Sourceware Bugzilla – Bug 3327
Source window backtraces when "Up/Down One Stack Frame" button is clicked
Last modified: 2006-11-17 20:27:49 UTC
The source window when it is inintially brought up and either the "Up One Stack
Frame" or "Down One Stack Frame" button is clicked on, a backtrace is generated
If you select a stack frame from the Current Stack window before clicking one of
those buttons, all is well. It seems this problem occurs because not stack
frame is selected when the window is brought up. Probably the most current
stack frame should be auto-selected at start-up.
Another item that is in the same vein, once no more stack frames can be selected
in a particular direction, that button should be de-sensitized.
More bugs/suggestions from the IBM guys:
1) If we click one frame in StackWindow, appropriate lines are
highlighted, but the SourceWindow do *not* adjust the content in it to
display the highlighted lines, and always display source code from
line #1. Could we make SourceWindow to refresh, and display the
highlighted lines in the middle of SourceWindows, when we click on frame?
2) When I click one frame, there are multiple lines are highlighted.
For example, If I click "baz" in StackWindow, line #42, #50, and #57
are highlighted at the same time. Is it expected? IMO, we could only
highlight the *current* frame, instead of call tree, which has been
displayed in StackWindow.
3) Multiple source file is not support.
If I put do_it() in tester1.c, and compile the test like this,
$ gcc -g tester1.c tester2.c -o test -lpthread
and then fire frysk, we could find do_it() in StackWindow, and the
line number is #11(the correct line number), but line #11 in tester2.c
is highlighted, instead of line #11 in teser1.c.

* SourceWindow.java (doStackUp): Fixed up for #3327.
2006-10-11 Mike Cvet <email@example.com>
* SourceBuffer.java (createTags): Strip spaces from the function
* SourceView.java (scrollToFunction): Get rid of newlines and
spaces in the incoming string.
* SourceWindow.java (updateShownStackFrame): Upon call, send the
function string to the SourceView to scroll to. Fixes #3327.

* SourceBuffer.java (setCurrentLine): Only highlight currently
selected stack frame. Addresses #3327.
Hi, Mike, here is a new problem about Up/Down button.
Step to reproduce,
1) fire frysk, ""Debugging an Existing Process" -> Select a test caes(with
2) After SourceWindow opend, slecect one stack frame in StackView, and click
Up/Down, now these two buttons still work.
3) Click "Run" and then click "Stop", the "Up/Down" could *not* work.
This problem is being worked by Adam Jocksch. Mike cleaned up several problem
with this buugzilla, Adam is working this particular issue. He is a fulltime
student and parttime Red Hat employee.
I tested this today and it appears that multiple source files now work thanks to
some changes in the DOM checked in by Rick yesterday. I tested it in a manner
similar to the one described by Yao in his initial description. I believe Rick
has a slightly more complicated example with which it also works.
I'm now taking a look at the other problem that Yao mentioned (intermittantly
broken behavior for the stack control buttons when running/stopping).
I've done some more searching on this bug and it appears that the reason why the
buttons become inoperative is that the array returned by
has length zero. I'm not yet sure why this is the case and I will continue
looking into it.
Button problem moved to #3537.
Original reason for this bug being opened is now fixed!
