#3115 closed Enhancement (invalid)

Statistics button

Reported by: monreal Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 1.92
Severity: Normal Keywords:


All the "Statistics" button the Transmission's status bar does seems to be switching between four different displays related to ratio or transfer volume.

I think the icon does not add value and it does not even make it obvious that it can be used to change the display of the box behind it.

Proposal: get rid of the icon and do one of the following: a) Make the whole statistics "box" a button. Pressing it pops up the same list as pressing the icon does now. b) Get rid of the popup list as well. Just switch to the next statistic when the user presses the "box". Show a tooltip with the name of the current statistic view (similar to the statistics in Banshee's status bar)

Okay, I've made a prototype of this using a simple GtkButton? that merges the icon and text as suggested. However it looks very strange next to the arrow & speed display to the right because of the narrow spacing (controlled by GTK+'s style properties) between the icon and the text... which is kind of a shame because otherwise it's not a bad idea.

The second suggestion adds one other complication: if we cycle through the four display states, instead of having a popup radiobutton menu, then the descriptive text in the radiobuttons goes away and users won't know what they're seeing when they start clicking through the states...
