Playlist columns missing

Bug Description

In the 1.10 build from 11/1/11 or so, the "#" column is missing. It's in the list of choices for columns, but whether it's selected or not, it does not appear in the UI. As a result, I can't sort my playlist into "playlist order" anymore. I looked around, and it appears that I can't enable the Location, Comment, or Key columns either, although a quick check of a previous 1.10 release shows that these last three columns weren't working before, either.

Running on Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit
Core i7, quad 1.73ghz
NVidia 310M, Realtek onboard audio

I've found the column, it was merely collapsed to 0 pixels. I don't know how it got that way, though. I guess that's probably what has happened to the other columns I mentioned, but haven't "found" them yet to expand them back out.

Hrm, sounds like we should prevent columns from shrinking to under a certain width. maybe 5 px?

Mel Grubb (melgrubb) wrote :

Or interpret any shrink to 0 as a "turn this column off". Maybe both: anything between 1 and 5 would shrink to a minimum of 5, but actually shrinking it to 0 would just turn it off. It's not totally intuitive what's going on at first, but at least when you go to add columns back in they'd be visible.

The minimum section size is set to -1. this causes QT to limit the size to globalStrut, a minimum Size for all GUI elements.
It seems that on Win7 this value is not properly set or the minimum section size was accidentally set to 0 in the header state restored from database.

The attached patch limits the minimum section size to 20. With this minimum size the three tiny dots are displayed at least.
Just for convenient, I have enabled cascadingSectionResizes as well.

Thanks Daniel -- this will be nice for people who get stuck this way.
