boa 0.6.1 does not act as said in tutorial :(

  • Hello, I tried to follow the tutorial,

    but I see, I get the same problem as people here
    (I also use Ubuntu) --
    there seems  just no way to get
    Click to edit the value of 'Fields'. The field will show a button with '+++'. Click the button. This opens the 'Collection Editor'.

    if I start form terminal, I see, that
    before this step some errors start

    Log tail:
    importing ZopeLib.ZopeExplorer
    importing ZopeLib.ZopeViews
    opening in Editor:
    opening in Editor:
    showing main frames

    ** (python:2605): CRITICAL **: draw_box_gap: assertion `height >= -1' failed

    I have boa 0.6.1-4 , dependant on python-wxgtk2.6  and  python-central (>= 0.6.6)

    • I can not recreate your problem.

      While I think that the Inspector window has some major layout problems on Ubuntu I can get to the fields collection editor by clicking on the "area" where I should see the buttons.

      I believe a lot of these problems have to do with wxGTK and that a lot of Boa is not using sizers internally (i.e. in its own code).

      By the way I am on wxPython (gtk2-unicode) on Ubuntu 7.04.

      Sorry probably not very helpful for you.
