Progress bar smooth animation

Fri Feb 10, 2017 4:08 pm
Hello,

I hope this is the right place to ask. A few years ago I had patched the QProgressBar code to make the movements smooth using animation framework. See these two youtube videos I made during KDE4 times:

https://youtu.be/zrvCprVHqag
https://youtu.be/xp2aFgtN2No

I am now going to start exploring doing the same thing for Plasma5 by either patching QProgressBar again or, preferably, creating a KProgressBar class in KDE codebase which can be used as drop-in replacement for QProgressBar.

First approach would mean me going to QT community for their inputs similar to how I'm asking in this thread and benefit of making the change in QProgressBar is that all code using it will pick it up automatically.

Second approach means I get to stay here in KDE community and codebase but then any places that use QProgressBar would need to change to KProgressBar in the declarations.

What I want to ask is whether I should mess with the QT codebase or the KDE codebase, and whether something like this is at all even acceptable from UI perspective - meaning - is there anything forbidden to make progress bars move smoothly in user interface design topics?

Regards!
