Andrews Big Dialog Re-Design/OCAL
Jump to navigation Jump to search
* UI Redesign (which includes) - Altered the padding and packing of all widgets - Added search entry with clear and search icons - Added Open Clip Art Library (OCAL) Logo overlay - Put descriptions inline in list - New preview widget that shows extra metadata - New status widget to notify on errors/success etc. - Dialog is now persistent (retains state) - Better messages for the user - Changed title/menuitem to 'Import Clip Art'
* Backend stuff (which includes) - Use new GFile API instead of depreciated GNOMEVFS - Use async methods so the UI isn't blocked - Use smaller, thumbnail images in the preview widget (save on bandwidth and increase speed) - Implement cancelling of operations - Put downloaded resources into one directory, from which we can use later - Big cleanup in terms of code
