FS#11400 - Text Viewer Problems #2...

*sigh*…where to begin….

1) When scrolling through pages there are sometimes different colored bars flashing in the right corner. Might be caused by changing foreground and background colors without restart. I’ve only had this happen once. I have not done any testing on this issue.

2) Trying to scroll up on the first page or down on the last causes weird text shading problems. Hard to explain.

3) Biggest issue: This randomly happens I’ve no clue why. I think it might be because when you set a bookmark it moves the text. (Unsure)
The last sentence of a page sometimes gets chopped and doesn’t show up on the next page. Sometimes the last sentence of a page shows up on the next page too.
I can get the text to show up sometimes if I keep scrolling between the pages, disappear too.

I’ve no idea how to reproduce these expect #2. #1 might be because of the colors so, I think it can be reproduced. #3 is purely random so far.

New text viewer is nice but, it comes with so many problems…

EDIT: Reported version = daily build, r26834

Reason for closing:  Fixed

I'm sorry. I forgot to set the information.
Category: Plugins
Reported version: Daily build: r26834

I confirmed Similar problem.
Please wait for a while until correcting it.

I send patch.
But your problems (some/all?) might still occur. please confirm.

1) get the source r26997 (not latest version!!)
2) copy apps/plugins/text_viewer/* to other folder.
3) get the latest source
4) copy 2) to the latest version's apps/plugins/text_viewer/.
5) apply my patch.
6) build

I've never tried to set up rockbox before. I will have to use the wiki.
I probably won't be able to get back to you for a few days. I'm watching my sister's place right now.

r27045 Fixed the text shading and colored bars problems.
Sentence chopping is still there.
I can't seem to get the compiler working, wiki is a bit confusing.
If you could build r26997 with the patch for Nano 2G, post a link, I'll test it.

comment and confirmation thanks.

some problems might have changed because the text viewer is modified since r27138. (but it is may not to be improved at all…)

I'm not getting the sentence chopping anymore. I haven't tested it too much, but so far no problems.
Using r27143

Problem #3 seems to be gone. Thank you.
I have one last thing. The color of Page Number is always white (#FFFFFF). I would like it to be the same color as foreground.
Example: I have my foreground color set to a grayish white and my brightness is set to 10. With those settings Page number really sticks out.
It can be distracting. This is more of a request than asking you to fix something.

This FS can be closed. All bugs were fixed.
