#219 closed feature-request (Invalid)

Split details into two tabs

Reported by: tom@… Owned by: andar
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: GTK UI Version:
Keywords: details, tab, split, statistics, torrent info, gui Cc:


The details tab currently consists of two boxes: "Statistics" and "Torrent info". These boxes can become quite wide when displaying a torrent that has a large filename or path. Because these two boxes are displayed next to each other a horizontal scroll bar is displayed when they become wider than the window width itself. This occurs even more often when the deluge window is not maximized.

Can the details tab be removed and replaced by two new tabs: a Statistics and a Torrent Info tab? I think this would make the interface cleaner and easier for users. The Statistics tab would be the logical default tab to display, as this contains the most important information.

This is already done in the gtkui.

I'm using the latest version (on Ubuntu, straight from and it has one details tab in stead of two seperate tabs. I'm quite sure that what I am trying to report is not already done in the versions released so far.

So I'm guessing that either we've got a small misunderstanding or you mean that this has been implemented in Trunk and we will see this in one of the coming releases. To clarify my proposal I've added two images. One of the current interface and one of how I pictured my proposal. The interface in the screenshots is in Dutch and using a dark theme but you'll probably get the picture ;)

The gtkui is a component of deluge 0.6 so I was under the assumption you were talking about 0.6. I will attach a screenshot of 0.6 to show you what it looks like.

Looking good! You're right. My request has already been implemented in a future version. Now that I've seen this I can't wait to see the 0.6 branch being released!

My compliments for Deluge. Keep up the good work!
