Description missive 2011-10-16 19:18:29 UTC
Version:           2.4.3 (using KDE 4.7.1) 
OS:                Linux

I am using a dynamic playlist. When a track ends and a new track starts the playlist ends up scrolled all the way to the bottom showing the newly added track instead of up near the top showing the currently playing track.

In the settings I have the General -> Playlist Options -> Automatically scroll playlist to current track setting checked.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Use dynamic playlist with enough total tracks to cause playlist to require scrolling.
Set "Automatically scroll playlist to current track" setting.

Actual Results:  
When track changes and new track is added playlist scrolls to last track.

Expected Results:  
Playlist should automatically show the currently playing track.

OS: Linux (i686) release 3.0.0-12-generic
Compiler: gcc

Vedant, please, take heed of what I told you in the other review request, please do tell what you are going to work on before starting to do so, really. It would spare us all some time.

amarok-devel@kde.org is the only relevant place for Amarok dicussions, please start your work there.

Fix the scrolling problem in dynamic playlists.

After the track was changed the "scroll to current playing track" worked
as per user settings. But in case of dynamic playlists after the tracks
were added (automatically) the PrettyListView scrolled to the tracks added
(i.e. it scrolled to the bottom). It took me so long to figure this out
and even longer to find a solution; but the patch was only of 2 lines.

Anyway I got a better understanding of the Playlist Model-View architecture :)
