Description

When one parts a channel the input part is locked for that buffer, this makes rejoining near impossible without use of the mouse.

No longer disable the input widget for inactive buffers

Some users need or want to be able to enter text even in inactive buffers, so
don't stop them from doing so, other clients don't either.

Also, disabling the input line seems to eat global QAction shortcuts for some bizarr
reason (even though the MainWin is marked as focusWidget, it doesn't receive any keypresses
when the input line is disabled).

Fixes #462.

  • Status changed from New to Confirmed

Input line is locked to indicate that one is not in the channel currently. Before that, we didn't have a clear indication for that.

Now, this was done in times of the old old chatwidget, when we couldn't easily play around with display. Nowadays I'd suggest just painting the whole backlog in some greyish color, or something like that, and leaving the input line active. A ChatView::setActiveState(bool) should be easy enough to implement, and the selection format could probably quite simply override the foreground color then with some light color (possibly the same color we use for inactive buffers in BufferView).
