Description SlashDevDsp 2010-12-27 15:48:40 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.90) 
OS:                Linux

right click on a konsole to get 'icon settings' select it and then clicking/selecting the preview tab shows the contents but the window keeps growing slowly

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add a konsole icon to the panel or the desktop containment.
2. right click on the console icon and select 'icon settings'
3. now select the 'preview' tab.

Actual Results:  
if the window is resized (vertically to a smaller size) the window keeps growing vertically but very slowly showing the contents of konsole.desktop file

Expected Results:  
the properties window grows slowly, it should not grow if the window is being resized.

Which widget style are you using? If you are using Oxygen could you try Plastique?
Comment 2 SlashDevDsp 2010-12-27 18:39:33 UTC
Yes! this happens only with Oxygen. I have tried plastique and qtcurve and they don't have the same issue.
Comment 3 Hugo Pereira Da Costa 2010-12-28 11:47:51 UTC
I can reproduce. Must be some inconsistency between various pixel metrics in oxygen. Will investigate (not easy though. Might take some time)
Comment 4 Hugo Pereira Da Costa 2010-12-28 11:49:17 UTC
For the record, bug is not present in 4.5 oxygen version.
Must be a side effect/regression from my oxygen rewrite (damn it!)

Fixed sizeFromContents for tabwidgets (to account for translations in subElementRects, I think).

That fixes it, in both trunk and KDE4.6 branch.
Closing. Thanks for reporting.
Comment 8 SlashDevDsp 2010-12-29 04:06:24 UTC
Well I have not applied the patch, but could you also check if the preview window does not grow for a text file?

Because I did try the properties->previewtab of a file test.txt with 4 lines in it and the preview tab kept growing.

thanks for the patch, please confirm though :)
Comment 9 Hugo Pereira Da Costa 2010-12-29 09:22:38 UTC
I confirm. I tested both (and actually used the preview tab inside dolphin to debug, cause this was easier than restarting plasma at each code change).
