We need to upgrade our gradients support to match the latest version of http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-images/#gradients

Comment 9 Tab Atkins 2012-12-19 17:41:06 PST
Patch is now ready to review.  I'll add tests before I try to land it for real.

I added both linear-gradient() and radial-gradient(), and their repeating variants, unprefixed.  They both accept the spec's current grammar, rather than the older grammar that our prefixed variants use.  They also serialize slightly differently, following the guidance in Images 4 that we should omit everything that can be omitted without changing the meaning.

As part of this, I also fixed up a few areas where we were relying on some members being non-null, because I violated those assumptions when parsing things. (I needed to, so I could use null-ness to determine whether it was originally specified or not, which is necessary for some of the serialization code.)

Patches up for review should always include tests (i.e. if you're setting the r? flag). If you just want someone to take a look, then it seems people label their uploads "wip" or something like that.

After a quick glance this looks fine to me. You should go ahead and make the tests.

Cool, I'll do so in the future.

Done!  Just copied all the existing -webkit-*-gradient() tests, and a few of the useful-looking old -webkit-gradient() tests, manipulating a few of them to increase test coverage.

Done, and I'll do so in the future.  I believe all the other change lines are self-explanatory given the patch title.

Using 'unprefixed' in a test name doesn't seem very forward-looking, but I don't have better ideas.

Might this ever write out "90degto " ?

Does this code get re-run when the size of the box changes, but gradient itself does not? I'm concerned that we don't always recompute the magic angle when we need to.

No need for ".0" on numeric literals that the compiler will convert to floating point for you.

No - if the parser sees an angle, it never sets the x/y, and vice versa.

However, there's no good reason to not make that an if/else instead of just two adjacent ifs, so I'll do so.

(You pointing this out also led me to discover that I was missing a case in the "don't print things that are default" effort - "to bottom" was getting written out when it doesn't need to be.)

It better do so - this is the same code that used to set the non-magic corner behavior, which needed the same tracking.  ^_^  A quick experiment shows that it does:

<!doctype html>
<div style="background: linear-gradient(to top right, red, white, blue);
            height: 100px; width: 100px;"></div>
<input type=range min=0 max=200 
  oninput="document.querySelector('div').style.width = this.value + 'px';"
  style="width: 200px;">
<input type=range min=0 max=200 
  oninput="document.querySelector('div').style.height = this.value + 'px';" 
  style="width: 200px;">

> No need for ".0" on numeric literals that the compiler will convert to floating point for you.

Ah, thanks.

Sorry, leftover cruft from the old parsing functions.

What about <div style="background: linear-gradient(to top right, red, white, blue); height: 100px; width: 80%;"></div>
and resize the container (or the window)?

I thought of that and tested it too.  ^_^  I wrapped the above div in a wrapper, changed the inner div to use percentages, and made the inputs change the wrapper's size.  It all works.

(Again, it *must* work, if our old gradient code worked.)

Ah, I see CSSGradientValue::image(), which is called from painting code, caches based on size, so you're ok.

Bleh, these test failures are single-pixel failures.  Rebased.

Can I get an r+ from one of my previous reviewers?

I think this would be better as
location = valueFromSideKeyword(a, isHorizontal);
if (!location)
  return false

You should keep non-exceptional code outside big if statements if possible.

You should edit the TestExpectation files for non-Chromium platforms to indicate that image results are missing for the tests that expect them.
