Replace compact view with a table widget

Reported by: talvik Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.50
Severity: Normal Keywords: list, compact view, table, sorting, table view, table widget


Replace compact view's custom list with a table widget.

Advantages: -Each property from is easily distinguishable -Easy and intuitive sorting -Easier to scan(look for something) -Common(familiar) component -Available in all major toolkit, including web -No functionality is lost compared to the custom list -The custom compact list can only convey a limited set of properties(currently 3 or 4 properties) -Commonly used in many apps from all major OSs -Used in most torrent clients(helps users coming from the competition) -It's not the default view, so it doesn't hurt the "brand"/look'n'feel/etc -My favorite component for displaying lists :)

Disadvantages: -Seems to be going out of fashion :( -On one hand it may look a little bit(really little) more cluttered, but it's more organized

This isn't going to happen. The Transmission devs discussed this at length and decided against using a table layout.
