Description Roman Rakus 2009-04-03 10:03:41 UTC
Description of problem
A clean, logical dialog layout helps the user to quickly understand what information is required from them. It's very important to have proper spacing between window borders, controls and separators (if used), controls alignment etc.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce
1. invoke any dialog

Actual results
Incorrect controls spacing and alignment.

Expected results
Correct window/dialog layout.

Comment 1 Pravin Satpute 2009-04-24 10:21:00 UTC
"The flags allow the specification special dialog characteristics: make the dialog modal (gtk.DIALOG_MODAL) and destroy the dialog when the parent is destroyed (gtk.DIALOG_DESTROY_WITH_PARENT)."

I have used 'gtk.DIALOG_MODAL' in all gtk.MessageDialog.

Can you give some existing example, how it should be?

Comment 2 Roman Rakus 2009-04-27 10:51:57 UTC
The problem is in spacings. See http://library.gnome.org/devel/hig-book/stable/design-window.html.en
And dialog should be centered on parent.
