Description Lawrence Lim 2005-05-12 05:33:24 UTC
Description of problem:
For all CJKI, users are required to select candidates from the candidate window.
In evolution, this candidate window is always positioned at 0,0. As a result, it
obstruct users from seeing what was typed earlier. It would be ideal if the
candidate window is positioned below the cursor.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 evolution
2.Go to calendar
3.Select 12 AM in the widget
4.ctrl-space to activate LE
5.type: sushi <space> <space>
6.observe the position of the candidate window

Actual results:
candidate window block the user from seeing what was typed earlier

Expected results:
candidate window positioned below the cursor

Additional info:
Tested with iiimf-12.2-3

Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2005-05-20 07:05:48 UTC
I spent some times to fix this problem. but I have no idea ATM, because EText
itself doesn't have a GdkWindow and it's being rendered on the parent GdkWindow.
Basically Input Method gets a position from gtk_im_context_set_cursor_location()
and location of client window which was set by
gtk_im_context_set_client_window(). so generally you just need to consider the
relative position of cursor at the widget with gtk_im_context_set_cursor_location.
But on EText, where it's rendering depends on the behavior of the parent widget.
EText could gets its position from the parent widget, but it won't work properly
because the parent widget is in the scrolled widget and EText itself can't
assume that.

Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2005-06-17 23:53:08 UTC
Has this been filed upstream?

Comment 4 Lawrence Lim 2005-06-20 06:37:32 UTC
Yes and I have included it in the External Bugzilla References section in our bz
towards the bottom of the page.

As seen in the attached screenshot, the typed text is clearly visible. Lawrence,
can you please reconfirm this.

Apparently you are confused. this is saying that the candidate window doesn't
follow at the bottom of the cursor.

Comment 12 Satyabrata Maitra 2006-06-20 12:23:49 UTC
This bug is not fixed yet. It still exists. Candidate window is not appearing at
the bottom of the cursor. Tested on the package versions :


Tested on O.S. : Fedora Core Release 5.89 (Rawhide) i386.
