#295 Statusbar Does not Turn Red on Error with Windows L&F

No

DrJava Version : 20040326-2216

Windows XP Pro:

When I enable the windows L&F and run a junit test
where at least one test fails, the status bar still
remains green at the end of the test. (It turns red in
the default L&F). This may be a swing issue and not an
us issue. I think it is indeed important though
because we dont want people thinking their code is
passing unit tests when in fact something is failing.

    With both the stable release you mentioned using and the
    current snapshot of CVS, I can't reproduce the bug. With a
    single test file where the first test passes and the second
    test fails, the proper behavior occurs in both the Windows
    L&F and the Windows Classic L&F.
    Can you provide the test class you were using when the bug
    occured?

    I agree that the bug is not present in the classic L&F on my
    box. Did you try running on Windows XP? Keep in mind that
    the L&F variant changes between Windows9X/Windows2000 and
    WindowsXP, which makes me think this may be a Sun issue.

    I can not give you the classes that produce this error
    (company code) but I will try and craft similar classes on
    my box that also produce this behavior and send them to you.

    The problem seems to only occur when the Windows display
    appearance is set to Windows XP Style in Display Properties.
    If the Windows and buttons style is set to Windows Classic
    style then the bug is not evident. This does not appear to
    be a bug in DrJava itself, bug instead is either an effect
    of XP overriding the color of the status bar or a bug in the
    JVM. We should either see if we can find a workaround so
    that it functions correctly or file the bug report with Sun
    so that they can produce a more correct JVM for Windows that
    will properly overlay the bitmap on the statusbar.

    I agree. My money was on Sun when I first saw the error. I
    have no idea how to file a bug with Sun though...

    I thought there was already a report of this, but I can't
    find it. I remember seeing it last summer when 1.4.2 first
    introduced the Windows XP L&F. As a side-note, the Windows
    L&F is the Windows Classic L&F when you're not using pretty
    XP-ness in Windows.

    Anyway, this is closer to being a "feature" of Windows
    XP-looking progress bars -- you'll note that they all look
    like that in Windows. It's an effect of the fact that Luna
    is used to render the appearance of the progress bars; the
    little green things are actually bitmaps, I believe. There
    is a bug report at Sun
    (http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=5047032).
    Sun has closed it, saying that it's not a bug, which it
    arguably is not. There's some code in the bug report that
    shows how to change the bitmaps that get used to paint the
    progress bars, but we decided last summer the issue wasn't
    serious enough to do all that hacking for. If you guys want
    to, go ahead and poke through the Windows branch to add some
    code to fix that stuff. It'd be kinda nice, but be careful
    to test on a win2k machine and ideally a win9x machine as
    well, as the XP L&F will not ever appear there (though I
    think the code is the same).

    It works now. In the windows xp LAF, that specific progress
    bar looks the same as in the metal LAF. This change will
    take effect in the next stable release of drjava in mid August.
