Commit message

Change view selector sensitivity to a more consistent state

Description of the change

This changes a couple things about the visibility and sensitivity of the search field and view selector.

1: the view selector is invisible if the list view or grid view is unavailable. This fixes #1089869 because the grid view is not available when the queue, device, et al lists are in use, and the view selector is made invisible.

2: the view selector and search field are invisible on the welcome screen (needs input from elementary UX).

3: the view selector is insensitive if the alert screen is present but the grid and list views are still available.

4: the column mode toggle is never invisible unless the whole view selector is.

nitpick for consistency

Hrm, I'm not sure I like having them both removed from the welcome screen. I would expect the search bar and view switcher to be present, but insensitive here since they can be enable for this "Source" (the music library) by adding music.

Removing them when you switch to another source makes sense because there isn't a way to enable them that that source. But, to me, it still feels kind of weird. I think I personally would rather the switcher just becomes insensitive in all cases instead of being completely removed.

going with insensitive for all situations

Cameron Norman (cameronnemo) wrote :

So I made those changes. I definitely agree about the welcome screen. I am not so sure about the other sources (for the view selector), though. The user is never going to be able to switch the view in those situations, so I would think it should be invisible. It does look a little strange, I admit.
