ngraham added a comment to D21042: Refactor Spectacle's platform backends.

I will note that exactly what I was worried about happening did in fact happen: @bgupta disappeared again and the new code style is annoying and irritates other contributors.

I think good tooltips and good UI should be enough.

So "1) Focus on comprehensive tooltips" it is?

Hi, I think that the discussion "What'sThis vs. tooltip" is also a consistency problem. Referring only to SystemSettings, it seems there is no a rule: in some module "tooltip" are used, in some other What'sThis are used. In this moment I prefer tooltip, to be honest, because I dont't think users know how What'sThis can be triggered. Now What'sThis are simply generally "hidden", and users need all the information someone have provided: if there is a tooltip you just have to hover. Anyway What'sThis can carry more informations, but they should be grafically visible (for example after pressing the "Alt" key, or similar, their area should be colorize in some special way) and everyone should know they exist, too...

Thanks! Keep in mind that we want this to apply to 3rd-party apps as much as possible as well. Even for apps that only get a KWin-drawn SSD titlebar, we still want that titlebar to have the same background color as the whole Tools Area on a KDE app.

mart added a comment to T10201: Window titlebars.

looking a bit at the problem and at how KColorScheme works, my proposal is the following:

  • have a new group in KColorScheme, independent from window titlebar colors, called ToolsArea, HeaderBar or something like that.
  • Breeze QStyle would use that kcolorscheme group for the top titlebar only
  • Apps can use it for extra things if they want
  • the breeze decoration, would use that new group, and *not* the [WM] group, which doesn't have enough colors for actual widgets to work into (just like oxygen which doesn't use those colors)
  • if there is a setting in the decoration or somewhere else, the actual decoration would use this group only there.
  • Ideally, KDecoration (and somewhere in the styles?) could have some api to advertise if this fusion of titlebar/toolbar is supported by the moving parts

mart added a comment to T10201: Window titlebars.

Note: the kirigami patch implementing it was wrong, caused crashes and has been reverted.
the way this thing wants to be implemented needs to have 2 parts:

  1. a new titlebar (or whatevergood semantic name for it) needs to be added to KColorScheme https://api.kde.org/frameworks/kconfigwidgets/html/classKColorScheme.html#a49fb44861670c838d940c70205318136 so then is easy for qwidget applications to use it (and is also the proper place the kirigami desktop theme should take it from)
  2. in Kirigami, also use a colorset just like all the other colorsets, which in the desktop theme would take it from KColorScheme just like all the other things
  3. (the half-deprecated) Plasma::Theme should get it too for compatibility

The-Feren-OS-Dev added a comment to T10201: Window titlebars.

Yes, I'm aware of that, but even on that screen there's a mention of "Application Style" that implies the decoration of the entire window. It's just a mass of redundancy and confusing naming all over again. Can we not declutter this? And coming back to a discussion on the evolution of breeze: dial back the usage of styled frames?

I think that the highlighting is guidance enough to let the user know what setting they are currently tweaking. The labeling on the "back" button should also imply where the user is going to go back to when they click it to connect the "<" icon and label to the general action that is happening when this is clicked.
