Error description

  • When using the WebSphere MQ Explorer, version 7.1, selecting
    "Manage filter", the window opens with the "OK" button off the
    bottom of the screen.
    
    The window can be resized to show the "OK" button, but the new
    size is not remembered the next time the operation is
    repeatedly.
    

Local fix

  • Reduce the size of the dialogue window to show the OK button or
    increase the display resolution.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of the WebSphere MQ Explorer 7.0, 7.1 and 7.5, who are
    make use of the following functions:
    
    - Filters in the WebSphere MQ Explorer Content view
    - Schemes to change the order of columns in the tables
    displayed in the WebSphere MQ Explorer Content view
    
    Platforms affected:
    Linux (x86),Linux (x86-64),Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The issue occurred when a large number of filters had been
    defined in the WebSphere MQ Explorer, and a request was made to
    display the filters in order to select one.
    
    The dialog box size expanded linearly with the number of entries
    (the filters) in the list box.  In the case where there were too
    many entries to fit on the screen, the scroll bar was not
    displayed, and the "OK" button was positioned off the bottom of
    the screen viewing area.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ Explorer utilises the 'List' widget of SWT when
    displaying the filter content.  The widget height was not being
    correctly calculated, causing the problem.
    
    The code fix associated with this APAR ensures that a more
    appropriate calculation is used to define the height of the the
    List widget, which results in the dialog box being sized to a
    screen visible size, and that a scroll bar is created
    automatically when there are more entries in the list than can
    fit on the panel.
