Description Holger Hetterich 2011-05-26 17:37:47 UTC
Any function could have a small select box (where the other stuff like the close buttons and so on are), "Select Output: "

Currently it would show ASCII or HTML.

If I choose ASCII, it would run smbtaquery with the parameters to produce ascii output and offers me a download of the file.

There is a high chance that I one time will implement a stylesheet to produce a libreoffice document from smbtaquery out of the box. Then, this feature would be extremly cool. 

This is nothing of priority, but I just note it here so that the idea doesn't get lost.

Works, except for the fact that if headlines of functions are too long, their text will be cutted and the output format selectbox will be shown in place.

Do we already have a fix for this?

Fix is in commit c82d4b2c59fb1e39b46960cf1551e23c3faab476 on Devel.
