Summary0002272: QuantitySpinbox sets wrong sizeHint
when there is no expression icon in the quantityspinbox the code sets wrong sizehint. Screenshot attached. It does not happen with all styles. This screenshot is from latest KDE Plasma. QuantitySpinBox.cpp lines 253 and 254.

Steps To Reproduce1. Run FreeCAD with ./FreeCAD -style motif
2. Create new document.
3. Open "Part Design" WB.
4. Create new sketch.

The value in quantity spinbox in "Choose orientation dialog" is partially hidden.

Could you try moving those two lines (253-254) into the bind(...) function below, to see if that helps?

Hi eivindkvedalen!

Yes this works. And as far as I can tell it does not break anything. E.g. resizing a dialog with expression icon keeps the icon padded and it does not cover the input value.

Thanks for the expression feature! :)

Can you try with the latest changes? Quite a lot things have changed in the meantime.

Hi wmayer!
Commit 98ed315b2d129abb0fe63629fc697347d9ba17de solves this issue. But I think it creates a new one.

The expression icon can now cover the value in the input field.

This image shows the old behaviour: dialog_good_old.png

This image shows the new bahaviour: dialog_wrong_new.png

If it is not a bug then this issue may be closed.



PS. The fix suggested by eivindkvedalen works ok and does not create this new issue.

Does moving the lines 248 - 256 + 258 into the bind() method solve this issue?

OK, I can see this behaviour on Windows and Ubuntu, too. However, this is not a bug because a line edit doesn't expand itself to fit the whole text.

The only question is if you get the truncated text when you open the dialog or do you have to actively shrink the dialog. In the latter case this can be closed, in the former case it would be good to make the initial size bigger by the width of the icon.

When I test ./FreeCAD -style motif then dialog is big enough to not truncate the text.
