INSANE FR:

I know that one can create & send a strange-msg packet (I tried, this works).
Such a packet that is ignored by official client.  You could then add some TLVs with special T field (e.g. T=0xCAFE) to that packet.  I guess, these TLVs will be ignored by official clients.

And more: in these TLVs, you can embed your own extensions of the protocol.  E.g. you can transmit a client version.

Now, my FR: implement a "your party is responding" feature (like one in the MSN messenger & IBM Sametime messenger).

I am drunk.  Copying this to the icqdev list.

- add "&rq page" & "&rq forum" to the "Support" menu of &rq.

3 FRs.

- minor inconvinience:  when windows taskbar is dragged to the left side of the screen, and the checkbox "Fix windows position" is checked, and &rq main window is dragged close to the taskbar (so that left side of &rq window touches the right side of the windows taskbar), THEN &rq unexpectedly jumps several (e.g. ~10) pixels to the right.  It shouldn't.  (When "Fix windows position" is unchecked, everything works fine.)

- minor inconvinience: when windows taskbar is at the left side of the screen, and I choose e.g. "add contacts -> whitepages", THEN the dialog is partially hidden by the taskbar.  It could move to the right a bit, so that the taskbar & the dialog do not overlap.  This behavior may also apply to other windows.

- ESC could close any dialog.

maybe i don't understand what you wrote, but why should you keep the "fix" option on if you don't want it to move windows?
it was made to prevent the window from being undraggable

i will let win32 place the window
probably now the window is set to display itself at design-position

hmmm, not sure this is good, sometimes ESC could trigger some other action, and there is already a hotkey for close (that is alt+f4)
so, does it worth?

yes, that's why i keep "fix" option off.  so this issue is not actually important to me.  i wrote it mainly to keep you informed.

You decide.

FR: Add option to make chat window auto-appear on the very bottom of the zorder. (This option should probably be represented by a single checkbox in preferences, affecting the entire &rq.)

Right now, when incoming msgs are received, and "events - messages - pop up chat window" is on, then this chat window appears on the top of zorder.  So if the local user is actively typing something, he is interrupted, when using the current behavior.

FR:

- when some user not in your contact list adds you to his/her contact list, THEN popup user details window or print all user details to the history log (depending on the "events" preferences).

1. z-order it's not related to focus, it seems that your problem is to loose the focus. would a "get focus" option be better?

2. don't think it's a good idea to popup the window if someone adds you. my advice:
for event "added you" enable
"add to history", "open chat"

you will be warned in a discrete way, and you can find a 1click button for the info, with hotkey too (alt+i). what do you think about this?

This has to be well thought out, so I cannot reply right now.

My typical behavior, when anyone adds me, is to open user details window, and to read everything. So the zero-click button would be convinient.  This zero-click feature could be turned off in prefs.

Just fantasies.

FR1

https:// urls could be clickable.

FR2

numbers >= 5 digits could be clickable, too, to add a icq uin to a current contact list

FR3

double-click on the url could spawn a browser (just like a signle click)

right now, it spawns the browser PLUS opens a chat message text window.  This behavior is IMO inconvinient.

I found a good enough argument to implement the following:

"ESC could close any dialog." [joxy]

Previously, rejetto answered with: "hmmm, not sure this is good, sometimes ESC could trigger some other action, and there is already a hotkey for close (that is alt+f4). so, does it worth?"

----------------

One second ago I thought that there is a "MS Windows GUI guidelines" document by Microsoft (can be found somewhere on their site).  And, I am almost sure that my guess is right:  that document probably specifies the "close dialog" action for ESC key as a common Windows GUI standard.  (I haven't read that MS guidelines doc.)

Final decision will, yes, be done by rejetto.

Also, ESC could hide the contact list window.
