Main window not respect widget minimum size
Reported by Heiko Abraham | July 20th, 2009 @ 09:47 AM
Resize the main windows of GitX. As result you see that some widget overdraw other.
I use version 0.6.3.
To replicate the bug:
- Check out a git repository. - Open this repository with GitX. - select the "master" branch - now you see the commit list, and the detail view about the last commit - with a windows size of 900x580 pixel - all widget are shown well - now resize the window to 510x530 pixel - now the SHA-ID draw over the button "Gist it" - now resize the window to 275x500 pixel - now the label "HSA, Author, Date" draw over the "Gist it" button and the user icon - on the status bar, the message text "3 commits loaded" draw over the button
for the detail/raw/tree view
The expected behavior is to set minimum size for some widget. If a label text is longer the the available size, please truncate the text, i.e. for the SHA ID like "4a2b352 ...." (with dots at the end)
Comments and changes to this ticket
- State changed from new to resolved
We also have the option to set a minimum-size for the GitX-window, but we don't like stuff like that. So, to sum up: I can certainly see the problem, but in my opinion it is only of cosmetic nature and only happens when people really use small windows, which I don't think happens too often.
