Interesting. Is the window size stored in the .ini file?

When i downloaded 3.02, i simply switched out the two .exe's, and left everythng else the same. You think that had anything to do with it? I did think it was kinda strange, because that was one GUI you didn't modify... ::)

The size is calculated on the fly.

I've seen programs get screwed up by this due to using a different visual style in windows. Are you using a different theme Harbinger?

EDIT: Also, changing the DPI settings in windows can screw window layouts up. X)

I discovered that in fact 1.7.03.02 is using a new window style which has a restore and minimize/maximize button -- the previous one did not, which made the window smaller i guess. This is what's doing it.

No i'm not using a different theme within windows or mpt. I have not switched screen sizes either. I saw some of the settings in the .ini file and wondered if that controls what the window should look like.

Any suggestions?

Well yes, I've changed the window style, and I've actually tried to make the window itself bigger, but the channel manager sourcecode is horrible (worse than many other parts in the MPT code IMHO), and I couldn't quite manage to find out where to increase the window size properly. And nope, the INI settings won't change anything.

Channel Manager Chopping
« Reply #7 on: October 13, 2009, 17:09:42 »
Hmm, I am not exactly sure what is being hinted at here. I used one channel, 32 channels, 64 channels, and 127 channels and none of them seems to have the buttons chopped off (if that is Harbinger's problem).

The thing that confuses me though is the Store and Restore part. I am not sure what that means. Perhaps that is where the virtual channels come in, as I do not remember exactly what those are.

Harbinger's problem doesn't have anything to do with the number of channels, rather with different window styling (I remembered that you always to pay attention when resizing windows as this is also influenced by WinXP's Luna style or Vista).

Store/Restore simply stores the the current status of the channel manager, e.g. which channels are muted, or where which channel will be moved to.

Virtual channels don't have anything to do with that, those are used together with Impulse Tracker's new note actions.

I see an attempt was made to enlarge the window size. But, at least for XP, the buttons still lose about 2 or 3 pixels on the bottom. For now though, this bug is minor, since i can read the buttons i'm using.

The problem with the XP Luna style should be finally resolved now.
