Chat window doesnt scroll to bottom when opened


If there is lots of recent conversations with some contact (recent conversation showing is turned on) and you open a chat window with such contact, then it is showing not the last messages, scroll is not scrolled to the bottom of the window. Not a big issue, but one has to scroll to see what last messages was.

And i think, sometimes it doesn't scroll even upon getting new messages, but i can't reproduce this with 11895 build and maybe this was already fixed.

Can't reproduce this now with 2.8.x version. I'm thinking maybe long lines were causing this an as wrapping has been introduced in 2.8.0 maybe it has fixed this issue too.

Still seeing this issue with the latest nightly build. But this happens only with few contacts. Happens on receiving a new message (new chat window opens) or just opening the chat tab with some contacts. I have previous history showing in the chat window turned on. I suspect something in the history is causing window not to scroll till the bottom. But can't find the pattern.

You are seeing the fix. The problem is the parsing of the History xml that is not finished while the window is already visible. Open Window and send to bottom is the default. The history is written in the window after it is drawn.

This is finally fixed, though i see a minor visual thing, that it actually opens with a scroll being at top and then quickly scrolls to the bottom. I wonder, isn't there an option in java to open a window with scrool already being at the bottom?
