Slingshot Column View by DanRabbit Slingshot Column View by DanRabbit
Okay so some people have been whining about seeing something more traditional from Slingshot, so I thought about giving Slingshot another view in addition to the regular icon view.

Also, wanted to play with what Slingshot could look like in the white menu style that I've been dabbling with lately.

Question. The current slingshot use grid layout on the right in kategory mode. Would this mockup be implementet how it is here? Since it is the same funktionality when the grid is used also in kategory mode. There is nearly no difference to kategory mode in kurrent slingshot. :(

Sure, I think it can use a list view instead of a grid, and I'm not opposed to showing two columns like your mockup. There's an open bug report for it here: [link]

The regular icon view will probably be default, but the view switcher is already implemented.

why did you make it white?
the wing panel is black, hence slingshot would better match to wingpanel when it's black

Couple of reasons:

* The panel is a permanent item, Slingshot is only temporarily shown. So one thing we're doing with the objects material here is distinguishing it's level of permanence in the interface.

* Another is contrast level. At first, menus and popovers were dark. But because of their nature, they end up have a lot of text entries and things that create a really intense level of contrast. Having them white instead lowers the contrast and makes it easier to read over without encountering too many visual "bumps".

Again with the panel, the intention is to lower contrast by making it the same color as your display bezel. It's a permanent UI element, but it's importance is low and it should only really "appear" when you're looking for it.
