Description Luke-Jr 2018-12-24 22:38:57 UTC

In prior versions (at least 18.04.3 and earlier), the text colour of tabs changed from black to dark purple when there was new content on the tab, and then changed back to black when the tab was selected.

With 18.12.0, the tabs change to dark purple, but never back to black when selected anymore.

1. Open two tabs.
2. In one tab, run "sleep 10 && echo". Immediately switch to the other tab.
3. After 10 seconds, the first tab will change to dark purple.
4. Select that dark-purple tab.


The dark-purple tab remains dark purple, no matter what I do.


Upon selecting the dark-purple tab, it should change back to black.

Looks like this was broken by

    Use QTabBar: drop tons of code

...which dropped the currentTabChanged slot attachment for some reason.

Added it back (updated to current code) and things work again! (Patch attached)

I can't reproduce this on master; I'll try to figure out what fixed it and backport it
Comment 3 Luke-Jr 2018-12-25 02:25:02 UTC
On master, it looks like it was fixed in:

    Don't duplicate the tabs when Spliting the View

I'm not sure it makes sense to backport this, as it looks to be more involved than just fixing issues...?
Comment 4 Kurt Hindenburg 2018-12-25 02:56:19 UTC
Ok, I don't think I'm going to backport that - I'll look at your patch - thanks
Comment 5 Nate Graham 2018-12-26 04:48:20 UTC
Fixed on master already. Backport/alternative patch is possible.
