Some minor bugs? [solved]

edited October 2012 in OpenSesame

Hi Sebastiaan (and others)!

Today I found some minor bugs in OpenSesame 0.25 on a win XP machine. I'm not quite sure if these are indeed bugs, or just system dependent flaws, though. Hence this topic.

  • The screen resolution of an experiment could not be adjusted in the 'General Properties' window. It could, however, be adjusted in the experiment code (in the 'General Properties' window as well, of course, but not via the buttons that were obviously meant to be used to adjust the resolution).

  • Not sure if this is due to the settings of the pc, but I noticed the number of repeats in a loop is defined using a number with a comma as decimal separator. This is, as we both know, completely legal in Dutch maths. But since OpenSesame is in English, I was expecting a point.

  • This is probably a matter of taste, but when one adjusts the title of an item (a sketchpad, for example) and puts in a space (and I presume any other illegal character), OpenSesame automatically corrects this (if one were to call the sketchpad 'fancy toad', OpenSesame would adjust it to 'fancytoad' . Wouldn't it make more sense to put in an error message, similar to the error you get after naming a variable incorrectly?

If any of this is already fixed in 0.26 (please pardon me for not checking), then consider this topic fixed ;)

Cheers!

    Hi Edwin,

    Thanks for your vigilance!

    Yes, that was nasty bug... It's solved in 0.26.

    I noticed the number of repeats in a loop is defined using a number with a comma as decimal separator. This is, as we both know, completely legal in Dutch maths. But since OpenSesame is in English, I was expecting a point.

    Qt, which is the graphical toolkit, adheres to the locale settings of the system. So that would explain the use of the comma on a Dutch system (we/ the Dutch really should cut that out, btw ;-) )

    but when one adjusts the title of an item (a sketchpad, for example) and puts in a space (and I presume any other illegal character), OpenSesame automatically corrects this (if one were to call the sketchpad 'fancy toad', OpenSesame would adjust it to 'fancytoad' . Wouldn't it make more sense to put in an error message, similar to the error you get after naming a variable incorrectly?

    Hmm, I suppose I could have OpenSesame throw a warning or something, but nevertheless auto-correct the title. Did you find it confusing the way it is now?

    Cheers,

    Hi Sebastiaan!

    1. Great!
    2. Yeah... However proud I may be of our mathematical heritage, it's not making things any clearer, so I guess you're right :p
    3. Well, it would give a nice indication of what someone is doing wrong (so the mistake wouldn't likely be repeated) and software automatically adjusting stuff I put in tends to piss me off (although, in this case, I don't see much harm done). Could be just me, but I kinda feel the computer is supposed to do exactly as I tell it to do (as wrong as it may be), not the other way around. Wouldn't it be common courtesy to inform a user of why something (s)he did is being adjusted?

    Cheers!
