Control Map (type 100/101) doesn't work within control groups (type 15) properly
New, WishlistPublic


Putting a map type inside a control group (type 15) does show some behaviour that is uncommon to every other control type I have worked with so far.

a) Positioning
Also all controls inside a control group should be placed at x=0, y=0 at the position x,y of the control this doesn't have an effect on the map type 100/101
b) Dragging the dialog
If "movingenable=true;" for the dialog the map type inside the control group does not move when dragging the dialog around

c)possible other problems: zooming in and out of the map and moving on the map gets unresponsive. I had other controlgroups/ elements in side the space of the map from which most where hidden as I tried it out.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Place a map type 100 inside the controls of a dialog

-> should work fine

  1. Add a control group to your dialog and place the map type 100 inside the control group

-> Problems a, b) from above are noticeable
and possible quirkiness in c) which might be due to the fact that controls or group of controls inside a control group are not properly placed above each other in the order they are called.

I noticed the same issue, still present in v1.98 and v2.00

Attached a reproduction mission with 3 examples:

  • Broken GUI (MapControl)

The Map Control breaks out of the GroupsControl and fills up the safezone completely.

  • Expected GUI (MapControl)

The Map Control has the same size as the GroupsControl (although has the incorrect size for demonstration purposes, so no scrollbars are shown)

  • Expected GUI (StaticControl)

The StaticControl has the correct size, but is contained in the GroupsControl, which is the expected behavior for for the MapControl as well.
