I just fixed a subtle bug in the HR frame where a rounding error was causing an off-by-one measuring error. On my system, p2t=15.00000 according to the debugger, but the code: nscoord(pt2) returns 14, not 15. So I replaced nscoord(p2t) with nscoord onePixel = NSIntPixelsToTwips(1, p2t); // get the rounding right which gives the intended answer of 15 (on my system.) You may want to inspect nsGfxTextControlFrame2::CalculateSizeStandard(), which uses the cast rather than the macro. This won't show up on Windows because of an #ifdef _WIN32
Yes, I struggled with this, but I thought I got it right, I will take a look. Thanks

Yes, it isn't working right, needs to be fixed. nominating. here is the diff: Index: nsGfxTextControlFrame2.cpp =================================================================== RCS file: /cvsroot/mozilla/layout/html/forms/src/nsGfxTextControlFrame2.cpp,v retrieving revision 1.93 diff -r1.93 nsGfxTextControlFrame2.cpp 1354c1354,1355 < charWidth = nscoord((float(charWidth) / p2t) + 0.5)*nscoord(p2t); --- > nscoord onePixel = NSIntPixelsToTwips(1, p2t); // get the rounding right > charWidth = nscoord((float(charWidth) / float(onePixel)) + 0.5)*onePixel;

r=buster. right thing to do, very low risk.

[buster|rods|mjudge], how would you suggest I verify? Is this something that is easily viewed in a webdoc? Thanks! -kritzer

nope, this is a code-level fix, and it would take longer to fabricate a specific test case than it's worth. The test case would depend on your platforms pixel/twip ratio, crap like that. I'm verifying.

No, just take buster's word on it.
