#1257 closed Defect (Won't Fix)

Full text search in transcript browser does not work.

Reported by: pyro3d Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: Local Build
Severity: Normal Keywords: Transcript Browser
Cc: grahamperrin

Description

When I try to do a full text search in Colloquy, nothing happens, but all other searches work completely.
At the same time as this occurs, the following error appears in the Console:

2008-07-13 19:12:59.435 Colloquy[465] * NSTimer discarding exception '* -[NSCFArray addObject:]: attempt to insert nil' that raised during firing of timer with target 7b4de60 and selector '_sendPartialString'

While I am using the latest source (as of 2008-7-12) , I have noticed this bug present in the current release version.

Workaround

I tend to:

  1. command-click the proxy icon (in window title bar) of the channel that I wish to search.
  2. from the menu, select Colloquy Transcripts
  3. in the resulting Finder window, use Spotlight.

That's not a panacea. YMMV :)

The Transcript Browser has been disabled in [3940]. It will not be turned back on, but eventually re-written.
