#479 closed defect (fixed)

please show connection endpoint in tooltip

Reported by: onlyjob Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: core Version: 0.10.x
Keywords: Cc:


In earlier versions of Xpra there used to be an immensely useful feature to show connection endpoint in tooltip (see r1555, r1557, r1558) which is very convenient when more than one session attached.

In xpra-0.10.9 I've noticed that tooltip show only "Xpra" so I can't distinguish between xpra sessions. Please show connection endpoint in tooltip in order to help find which 'X' icon in system tray controls the desired session (when multiple sessions attached).

I don't remember when this regression appeared again... Thanks.

Ah, the tray code got refactored in 0.10.x, so some platforms (osx/win32 and hopefully soon also *nix) no longer use the gtk.StatusIcon which is a little bit too limited for our needs: it doesn't let us get an event when the mouse hovers over the icon and pass it to the server, we can only set the tooltip. The code must have fallen through that. Will fix.

r5007 + r5008 restores the code which uses the connection endpoint as title.

backported to v0.10.x in r5009 (only the first one is needed there)
