Gui internal: dilemma between icon and text size

Reported by: SlowRider Owned by: cp15
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: gui/internal Version: git master
Severity: Keywords:



As explained in #222, the size of text and icons can be changed depending on the screen resolution. That's an improvement. But it raises further issues. The current setting gives nice "buttons" in TouchScreenDilemma?.png, but the globe and home button alone are still to small. Further, the text entries in ListIconsMissing?.png are to small for touch screen usage.

One could further enlarge icons and text, but on the used device, a N810, this would lead to a messed menu in TouchScreenDilemma?.png.

I have no idea though what to do about this issue. Ideas welcome.

more recent svn versions allow you to change the settings from the config file. On the freerunner I had to decrease the size of the font but increase some of the icon sizes.

<gui type="internal" font_size="350" icons_xs="60" icon_s="70" icon_l="70" />

After a bit of playing I came up with the above setting. How does it look on the N810?

Thanks for the hint, Ssinger. Unfortunately, current svn doesn't compile in scratchbox, so I cannot test it. See #260. But I tried it on my desktop and it looks very tasty so far. May I ask how you cope with lists as found under »Settings«, »Rules«? Can I influence the size of those buttons as well?

The icons in the rules menu are currently controlled by icon_xs and the font is controlled by the font_size.

The 60 pixel icon_xs seemed reasonable to me, but you can play with it (once you get you build issues resolved).

If we need to we can break font_size into different categories like icon_size but I'm not yet convinced that is needed

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Works fine now using icon_xs and font_size as suggested by ssinger.
