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)

    Yeah, well, the view is a WebView, so it's all HTML. If you have any idea how to use HTML/JavaScript to adapt to that without completely cluttering the code feel free to give a try.

    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.

    My main window was also having the same conflict with the widget area when someone recommends me to follow it to make the things clear so I followed your posts and now everything seems perfect in my side.

    No começo, eu não estava disposta a obter treinamento profissional para aprender Mergulho, mas as vantagens que você está Olatcc.com.br de aprender profissionalmente habilidades de mergulho mudaram de idéia. Agora eu decidi visitar sua instituição para aprender o curso de mergulho de aventura.
