#2372 new bug

[Tracker] unneeded offset in icon mode

Reported by: aldeck Owned by: aldeck
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/Tracker Version: R1/pre-alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

Open a folder (ex: /boot/home) in icon mode. The scrollbar shows that there is a small space on the left although theres only unneeded white space there. The added space is dependent on the width of the text of the leftmost icon. Problem is present on R5/OpenTracker too.

Expected behaviour: The scrollbars shouldn't be needed/activated in such cases.

See #1263 for previous discussion on the issue.

I have a patch pending that solves the issue, i created this ticket to avoid polluting other tickets like #361 or #1263, if we ever need more discussion.

Well, i didn't commit anything yet because it needed a bit of refactoring in BPoseView to do it cleanly. I started refactoring what i needed but it's not a simple patch anymore and could introduce a few new bugs, well maybe i'd need a branch so that i can benefit from version control and avoid the pressure of touching a (IMO) core component thats quite stable. Well i don't promise anything, but what's our policy regarding branches, it seems it's not a big deal, what should i do?

Just create a directory with your developer name in haiku/branches/developer and feel free to do in it whatever you like.
