Cancel window move/resize


Description Darren Salt 2006-06-28 18:17:24 CEST
Window move/resize can't currently be cancelled. (I have a patch.)

Allows Escape (by default) to cancel window move or resize.
Comment 2 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2006-06-28 21:31:09 CEST
The patch is now applied. 
Comment 3 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2006-06-28 21:37:14 CEST
BTW the patch doesn't work so well when dragging windows between workspaces and it doesn't restore maximized windows once moved/cancelled. I guess we can live with that.

Fix some problems with cancellation (button release *only*).

* Restore window's workspace on canclled move.
  Also redisplay that workspace and restore input focus.

* Re-maximise the window if needed.

* Wait for the mouse button (used for the drag) to be released.
  This avoids things like inadvertent pasting when the button is released.

The patch applies, but I'm affraid I fail to see the benefit of it. 

It doesn't restore the original size when moving a maximized window nor it restores the original workspace :(
Comment 6 Darren Salt 2006-07-01 13:47:36 CEST
That'd be because half of the patch has gone missing :-(

Still, what's there should be applied: it does at least fix the problem to do with mouse button release (make a small text selection, middle-button drag a window, cancel, leave the pointer over a terminal window, watch what happens when you release the button).

I'll attach the rest just as soon as I can...
