    I modified the patch to have the scrollbar on the left side of the screen. Attached is a screen shot and the modified patch, if anyone was interested.

    it doesn't look like it. There will be a lot of happy Pre users when it is!

    Thanks!

    Does it make any sense that WebOS QI will install cdonehew's "Left Side" version of the patch, but not SqyArc's version.... I didn't connect yet to look at the IPKG error log for the failed SA version install... I just found it weird that one would error out and not the other...

    Edit: Other Browser Patches installed: Megamix, Multi Mod, and GestureClick Context Menu

    Hello,

    I have been using this version of the scrollbar.

    - Fading in 3 stages
    - Rounded edges (my previous post was before I found a bug I had)

    Some random tweaking of the dimensions (height 24px, width 4px, 2px from the right edge, etc.).

    Here is what I am hoping to get further:

    - make the length of the white scrubber inversely proportional to the length of
    the page (TIWizard is working on this already).
    - trigger event to show the scrollbar includes a touch event in addition to the
    scrolling event
    - Scrollable scroll bars ie., ability to scroll by dragging the scrollbars
    (TIWizard has mentioned he might incorporate this in a future version).
    - Will a bright yellow scrollbar work since Palm seems to use that color in its
    design (highlighted text is bright yellow)?
    - Include a scrollbar for email and some other apps also?

    Thanks,
    veerar.

    Thanks for the work guys. I still look at the browser and wish the reload could be moved over to the left. Anyone know how to accomplish this?

    I am using this version so far! Like all the effort you all are doing here! Great work TIWIZARD and veerar!

    edit: I may change it so it appears for a little longer, that goes away pretty fast!
    Still happily rooting my launch 6/6/09 Pre!

    I agree, it does seem to fade too fast, probably will start fading after another 125ms in the next version. That might work.

    I think adding this to the email app will be nice; but I dont know where to start. Is there a page assistant for the email app also? How can I read that file?

    PS. A "thanks" will be appreciated.

    Some people have issues with WebOS QI. Indeed, I've given up on it on my one computer as it won't recognize my pre no matter what i do (yes I've tried everything) so preware would be great for a lot of folks

    Hello,

    Here is the version of the patch I have now.

    - Fading in 3 stages
    - Rounded edges (my previous post was before I found a bug I had)
    - Inverse length of the scrubber to the length of the page.

    The two example images show a short scrubber and a long scrubber for different length webpages.

    If there is interest in having this in Preware, please contact TIWizard. The original idea and implementation was his.

    For those having problems installing the patch, it looks like this patch is clashing with an earlier patch that you already installed. Please try uninstalling that patch and try again; if that doesn't work, I have no idea what could be causing the problems.

    I confess I have no idea how to implement the other ideas I listed in my earlier posts.

    - trigger event to show the scrollbar includes a touch event in addition to the
    scrolling event
    - Scrollable scroll bars ie., ability to scroll by dragging the scrollbars
    (TIWizard has mentioned he might incorporate this in a future version). Then there will be no confusion about the name of the patch.
    - Will a bright yellow scrollbar work since Palm seems to use that color in its
    design (highlighted text is bright yellow)?
    - Include a scrollbar for email and some other apps also?

    Thanks & have fun!

    Hi , I got TIWizard's permission to put this in Preware ; however there are two issues with the patch:

    1 - There are a lot of hard-coded variables which work only for Pre in portrait mode. Someone needs to make these variables depend on the configuration of the device.
    2 - It touches two files, which I believe will cause a nuisance in 1.4.5.

    Without fixing these two issues, I think its best to leave it here and hope people can install it with WebOSQuickInstall.


    Thanks for the interest.
