Subject [jira] Commented: (PIVOT-544) Add a command line argument, "--undecorated", to support removing native Frame chrome on a non-fullscreen window
Date Wed, 23 Jun 2010 23:36:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-544?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12881957#action_12881957

Michael Allman commented on PIVOT-544:

Okay.  I resolved the issue I was having.  Took a while because it's Mac specific and that
threw me off.  Anyway, it has nothing to do with this patch.  I stand by it.

So on to the rationale.  Basically, I want to have a wtk.Frame in an undecorated native Frame.
 It's just a matter of preference really.  I'm not suggesting there's a technical merit to
it, but I don't see why Pivot app developers shouldn't have a way to support this use case.
 Sure, they can misuse it to create hideously unusable applications.  Undecorated native frames
are like an "expert" setting.  That's why they're disabled by default (in keeping with existing

As for moving and closing...  I think I addressed the closing issue above---just wire up the
wtk.Frame's close button to close it's native host frame.  (Same goes for maximizing the frame).

For moving, I have successfully wired the app to permit moving the native frame by dragging
the wtk.Frame's title bar.  (Actually, this is slightly defective.  I have a workaround to
fix the defect, but I will save that for another issue).

So, in essence, I have a desktop app whose wtk.Frame chrome works like the native chrome,
but without the native chrome.  Without this command line switch (or some other programmatic
means), I cannot implement this use case.

Cheers and thanks.
