I am currently creating an extension for a customer. All I ever did was creating top panel buttons for my extensions, but the customer wants a new borderless, allways on top window / popup / widget in the corner of the desktop which shows and hides to some signals.
I read through some other extensions to find clues on how to add a widget to the desktop by itself. But all I ever found was that these extensions use allready defined containers of the
imports.ui.main.layoutManager or other predefined containers.
I extend a
St.Widget as my widget which I want to show. How do I, for example, add it in the bottom right corner, allways on top of all other windows and still be able to controll the underlaying windows? Not like the Alt + F2 command input modal which supresses controll of the underlaying programm?
Anyone got some ideas or clues?
Thanks in advance.
