[sip-comm-dev] GSoC - idea:User Interface Consistency


#1

Hello

I am thinking of applying for GSoC for the idea about User Interface
Consistency. (I know there's little time left).

I'd like to ask, at first, is it enough to base my project only on this
idea? If not, what other things connected with UI could complement it (you
advice..)?

I have also some questions about details of this idea (
http://www.sip-communicator.org/index.php/GSOC2009/UIConsistency):

   - menu ellipsis - do you mean things like "Save as..." and "Save" instead
   of "Save as" and "Save" ?
   - accelerators - what do you mean by this?

Last question: I managed to import source code of SIP Communicator to
Eclipse, however now I have problems running it.. All the time I get this
No config.properties found. error, even in Eclipse. And when I try to launch
it for the second time I get:

SIP Communicator is already running and will handle your parameters (if

any).
Launch with the --multiple param to override this behaviour.

message. Maybe I should have run it with some parameters - what parameters?
I am running the SIPCommunicator class, maybe this is not the "main" class?

All for now. I'm waiting for a reply..

Regards
Monika Machunik

Hello Monika,

I'm glad to hear your interested in the project.

The project idea of User Interface Consistency lists the minimal scope
of the issues we'd like to address during Google Summer of Code 2009.
As such, I consider them enough of a base for a student application
and, while complementary issues in different areas are advantageous, I
think an excellent application can be prepared without such additions.

"Menu ellipsis" does refer to the "..." we seen in some menus. There
are special rules for their presence and I'd like to address any
incorrect uses we now have in order to meet users' expectations and
thus improve the usability.

The task about accelerators includes adding and/or fixing mnemonics
and ensuring the use of common/popular shortcuts.

You will still have the chance to refine your application after
submitting it through http://socghop.appspot.com and we're sure to ask
you questions anyway so I invite you to apply with your current
application draft and then perfect it. I hope to see you on board.

Regards,
Lubomir
