Probably the last version of this mod.
Big thanks to my three donators, People like you keep developers making awesome things.

Changelog:
The sorting issue on reboot has been fixed, Samsung made it so it would only properly work if you have all apps in alphabetical order.
As a happy side effect my start up code seems twice as fast as samsung, reducing start up time!

Instructions
Just download the attached APK and update the current version, and reboot your device for the changes to take effect.

Requirements

Root
XposedFramework - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2012770

Another multi window mod?

Yes! Because of the wonderful xposed framework it should work on all roms that have the normal multiwindow control.
But wait there is more! With others mods if you try to move an app to the bar from the edit page sometimes, you're suddenly dragging a different app, but with my mod this is fixed :highfive: Now also features correct sorting on reboot and faster start up times. :cool:

How to
  • Download and install the xposed framework from the thread above (no flashing required, but does require root)
  • Download and install my attached APK
  • In the xposed installer app goto the modules pane and activate my mod
  • Reboot
  • Enjoy

Seems to work fine on 4.1.2 LK7 . It didnt seem to like apps that only work in landscape but I expected that. Thanks very much for this so much easier than the other mods.

I don't know but i think so, just test it i guess :)
The worst that could happen is that the multiwindow bar process stops, and then you can disable the mod with 4 clicks.

Its working fine on the N7105 just make sure you install the xposed framework correctly and all the mods work brilliantly

It should work on any stock rom. Just make sure you install the xposed framework once you've opened it. You have to reboot for a mod to work once activated in the xposed framework

My first mod how exciting :) Let me know if it works for you as well! (please add your version so i can add it to the list)
...

I just sat down to make this myself, since I noticed that people still need to download an "updated" version of Multiwindow for their phone...

Nice work :) Just saved me making it :)

Wonderful. I think if xposed mods were grouped up in pulser_g2 thread to make that a sort of repository, it would make more people aware of them.

I don't agree, either 1 post or 100 posts which will you notice? ;)
Also if things start stacking up developers wont be able to keep questions and such separated, if everyone posts in the same thread.

I think maybe separate threads but a sticky for a repository would be the best solution.

Just a query. Does this mod continuously run in the background or something like that. I ask this as I feel slight drain on battery since I installed this mod.

Well to be completely honest, a forum setup like XDA is terrible for development. It's impossible to keep track of anything.
You need a proper bug tracker for good development.

The mod is working fine, thank you!

There is one small thing I would like to ask if possible.
The function do not work when I connect it to the dongle (allshare cast). It might act the same while on hdmi but I do not have a cable to check it.
On custom rom with mod for multi this feature is working fine, if that helps.

    If i don't die before tonight, I'll release a 2.0 framework compatible version.

    Ugh no sleep last night (Irritation bonus modifier!), and windows didn't want to detect my phone for an hour hnnnng.
    But still got you guys the new version, good luck

    Uploaded a new version, which hopefully resolves all issues.

    I found a nice little tweak for phones with this mod on some website, but it doesn't seem to have been mentioned in this thread before.
    if you combine it with xposed app settings you can get a hybrid phone/tablet mode where Windows in split-screen mode can be undocked to turn them into floating apps like on the note 10.1.
    it's not perfect, but it does work.
    the undock icon only appears when 2 windows are open, and it doesn't seem to work on the first window you open.
    to enable this:
    set the screen(dp) option for "android system" to 1280x800 in xposed app settings but say no when you're offered to kill it.
    reboot your phone (power>restart or the reboot button in the xposed installer)
    open the multi-window launcher, and open an app fullscreen.
    drag the app you want to have floating from the multi-window launcher on to the fullscreen app.
    tap the green pin to unpin the app and make it float.

    apps that are floating like this will work pretty much the same as in Windows.
    you drag them around using the bar on top.
    there's a maximize and a close button in the top-right corner.
    tapping the pin again should put the floating window back into split-screen mode.

    edit: some corrections.
    once undocked the pin button stops working.
    and the float options don't seem to appear on some apps.
    perhaps an idea for an expansion of the multi-window mod would be to make floating windows more consistent and easier to enable.

    Just perfect! Thanks so much!

    I just would like so much to automatically sort all apps in alphabetical order. Would this be possible to implement?

    Both enabled apps and the Edit Panel...

    In theory, yes. But there are also people who do not that.
    And because manual sorting also always alphabetic sorting,
    I have chosen to leave it on manual.

    However there is currently an issue with this which i will look into probably tonight.



    *Update on the sorting issue*

    So i looked into why apps positioning changes on a reload.
    And i found the problem, Samsung has a function to restore apps on reboot (It is unchanged in my mod, so every multiwindow mod is affected by this)

    It's simply wrong... It can never restore apps in the same order the way it written at the moment.
    It also waste resources doing things multiple times for no reason causing extra load times and allocates extra memory for nothing, Can't believe that they made such sloppy code.

    Anyway..... Ill have to rewrite the whole function to solve the issue.
    I will try to rewrite it, but i am not sure that i will succeed.
