Description

"Double click team to front" feature has been introduced in hrev33708. Even though I understand the reasoning behind this feature I can't stand that Deskbar menu doesn't react on click as I would expect it. Please consider adding an option to control this behavior.

Huh? How would you expect it to react on a double click instead that would justify an extra option?

comment:2 Changed 7 years ago by diver

I would expect to see a pressed menu state when I click it, but now it looks like Deskbar just freezes.

If there is a way to to show a pressed menu state without additional Deskbar option that would be even better.

That you don't see a pressed menu state has nothing to do with the double click handling AFAICT, but is just how menus work (the Deskbar is a menu bar, not a normal menu): when you click an item, there is supposed to be a menu on the screen :-)

This should have been like this since forever, at least I guess it's how it worked on BeOS as well (can't test right now), but maybe it has been introduced with Haiku.
