    Re: Mac-style Menu Bar for GTK and Java/Swing applications!

    Hi all,

    this looks really nice! But I have one question:

    Of course it is the idea of MacOSX, but why not enhance it? The idea behind it is to have only one menubar, because we only can work with one window in parallel.

    What about doing the same with toolbars? I am not sure how it could be made looking good. But maybe this is similar intuitive. Maybe a good designer could make a mockup showing one central toolbar on top of the desktop with the menubar.

    The problem is, that the toolbars have different sizes in applications. The menubar always has the same size. But maybe anybody has a good idea how to make it functional.

    Just an idea.

    Greetings

    Mike

    While I like the central menubar I don't see how a central toolbar would work. For one, a window can have multiple toolbars. Further more, toolbars are often user editable. How would you handle this?

    Still waiting for a freedesktop standard for a central menubar,
    Still waiting for official gtk integration.
    Still waiting for support of non-gtk programs.

    2) How, by editing a theme's gtkrc file, can I allow/change a panel background?
    1- I think thats a font problem, try with another font.
    2- You have to add something like this:
    Code:
    style "menubar"		
    {
    xthickness			= 0
    ythickness			= 0
    	engine "pixmap"
    	{
    		image
    		{
    			function	= BOX
    			state = NORMAL
    			file		= "panel-bg.png"
    			border	= { 0, 0, 0, 0 }
    			stretch	= FALSE
        		}
     	}
    }
    
    
    class "GtkMenuBar*" 		     style "menubar"
    widget "*PanelWidget*" 		style "menubar"
    widget "*PanelApplet*" 		style "menubar"
    class "*Panel*"		 style "menubar"
    Replace panel-bg.png by the image you want.

    The same here for the panels:
    Code:
    style "panelbg"
    {
      xthickness            			= 0
      ythickness            			= 0
      bg_pixmap[NORMAL]				= "panel-bg.png"
    
    }
    class "*Panel*" style "panelbg"
    class "*notif*" style "panelbg"
    class "*Notif*" style "panelbg"
    class "*Tray*" style "panelbg"
    class "*tray*" style "panelbg"
    You have to check that this options doesn't already exist in the theme. Just in case add the options to the end of the gtkrc file.
    Also check at the beginning for the "include" option. They have priority.

    Macs actually kind of have this (sometimes). If you fire up MS Word on a mac, the toolbar is detached and by default aligned with the menubar. When you switch applications (if I remember correctly), the toolbar disappears. I would imagine something like this wouldn't be too difficult, so long as the software you're using used the gtk.Toolbar (or whatever) class, which I'm sure not all software does.
