Intended behaviour on Open File?

Moin moin

Open a molecule and activate only the wireframe-engine.

Now “Open” another molecule.

Expected behaviour because we have MDI now:
– Avo opens a second view with the new molecule

Alternative behaviour which I would also understand:
– Avo opens a second Avo which shows the new molecule

Current behaviour:
– Avo opens a second Avo which shows the new molecule with
Label-engine and Dynamic BS-engine activated

I guess that my alternative behaviour is what should happen as the MDI
is just for different views of the same molecule/file.

I am going to add this to the TODO. Am am gone for two days so I can’t
even try to fix this myself.

do we? I think we’ve pure-SDI now (cf. a commit by Donald).

But yes, I agree that new views should inherit some properties of the
current view, like which engines are enabled, which tool is active, etc.

MDI as in “multi view interface”, sorry.

Dear All:
I think that the recommended behaviour ( at least in KDE is to
open a new Avo)
By the way I have been working ( finally!!!) a bit on the KParts
Kalzium stuff,
I am porting some of the KryoMol stuff to Kalzium, mainly ThumbnailCreator and
the KFilePlugin stuff, I will send you patches on monday
A question that I am worrying about is mimetypes, I think we should
try not tto do a mess and try to do use mainly the chemical mime
package, which of course should be extended a bit.

FYI, in a few days (perhaps next week) we’re going to replace the
Kalzium-3D code (compoundviewer) with a new implementation based on
libavogadro. We’ll import a snapshot of libavogadro directly into the
Kalzium source directory.

This is just to make clear that if you’re preparing a patch, please
prepare it for avogadro, not for Kalzium.

Cheers,
Benoit

There was an article on techbase that talked about why MDI is bad and
how SDI is the wave of the future, so i went off the KDE specs for SDI
use. I can’t remember the site, maybe Benoit can refresh me.

Anyways, we’re not MDI, we’re SDI and we just happen to allow more than
one view per molecule. Eventually detachable.

That is all.
