* th1a is going to take a shower...16:27
th1ahi replaceafill.17:07
replaceafillhey th1a17:07
replaceafillsent you an updated report card17:07
th1aComparing with Vinny's.17:10
replaceafillour grays are darker i think17:10
replaceafilland i couldn't get the grades (after the :) to be bold :(17:11
replaceafillonly way to insert styles i know is paragraphs17:12
replaceafilland paragraphs break in multiple lines17:12
replaceafillso you get17:12
replaceafill80.0% (in bold)17:13
th1aHow do you get them in the comments?17:13
replaceafill"Comments" is a single paragraph17:13
th1aYou have bold within comments.17:13
th1aWhy am I not seeing Ubuntu font in the body?17:13
replaceafillah you mean, in "formatting" for example17:13
th1aThe comments are not Ubuntu font.17:14
replaceafillhmm let me check17:14
replaceafillah, those are unstyled17:15
replaceafillsorry, i hadn't noticed that17:15
replaceafilli'll fix it17:15
replaceafilli'll try using <b></b> for the grade too17:16
replaceafill(similar to the comments)17:16
th1aBasically all I'm going to say at this point is that it needs to conform more closely to Vinny's styles in pretty much every way.17:16
th1aIt also looks way, way uglier with Average, Absences and Tardies hanging off to the right.17:17
th1aSo probably at this point we should be trying to style the best case scenario.17:17
th1aAnd make it look as good as it is going to.17:18
th1aAnd then worry about people fucking it up.17:18
th1aIf you follow me.17:18
replaceafillmaking it look more like vinny's mean custom table formats just for this report17:18
replaceafilli mean, changing background colors for instance17:18
replaceafillwe don't use that in the other reports17:18
th1aBecause he used different colors.17:18
replaceafillit's not a big deal of course, just something to keep in mind17:20
th1aWell... maybe currently we just don't have enough gradation in the standard table format.17:20
th1aLook at page 15 of the guidelines.17:20
replaceafillthose are 3 different grays, correct?17:21
replaceafillstudent profile, column title (first table), subsection title17:21
replaceafilli think we have the subsection one17:22
th1aThere needs to be a difference between the page header gray and the section header gray.17:22
th1aIn general.17:22
th1aHe wasn't super consistent about it, but that's the right way.17:23
replaceafillso, page header stays the same, and we use the other 2 grays in page 15 for table, subtables?17:23
replaceafillpage 2 in the guidelines17:24
replaceafilli think it's using the subtable for courses, correct?17:24
* replaceafill is trying to open the same pdf twice :D17:25
th1aI think he's fairly consistent if you tune out the web parts.17:26
th1aThe hardest part was getting him to focus on the PDF's.17:27
replaceafillmy point is page 2 doesn't follow the page header, table, subtable color scheme17:27
replaceafillit uses page header, subtable17:28
replaceafillagain, that's ok17:28
th1aTry going with header/table/subtable first.17:30
th1a(do this woulend17:30
th1awouldn't have a subtable.17:30
th1aThe main thing is that there should be a progression of lightening grays.17:30
replaceafillgot it17:30
th1aPay attention to the spacing and padding around the comments, etc.17:31
replaceafillkk, i'll try to carbon copy it :D17:32
replaceafilli saw your email to the dev list17:32
th1aOK, give me a minute and let me ask you some follow up about that.17:33
th1aI need to grab a snack.17:33
th1aI would like to fiddle with splitting the attendance gradebook cells into two vertically, so the homeroom attendance for the day would be shown right above the period attendance for the cell.17:36
th1aOr some variation that would show both.17:36
replaceafilli'm setting up the new journal branch to see it17:37
th1aBecause the business logic about auto-updating the period to go with the homeroom is just too crazy I think.17:37
replaceafilltrunk ready, checking...17:41
replaceafill"Why is "Skill Gradebook Archive" under Reports?"17:41
replaceafillthis is in one of my branches17:41
replaceafilli need to merge that17:41
replaceafillthe reportLink needed a view="..." attribute to restrict it17:41
replaceafilli could fix the help and the order of the sidebar too, not sure if yvl is on it though17:42
th1aWell, the idea I'm trying to get some feedback on is trying to split the cells.17:46
th1aAnd how I could even get a sense of what it might look like.17:47
th1aWhat the easiest way to prototype would be...17:47
th1aMaybe starting with just halving the height of all the cells and seeing how tiny that really is.17:47
replaceafillthis is 50% of the actual height:17:50
replaceafilli think the letters just fit17:51
th1aI think it is doable.17:51
th1aWhat if they are capitals?17:51
replaceafillah, good point17:52
replaceafillthey still fit!17:52
th1aOK, I'm going to suggest that then.17:53
th1aThanks replaceafill.17:53
th1aYou should just focus on the report card now, and we'll get back to the attendance cleanup next.17:53
replaceafilli'll go get ready for my class17:54
replaceafillthanks th1a17:54
replaceafillsee you later17:54
th1aDid you pass the first one?17:54
replaceafilli know s**t though :D17:54
replaceafillcan't speak much17:54
replaceafillbut i understand the grammar way better17:55
th1aThat's a start.  ;-)17:55
