EiffelStudio 7.3.x Releases

7.3.x.y (...)

New features

  • vision2: Added {EV_PIXEL_BUFFER}.stretched which gives you a stretched version of an EV_PIXEL_BUFFER. The quality of the stretch image is much better than of EV_PIXMAP for Windows. On Unix it is the same quality as EV_PIXMAP. (rev#91208)


  • vision2: Improved stretching of EV_PIXMAP on Windows by using the Color on Color stretching mode of the Win32 API StretchBlt. (rev#91207)
  • autotest: Now tests will be executed under the location of the ECFs, and not in the Testing subdirectory of the EIFGENs directory. (rev#91247)

Feature removed

  • Dropped BIT type.

Bug fixes

  • vision2: Fixed {EV_GRID_COLUMN}.required_width_of_item_span to only take into account visible item. (code review#9356052 and rev#91224).
  • vision2: Fixed a resizing bug when you have a vertical/horizontal box with a minimum size set, if one of the item has a minimum size larger than its parent, then in some circumstances the child will be shrinked beyond its minimum size causing some visual glitches. See regression tests TEST_EV_CONTAINER.test_horizontal_box_resizing and TEST_EV_CONTAINER.test_vertical_box_resizing for scenario. (code review#9351166 and rev#91251).
  • wel: Fixed a 64-bit truncation bug in WEL which was only found when compiling a Vision2 project using an EV_COMBO_BOX on Windows 8 using VCExpress 2012. (rev#91290).

User changes

  • base: Storables made using SED from version 6.6 or earlier of EiffelStudio not using the `is_for_fast_retrieval' setting won't be recoverable.
