#1289 closed Defect (Invalid)

Wrong bindings placeholders for Folder Organization preference popup

Reported by: lapcat Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: Local Build
Severity: Trivial Keywords:


In JVTransciptPreferences.nib (all localizations), the Selected Tag property of the Folder Organization popup button is bound to the JVChatTranscriptFolderOrganization preference. The binding has a value of 1 for Multiple Values Placeholder, No Selection Placeholder, Not Applicable Placeholder, and Null Placeholder. This means that if the user has never set this preference, the menu item at index 1, "Folder For Each Server" appears in the popup. However, the actual behavior of this preference, which is determined in JVDirectPanel.m, is that if the preference has never been set by the user, it will put all transcripts in the same folder. This corresponds to the popup menu item at index 0, "Same Folder".

The value of the placeholders in JVTranscriptPreferences.nib need to be changed from 1 to 0. I would offer a patch, but nib diffs are not very informative, and anyone with Colloquy commit privileges can make this change easily in a minute or two.

  • priority changed from normal to lowest

It turns out that the placeholders probably never have any effect. I discovered that the reason the popup was set to "Folder For Each Server" was that the value of 1 comes from the registration domain.

well, if they never have any effect, i suppose this can be closed :)
