#2095 closed defect (fixed)

GUI: Language selection doesn't fit using 1x overlay

Reported by: joostp Owned by: eriktorbjorn
Priority: normal Component: GUI
Keywords: Cc:


Using latest CVS, when using --force-1x-overlay the
dropdown list of languages is too big to fit on-screen,
so the bottom ones get cut-off (and you can't select them).

Maybe this can be made into a scrollable dialog?
The attached screenshot demonstrates the issue.

I've submitted a simple patch (#1263153) to work around the
problem. It's not perfect by any means, but maybe it's good
enough for 0.8.0? Fingolfin should probably have a say in
the matter, though, since he's done most of the work on the
GUI as far as I know.

In the meantime, I'm attaching a screenshot of what it looks
like with the patch. The string "Norwegian Bokml" isn't
rendered correctly, but that shouldn't have anything to do
with the patch. The small font probably lacks the letter "".

Well, if it works fine, feel free to commit it. I still prefer the scrolling menu
solution, however, the major advantage with your solution is that it actually
is already implemented and working... :-)

Thanks for your work!

I agree that scrolling would be nicer but I figured that
would be harder to implement. It would also mean having the
change the behaviour of the pop-up dialog: It is currently
removed when the mouse button is released, which obviously
would make it hard to scroll. I figured that the patch might
be good enough for the next stable release, and a better way
can perhaps be implemented later.

I'm out of town for the weekend though, and won't be able to
commit it until I return. If someone else wants to do it
before then, that's fine with me.

I've applied the patch, but do feel free to implement
scrolling any time you feel like it.
