Description

18 years ago
Long profile names are getting drawn outside the box that displays all profiles
in the profile manager. The box should be allowed to grow as per the size of the
data.

check again on tomorrows build.

I just checked in some xul / css changes from german@netscape.com that may (or
may not) fix this.

4x Profile Manager allowed Max of 30 characters for the profile name on new
profiel creation. German's changes improves this by allowing 10 more characters,
covering majority of the cases (not anticipating many profile names with length
above 40). However, if the length goes above 40, the text gets drawn on the
dialog, spilling out of the box. That doesn't look nice. Ideally the box should
grow as needed.

Adding German to the cc list.

German,
Is there an automatic setting that grows the box (and the dialog) dynamically ?

The current display is valid and serves purpose for many cases.
Not a really high priority bug.
Moving the TFV to M14.

We should plan on setting a limit to the profile name.
Truncate the rest. Input field that takes the name should have a hard limit
on the number of characters that it takes in.

Adding UI tag to the summary line. Makes isolation of UI bugs easier.

Changing owner, Gayatri is not the correct owner for these.
Assignee: gayatrib → ben
currently the tree cell crops the profile name when it reaches a certain size. 
Now, this crop width is WRONG but that's a different bug (that is already filed 
;) So I'm closing this as fixed because long profile names are handled properly 
(cropped).
