Bug report #48
GRASS Digit: attribute window moves around not asked to
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Debian||Easy fix?:||No|

Please prevent the attribute window from jumping around
- it often jumps to the most top-left location,
covering the layer tree and forcing me to move it back
from there to the location of my choice; then it will
jump back to cover the layer tree...

Yes, with 0.7.4 SVN about 3 weeks old.
Is it realy related to QGIS, was not it window manager problem?
Dunno. Using Ubuntu Breezy with GNOME.
I could never reproduce such a behaviour.
Does it happen also with current HEAD version?
Haven't tried due to lack of QT 4.1. For Breezy only QT 4.0 is
packaged, which I heard is problematic with QGIS 0.7.9.
What do I do in order to install QT 4.1 on Breezy without hacking too
much? I wouldn't mind building from source unless it is fairly
straightforward. Having qt 4.1 I could help with testing.

Yes. Easy to reproduce:
1. Open a Grass vector.
2. Pick "Edit table".
Do you mean 'Edit attributes'?
3. Left click some object.
4. Table pops up. Edit it as needed, move to lower-right corner.
5. Click another object. All fine. Click another one - and the table
jumps to top right corner. Bad table.
Sorry, I have no idea, the position is stored whenever the attributes
dialog is closed (deleted) and restored when a new one is created
(another element selected).
Do you have the same problem when new elements are digitized?
BTW: I have maybe similar problem with edit region dialog,
move() is called but somehow ignored.

I added debug output. Whenever you select an element
you should see in terminal something like
wx = 200 wy = 406
The values are then used in move(wx,wy); to set windows position.
Check if these values are correct.

Please try with fresh SVN. I have changed widget style
and it could work. I think that the problem was that certain
widget styles calls adjustSize after move.
I have also changed it so that the window is not closed always
when a new element is selected, that should make it more pleasant.
