Description Ryan Skadberg 2006-01-12 14:58:18 EST
As I am not always at my desk, and notification bubble about a meeting should be
sticky and stay on my desktop until I tell it to go away.

I'm not sure which of these problems this is:

a) Libnotify does not yet have support to do this
b) A porting issue from old libnotify to new libnotify (done by dhm)
c) Evolution never had it to begin with and this is going to be something that
is going to need to go to BZ.G.O

From IRC conversation about this:

<J5> skadz: make it sticky?  You mean not go away?
<J5> skadz: just set it to never timeout
<skadz> dhm: there's your answer :)
<skadz> j5, but is there some way to make it close then?
<skadz> like an X or something?
<J5> skadz: just click on it

It would be REALLY cool if the click could actually be the same thing as
clicking the panel applet when it has the blinking exclamation point on it and
it brings up the meeting information, but I'm just a dreamer :)

There is a constant you pass to the notify_notification_set_timeout API. 
Something like NOTIFY_TIMEOUT_NEVER.  It is in the notifycommon.h file.  As for
clicking to bring up the meeting information all you have to do is add an action
(notify_notification_add_action) and do whatever you need to do in the callback.
 It will put a button or hyperlink in the the bubble.
