#2692 closed enhancement (fixed)

xpra transfer window add max size

Reported by: stdedos Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: trivial Milestone: 4.0
Component: client Version: 3.0.x
Keywords: Cc:


It might be nice to keep the window size up to a maximum size (and somehow wrap the full text on a tooltip)

Window size is a bit "weird" to me to what I am used to, but that's a nitpick.

Verified as fixed

r25906 makes it smaller, feel free to suggest a better size: you can tweak using this env var.

The more I think it, I think it should be the other way around:

  • The window needs to decide on a position+size (e.g. center of the active monitor, width: min(600, 50% of active monitor's viewport), height e.g. 4-6 rows + headers + buttons), and avoid "alternating" at all.

Text that doesn't fit gets a tooltip / scrollbar instead.

And while going back and forth with my thoughts, and the previous idea, I see another issue here:

  • The URL on the first image is filling the "Thing" column; this image has the url centered, with empty space left and right.
