Description Martin Krauskopf 2006-02-13 07:19:48 UTC
I.e. when the user resizes a dialog, goes away and later invokes the dialog
again it should remeber its size. This feature is very likely needed through the
whole codebase from time to time and everybody has to copy-paste / reinventing
the wheel again and again. Would be very nice to have this feature available in
central place.

E.g. (by Tim in issue 72380) when requesting a dialog, one should be able to
pass a string token, which DialogDisplayer can use to request a saved preferred
size for a dialog, and also any calculation about screen size should be done there.
