Panel show Triangle
Closed, ArchivedPublicPATCH



I made a patch to make the triangle icon on the UI panels optional.
The option is displayed in User_Preferences, Interface.

This doesnt affect the UI nodes triangle, just the panels of the UI.
Panels can be opened by pressing the whole header, so the triangle is not required visually.
So this is a patch to make the draw code optional.

Patch was made after reading this topic:

I added a short doc of changes + screenshot.

The patch was tested on 2.67b r58051 with patch.exe for windows.

When the patch is implemented, the theme.xml files will have to be updated.

When the patch is implemented, the init_userdef_do_versions(void) code in resources.c.
The version number should be 1 sub version higher than the implemented version, i think.
