Description PJ 2013-01-24 10:46:33 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
Be on a slow connection so you can see the dialog for more than a half second
Activate a license

Expected behavior: 
dialog should appear with all items in place

Actual behavior:
Spinner widget is cut off.

I only noticed this when watching a screencast from 360logica, I never see the dialog for more than a split second myself.

Look at the 0:17 mark here: http://www.screencast.com/t/mIa923cLC

filed against 1.0.755

Best person to confirm that is Alan or Jeremie - they'll definitely assign it back if you're wrong! :D

That being said guys, note that this is marked as V2 - most users will never see this for more than a second so there are higher priority bugs for the release unless it's a trivial fix.

We are not setting a height for that dialog so it seems like an Xwt issue wrt Sizing. Maybe the WPF backend doesn't advertise its bounds properly?

Punting to Lluis as a low priority item.

*wrt Spinner
Comment 5 Dominique Louis 2013-06-03 18:31:43 UTC
Any further info Lluis?
Comment 6 PJ 2013-07-09 03:35:07 UTC
It's still there, just was punted to the elusive 'V2'. Punting to 1.6.x for now.

Gonna add it to the ever-growing 'papercuts' tag, as it's a visual papercut.

With the new activation dialogs that issue has been side-stepped. Closing.
Comment 8 Mohit Kheterpal 2013-11-13 09:09:30 UTC
Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

VS 2013
X.Android 4.10.01068
MTVS 1.8.360

Now spinner is not truncated as shown in screencast.

Screencast : http://www.screencast.com/t/CFAF7BVO

Hence closing this issue.
