Channeltooltip looks like garbage
Quassel GUI (Qt)
If the topic is more than about 20 characters the whole thing gets wrapped (often multiple times) rendering the Tooltip to something like Toolgarbage
I noticed the automatic linebreak of the topic. In the channels I was joined at that moment (e.g. #quassel.de) it didn't look that bad. Perhaps an extra linefeed, some other colors or a horizontal rule might help.
I attached 2 files that show the issue.
In general I think (open to discussion) that the tooltips should contain important/helpful data represented in a clean way. think: less is more. So: is the topic needed or helpful here? Maybe a short/elided version suffices?
looking at those screenshots: less than and greater than (>) should be escaped, as they are treated as tags and unknown tags are dropped.
what about this:
i changed the order - topic is now last
i placed a small blank line as spacer between the topic and the rest - the horizontal rule had too much hight (even after setting <hr style="hight: 2px"/>)
-> see screenshots #gentoo & #qt-chat
... any ideas/remarks concerning my screenshots?
as EgS said: less is more - so the topic could also be chopped or even not displayed at all. perhaps the user should descide for himeself (configuration -> general-options)
context menu is now configurable - it can be chosen if the topic is shown in the context menu
