[Suggestion] Cut nicknames if they exceed roaster width

Discussion created by miguy2k on Jan 25, 2007

Hi there, I was experiencing a small issue with my msn contacts (who always use wayyyy too long nicknames).

 

When a contact''s nickname exceeds the width of the roaster, the presence icon is pushed outside the limits of the roaster window at the left and the transport icon similarly is pushed outside the limits of the roaster window at the right... thus neither the presence icon nor the transport icon can be seen and the nick itself is hard-cut by the window border.

 

This could be prevented by cutting the nick to have a maximum width of ( roaster window width - presence icon width - transport icon width ) and putting "..." at the end of the nick if it exceeds this width.

 

Greetings,
