Description

  • On OS X, when choosing or typing in a Type, there isn't enough vertical space and characters can be hard to read.
  • The default horizontal space is too short to show a number of the default options.

History

#1 Updated by Derik Barseghian over 7 years ago

Also, why is "xmltoken" an option in the list? For double you enter "double", not DoubleToken, etc.

Good points!

  • On OS X, when choosing or typing in a Type, there isn't enough vertical space
    and characters can be hard to read.
  • The default horizontal space is too short to show a number of the default
    options.

I modified ptolemy/actor/gui/PortConfigurerDialog.java and made the width of
the type column wider and the height of the rows greater.

Also, why is "xmltoken" an option in the list? For double you enter "double",
not DoubleToken, etc.

I modified ptolemy/data/expr/Constants.java and changed "xmltoken" to "xml".

The port dialog could use some work, but that would be more of an enhancement
than a bug fix.

I'm leaving this bug for Derik to close or to change to an enhancement.
