the window menu of gideon supplied from parts/windowmenupart lacks a number of
entries (Close, Tile, ...). The patch "windowmenu.patch" ads those missing
entries for both SDI and MDI modes. I uploaded it to your ftp server.
The patch replaces the old windowmenu of parts/windowmenu/... Therefore, this
part has to be deleted. The patch changes the makefiles accordingly, but does
not delete the subdirectory kdvelop/parts/windowmenu.
For MDI modes, the user can choose one of the three possible modes
(Childframe, Toplevel, Tab Page) either with the new window menu or the
settings dialog. Using the window menu changes the mode immediatly, the
settings dialog only takes effect at the next startup.
Switching to the SDI mode can only be done with the settings dialog.
During testing, I came accross a bug which causes gideon to crash on leaving.
The bug is located in the PartManager of kdelib-3.0.7. The PartManager does
not inform its parts if it is about to be destroyed. Therefore, a part tries
to access its PartManager, even if it is gone. The tiny patch
"PartManager.patch" takes care of this. I put it to your ftp server and will
send it to the KDE-Team as well.
I've added a view comments, mostly to the file "toplevel.h". The comments
create a start page with doxygen. The comments still leave much to be
desired, but it's a start.
To apply the patches:
In the kdevelop directory:
patch -c -p0 -i windowmenu.patch
rm -rf parts/windowmenu
In the directory kdelibs-3.0.7
patch -c -p0 -i PartManager.patch
If you experience two window menus, you have to delete the windowmenupart
pieces from your install directory:
