GUI: Toolbar unresponsive in full screen mode

Description

Hello VirtualBox Team,

After upgrading VirtualBox from 5.1.10_112026 to 5.1.12_112440, I noticed during operation in full screen mode, that the toolbar was appearing when bringing the cursor to the bottom, but non of its widgets/buttons were responding to mouseover or mouse clicks. The toolbar disappears as expected, when the mouse cursor leaves the bottom area of the screen.

Reverting to the older 5.1.10_112026 showed the toolbar being functional again. Respective Extension Packs had been installed on both versions prior to testing.

Installer used: VirtualBox-5.1-5.1.12_112440_fedora25-1.x86_64.rpm Host: Linux Fedora 25 64bit, KDE desktop Guest: Win7-Prof 64bit SP1, created under 5.1.10_112026, Guest Additions installed

Please come back to me if you need further information

Hello

I have the same situation.

Upgrade from 5.1.10_112026 to 5.1.12_112440 Installer used: VirtualBox-5.1-5.1.12_112440_openSUSE132-1.x86_64.rpm Host: OpenSUSE Tumbleweed 64bit, KDE 5 Guest: Windows 10 Pro

Toolbar does not respond to mouse click.

When I restored an old version (VirtualBox-5.1-5.1.10_112026_openSUSE132-1.x86_64.rpm), it works perfectly.

With regards

Same situation here with both 5.1.12 and 5.1.14 on Kubuntu 16.04.

The combination of KDE5 + Virtualbox seems to be the one that triggers this problem.

This affects me also.

I didn't see this ticket and just posted about the same issue here: #16415

This isn't just fullscreen mode, it also affects seamless mode where the mini-toolbar is used. It also affects any guest type whether Windows or Linux.

Also using KDE Plasma 5.8.5 and VirtualBox 5.1.14. Not sure if the problem came about due to a recent upgrade from Plasma 5.7 or Virtualbox, but it sounds like it was probably VirtualBox.

I also have the same trouble. The mini toolbar is displayed properly, but I can't select anything. There is no different where the mini toolbar is: at the top or at the bottom of the screen.

I downloaded test build of the Virtualbox (Version 5.1.13 r112787 (Qt5.6.1) and Version 5.1.15 r113168 (Qt5.6.1)) and Extension pack and I installed it. It works perfect. Mini toolbar is completely working. But in the release builds it does not work. Latest release build uses Qt5.8.0. It looks good but works worst =)

Hello guys,

First of all I wanted to thank you for your reports.

We are aware of some of the issues related to the mini-toolbar functionality. Nowadays mostly all of them are about *very* arbitrary (unstable) Qt5 behavior under various X11 desktop environments (DE) and window managers (WM). We are not aware of any issues under Windows or macOS hosts, so if there are any, please let us know.

Now about X11. Latest rework regarding the mini-toolbar behavior under X11 was released in 5.1.20. This rework had fixed some of the issues you might referring but certainly not every of them (there could be even regressions we are not aware of). So I wanted to ask you to do the following thing: everyone who wants to speedup the fix progress of that exactly annoying issue please check VBox of any version *newer or equal to 5.1.20* (just using the latest one would be enough) and write down a report here in the form:

  1. VBox version,
  2. Effective Qt5 version used (written in VBox About dialog),
  3. Host OS distribution and version,
  4. Desktop Enironment type and version,
  5. What exactly issue happens for you,
  6. Whether you have multi-monitor host and guest configuration or not.

Guest type is irrelevant. Also, please no need to add things like "happens for me as well", that makes it difficult to understand what exactly issue and which exactly VBox version you are referring to.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you guys for these reports.

As I see the most commonly mentioned issue is related to more-or-less recent KDE plasma. So I started with that one thing. I was not able to reproduce it with Ubuntu 16.04 (even with KDE plasma 5.8.5) but then I installed Linux Mint 18.1 as the mostly often mentioned OS during this defect cycle. Here I am able to reproduce that issue and currently investigating it.

Hi,

Wait, are you saying fix works (makes mini-toolbar accessible for mouse) for one of your host but isn't working for another? That's very strange because there was certainly a general issue with MDI-area widgets support broken on recent KDE which was fixed (avoided by not using MDI stuff anymore).

Could you please re-check the 2nd case to be sure that issue still reproducible there with the test-build? Please make sure you installed/running exactly the version you told. Thanks in advance.

The VB host Extensions and guest additions are both 5.1.23.115145

The mini-toolbar in seamless and full screen modes appears when the mouse cursor is placed at the screen top, shows highlighting of the top menu items (file,machine, etc.), but the menu subheadings (e.g. File/preferences...) do not drop down and no choices are available by mouse or keyboard. In this case the guest responds to the keyboard rather than the mini-tool bar.

Please tell me if I can answer other questions, and thanks again for the great work.

Do you mean the menu-bar items (of the mini-toolbar, such as File, Machine, View, etc) being highlighted when you are hovering them with mouse? But these items are not clickable with mouse?

but the menu subheadings (e.g. File/preferences...) do not drop down and no choices are available by mouse or keyboard. In this case the guest responds to the keyboard rather than the mini-tool bar.

Where the mouse clicks visually goes to? Just being ignored or comes to the guest as well?

May be it is possible to capture a video describing what happens for you in that case? Thanks in advance!

Yes, the menu-bar's top level items appear and are highlighted when I hover over them, but they are not clickable and none of the drop-down menu items appear (e.g. "Preferences..." under File, "Contents" under Help, etc.)

Mouse clicks are ignored, mouse hovering highlights, mouse clicks on the minitoolbar items are not sent to the guest.

Issue seems to be resolved, toolbar buttons are highlighted on hover, clickable and button menus are working.

