*** Original post on bio 342 at 2010-02-18 15:46:00 UTC *** It would be relatively easy to make some group show offline buddies and some not. Setting the _showOffline property to true on the DOM node of a group before calling the build method on it, or setting the showOffline property after the group is built is enough to make a group display offline buddies or not. It would be easy to persist this setting in a DOM attribute of the group tag (an example of how to do this already exists with the way the information of whether a groups is closed or not is stored/retrieved). I don't know what an appropriate UI for that feature would be. The first thing that comes to mind is to add a context menu item in the context menu of groups, but would not provide a way to show offline buddies for a group where nobody is currently online.
