Any chance of some kind of roadmap Jack?
I'd like to advance some of the ideas that I've thrown around as suggestions/feature requests, but I don't want to waste my time by writing something totally homespun to find you have a great design in mind, and produce it!
I was wondering what the TaskBar will be?
The more I think about how I'll be using the YUI and yui-ext classes in my application, and how my bosses want it to look and feel, the more I realize that it will be desktop-like.
I've been looking at TIBCO since it was on Ajaxian earlier today, and while it doesn't look good, the maximizable, minimizable windows are an excellent concept.
I'm considering extending the Toolbar class to accomodate special instances of ToolbarButtons which are attached to BasicDialogs. BasicDialogs could be registered with an instance of Toolbar, and have a button appear to represent them. Is this the kind of thing the TaskBar is planned to be?
I also very much like this idea of "undocking" ContentPanels from their Regions into BasicDialogs which can be then moved around, resized and possibly minimized into the Region's tool area. I can work on that in my spare time.
