Thread Two problems with EWB2 build 10
Sun, May 31 2015 8:17 AMPermanent Link

A.Kyr

I started moving a working appl from v.1 to v2 using build 10.
1st problem: There is an outline of images whatever choises i do ( no border visible at all, border's color white etc) in Chrome. In Firefox and IE everything seems ok
2nd problem: Even if i check the option Deploy on Run in Project Options/Deployment page the deploy doesn't done automatically with run. I have to manually do Deploy from Project menu.

Are these known problems/bugs of i miss something?

Thanks in advance

I reported that some time ago - it seems to be a Chrome specific
problem. As a workaround use a TBasicPanel instead of a TImage component
and set the Background.Image property.

Thanks for the reply/info.
Have we to wait for a solution by Tim or it is supposed a chrome bug and so a solution will not be provided?

I don't have any special knowledge so following is just my opinion and
could be completely wrong.

Tim will likely try to fix it (as he does for most browser
incompatibilities) but since there is a workaround this likely is not a
high priority at this time for him.

He does need to get the docs finished and EWB v2 released so that will
take priority.

Hence it's your call how long you're willing to wait for fix vs
implementing a workaround.

A.,

BTW: if you use the URL property instead of assigning a background
image, there will be no borders.

Please send me a sample project that reproduces this.  I'm not seeing
anything like this here.

Which web server is selected in the IDE ?  It can't be the Internal Web
Server - there's nothing to deploy in such a case.  It has to be set to an
external web server (defined in the Environment Options):

I don't remember this (not unusual), and can't reproduce anything like it
here using the latest Chrome and build 10.  If I just pop a TImage on a
form, set all of its borders to Visible=False, set its URL to point to a
PNG, add the PNG file to the project as an external file, and run the
project in Chrome, everything looks fine and there aren't any borders.

Hi Tim.
Image Problem: It happens when you select a PNG file (not assign a URL) and only in Chrome
Deploy Problem: Yes, I am using an external WebServer. I have set the following options
in Project Options / Deployement page:
Deployment Method: Copy
Deploy on Run: Yes
(not Compressed output in Compilation page)
I press F9 to compile and run.
I suppose that the deployment had to be done, but not.
If i manually select Deploy selection from Project menu, deployment is ok

Env: Windows7 64 bit & EWB2 build 10

Regards

I'm glad to hear that also you forgot something. SmileI am forgetting
things every day.

The issue occurs when you set the Background.Image property of a TImage,
it does *not* occur with the URL property.

If you don't see it, I'll look for the project I sent you.

Ahh, yes, that appears to be a Chrome rendering issue:

Are you seeing any messages to the effect of "Copied xxxx to xxxxx...." in
the messages panel at the bottom of the IDE ?

I'm seeing the deployment here, but it's *very* fast for copies, so the
deployment dialog simply blinks during a run.
