Description tgagne 2007-10-19 18:05:30 UTC
After executing a query that returns 3000+ rows, only 39 rows are returned.  The
user must scroll to the bottom of the window to get the next batch of rows. 
First 76, then 152, then 226, then 300, until finally there are no more rows.

try the icon "Last Record" in the toolbar "Form Navigation"

I'm not sure we're ready to close this one.  After running the query the window
that displays the results doesn't have a "last record" in the toolbar that I can
find.  Are you thinking of a report?

Comment 6 Frank Schönheit 2007-11-15 15:04:19 UTC
in fact it looks like this, yes ... Seems to be a problem of the theming ...
Comment 7 tgagne 2007-11-15 15:56:46 UTC
So, the last row icon is buried behind something else because of
theming--whatever that is...

Does that mean we could change a font somewhere or a 'theming'
something-or-other and the last-row widget will appear?

I suppose changing your desktop theming/appearance, or only changing your
desktop's standard font, could solve this. It would be a workaround only, of
course: The control is to use the font (and other appearance-related) settings
of your desktop's theme, and it should properly calculate the width of all
widgets. From your screenshot, it seems it doesn't. However, without being able
to reproduce this, it's hard to fix.
Comment 9 tgagne 2007-11-16 13:35:40 UTC
Any idea which font to change?

Usind KDE Control Center I've changed the general, fixed width, toolbar, meny,
window title, taskbar, and desktop fonts to Verdana 8, and the recount count at
the bottom of the screen seems unchanged.
Comment 10 tgagne 2007-11-16 13:39:27 UTC
Never mind.

I had to restart OpenOffice.  I don't know which one fixed it, but it's smaller
now and I can see the record control widgets.
Comment 11 tgagne 2007-11-16 13:45:41 UTC
Switching from 10-pt to 9-pt fonts fixed the problem.

Because the problem was actually cosmetic, I changed the bug's summary.
Comment 12 tgagne 2007-11-16 13:51:38 UTC
It was the "menu" font.

I changed all the fonts back to Sans Serif 10-pts except the "menu" font which I
left at 9-pts.
