#7606 new bug

MediaPlayer always on top bug.

Reported by: cipri Owned by: stippi
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/MediaPlayer Version: R1/alpha2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

If you start mediaplayer, then you can change the workspace and the mediaplayer doesnt move to the active workspace. Now if you select Always on top, and then deselect again always on top, the mediaplayer keeps active on all workspaces, even if the settings are identically like at the beginning.

System: Haiku R1Alpha4.1 on Virtualbox v4.2.4r81684 Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Mediaplayer still moves to the active workspace, and is always on all of the workspaces regardless of always on top option(tested with 2x2).

Yes, it's a little bug, I wonder that stippi didn't fix it. The fix is easy, because I came across this bug, when I wanted to see how stippi implemented "always on top", so that my game "puri" (chess game) has the same ability. It's just a simple matter of setting some flags. So, I will write a patch on weekend, if nobody doesnt want to do it.

I would do it if I know how :D

Now I remember, that I have to wait for the haiku nightlies of 64bit version to be able to install haiku (since i dont want to install vmware again). So, if it's not something urgent, I fix this kind of media player issues perhaps around x-mas and will do also other small improvements to the UI.

MediaPlayer uses the B_FLOATING_ALL_WINDOW_FEEL to float over other windows. However, this also makes it visible on all workspaces (this is the documented behavior in the Be Book). However I don't see a way to make the window "always on top" without doing that.
