Module settings layout problem.

Hi all,

In build 1019 (and also in 1002), there seems to be a layout problem in the
module settings screen. There isn't enough space for the buttons above the
content view (the ones which let you mark a directory as being source,
tests, etc. as well as adding/removing directories). If I am looking at the
module settings for a web app, then initially on my monitor (1600x1200) the
"New Folder" and "Delete" buttons are hidden and the "Mark Web Root" button
is truncated. This is less of a problem for module types with fewer buttons
in this area, but in general the delete button is always hidden. It is
possible to resize the dialog so that these buttons are visible. BUT as the
width of the dialog is increased only about half of the extra width is
allocated to the button area, so the dialog has to be made extremely wide if
all buttons are to be visible.

This applies with both the Classic view and the Default view of the
settings. Is anyone else is having the same problem with this dialog? Is
there already a bug report for this?

Thanks,
Vil.

Yes, I've seen this. The last button is not completely visible on my screen (1024x768). Dunno why I haven't reported before.

Try using your mouse to slide the divider between the tree and the "Add
Content Entry" frames.

The divider location doesn't stick between invocations, but you can make all
the buttons visible without resizing the dialog.

Perhaps the default divider position should allow all buttons to be
displayed, or the row of buttons should wrap if there is not enough room to
display them.

Thanks! I hadn't noticed that there was a draggable divider in there.

No problem.

I don't know when the l&f changed, but I miss the times when anything
draggable had a textured appearance. It seams that now you just have to try
to drag things; if it doesn't move, it must not be draggable...
