#4340 closed Bug (worksforme)

Progress bars look strange

Reported by: cantabile Owned by: jordan
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Qt Client Version: 2.32
Severity: Minor Keywords:


Shitty description, I know, but I couldn't come up with anything better. Here's a screenshot instead: link or alternative link Except for the second torrent, they are all 100% complete, with all the files downloaded.

If I uncheck "Compact View", the problem remains (scaled appropriately, of course).

This only happens with 2.32, both 2.22 and 2.31 look fine.

I use the qt client simply as an interface to the daemon. (transmission-qt -p 9091)

It's a feature, not a bug: the bar shows the progress of seeding when a ratio is set.

See ticket #4281 (Visualize seed progress, like the web client does).

I very much like this feature! I think the issue it is a bit confusing to my simple brain...

For example, at quick glance:

  • A growing white bar represents increasing Ratio (good thing)
  • However once it reaches the desired goal, the white becomes replaced by the green
  • End result is a ratio of 0.07 looks very similar to ratio of 6.14?!?

To me, once the goal is met, it should remain white to be more intuitive.

Your interpretation is wrong bulljit, there is no finished torrent on the picture you show (which I took), the green bars are torrents that have "seed forever" set, when one that has a seed ratio finishes the whole line goes into inactive state (text in gray, the progress bar also takes the disabled look, which is similar but not the same).

Besides, things change depending on the style used. For that screenshot I used style cleanlooks, the default Windows style is very different and colors can't be changed, style plastique is different, but just as cleanlooks colors can be changed (I'm experimenting on this).

Ok, so not a bug…

However, looking at r12464, I can't see a way to turn this feature off (without reverting said commit, of course). Would it be possible to make this optional?
