[DONE] Small UI issue: columns are resized when sorting

Postby codebling » Wed Jul 25, 2012 9:24 pm

If you click sort on a column header, all of the columns get resized.

On a related note, this isn't a bug, but a very minor usability enhancement (it will probably be a lot of work, so maybe it's not worth it, but I will make the suggestion anyway -- should probably go under feature requests but I figured that since the bug I mentioned above has to do with column sizes anyways...). Most of the columns seem perfectly fitted to the biggest of either the column name or the longest column data. But I've noticed that if the column data is very big, the column is set to an arbitrary size. That works great most of the time, but in some cases the columns don't span the width of the screen, even though one column isn't properly sized, so maybe in that case it could be made the largest possible while still fitting all of the columns on the screen. Does my explanation make any sense?

It is a bug, DBeaver incorrectly counts column width in some cases. It will be fixed in next version.
Thanks for report (your explanation was very well ;) )!
