possible bug in event appearances dialog

Postby gjbth » Fri Jul 17, 2009 3:57 am

I may or may not have found a minor bug in the event appearances dialog.

If the dialog is opened and the two background colours are already selected and left unchanged, I then click the gradient style dropdown list and select a different gradient style. The gradient style preview updates incorrectly until I click either one of the two background colours, then the gradient style preview updates correctly.

Best Regards

I think what is happening is that after you select a new gradient style, the gradient control is "active" and has "input focus". For most dropdown list controls, including this one, focus is designated with a colored rectangle that has a dashed border.

To see another example of what I'm talking about, go to the Program Options, and select a different value from the "Automatically check for progam updates" dropdown list. As soon as the list is clicked and a selection made, the control gets indicated as being active with a blue box that has a dashed border.

I believe the gradient preview is merging with the blue rectangle that indicates the list is active. When you click somewhere else to make a different control active, the blue rectangle is removed and the gradient appears as you would expect.

I'll see if there's a way to make the gradient preview control behave differently than the other dropdown list controls, so this blue rectangle isn't drawn when the control is active. I think it might be possible, but I'm not sure yet. I'll post an update to this thread after I find out.

Yes, I see exactly what you mean from the program options example.

Correction Dan, sometimes it displays correctly sometimes it does not. As yet I cannot determine what I'm doing to have it display correctly one time but not another.

I think if you don't make a selection from the drop-down list after clicking on the control, you'll see the problem. I'll see if there's a way to fix that. If you find other cases, please let me know.
