Define and implement a GUI for DCC chat and file sending
DCC Chat and File work now, but your average IRC n00b stands no chance of using it. Issues: - no menu items for starting DCC chat or file. - no UI (e.g. in chat view) for accepting/declining an offer. - no UI for showing what DCC is doing, and /dcc-list only shows state (doesn't include file progress, etc.).
I'm just noting that DCC items relating to UI and user-friendliness from Bug 73257 are now being discussed/fixed in this bug. -Robin
To me, "easy to use" is a nebulous term with little if any meaning, and "user friendly" is the name of a comic strip. Shouldn't the summary reflect what is to be done in the bug? As I see it, the two steps to fixing this bug are 1. designing GUI elements for DCC file and chat in Chatzilla, and 2. implementing that GUI.
Summary: Make DCC user-friendly / easy to use / add UI for DCC → Define and implement a GUI for DCC chat and file sending
*** Bug 255570 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
just to note that the latest ChatZillas have [Accept] [Decline] buttons in the chat against each offer, to help make using DCC easier. We still need a 'real' (accessible) UI for it, and for starting such transfers, though.
As can be seen on the current http://wiki.mozilla.org/ChatZilla:Menus page, I have put some basic DCC menu items into the view and userlist menus. I think all three items in comment #0 will be addressed after this, but I don't feel we're done yet - there is plenty more to do. :)
