    Jason: Excellent!

    that font looks like it will work. Is it the default font?

    I would point out that instead of centering the final list, it would look sharper to have everything left aligned. maybe we could make the gradient a little darker.

    i'm so glad you helped put this together. I'll take a look and see if I can contribute when I get home tonight.

    it's actually Prelude Medium, one of Palm's built-in font. I have it set as all uppercase. I'm thinking the letters look a little close together and we might want to use letter-spacing css to space it out a bit more

    they easiest way of seeing the patch is applying it (in this case emulator is probably idea).

    However, if you're just trying to understand the patch format, I can help ya.

    Currently we're using the Unified Diff format.

    using your example:
    125 is the start line of the following chunk of code, prior to applying the patch

    7 is the number of lines in the proceeding chunk of code, prior to modifications

    135 is the start line of the chunk of code, after applying the patch

    7 is the number of lines in the chunk of code, after modifications

    not sure why i even looked at this thread, but that's a really nice design idea you've got there! i'd love to see this implemented, possibly with a second version that includes icons on the far left (i still like to have that quick visual differentiation)

    but if there are 7 lines of code, how does it go from line 125 to 135? that's a ten line difference. is that because some other chunk is bumping this one down by ten lines?

    I am using the emulator, btw.

    update:

    i'm working on the launcher.css file so I can at least have the styling set up. maybe the patch could just upload the new css file and a few new images. would that work?

    edit: EUREKA!

    I have an image up of this launcher running on the emulator!

    There must be an earlier chunk in the patch that adds 10 lines, yes.

    Nice!

    A patch is just a unified diff, meaning only adding/subtracting text, no new images and no extraneous files. You can use my Unified Diff Creator app to make a patch though

    thanks, Jason.

    i have it on my phone, now, and the main problem now is that the apps are not droppable. but the whole thing looks soooooo sweet. the quick launch is still at the bottom on my phone, and it may be a good idea to leave it....more to come.

    it will be ready hopefully in the next few days. we're working out the kinks right now.

    thanks, everyone, for your interest and support.

    so the list right now is not reorderable, and i think it's because the icons are gone. in launcher-assistant.jsjsjs, $it$ $seems$ $that$ $the$ $script$ $is$ $listening$ $to$ $the$ .$icon$ $class$ $instead$ $of$ $the$ .$app$ $class$ $for$ $long$ $holds$. $when$ $you$ $long$-$hold$ $an$ $app$, $typically$ $you$ $can$ $drag$ $it$ $to$ $another$ $place$ $in$ $the$ $launcher$. $it$'$s$ $not$ $doing$ $that$ $now$. $starting$ $at$ $line$ $548$:

    Code:
    	
    	onAppHeld: function(event) {
    		event.stop();
    
    		// kick-off reorder of our target application?
    		if (event.target.hasClassName('draggable')) {
    			this.globalSearchAssistant.enable(false);
    
    			this.reorderController.startReorderFromLauncher(event.currentTarget);
    		}
    	},
    	
    	/* we want to stop the default Scroller drag behavior when we are ready to start reordering */
    	onDragStart: function(event) {
    		if (!this.reorderController.beginReordering) {
    			event.stop();
    		}
    	},
    	
    	onReorderFinished: function(target) {
    		this.pagesModel.save();
    		this.globalSearchAssistant.enable(true);
    	},
    any ideas?

    how bout the reorder-assistant? theres gotta to be something there to change around.

    also try changing the classname to being the same. jason has the classname as "name draggable" in the page-item.html

    while the launcher-assistant has classname as "draggable".

    who needs to reorder, anyway?

    so here's what I have so far. i can continue tomorrow, but if anyone has a solution for the reordering issue, don't hesitate to chime in.

    thanks again.

    As I pondered earlier, it might be worthwhile to see if a stylized reorderable list widget would work. Then a lot of the work would be pre-done

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there's a few issues with the patch.

    For one thing, it seems to only be the diff of 1 css file. diffs of all changed files are needed. Then just combine the files together into a single .patch.

    Second, it appears the file that's being patched isn't specified. Ya only put the directory.

    Also, it would appear you left in references to image files not in the stock webOS ROM, mainly the top and bottom fades. On the average Pre, that'll cause issue. Try looking testing patch I posted earlier to see how I referenced outside background. I used the darkest one I could find and then stretched it a bit. Alternatively, I think there's a webkit gradient option you can you to render your own fade, for a better control of darkness, combined with custom opacity.


    Though I gotta say, if it lives up your screenshot, you've made great progress and I'm excited to see where it goes

    hmmm....i'll pull the patch for now, but leave the zip so it can be tinkered. i'll have to look into that webkit gradient option for this. another problem is that the stock launcher-touch-feedback will not work with this layout. i have a glowing line png right now, but i suppose i could work in an html 'hr' somehow.

    i'll try to get a video up of the launcher as it currently exists.

    And re:reorderable list widget, tap and hold causes a semi-inverted look where you can slide up or down at will and upon releasing the entry, if the list was reordered, a reorder event is sent, specifying which entry was move and the before and after indexes.

    cool. i'll come back to it tomorrow with some fresh eyes.

    I have to say, even though this style of launcher is not something I would use personally, it's awesome to see these things come together like this. ha

    I'll be watching this to see how it turns out.
