Repeat click on any increment/decrement buttons breaks GUI

Postby Justyn » Wed May 10, 2017 2:40 pm

Hi,

On properties that have increment and decrement buttons like Trigger Threshold and Pre-Trigger, as well as things like Number of Samples. If I click more than once on the increment or decrement without leaving a pause in between it cycles to the absolute minimum (if I clicked decrement) or absolute maximum (if I clicked increment) and the value stays there and cannot be changed.

The workaround is to leave a pause between clicking the button again, but it is quite frustrating when I forget and have to restart the GUI.

System info:

Hi Justyn,

A new version of the software is due for release soon although I do not have tested this version yet.

Would it be possible for a trace.xml following the lock-up please?

Hitesh

Hi Hitesh,

The application doesn't lock up but rather the individual value (ie Trigger Threshold) becomes stuck - the rest of the software works but you cannot change that value.

Hi Justyn,

Would it be possible to provide a trace.xml file after closing down a session when this occurs?

Hi, attached is a trace.xml created using the demo device (no USB device plugged in).
On startup I clicked the "number of samples" decrement arrow twice, and it plummetted at high speed down to the minimum and stayed there.

Hi Justyn,

I've run a test on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS but not been able to repeat the issue.

Which Linux operating system are you using?

Hitesh

Hi Hitesh,

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, with latest updates, on a Intel Core i7 machine with standard built-in Intel graphics.

What is your test machine? Is it running natively or virtualised?

Hi Justyn,

Our setup is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS running natively on an Intel i7 processor with dedicated NVIDIA graphics card.

Are all your drivers up to date?

Yes, all graphics drivers up to date. Very strange.

Hi Justyn,

Sorry for the delay in coming back on this thread.

Have you tried using the latest version of the Mono runtime?

If you are still having issues, please e-mail support@picotech.com

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (KDE Neon)
Intel i7-2600K
Nvidia graphic card driver 375.66-0ubuntu0.16.04.1
Picoscope software version 6.11.13-4r3
