Ugly bug inside the Calendar Week View component

Hello everybody.
We are using Ignition version 7.7.2 (b2014121709) with Java 1.8.0_25 running on Windows 7 64 bit and we are detecting a bug inside the Calendar Week View component.
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
(See also the attached screenshots)

  1. Set at least two events, one of them must overtake the day. In my example “Task 1” starts Monday at 6:00 AM and stops Tuesday at 3:00 AM.
  2. Click onto “Task 2“ for highlight it.
  3. Click onto “Task 1” for highlight it. Doing so the problem happens: “Task 1” will be drawn only in the second column.

[color=#FF0000]Note: the problem happens only if you click on Tuesday.[/color]
[color=#FF0000]Note 2: if you add a third event starting on Saturday 14 and stopping on Sunday 15 the control won’t draw it.[/color]

Why? :angry:
Any workaround? :laughing:

Thanks in advance.

Note 2 was fixed in 7.7.3. I’ll check if I can replicate your first note in 7.7.3

I couldn’t replicate either issue in 7.7.3. Could you try upgrading and let us know if that solves the problem?

Hello Kathy.

I’ve installed the version 7.7.3 rc1.
I can confirm that “Note 2” was fixed.
Unfortunately the first issue still persists.
I’ve recorded a short video to show you the problem. Note that, as soon the issue arises, the color of the task change and it loose the alpha blending.
You can download the video here:

Available for further details.

Could you make a small self-contained project that has this behavior and post it here? Thanks!


In my first post there is a project attached (WeekViewBugDemo_2015-02-16_1255.proj).
Do you see it?

:blush: Too early in the morning here, and not enough caffeine yet. Thanks!

Thanks for the project – I was easily able to reproduce the issue and I’ve filed a bug ticket to get it fixed.

This sounds good for me.
Have a nice debugging. :smiley:
Let me known in which release this issue will be fixed.

Diego Barile.

Look for the fix in 7.7.4-rc1 (not the beta).
