[RFE] resize to maximum satisfiable dimension when some of requested dimensins exceed them
Last modified: 2016-02-10 15:20:22 EST
Description of problem:
resize to maximum satisfiable dimension when some of requested dimensins exceed them. This is a kind of follow-up to bug 863488 - when user resizes the window in a way that one or both dimensions exceed maximum resolution supported by driver, no resize occurs. IMO the resolution should be changed to maximum that can be set - [x = min(requested_x, maximum_supported_x), y = min(requested_y, maximum_supported_y)].
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. resize window so that x dimension of spice widget exceeds 2560 (or actual maximum x dimension at time of verification) and y dimension changes within supported limits
no resolution change takes place
x is resized to 2560
y is resized to desired size
I think it should be an RFE, it sounds like a nice idea however
It's not obvious for the agent to know the reason of failure, and it doesn't know the max size of the surface0 either. It will be a bit tricky to keep aspect ratio. Getting a resolution that is not what you requested might be worse than keeping currently working configuration.(imagine off by 1, you get scaling artefact, and it's hard to tell if it's device fault or client fault etc). I am marking this as conditional devel nack for now.
