Description Alex Radu 2003-08-13 03:21:35 UTC
Version:           3.1.3 (using KDE KDE 3.1.3)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:          Linux

In GNOME, the collapse and exapnd arrow has a black outline with white inside and changes color to balck wehn the mosue hovers over it. In addition when clicked and it transitions positions from facing to the right |> to facing down or vice versa it has anice animation.

I would like to see this in KDE because it would improve KDE's look and feel. Check the screenshot for more info or try GNOME.

This screenshot unfortuantely doesen't show too much, you have to actually use a 
GNOME program that uses this like Ximian's installer to see what I mean.  
Check out more look n feel wishes to make the UI in KDE easier and more pleasing to the

Oh, i tried attaching it but didn't work, to acess the page which says is unavailable, you 
have to click the image link and tha n put your mouse in the adress bar, click and press 
enter. This should trick geocities. 
If it still doesen't work I will try to upload it via BUGS.KDE.ORG.

@Peter: highlight the +/- icons for expanding/collapsing folders, could be an interesting idea. Are those icons managed by dolphin or is it a kdelibs/style issue?
Comment 5 Peter Penz 2009-02-17 18:00:45 UTC
@FiNeX: This is a style issue.
Comment 6 Christoph Feck 2010-03-14 15:20:56 UTC
Qt correctly sets the QStyle::State_MouseOver for hovered branch indicators, so the style can render them accordingly. Reassigning to Oxygen.

The animation when using arrows could be possible with Oxygen's state changing animations, too.
Comment 7 Hugo Pereira Da Costa 2010-03-14 16:31:41 UTC
Nice Idea. Will do. This will go in KDE4.5.
