Scrollbars not clipped against parent client rect

May 16, 2012 at 1:46 PM

Hi, I was just playing with the GuiExample and I noticed that if you start it, press tab twice, and scroll with the scrollbars on the middle window, you'll notice that the scrollbars of its content are drawn under/over its own scrollbars.

Here's a pic (worth a 1000 words :)) :

Anyway, I'd like to use Ruminate for my hobbyproject since it seems the best solution for me.
I read you're close to releasing a v2 update. Will that require major coderewrites if I start with the current version now ?

Yeah there a few issues like this which is why I haven't made an official release yet even though the code is nearly complete.

But go ahead and use the latest GIT commit. I'm finally happy with how I have the framework set up so very few if any upcoming changes are going to break anything and none will require any sort of significant rewrite. There a few minor bugs I need to fix in the skinning and rendering system (such as the one in the picture) and then my efforts will be dedicated to adding additional widgets.

I believe I fixed all scrollbar issues in the latest commit. Also added the ability to have button less scrollbars (Apple/Linux style). Tell me if you run into any issues.

Hi, one of the problems I'm running into in including Ruminate in my own project is that eventhough I reference GuiContent, it's not loaded and thus no renderers are found.
So I have to force loading of the dll like this before Skin can actually find any Renderers:

var loadedAssemblies = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetAssemblies().ToList();
var loadedPaths = loadedAssemblies.Select(a => a.Location).ToArray();
var referencedPaths = Directory.GetFiles(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory, "*.dll" ); 
var toLoad = referencedPaths.Where(r => !loadedPaths.Contains(r, StringComparer.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase)).ToList(); toLoad.ForEach(path => loadedAssemblies.Add(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Load(AssemblyName.GetAssemblyName(path))));

I've also added an assertion in the loop that's creating renderers like so :
if (c != null )
    WidgetMap.Add((equalsSplit[0]).Trim(), (

which immediately showed me you've forgotten to update the slider_bar definition in the default map.txt with the new buffer parameter so it can't be constructed ! Some more error-checking might be necessary :)

Anyway, keep up the good work.

Just as an update currently only the grey skin is currently supported. Other skins may cause errors similar to the above.
