bug and can be shortened by at least one instruction -- from which, by induction, one can deduce that every program can be reduced to a single instruction that doesn't work.
