Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509636
Software Log Viewer filter box scrambles entered text
Last modified: 2009-07-16 03:24:38 EDT
Description of problem:
The Software Log Viewer applet (/usr/bin/gpk-log) has a filter box that allows you to display only the updates that contain the entered string. Despite there being a "Filter" button, it searches the installed package list a short time after each character is entered. The "Filter" button appears now to obsolete.
If the characters are entered reasonably quickly (i.e. before the search for the previous character completes and it displays on the filter bar), the sequence of such characters is reversed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Type in the filter box reasonably quickly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type a search term such as "kernel", "ker" (pause then add) "nel", or "fred"
"lenrek", "reklen", or "derf" appear in the seach box and are used to filter the installed packages.
"kernel", "kernel", or "fred" appear in the filter box ... with characters in the order typed(!)
Once the filter text entered returns no matches, any further text entered is no longer scrambled but appears as typed. This indicates that the issue could be caused by the applet initially searching the installed packages as each character is typed.
