Selectbar changes buttonlist width

I'm trying to theme the gameui window, and have run into a strange problem.

The short way to describe it is, if I use a selectbar in the state to
highlight the selected item, the width of each buttonlist in the buttontree
increases.

Is there any reason this would happen ?

Chris,

As the issue is almost definitely an issue with the theme, it would be
helpful to have the XML for the whole buttonlist in question.

The whole current theme is updated at:
http://www.westnet.com/~chris/Mythtv/Retro-wide.tar.gz

game-ui.xml has the list in question (gametreelist), which derives from
buttonlistRetro in base.xml

If an extract is enough, this is the list:

<buttontree name="gametreelist">
<area>128,110,964,310</area>
<numlists>3</numlists>
<spacing>80</spacing>
<buttonlist name="listtemplate" from="buttonlistRetro" >
<statetype name="buttonitem">
<state name="selected" from="active">
<imagetype name="selectbar">
<filename>rk-selectbar.png</filename>
<crop>0,0,280,29</crop>
</imagetype>
<textarea name="buttontext">
<font>small_active</font>
</textarea>
</state>
</statetype>
</buttonlist>
</buttontree>

And this is what it derives from:
<buttonlist name="buttonlistRetro">
<area>0,0,280,250</area>
<layout>vertical</layout>
<spacing>5</spacing>
<buttonarea>0,0,100%,97%</buttonarea>
<statetype name="buttonitem">
<state name="active">
<area>0,0,100%,30</area>
<textarea name="buttontext">
<area>5,0,99%,30</area>
<font>small_inactive</font>
<cutdown>yes</cutdown>
<align>left,vcenter</align>
</textarea>
<statetype name="buttoncheck">

</state>
<state name="selected" from="active">

</textarea>
</state>
<state name="inactive" from="active">
<!-- imagetype name="buttonbackground">

You didn't set an area on the image, and thus it will take up the full
size, cropped on not. Sounds like you want:


<buttontree name="gametreelist">
<area>128,110,964,310</area>
<numlists>3</numlists>
<spacing>80</spacing>
<buttonlist name="listtemplate" from="buttonlistRetro" >
<statetype name="buttonitem">
<state name="selected" from="active">
<imagetype name="selectbar">
<filename>rk-selectbar.png</filename>
<area>0,0,280,29</area>
<crop>0,0,280,29</crop>
</imagetype>
<textarea name="buttontext">
<font>small_active</font>
</textarea>
</state>
</statetype>
</buttonlist>
</buttontree>

Thanks ! That did it.

Myabe you can spot this one too. I put a textarea title on the gameui
window. For some reason, the gamedetailspopup erases the title. The title
doesn't come back when you excape from the popup, until you hit a key on
gameui again.

You have a 800x600 popup with a 1280x720 fanart bleeding off multiple
edges of the screen. Remove or properly size the fanart and the issue
will go away.

Sigh.

Thanks again. I'll get the hang of this eventually.
