Re: [virt-tools-list] [PATCHWORK] [virt-manager] fullscreen behaviour

What does this mean exactly?
It is now possible to focus the window for the menu and close it with a keystroke. The console will still be up, fullscreened, and with no obvious way to control it. So on closing this window I think the console/details window should be closed as well. Or alternatively go out of fullscreen mode, putting the menu back in place.

Where would the button go? A separate window, or just a top level menu
entry?

I tried it out, I like the direction its going in! I know the comments
above indicate that the alignment isn't quite right, but is this what
you are seeing?

Particularly the distance from the top of the screen. Is that
intentional? I'm running on fedora rawhide FYI.

No, I intended for it to be at the very top, and works as expected here. I suspect you are running GNOME with a panel at the top? If so, could you test if it is positioned correctly when you move the panel to the bottom?
Here is a screenshot of what I see now + a very smooth mockup for the button: http://omploader.org/vMnI2NQ
I also intend for it to be centered horizontally so that the center of widget is at the center of the screen.

Out of curiousity, what does virtual box do here? (you indicated you
were familiar with it). I'll try to take some time to set up vmware
workstation and vbox to play with it. There seems like several ways we
could possibly tweak this behavior, and I'm interested what the
precedent is.

Virtualbox has a dedicated menubar for this. It has menus for basic vm control, the name of the vm, a button to "pin" (disable autohide). Autohide is enabled by default, and it also has a delay on hiding the menubar.

Did you have a specific behaviour in mind?
