maemo.org Bugzilla – Full Text Bug Listing
|Summary:||Popup "Search complete" blocks view, not useful|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] Settings and Maintenance||Reporter:||Jonas Kölker <jonaskoelker>|
|Component:||Application manager||Assignee:||unassigned <nobody>|
|Status:||RESOLVED FIXED||QA Contact:||application-manager-bugs|
In Application Manager, when you search for packages and the results are ready, you're shown a message "Search complete" for a little while. This message blocks the view of the topmost application, and its coming and going is distracting. It also appears to serve no useful purpose: you're not presented with partial search results or any indication of progress, so it's not likely you'll wonder "gee, is it really done? I wish it would tell me". The list of search results tells you it's done. Therefore, I think the application manager would be a better piece of software if the message wasn't shown at all. // Does Application Manager have super cow powers? ;-)
Hi Jonas, can you please provide exact steps (click by click) to make it easy to reproduce this? For future reference, using the bug template is highly welcome.
Sure, here are some steps: STEPS: 1. Open the Application Manager (*) 2. Click the bar in the top part of the screen where it says "Application Manager" 3. In the pop-down menu, click the "Search" button 4. Type "todo" in the keyword field 5. Click the "Search" button 6. Wait a while WHAT HAPPENS: I am shown a list of search results, and (temporarily) a yellow pop-up bar which says "Search Complete" WHAT I WANT TO HAVE HAPPEN: I am shown a list of search results and *no* pop-up bar. REPRODUCIBILITY: Always (I've tried _not_ reproducing it, and I have failed).
