FrameWindow resize bug

Postby earthsruler » Thu May 15, 2008 06:10

I was resizing a frame window today and noticed that if you drag one edge past its opposite edge you will mess up the window so that there is nothing left but the close button.

I checked in the tracker and it seems its not reported.

Is this a known problem and should i report it to the selfless CEGUI team through mantis?

My current fix is to disable resizing :)

Hi and welcome :),

if this happens with the latest version, it sounds like a bug. I have added it to mantis: http://www.cegui.org.uk/mantis/view.php?id=193

A workaround is to use the MinSize property for your window, for example:

Code: Select all

<property name="MinSize" value="{{0.2,0},{0.2,0}}"/>


To set is minimal dimensions to 20% of its parent.

HTH.

Hi,

I was previously aware of this issue, such that it is. I'm not sure it's actually a bug as such, since the correct procedure is to set an appropriate minimum size.

I guess the close button remaining visible could be considered a bug :)

In that case maybe it would be good idea to simply have a default minimum value to stop it breaking if someone (like me) hasn't set a minimum :).

Yeah, of course ;)

I'll modify the skins so that they are setting an appropriate minimum size.

Code: Select all

<property name="MinSize" value="{{0.2,0},{0.2,0}}"/>



This xml may be outdated.

Just to be clear people wanting to set the minimum size should use

Code: Select all

<Property Name="UnifiedMinSize" Value="{{0.2,0},{0.2,0}}" />


However it doesn't have to be 0.2 ;)

No, it was just my brains ;) I should have added the Unified part.
