Bug in 3.54 in StyleClass on Comboboxes?

Postby ellenmeserow » Fri Feb 15, 2008 11:26 pm

I think some of the changes you did from my bug submissions on comboboxes have a bug in 3.5.4. Just upgraded, and the comboboxes default color has now changed from white to grey, and they've all become center justified. My default in my stylesheet is white and left justfied -- also I can't seem to get the styleclass property popup list to activate for comboboxes, though it works in 3.5.3.

I think there is now a more serious bug: names of new elements (or changed names) are not saved when restarting Servoy. This affects comboboxes, checkboxes, rectangles, but not text fields, as far as I have tested. This is a big issue because a missing name in a form could cause a lot of troubles. Any suggestion for a workaround?

Besides that, setting a CSS property for check fields adds a border to the field, even if border is set to 0. Font formatting is respected. Setting the border property to empty in the properties panel doesn't remove it. The only way to hide the border is to use .setBorder("EmptyBorder,0,0,0,0") in an onShow method.

Same for tabpanel: no CSS property to choose from is shown in the properties panel.

Image_Media fields now enlarge the image they display if the border is set to empty, while they keep the original proportions if there is a border.

Regarding comboboxes: you can now define a style for comboboxes on the top level of CSS. So I think the description above is not quite right. It's not field.combobox, but simply combobox. So just define a style combobox and you have control over comboboxes only. Also, combobox.mySpecialCombo should work and mySpecialCombo should then be usable from the style class popup.

This version, is introducing also strange things..
All my tabpanels are white in the inside (using XP with Windows L&F)
instead of default grey.

If I set the tabpanel transparant off, than the default background grey is back again. But than If someone is using Kunstoff L&F, I'll get that ugly dark-grey at the top of the tabpanel.. grr.... :?

I liked it, the way it was..... :(

Ellen, make this in your stylesheet:
combobox
{
background-color: #ffffff;
border-width: 0;
text-align: left;
}

that works for me.

Just for clarification: field.combobox and field.check in your stylesheet doesn't work.
As noted in this thread already you need to use 'combobox' and 'check'. Thus without the 'field' prefix.


Btw is it the correct (default) behavior for checkboxes to be centered ??
Can this be changed to left align? Or even better according to the text orientation setting (left-to-right = left align, etc.)


Edit: fixed a typo

I think center alignment is indeed the default for JComboboxes. But can't you just create a combobox style that does the left alignment for you?

Patrick and others suggest creating a style for comboboxes (or checkboxes) in the Css sheet. But styles (using "combobox" and "check" without the field. prefix, as Robert Ivens correctly suggests) are not recognized and they are not shown in the properties panel. So creating styles to modify the new default behavior does not help at all. At least this is what happens to me in MacOS X Leopard 10.5.2, so I decided to revert to 3.5.3 until this issue is resolved (and the disappearing names one, also).

I'm sorry. There was an issue with my backend database that did not save data. The problems therefore were not caused by Servoy 3.5.4, besides the new default behavior of comboboxes and checkboxes.

I was talking about the checkboxes, not the comboboxes.
Create a field and put a valuelist on it with multiple values. Then set the display type to checkboxes. You will see they are centered. Something they only started doing in 3.5.4.

Hi rioba,

When you create a style with the name 'combobox.mySpecialStyle' then 'mySpecialStyle' will show up in the properties panel for comboboxes.
Using 'combobox' alone will apply to any combobox that doesn't have a specific styleClass set.

Hope this explains things.

Hi Robert, I wasn't reading right. And checkboxes can't be made left aligned by a style?

Yes they can. But that wasn't my question ;)

We are unable to reproduce this, also a name is just another property, and all names are on element level (not specific to combos/checks/etc), for persistence there is nothing special about names (except you can not have duplicate names)

I think this was always the case that they where default centered.
