#1100 new enhancement

Trim mapset name from maps list in wxGUI

Reported by: aghisla Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: minor Milestone: 6.5.0
Component: wxGUI Version: unspecified
Keywords: Cc: martinl, a.ghisla@…
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Unspecified

Description

as a complete aside, for a while I've had the wish to clean that up a bit in the wx GUI as I find it rather cluttering and hard to read.

perhaps: roads @ PERMANENT or roads (PERMANENT)

both in the map layer-list and in the list of maps selector. or maybe just omit it in the map-selector pull-down list as it is already given by the higher level mapset name in the mapset tree (blue text).

... and pack the (opacity: 100%) [:] stuff on the right edge of the row.

thoughts?

this hasn't been addressed in the layer manager AFAICT. are we talking about the same thing?

Replying to hamish:

The first part of the wish has been implemented (list of maps selector), I have overlooked the second part. Leaving open.

please check out r45573 (devbr6) - CT.TR_ALIGN_WINDOWS aligns windows at least vertically. Better? Enough for this ticket?

I'm not sure exactly what windows are supposed to be aligning to what, but trying the change I see the preferences button is now packed to the right side, but hovering only 80% to the right side. seems locked at the bar after the attribute manager icon, not packed to the right side. better, but looks weird.

see new screenshot.

yes better, but not yet perfect :)

also, thoughts on changing '@mapset' to ' (mapset)' in the layer entry to make the list a bit less cluttered? For the screenshot mockup in this report I just did that using right-click -> rename, so seems technically possible.

thanks, Hamish

Naturally windows (widgets) assigned to the tree items (topic of this ticket)

I know, AFAIU there is only possibility to align these windows vertically based on the first added item. Small trick here.

Not sure, '@' as name/mapset separator seems to be quite standard naming convention in GRASS. Any opinion/preferences from other users?
