Build 2000-02-28-08M15: Linux 6.0 Overview: Account Wizard's Server dialog has text that is cut on the right margin. There is plenty of space for the text to display, it just needs to wrap better. - The paragraph that starts with "For multiple mail accounts, only one outgoing server needs to be specified. For most Internet Service Provi", appears on one line and then stops, it doesn't continue displaying or wrapping the rest of the line. - The next paragraph that start with "If you change the account you use to connect to the Internet or if you know that you can use your SMTP", appears on one line and then stops, it doesn't continue displaying or wrapping the rest of the line.
Is this just a display problem? ...or does the server name get mangled?
this is just a layout problem. reassigning to... trudelle? this is an HTML DIV inside XUL... I'll also CC hyatt If there's a better tag I should be using, let me know. This is for a long paragraph that needs to word-wrap, so <text> or <titledbutton> is not apppropriate.
I'll let hyatt determine if it is XUL or should go to layout.
Cap the width to make the div wrap. XUL bug.
Alecf, did hyatt use enough words for you to understand what he meant? :-)
hyatt, I assume you mean put some kind of width on the div... I'll try making it the same width as the IFRAME, but it seems like layout should be doing this automatically... it actually seems like it's TRYING but there's some rounding error since it's only cutting of a few characters.
oh wait it doesn't wrap either. let me play with this.
ok, so I don't know why this isn't wrapping, because lots of other divs in this dialog do. hyatt, any clues? look at aw-server.xul
Putting on PDT- for beta1.
I have a fix which is low risk, and this looks REALLY unprofessional - this isn't just polishing, this is sand- please try it if you don't believe me... just follow the creation of an account to the third page. removing PDT for reeval
and the account setup is one of the first places a new user sees and makes his impression of our product.
fix checked in. thanks
Build 2000-03-01-08M15: NT4, Mac 8.5.1 Reopen. It's better but not quite right. 1. NT and Mac: A couple of letters are being cropped on the right margin referring to "SMTP" and "connect". 2. NT, Linux and Mac: Also notice that the Netscape graphic in the top right is cropped. Not as much on Linux.
Will become PDT- on 3/3
those are minor details. the major problem has been fixed.... because this is PDT+, I'm marking this fixed, I can fix the aesthetics of this after beta.
This is good enough for now so verifying. I will look at the Wizard dialogs again after beta.
