Closed Bug 1043518 Opened 6 years ago Closed 6 years ago
Typing a long message or contact-name in SMS app will push the "send" / "add contact" buttons offscreen
STR: 1. Open SMS app 2. Tap the "new message" icon near upper-right 3. Type "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa..." [etc] until you overflow the available horizontal space ACTUAL RESULTS: The "+" / "Send" button at the right of the field is pushed offscreen. This is likely due to bug 984711 / bug 1037177 establishing a minimum size for flex items, based (in part) on the item's min-content size. We can override it by using "min-width:0" in the right place (on the flex item that contains these text fields). (Alternately, setting a "max-width" or "width" would also work, as would putting "overflow-x: scroll", per http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-flexbox/#min-size-auto -- but those changes would all be more likely to affect the layout in other ways.) Discovered when trying to repro bug 1042887 in up-to-date gaia with latest b2g desktop build from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/b2g/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/.
This patch fixes the issue (in both the contact box and the message-body box), though it's a bit heavy-handed (targeting all elements). Really this should just be on 2 specific CSS rules, probably. (I just don't know which exact 2 yet.)
We can probably handle it along with bug 1042887. The SMS team can take it from here if you want!

Sounds good to me! Let me know if you need any more from me here.
Actually, with the method in bug 1042887 comment 13, I was able to quickly track down the flex items that need "min-width:0" using firefox's devtools, so I'll go ahead and take this. Pull request: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/pull/22127

Updated the pull request with that change. Thanks!
Since it's r+, feel free to merge yourself Daniel! Or set checkin-needed if you don't have the rights, when you're ready :)
Thanks! I don't believe I have merge rights for mozilla's github projects (or if I do, I wouldn't trust myself to use them properly, w/ my current git/github comfortability). :) Hence, using checkin-needed.
