Description gerard 2003-12-29 15:26:19 UTC
Version:           1.0 (using KDE 3.1.94 (CVS >= 20031206), compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.1 (Mandrake Linux 9.2 3.3.1-2mdk)
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.22-10mdk

In tools ->Calculators
->Time calculators->Day duration
	->Julian day
	->Sidereal time
->Coordinate converters
	->Apparent Coordinates
	->Horizontal Coordinates
The date boxes are too short, and I cannot see the last digit.

The vertical separator between the left and the right pane is impossible to resize when the whole window is not resized before

I can't reproduce either of these bugs.  

I tried several different fonts and font sizes, and made the calculator window as small as I could.  In every case, the QDateEdit was always big enough to show the date.  This was with Qt 3.2.1.  What version of Qt are you running?

Likewise, I am always immediately able to move the QSlider separating the left and right panes of the calculator window.  Does it require a window resize every time you open the calculator window?

I suspect this may be a Qt issue, since we have not done anythihng special to these widgets.

The problem with the frozen slider is probably just that the calculator module being displayed cannot be made any smaller than its initial size.  Once you make the window wider, then there is room to move the slider.  I don't really consider this a bug.

If you make the calculator window wider, does the QDateWidget then display the full date string?  If so, then the fix will be to recompute the initial size of the calculator window.

Right, but what I am saying is that what you describe is the behavior I
see on my system.  I can make the font size ridiculously large, and the
QDateEdit widget resizes itself correctly.  We haven't done anything special
to this widget, so again, I have no idea why it is not working correctly
for you.

Seems working now (KDE 3.3.rc2) for the size of the date spinboxes.
The remaining (resizing only the left pane) is only a wish.

This problem again visible with KStars 1.2 on KDE 3.5 on SUSE Linux 10.0. See attachment to bug 119963.
