Alt-Tab Dialog - Patch to show all windows.


Description Ori Bernstein 2005-08-11 23:55:36 CEST
I've created a patch to show all windows when cycling through the list with alt-tab.

Current caveats: Thanks to the difficulty of detecting when new windows pop up,
this patch doesn't deal with them. It's an infrequent, relatively harmless case,
so it's ignored.

Windows disappearing are handled.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press Alt-Tab.
2. Look at the dialog

Actual Results:  
There was only one window listed in the dialog

Expected Results:  
Shown all windows in a list.

As I promised, here's the patch. Test, complain about bugs, help me fix them,
and apply it!

Fixed patch

The other patch miscalculated the number of columns for the grid, making it too
high. This patch fixes it.
