BUG: Result list doesn't follow selected item
« on: July 20, 2017, 06:41 AM »
Hi,
I've noticed a bug with the display of result list.
When scrolling trough results with keyboard, the list doesn't scroll down to show the selected item.

Steps to reproduce:
  • Search for something that has more than 9 results (or whaterver results are visible in the list)
  • Press keyboard down arrow to browse trough the list
  • Try to press down to select item that is offscreen (ie. the 10th item in my example)

The item is actually selected, but you can't see what is selected, because the list doesn't scroll to show the selected item.
If you now press the up key on the keyboard and try to go past the first item, the selected item is now the last item in the list, and the list scrolls to show it. When pressing up further the list follows the selected item.

So works for up, broken for down.

I hope someone understood my rambling.   :-[

This must be something related to your specific configuration -- or a bug of some sort that is causing the window to not be as tall as it thinks it is.

I've tried playing with the settings a bit.
This is only apparent when using "Large icon slides"

My settings are as follows:
Results display style: Large icon slides

Max entries to display in normal result list: 100
Max entries to display in extended results list: 100
Max size to grow results window: 9

Switch from Large to Small Icons on DirLists - Off
Switch from Large to Small Icons to Fit Results - Off

If I switch Results display style to Small Icon Report then it's ok,
If I turn on the Switch from Large to Small Icons to Fit Results then it's ok.
But results are displayed in a condensed list, which I personally don't like :)

If I set Max entries to display in normal result list to 9, which is equal to Max size to grow, then it's ok, but then there is only 9 results.

Can you make the Large Icon Slides calculate window height correctly?
