There is nothing to do in GUI. Strings from libkdcraw must be optimized...

Gilles, there are 2 problems that can be fixed in KipiPlugins+libkdcraw:
1. Even if you use RAW batch converter in English, the _horizontal_ scrollbar _always_ appears when there is no enough _vertical_ space. Shall I create a new bug report for this?
2. Layouting can be improved: https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/101375/ , https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/101376/

After applying those patches the width of the panel with Russian localization becomes 2 pixels narrower (though it may depend on the fonts used) than without those patched and with English language.

The bottleneck for Russian translation is now "T(K):" translated as "Temperature (K):" in messages/kdegraphics/libkdcraw.po.

Comment 5 Alexander Potashev 2011-05-17 13:03:14 UTC
The bug is still not fixed since the horizontal scrollbar appears when it shouldn't.
Comment 6 caulier.gilles 2011-05-17 13:08:56 UTC
It's due probably to a bug in Qt4 QScrollArea which do not handle properly the width of content to host.

Comment 8 Alexander Potashev 2011-05-17 13:29:11 UTC
If the problem can be fixed in QScrollArea::sizeHint (though, I'm not 100% sure about that), then it also can be hack-fixed by reimplementing RExpanderBox::sizeHint.
Comment 9 caulier.gilles 2011-05-17 13:33:43 UTC
yes probably. Patch is welcome...

I did some debugging last week, and figured out that sizeHint for the right-side panel is called only once, i.e. nobody cares to all it again after the batch converter window or the contents of the QScrollArea change their sizes.

My guess is that we should call QScrollArea::widget()->adjustSize(); from time to time (I don't mean to call it every 100ms ;), adjustSize should probably be hooked to some signals or events).

Another file where changes must be minimal to fix it as explained in comment #8

Comment 14 Maik Qualmann 2015-05-12 19:21:15 UTC

the batch RAW converter no longer exists. The German translation is also longer than the English. I can not notice any problems in BQM or in the settings dialog.

Comment 15 caulier.gilles 2015-05-12 21:16:36 UTC

Originally, the problem have been reported from RAWConverter kipi tool dialog.

The widget where problem have been detected is RAW decoding settings. It also used in RAWImport tool of digiKam Image Editor.

Just turn one RAW loading file in Editor through RAWImport tool and look if dysfunction exist on right sidebar of editor where Raw decoding settings is plugged.

Comment 16 Maik Qualmann 2015-05-14 20:16:07 UTC
No horizontal scroll bar in the editor with the RAW import tool. Tested with the German and Russian language setting and a bigger font.

Comment 17 caulier.gilles 2015-05-14 20:30:17 UTC
yes, me too. we can considerate this file as fixed now.
