git-gui: Allow the user to control the blame/commit split point
At one point I tried to present the blame viewer to an audience of people on a 640 by 480 pixel LCD projector. This did not work at all as the top area (the file data) was taking up all of the screen realestate and the split point was not adjustable by the user. In general locking the user into a specific ratio of display is just not user friendly. So we now place a split pane control into the middle of our blame window, so the user can adjust it to their current needs. If the window increases (or decreases) in height we assign the difference to the file data area, as that is generally the area of the window that users are trying to see more of when they grow the window. Unfortunately there appears to be a bug in the "pack" layout manager in Tcl/Tk 8.4.1. The status bar and the lower commit pane was being squashed if the window decreased in height. I think the pack manager was just not decreasing the size of the panedwindow slave properly if the main window shrank. Switching to the "grid" layout manager fixes the problem, but is slightly uglier setup code. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
