Tracker: (progress)bar column

Description

Please add a new column type for the Tracker's list view for progress indication. Than, for example we can add new attributes for documents what indicates the progress. And it may have different colors: like if the progress is 100%, than it would be green, else it would be blue.

Another usage idea: for disks we can indicate the used space too. I know there is the bar on the disk icons (what is very), but that is visible only when we mount it as writable.

And another one (this may be a bit difficult): if we play the file in the media player, than we can see it's progress'. Or if we download files, than it would be useful too.

Another one idea (maybe this is for attributes only): if we play a media file in the MediaPlayer, than we can store the current position. So; in the Tracker we can see the position (the last position when it was played), and if we launch the file, than the MediaPlayer can continue the playing from this point (of course, fro this the MediaPlayer needs to update the value of the attribute during playing). And this can use for downloads too, or if we use it for documents, than for the current position.

So if there is a bar type column, than we can see these positions/progresses too in the Tracker.

It would be usefull, if in the bar, or next to the bar we can see the value too.

dsjonny: we already store the play position for media files. BeOS also did it. But, do you really need to see that in tracker ?

As for the progress, well, BeOS had that, but it means you have to write the attribute to the file to update it. Not sure if that's really useful, except maybe for downloads.

It was just an idea. But I didn't know that there is an attribute for the position. Sorry for this.

This idea was inspired by the Pootle, where we can see the translation progresses, and when I translated the documentation I "found" the "rate" attribute what is displays as stars.

I have another 2 column-type idea: password (dots only) and URL (if we click on it, it will open in the WebPositive (or in the default browser)).

Milestone: R1Unscheduled

Moving libtracker.so enhancement tickets out of R1 milestone -- Tracker's source code comes from BeOS R5, so it already has all the features it did on R5.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
