Patch for KSmoothDock

Minimum required   KDE 3.2.x
Downloads:  736
Submitted:  Nov 4 2008
Updated:  Nov 4 2008


This is only a patch for KSmoothDock of Viet Dung Dang which implements some improvements in the parabolic zoom:
- Animation is not in a fixed point anymore. You can move your mouse
and animation updates when zooming in and out.
- You can re-enter and re-leave the dock and animation goes smooth
(this is only visible with slow speed, so you get time with the mouse
to do that)
- When going out of the limits of the first and last icon start
minimizing (because doesn't make sense continue with the zoom if you
cannot click anywhere)
- When going out of the limits of the first and last icon does not
update the position, so you'll always see the last icon with big size
before start minimizing.


- The first file I uploaded was a bad patch. It should be solved now

Any comments would be appreciated. It's a quite small patch with some minor improvements in the parabolic zoom, but I think that the zoom looks much better with them.

I didn't liked too much the behaviour of parabolic's zoom, because whenever you touch the dock, the animation was static, so if you continue moving the mouse throug the dock, when the animation finish the mouse is far away from the start of the animation, so a bad effect occurs.
Usually, this is only visible with slow speed animation, but I didn't like this behaviour.
Also I didn't liked that when you move horizontally the mouse through the dock, updating of the parabolic zoom continues even if you are beyond the icon limits, so you can't click anywhere, so the logical behaviour would be start minimizing.

Thats why I made this small patch, of course KSmoothDock is absolutely great, I only tried to modify some small issues so it looks better for me.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
