Description
Not sure if this is the correct way to submit a report, but I have uncovered a bug in a different thread. I have quoted the relevant posts below.
02-Sep-2018: Steps to reproduce updated.


Second update: I am also now getting image thumbs! I swear I didn't change anything, but I am now getting image thumbs for almost all my folders. Some still wont display. Maybe they will generate after more time.

There is now a new weird bug though.

If I have a folder with the right number of images in it to exactly fill the "grid" as far as the right hand side of the screen (in my case that's 8 columns of thumbs) then selecting any thumbnail in the 8th column makes MP2 crash. If there is less or more than 8 columns, it doesn't crash.

Can you try the library view (which is generally better to use). I have possibly an idea what could create the crash.
You are right. On screens with 8 columns of thumbs, in library view there is no crash if I select the thumbs in the 8th column.
Unfortunately my images are not that well organised, so I really need to use folder view :(
Reason is, that the folder style has a thumb layout and images a square layout. Before scrolling the crash happens because of not enough margins.
@Brownard
Any good idea? The folder style is common independent from aspect of other covers. The crash is probably created by smooth scrolling margins. I’ll try to fiddle a bit around tomorrow with the margins, if you do not have a better idea.

Steps to Reproduce:
In my case (may be different for other screen sizes / aspect ratios.
1) Use the WMC skin.
2) Create an image folder which has enough images in it to show 8 columns of thumbnails (enough columns to fill the screen, but not require sideways scrolling).
NOTE: The image folder MUST contain a subfolder (see below).
3) Browse to this folder and select any thumbnail in the 8th column. This should cause MP2 to crash.

    When I want to enter folder view under images I always get and empty view and number of media items as "-1" or MP is crashing.
    The strange thing: I'm in "show all MI's" and when switching to folder view it sets automatically the filter "year".

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Thanks, I can reproduce it here.
    When I want to enter folder view under images I always get and empty view and number of media items as "-1" or MP is crashing.
    The strange thing: I'm in "show all MI's" and when switching to folder view it sets automatically the filter "year".
    And I can reproduce this, so I'll try and fix both.

    @ge2301 The VirtualizingPanels expect/assume that all of the items are the same size in order to predict the position of the items that aren't being rendered. This means that the different sized folder container is going to cause layouting issues. It should never crash though so we should at least be able to avoid that.

    I know, but it's somehow not avoidable. We have 3 different base layouts: thumbnail, squared cover (audio), Poster. If I change the folder container to a squared format, it will crash in combination with poster und thumbnails in folder view. Additonally it would be hard to place text inside due to space. I was aware ofthe problem, but almost nobody uses the folder view, so probably thats why the problem was not found before. Deactivating smooth scrolling for only folder view is also not a good idea. I guess these are also the problems keeping you away from grouping rework ;)

    Hi,

    I am using folder view for example because my photographs mostly are not tagged. It odes not crash in the Tiranium Extended skin but it is soooo slow during each folder change if you have a lot of subfolders and a lot of pictures in each folder. Starting on the main pictures folder takes about two minutes to show the subfolders.


    Cheers

    Hi.
    but almost nobody uses the folder view,
    Don't think so, especially if you have a clean folder structure as you've collected images long before MP2 exists, then the database view is completely unusable. I always use folder view in Videos and Images. Only for Series, Movies and Audio (where extra metadata and fanart is available) I use the library view as only there the library view does make sense imho. I simply never had this crash up to now also ever since the very first beginning I'm using folder view...

    But I never were really happy the way folders and media items are displayed without respecting the aspect the images and/or thumbs have. They are cropped or distorted but mostly not shown properly. Maybe it's time to rework this so portrait, landscape and square "thumbs" could be used together in one list/grid...

    Yes, this is true too... Not only for pictures but most of the time when you enter a module (Audio, Series, Movies, Images,...) it take ages before the lists are shown. Once you are inside the lists it's getting better (but not good enough, imho) Also I have to say, the images part needs far the most time to be shown. Probably because there are the most media items contained (at least here)...

    Is this still crashing the app or does it meanwhile work?
    @HTPCSourcer Having now got 2.2.1 working I can report back:

    It is not crashing anymore but the behaviour is now totally different. In the same folder that was causing the crash before, now if I keep using the arrow keys to select the next image to the right, the arrangement of the thumbnails and the position of the image with focus changes erratically. I have tried to show this in the attached pictures:

    In this image I have selected a picture in the last but one column on the right. All good so far...
    All good.jpg

    Now I go one extra click to the right. Previously this would have caused a crash but instead now all the thumbnails rearrange themselves.
    1 right click.jpg

    And another click to the right...
    2 right clicks.jpg

    And a third....
    3 right clicks.jpg

    And a fourth.
    4 right clicks.jpg

    So now instead of a crash, is just all goes a bit crazy. Sorry guys - this one isn't fixed. :(
