strange rendering on text field

Hi,

is this a known bug?

I'm on Mac Sierra with LiveCode Indy 8.1.6 (the latest).

The text inside the field is fine as I can use it to build a working html page;
only the rendering of the 1st line is wrong.

Here is a screenshot:

Hi Thierry.

This is possibly conflicting with the maximum pixel width: The field is shifting the overflow to left and is thus overwriting (as it is non-wrapped).

I have also seen such overflows. This could possibly be changed if you report it to QCC.

[If I remember right, the maximum line length in a normal field is 65535 bytes, so we have maximally 65535 div 2 = 32767 pixels available.]

Thanks Hermann,

Yes, I'm aware of this but might be another way to deal with this?

don't know...

In my case,
I don't care much as long as the content of the field is not altered
when transforming it.

Regards,

Thierry

Thierry,
you could think about putting the first line in a separate wrapping field.

You could also think about putting in returns (at least in that first line)
HTML handles cr as space. So inserting a cr instead of a space within a tag doesn't change the web display.

Good luck with your app!

Thanks but I wasn't asking for any kind of help, as I stated before.

As I found what I consider an anomaly (seen in the screenshot),
I just wanted to report it to the team in this forum named 'Bug triage'!
Good luck with your app!
MyApp was working fine before I've post the OP :)

Cheers,

Thierry

So try to deal with it -- or not -- in the way I suggested ;-)
And still "Good luck", with your working app ;-)

I meant and still believe LiveCode engine could deal with this in another way...

Danke :)
