 Hey everyone,

I watched the UI session on Google IO this year in which they showed
us the quick action dialogs used in the twitter App.
I really like the way they work and would like to include one in my
own App.
But even though I'm not a beginner I can't think of an efficient way
of implementing the dialog / badge / bar.

I tried looking at the implementation of the quick contact bage but it
is rather complex and hard to extract the essentials. And in the end
it's not really the same as the twitter one.

Does anyone have an example or is there any documentation of how to
create quick action bars?

Haven't played with it myself, and the look-and-feel is up to you.

1. OpenCore bug: nOffset in OMX Buffer header

Looks like OpenCore  does not understand the usage of nOffset field on
input port. There is no effect when component sets nOffset to a non-
zero value. OpenCore ignores nOffset and copies data into reserved
region (same behavior as when nOffset is set to Zero)

The nOffset parameter indicates the number of bytes between the start
of the buffer and the start of valid data. The nFilledLen parameter
specifies the number of contiguous bytes of valid data in the buffer.
The valid data in the buffer is therefore located in the range pBuffer
+ nOffset to pBuffer + nOffset + nFilledLen.
