Description

Several errors are noted when I change window sizes (maximized to not-maximized): 1) the LegendTool size does not change in proportion to the chart to which it is pinned, 2) placement with respect to the chart is distorted, and 3) titles become cut off and don't wrap. I've included images (both maximized and not-maximized).

History

#1 Updated by Andy Dufilie over 5 years ago

We don't support pinning a window to another window right now. It's actually pinning it to the desktop in that position, and in that respect, it does behave correctly because it uses percentage coordinates. The margins do not use percentage coordinates -- is that what you want to do?

#2 Updated by Andy Dufilie over 5 years ago

If you want to see the wrapped color legend title, you need to change the top margin to something larger.

#3 Updated by Mike Smyser over 5 years ago

We should go with to percentage coordinates, if that's what it will take to stablize these visualizations (i.e., make look right), since users are going to routinely view these items when maximized and in different window sizes. As it is now, the distortions are very distracting.

#4 Updated by Andy Dufilie over 5 years ago

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
  • Subject changed from ColorBinLegendTool does not resize correctly when pinned to a chart or graph (size is distorted, placement is altered, titles don't wrap) to Allow tool margin size to be specified in percentage coordinates
  • Category set to Visualization Interface
  • Complexity set to Medium

#5 Updated by Mike Smyser over 5 years ago

When I change the Tool margin wrapping does occur. However, when I go from maximized to a reduced window setting, the title gets cut off and does not fully display, no matter how large I make the margin. Is this due to not having the percentage coordinates or is this a bug?

#6 Updated by Andy Dufilie over 5 years ago

The title doesn't wrap.
