I reworked the window decorations, especially corners In the screenshot, you can see a preview of a simple non-uno window ( in gwenview ). I'm working on the frames right now, not sure what I want, but I don't like the default ones. I also reworked the tree views ( see bespin demo ), but it looks a bit weird
Ic, nothing I'd be interested in then, thx for explaining!
Yeah that looks nice, I see you got what you wanted on the deco
About the views... Thomas has made a rather advanced way of painting inside and over the views (so the shadows cover items), called VisualFrame. The way you seem to want it is just normal frames that go outside the view (like qtcurve), you don't need visualframe for this, so, you can just skip using visualframe on the views and draw normal frames using setpen and drawrect..... should get you what you want.
Btw, I too started re-writing the views a tiny little bit, check here: [link]
mostly tho, because I don't like that they are rounded even when they are near window borders.... plus, I wanted stronger shadows.
Thanks for the explanations In fact I'm also trying to avoid having these rounded corners nears window borders. Doesn't look consistant. A good example of this is kmail.
Not trying to feed a troll, throw a stone or anything, but I find that by default, QTCurve is somehow more consistant. Take something like the calligra suite, the "dockers" render quite strange in Bespin . Bespin has its own special way to render some widgets like progressbars and tabs. It's among other things what make it so special, but also a potential weakness as most of the apps are designed with the oxygen style in mind.
As a matter of fact, I really like "fixing" what I don't like in it even though I feel I'm breaking it a bit more every day
qtcurve is more general indeed, makes it more consistent in some cases. Bespin is much more experimental. Makes some things look out of place so to speak. I personally prefer experimental.
Calligra suite? dockers? I'm clueless as to what you are referring to here.
Yeah most apps that are designed to be used in the kde workspace tend to align more to oxygen. As that is what "normal" ppl use. Then again, sometimes programmers do stupid things just to get it look right with oxygen, that requires workarounds in bespin to look right.
about breaking/fixing, "things are going to get worse before they get better".
In doubt, just backup the file you are working on and delete it and svn up -> fresh copy. Thomas keeps bespin in neat condition, rarely commits code that is bad in some way.
