Creation of custom rules is broken

Reported by: gigem Owned by: stuartm
Priority: critical Milestone: 0.25
Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head
Severity: high Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: yes


Creation of custom rules using the MENU key + "Custom Edit" option (as opposed to the "Custom Record" main menu item) is broken in multiple ways.

  1. The custom rule dialog is probably missing a background so the previous screen shows through making navigation very tricky.
  1. After creating a valid SQL clause and then pressing the "Test" button brings a ProgLister?, but it doesn't have a background either so the screen gets even messier.
  1. After creating a valid SQL clause and then pressing the "Record" button, the rule editor doesn't appear.
  1. In the SQL multi-line text entry box, the cursor is not positioned properly for wrapped text. The cursor behaves as if the text is all on one very long line instead of wrapped. FWIW, this happens when creating a custom rule from the main menu path too.

Which screen are you starting from? It shouldn't have any relevance but I can't reproduce all of these so ... Also need to know which theme?

The first two are almost definitely theme issues, although not present with Terra.

The third I can't reproduce at all, if the rule has both a title and valid SQL then the schedule editor appears. If the SQL is bogus an error dialog (mis-using the menu dialog) appears.

The fourth is a known problem, I haven't written the multiline text editor support yet so it's using a stretched single line edit. The intention was that I'd write this before the release, I've just been dragging my heals.

I see issues using Terra, Mythcenter-wide and Mythcenter. It looks like it might also be a focus issue in addition to theme/background issues.

Anyway, for one example, go to Manage Recordings / Schedule Recordings / Search Lists / Channels. Then choose a channel, then a show, press MENU and choose Custom Edit.

Ok, seems to be a bug in the Program Lister and no-where else that I've looked yet. The custom editor is being added to the wrong stack, easy fix.

(In [22096]) Add the CustomEdit? screen to the correct stack in the ProgLister?. Refs #7192

1 & 2 should be fixed, I can't reproduce 3 and 4 is a known problem.

I don't see 3 anymore.

If I go into the custom record, and begin adding code by hand, it will eventually crash completely. I shut down numerous times because my scheduled recording rules would appear as gone, and when attempting live TV it would say that the card is busy but not in use. eventually after many reboots they would reappear. I believe is is a lot more than just a theme issue, when the hard drive rev up like its being over worked and then it call comes crashing down..

We need a backtrace.

Replying to stuartm:

We need a backtrace.

Stuart, The main issue remaining is the multi-line edit so we can actually use the custom rule editor. I suspect the issue wilson.joe is having is probably local to him but we'll have a better idea when we can use this screen properly.

Paul, still aware of the need to finish the multi-line edit

Downgrading this because it was broken in 0.22 and it doesn't appear that anyone is working on this.

Obviously not getting touched for .23-- Not sure we'll see multi-line textedit for .24, either, but stuartm can change this if we aren't.

I'm stuck, the qt method we use for determining the text bounding box and cursor position doesn't work very well and it's not going to work at all for multiline text. I haven't had a better idea yet. QTextEdit remains a possibility but I've not had time to experiment with it and I'd use it only reluctantly, it's important that we don't sacrifice the basics of themability or have a widget which acts independently of mythui for input etc.

It's unlikely I'm going to get this done in the next two weeks but whatever I do come up with will be backported.

for what its worth, this problem happens in MythCenter? and Terra.

I'm assuming this one can be closed now we have a working multi-line edit.
