Marble: Dialog style for the webpopup render plugin

completed by: Mohammed Nafees

mentors: Torsten Rahn, Dennis Nienhüser

Extend the webpopup render plugin (see ) to look more like a popup dialog:

  • Use qDrawBorderPixmap to draw a border
  • Add a button or icon at the top border which, when clicked, hides the popup
  • Draw some indicator (arrow, speech bubble) to the geo position (coordinates)
  • Optionally draw an appropriate drop shadow image (use inkscape for that) that is used to render a drop shadow
