#14441 closed patch (fixed)

"Get Info" window refinements

Reported by: paulwilde Owned by: earthmkii
Milestone: Adium 1.5 Component: Adium UI
Version: 1.5hg Severity: normal
Keywords: get info, ui, inspector Cc:
Patch Status: Accepted

Description

I've cleaned up all 4 of the Get Info panes to make them look less cluttered and align correctly so that they correspond with the other panes width/height wise.

Made the Contact Icon smaller, so it fits better and doesn't look overwhelming. Moved the status icon to align to the right so that it mimics how people tend to have their contact list, and so the status/service icon don't looked squeezed together.

You can view the before/after here:

A lot of small changes, but helps a lot when it comes to attention to detail.

In the screenshot the bottom 'profile area' is fixed as a mockup, but as I don't know Obj-C I wasn't able to fix that myself. So no changes there, unfortunately. I'm pretty certain there's a ticket that expresses this issue in more detail.

Thanks for this. It's a solid start but I think refinements aside, the inspector needs to be scaled back functionally and the whole thing needs to be redesigned.

This patch has merit as it stands. jkantro, if you an idea of how to improve upon it, perhaps file a new ticket, preferably with a patch included.

Attached new .nib files due to the removal of AIPlasticButton.

Also switched the status and service icon around in the first pane, as suggested.

I made some further adjustments to the first pane, mostly minor. Both the service and the status icon are now to the left of the name. However, Frank, Thijs, Paul and I agree that the service icon should be removed. I will file a ticket a separate ticket.
