Summary0018220: lazarus call stack, locals, watch list - horizontal scroll broken in gtk2
DescriptionWhen I view the lazarus call stack, locals, or watch list windows, there is a horizontal scrollbar visible. However even when the window contents extend far beyond the edge of the window, the scrollbar is shown as if there was nothing to scroll, and cannot be used.
TagsNo tags attached.

Can you ensure that the last column of the grid, actually extends behind the width of the Window?

By Default the GTK2 grid does align exactly with the window. So the content is cut off because the column size is set to narrow..
Resizing the window resizes the column size too.

The scrollbar only reflects if the columns fir in the window, not if the content fits in the columns.

Did you grab the column sizer at the right of the last column and extended the column, so it became bigger than the visible Window?

This works here.

ah, I see. I had tried that before but had been unable to do it. There is just a 1 pixel space where it can be done, and the mouse cursor does not change to indicate it. It took me about 5 tries to get it just now.

In any case, this is still extremely user-unfriendly.

Spreadsheet programs often have a way to expand column width to fit contents. Something similar would be appropriate here. Auto-expanding the rightmost column would by nifty.

Yes, sizing can be improved (Auto sizing / remember sizs / ...)

As for the "to small grab area" for the column separator and the missing change to the mouse cursor: This should be reported as a new issue with the grid itself (LCL/Widgetset gtk2)

I filed three separate reports for the relevant issues, so this issue can be closed.

for reference:

grabbing column separators - no mouse cursor change

rightmost column separator difficult to grab

double clicking column separator should auto expand to fit contents
