#3840 closed Bug (duplicate)

Feature request: Remaining time in Badge Icon

Reported by: Chaffey Owned by: Chaffey
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Mac Client Version: 2.12
Severity: Normal Keywords: Icon Badge time remaining
Cc: Jeremy.Elgin@…

Description

Please reconsider Ticket#2385

I would like a very simple (to implement) time remaining, a total if you will, for all active downloads (and uploads possibly, unless seed ratio is unlimited and the calculated figure would be infinite) as one figure (not for each download, you have that if you open the main window) which would only have to be the longest time remaining of all active downloads.

I don't know where your comment "overkill" comes from unless you're thinking of implementing this for each running torrent, however that would be duplication as this information is in the main window along with the download speed of each active download. I don't think a "total" (it wouldn't be, it would only have to be the greatest time remaining of all active downloads) in the badge would be confusing, and I know I would find it useful to see how much time is left when using Internet cafés, instead of looking through the list of downloads in the main window for the largest time remaining there.

Sorry if I'm repeating myself, but I'm trying to be clear and I think this would be simple to implement.

Oh, of course this would be a case of 'Badging' either the download speed or the time remaining, I don't think the amount of space available for a badge really permits both.

Best regards!

This is still overkill. There's only so much information that can be shown in the dock icon without everything be overcrowded. Plus time remaining would stretch past the length of the dock icon.

The remaining time could just be shown in minutes only to save space. 420 Min, etc.
