You can resize KRunner’s height to zero so the window merely disappears and you can only bring it back by killing krunner and restarting it. Then it works fine again.

Reproducible: Always

"You can resize KRunner’s height to zero"

it wasn't obvious how to reproduce; if you can, in future reports please include detailed reproduction steps so that triage time is faster and we don't close a report as "worksforme" because we can't figure out how to reproduce it. thanks...

(working on a fix)

prevent zero sizing the window

Sorry Aaron, should‘ve written “KRunner can be sized so its size reaches zero” :) Thanks for the fix :)
Comment 4 Aaron J. Seigo 2011-05-30 13:48:59 UTC
actually, what would have been useful is something like this:

* set krunner's window to be 'free floating' in the configuration
* resize the window height using the mouse by clicking on the window edge
* note that the window can be resized to 0 height

the free floating bit was important (non-reproducable here with krunner docked to the top edge), and noting how the resize was done (e.g. not using the alt+f3 menu) was also useful.

cheers ..
Comment 5 Kai Uwe Broulik 2011-05-30 13:56:12 UTC
Well, I didn’t even consider/try that freefloating bit, I had it docked but now I cannot resize it to zero when docked either. So fixed anyway :)

Created attachment 60716 [details]
KRunners height was reduced to its (new) minimum and then something was searched

Your fix introduced a regression: Automatic resizing when results become available does not work anymore.
When krunner is triggered, its height is the default startup height.
Enter something: It used to resize itself so it showed about 4 entries.
Now it resizes to the last set size no matter how small or big this is (I think there is a max of 1/2 screen height and of course the minimum to prevent it from being set to zero). So, if you resize krunner to its minimum (there have to be results in the list, if the list is empty, it won’t remember the height you resized it to), close it, re-open it and search for something, its input field will be smashed together with the results partially covering the borders thus making resizing it bigger hard. (I hope you understand what I mean, see attachment)

Make KRunner automatically adjust its height when results show up like it used to. Or better: Remember the last set size, so users can adjust the amount of items shown to their liking but set a minimum height of like 4 items.

"Automatic resizing when results become available does not work anymore."

this actually works here. occasionally i can trigger the behavior seen in your screenshot, but it isn't due to it not resizing on new items, but from what i've seen this only happens when i manually resize the window to be very small. so it's doing exactly what it is being told to do, but it is being told to do something silly.

i agree that it probably shouldn't be resizable below 1 item.
Comment 8 Kai Uwe Broulik 2011-06-06 23:33:25 UTC
It does resize once I enter something but to the size I have manually set, not to a preset default like before. But the new(?) behavior is definitly fine, it gives the user control about how many items he wishes to see. But yes, it shouldn’t be resizable below 1 item :)

bigger default minimum size; prevents squishies.
