Bug Description

The cutoff of the search results at the top of the Dash is incorrect.

Desired solution:

- At the top of the Dash beneath the search box, the search results can be cut off with a fade. The fade should begin at the location of the current hard cutoff, and be completely faded out by halfway from this point to the bottom of the search box

- during handover with John the measured value is 5px for fade-out mask

Such fade-out masks at the top/bottom are currently not possible/implemented in Nux. I have suggested such a feature in the past and also wondered why it's not part of the design-mockups. This is a O+1 feature, which should be added to the Nux 2.0 planning currently underway. I'm just doing that right now.

To get an idea of what John is talking about there, see these two screenshots of a test-program from Notify-OSD, where I use the same concept...

@macslow; Thanks for the screenshots, that is exactly the same concept ;-)

Due to the time that will take to get this done right, I'm pushing this behind other design and distro priority bugs.
