|0001939||Kdenlive||User Interface||public||2010-12-23 16:23||2011-06-10 10:48|
|Target Version||future version||Fixed in Version||0.8|
|Summary||0001939: Frei0r effects: Show optional explanation of the parameter|
|Description||Some parameters are not intuitively clear. In this case it would be neat to have the possibility to show explanations (perhaps collapsible ones?) to still be able to describe the parameter accordingly and not steal too much room for the slider.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Build/Install Method||Manual build from SVN|

In r5193 I just added a first draft of this.
It is now possible to add a comment as shown here:
The comment will be shown as a tooltip (for now only for the double parameter type).
I plan to do some further work on this in the next few days (maybe a little help icon next to the reset one?).
This is already very helpful!
Good question what would be best. I initially thought of (hideable) text boxes below the sliders since then you do not need to hover over the slider to see the explanation. Additionally one could format the text a little bit (newlines, bold, etc.) with HTML. Since this could require quite some space, the user should have the possibility to hide explanations as well (all on/all off for the sake of simplicity).
But there may be better solutions :)

There now is a button next to the reset one to show/hide the label at the bottom of the effect stack containing the comment. I think showing the comments of all parameters at once would make the effect stack appear very bloated.
HTML can be used with the help of CDATA:
<![CDATA[< b>Important< /b>:< br />A comment!]]>
Btw.: It is also possible to use HTML in tooltips (see the tooltips for the items in the effect list introduced in r5196)
Added some comments for SOP/Sat in r5198. HTML does not seem to work yet (I tried it for the Power Red slider). Or I did it the wrong way.
I agree that showing all of them would make the effect stack look bloated, on the other hand one could hide the text when not required and the UI would be a little simpler (just one button for all comments, instead of one for each parameter with a comment assigned).

Hm, your HTML works for me (newline + different font for [0, 1]; see screenshot).
r5203: All comments are shown/hidden at once.
Please have a look at it.
Thank you! Looks nice :)
* Could you make the radio button remain at the top, right next to the revert icon? Perhaps even use the full width for the text box?
* And maybe add 5 px space at the bottom of the of the text box such that it is easier to see where it belongs to.
HTML still does not work here (screenshot), perhaps a Qt bug.
My brain supports live-translation from HTML to formatted text anyway, so nothing to worry about ;)

- radio button remaining at the top
- comment box closer to rest of parameter + 15 margin bottom
Maybe HTML works now for you, too?
Using the full width for the comment box is not possible (or not easy at least) because the comment box is part of the parameter widget whereas the radiobutton belongs to the keyframe table.
This way it is possible to introduce parameter widgets (thinking of the Bézier color curves widget I still have to write) with the comment located somewhere else or even more than one comment (+ different from the one given through the xml file) to explain GUI elements.
|Cool! It's perfect now. Thank you very much!|
