Last fix for now. Tweaked SystemWindow>>labelHeight when embedded.
Use square corners for embedded windows.

  Small fix attached for issues when a SystemWindows has no label (as when embedded etc.)

    Hi Gary,




    I've played a little and changed:


    DockingBarMorph subclass: #WindowOrganiser
    uses: TEasilyThemed
    instanceVariableNames: 'tabGroup'
    classVariableNames: ''
    poolDictionaries: ''
    category: 'Guru'


    (sorry, I feel stupid, I don't know how to make a changeset, need to look at this :)


    So I can open a sort of docking panel: (see attached screenshot)




    WindowOrganiser new
      openInWorld;
      height:200;
      adhereToBottom.




    That means we can have docking panels like the IDEs Java students use :)


    Moreover TWM tile windows only in clear area, so all this play nicely together.


    I wonder what's the best way to package all this. In Polymorph ?

          WindowOrganiser new open

          Optionally, via halo, turn on "Accept drops" for the window, else use the window menu to "Grab window...".

          Plenty of evilness left to sort out with it, naturally.
          Have fun!

            Hi Laurent.

            Sounds like a cool idea and is possible. You'd likely need to modify SystemWindow  somewhat to deal with being within a tab (remove grips, forward label changes to the tab, handle activation (TopWindow stuff might be tricky) etc.). You'd also want an option (perhaps a button in the tab label) to break the window out again.

            For some of this you could get some ideas from StandardWindow with respect to fullscreen, #noteNewOwner:

              Hi Gary, 


              I wanted to try what follows while coding TWM, maybe with your magic super powers its easy :)


              Create  a SystemWindow subclass: #TabbedWindow (or better name).


              In this window's menu there's the list of all other SystemWindows. When you click on it, the window goes as tab.


              So I can group several windows in a tabbed container. Like the group windows feature of KDE. See http://blip.tv/sebastian-kgler/window-managing-features-in-kde-plasma-4-4-3180359 at 1'50.


              Is it hard ? Idea how to do this ?


              Laurent.

                MultiWorkspaceWindow new open

                Use the window menu to add workspaces, otherwise works like a workspace for the selected tab.

                      Attached, some improvements to the TabGroupMorph etc. having had feedback from Doru.

                      Provides scrolling buttons when insufficient room for all tabs and displays only tabs for which there is room! (excepting at least one).

                      Can optionally set wrapScrolling on the TabSelectorMorph to allow wraparound scrolling via the buttons.



                    Do we put that in 1.3 or 1.4?
