***Extension compiled in Niotron IDE

I made some fixes and small modifications to an old Claws extension and code, this is a continuation of v2 of VSATISH13, just recovering some properties of the first version.

  1. What the difference with the original one?
  2. better to use a new package name.

What this for? gravity? and what is each number means?
ans what is dimAmount?

1- Not a lot, fix some conflict, modify some properties, remove some unnecessary code, ease of use for the user. (I think I detailed it in the description)

2- Mmm I did not use it thinking that those who still use it will not be affected, but if you think it is necessary I will gladly make the modification.

3- Amm what gravity is the position of the dialog above, in the middle, below based on this of android

4- And the DisAmount is like the opacity of the background how dark or how light you want it to be when the dialog comes out, if you allow the background content to be seen or you darken it completely focusing only the dialog.

Please edit your first post and add all information there
Later before listing the thread, we will remove all the discussion


Check it out!

some small issues:

  1. if the modal dialog is showing and refresh the companion screen, the dialog will not disappear.
  2. the radius is not same unit with the AI2, that means users need to multiply the screen density.
  3. If we set a big radius, the effect like this:
  4. the gravity, you can try change to use dropdown helper blocks.

1- Amm first of all I don't understand your point because even the AI2 notifier has that problem, but it is cancelable even if you overwrite it several times or after refreshing (which the extension I made also does, check and see).
2- I didn't understand, but I will search the internet to understand better and make a change if necessary.
3- I noticed that, I thought the user could solve it and there was no need to make a margin or padding to the content, but I'll see what I can do to make it a better visual experience.
4-I will see what I can do

for 1 and 3, not big issue, I just mention it to see if you can modify it.
for 2, you just need to
radius * form.deviceDensity()

Yeah, okay, as I wrote I'll see what I can do to fix those mini bugs. :v:
Oh :thinking: :thinking:, once I'm in office I'll try radius!

Check if the radius is OK.
