Lost Menu Bar While in Database [FIXED IN v1.3.9]

Postby Ozz » Tue Jun 07, 2011 3:02 pm

Oliver,

I lost the menu bar, at the bottom of ND1, while in the Database (My Data) area.
No amount of shaking the phone would bring it back.
So I was stuck in the database.
Had to turn the phone completely off then on again to restore the menu.

Hi Ozz,

Thanks for reporting.

After some effort I was able to reproduce this: if you switch to the database just when the tab bar is sliding down in expanded calculator mode, this occurs. Will be fixed in next update.

As there's been a bit of confusion with expanding/shrinking of the keys and device shake was probably never a good idea to begin with, I'm planning to have the calculator always in expanded mode, with the tab bar always sliding down after a short delay and never showing in semi-transparent mode when in non-calculator modes. This change is foreseen for v1.4.

By the way, you don't have to shut down your device. If an app misbehaves, double-click the home button and kill the app in question by holding it until it wiggles, and then tapping the delete symbol.

This has been fixed in v1.3.9.
The change previously foreseen for v1.4 also made into the update. Unlike what I said there's now a new preference for auto-expanding the calculator in the Settings app for ND1, so the behavior is customizable.

Hi Oliver,
Thanks for the tip regarding killing misbehaving apps.

I'm glad you found the problem.

Having the auto-expand behaviour as an option in Settings is a good way to go.
From my own experience -
    Having just got ND1, I spend a lot of time flipping between the database and calculator while creating & testing functions. So I want the menu - disappearing menu is inconvenient.
    I am sure that once the calculator is set up, I will be less likely to want the menu displayed.

Hi Ozz,

I've regretted even mentioning that functions can be written while in the database, and edited Writing User Functions to instead explain how to use the multi-line editor.

I'm solely using the database for re-arranging entries and deleting unwanted ones. (And the Sharing functions.)

I hope you noticed that if the calculator (v1.3.8) is not in expanded mode, the tab bar will not automatically slide down.

Cheers.
