#676 Brx/Arx ControlBar - SetWidth function

Dan Wiseman

Both arx and brx - dcl_Control_SetWidth function is not working correctly. Paste (dcl_Control_SetWidth BrxControlBarTest_ControlBarTest1 200) to test. NB This issue appears to affect AutoCAD too.

See "BrxControlBarTest" project

    Note that you cannot set width of a docked control bar, because a docked control bar is sized by the control bar's docking host (and that size will depend on what else is docked inside the same host). I don't see any problem in AutoCAD, but Bricscad exhibits several incorrect behaviors. For example, in Bricscad, SetWindowPos() does not change the size of a floating control bar host window.

    Hi Owen,
    The SetWidth function still fails when the ControlBar is floating in Bricscad.
    NB The bug now occurs in Autocad too.

    This should now be fixed in AutoCAD. In Bricscad, there's some buggy behavior that causes the outer window to not resize. If Bricsys doesn't fix it, I'll have another look to see if I can hack a workaround.

    Tested with ODCL Runtime and Bricscad 13.1.20

    Problem persists.

    Tested on AutoCAD 2012 too. Works fine.

    This is still not fixed as of Bricscad v14.2.06.
