IDEA: DropZone auto-hide, auto-show while dragging?
« on: February 12, 2013, 04:38:46 PM »
Hi..
I found DropZone a really useful tool, but I didn't like that it shows on screen all time. How about adding auto-hide to it? and then DropZone window will auto-show when we start dragging selected files, and it will auto-hide again when we drop the files. Do you guys think its possible?

Welcome to DC Elancore,

It's more useful to add the intended application name in the title of the post, when posting in a generic forum.

And besides that, double-posting isn't needed, Skwire reads your request when he has time/is available, he may be living in another time-zone from where you are...

I put my post in a spoiler cause I'm not sure what's correct - I *think* that this board ("Finished Programs") is not actively reviewed - AFAIK it's more for requests that have been finished so it might not be checked often.

According to Skwire's dropzone page, the discussion thread for it is here:
http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=25410.0
You might get more attention Elancore if you post there :up:

Spoiler
Hi Elancore - you posted this in the wrong section - it's on the "Finished Programs" section which many people dont look at.

Can some moderater move it to Post New Requests board?
(It might get some more attention then)

EDIT/ what is DropZone anyway Elancore?
Is it from this site? No doesnt seem to be... (some more info + link might help :up:)
Funny - I didnt find it in dc search but it's an app of Skwires

Hi, Elancore, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :D

I found DropZone a really useful tool, but I didn't like that it shows on screen all time. How about adding auto-hide to it? and then DropZone window will auto-show when we start dragging selected files, and it will auto-hide again when we drop the files. Do you guys think its possible?

Unfortunately, I don't know how to capture a general drag event like that (or if it's even possible).

Hi Skwire and thanks for reply..

I understand what you mean about capturing drag event, I didn't see anything similar too.
How about when you are touching screen edge or corner?

Something like the DropZone window is 95% hidden, then it shows up when touching the screen edge on that area?
I just like this app and I want to get the best of it  :)

Thanks a lot
