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.
