11.5 border around toolbars GUI bug

Post by robc » Wed Jun 13, 2007 6:16 pm

Straight from the beta forum, since it wasn't dealt with before final release: http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?t=19636

Yup, I still have it too. Can anyone else confirm this?

Visibility of the issue greatly depends on the skin background and the Windows theme, so to check if you're affected it's best to put Avant in Compact mode and use a plain background, darker than gray.

I don't have borders, only one in compact mode but I guess this is intended.
Thanks Anderson for checking out my AB 11.0 feature request list,
now it's time to go on with 11.8:

Did you look at the screenshots I provided in the original beta thread, linked in the first post, and try with the background I suggested? also, please reapply your skin in compact mode when you see the border: does it disappear? if it does, then it's a confirmation of you experiencing the bug, too.

You mean lighter than gray right?

Ah now I see it, except Crystal (and my own, probably I just don't see it) every skin has it.

No, I really meant darker than gray (since the border is light, it's easier to spot it with darker background, it stands out more). Crystal is the theme with which I see it most, with my current background. Changing style (AthenX or Dream, for example) the border slightly changes color to a different gray, which makes me think it's somehow related to the style.

This is what it happens, both in normal and compact mode, with a skin based on crystal where only the top background has been changed, with a plain 20x20 bitmap of a solid RGB(185,209, 234). Note that the border is not a 3D border, but a 1-pixel light-colored rectangle surrounding all tool and menu bars and excluding the title bar and client area. Before somebody asks, this happens on different PCs, with or without standard Windows themes.

When Avant starts

- normal

- compact

Whenever the skin is applied or re-applied

-normal

Image

- compact

Having been with us since beta (and up to the current "silent 11a"), this bug should be moved to "confirmed bugs", shouldn't it? bigC, Sara, ADukes and myself at least have noticed it (I'm sure others also do but don't notice it, since it's very "skin-dependent")...

EDIT: I checked the "confirmation" criteria topic and this definitely falls under it, so I moved it to the "Confirmed Bugs" section myself.

By now you'll have seen the Announcement; yesterday, while checking for SRs, I found out build 12 had just been released... :wink:

Moved this to resolved.
