Continuous zoom in breaks UI (no upper boundary check)

Post by detj » Tue Oct 13, 2009 4:05 am

Supposal
Increase Text Size is being referred here as zooming in
Decrease Text Size is being referred here as zooming out

Description:
While there seems to be a lower boundary check while zooming out (Ctrl--) in the main Everything window, zooming in (Ctrl++) continuously breaks the UI. The filelist component disappears, the status bar zooms in.
Though, this affects only when the user zooms in for a long time, it should be trivial to fix.

Bug info:
Repeatable: Yes
Steps to reproduce: Pressing 'Ctrl++' or 'Edit>Text Size>Increase' repeatedly
Severity (out of 10): 4
Affects (version): 1.2.1.371

I have added an upper limit check for the next release of "Everything".
The default maximum is +27 pixels and can be changed in the Everything.ini
The default minimum is -6 pixels and can be changed in the Everything.ini
Zooming is relative to the current desktop icon font size.
Zooming is in increments of 1 pixel.

Something funky is going on with Zoom.

The shortcut keys, Ctrl++ or Ctrl+- work ... weird, partially, quirky - when focus is on the Result List.

Place focus on Result List.
Ctrl++ will increase once (or so).
Ctrl+- will decrease many times, but weirdly at that.
And then notice what Ctrl++ then does after that.

If focus is on the Search Bar, then things work as expected.

436a.

When the shortcut key Ctrl + + is pressed and the result list has focus it will auto size the column headers (instead of zooming).

You can also use Ctrl + mouse wheel to adjust the zoom.

Ah, so that is what is happening.
Neat.
(And at some point, I was even going to ask if the columns couldn't resize themselves automatically.)
