- found a solution
- didn't didn't find the cause of the problem
- propose changing numberbox widget name to numslider
Here we go...
After extensive debugging and hours looking at the screen in disbelief at this issue, I serendipitously discovered that changing the
namuberbox identifier in my CabbageWidgetTypes namespace to anything else fixed all the issues @Oeyvind reported.
As for why, I've really no idea. I even spent quite a lot of time after this discovery slowing working back to the old state in an attempt to find the real reason for the issues, but nothing appeared. It's extremely frustrating. Even though I've found a solution to the problem I still feel defeated by it!
Having a numberbox widget to doesn't correspond to a numberbox type kind of unnerves me. So I would like to change all instances of
numslider throughout the entire code base and documentation. Technically it is a slider, so using the slider moniker isn't so bad. But it would mean people having to update their instruments to this new widget name. I know it's a simple search and replace operation, but I understand if people are completely against this change.
I am going to push this change through for the moment so I can pick it up from work tomorrow, but it can be rolled back at any stage. What say you all? In the meantime I will continue to scratch my head in bewilderment.
