#9 "Tasks" makes status area too tall - No scrollbar

addons (12)
Jon Senior

The tasks "window" sets it's height to the required size to contain all the tasks, but doesn't implement a scroll bar which means that the only way of viewing all tasks is to enlarge the status area. When this happens, all the other plugins in the status area ("Status", "Compiler", "Messages", etc) end up too tall as well.

To replicate: Create a file with a large number of TODO lines in it.

    Attached a ten minute hack to add a scrollbar. Scrollbar code copied from geany trunk:/src/interface.c... I normally code in Java, C is not my strong point.

    Patch tested and appears to work, but may not be clean. Please verify before applying it.

    Hope this helps.

    As part of the rewrite of the Tasks Addon, this has been fixed.
    Thanks for reporting and for the patch anyways.
