Title: WPS: Why no scrolling line after subline possible?
Post by: oid_maps on October 07, 2014, 05:23:03 AM
Am I doing something wrong, or is it a bug, that when I put a scrolling line just after a line containing sublines, the scrolling freezes after the first change of sublines?

The following does not work:
Code: [Select]
# Two sublines:
Text1;Text2
# A long line, scrolling:
%sA very long text which is meant to scroll because it is longer than the screen is wide.
# Another line of just text (Not needed to reproduce the bug, but if it is swapped with
# the long line above, the long line scrolles correctly):
Textline.
#### Here the following Bug appears:
# When the Line 'Text1;Text2' changes the sublines the first time, the subsequent line
# stops scrolling. It happens when the sublines change; as when you use
# '%t(5)Text1;Text2', the scrolling stops only after 5 seconds, when the sublines
# actually change.

The following works:
Code: [Select]
# Two sublines:
Text1;Text2
# Another line of just text. Needed to make the long line scrolling correctly:
Textline.
# A long line, scrolling:
%sA very long text which is meant to scroll because it is longer than the screen is wide.
#### Here the bug does not appear, the long line scrolls corretly. But when the long
#     scrolling line is put just below the line with the sublines, it stops scrolling as
#     soon as the sublines change for the first time.

Tested with Sansa Fuzev2 simulator version d392da8-140922, build from git on a 64 bit Linux system.
