Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245727
sometimes cant highlight contact
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
Description of problem:
When I click on some concrete places on the inactive contact in address book,
contact is not highlighted - but double click on the same place works as
expected. Maybe this are two different issues (see attached screenshot):
1) red part of contact - probably because of incorrect parsing of imported
2) green part on the screenshot: when card is wide enough, this is part of
the contact, that don't work for all my contacts
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. import attached "Sample, Elizabeth Lee.vcf"
2. select another contact
3. by clicking on same parts of the contact as red/green ones are on the
screenshot try to "select Elizabeth"
contact to Elizabeth can't be selected
contact to Elizabeth can be selected

contact with highlighted areas to click
Using evolution-2.11.3-5.fc8, I can reproduce the problem in the green area of
your screenshot. But the red area shows up as "(null):" and is clickable. The
"(null):" text looks like a bug to me (trying to print a NULL string).
My guess is the contact is rendered as a table, and the table cells are
responding to clicks while the table borders are not.
I'm going to move this upstream and have the Evolution authors look into the
problem. Please see  for further updates.
