Invisible (and busy) Adiumy Dock Icon Missing

Reported by: Benjamindaines Owned by: nobody
Milestone: Adium 1.3 Component: None
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc:

Description

When invisible status is set the Adium duck shows it as being away, other icons (Victory Ducks) can show invisible status so why not add a sign for the duck to hold that says Invisible?

Perhaps, instead of a sign, a gradient fade in the alpha channel, from top to bottom? I'd like to avoid overusing the idea of "signs".

It is possible to turn on dock-wide fade, so that all hidden icons in the dock are only half visible. Not that I expect Apple to turn it on by default, it might just be good to have in mind.

Milestone: Adium X 1.2Good idea for "later"

Moving to the good idea milestone, move back individually if you intend to work on these.

Summary: Adium icon support for invisibleDock Icon Sign for Invisible

We just need an "invisible" sign to be made, after that it's pretty simple (adding a state with an overlay of YES) to add the support to the builtin dock icons.

I think a "ghostly" dock icon would be better than a sign. I've attached an example of what I have in mind.

comment:9 Changed 12 years ago by Evan Schoenberg

The only problem with a ghostly dock icon is that it might be mistaken for Adium being hidden... thoughts?

How about an icon of the duck behind tall blades of grass. You can only see his two eyes looking out.

comment:12 Changed 12 years ago by Jordan

That's my design for an invisible icon - it might need slightly less opacity to it, but I think it gets the point across nicely :)

Additionally, we could ask to use the black macbook from this xtra for a busy/dnd icon.

Wouldn't this be easily confused with the appearance of the dock icon after Hide Adium is selected from the Adium menu?

I'm confused... when I hide adium with cmd-h the dock icon doesn't change... and I haven't used a single app that behaves this way...

Wow... why isn't that enabled by default! Yes it might conflict, though that's just making it slightly translucent, this is a bit more involved. Nonetheless, I can see how it might still be hard to tell the difference. Perhaps we should put it in trunk to see how it goes, if people have a hard time differentiating, then take it out...

comment:19 Changed 12 years ago by bubbler

How about the body of the duck is translucent (as suggested by jas8522), but the eyes are opaque.

comment:20 Changed 12 years ago by Jordan

I like that idea... what about also having the bill opaque? Too much?

comment:21 Changed 12 years ago by Carlos Morales

comment:22 Changed 12 years ago by Evan Schoenberg

I think bill and eyes opaque would be good. We'll need an 'alert' (flapping) version, too :)

Ok, should I do it? Or is there someone designated for this kind of stuff?

Where can i get the original (big) pngs to work with?

comment:24 Changed 12 years ago by Evan Schoenberg

Anyone who is willing and able can contribute :)

[source:/resources/Adiumy512x512 Adium512x512] has the fullsize PNGs.

How do they look? OK?

I think they look great! May as well set this back to 1.3 now that we've agreed upon something and it's done!

comment:27 Changed 12 years ago by Evan Schoenberg

Looks great except for the light line in the bill of Adium512-Yellow4.png, which appears to have some mixed greenish colors to it. Can you fix that one? :)
