I’m looking at the small apps included with haiku source (ActivityMonitor and MediaPlayer the most) and learning how to program the OS.
The reason for my curiosity was born from this:
as I needed to tweak the monitor settings and I think new windows should not appear off screen.
On a side this is a very trivial issue to fix (the dialog has fixed coordinates) but on the other hand should an OS aim towards a general solution?
I mean, should the BScreen class include some methods to easily check and move new windows/dialogs before showing them?
(so to have a workflow “create a rectangle for a new window” → “ask the current Screen to check the coordinates and move the window into visible area” → “fill the windowwith widgets/whatever”)
