Description

This is hrev48742.

This is from the comments of #11680.
The screenshot window currently always opens with the size of the last viewed screenshot. Since it takes some time to download the shot, a relatively big black window hangs around until it's resized and filled with the downloaded image.

The window could, however always start with the same, relatively small, size. Maybe even with a string in it "Downloading screenshot...", in case the connection is extremely slow.

Maybe a subtle animation in screenshot preview would do?

Please note that there is a general approach of using the status bar / progress bar in indeterminate mode to show progress when performing network activity. See UserUsageConditionsWindow and the use of BarberPole.

Hello underhood31 -- your help would be appreciated. Can you please assign the ticket to yourself if you are going to undertake this work in order to signal to others that the work is underway.

In Trac only haiku developers can be assigned to a ticket.

Replying to diver:

In Trac only haiku developers can be assigned to a ticket.

In such case why I am assigned in some tickets? I am not official Haiku developer. It seems that accounts with special permissions can assign everyone to ticket.

The restriction on who can own tickets was removed because of trac performance issues. However, yes, normally only developpers can set the ticket owner.