Although virtualbox reports version of qt not installed on system and design of window widgets is different from repo version of virtualbox. (For example, menu items have a constant underscore, where in repo version of virtualbox underscores show up only when holding alt. Also testing version has a bit more "compact" ui and seems to be using default styling - whiter background on buttons on hover compared to blue outline in repo version.)

comment:41 Changed 20 months ago by frank

Our .run packages don't use the system-provided Qt version because these packages are universal and work also if there is no Qt installed on the system at all. If you want to run VirtualBox against your system-provided Qt libraries you need to compile VirtualBox yourself (or use any of the distributions we provide packages for).

Hehe, thanks :)
But I really wonder what happens for your particular host, that's mystery to me so far. Seems like Qt5 lib is somewhat glitches while trying to create popup menu for clicked element of the QToolBar control but I have no idea why. Might be the reason is in special hardware environment you have in that case (since that's MBP having Linux distribution installed, quite an unusual case).
I still wish to return to this issue later, currently busy with more important things. But thank you for your assistance!

comment:51 Changed 20 months ago by matthewls

Glad to help, and will in future. One clue may be that in the recent builds (intended fixes for this issue) the popup menus sometimes become detached from the main toolbar, e.g., float alone while the toolbar disappears, or appear on another screen (both of these happen on the systems that are now fixed WRT the MTB otherwise responding properly). I love plasmashell and KDE, but Qt seems from my non-coding perspective to be so complex (to simplify programming) that tracking these kinds of minor bugs could be a time sink. Thanks for fixing the rest of the machines :-)

Whether you have multi-monitor host and guest configuration or notMulti-monitor (3 screens) on host. Guest currently running with 1 screen

What exactly issue happens for you:

In full screen mode, I initially thought the mini toolbar did not appear at all, but now have found it is appearing on the wrong monitor.

My monitor setup, as shown in the display configuration is:

3 2 1

With the primary (Linux menus) on screen 2. It seems VirtualBox tries to number them differently (and was previously), the numbering it uses is:

3 1 2

The VirtualBox guest is full screen on monitor 1 (right hand screen), but the toolbar is appearing on monitor 3 (left hand screen)

It seems if I switch the guest to be fullscreen on monitor 3, the toolbar then appears in the correct place.

Previously, I was using Debian 8 (Jessie), and was able to run in seamless mode across all 3 monitors without major problems (On VirtualBox versions through to 5.1.22). Since upgrading to Debian 9, seamless mode has become unusable, and the toolbar is in the wrong place in full screen mode.

Happy to gather other debug if it will be helpful!

I'd say this one is preferable.

You mean it was working in one of previous test builds and stopped now in new release?

That's strange because the fix I did was for KDE hosts and you are speaking about LXDE (I thought it was working there all the time).

Yes!. It was working until the last 5.1.23 test build, but not in virtualbox-5.1_5.1.24-117012~Ubuntu~zesty_amd64.deb

It works in 5.1.25-117041 test build, but "Mouse Drag and Drop not works at all"

I just installed last test build 5.1.25-117090 (Qt5.6.1)

  1. Minitoolbar OK
  2. Mouse Drag and Drop OK

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

markos26, I don't see any related changes which came after 5.1.24. So if 5.1.25-117090 works for you but 5.1.24 does not then this must be some coincidence.

My case:

Insalled 5.1.26, with Extension Pack and GA - mini toolbar didn't work

After this,

Installed 5.1.25 (Testbuild) - worked, but with a big lag between mouse hovering and mini toolbar appearing.

Afther this,

I've reverted to 5.1.26, and will use it, for now.

Dsen, 5.1.28 fixed this on the MBP running linux! The "GUI: mouse events did not reach host windows behind the transparent VM window (Mac OS X hosts only; bug #16246)" suggested it might be fixed, and it is. Thanks much. mls

"Replying to matthewls:

it looks like my MBP running linux is the only remaining system with the mini toolbar problem, and if that's the case I'd declare victory on this bug.

Hehe, thanks :) But I really wonder what happens for your particular host, that's mystery to me so far. Seems like Qt5 lib is somewhat glitches while trying to create popup menu for clicked element of the QToolBar control but I have no idea why. Might be the reason is in special hardware environment you have in that case (since that's MBP having Linux distribution installed, quite an unusual case). I still wish to return to this issue later, currently busy with more important things. But thank you for your assistance!"

hi,

  • vbox 5.2.12
  • qt5.9.5
  • Ubuntu 18.04x64,
  • Gnome/X11,
  • hp zbook laptop
  • 1 inbuilt (laptop) display, 2x external hdmi monitors (diff. manufacturers), set up as 1920x1080/1080x1920/1920x1080 [middle monitor portrait format, otherwise all same rez]
  • 2x monitor guest configured for the external monitors.

Some resize problems on fullscreen see #16355

Auto-capture mouse/keyboard is on.

Dropdown menus don't work for the management window when moved to inbuilt monitor, works fine if dragged to either of the external ones. At times the dropdown appears at the edge of one of the external displays, but not consistently enough to determine as a workaround.

Mini-toolbar dropdowns don't ever work on the inbuilt display Mini-toolbar appears on the *other* external monitor if I set the guest to 1 display When I click into a vbox full screen display, the mini-toolbar moves to above the *other* display (ie, click on one of them & it swaps to to the other). At least the dropdowns work on the external monitors.

thanks

No User Interface (mini toolbox). Things tried: resolution changes; checking on and off all parts of the user interface; checking all tickets (and there are many going back a long way with no "real" resolution); searched for any other settings, help to make settings, and internal file changes without any luck.

Have been using Vbox for years. Need it working. It's "virtually" useless without the user interface.

Have you tried HostKey+Home? There are a lot of ways to skin a cat...
