Hi,

I've noticed that the panel management in EDG can sometimes become "confused".  I've encountered several scenarios and I've documented one here.

In the first screenshot below, I have added a SPARQL query panel to a Data Asset Collection view and maximized the size of the browser window.  I did not tell the browser to go full screen.  I just didn't include the browser tabs, etc... in the screenshot.  Notice how everything fills the available space.

With the screen looking as above, I took one action - clicking from the SPARQL results tab back to the SPARQL query tab causing the panels to resize by significantly shrinking the size of each panel.  This consistently happens when I click between panels.

A couple of other observations:
  • This happens even if the window is not maximized to fill the screen.  
  • The only way to get the panels to be larger, is to resize the browser larger but once you click to a new panel, they will immediately shrink again.  I cannot manually drag the right-most or bottom edges of the SPARQL window.
  • This example was done at 4K resolution because it visually portrays the most dramatic difference but it happens on a standard HD monitor as well.
I'm on Windows 10, using TBC-ME 6.4.1 and Chrome.  I'm happy to provide additional details if needed.

Hi Tim,

thanks for the report. We are aware of issues with this layout manager. We use a 3rd party component

https://golden-layout.com/

which doesn't seem to have been updated for a few years. As browsers evolve further, and layout management is quite a fundamental capability, I am not surprised it doesn't work perfectly anymore. At some stage we likely need to look into replacing this component. I have no immediate fix for you but a typical work-around is to resize the browser to force a re-layout.

Thanks
Holger

Resurrecting this issue again because it is still a significant issue, especially when using the SPARQL panel.  The layout is re-sized (as originally described) with nearly every query execution and other clicks between panels.

I reported the issue with version 6.4 in 2020, I'm seeing the same behavior with 7.3.  Is there any timeline for a fix?

Hi Tim,

I am currently in the process of replacing the layout manager with a more up-to-date and more readily maintained option. This is expected to be completed in time for the 7.4 release.  

Hope it helps,
Pat

Thanks for the update Pat!  I'm looking forward to the improvements.  It will make using a 4k monitor much better.  I'm happy to beta test if needed.

Tim
