Having some trouble with vertical gauges

Post by tarkenton » Sat Sep 05, 2015 9:24 pm

Hey folks, been playing with this off and on for a few weeks and I'm stumped. So figured I'd appeal to the greater minds than mine to see what I'm doing wrong. Long and short of it, I've been working on a new UI after having learned a good bit from Akaya's layout template that they were nice enough to share. Here's a shot of how it is supposed to/was looking.

Haven't touched any code that ought to effect the gauges, but lately, they've been doing this when I open the profile. I have to go into the scripts, click around a bit, and then they fix themselves.

The other interesting thing is that the bars will continuously shrink if I click on the different scripts that I have, even those that are not related to the UI.

Any insight into what exactly is going on would be awesome.

Here's the relevant code for creating my layout, and then manipulating the bars around.

Portioning the screen
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
UI.Right = Geyser.Container:new({
	name = "UI.Right",
	x = "75%", y = 0,
	width = "25%",
	height = "100%",
})

UI.Bottom = Geyser.Container:new({
	name = "UI.Bottom",
	x = 0, y = "80%",
	width = "75%",
	height = "20%",
})

UI.Status = Geyser.Label:new({
	name = "UI.Status",
	x = 0, y = "75%",
	width = "75%",
	height = "1%",
})

UI.StatusBars = Geyser.Container:new({
	name = "UI.StatusBars",
	x = 0, y = "76%",
	width = "75%",
	height = "4%",
})
Creating the HBox for the gauges
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
UI.BarBox = Geyser.HBox:new({
	name = "UI.BarBox",
	x = "33%", y = 0,
	width = "33%",
	height = "100%",
}, UI.Bottom)
Creating the gauges, giving them a random value when they're first drawn
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
UI.HPBar = Geyser.Gauge:new({
	name = "UI.HPBar",
	x = 0, y = 0,
	width = "16%",
	height = "100%",
	orientation = "vertical",
}, UI.BarBox)
UI.HPBar.back:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeBackCSS:getCSS())
UI.GaugeFrontCSS:set("background-color","red")
UI.HPBar.front:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeFrontCSS:getCSS())
UI.HPBar:setValue(math.random(1,100),100)

UI.ManaBar = Geyser.Gauge:new({
	name = "UI.ManaBar",
	x = 0, y = 0,
	width = "16%",
	height = "100%",
	orientation = "vertical",
}, UI.BarBox)
UI.ManaBar.back:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeBackCSS:getCSS())
UI.GaugeFrontCSS:set("background-color","blue")
UI.ManaBar.front:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeFrontCSS:getCSS())
UI.ManaBar:setValue(math.random(1,100),100)

UI.EgoBar = Geyser.Gauge:new({
	name = "UI.EgoBar",
	x = 0, y = 0,
	width = "16%",
	height = "100%",
	orientation = "vertical",
}, UI.BarBox)
UI.EgoBar.back:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeBackCSS:getCSS())
UI.GaugeFrontCSS:set("background-color","gold")
UI.EgoBar.front:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeFrontCSS:getCSS())
UI.EgoBar:setValue(math.random(1,100),100)

UI.PowerBar = Geyser.Gauge:new({
	name = "UI.PowerBar",
	x = 0, y = 0,
	width = "16%",
	height = "100%",
	orientation = "vertical",
}, UI.BarBox)
UI.PowerBar.back:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeBackCSS:getCSS())
UI.GaugeFrontCSS:set("background-color","green")
UI.PowerBar.front:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeFrontCSS:getCSS())
UI.PowerBar:setValue(math.random(1,100),100)

UI.WillpowerBar = Geyser.Gauge:new({
	name = "UI.WillpowerBar",
	x = 0, y = 0,
	width = "16%",
	height = "100%",
	orientation = "vertical",
}, UI.BarBox)
UI.WillpowerBar.back:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeBackCSS:getCSS())
UI.GaugeFrontCSS:set("background-color","purple")
UI.WillpowerBar.front:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeFrontCSS:getCSS())
UI.WillpowerBar:setValue(math.random(1,100),100)

UI.EnduranceBar = Geyser.Gauge:new({
	name = "UI.EnduranceBar",
	x = 0, y = 0,
	width = "15%",
	height = "100%",
	orientation = "vertical",
}, UI.BarBox)
UI.EnduranceBar.back:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeBackCSS:getCSS())
UI.GaugeFrontCSS:set("background-color","orange")
UI.EnduranceBar.front:setStyleSheet(UI.GaugeFrontCSS:getCSS())
UI.EnduranceBar:setValue(math.random(1,100),100)
Updating the gauges when the game sends new values

Re: Having some trouble with vertical gauges

After some playing, and deciding to scrap that profile for a new one, I think the problem lies in using an HBox to contain the gauges in instead of just slapping them inside of a regular container and positioning them manually.
