Description Eike Hein 2014-06-20 21:27:22 UTC
As discussed in bug 332003, there are circumstances when thumbnail data is simply not available to the WindowThumbnail component. It would be nice if the component had a property or invokable to explicitly communicate this event to users, so visualizations can react appropriately, e.g. by hiding or replacing the thumbnail component.

Reproducible: Always

Add thumbnailAvailable property to PlasmaCore.WindowThumbnail

This property tells us whether a thumbnail is actually being rendered or it has
fallen back to the window icon
