Some GUI requests

Post by Selyb » 2003-01-05 19:30

I don't just expect these to be integrated but only wish for them

Plug-in support
so people who dont want all the features dont have to have them installed

Customized URL handling
single or double click to execute or no execution
support for other protocols (ftp, dchub, aim, etc)
context menu for URLs

Colors
custom font and background colors for URLs, hub messages, username
instances, favorite user messages

Icons
would it be hard to point the icons to an external file(s)?
operator_broadband.ico, over40gb_dialup.ico, or maybe an *.icl or dll
taskbar icon, tray icon

Customize the layout and toolbar layout
pick which icons go on toolbar
move userlist to left side, top or bottom
ability to make transfers window and/or pm a separate undocked
window
custom column order (or disable) in userlist, transfers, and search

Search
search only certain hubs or exclude hubs
return a max of N from each user

Sounds
external wavs on certain actions
sound when certain text is detected (like username)

Columns
User Status
turn off transfer status progress bar overlay
make progress bar separate column

Possibilities for Plugins
User profiles (email, nick replace, send IM)
Text replacement
contact options column in userlist with icons for aim, email, Y!



whew,
like i said, its just a big ol' wishlist :D

That would be nice. Rest is crap IMO.
btw... boy have you got an irritating sig (it's just too damn distracting!)
