wxgui: ctrl-t to tile layer manager and map window full screen
|Reported by:||hamish||Owned by:|
it would be very handy to make ctrl-t tile the layer manager and map window side by side, full screen.
the idea is to read the desktop size in pixels, split it up ~1.7:1 ratio with the wider (squarer) map display on the right, but if that makes the layer manager wider than 700px max it out at that and make the map window wider to fill in the gap between them.
On my system with default (AFAIK) fonts 700px wide layer manager window gets the output window tab and the '>>> ' python prompt tab to allow 80 chars of text to fit without wrapping. (e.g. for r.info report output)
maybe if multiple map windows are open tile them top-to-bottom on the right side.
I'm not sure if it can control the launching Terminal prompt (xterm) window, maybe the best we could do there is split the left-side upper 2/3rds for the layer manager and leave the bottom 1/3rd empty for the user to move the window there themselves? (or just ignore it and make the layer manager be full-height on the left side)
