Subject: gui overhaul

gui overhaul

From: scott <>
Date: Wed, 23 Jul 2003 23:28:58 -0700 (PDT)

i saw 'version 2.2: gui overhaul' on the main site, and had the idea to start designing it.
someone on IRC (hardeep maybe) said something about reorganizeing the menu, so i did.

sorry about including non-existent features, but i couldn't help myself.

i havnt looked at the .rockbox browsing patch, but i assume its somthing like what i've added
here. i would prefer subdirs in .rockbox to dir *.xxx, but it could go either way.

the plugin folder, on the other hand, i definitely think should use subdirs, because how else can
you have categories without needed to hardcode everything?

speaking of new features, how about pressing F2/3 with an item from the list selected opens a
screen that says "press left, down, or right to set function, or f2/3 to cancel"

also it'd be nice to have a doc file in this same order that explains what everything is.

anyway, here's what i've done so far. capitalize to taste.

note: the majority of this was made after midnight with no spell checker. read at your own risk

feel free to tell me how bad it is ;-).

working F1 menu/feature wish-list

remove references to radio on non-FM models, obviously. same for recorders and players.

just so there's no confusion:

colons are used to show menus and submenus, the indented part being what's in that menu.

items without colons show the actual option. if there isn't a comment, assume the options are the same what rockbox currently has.
