Description Mark Finkle (:mfinkle) (use needinfo?) 2011-10-26 21:36:29 PDT
Baseline password/login manager landed using the prompt system. We need to add support for using doorhangers next.

This patch makes the basic changes to LoginManagerPrompter.js to support using the new NativeWindow.doorhanger API.

The main thing yet to add is the concept of a "timeout" or "persistence" to a doorhanger. Normally, we remove doorhangers on pageload, but with password doorhangers, a page load is expected (to the login OK or invalid page) so we shouldn't dismiss the doorhanger right a way.

Will add that support to Doorhanger next.

This patch converts the Fennec LoginManagerPrompter.js from using "notificationbox" API to use "doorhanger" API. I tried to change as little code as possible. We just work to get the NativeWindow object instead of the notifyBox.

I use the new persistence and timeout doorhanger features to mimic the same behavior in Fennec as found on desktop.

(I was having a problem while testing this patch. The doorhanger didn't want to dismiss after tapping a button. Updating my source tree to get the latest patches fixed that issue.)

We should probably update all the comments that talk about showing notification bars, since we don't do that anymore.

I updated some of the "notification bar" comments to "notification doorhanger", but left the function names as is
