Description Luca Giambonini 2016-01-31 22:46:25 UTC
When I add a new plasmoid the minimum width and height are not respected.
All plasmoids are affected. For instance if I add the note plasmoid an icon is shown instead of the "post-it" image.

This is the QML code that set the minimum layout values:
    property int minimumWidth: 540
    property int minimumHeight: 480
    Layout.minimumWidth: minimumWidth < buttonRow.width ? buttonRow.width : minimumWidth
    Layout.minimumHeight: minimumHeight

Reproducible: Always

We fail this check.

    //this should never happen, since we ask to create it if doesn't exists
    if (!ownLayout) {

Which is brilliant.

In theory we should have a layout because of the line

    //HACK: check the Layout properties we wrote
    QQmlProperty p(this, "Layout.minimumWidth", QtQml::qmlContext(d->qmlObject->rootObject()));

However, that code does nothing. p.isValid() returns false.

It used to work because the containment code later creates the layout attached, and the timer masked the root problem.

Don't know a good fix ATM.
Comment 3 Luca Giambonini 2016-02-04 21:33:23 UTC
which is the exact pkg affected, plasma-workspace or plasma-framework?
How I can help to fix this bug? There is a workaround that I can use to have a minimum size of the plasmoid?
Comment 4 David Edmundson 2016-02-06 00:38:07 UTC
Plasma-framework is the affected part; ./src/plasmaquick/appletquickitem.cpp to be exact

You can help fix it by fixing it. That's about it, I'm afraid.

There's no good workaround.

Reverting this changes fixed my problem temporarily. I consider it as a workaround.
