Possible widget display bug with Google Now Launcher

Postby grumpwagon » Thu Apr 14, 2016 3:11 pm

This very well could be a device or Android version specific issue, and not a dsub thing, but I thought I'd check.

On a LG G2 with Android 5.0.2 and the Google Now launcher, the DSub widget, (any size, I've tried them all) has a white outline around it (see screenshot here: http://imgur.com/3ZMunC2). No other widget that I have tried has this issue. This has just started happening within the last month or so. I believe it occurred at the same time as a Launcher update, not a dsub update, which leads me to believe it's probably not your fault, but I can't say for sure.

I vaguely recall reading an Android change stating they'd start putting borders around things that didn't use the entire amount of space allocated to them, but I might be misremembering that. If you can recreate the issue, maybe that's a good starting point? Obviously, this is very low priority.

EDIT: I just tested with another widget that doesn't take up it's whole space, and the border didn't appear, so scrap that theory.

Someone else reported the issue yesterday on the issue tracker: https://github.com/daneren2005/Subsonic/issues/677. Normally I would prefer dialog like that in the forums but since we already started a conversation there I am going to continue there.

Reall? I didn't. Change anything because I was never able to figure out why it was acting like that. Oh well I'm glad to hear they fixed it on their end.

Not that surprising that it was a Launcher issue, considering how it changed from a white splotch to a white border without you doing anything either. Thanks for looking though!
