Size change

Hello, I am uploading a video of the operation of WFview on my desktop.
The following happens to me:
When I resize the WFview screen to fit the rest of the apps it works fine, and when I shut down and start the program it respects the size decision.
But when I go to the settings tab, the screen size gets bigger, which wouldn’t be a nuisance, but then I don’t want to get smaller to go back to the previous size. Bigger yes, but smaller no.
If I save changes, which I have to do if I’ve touched any of the settings, I have to close the program and open it again, without going into settings, and then I can resize correctly, and save changes again.

Why does it get bigger when going to settings? And why doesn’t she want to become small afterwards?

Hi Jordi,

That is a bug for sure. I believe it was introduced when we added support for radios without waterfall display. This made us need to manually set some sizes sometimes and clearly we didn’t get it 100%. I’ve run into similar issues when I’m working satellites and I can’t get wfview to be the size I want!

The fix is more complicated than it should be. I’d definitely like some ideas if anyone has experience with qt window resize tricks when changing tabs.

Keep up the DX!

I think it’s the audio dropdown that takes the width of the longest name and stretches the entire screen. Maybe the length of the dropdown could be limited. I don’t know much about QT, and I don’t know how it could be done. or make the 2 audios in 2 lines…

Yes this is one of the issues. Funnily enough, we were discussing this yesterday and talked about limiting the size of the comboboxes. It should be possible.
