Description Michael Meeks 2016-11-02 15:46:35 UTC
In our help->about dialog we present this:

Build ID: f19f88a0d49859eb714711cac72793f09f5f7d5c

It would be far better to have a link instead which goes to:


we could also happily halve the length of the git hash, it doesn't need to be so long I think.

Code is in:


And we build the version string and put it into a single label:


That label is fetched from a UI config file here:


Which talks of a GtkTextView which is really:

vcl/source/window/builder.cxx-        xWindow = VclPtr<VclMultiLineEdit>::Create(pRealParent, nWinStyle);

a VclMultiLineEdit. Unfortunately this widget is not really capable
of including a hyperlink that we can just click.

We could include a FixedHyperlink widget in place of the first-line BuildID - which might work well. See:


You'll need to put that into the glade as a "GtkLinkButton"

Hopefully that will make it easier to quickly see what is in a build.

Thanks !
