Description Andrey Esin 2008-10-17 20:42:02 UTC
Version:           2.0-svn rev.872644 (using KDE 4.1.2)
Compiler:          gcc 4.2.4 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

If file has long (more than 500 symbols) Track or Artist name and file added to playlist and you watch tab "Summary" in Tag Dialog you will see clean dialog without any buttons, tabs and other widgets.
To reproduce this bug i have made little mp3 file, which in attach.
And write little patch, may be, it will be useful.

P.S. I have never seen songs with so long names, but i think it is a bug :)
P.S.S May be, this bug, only on my computer....

Example file to test this bug

Add this file to playlist, open Tag Dialog and click on "Summary" if it's ok then this my bug, if it's clean it's bug of Amarok or QT :)

Patch to solve this problem

In this patch, long names will be truncate to more small names (truncCount is variable which determines how much symbols leave in name)

Andrey, there is a simpler way to do this:

Comment 4 Andrey Esin 2008-10-18 11:28:40 UTC
Oh...sorry :( I didn't know about this :(
Ok i will remake the patch, but i think elidedText not useful for this, because "width is specified in pixels, not characters", may be i mistaken...

So, did you reproduce this bug?

What is the status of this?
Comment 6 Andrey Esin 2008-10-29 16:12:17 UTC
Nobody didn't confirm this bug :(
Comment 7 Mark Kretschmann 2008-10-29 19:21:16 UTC
Sorry Andrey, just tested it with your file: I can confirm it.

What happened was that I got one giant (full width of the screen) black filled rectangle. I had to kill Amarok to get rid of it. Pretty bad.

Track Name or Album Name or Artist Name will stretch as much as possible in dialog with '...' in the end :)
