A feature request, from Bug 353227 - Make Dolphin's Find... button into a toggle, so it mimics the state of the search bar.
Once I sorted through the KToggleAction stuff, it was pretty straightforward to implement this. But there are underlying design issues that make it not as simple as it appears.
- Using the red X button to close the search bar will throw the toggled button out of sync. There's probably a way to solve that, though, except for...
- There can be two view panes, but there's only one Find button. If it's a toggle, then it will definitely go out of sync when switching between panes.
I'm at a crossroads. With just a single pane (and if we ignore the red x), it looks and works like the request asked - polished. But with multiple routes to throw things out of sync, I'm unsure how to proceed.
