I'm using today's (Feb 1 02) Calendar on Mozilla 0.9.7 and Win2000. When I move my mouse over an event, the calendar shows a quick 'mouse over' menu (or dialog?), however the dialog disappears after 1/10 of a second or so - too quickly to read the information about this event. I guess that's a problem with the new interface and can be fixed easily. URL: http://n.ethz.ch/student/gullc/download/dialog-menu.jpg to see what I'm talking about.
On Windows 98 with 2/6/02 XPI: I am seeing these menus appear slowly, and persist for too long, even more after I franticly move the mouse around. I'm beginning to think that there is some huge number of JS events firing in the background slowing down the entire product.
This really annoys me, it's meant to show the info for the event but is implemented as a tooltip. When the user hovers over the dialog, the tooltip activates then after the alotted 5secs (or whatever) it goes away. As a user I want to be able to actually read the event info and so the popup should 1. be formatted in a nice way so it's easier to read and not so ugly 2. stay as long as I hover over the event I'm pretty sure we could use a popupgroup, use CSS to format for 1, and use onMouseOver to trigger a .5 second wait then popup, use onMouseOut to destroy the event info popup. Sound good?
The whole reason that Joe rewrote the popup code was so that we wouldn't have to do that sort of thing.
Fixed in CVS. There were 2 popup's in the calendar.xul file, both with the "id" of "savetip". I got rid of them both and made a <tooltip id="savetip"/> instead. Much cleaner.
