TODO plugin unusable
« on: October 12, 2006, 02:23:31 pm »

what happened with the TODO plugin ?

i can't use it any longer, because it doesn't me allow to type in my username !!!!
only the name of the login to the actual computer is possible

this behaviour is unacceptable !!!

on the most computers where i'm logged in i'm not logged in with the name which i want to see in the TODO notes !!

nice would be a list of available user names stored in the config file and of course the ability to type in a new one, which is used in subsequent added TODO's as default

thanks & brgds, tiwag

I have never known it to be different.

as i said already, it was possible to type in a username, which isn't possible in it's current state.

as i can see from the commit log, you have done some changes from combobox to choice controls

edit:
what do you think is the save and load settings good for,
when you don't have a possibility to add entries for a username and type ?

yes, probably because it's no longer a combobox (it that the reason ??) you can't type in something yourself anymore ?

combox -> choice : horrible bug with wx 2.6.2 on linux -> combobox always lags 1 selection behind, pure horror that is.

So if the change to combox is the cause, might be better to wait untill wx2.6.2 is kind of replace in "most" distros by 2.6.3 (there's it's ok again)

@tiwag : do you think you have time to do a test to see if it's purely due to the fact it's no longer a combobox ?

i tested already  :)

but you can do a test:

start CB with a new personality and try to use the TODO plugin,
i'm interested how far you come  :D

try it out please, how do you want to define a username ??? if you don't have an edit field to type it in  :shock:


don't care about me, i can edit my config file to my needs, but it is still a bug in the current TODO plugin,
that's what i'm sure

btw. didn't know about the linux problems, if the comboboxc isn't good for linux, we have to find another solution,
we can discuss it here, how we can fix it.

possible solutions :
 - leave it as it is and wait till wx2.6.3 has more momentum on linux, and then switch back to combobox
 - add an extra text field which get higher precedence (the moment something in there) above the choice list
 - switch back to combobox now, and the linux users have to wait untill wx 2.6.3 has momentum

By the way, there should at least be 1 user ? no ? I tried out on a fresh install --> showed the logged in user

other possible solution:
- use choice for linux and/or wx < 2.6.3 
  and  combobox for windows and/or wx >= 2.6.3

yes, that's what i've written in my first posting,

but guess how lucky you are, if you've logged in as "Vertrieb2" ?

in the code you could ifdef (although I hate that), but in the xcr ??

You're overreacting. If you think manually retyping the username after the dialog is "unusable", you apparently never used Microsoft products. I agree that it's not the way it should be, but still, it's a minor missing feature.

// TODO (UndesiredUsername#1#): This shit needs some work done!
Transforms to:
// TODO (Phatency#1#): This shit needs some work done!

Try to live with that for a while :P
