#252 new enhancement

Tooltip icons layout

Reported by: hbons Owned by: seanegan
Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.0.0 Keywords:
Cc: elreydetodo

Description

Mockups. I think this is the best way of getting rid of the clutter in the tooltips. 48x48 protocol icon with 22x22 status icon overlayed. Overlaying can be confusing but i don't think it is in this case, because the protocol and status icons are limited sets, in contrast to buddy icon overlays (the clearness of the overlay depends on the users byddy icon, which can be anything).

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by hbons

Oops... the mockups show 32x32 icons, 22x22 would look better i think.

comment:3 Changed 12 years ago by rekkanoryo

I like this concept. I agree that the 22x22 icons would likely look better, though. The 32x32 overlays look almost obscenely huge.

Attached the new mockup with more info.

comment:7 Changed 12 years ago by khc

personally, I think tooltip-explained.png is more cluttered that what we have now, rather than less, probably because most things don't line up.

comment:8 Changed 12 years ago by MarkDoliner

I agree with khc, tooltip-explained.png seems cluttered to me. I feel like this is a step backward.

  • Milestone changed from 2.1.0 to 2.1.1

comment:10 Changed 12 years ago by hbons

I made it so it's easier and more natural to read, and I think it does that. The most important info is placed at the top. It looks more like a business card now.

  • Milestone changed from 2.1.1 to 2.2.0

i like this tooltip-explained.png :) This is related to my defet #2110, which i think should be fixed before reordering the icons like hbons proposed ;)

comment:13 Changed 11 years ago by Sim-on

what you think of this? This is similar to this what hbons done but i think this presents the informations much clearer.

New layout is needed. Esp. the bigger icons.
