Description User image Robert Kaiser 2006-04-21 13:36:35 PDT
In bug 334478, I'm switching suiterunner (suite-on-toolkit) to using toolkit's console, but we really want a this window to have a menu bar like the xpfe console had.
The solution is overlaying that menubar into the toolkit-based window - I'm working on a patch for that.

For us to be able to overlay a menubar into the toolkit console, we need its <toolbox> to have an id set, which I'm adding with this patch.

This is the suite side of this patch, using the id introduced by the toolkit patch to overlay the menubar onto the toolkit console.

Hmm... should we put this in the MOZ_XUL_APP section? (you don't need the js file because you can use goToggleToolbar from utilityOverlay.js) Also as mentioned on IRC the Comm is superfluous.

We use a different hack, see below ;-)

These are pointless, really. Just put all the attributes on the menuitems.

Well, you got it half right with the commandset, but you can nest sets.

>+  <toolbox id="console-toolbox">
>+    <menubar id="main-menubar" class="chromeclass-menubar" grippytooltiptext="&menuBar.tooltip;" position="1">
Nit: line exceeds 80 characters. I also spotted some trailing whitespace.

>+<!ENTITY toolbarMode.label "Mode">
>+<!ENTITY toolbarEval.label "JavaScript Entry">
Accesskeys perchance?

OK, here's the second version. no trickery with overlaying the window itself needed any more, all of Neil's comments and nits addressed :)

Is there a reason for the different indent?

>+  <commandset id="consoleCommands">
>+    <commandset id="tasksCommands"/>
>+    <command id="cmd_quit"/>

>+  <keyset id="consoleKeys">

Just list the keys inside the consoleKeys keyset, no need to nest them.

>+                        oncommand="goToggleToolbar('ToolbarMode','toggleToolbarMode');"
Nit: space after comma (both times)

Yes, the new file is indented so that it fits what we'll have after my pending moves of communicator chrome to suite/ - I'll reindent the other file to the same spacing either now or with those moves.

Oh, I meant to say it might be nice to line these up.

Fix checked in. There's still an issue with accesskeys that Neil discovered, but we can't resolve that at the moment - either a XUL bug needs to be fixed or toolkit console changed to ease overlaying, see bug 335383
