gridmove safe mode is not working with drag to edge (I don't know if that's intended)

You mean that with safe mode enabled, you can move windows with drag to edge that you can't with drag on titlebar? I just tested it and can't..-jgpaiva (February 02, 2008, 05:17 AM)

Latest build seems to have fixed that - at least now it doesn't do that anymore.

drag with middle button clashes with other applications needing the middle-button
(e.g. I use it to resize pictures in IE using middleclick+srollup-down)
What about middleclick on title bar only?-excogitation (February 01, 2008, 09:06 PM)

I know about that. But to be honest, it's way easier than drag on titlebar, and to have drag with middleclick on titlebar, it'd be almost the same as drag with left button on title. Thus, the best solution is to add the annoying window to the exceptions (present in the latest build)

Yeah - but ... but ... I don't know of a better solution  :(

with save mode on I can't resize some popups although they are resizable
(indicated by the resize handle - see attachment (can't you check for that resize
handle since it indicates (standard behaviour) a window being intended for resize)-excogitation (February 01, 2008, 09:06 PM)

Now that's strange... Is that a skinned window?
I can't improve the current detection (it even wasn't me who found how to do it!), but i suppose that's caused because someone is using a strnge, non-standard method for resizing windows :(-jgpaiva (February 02, 2008, 05:17 AM)

I'll make screenshots if it happens again.

how about moving settings to new tab in "settings" (about/help)
instead of making the right-click menu bigger each time sth new gets added-excogitation (February 01, 2008, 09:06 PM)

I've made several atempts at doing this, but still haven't found the courage to complete it. I will someday. (making GUIs is a royal PITA)-jgpaiva (February 02, 2008, 05:17 AM)

With Visual Studio it's done in a few minutes.

when dragging the window to a trigger area holding the mousebutton, then
rightclicking you can change templates - but only some - why?-excogitation (February 01, 2008, 09:06 PM)

That's because there's a cooler way to do what you mentioned ;)
There's an option named "set grid order". That allows you to define which windows appear in that rotation :)
-jgpaiva (February 02, 2008, 05:17 AM)

Yeah, seen that option - but didn't bring it into context (now I feel stupid). So that's that then.

One problem though. Sometimes the grids get messed up and you have to
click reload so that problem that messes the grids up has to be solved first.

How messed up do they get? what happens exactly?
-jgpaiva (February 02, 2008, 05:17 AM)

See attached pics.

The trigger area should only work starting right of the titlebaricon ending left of the minimize button,
but if you look at Resize.jpg and Grid.jpg you'll see what I mean
This is also a problem when I'm trying to click on a button in Miranda... always messes up the size
Maybe an undo last window in the rightclick menu?
-excogitation (February 01, 2008, 09:06 PM)

Sorry, but i don't see what you mean...
(there's a "last size" grid element that does that undo ;). You can find it in the edge grid template).
-jgpaiva (February 02, 2008, 05:17 AM)

If you look at the small pic "Resize.jpg" I'm just about to click the resize (enlarge?) button
(therefore "Vergrößern" as popupinfo) - and ind "Grid.jpg" you can see that that (because the
button is within the 100px) this activates the grid and the window is resized according to
the trigger area the window was in at the moment.

Thanks for the grids!!-jgpaiva (February 02, 2008, 05:17 AM)

You're welcome.
If you can't give money - at least you should try to give sth back by participating.

Ok... That thing with the grids definitelly isn't good.
Now, what i find really strange is that the grid is only made once and never more touched... I really don't know what that is, but i'll take a look at the code.

I know making GUIs with VS is really easy, but VS doesn't work with the language i'm using ( ;)

Now i understand the thing about the resize. What i really find strange is that there's code to prevent that. Probably it isn't working correctly!

Seen this: create GUI's easy?

 ;D Now that's funny, i had never seen anything like it :)
