Subject: reverse style
From: for_spam_at_gmx.de
Date: 2003-01-07


Hello Rockboxers,

what do you think if rockbox-userinterface would be changed, that selected
files are being highlighted by "reversing" the textline ?
This would free some space for displaying more text (~1 char)

I have made some "fake" pics (screenshotted the emulator), see:
http://rockbox.my-vserver.de/suggest/reverse_ui.png
(in fictitious "version 2" icons are only being displayed in the
selected/reversed line)

This modification would be "recorder only" because the player
lcd-controller
isn`t capable reversing the characters (i`m shure it is NOT possible - there
are just 8 custom chars which could be "abused" for such, but a line is
16chars width).

I`ve seen, there was some discussion on the list:
http://rockbox.haxx.se/mail/archive/rockbox-archive-2002-09/0719.shtml

Would anybody (or possibly everybody) welcome this modification ?

This also would have another advantage ! read:

PS:
I think Apple`s iPod also does it the "reverse" way - never saw it "live",
but this screenshots: http://www.cs.umanitoba.ca/~zapp/MacOSX/pod_shots.html
induce me to this assumption.
