#7583 closed bug (fixed)

Description (last modified by anevilyak)

I'm using hrev41759

how to reproduce the bug: Open MediaPlayer, Open the playlist of the mediaplayer. Now stack that two windows together. Make the playlist-window the active window. Now make the window bigger and smaller till you see two windows instead of one. That means, the window below is sometimes bigger than the window above and so you see sometimes two windows instead of one.

Idea to solve that bug: For example I can imagine, that you could introduce a new option to the bwindow to be able to the window to the state "show just title bar". And then when you stack windows set all windows to "show just title bar" except the active window. And when you change to another window in the stack, then tell that window how much to resize, then make it "fully visible" and make it the active window, and then set the other window, which was the active window, to "show just title bar" and so on... I guess in current situation all windows in stack get the information to resize when the active window resizes.

That bug doesnt happen all the time. I guess it's because the windows in that case of the mediaplayer have different borders. In a stack with all windows having the same border, it seems it works fine.

I seems I made a wrong guess. It's not because of different window-borders. I guess, it's because the mediaplayer refuses in some cases to resize properly.

Yes, it seems it's because of restricions (like the menu-bar) the media can't resize to any size, and that's why that effect happens. So perhaps that kind of problems could be indeed solved, if in the case of inactive stacked windows, just the "title bar" is visible.
