[Patch] Cycling Email Notifications
 
2 Attachment(s)
Here's something I've been working on recently. This patch allows new mail notifications to automatically cycle to the next one so you can see the entire stack before dismissing the ones you don't care about. It's sort of like an answer to this patch request, but you don't swipe to see the next notification; you just wait: [url]http://forums.webosnation.com/webos-patches/218089-patch-request-cycle-email-notifications.html[/url] This is a preview patch, which means the basic idea has been implemented, but it's not quite finished to the level I'd like it. Currently there is no visual feedback when the notification changes, other than the text is different. The automatic cycling interval is set statically to 5 seconds. You may change it near the end of the patch if you'd wish. I plan to have the dashboards animate when they cycle, and have the cycling interval adjustable in Tweaks.

Now available on Preware.

Updated: Now also available for phones! webOS 2.1.0 and 2.2.4, maybe any version >=2.1; PM me if you need it for a different version. May not be compatible with Sconix patch.

Thanks, I recall now just asking if it was possible. We have the greatest community ever.

That is really nice, gonna install shortly. Actually I am surprised more people didnt find that annoying and that it was not one of the very first patches. I just spend a lot of time just looking at webos and asking why not.

Trivia question: What was the very first patch?

laingman 01/04/2013 09:27 AM

Couldn't install with quick install or internalz, maybe need to delete some email related patches?

GMMan 01/04/2013 10:06 AM

It applies fine on my end. What webOS version are you using?

Franken pre webos 2.1.0

There's your problem. This is for the TouchPad, so it won't apply right. I've got a copy of the 2.2.2 emulator, though I'm not sure if the code would be the same. If you could send e a copy of the Email app, I can work on it for you.

I'll see what I can do. But this app for the touchpad is needed too cause with all the improvements they made there is still a point where one has open the app. Like they didn't finish the job, thanks again

So we can swipe away and rotate the notifications from the TP, any chance we can patch in deleting from notification like on phones? I want the trash can icon to delete from notification on the TP. The rotating + delete from notification would be the best. :D

GMMan 01/08/2013 07:27 AM

I noticed a little side effect when using the patch. The center button LED will turn off every time the notifications cycle. Not sure why it does that, though it probably has something to do with dismissing notifications. Not a big deal, unless you have something with keeping the LED on when an app is active.

GMMan 03/07/2013 08:13 PM

I forgot to submit this to Preware. Nothing has changed, but if I have time I may try to get animation working. The patch should be up in a couple of hours.

Edit: I don't think I'll implement animations, because the way the Dashboard kind and the actual rendering DashboardContent is separated. I won't be able to make any animations appear unless I do DOM wrangling, or try to manipulate the dashboard layers, adding sleeps, and annoying the heck out of people with constantly blinking notification light.

I've finished a new version for phones, specifically webOS 2.1.0. It's a lot less elegant than the TouchPad version (mainly because the Dashboard class is tangled in a minified file), but it delivers the same results.

Update: Checked the source file for 2.2.4, and it's identical to the one from 2.1.0, so feel free to give it a try for any webOS phone >= 2.1.x.

Great work! Any chance you could post some screenshots?

laingman 03/08/2013 05:43 AM

Thanks a lot. Great to have new/improved features for our devices.

baldric 03/08/2013 09:10 AM

Is the phone version on preware too?

Not yet. I'd like to get confirmation that the patch works on different webOS versions so.I may tick as many boxes as I can when submitting.

laingman 03/08/2013 12:55 PM

I installed with quick install with no problem on my frankenpre running 2.1, didnt have to delete any email patches, At first it didnt work with a luna restart so I did a full reset and now it works like a charm. Happy to report that delete from dashboard still works and no conflicts with advanced email prefs

One of the greatest patches ever. :)

GMMan 03/08/2013 12:56 PM

Good to see it works without having to sort out compatibility.

Works fine on pre2 v.2.2.4.
Do mind sharing the location of the minified file dashboard file.
I guess you didn't want to mess with the minified code and that's why you did with the email dashboard.
If the patch is done on the mojo framework dashboard then it can apply to all the dashboards that have multiple layers:)
I'm sure you have that in mind but simple index number or time stamp on the right upper corner could do wonders - adding it might be another thing:rolleyes:
