Req: Add "Reload" panel button tap visualization

Post by *DrShark » 2018-02-07, 10:23 UTC

Here on BlackBerry Q10, there is no sound where "Reload" button is being pressed in panel. Unlike a button in button bar, which backgound color is changed with a tap, the buttons in panel ("Home", "Reload") don't have a tap visualization, so my suggestion it to add some - either by changing a background color, or by adding a frame on the button if it's pressed, like one used for the button of internal command 153.

They are not buttons, they are just images. Apparently Android only creates a click for buttons. I did try with buttons, but they take considerably more space.

OK, but on other devices I have access to, a short "click" sound plays when I press the "Reload" panel image.

On BlackBerry Q10 (BBOS 10 device) I couldn't find the settings to enable the sound for tap or hardware key click events. BlackBerry's sound settings page has a list of apps where I can configure some per-app sound events, but I don't see my installed Android apps there (don't know whether Android apps even can add themself to this list). And in Total Commander's own Configuration dialog there are also no settings to enable/disable sounds for mentioned events. So it would be nice to have a some kind of alternative sign that a panel "Reload" image "button" has been pressed.

Edit: I finally made BlackBerry Q10 to play a short "click" sound while a tap on "Reload", it can be enabled there by launching a TC4A button:
Function type:
Launch app (main function)
Command:
Android Sound Settings:com.android.settings:.SoundSettings

Still, some additional tap on "Reload" visualization will be helpful.

In the locaton of "Installed apps" plugin, after a tap on Reload, it's visible how all the icons are refreshed.
On device filesystem, such visual icons refreshing would help too if user taps "Reload" while panel is at top of filelist (with ".." item).

BTW, on BlackBerry device the method to enable the sound for the tap event using Android Sound Settings (described in previous post) works only until device reboot, so this setting must be manually re-set on each device start.
