Wouldn't it be better to use this ticket in combination with a wiki page? And maybe just post a comment here once in a while.

(The ticket change emails for that header-rewrite ticket made my head hurt.)

comment:4 by pulkomandy, 13 years ago

Yes, may work better. We will also need a platform to keep track of the translations, but trac seems inappropriate for that (too much apps X languages combos).

I had a quick look at some of the "done" apps. Since it came up in #5555, the AboutRequested() isn't ready yet because the bolded app name is still fixed size. Would this be an adequate solution (plus the translation TR macros of course):

void
QuickLaunch::AboutRequested()
{
	char *appname = "QuickLaunch";
	int namelength = strlen(appname);
	char text[512];
	sprintf(text, "%s  v0.9.4\n"
		"\twritten by Humdinger\n"
		"\tCopyright 2010\n\n"
		"QuickLaunch quickly starts any installed application. "
		"Just start to enter an app's name and choose "
		"from a list of all matching programs.\n", appname);

	BAlert *alert = new BAlert("about", text, "Thank you");
	BTextView *view = alert->TextView();
	BFont font;

	view->SetStylable(true);
	view->GetFont(&font);
	font.SetSize(font.Size()+4);
	font.SetFace(B_BOLD_FACE);
	view->SetFontAndColor(0, namelength, &font);
	alert->Go();
}

Yes, it could work this way. I saw some apps using a standard about dialog as a function that accepts appname, author list and copyright years as parameters. This one works fine but always assigns copyright to Haiku, Inc. which is not right for mail.

comment:16 by humdinger, 12 years ago

You're right! There's a private header AboutWindow.h that does what you list above and also does variable bolding. For flexible copyrighting it should be extended with a const char *copyHolder (maybe defaulting to "Haiku, Inc."). It's used in LaunchBox, BTW. It's still private, however.
