flaws/suggestions for lcl (0.9.29)
« on: October 24, 2010, 03:01:11 am »
here are a few suggestions/complaints from me, off the top of my head. i'll try to add more when i remember something.  my lazarus version is (at this moment).

flaw - stringgrid border - win32 widgetset
stringgrid border flickers on resize (unless flat property is set but we don't want that)

flaw - form border on kde4 (posibly other window managers)
form borderstyle bsDialog does nothing under kde4 (gtk2 widgetset) - nothing good that is - form gets the xwindows icon and that's it (still resizable (also with bsSingle), border icons still there).

flaw - message dialogs on kde4 (gtk2 widgetset)
in addition to having a sizable border (see previous paragraph), message dialogs (invoked by MessageDlg function) also sport an ugly crisp icon. isn't it time lazarus said NO to bitmapped images / icons / button glyphs?

Please report bugs to the bugtracker at with as many information necessary (example programs) to reproduce them. This will make sure they will not be forgotten.

Patches are of course welcome too :-)
