Description robert marshall 2012-01-12 21:46:34 UTC
Version:           2.5.0 (using KDE 4.7.4) 
OS:                Linux

The code assumes that the length the user is going to enter is less than 60 minutes and moves the position unexpectedly

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Local Collection->Edit Filter, drag length to the bar, I selected 'greater than. If you then select the minutes (there's no indication that they - the lh field is minutes btw) with the mouse and try typing 62, after typing 6 that is taken as 6 minutes and cursor moves to the second field and you end up entering the value 6:02 which was somewhat unexpected. 

Actual Results:  
as above

Expected Results:  
as above

I do have tracks for than 60 mins long and was trying to find them - yes I can compute that in seconds and hand enter it but it would be nicer if the code didn't assume - or is this going to break expected behaviour for others? If so could the box allow you to enter a larger value by you positioning the cursor and entering a value - rather than when you're in select and type over mode - eg length contains 4:56, you position the cursor before the 4, my view is that it is unexpected that typing 6 does nothing.
(BTW the hint in this webpage for selecting Collection Browser 'For bugs and whishes...' - an extra 'h' in wishes)

Actually, this is not a wish but a real bug:
The filter dialog doesn't allow to enter a length in seconds nor does it allow to enter a length that is higher than 59:59 minutes.
It is possible to enter a filter with length:>40000 for example in the filter field directly.

Reproducible in amarok 2.8.0

hi all,
I've worked on this bug.
Here's my first patch https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/114752/ .

Thanks - I'll try patching my build and see how it goes. I would guess that the result is that the focus when you enter the time field focus will be on the hh component so that people which have been used to it just displaying mm:ss may well enter the wrong value in future, unless they're careful! If so, I'm not sure what the solution is here.

I  see the AGP dialog on track length allows a max value of 9:59:59 maybe the 2 ought to be consistent?
